Towards the end of TMT-PHASE ONE I started to crave the feeling of lifting heavier weights. Now before I go into any further detail I want to address that the words heavier weight is a relative term. Meaning your muscles don’t know X amount of poundage that your lifting so that being said I NEVER WANT YOU TO SACRIFICE YOUR FORM FOR TRYING TO MOVE TOO MUCH WEIGHT. As you will see this program is designed to increase strength and really target those fast twitch muscle fibers for the first 4 weeks. It has been years since I’ve done this low of repetitions and I was curious to see what would happen and the result was getting stronger and my muscles got thicker so be ready to beat the shit out of your body but please be careful. The low rep schemes on certain lifts does not mean that you want to throw form out the window and lose focus of the target muscle. Keep in mind this is still a bodybuilding program and not a powerlifting contest. One of the goals here is to increase your strength during the first 4 weeks by getting a feel for the heavier weight so once weeks 5-8 roll around you should be able to use heavier weights for the higher rep sets that you were not able to use before. The reason for only doing low reps heavier weight for 4 week is to let your joints rest and heal up because you can’t continuously try to push your body with maximum poundage and stay healthy. You don’t want to be sidelined with an injury that will keep you out of the gym. Even though Cycle 1 is geared towards moving the poundage up and gaining strength each week there are still intensity techniques involved to flush as much blood into the muscle so you are guaranteed to get great pumps! For cycle 2, the purpose is to volumize the muscle with higher reps and target the slow twitch muscle fibers. You will not only get great pumps but also your muscle endurance will really be tested during this phase. More supersets and giant sets are involved during this cycle so be prepared to mentally have to push past the pain of the lactic acid build up. The more lactic acid build up equals a larger amount of growth hormone released! So without further ado welcome to TMT-PHASE TWO!

TMT-PHASE 1 - $14.95US
A 12 week intense training program that includes 15 different workouts from 3 different cycles that you will be going through. Each cycle has specific purposes so be ready for mind blowing pumps and extreme pain to take your mind and body to a whole new level! This detailed program will allow you to improve your physique by shaping and detailing, burning fat, gaining size and strength, all while keeping your muscles with maximum fullness. The way I have designed this program is the best of all of the different styles of workouts that I have used on my body that are guaranteed to produce results. Your body will be in shock from week to week while you go through each cycle so your physique has no other option but to respond. Also included is my supplementation guide of all the current supplements that I am taking. This hybrid style periodization training program is like nothing else today!
Here is a break down of the 3 different cycles that you will be experiencing with TMT-Phase One!
Lower volume heavy weight. That being said you NEVER want to sacrifice form in order to lift a certain weight. Even though it’s heavier weight you still need to focus on getting the strong contraction on every rep. The rep range is 6-10. They are mostly all straight sets but there are supersets . Fast Twitch fibers will be targeted this week. They are where you get your power and strength from.
Volumization Weeks. During these weeks you will be using both heavy and lighter weights. On some of your compound movements you will train heavy but also lighter weights and higher reps are involved. LOTS of advanced training techniques are in this cycle to create maximal stimulation and you will feel your muscles fire and fill up with blood like never before. The rep ranges are anywhere from 6-30 so you will be using a combination of fast twitch (power and strength) and slow twitch (endurance) fibers. The different techniques that are introduced in these weeks are super sets, tri sets, , speed of the movement (from super slow to super fast), duration of peak contraction, static holds, and more!
TERROR WEEKS! A.K.A. Giant Sets. Be ready for extreme pain but in turn extreme PUMPS! This is by far the most challenging section of the program and you cannot…I repeat CANNOT be weak minded. When your mind is telling you that you can’t do more or it might be getting to painful you have to fight it off and realize your muscles can handle it and the results are well worth the work. Intensity techniques and power moves will still be used in this cycle. Every workout is designed to target each muscle group at every angle possible by performing giant sets. A giant set is 4 or more exercises done back to back with no rest in between. Only 10-15 seconds in between exercises anything more and your muscles will start to recover. During these workouts it will feel like a cardio workout as well so get ready to drop some body fat while causing hypertrophy by maximal stimulation! If you are feeling all of your secondary muscles take a large workload you need to lighten the weight. Learn how to shut off using secondary muscles and only use the targeted muscle group. If possible for this week I suggest going to train at a time when it’s not busy at the gym so you will be able to perform the giant sets properly. I understand that some of you will not be able to perform giant sets due to schedules and only being able to workout when there are several people in the gym so if that is your case I suggest breaking it down into super sets or tri sets it will still be effective.
