HOW TO GAIN MORE MUSCLE AND BURN MORE FAT IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS
THAN MOST PEOPLE DO IN 90 DAYS OR EVEN 6 MONTHS!
---------------------------------------------------------------

Lewis Wolk of A to Z Fitness.Com recently came up with a great idea. He decided to ask 15 of the internet’s top trainers and bodybuilding experts for their best kept secrets of gaining muscle and losing body fat and to compile the answers into a brand new book.

When Lewis asked me to be a part of this project, he confronted me with the big question on which the entire book is based: “What is the best way to gain maximum muscle and lose maximum fat in only 30 days?” When I first heard it, I have to admit, I didn’t like the question. You see, I’ve always believed in a “slow and steady wins the race” kind of philosophy, not an “overnight muscle” or “lose 30 pounds in 30 days” type of mentality (which usually reeks of fads, gimmicks and scams).

However, everybody wants results as quickly as possible and no one wants to waste time on diet and training methods that don’t produce. Although you can only achieve so much in a single month, the truth is, the first 30 days on a properly designed training program, supported by sound nutrition in an optimally “primed” (and not over-trained) body, will always be the period with the greatest results. After that, your results start to level off as your body becomes accustomed to the old routine.

So I decided that this was a question that deserved an answer and I agreed to write one of the chapters in Lewis’s book. I racked my brains for weeks to come up with a program that would produce the most muscle growth in only 30 days. What I developed, I named the “30 day growth spurt program.” Why did I call it a “growth spurt” program? I guess you’ll just have to read it to find out.

Thousands of people have lost body fat using my fat loss diet methods, and now you can get a chance, in this new book, to see my nutrition and training methods for maximum muscle growth - including the secrets to gaining muscle as quickly as humanly possible, without resorting to dangerous steroids. (By the way, my chapter focuses on muscle growth, but some of the other trainers in the book focus on fat loss and there is advice for women as well as men)

Will this program turn you into Mr. Olympia or pack 20 pounds of muscle on you in a month? Of course not. In fact, I confront - head on - the issue of false muscle growth claims and I teach you how to set a realistic, but ambitious goal for gaining muscle. Although I'm not promising miracles, I’m confident that if you follow the nutrition and training protocol to a T, you will experience some of the best progress you’ve ever achieved in such a short period of time.

BEYOND LEAN: How To Get “Ripped” Using High Intensity Cardio

By Russ Yeager,
Natural bodybuilder and fitness coach

Successful bodybuilding is a combination of two distinct processes: 1) building muscle mass, and 2) burning off the fat that covers the muscles. This article is going to focus on the second part – how to burn off body fat - by using cardio more effectively.

You can have slabs of muscle mass and even be highly conditioned to perform various physical activities, but with few exceptions, (such as in the genetically gifted), if you don’t include cardio in your training program, you will never have the beyond lean, “ripped” look that every bodybuilder is striving for.

I believe that cardio training should be included as a part of your program regardless of whether your primary goal is to build muscle, lose body fat, or increase your level of fitness and health The numerous health benefits are reason enough to do your cardio, but if you’re trying to get leaner, then intense cardio is a great way to help you get there faster.

Cardio can be performed in many different ways and at many different levels of intensity. The debates over high versus low intensity, long duration versus short duration, and interval over steady state cardio continue to rage on with both sides providing scientific studies to support their arguments. Any type of cardio performed consistently can be effective, and it’s true that many bodybuilders and fitness competitors have had success getting lean using both high intensity and low intensity cardio.

However, for getting beyond lean (to the point of being “ripped”), and to do it in the fastest and most efficient manner, high intensity cardio simply cannot be beat. Cardio training can be completed in as little as 16-20 minutes with great results, provided the intensity level is high enough. To get the same results from low intensity cardio could take up to three times longer.

