Wow, this was a long one. I hope I opened some eyes into some of the inner workings of the supplement industry. It’s not a pretty sight. It’s not a favorite subject of mine either. There are so many deceitful people and very dishonest companies involved in this business. Some companies are completely built on a foundation of lies and deceit. Their products are promoted through total false advertising. And this is all done to play on the emotions of the aspiring lifter who wants to gain muscle as fast as possible.
It’s an emotional trigger that the slick companies know they pull. Advertising is all about emotions and creating desire for something. Many of these companies know this and do what ever it takes to tap into your emotions. You need to be aware of this so you can save yourself a lot of money by not falling for the lies they tell to you.
I gave a brief overview of what are the most effective supplements you can use to help ignite and support muscle growth. This was in no way meant to be a definitive guide. This area is too broad. You can find out tons more by thoroughly looking over our website. Especially the Q&As, Breaking Research and Articles sections.
I added some new supplements to last week’s Max-OT Diet and Supplementation Program. The thing to remember is that you can get carried away taking every supplement out there. You don’t want to do this and you don’t need to do this. The most important thing is to have your diet and major supplementation categories down before you go looking for that magic pill.
Last we covered a new Max-OT training program. The point of this new program is to illustrate to you that the more intensely you train the less you have to do. Generating maximum intensity with maximum overload requires less volume for maximum muscle fiber stimulation.
As you progress with Max-OT and refine your ability to generate maximum intensity, you’ll see that you can create greater muscle growth with even less sets than before. The more you refine your Max-OT skills the less you’ll have to do to achieve maximum muscular growth.
Intensity and overload is where muscle growth comes from, not volume.
Next week I will cover the exercises most suited for Max-OT training and the exercises that are not. I will also cover proper exercise execution for maximum effectiveness.
Train hard and heavy and I’ll see you next Saturday.
