Q: I love the Super-TORQ mass method you outline in the Power-Density 2.0 e-book. I’m 55 years old, so moderate weights are great for me, but I can’t quite wrap my head around doing such high reps at every workout. I alternate with heavy workouts as you suggest in the e-book because I’ve brutalized my joints over the years (screw you, heavy benches—Lol). Is there a MODERATE-power/Super TORQ workout I could use instead?

Q: I’m blown away by your Super-Size Crash Course e-book. Great workouts and innovations in training. Love the [Progressive-Speed 4X]. I felt bigger just reading about it. LOL! And bigger yet after trying it. One question: You often say that you don’t need heavy lifting to get big, but you had [Jordon Williamson, your test subject] doing heavy training every other workout in Phase 1. Could he have made similar or even better size gains without that heavy training?
A: Excellent question, and, yes, we often say that trainees can get big without ultra-heavy training. Research verifies that fact. [Read more…]
