Try This Kick-Ass Training Regimen for Maximizing Muscle Gains

So what's the best training method for maximizing muscle strength? Ask a hundred different trainers and you'll get a hundred different answers.

Indeed, the advice we get when it comes to strength training is no more clear-cut than the IRS tax code. Fortunately, we have researchers like Professor Mark Peterson at Arizona State University to help us sort it all out.

Recently, Professor Peterson carried out a comprehensive review of 37 strength-training studies performed on competitive athletes at the collegiate or professional level in an effort to pinpoint the training method that seems to produce the best gains in muscle strength. After review the data and crunching the numbers, Professor Peterson found that the maximal strength gains are elicited among athletes who:
  • Train at a mean intensity of 85 percent of one-repetition maximum
  • Train each body part 2 days per week
  • Train at a mean volume of 8 sets per muscle group 
What This Means to You:

According to this research, if you want to maximize gains in muscle strength, you should be training heavy, training often and training with a high degree of volume. Along these lines, a sample chest workout for someone with a maximum bench press of 265 pounds might look like this:

Monday
  • Barbell bench presses: 5 sets of 5 reps with 225 pounds
  • Incline presses: 3 sets of 8 reps with 205 pounds
Thursday
  • Dumbbell bench presses: 5 sets of 5 reps with 100-pound dumbbells
  • Dumbbell flyes: 3 sets of 8 reps with 50-pound dumbbells
Note: Rest 1 minute between sets. Try to increase the weight a little each week.

Fight Fat AND Build Muscle with Fish Oil

Earlier studies have shown that supplementing the diet with generous amounts of fish oil (which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids) decreases bodyfat deposition. However, it hasn’t always been clear whether fish oil works its magic by actually stimulating fat burning or by simply decreasing food intake. (Fish oil often does cause people to eat less.)

Recently, scientists from the Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Texas and from the Baylor School of Medicine set out to determine if fish oil reduces fat deposition independent of food intake.

Although the study wasn’t carried out on humans, laboratory animals often react very similar to humans when it comes to treatment with various nutrients and even exercise. And the findings may well come as good news to humans.
According to the researchers, it seems fish oil partitions fuel substrates away from fat storage and toward lean muscle growth. So indeed, it appears fish oil helps decrease body fat by mechanisms independent of food intake.

The best sources of fish oils are high-fat (10 percent to 15 percent) cold-water fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel, and trout.

Dr. Udo Erasmus, one of the world’s foremost experts on dietary fats and author of the book Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill, recommends people consume fresh cold-water fish, at least, every two weeks to maintain beneficial effects, since the oils from the fish take about two to three weeks to be completely metabolized in our body after being consumed.

Of course, if you can’t stand fish, there are a number of dietary fish oil supplements you can take that will also get the job done.

Beyond upping your fish oil consumption, here’s another trick to really ramp up your fat-loss efforts: Recent laboratory analysis from the University of Toronto have recently identified what could be called “The World’s Most Powerful Fat Burner.”

Specifically, these tests have shown a rare white tea grown in the Nandi Highlands of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley possesses a mind-blowing 25 times the fat-burning polyphenols of regular green tea and over DOUBLE that of high-potency green tea matcha.

So what exactly is this tea? It’s a high-grade, organic white matcha grown at an altitude of 6,500 feet above sea level under the bright sun of Kenya’s majestic Great Rift Valley — allowing the leaves to soak in extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants and fat-burning polyphenols.

This tea — called Kenya Rift Valley Reserve White Matcha™ — is NOT sold in stores and is licensed and sold to consumers exclusively through the website KenyaMatcha.com.

Advice for Men Suffering Slow Muscle Growth

Men Using This Compound Saw a 37% Boost in "T" Levels within a Matter of Days...

According to two new published university studies (one published in January and the other in May), the Gold Medal for Natural Muscle Builders goes to an exotic Indonesian tree root extract called Tongkat Ali.

Unlike other so-called "T-boosting" supplements, which are backed by "petri dish studies," Tongkat Ali is backed by peer-reviewed, placebo-controlled research carried out on actual human beings.

In the first human study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, men taking Tongkat Ali for 28 days (200 mg/daily) saw a 37% jump in their T-levels -- resulting in significantly improved libido, lean muscle tissue, and abdominal fat reduction. 


And in the second study published in the scientific journal Andrologia, the researchers conclude: "Tongkat Ali is a natural alternative to Testosterone-Replacement Therapy (TRT) and has been shown to restore serum testosterone levels, thus significantly improving sexual health."

That's the good news.


The bad news is trying to find authentic Tongkat Ali in supplement form, as it can be a daunting task. This exotic virility tonic is grown and cultivated in just two countries -- Indonesia and Malaysia. Unfortunately, an influx of imitation Tongkat Ali from China has flooded the market -- making the search for the "Real Deal" a frustrating one for consumers.

Out of the dozens of products sold through national health retailers, TeamANR's Certified Tongkat Ali supplement Adaptophen has managed to become one of the most trusted and popular with consumers. Countless Adaptophen Tongkat Ali customers, with the help of a regular strength-training routine, have reported experiencing:

  • Insane Muscle Gains
  • Skyrocketed Energy Levels
  • Enhanced Sports Performance
  • Incredible Focus and Work/Training Productivity
While Adaptophen can be found at many leading national health retailers at the regular retail price of $79.90 per bottle, for a very limited time, bottles are being made available online at just $37 a bottle — a savings of over 60% off regular retail prices.

