You think you know upper body training? Watch this…

You know those upper body workouts that you never forget? The ones where it hurts to put on a shirt… Well, I may have one just for you!

You see my buddy Tyler just launched a brand new upper body program that includes 45 Done-For-You upper body workouts. Yes, you read that right, a full 45 workouts you can use to work your arms, back and chest into the ground!

Plus, since Tyler wants nothing more then to share his training philosophy with you, he sent me a sample of not 1 or 2, but 3 of these done for you workouts that you can try out today to give you that wobbly feeling in your upper body.

So without further Adieu…

Workout #1 - The Horizontal Flip Flop

Beginner Level Workout

Instructions: To perform the Horizontal Flip Flop workout time how long it takes you to perform the following workout for the following reps, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Reps of:

- Horizontal Row (Body At 45 Degrees)

- Limited ROM Pushups (put a block below your chest and do a smaller range of motion)

How To Progress: In order to make progress with this workout, try to reduce the time it takes to complete.

Ok, so that workout looks fun but it could be a little too easy for you… Try this one on for size and see how it feels.

Workout #2 - Topsy Turvey Twisted

Intermediate Level Workout

Instructions: To perform The Topsy Turvey Twisted workout set a timer for 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest. Perform as many reps as possible of the following exercises:

- Iranian Twisting Pushups

- Pullups

- Vertical Pike Pushups

Repeat for 4 rounds

How To Progress: In order to make progress with this workout, track the total number of reps you complete over the entire workout. Each time you practice, attempt to beat this number. A great goal to shoot for would be 100 reps or more total.

And if that’s not hard enough for you, try out this last workout and you will find out how challenging the workouts contained in Tyler’s Warrior Upper Body System get.
Workout #3 - My Arms Are Limp

Advanced Level Workout

Instructions: To perform the My Arms Are Limp workout set an interval timer for the following intervals:

- Round 1 - 60 seconds on 60 seconds off

- Round 2 - 50 seconds on 50 seconds off

- Round 3 - 40 seconds on 40 seconds off

- Round 4 - 30 seconds on 30 seconds off

- Round 5 - 20 seconds on 20 seconds off

Perform each of the following exercises for the intervals above:

- One Arm Assisted Pullup (Switch Arms ½ Way Through)

- One Arm Pushup (Switch Arms ½ Way Through)

How To Progress: In order to make progress with this workout, track the amount of reps you got on each round. From there, try to increase the number of reps you get on each workout.

==> Learn A Step-By-Step Method To Working Up To These Advanced Exercises

If you can complete this last workout with ease then kudo’s to you, in fact workout #3 was a breeze then you probably don’t need Tyler’s upper body workouts at all.

But… If you gave it a shot and found you couldn’t do a single one arm pushup, then maybe you could use a system that teaches you how to safely go from simple bodyweight and weighted exercises to extremely advanced and complex bodyweight and barbell exercises in a step-by-step manner.

Luckily for you I have such a system and for the next 2 days you can get it for 74% off which as far as I’m concerned is a no brainer!

But... You also get 6 of the most comprehensive upper body training manuals out there. This is literally a complete system and if you like fun, challenging and result producing workouts then it’s a no brainer, Right?

10 Workouts You MUST Do

By Craig Ballantyne, CTT
Creator, Home Workout Revolution Videos

My friend, and world traveler, Simon Black, just sent me this feedback on the new Home Workout Revolution (HWR) program:

"Well done. This is the best product of yours that I've seen. Great video, well-shot, great exercises, great energy.

Ironically, I just arrived to Ecuador after a 5+ hour flight, and didn't have time for the gym this morning. So I just popped into your HWR site and did:

1) Punisher Iso X
2) First half of 5 Rounds of 5
3) First half of Bodyweight Super Sets

No joke... I was smoked. Great stuff.

My favorite quotes from you in the workout videos:

"don't be ridin' high"
"zen-like"
"get low... get low... get loooooooowwww..."
"I know it looks silly, but you're probably at home, so it doesn't matter anyhow..."
"Pump the music up to maybe... 11 out of 10."

*****

Classic feedback. Readers are loving this new program, and yes, it is unlike anything else we've ever created.

Here's another HWR member's feedback:

"Being a busy working mom I don't have a lot of time to work out or go to the gym. I tried P90X, Taebo and many other workouts but can never stick with it because of the length of the program.  Additionally, in most cases I had to exercise almost everyday and I thought where is my life.

