Brawn Inspired Mass

Post by dannycap on Thu Mar 04, 2010 3:09 pm

Hello Everybody

I am returning to the forum with a new journal. I have recently been reading Stuart McRobet's book "Brawn" and it has inspired me to change my training from 4 sessions a week down too 2. Whilst I live for the gym I understand the bodies need for recuperation and this is what "Brawn" is about, abbreviated training. Brawn also encourages intensity cycling realising that the body cannot cope with full effort every visit to the gym. Although this is no time for rest more like the foundation of what is too come. Training will be focused on compound movements and I will be looking too increase strength on the Deadlift Very Happy Bench Press, Squat and Military press. There is no room in this routine for isolation movements.

Ok so onto the journal I have so far completed 2 weeks of the start of this training cycle. The first 4 weeks will be the foundation stage with 8 weeks full out. The foundation stage should be longer but I am doing a short cycle so decided to start increasing poundage's early. The aim of the latter stage is too add a lil weight every visit be it just quarter of a pound this shows more strength and progress over the last session. Beating the log book as it were.

To make progess you need to record what weight / sets / reps you are lifting and aim to increase them over time. Of course it does depend on what your goals are :-)
