In the coming weeks I’ll be discussing the new Power Factor Workout – Maximum Power, Endurance and Size Gains edition in more detail. One of the most common questions I receive is “Should I be doing the Static Contraction routine or the Power Factor routine?” They both build muscle and which one you need or prefer depends on your personal situation and preferences.
Static Contraction is “the world’s fastest workout” and appeals to those who want training efficiency as a priority. The workouts are both very brief and infrequent. This new Power Factor Workout is specifically designed for people who want more volume in their training, particularly as a way to increase the endurance of their strength. It also is better for those who know from experience that they need more exercise volume in order to see gains in muscle size. This workout solves the dilemma of generating high intensity but also sustaining that intensity for a much longer duration than Static Contraction.
The chart below summarizes the major elements of both systems.
Future posts will discuss these elements in more detail.