"I was never as excited as I am now.  The reason being the follow along videos. When I started the workouts my muscles were sore but I loved it. I am into my 2nd week of performing the exercises and I already have some definition in my thighs and abs. I lost 4 lbs last week too. I look forward to doing these exercises because of the variation in length; they are not long and I feel as if I worked out for an hour and the fact that you are there sweating it out with me. They truly rock. I can't wait to to show off my new body at the end of the 12 weeks. Thanks Craig, you are a life saver."
Annmarie from Trinidad.

Build Serious Calves With This Calf Exercise

Build Serious Calves With This Home-Gym (and Regular Gym!) Calf Exercise...Lengthwise Barbell Donkey Calf Raises

If you've got scrawny calves that don't grow no matter what you do, chances are good you're not doing the Donkey Calf Raise exercise. It's simply one of THE best exercises for developing the calves. The reason is the strong stretch you can put on the calves at the bottom of every single rep because of how your body and legs are positioned during the exercise.

Are Your Functional Workouts Functional?

You’ve probably heard of functional training right?

Functional training is in these days and it’s definitely here to stay but I see way to many people take it way too far down the “functional” path. Here’s what I mean…

Do you ever go the gym and see people standing on fluffy discs filled with air doing ridiculous exercises with pink bands? Is this real functional training?

I can’t remember the last time I was caught in a situation where I had to stand on an air filled disc and do side raises with a pink stretchy band. This is where most people go wrong, deciding to perform worthless “functional” exercises thinking that their doing themselves a favor.

So what is real functional training? And why should you do it?

If you take on serious functional training workouts, you will build an awesome looking body that looks great and performs even better! It’s the true key to lasting, powerful results and don’t you let anyone tell you otherwise!

My buddy Tyler, the inventor of the R.E.A.L. Functional Training Movement has a great way to identify whether or not your training is really functional and a simple method he uses to help people start their R.E.A.L. Functional Training Journey. I’ll let him tell you about it.

********************************
What Is R.E.A.L. Functional Training?

By Tyler Bramlett

Real functional training is an acronym I made up to divide the lame and worthless exercises that many pseudo experts are calling “functional” from the tried and true functional training movements that we know get you great results!

Here’s what R.E.A.L. means…

Realistic Exercises

Executed With Perfect Form

At A High Intensity

Leaving You With A Body That Looks Good And Performs Even Better!

This is what I hold my workout standard to and this is what I have found gets people the best results!

You know you need to use real movements, that much is obvious. Shy away from single joint isolated exercises and look towards using multi-joint compound movements that resemble movements you see in real life. Pick stuff up, put it overhead and do so in a way that your body likes, which brings me to form…

You MUST use good form! This is even more important when practicing R.E.A.L. Functional Training when you use large compound movements there is a lot going on and you need to honor the principals of good form.

Without going into great detail good form means your joints are in proper alignment, the right muscles are working to accomplish a movement and your spine remains neutral throughout each movement.

Intensity is key to getting your body top react to the stimulus you just put on it. You can do functional training exercises but if you do them at a low intensity you wont get results because you wont be sending the signal to your body to adapt.

The key to the proper use of intensity is to work up to it over time honoring the previous 2 principals outlined above.

This all being said… If you perform real movements, with good form at a high intensity you will get awesome results!!

Combine them with my PM-3 Method and you have a program that will leave you with a body that looks great and performs even better!!

==> Click here to read about Tyler’s PM-3 Method and upper body program

********************************

Whooweee, that Tyler character really brings on the truth bombs whenever he sends me these little email snippets.

What I took from that was in order to get the best results you can’t just do silly exercises that your friends or weekend certified trainers think you should be doing.

Instead you should do real movements, with good form at a high intensity and the byproduct of working out like this is a hot bod that can kick some serious butt as well!!

Tyler’s got a super cool brand new program that utilizes his R.E.A.L. Functional Training philosophy and his unique PM-3 Method specifically for building an awesome upper body. Check it out if you care about looking good and feeling even better.

==> Click here to check out the Warrior Upper Body System

To Your Success,

Arthur M.
P.S. Tyler told me that you can try out his PM-3 Method of working out for the next 60 days and if your not 100% satisfied with the stellar results you will get then Tyler’s letting you return it for a 100% refund. There’s no real reason not to try out the PM-3 Method of working out. But… If you’re not into learning new things, if you are satisfied with where you are in your workouts then ignore this special deal. The choice is yours.

