After some people do their workouts, they send me their results. Using that data, I have a proprietary way of calculating what they will be able to lift in a few days.

These guys often add their own comments when they send me their data. Last week one of them told me,

“I have made more progress in the past 10 weeks than I have in the past 10 years of on and off training. My only problem now is that my shirts are getting too tight. haha”

I don’t know what he’s done in the last ten years, but I can show you his last 10 workouts . . .

ThatsWhatImTalkingAbout

That is a perfect chart. Notice how every single exercise showed improvement every time he returned to the gym? That’s no fluke. That takes honest math and real science. It’s why he’s seeing the best progress he’s had 10 years.

What you’re seeing is his power output over a 30-second interval. There’s no way to ‘hocus pocus’ that measurement. The man doing the lifting can either lift more total weight (weight x reps) on the same exercise, done the same way, with the same equipment, in the same 30-seconds – or he can’t. Pass or Fail. It’s physics and it can’t be cheated.

Cars Per Minute

Look around your gym. How many guys do you see with a plan? How many are squeezing every muscle fiber into action? How many are measuring.

Most people I see in the gym are going through the motions. Working their biceps with light dumbbells while staring at the young woman in yoga pants using the stair machine. Wasting time. Reducing their output per minute. Reducing the need for their body to be in an anabolic state. Low intensity.

Here’s some data analysis from a guy on only his SIXTH workout with our new Compound Reps Workout. (Which is a hybrid workout that has to be felt to be believed.)

HowManyCarsCanYouLift

 

Look at how much weight he lifted using just 3 special exercises: 43.4 Tons.

And just to make that more tangible, that’s about 25.5 Toyota Camry’s or Ford Taurus’s. Next time you’re in a small parking lot, count out 25 cars and imagine lifting them in one workout that takes you 16 minutes.

That’s 1.5 cars per minute!

And the fact is, of those 16 minutes, 13 minutes were taken either resting or setting up for the next exercise. Because this particular workout only requires exactly 3 minutes of actual lifting.

That means this person actually lifted a staggering 8.5 cars per minute of exertion!

Do you think the guy watching the yoga pants is doing that? Or the guy talking on his phone between exercises? Or any guy with absolutely no mathematical plan when he walks into the gym?

Anyway, most of you have heard me talk about all this before.

Maybe 3 in 100 will decide to find out what they are really capable of when all the parameters are optimized for them to generate maximum power and remain in a sustainable program month after month.

Most will continue to train blindly.

But if you want to find out what High Intensity really means, and if you want a program that is sustainable, we’ll do all the calculations for you – you just have to show up and lift the weights.

Our Biggest News In 10 Years

Engineered Strength GymWe have some big news. News I think is a game changer in strength training.

Late last year we started working with some trainees to measure the results of their workouts. In the course of doing that it became apparent that most people just don’t optimize their workouts and consequently they get less than ideal results from their training.

For the last six months I’ve been developing a system so that the variables in training are controlled. Briefly, the two critical elements most trainees are overlooking is finding the correct training frequency to ensure recovery and progress and getting the most intensity from each exercise.

Basically, people use a hit and miss approach to both.

That explains why so many people don’t really make meaningful progress month after month. In fact, it’s much more common for people to not make progress than it is to make progress. That’s a sad state of affairs.

So I am hugely excited to announce that these issues are now solved thanks to the new ENGINEERED STRENGTH GYM.

Visit this page and take a look at how muscle-building progress can now be guaranteed thanks to unprecedented analysis, granularity and specificity of the important variables that have, until now, been pretty much invisible to all trainees.
