One of the most common requests we’ve heard over the last 20 years of strength training is;
“How can I gain a lot of muscle as quickly as possible?”
I’ve helped people privately and they’ve had some impressive success. But with what we have learned in the recent past from the CNS and P.E.S. workouts and from the experiments contained in Workout Variations Revealed, I think it’s possible to engineer a new workout that would provide unprecedented mass gains in a relatively brief period.
I would like to conduct an informal study on this and to do it right I need to interact with each participant. Specifically;
a) We would need to speak on the phone briefly at the beginning to make sure you are clear on what exercises to perform and how to perform them. (Previous Static Contraction or Power Factor trainees will already be familiar with the mechanics of every exercise in the study but we should still discuss nuances.)
b) The results of each of your workouts needs to be sent to me via e-mail so I can analyze your progress and make adjustments over the period of the study. (An online form automates this.)
c) There will be only six different exercises and every workout will be the same. Approximately 10 workouts over an 8 to 10 week period.
d) You need access to a basic body fat scale so we know the difference between muscle gain and fat gain or loss.
e) Diet is not being tested for this study so eating normally is fine.
f) As always, I have to make my medical/legal disclaimer that I am not a physician and have no way of knowing your suitability for strenuous exercise. The decision to lift heavy weights is between you and your accredited physician and I cannot assume the liability for your decision and participation.
The cost to participate in this study is $90.
For that, you will receive;
– My personal coaching and encouragement to wring everything you can out of these workouts. Each of your workouts will be analyzed and new goals will be sent to you.
– You will be first to receive the full report of what occurred and the first to receive any form of workout that might be derived from the data.
– At your option, you will also receive a ‘Special Thanks’ by name if there is a book or e-book that results from this data.
– But most importantly, you will have the satisfaction of DOING SOMETHING to move the world of strength training toward a model of testing and measurement in order to make intelligent decisions about what works and how well it works.
Oh, you’ll also gain some serious muscle if this works the way I think it will.
Each participant has a week or two of leeway as to his exact start date.
“I’m in, Pete!”
P.S. I assume you like working out and strength training in particular. I’m guessing nobody else is going to invite you to help move the tech forward a little. I really hope you are able to participate in this. Your assistance is truly needed. And, hey, it will be a fun story to tell people.
“I’m interested but I have a question first.”