Build the strongest upper body imaginable

It’s not very often that someone sends me a new program that truly get’s me excited. I mean, people contact me all the time with their so-called “great solution” to getting crazy strong and fit. But the truth of the matter is the vast majority of these programs suck… like really suck!

Then there’s the programs that I see that look pretty good, would probably work for most people, but… There’s nothing new about them, there’s no magic to them that really peaks my interest.

However, every once in a while a real gem is presented to me that really get’s me fired up!

Well, one such “gem” recently came along, and today I’m super excited to tell you all about it.

You see, my friend and functional training expert Tyler Bramlett has been quietly making his mark in the fitness industry for the last 8 years. And throughout that time he’s come up with some unique concepts that few fitness experts I have ever met truly understand.

So… Why should you care?

Because today Tyler is launching his brand new Warrior Upper Body System, which he touts as the greatest thing in upper body training since the barbell!!

Now that may be a bold claim, but Tyler has seriously addressed so many upper body training issues in his new program that I couldn’t help but excitedly share them with you.

For instance:

Functional training is all the rage these days, with things like crossfit on the rise, everyone and heir mom is out there switching from boring bodybuilding routines to athletic training methods that we now know get better results!

But… And there’s always a but… Many of these “functional” training systems simply don’t have the proper program design to make sure you stay injury free. In fact I keep hearing from my high level friends in the industry all about the injuries they are seeing because of this functional training craze.

In Tyler’s new Warrior Upper Body System he highlight’s a step-by-step method to safely approaching functional upper body training so you can get awesome results all while staying injury free.

Don't believe me? See for yourself here:

==> Check Out The Warrior Upper Body System Here

Another issue I see so many people having in their upper body training is being attached/married if you will to only one training modality. You have bodyweight only people, kettlebell followers and even further, powerlifters and Olympic lifters that are all married to just one training system.

What Tyler did with The Warrior Upper Body Training System was take his vast experience with each of these training implements (Tyler has been trained formally in gymnastics, Olympic lifting and kettlebell training just to name a few) and create a system that you can use to get great results using your favorite exercise tools.

In The Warrior Upper Body System you will find not only a comprehensive Bodyweight Upper Body Training Program but also a comprehensive Weighted Upper Body Training Program that each cover the EXACT exercises you should be doing in the EXACT order so you can build piston like legs that never quit!

Seriously, if you’re into getting better results in your workouts you might wanna check this out…

==> I Highly Recommend You Check Out The Warrior Upper Body System

Finally if that’s not enough the final component of The Warrior Upper Body System is a special BONUS 45 Done-For-You Warrior Upper Body Workouts!!

Tyler seriously sat down and wrote not 10 or 20 or even 30 but 45 complete upper body workouts that you can use right away in your upper body training. He went as far as to include bodyweight only upper body workouts, weighted only upper body workouts and hybrid (a combo of weights and bodyweight training) upper body workouts that are easy to follow and super fun (wait till you see some of the names of these workouts).

So… Now maybe you can see why this got me so excited. An upper body training system that covers foundational form, dynamic mobility, flexibility, strength and stability exercises. A complete progressive guide to both bodyweight and weighted upper body training. Plus 45 Done-For-You Warrior Upper Body Workouts!!

And all of this for WAY LESS then it’s worth, It’s a serious no brainer!!

To Your Success,

Arthur M.
P.S. Listen, I already know how much this program is gonna change the way you look at training your upper body. But, if you are still concerned about this system not being worth your while I have 2 things left to tell you. One, it’s less then 20 bucks. That’s nothing compared to the value you will get out of just one of the manuals included in this program. Two, Tyler’s offering a 60 day guarantee on the program so you really have NOTHING TO LOSE.

The # 1 Secret Behind THIS Ladder Finisher (inside)

Why Ladder Finishers Work So Well
Mike Whitfield, CTT

"Following the last workout (aka the greatest workout I think you've ever given me), I'm so incredibly sore all over. I don't know why the last one was so hard but I loved it and think that is a style of one I hope you use more often" 
- King, my very longtime client

And the funny thing is I've been training King now for about 6 years. That means he's been through hundreds of workouts with me.

What happened was that it started as an experiment, and then it became an obsession.

It's the powerful (yet ADDICTING) method of combining the power of a Ladder and a Finisher. A ladder, as you know, is when you start with a certain number of reps for a superset or circuit and work your way up or down. For example, you start with 8 reps of each exercise, then 7 reps of each, etc., etc.

