Q: In the BASIC Power-Density Mass Workout you have V-handle pulldowns as the only lat exercise. I know you I.D. that as the Ultimate Exercise for lats in The Ultimate Mass Workout e-book, but those hurt my forearm. Can I do regular [pronated-grip] chins instead?
A: Yes, but you won’t be able to do both Power and Density for chins—unless you’re freakishly strong on that exercise…
We suggest chins for Power and regular pulldowns for Density, like this…
Chins, (pyramid) 3 x 9, 7, 5-6
Pulldowns, (4X) 4 x 10
Of course, if you’re a freak, you can go ahead and do a 4X sequence on chins after your power sets. But most trainees will need less than bodyweight, so pulldowns is the answer. Power plus Density for muscle immensity.
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.

Ripped Muscle Now: Harvard Research
Harvard researcher Dr. Dimitrios Stamou discovered an enzyme that eats bodyfat. It’s helping women and men lose up to 21 pounds on average in less than 28 days.
Plus, it can help bodybuilders get freaky ripped faster than ever (see the pic of the 69-year-old who is shredded at the link below).
Remember, when you’re leaner, you look bigger than ever… And best of all, your body can MAKE this fat-blasting enzyme by eating these specific foods… and they taste GREAT.
Our colleague, the man who owned the gym that Lou Ferrigno trained at in “Pumping Iron,” turned us onto this. He’s using it himself to shed fat faster than ever, and he’s in his 50s. Get the details and see his photo HERE.
