  • Extreme Bodybuilding

    By Travis Steffen on Sunday, October 4, 2009in Other  

    Here is a method of training that I guarantee you haven’t heard of.¬† This is a style of training that is¬†best used for extreme “bodybuilding”.¬† Now, when¬†I say extreme “bodybuilding”, I mean it in the true sense of the word….Building a better body to the extreme!¬† Not just larger muscles, but¬†extreme strength and endurance!! Here’s how its done….

    Most people will do work out routines that have 3 sets of 10 reps.

    Now there’s nothing wrong with this.¬† But were talking about going EXTREME!

    So here’s what you need to do.¬† For each of the 3 sets, have a different objective each time…It’s easier if I just show you first, and then explain it second…


    Bench presses

    Set no. 1 Р5 reps @ 80kg (Strength Training)

    Set no. 2 – 10 reps @ 50kg (Muscle building)

    Set no. 3 - 20 reps @ 15kg (Endurance)

    For each set¬†there is¬†a specific objective in mind, and the weights and reps have been adjusted accordingly.¬† By doing this you are training all aspects of¬†“bodybuilding” (strength, size and¬†endurance) .

    The results you will see will be EXTREME!