The rest periods?... that's up to you. Your goal - to BEAT the time it takes to complete your finisher every time you do it (with good form of course).

And here are 31 BRAND NEW Ladder Finishers for you

http://scrnch.me/d9ncw

What happens when you combine the power of a ladder and a finisher?

Well, you create a lot of density. Density means you're putting in a lot of work in a very short period of time.

This means improved conditioning, FASTER fat loss and the best part - it's MUCH better than cardio in just a fraction of the time.

But forget all that for a second - here's the best part - research is showing you'll KEEP OFF the unwanted fat.

Check out this recent study:

(Reference: Carels, R.A., et al. A Randomized Trial Comparing Two Approaches to Weight Loss: Differences in Weight Loss Maintenance. J Health Psychol. 2013 Jan 24.)

Researchers from BGSU delivered two different 12-week weight loss programs to 59 overweight adults. One program, "New Perspectives", focused on helping them fix their unhealthy relationships with food, while the other program, "Transforming Your Life", emphasized environmental modification, good habit formation and breaking old habits.

Both groups lost weight and changed their lives.

HOWEVER, the subjects in the habit-changing "Transforming Your Life" group were more effective at maintaining their weight loss during the next 6 months after the study (when they were on their own without researchers).

Now when you know you don't have to run like a hamster every day and can have fun with your workouts, you'll stay more consistent, wouldn't you agree?

That's why these Ladder Finishers work so well and why my readers and clients love them. They are MUCH shorter than long, boring cardio and they are a lot more fun.

You can get 31 BRAND NEW Ladder Finishers here

http://scrnch.me/d9ncw

The # 1 secret behind Ladder Finishers on why they work so well and help you burn more fat is because of the short rest periods (which are dictated by YOU), and the ridiculous VOLUME you exert in such a short period.

They are tough, but they are FUN!

So kick cardio to the curb, and instead, do addicting Ladder Finishers like this one:

The Metabolic Ladder Monster

In the first circuit, you'll do 8 reps of each exercise. In the next circuit, you'll do 7 reps. Continue until you complete 1 rep of each exercise

Prisoner Lunge Jump (8/side...1/side)

Triple Stop Pushup (8...1)

Inverted Row or Strap Row (8...1)

Spiderman Climb (8/side...1/side)

Boom goes the Ladder Finisher Dynamite,

Fitness Voodoo (video to prove it)

At the Spinal Health & Core Training seminar, the last presenter was Dean Somerset.

He had amazing information when it came to assessing, core training and spinal health from the perspective of a trainer.

Dean gave 3 hours of incredible information and then wrapped things up with a case study with one of the people that attended.

Fitness Voodoo!

He assessed her, got her to do a few quick exercises and it was fixed.

It was very cool and shows the power of understanding the why, when, where and how when it comes to core training and spinal health, compared to just doing core exercises.

Why waste your time on long cardio sessions to get six pack abs

Have you been spending an hour or more on the treadmill because you think it is the only solution to your cardio-vascular health, weight loss and revealing a toned, flat stomach?

Well the truth is there are much more effective and short duration cardio routines that you could be following and saving your valuable time. Long sessions on the treadmill, cross-trainers and rowing machines eat into time you probably don't have to waste. If you are stuck between work, juggling the children, shopping and cooking and cleaning then you probably would love to save time and get better results at losing fat and having an attractive midsection. If you simply enjoy spending an hour or two on the treadmill then fine, but there are certainly disadvantages to long cardio sessions that you might not be aware of.

During a steady-state cardiovascular workout (jogging on a treadmill) you are raising your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), which remains elevated while you train. Sure that is great if you are trying to lose weight, but after you run for an hour you will only burn calories for a couple of hours. The fat will break down while you aerobically train and weight loss will occur, but only for that short period. It easily becomes addictive as you become fit to increase your goals -to run, row or swim for longer periods, especially if you want lose even more body fat.

However wouldn't you like to know how to burn fat many hours after you have left the gym? Imagine turning your body into an overnight fat-burning furnace – many hours after you have left the gym? Wouldn't you like to save precious time and get even better results?

Have you noticed when you do long periods of cardio you lose all that stubborn belly fat, but also lose valuable lean muscle?