When I tell people that some of my cardio sessions are as short as 16 minutes, they can’t believe how lean I get for the amount of cardio I do. Well, if you could see how hard I perform my cardio (you can see a real, live session in my Complete Physique Training DVD), you would understand that it’s no walk in the park. Brief cardio sessions do not mean “easy” cardio sessions. In fact, the workouts can become extremely difficult, but I don’t mind because I know how effective they can be for burning fat. I have also found that these short, intense cardio sessions have a minimal negative impact on your muscle building efforts, as long as your nutrition is in order.

The biggest reason that intense cardio is so effective is because it increases your metabolic rate much more than moderate or low intensity cardio. When your metabolism is cranked up through intense cardiovascular exercise, it will continue to soar for hours after your cardio session is over, so you will continue to burn calories at an accelerated rate. If you think about it, you are getting a huge return on a relatively small investment. It’s a lot like your financial portfolio. If you could invest the same amount of money in something with a 5% rate of return or in something with a 15% return, which would you choose? It’s a no brainer, right? Well, if you could get triple the return from the same time investment in your training, then why wouldn’t you do it?

Even if your primary goal is increased muscle mass, cardio should still be a regular part of your training program. Even though I have a tall, ectomorph body type,I do cardio two or three times a week during my muscle mass-building season. In addition to the health benefits, performing intense cardiovascular exercise can actually help you achieve your muscle-building goals. Intense cardio improves blood flow to the muscles and increases the volume of blood contained in the blood vessels and veins, creating a cell-volumizing effect.

Intense cardio also increases your metabolism, allowing you to eat more muscle-building calories without adding unwanted body fat (being able to eat more while still staying lean is nice!). Finally, intense cardio also provides an anabolic response and protects against muscle breakdown, which can sometimes occur with long, endurance-oriented cardio sessions.

The best analogy to show the benefits of high intensity, short duration cardio is to compare a sprinter’s body with a marathon runner’s body. We all know that the sprinter is very lean with lots of muscle mass, while the marathon runners tend to be softer and carry very little muscle mass. Research has shown that intense cardio can increase the muscle-building hormones insulin, growth hormone (GH) and IGF-1, similar to an intense weight training session [1,2]. This anabolic effect is one possible reason why athletes performing intense cardio maintain more lean muscle mass than do those performing long duration, low intensity cardio.

The key to triggering this type of response is to perform your cardio intensely enough. During the post-cardio time frame is also a good time to take advantage of a fast-absorbing carbohydrate and whey protein source to capitalize on this anabolic response, as well as to fight the release of cortisol, a muscle-wasting hormone that increases during any type of intense exercise or stress to the body.

Intense cardio exercise takes some getting used to, it requires that you are already fit and you have your doctor’s approval to perform vigorous exercise, and it also requires some mental and physical toughness. Intense cardio is extremely demanding, but ever since I have been doing it this way I can’t imagine doing it any other way.

Time is one of the most valuable resources we have, and intense, short duration cardio saves you lots of time! 16 to 20 minutes and I am “outta there,” while others spend up to an hour or more with slow walks on the treadmill or casual rides on the bike (and still might not achieve the results they are after).

The Specifics Of High Intensity Cardio Training:

High Intensity Cardio is often referred to as HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) cardio. While HIIT can take on a number of different forms, the basic principle is that during an interval training workout, you exercise at increasing and decreasing levels (“intervals”) of intensity. For example, you perform 20 minutes of cardio and alternate between one minute high intensity “work” intervals and one minute lower intensity “recovery” intervals. Altogether, you perform 10 high intensity intervals for a total of 20 minutes.

Another way to perform high intensity cardio is to steadily increase intensity over the course of 2-3 minutes until you reach a “peak” intensity level, then reduce the intensity a few notches and work back up so you hit several “peaks” during your cardio session (as in a “climbing hills” program). A third, and often overlooked way to perform high intensity cardio is to simply go as hard as you possibly can for 16, 20, or 30 minutes nonstop. Any of these variations work as long as you are truly pushing yourself.

My method of intense cardio training is not necessarily based on hitting a specific heart rate or percentage of maximum heart rate. Since intensity is relative and heart rate at a given exertion can vary so much from person to person, any number or formula I could give you would only be an estimate anyway. Instead, use the “perceived exertion” method and to simply push yourself to your own personal peak or near peak intensity level on your work intervals and strive to increase your intensity overall and use progression as you get in better and better shape.

