Power Factor Mass Gain Workout on ESG

 

From 2014 to 2015 we ran an informal study among our customers to test several methods of training to see what specifically delivered the best mass gain.

Every participant did exactly the same exercises performed exactly the same way. They were divided into three groups who performed timed sets of 30, 60 and 90-seconds each. One set per exercise and only six exercises per workout.

They were required to perform at least 8 workouts over at least 60 days. Some took longer than 60 days but everyone did at least 8 workouts and never more than 10.

So what happened to these guys whose median age was about 50?

Every group averaged impressive gains, but the group performing 30-second timed sets was a standout from the others.

The results speak for themselves. These trainees gained mass and size at an almost freakish rate: a median of 7.2 lbs of muscle and two inches of size on combined chest and arms – from only 8.8 workouts!

I don’t even like reporting this, because it just sounds like the kind of ridiculous hype I dislike about the strength training business, but the reality is that people who did this workout during our little study gained 1/4 lb of new muscle per minute of training.

That’s a bulls-eye in terms of squeezing maximum growth stimulation from minimum time invested. It’s the reason we take all these measurements. There’s just no way a person would arrive at his peak level of power output time after time and trigger that amount of growth stimulation by stumbling around blindly with all the possible weights, all the possible reps, and all the possible days to show up at the gym – and still get peak power on every exercise the way our system does.

The Engineered Strength Gym Tracks Your Progress

Objective numbers mean you see your progress in black and white. The numbers do not lie – either you are stronger than your last workout, or you are not.

Just do your workout – then tell us your numbers. We’ll take it from there and do all the calculations of of your Alpha & Beta Strength, your Volumetric Intensity, and your personal rates of progress and recovery. Then we’ll send your new goals and the earliest date of you could hit those goals – all based on YOUR personal performance.

You’ll receive an analysis of every Power Factor MASS GAIN Workout you perform.

 

 

Your new goals and your next workout date are all calculated based on your individual rate of progress and recovery.

This Workout is Intelligent

Why? Because numbers don’t lie. You’ll see your performance in black and white after you send us your data. Either you improved, or you did not. There’s no hype or muddled thinking. Science and math replace empty, macho talk.

This workout program is a true bargain. I guarantee you won’t find a nutritional supplement that could stimulate this much muscle growth. The MASS GAIN Study e-booklet is packed with info and it’s included when you sign-up.

You owe it to yourself to use this workout. It costs less than a bottle of supplements and it can be delivering results starting with your next workout. Really!

“We find no sense in talking about something unless we specify how we measure it; a definition by the method of measuring a quantity is the one sure way of avoiding talking nonsense…”— Hermann Bondi

 

It’s a lonely business in the world of strength training and weightlifting when you’re the guy who insists things like lifting intensity, workout volume and recovery time actually be measured in objective ways.

What Happens When You Measure?

Well, take the case of one 50-year-old man named Jonathan. He’s been doing our Compound Reps Workout for a few months. He started out doing workouts with 4 days of rest between them. But now he’s stronger. He lifts a lot more weight, and that means he needs a lot more recovery between workouts.

First, lets look at what he lifts. He does only three special, compound exercises that combine certain movements. These movements are engineered to force your body to hoist as much weight as it can in a short amount of time using your biggest muscle groups.

Last trip to the gym Jonathan lifted 178,100 lbs. With the set up of machines and rest between exercises, the whole workout took him 25 minutes. But for 22 of those minutes he wasn’t actually lifting. He lifted for exactly 3 minutes. And in that time the total weight lifted was as much as a fully fueled, fully loaded with passengers and luggage Boeing 737. (Which has a maximum takeoff weight of only about 150,000 lbs.)

It’s Just Plain Stupid to Guess at All This Information

There’s a reason that regular, middle-aged people get so strong on this workout. We measure stuff!

  • We measure your progress relative to your last workout
  • We measure your progress relative to the goals that were calculated for you
  • We measure the total weight you lift every workout
  • We measure your Momentary Intensity (Power Factor)
  • We measure your Sustained Intensity (Power Index)
  • We quantify the combination of your Intensity and your Volume (Volumetric Intensity Units)
  • We calculate your next goals based on your personal rate of progress
  • We calculate your recovery time based on your demonstrated ability at your level of power output

Lift a 737 in 3 minutes

So while Jonathan is at the gym, some guy is over at the dumbbell rack grimacing in the mirror while the “gets a great workout” hoisting a couple of puny Harley Davidsons. And other guy who is in the gym every day wants people to hear him grunting on the bench press while lifting a couple of small cars in total weight. But 50-year-old Jonathan, quietly and efficiently lifts and entire bloody BOEING 737 in only three minutes! His output and intensity absolutely dwarfs the guys who have been training blindly for decades.

And by the way, only a fool would think a person could lift an airliner every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in perpetuity. That’s the dumbest advice in every gym. The reason this whole workout is effective and actually works is because we calculate recovery times.

 

Tips From Jonathan

I ask Jonathan for any tips for readers and he says these are some of the things he does when he lifts:

1)  I use One Ton Lifting Hooks, hand pads, and a weight belt,
2)  I use the same machines every workout (a power rack that slides on poles and a leg press sled) with safety stops in place – no spotter needed.
3)  I used a metronome to pace my cadence so I go at an optimal tempo. For example, if my target is 74 repetitions for the leg press, I may set the metronome slightly higher at 80 to hit around the target number.
4)  I try to workout on a non-work day so that I am not burned out before lifting.
5)  I use 5 grams of creatine per day.
6)  I have used sidewalk chalk to mark the distance that I should be moving the weight as sometimes I have a tendency to move the weight too much in the beginning.

I don’t know what else I can say on this subject. I regular, middle-aged guy can lift an entire airliner in 3 minutes and most people reading this can not. Don’t you think the program he’s using is worth a try?

I call it the Compound Reps Workout and I guarantee its results.