Increasing your aerobic activities decreases your lean muscle. The longer you train the more lean muscle you will lose as the body breaks down the fat and muscle. It may seem an obvious assumption if you have already made the connection between middle and long distance runners and their very slender body types. Now think of a sprinter's physique; they have amazing lean muscle, ripped abs and look athletic. Female sprinters also have very attractive physiques and an aesthetically-pleasing shape.

Now, with that picture in mind, think of all the long and middle distance runners, again - and you have an idea of what I am talking about. Elite long-distance runners put in as much work as any other athlete, but they certainly have to sacrifice shape and size in their quest for glory. So has the penny dropped yet? Long periods of steady state cardio will not give you a very lean, athletic look. As you get older you will lose muscle mass and it is hardly the best option to decrease your muscle even more through steady-state cardio.

Of course there are other forms of cardio routines and exercise routines that will decrease fat, increase muscle and leave you with a great-looking 6-pack and increased cardio-vascular endurance. You can achieve better results in less time with the right cardio program.

If you want to exceed any previous expectations you have had of fat-burning programs and learn how to develop an awesome set of abdominal muscles in the process, 'check out LoveSexyAbs now!'

Exercises to Lower Your Blood Sugar and Control Diabetes

How to Build the Lean, Athletic Physique That Women Love

By: Justin Devonshire, Men’s Fitness & Conditioning Specialist

I was thinking the other day about when I first started using my 30-minute Alpha Body Blueprint workouts at a gym I used to go to.

I would be surrounded by a number of bodybuilders, young skinny guys looking to gain muscle, and larger guys looking to burn fat and find a 6-pack.

My workouts were so much different to theirs. I also noticed that all their workouts took a long time, and they all looked pretty much the same as when they stared coming to the gym months ago. My body was developing quickly however, and I was gaining muscle and developing definition in my abs.

Another thing I noticed was the odd looks I seemed to get. As though these guys were looking at me, trying to decipher what I was doing and why it worked so well, but were too afraid to simply ask me.

Well, here’s why my workouts were so different and so effective:

Whilst the bodybuilders and skinny guys were sitting around in between each set, laughing, joking and playing on their mobile phones, I was taking short rest periods between my sets and following up each exercise with another exercise.

I kept the flow and the pace of my workout fast. If I had to wait longer to rest in between heavy sets I would stretch, perform a core exercise, or perform a light joint mobility exercise.

Why did I do things this way…?

It’s simple – I just didn’t have the time to spend 90 minutes a day in the gym. In fact I could barely afford 45 minutes.

So in half the time those guys were training just one muscle group, I was able to train my entire body to get stronger and more powerful with a smart selection of exercises;

Plus, rather than spend over an hour on a boring, slow treadmill or elliptical trainer, I used the short rest periods to increase my heart rate and added some metabolic fat loss protocols into my strength workouts.

This 30-minute workout structure enabled me to train like an athlete – and develop raw power, brute strength and boost my fat burning metabolism long after the session had finished. (That means I could burn more calories in 10 minutes than the treadmill guys would burn in an hour).

In fact, the methods behind my 30-minute workout have been proven by studies to boost your metabolism and put your body into fat-burning mode for up to 38 hours after your workout has finished.

That’s why I have NEVER had to use a treadmill, bike, elliptical or run anywhere in the last 10 years, and I can easily maintain a low body-fat percentage and a defined midsection (no strict dieting, and no stomach crunches either…)

I know many of you are just as busy as me and so we can’t afford to workout 90 minutes a day. Whether its school, college, work or just life, you don’t need to be in the gym that long. That’s why I designed the 8-Week Alpha Body Blueprint 30-minute workout program.

With a workout structure that uses a strategic blend of muscle-building, fat-burning, and athleticism-developing exercises, not to mention my Loaded Endurance Fat Loss protocol, the 8-Week Alpha Body Blueprint is the perfect program to get you maximum results in minimum time.

How to get a 6-pack without the back pain!

Do you find your back is hurting or sore after training your abdominal muscles? Even worse, have you found yourself suffering severe, sharp back pain when training your abs? Getting a washboard six-pack can be quite a painful experience if you are not sure which exercises you should be doing to develop your abs.

The first rule of developing a toned, flat stomach is to cross sit-ups off your list of things to do in the gym. Sit-ups involve bending at the waist; spinal flexion and medical research has long uncovered that this is the exact movement that can cause a herniated disc in your lower back. More recently, researchers, at Woodend Hospital in Great Britain, used MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) on 22 healthy volunteers to identify which positions are best, and which are worst, for our backs.

