Successful Scientific Training Rules

  1. The best muscle building exercises are the ones that use your muscles the way they are designed to work.
  2. Exercises that use lots of muscles in coordinated action are better than those that force muscles to work in isolation.
  3. To build muscle size, you must build strength.
  4. To build muscle size and strength, you must train hard but less frequently, with plenty of recovery time between workouts. You always want an improvement in something.
  5. The goal of each workout is to set a record. Never do the exact same workout two times in a row.
  6. The weight you lift is a tool to reach your goals. It is not a goal by itself.
  7. Use free weights as much as possible. Most machines prevent your body from doing the most important and useful muscle-building movements. Many machines force your joints into unnatural ranges of motion, creating damage that may take years to repair.
  8. A workout is only as good as the adaptations it produces.
  9. Cardio can be used to help recover from resistance training, assist in increasing your metabolic rate to maximize fat loss, and strengthen your heart.
  10. Systematically changing your workout will cause the body to adapt and give you the results that you are striving for.

Six MOST common mistakes people make while working out are the following:

Mistake #1: Doing Isolated Exercises

Doing isolated exercises like bicep curls and tricep kick-backs will NOT get you any significant results. These one-muscle-at-a-time moves simply don’t stimulate enough muscle fibers to build lean muscle or expend enough energy to maximize your calorie burn.

If you want to build lean muscle while burning fat so you can get serious definition, you need to perform exercises that stimulate as many muscles and expend as much energy as possible at the same time. Using these types of exercises will dramatically accelerate your results.

Mistake #2: Working Out With Machines

Often, people rely on weight machines for their entire workout. Truthfully, about the only thing most weight machines are good for is for sitting down while you tie your shoes or catch your breath! The problem is this: Machines alter the way your body naturally moves and restrict your range of motion. This severely limits your ability to fully activate all of your muscles fibers — that means less fat burning and less muscle definition. Worse yet, machines can cause excessive strain on your joints, leading to nagging injuries down the road.

If you want fast results, it’s critical that you incorporate exercises that allow your body to move naturally with full range of motion so you can skyrocket your metabolism and tone your entire physique.  I’ll explain the 7 primary movements that are the foundation of these full-body exercises and I’ll teach proper exercise technique and the best types of weights to use for your workouts.

Mistake #3: Doing Long Bouts of Cardio

Look, you need to do cardio if you want to lose weight and burn fat…BUT there’s a right way and a wrong way to do your cardio workouts. If you’ve been pounding the pavement or the treadmill with nothing to show for it (except sore joints and a pair of stinky worn out sneakers), you already know it takes a lot of effort to get minimal results.

I’m going to reveal the most effective way to pump up your cardio routine that will get you insane results in half the time of your regular cardio workout — without causing unnecessary stress on your joints. Seriously, don’t skip this because once you learn this simple trick, you’ll kick yourself for not doing it all along.

Mistake #4: Doing Crunches & Sit-Ups To Get 6-Pack Abs

If you want washboard abs, doing traditional ab exercises like crunches and sit-ups WILL NOT get you a six pack. In fact, doing any exercises that target your abs won’t get you a six pack either! These so-called “ab” exercises are a complete waste of time. They don’t make your abs get any more defined and they definitely don’t burn any fat.

The key to getting sculpted abs is to burn off that stubborn layer of belly fat that’s hiding them!  I’ll show you how to burn away the “ab flab” while stimulating all 6 of your abdominal muscles at the same time so you can finally carve out your six pack abs.

Mistake #5: Repeating The Same Workouts Over & Over

Repeating the same workouts over and over is a surefire way to STOP getting results. We’re creatures of habit and we tend to stick to things we’re familiar with and good at. But when it comes to your workouts, if you want to keep making progress and keep seeing changes in your body, you’ve got to start switching things up.

You see, your body has an amazingly ability to adapt quickly and when it does, that’s when you hit the dreaded plateau and you stop making progress.  I’m going to tell you exactly how often you need to change up your workout routine so you can keep your body guessing to accelerate the results process.

Mistake #6: Doing Long Workouts

Longer workouts do NOT equal better or faster results. If you’ve been slaving away at the gym and your body isn’t visibly changing, you can’t do more of the same thing and expect a different result.

When it comes to getting lean and fit, your body responds to quality over quantity. I’m going to tell you the #1 way to super-charge your workouts — this simple, yet overlooked method is the single fastest way to building lean muscle tissue while cutting your workout time almost in half.

Stop doing the same old workouts that haven’t gotten you any results and find out the TRUTH about how to get lean and ripped with shorter, more effective workouts…
