Moderate-Weight Mass Building

/ Posted 03.29.2013

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?

Small Bones, Big Arms: New Size on Your Bi’s and Tri’s

Q: I’ve been training like a madman for six months, but my arms haven’t budged. I’m getting stronger, and I do see my biceps vein more, but my arms are still skinny. A guy at the gym told me it’s because I have small bones. My wrists are under 7 inches around, and he said I can’t expect much size with small wrists. Is that true?

High-Rep Hyper-Growth: Only Once a Week for a More Massive Physique

Q: Doug Brignole’s high-rep method [explained in his interview in The Ultimate Power-Density Mass Workout 2.0] sounds interesting. I’d like to try it once a week for upper body. Do you think it would be okay to do an entire workout with his "Super TORQ" for chest, back and arms, and at the other workouts that week do standard training?

TORQ Up Power-Density: A New Twist for Muscle Immensity

/ Posted 03.08.2013

Q: I’m torn between heavy training and higher reps [TORQ]. I like ending bodyparts with lighter-weight, high-rep sets for longer tension times and more pump, and now I’m hearing that ALL-high-rep workouts are best. I’m almost 30, but I want to grow as fast as possible. Should I try all-high-rep training for a while, or is that more for when I’m older and can’t train heavy anymore?

Research: Grow More Muscle With Simplified 2-Way Workouts

Q: You guys have opened my eyes to new ways to grow muscle. Your explanation of the myofibrils (force generation) and sarcoplasm (energy fluid) and how they both contribute to size is excellent. To build both of those fast, I want a simple, no-bells-and-whistles heavy-light program. What would you suggest?

Forearm Freakiness: Eye-Popping Muscle Hanging Out of Your Shirtsleeves

/ Posted 02.19.2013

Q: I need some forearm mass. In a short-sleeved shirt I’d rather have some beef hanging out rather than my twigs. What is a good routine to pack on some mass on my front and back forearms? And I need some veins too.

Fat-Jacking, Muscle-Packing Workout Tips

Q: I’m ready to start the four-days-per-week Fat-to-Muscle Workout. I like training each muscle only once a week, and I think the heavy work combined with negative-accentuated (X-centric) sets is just what I need to rip up and build up at the same time. However, I’m interested in your new TORQ technique. High reps with short rests would give the workout an interesting new dimension. Should I use it, and, if so, where should I put it in the routine?

Bodyfat Gone, Muscle Mass On: Best Gym Moves Now

Q: I got your updated 4X Mass Workout 2.0. I love the [higher-rep] TORQ method and 4X combo workouts. I feel it working already–the burn is intense. Question: I’m now trying to drop fat and build muscle, so will those [higher reps] help or should I include negative-accentuated [X-centric] sets too?

Muscle-Growth-Threshold Training for Fat Loss

/ Posted 01.04.2013

Q: I know you suggest one second to lift and three seconds to lower. Do you ever use a slower lifting cadence, like lifting in three or four seconds instead of only one? Wouldn’t that produce more tension time for unique muscle-growth stimulation?