Using a Positional MRI Machine, which allowed the patients to move through a range of different positions -slouching (the person hunches forward, with feet touching the floor), upright (90 degrees, with feet touching the floor), reclined backwards (135 degrees, with feet touching the floor).

Measurements of spinal angles, spinal disk height, and movements were taken (when undue strain is placed on a disk, it moves, often out of place). The upright position, at 90 degrees came out top of the list as to which movement caused disks to move the most. Can you guess which ab exercise most resembles that movement? Why the traditional sit-up of course.

Getting your six-pack looking like a set of house bricks doesn't need to end in tears if you are using a safe, effective abdominal-specific program? If you are using sit-ups or have a poor technique with your crunches then your hip flexor is forced to use excessive psoas activation, which causes the psoas to pull on the lower spine, arching the back and creating compressive forces on the discs of the lumbar spine.

When the back arches it can cause the vertebrae around the psoas attachment to grind together, which can potentially lead to disc degeneration. The damage caused is similar to the results uncovered by the Great Britain researchers. It is the movement caused by the pulling on the spine which brings the disk out of place.

Do not be discouraged if you are not sure about your technique or can't find the right abdominal routines that are effective for developing ripped, hard abs. Every dilemma has its solution and you can find the key to an effective abs development program.

Something I Learned This Week

It never fails.

Every time I review a new product that comes across my desk, I learn something new. That is why I love my line of work, because I get to constantly learn from some of the best minds across all of the fitness world.

This week, I've been reviewing Fix My Wrist Pain, by Rick Kaselj and Jedd Johnson. Rick has dedicated decades of his life to helping people get out of pain and back to living and training like they want to. Jedd has dedicated his life to the pursuit of strength and is a world class grip strength competitor.

With their backgrounds, you might say they are the perfect Tag Team to put together a product like this.

One of the things I learned while reading their ebook is that sometimes wrist pain can actually be caused by problems that stem from elsewhere in the body, especially the shoulder.

To be more specific, if you have poor mobility in your shoulder, then it means your shoulder doesn't work the way it is supposed to. It doesn't move the way it's supposed to.

So you might be wondering, "What does that have to do with my wrist?" Well, because the body, and especially the arms, are like a chain, if one specific link or portion of that chain functions poorly, it can set off a whole series of issues down the chain.

And often the wrist takes the beating because the shoulder joint is not doing its job.

Makes sense, right?

An example of this has to do with your ability to externally rotate the upper arm bone. If that is limited, it also means you won't be able to rotate your forearm right, and that means your wrist can get seriously messed up doing lifts like bicep curls.

If you have poor posture or your pecs are too tight, then you probably have poor external rotation ability in the shoulder, and it probably hurts like hell when you do certain versions of the curl, either in your elbow or wrists.

Sound familiar?

Well, now you can start addressing these issues with Fix My Wrist Pain.

Rick Kaselj and Jedd Johnson have put together a great resource for you to help fix your wrists (and anything else that might be causing you issues) so that you can get back to pain free workouts and start kicking it up in the gym again.

So click the link below and grab this at the bargain price during the introductory sale.

Arthur M.
P.S. Even if you don't have wrist pain right now, I strongly suggest you get this. Jedd put together an entire book on preventing wrist pain. In my experience, it's A LOT easier to keep injuries away than it is to rehab from them, so don't think Fix My Wrist Pain is just for people who are battling wrist injuries right now.

Alpha Body QnA

Do you have questions about the Alpha Body Blueprint? How it works, or How is it unique?

Recently, it’s creator Justin Devonshire was grilled about his Alpha Body Blueprint system.

Here are the answers to your questions…

Q: First, can you tell us what exactly the Alpha Body Blueprint is about?

Answer: I put the Alpha Body Blueprint training program together after years of in-the-trenches experience with athletes, wrestlers and regular guys. I was kind of forced into coming up with this fast, effective plan after having surgery that left my abdominals torn and dropping to a very unhealthy 112 pounds.

From personal experience, I’ve found the best way to simultaneously build lean muscle and lose fat is to train based on the principles that power athletes such as MMA fighters and footballer use.

I also tweaked this system to combat the problems and challenges most young guys face when it comes to working out – lack of time, and confusion over what types of exercise to do.

I found that most guys I helped were following long, dull, and ineffective bodybuilder-style workouts and they were just getting weaker and flabbier doing them.