A good way to ensure that you continually raise your cardio standards and add a competitive aspect to your workouts is to turn your cardio into a “game” by tracking your calories and distance on the cardio equipment. Although the data given from cardio machines may not always be 100% accurate, it is still a great motivational tool. The goal is to beat your previous performance every cardio session. If you strive to do this, then you are literally forced to get some very productive cardio sessions whether you always reach your goal or not. It takes time to build up your level of intensity so start off slowly and be patient.

I suggest performing cardio 2-4 times per week for general health, for staying lean or if your goal is gaining muscle mass. If you are trying to get “ripped” for a bodybuilding competition, a beach trip, photo shoot or whatever, then you can perform cardio more often - up to 7 days a week, and even twice a day, depending on how much fat you have to lose and how long you have to lose it.

I normally perform my intense cardio sessions using the stair-stepper, step mill, or a recumbent bike. I use these three pieces of equipment because those are my personal preferences, but you shouldn’t feel limited to the bike or stair-stepper, or even to staying inside. Running stadiums is an especially outstanding way to get your heart rate and metabolism skyrocketing.

You can apply interval training principles to almost any activity, including running, biking, swimming, or jumping rope. Other great cardio options include playing full court basketball, mountain biking, and high intensity aerobic or spinning classes. Although these forms of exercise will probably take more time than 20 minutes, and may not be quite as intense, as long as you consciously push yourself hard, they are still very effective at burning fat. That’s the whole idea – push yourself to do all your cardio more intensely!

The Beyond Lean Weekly High Intensity Cardio Schedule

Here’s an example of a weekly high intensity cardio schedule that I use to get “beyond lean!”

Day Of Week Cardio Equipment Duration Format
Monday Stair stepper (In the PM after weight training in the AM) 20 minutes "Hill" program
Tuesday Recumbent bike (in the PM after weight training in the AM) 16 minutes Manual program (alternate between 1 minute all out sprint and 1 minute moderate intensity intervals
Wednesday Step Mill (Gauntlet) - in the AM (no weight training) 30 minutes "Rolling Hills program at moderate to high intensity during entire session
Thursday Recumbent bike (in the PM after weight training in the AM) 16 minutes "Manual" program (alternate between 1 minute all out-sprints and 1 minute moderate intensity intervals)
Friday Stairstepper (in the PM after weight training in the AM) 20 minutes "Hill" program
Saturday Step Mill (gauntlet) - in the AM (no weight training) 30 minutes "Rolling Hills" program at moderate to high intensity during entire session
Sunday rest day rest day rest day

I progressively work up to the schedule you see above from my off-season cardio schedule of 2-3 times per week by adding one cardio session per week until I reach 6 days a week. If I need it, I will then add additional intense cardio sessions to the schedule above. I will even add a 7th session on Sunday and then begin performing double cardio sessions (one at lunch and one in the evening) on the other days, for up to 14 sessions per week or until I reach my body fat percentage goal.

One thing you’ll notice about my weekly cardio program is that I use a variety of different machines and programs and I change up the duration as well. But regardless of the other program variables I use, all of my sessions are brief and intense. If you want to get “beyond lean” and you want to get there fast, without spending hours a day in the gym, then you need to start trying some high intensity cardio today!

Goal Setting Secrets of The Real Life Indiana Jones
By Vic Johnson
www.mp3motivators.com

Remember when you were 15? Can you recall some of the dreams you had then? How many have you accomplished?

My reflection on that is what attracted me so strongly to the story of John Goddard, of whom the LA Times called, "The real life Indiana Jones," and one of his expeditions, "the most amazing adventure of this generation."

When he was 15, Goddard was inspired to create a list of 127 “life goals” (he called it “My Life List”). By his last count, the young seventy-something has accomplished 111 of these PLUS 400 others he set along the way!!

