    I love the workouts, the flexibility, and above all the results. I have been going at it for about 2 months now and I am seeing strength and endurance at 41 I did not have at 31 and lifting every day. Keep up the good work.

    Hi, my name is Sergio

    I am definitely water. My cardio is high and I play sports a lot. I have an alright body, but I am not content with it. I want a body like they show on tv and magazines. I think the biggest problem for me are my arms. My biceps aren’t too bad (maybe because I play a lot of basketball). The real problem are my biceps. They are way too small. Does my overall size have anything to do with my arm size? I am only 5’1, about 115 ibs. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I’m looking for a workout program that makes you bigger. Most workouts that I’ve come across are meant for people that are looking to lose weight. I don’t want that! I want to gain muscle. Besides, I’m already skinny. I’ve recently completed P90X and Insanity and I got good results. But like I said before, I want more! Another thing: I like working out my abs the most and I understand you aren’t supposed to overwork them. I’m trying to make them more noticeable. Right now I have a six pack (at least I think I do). However, I am trying to get an eight pack. Please help!

    P.S- Sorry if I’m asking for too much.

    Sorry I meant my triceps aren’t too bad, not biceps. Oops!

    Hey Elliott,

    I’m training with EDT style:
    Monday – Back/Chest (Push-ups/Chin-ups)+Triceps/Biceps (Dips/Barbell curls)
    Wednesday – Legs (Barbell Hack squats/Stiff-legged deadlifts)+Calves/Shin (Single-leg calf raises/Shin curls)
    Friday – Shoulders/Abs (Cleans/Inverse crunches)+Forearms (Wrist curls/Inverse wrist curls)
    This is the 3rd week of “Trial” of this workout style;)
    What do u think about it?

    I’m planning to increase body-weight exercise resistance by using some chains. And in the near future i would introduce some functional exercises like
    sandbag loading & kegs loading;)

    Excellent video. I really like the whole “hybrid muscle training” philosophy, it is legit. I have been doing some similar style training for nearly a year and am reaping the results. I have been able to burn fat, pack on more muscle, and get stronger all at the same time. My training for the majority of 2010 has been something like this.
    Mon: Chest
    Tue: Circuit workout like the “300″ sometimes finishing up with some tire flipping and sledge hammer work. Or perform a Kettelbell circuit (usually higher reps because I own 1 45lb KB)
    Wed: Back
    Thur: Shoulders
    Fri: Arms
    Sat: Legs
    Sometimes I will add another resistance type cardio workout and do tri’s with shoulders or chest, and bi’s with back. I also usually vary my rest time, reps, and intensity weekly or sometimes all within the same workout. After adopting this training style I have broken through so many plateaus it is ridiculous. I have lost about 15-20 lbs over this time frame and last week I benched 305 ten times, when towards the beginning of the year I could only do it three times. I have also added over a 100 lbs. to my squat and deadlift max. I really like your ideas and am going to add in some functional, strong man type training to my routine.

    have increased my bench press to 110 lbs (not counting the bar) This is awsome, at least to me, considering I started a couple of months ago with 50lbs and one cycle concentrating on upper body chest , arms and abs. Now doing two cycles with high intensity, heavy weight 5-8 reps, sets of 3.
    Thanks, the wife thinks I have sexy pecs and the arms are HARD bro!!!

    Hey Elliot:
    Awesome material here! Mate I just wanted to ask a question in regards to the structure and template you just described in the vids. This template seems to differ from the ones in the lean hybrid muscle program, are you using more of a single session periodisation? I know your also using macro and micro it just seems to me that from the video your stating day 1 or monday is (HI) (HV) and high (RI) yet in comparison in the program day one is using a few more variables other than the ones stated above. a lot of the other day’s seem to be the same with each session having a different structure than the ones in the vid. any chance anyone can help clarify this for me?


    Ryan Reply:

    Do u do each muscle once a week in this program? Im really confused on how to structure it. Look at my comment below

    Im confused on how i will hit different muscles with each of these training methods. Say i do chest on monday for the high intensity, low volume and more rest day. How am i going to be able to do chest for the low intensity, high volume and low rest day which is tuesday? Do i rotate which day each muscle is to be worked each week? Please respond im eager to get back to training i recently had a minor rotator cuff injury.

    I’m trying to get cut and strong for highschool wrestling. Any good tips from trainers, ex wrestlers, or wrestling coaches?

    How would the split of muscle parts you’re working be?
    For example mine:
    Monday- Chest & tricep
    Tuesday- Legs & calves
    Wednesday- Back & biceps
    Thursday- Off
    Friday-Shoulders & Traps
    Saturday- Cardio & Abs
    Sunday- Off

    Do i just keep the same routine and workouts but just switch up the intensity and all that?

    I need to get ready for Spring Break lol so I really really want to try this type of training to see if it’ll help me get to my goals quicker.
