Ezine #905: Rhythm Method for More Muscle Hypertrophy

I’ve been doing mostly compound exercises with X-centric on the first set, two standard sets, and speed on the last one. I notice you’ve been doing two X-centric sets instead of one. Is that better?

Ezine #902: Heavy/Light, X-centric Sets and Muscle Hypertrophy

I really like X-centric sets [lifting in one second and lowering in six]. Great muscle feel and pump. I’m getting ready to use a version of the Heavy/Light program in X-traordinary Muscle-Building Workouts I just got. My question is, If I want to use an X-centric set or two for each bodypart, should they go on heavy day or light day?

Q: I tried DP 4X on my big midrange exercise with a speed drop set after the last one. Wow, what an amazing feel and pump. I do behind-the-neck presses for delts. Can I use it on those too if I’m careful?

Ezine #879: No-Cardio Fat Loss

Q: I read that you guys got super ripped without doing any cardio. I also saw that Arnold did no cardio to get lean, relying on weight training only. Is that true?

Slight Volume Uptick to Get Big Quick

I have found that your change-to-gain method works. I have put on five pounds in the past month, but I know it’s more muscle than that because my abs are sharper. My question is, do you consider adding sets enough of a change to grow?

Light the Iso-TORQ Fuse to Get Huge

When I use regular TORQ (30-20-15) on isolation exercises like leg extensions, can I add weight each set?

Do No Harm

/ Posted 07.31.2014

The phrase, “First, do no harm,” is attributed to the Hippocratic oath that is historically taken by physicians. It should be the mantra of any bodybuilder who sees bodybuilding as the lifestyle that it was meant to be. Lifestyle means a way of living.

One Intra-Set Change to Jack Up Muscle Gains

Q: I love 4X because it’s 10 reps per set. I get the “hypertrophic tension time” of more than 40 seconds on every set. My workout partner likes DP 4X better, adding weight each set as the reps decrease (12-10-8-6).

Rip Up and Grow With the Flow: Hormone-Zone Muscle Training

In Xtreme Lean you have the “High-Definition Workout” (pages 76-78), and you say to use it five days a week. I don’t think I’ve seen you recommend that many workouts in a row. What’s the reason [for five consecutive days of training]?

Eye-Popping Biceps Peak–and More Muscle On Your Physique

For the uninitiated, the “in-for-out, out-for-in” rule for biceps is that an inward grip for biceps exercises, like close-grip curls or concentration curls, emphasizes the outer head–which is the “peak” head…

High-End Hypertrophy Progression

Q: I got the Power-Density Mass Workout 2.0 and was motivated by [Mr. America] Doug Brignole’s interview and how he uses only one exercise for each muscle. I notice the he adds weight over five sets so his reps fall–but I’m with you and think 50 reps is a bit much–and boring. My question is, if I use your TORQ method [30-20-15] on two or three exercise per bodypart, should I add weight over those three sets?