Here’s just a few of the ones he’s reached:

He’s climbed many of the world’s major peaks including the Matterhorn, Ararat, Kilimanjaro, Fiji, Rainier and the Grand Tetons.

He followed Marco Polo’s route through all of the Middle East, Asia and China.

He’s run a mile in five minutes, broad jumped 15 feet, high jumped five feet and performed 200 sit-ups and 20 pull-ups.

He was the first person to explore the 4200-mile length of the world's longest river, the Nile. (It was the number one goal of the 15-year-old Goddard and the one the Times called “the most amazing adventure of this generation.”). He has also been down the Amazon, Congo and others.

John has been to 122 countries, lived with 260 different tribal groups, explored the underwater reefs of Florida, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Red Sea, and more.

He has flown 40 different types of aircraft and still holds civilian air records; has read the Bible cover to cover and learned to speak French, Spanish and Arabic.

The last two on his original list included marrying and having children (he has six) and living to see the 21st Century, which he has done in style.

And I’m just getting started. But I think you get the point.

More than just one of the greatest adventurers the world has ever known, Goddard is an incredibly wise person, as this quote of his demonstrates: "If you really know what you want out of life, it's amazing how opportunities will come to enable you to carry them out."

How did John Goddard manage to live such an incredible life of achievement? Two simple, easily duplicatable “secrets:” He chose BIG dreams and he WROTE THEM DOWN.

There’s no power at all in small dreams. When the dream isn’t big enough, it’s too easy to give in to the obstacles that appear in our life. It’s very difficult to maintain the persistence that all great achievement requires when the dream is small or ordinary.

Harland Sanders was 65-years-old, with little more than a $105 Social Security payment in his pocket, when he started Kentucky Fried Chicken. He is said to have been rejected by over 1,000 banks before he became successful. If he hadn’t had a big dream his self-esteem could never have withstood such rejection.

One of the biggest dreamers in the world is Mark Victor Hansen. Working with his partner, Jack Canfield, their idea was rejected by 140 book publishers as “unsellable.” Today, their Chicken Soup series includes more than 70 titles that have sold more than 90 million copies in 39 languages. Mark says, “The more goals you set - the more goals you get. Think big, act big and set out to accomplish big results. ”

Not only must your dreaming and goal setting be big, but it must be in writing. Brian Tracy says that this act alone increases your odds of success by 1000%! Like many people, I’d heard that I should write my goals down, but like most people, I rarely did. Looking at Brian’s formula another way, the failure to write your goals and dreams down means that you’ve got less than a 1-in-10 chance of succeeding. Can it be any wonder then that most people don’t live their dreams?

Who knows where your life can go after it is driven by life goals. You may find yourself landing on the moon someday, which happens to be one of the few original dreams that John Goddard hasn’t realized.

Whatever you dreams may be, when you're doing your goal setting, make them BIG and WRITE THEM DOWN! Don’t be like the chap in this poem that Napoleon Hill included in the original edition of Think and Grow Rich:

"I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid."

HOW THE HECK DOES HE GET SO LEAN???
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tom Venuto is a natural bodybuilder who regularly competes at 4% bodyfat and below... with NO drugs, with NO "fat burning" supplements and while eating six times a day!

The fact is, there are probably very few people who truly understand fat loss better than Tom does, simply because he doesn't just research it or write about it - he lives it! (and has the ripped abs and 28 bodybuilding competitions under his belt to prove it!)

What Tom reveals in his best-seller e-book, Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, is essential knowledge if you want to get really, really lean, and until you understand these principles, you can't even hope to get lean enough to see your abs - which is what we all want right?

"Blame is always inappropriate, regardless of how justified you may feel. We are all responsible for where we are and the results we are experiencing. If your results are not to your liking, you should examine your beliefs. Check to see if your beliefs are integrated with your behavior."

– Bob Proctor

“When a person takes responsibility for their life and the results they are obtaining, they will cease to blame others as the cause of their results. Since you cannot change other people, blame is inappropriate. Blaming others causes a person to remain bound in a prison of their own making. When you take responsibility, blame is eliminated and you are free to grow.”
