Super Rep – Syracuse, NY
The fact is, most people have no idea how strong they already are, nor do they realize how strong they can ultimately become. I want to show you my SuperRep™ static contraction technique of lifting weight in only your strongest, safest range of motion. If you are an average male you’ll soon be lifting weights like this:
- Bench Press: 500+ lbs. (230+ Kg)
- Deadlift:: 600+ lbs (270+ Kg)
- Leg Press: 1,500+ lbs. (680+ Kg)
Think those weights are impossible for you? Don’t. I know regular people who can double all of those lifts.
But that’s not the real value of this training method. The real value is the health benefits derived from productive strength training. Those benefits are well established in medical research. Productive strength training delivers:
- Lower blood pressure
- More lean (muscle) mass
- Higher fat burning 24/7
- Increased natural HGH and testosterone
- Increased libido
- Increased HDL ‘good’ cholesterol
- Improved cardiac function
- Lower bodyfat
- Greater bone density
- Stronger tendons and ligaments
- Increased energy
- Improved, toned appearance
- Increased sense of well-being
Just look at that list! Those are honest, scientifically validated benefits of productive strength training. Unlike many areas of science and medicine, there is no opposing opinion that says, “That’s not true, people are better off not exercising and having less strength and muscle.” The evidence is overwhelming that productive strength training is enormously beneficial.
In fact, the percentage of muscle a person has is used as a “biomarker of aging”. So having more muscle literally means you are a younger person, despite when your birthday is.
I want every single one of the benefits on that list! But…and this is a BIG ‘but’…I want them with as little time and effort as possible.
I know some people like to go to the gym every night after work and spend hours working out. Then spend their weekends doing the same. That’s just fine for them, but that’s not me. I have other interests that require my time so I want to do the absolute minimum exercise in order to get the enormous health benefits on the above list. If that sounds like you too, please read on.
THE THINKING-PERSON’S WORKOUT
Fastest Known Method to Build Muscle and Increase Strength
And each workout you do will contain 5 different exercises (10 exercises in total) so a workout represents just 25 seconds of actual muscle training.
Ultimately, if you chose, the revolutionary SuperRep methodology will make you stronger than you’ve ever been in your life because you’ll be training a new, super-efficient way using ultra high intensity but very brief and relatively infrequent workouts.
I want you to know what I mean by “stronger than you’ve ever been.” I mean, male or female – any age – I can show you how to get stronger than you were in high school, stronger than you were in college, stronger than you were that summer you spent working in construction, or on the farm or whatever!
The truth is any training method that involves lifting heavy weights will work to some degree and for some period of time. What GET THIS STRONG offers you is a method that requires the minimum possible time investment and, because of meaningful measurement, the ability to sustain your strength and muscle mass month after month and year after year.
And I’ll guarantee you this, too. On every exercise you’ve ever performed, from bench press to barbell curls to lat pulldowns, you name it…you will achieve new personal records in all of them. And you’ll do it without drugs and without wasting your time in the gym with needless workouts.
And, ladies, please don’t be intimidated by any of the foregoing. GET THIS STRONG is every bit as much for you as it is for any man, from total beginner to powerful athlete. In fact, Chapter 3 is called “Women, Muscle and Fat Loss” and it specifically talks about how women have been lied to on the subject of strength training. (Think about those magazine pictures of perfect models holding a pink, one pound dumbbell. Please. Women are meant to be strong and they have the same muscle physiology as men.)
The 3 Laws of Muscle Growth
This strategy is so simple, because it’s based on three fundamental laws of human muscle growth. And I’ll tell you exactly what those three laws are:
Law #1: Muscle grows in response to high intensity overload. That’s why we lift weights. Because just pumping your arm up and down all day won’t increase its muscle size or strength. But if you hold a heavy weight in your hand while you pump up and down, your muscle has to work at a higher rate of intensity…and that triggers new growth.
That’s easy to understand, right? So if you want to increase the size, strength and tone of, for example, of your chest muscles…you’d do a high intensity chest exercise. But guess what? Nobody seems to know what exercises really deliver high intensity. Why can I say that? Because I actually measured the intensity of the ten most popular chest exercises and I know which ones really deliver. Look at this chart:
This chart shows the relative intensity of the ten most common chest exercises. Every time I go in the gym I see guys doing number 2 “to really blast the chest.” And number 4 is probably the most recommended chest exercise of all time!
What a joke!! As you can see for yourself, numbers 2 & 4 deliver only a fraction of the intensity of the best chest exercises. So doing the others is a waste of your time and effort because they can’t possibly deliver the results of the top exercises…and this isn’t my opinion, it’s a law of physics!