ProHydrolase: Why It's "Steroids" for Your Whey Protein

Whey protein powder – still the “go to” supplement for athletes and bodybuilders — is much better absorbed and utilized when combined with specific enzymes, a new study has found.

The most recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study of the multi-enzyme compound ProHydrolase® combined with whey protein has shown improved digestion and absorption of amino acids along with reduction of the immunogenic responses associated with whey protein consumption, compared to whey protein alone. 

The researchers gave 20 athletes (aged 19 to 35 with normal healthy BMI) whey protein with ProHydrolase® for nine days and whey protein by itself for nine days. 

At the end of the study, the researchers found that total amino acid concentrations increased significantly (by 55 mg) more after taking the whey protein and ProHydrolase supplement than after just the whey protein-only supplement. 

In other words – taking whey and ProHydrolase provided 20% more amino acids than whey protein by itself.
 
ProHydrolase, when consumed with a whey protein supplement, encourages pre-digestion of the protein, allowing for the release of the full content of the essential amino acids for building muscle and improving muscle recovery. 

Here's a breakdown of the ProHydrolase study results:
  • Helps pre-digest whey protein so that amino acid levels in the bloodstream are up to 55 times higher compared to other leading protein enzymes on the market today. 
  • Can increase protein absorption by up to 300%.
  • Supports muscle building and improved recovery time.
  • Helps ensure smaller protein peptides are formed, which helps maintain normal CRP levels
Here is why this study has mass appeal: whey protein is the top-of-mind powder supplement for muscle-building. But there is an important step that allows for the body to utilize the whey. Whey protein is somewhat cumbersome for the digestive system to efficiently break down and assimilate, a process that requires specific enzymes (proteases). 

Typical whey proteins are bound together in a peptide complex that needs to be broken down for effective utilization. Ideally, for whey to help promote muscle growth and strength, it should be digested to at least the tetra-peptide level within 90 minutes to be used by the body. Absorption takes place in the small intestines. Larger protein fragments cannot be absorbed and become food for the micro flora in the large intestine which can contribute to unpleasant gas and bloating issues.

This research shows the impact when supplements can be effectively assimilated and thus utilized, thereby meeting label claims. This is crucial, because consumers do not feel their muscles being built and repaired, although they may feel the “afterburn” of a particularly rigorous session. 

Herein lies the key: it is no longer good enough to just rely upon faith that the protein consumed is going to work. With the addition of the specific protease blend, ProHydrolase, consumers can know for sure that they have a better whey.

Top 5 Benefits of Whey Protein

1. Increase Muscle Mass
 

Researchers from the University of Texas recently investigated the effects of both whey and casein protein on lean muscle gains. Lifters who consumed whey protein before and after their workouts saw a significantly greater increase in lean muscle mass and overall muscle strength.
 

2. Lose Body Fat
 

A recent study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the effects of whey protein and isocaloric drinks on athletes who reduced their daily calorie intake by 500 calories. Those who consumed whey lost a larger amount of body fat, yet managed to preserve their lean muscle mass. Whey protein shakes can significantly improve fat-loss efforts.
 

3. Reduce Hunger
 

Lower calorie intake often translates into greater hunger. Whey protein could take a bite out of that hunger. Australian researchers recently compared the effects of four different beverages on appetite suppression. The study participants who drank whey protein shakes experienced lower levels of ghrelin, a hunger-stimulating hormone. With results that last up to four hours, this is another reason whey may be the best fat-loss protein available.
 

4. Boost Immunity
 

Glutathione is an important nutrient for disease prevention, yet most people have probably never heard of it. “The mother of all antioxidants,” glutathione is essential for detoxification and immune system functioning. Preserving this molecule is yet another of the many whey protein powder benefits.

According to a new study from Canadian researchers, men who engage in strenuous physical workouts suffer significant reductions in their glutathione levels. This impacts not only their immune system, but also their gastrointestinal and nervous systems. By supplementing the diet with whey protein, glutathione levels remain balanced and the body can effectively fight disease and illness.


5. Reduce Stress
 

European researchers have recently discovered stress-reducing benefits in whey protein. In their studies, people who consumed whey exhibited a better mood and fewer signs of depression. This may be due to the protein’s effect on serotonin, a “feel good” brain chemical.

The Nutrition Trick to Maximize Creatine's Muscle-Building Power

Recognizing the powerful "driving force" insulin has on creatine uptake, yet well aware of the downside of ingesting boatloads of sugar to stimulate its release, researchers from Nottingham University wanted to see if ingesting creatine in conjunction with 50 grams each of both protein and simple carbohydrates would be as effective at potentiating insulin release and creatine retention as ingesting creatine in combination with almost 100 grams of carbohydrates.

To test this, the researchers recruited 12 bodybuilders and had them consume 20 grams per day (5 grams, 4 times a day) of creatine on four occasions in combination with
  1. 50 grams of protein and 47 grams of carbohydrates; or
  2. 96 grams of carbohydrates
Results showed that the release of serum insulin was no different when the protein+carbohydrate and the high-carbohydrate treatments were compared.

Bottom Line: Dump your high-sugar creatine powders and instead opt for a protein- and carbohydrate-balanced post-workout shake that includes creatine like our patent-pending Monster Mix Post-Workout Powder. You'll get the same effects without the sugar overload, which causes unwanted fat gain over time.