These guys also thought that they had to spend HOURS every week on the treadmill to lose weight, but they NEVER saw results.

Another problem was that with school, college, sports training and life in general, these young guys found it hard to get time to get their workouts done.

So, to combat all these things in one, The Alpha Body Blueprint:

a) Uses proven and effective methods of boosting metabolism to burn fat 9 times faster AND build lean, athletic muscle – used by top athletes and Hollywood film stars to get into shape

b) Workouts only last an average of 30 minutes (with a full warm up and cool down included). My program is based on getting in, going hard and then having time to recover so you protect from CNS burnout (which kills most guys’ muscle gains).

c) I incorporate my Loaded Endurance training protocol, which has been tried and tested by MMA fighters to get into outstanding shape and shed stomach fat.

If you do have the time to spend hours in the gym everyday, following boring, long workouts that don’t work then be my guest. But if you are like most guys I’ve met and trained then you don’t often have longer than 30 minutes to work out, and you could do with a proven, effective program designed SPECIFICALLY to sculpt a lean, ripped ATHLETIC physique that women lust over – then the Alpha Body Blueprint is definitely, genuinely the solution you need.

Q: Okay so it’s a training program that will build muscle and melt body fat fast, but what makes it so effective?

Answer: Most guys have been led to believe that they must follow old-school bodybuilder workouts that are full of isolation exercises and body-part splits.

I’ve seen some young guys spend an entire 2-hour session BLASTING their chest and triceps with as many exercises and reps as they can. This has a few problems for the average gym-goer:

Firstly, to perform that many repetitions it means the weights they use are extremely light (can be lifted 10 – 20 times per set usually). However, to make your muscle firm, dense and ripped you actually have to use HEAVY weights (8 reps per set and under). Heavier weights force your body to adapt and grow, and also boost your fat burning metabolism faster than anything.

By lifting lighter weights for more reps (which does have its place somewhere in training, just not ALL the time!) you are simply inflaming the muscle and making it ‘puffy’ rather than dense. So heavy weights will tend to make your muscle bigger and dense, whereas lighter weights will make your muscle slightly bigger but more puffy and soft.

(Doesn’t it seem strange that the high rep range of 10 – 20 reps that most guys use is THE SAME as what most WOMEN use to lose weight and tone?)

Another problem with the ‘back one day’ and ‘arms the next’ day type approach is that each muscle group only gets stimulated once per week, or twice maximum.

However, again contrast this to ripped, lean and muscular athletes with V-shaped torsos, or Hollywood Superhero film stars – these guys train with FREQUENCY.

These guys with the muscular but ripped and dense bodies work EVERY muscle group multiple times per week.

Think about it – do you think your chest will grow more by bench pressing once per week – or would it grow more if you could bench press 4- 5 times per week?

The Alpha Body Blueprint shows you exactly how to train multiple muscle groups, multiple times per week WITHOUT getting overtrained. In fact, you’ll perform more work and have MORE energy.

As for fat loss, the biggest mistake guys make is plodding for hours on a treadmill at a low intensity. Again, all you need to do is model success – The top MMA fighters, Hollywood film stars, Olympic gymnasts all have incredible, shredded physiques.

Yet NONE of them will perform long, slow, dull running for their cardio workouts. They are using Metabolic Resistance Training, or what I call Loaded Endurance to perform their cardio work with weighted exercises.

The problem of spinning your wheels on a bike or treadmill is that is causes no disturbance to your body. It’s easy – let’s be honest (that’s why most people still do it).

But scientific research and real-world results from the leaders in the fat loss industry have proven – without a doubt – that slow, low-intensity cardio is virtually USELESS for fat loss.

In fact, metabolic Loaded Endurance has been proven to burn 9 times more fat than steady running – in only a fraction of the time.

However, the worst part about all this for most people is that their traditional workouts are just so BORING. “Back and legs” workouts and then running on a treadmill takes hours and is so dull. That’s why most guys are always jumping from program to program and see no change in their appearance.

The Alpha Body Blueprint workouts, are exciting, challenging and invigorating, plus a lot more enjoyable than staring at a TV when plodding along on a cardio machine. Instead each session you will be laser-focused on your goal, you’ll feel fresh and you’ll know you’ve progressed and achieved something each and every time you step out of the gym.

You’ll find it very tough to find something more effective  and focused than the Alpha Body Blueprint if you only have 30 minutes to work out and are not seeing the results you want.