I also used multiple test subjects to scientifically determine the most effective and efficient exercises for biceps, triceps, forearms, upper back, lower back, shoulders, traps, abs and legs.
Knowing the importance of intensity and the exact exercises that deliver it best is the first step in engineering the ultimate training program. Now we need to know the second law:
Law #2: The higher the intensity of muscular output, the shorter the duration must be. This is another easy principle to understand. For example, humans can run really fast…but only for about 100 meters.
Or, humans can run for 26+ miles…but only at a slower speed. Fine. Now…can you guess how this law applies to maximizing the intensity of muscular output during a workout in the gym? Since I absolutely love graphs, I’m sneaking in another one…
If you want a very high intensity workout, it MUST be very short. But how many times have you been told to do an enormous workout routine that takes 1+ hours?
How can that possibly have the level of intensity of a routine lasting a total of 1 MINUTE?
It can’t. Again, this is not opinion…this is a universal law. That’s Why Short Workouts Are Better
First you need to know the very best exercises for delivering the highest overload to each muscle group. Then you need to use those exercises in the best possible way to maximize overload and minimize the time spent doing it. And that’s very good news!
It literally means short workouts are more beneficial and efficient than long workouts. Wow! But it gets even better when you learn the third law:
Law #3: The more intense your workouts, the more rest you need between workouts. And since the way you keep progressing toward your muscle size and strength goals is to increase intensity on each workout…that means you train less and less frequently. Again, look at it visually:
With a low intensity workout, you don’t need very much rest time. That’s why so many people can start out lifting weights two or three times per week and make some progress.
But as you get stronger, your workouts get more and more intense…and you absolutely, positively need more time off. Yet how many times have you been told to keep training three days a week?
That strategy must ultimately fail. It leads to “plateaus,” “staleness,” thinking you are a “hard gainer,” and all the other maladies that bodybuilders and athletes fall prey to, including fatigue and susceptibility to colds and flu, because universal biological laws cannot be broken. Ever. (P.S. The truly desperate turn to injecting illegal drugs as a means to cheat their body’s metabolism and safeguards. Ultimately, that will fail also. It has to.)
Don’t Gamble On Bodybuilding Myths
Why gamble on testing gym lore and bodybuilding myths? I’ve just shown you the 1-2-3 of rational, effective and efficient strength training. Yet there is so much “advice” offered in gyms by people who have never scientifically tested any of the advice they give out. By listening to the free advice you can become paralyzed and totally frustrated!
These aren’t principles I’ve just worked out “on paper.” These are principles proven in the gym by over 200,000 bodybuilders, athletes and just regular folks. Take a look at the results of one of the studies using Static Contraction Training.
Massive Gains In Just 10 Weeks ……Because It Works!
In just 10 weeks of Static Contraction, trainees (who were hardcore bodybuilders that had been lifting “heavy” for a long time and averaged about 38 years of age) achieved the following average gains: (If you are younger or have been training less than these hardcore lifters, you’ll likely do BETTER.)
- a 51.3% increase static strength
- a 27.6% increase in one-rep max in full range of motion! (without doing full range lifts for 10 weeks!)
- a 34.3% increase in ten-rep max in full range of motion! (see above)
- gained 9.0 pounds of new muscle (one subject gained 29 pounds of muscle!)
- lost 4.9 pounds of fat
- gained 1/2 inch on each bicep
- gained 1.1 inches on chest
- gained 1.2 inches on shoulders
- lost 0.4 inches on waist
All of this was done with workouts containing less than 2 ½ minutes of exercise!
Have you had size and strength gains like the above in the last 10 weeks?
Huge Gains For Golfers Too
We did another study with some long-time golfers to see if static strength training would help a full-range-of-motion sport like golf.
It did…these 40-something golfers added up to 30 yards to their drives. But here is what is really interesting…look at the strength increases they achieved:
- Chest +58%
- Lats +60%
- Shoulders +57%
- Quads +86%
- Hamstrings +78%
- Abs 170%
- Low Back +58%
- Calf +51%
- Triceps +133%
- Biceps +72%
- Forearm (flexors) +87%
- Forearm (extensors) +93%
- Overall Average Strength Gain +84%
And get this…they achieved the above in an average of only 6.6 workouts taking an average of just 2.2 minutes of actual exercise!!! That’s 14.5 minutes of exercise time TOTAL… done over six weeks of time!! (By the way…the four women on the study outpaced the four men in overall strength gains…the men achieved a 73% gain and the women achieved 95%!) Have your last seven workouts increased your strength 84%?!!!
No other training method has hard facts like these to back it up. That’s just one reason why magazines like Muscle & Fitness, Flex, Muscle Media, Martial Arts Training and so many others have repeatedly hailed this training as “revolutionary.”
And that is how Static Contraction Training works!
