Wow this is so true, awesome video mike. I have been doing 2 upper body days and 2 lower body days with 3 hiit cardio days. (Compound lifting, heavier weights, less reps)This is my 3rd week and this week I have been a mess. Depression, irritable, restless sleeping and so forth. I wasn’t sure if I was over training or not, because like you say we are so use to thinking more is better and this has clouded my judgement. It makes sense and is common sense that you work multiple muscle groups with all varies types of lifting (mostly compound) and that we don’t have to work as much as we think because its an over kill. I knew this all along but felt I needed the proof and for someone to say, “hey your doing to much.” So thank you so much for putting your info out there and your videos. At this time I am anxiously waiting on your book to arrive; thinner, leaner stronger and am now wanting to go get your knew one.
what are you talking about “DrSmart”? His physique is entirely possible with hard work and dedication, no steroids necessary, the trick if you want to build muscle is you have to start by watching your diet, you can’t just expect to lift a bunch of weights and build muscle if your diet sucks. Lifting weights is easy, but cutting out junk food can be tough. When you get your diet in check, then focus on lifting heavy and hard. The most important thing is being consistent and keeping a log and a good routine going. You won’t get very far if you’re inconsistent in this game. Start off by doing big compound movements, such as squats, pull ups, dead lifts and such. I know it’s tough for a lot of folks to find a good routine to keep them going but it’s vital that you do this, I’ve made some amazing gains in just a few months thanks to the advice I got over at this guy really helped me get a great program going that allows me to keep track of my weight and gains using a really neat tool, as well as an awesome routine. Anyways good luck and never give up on your journey to making big gains!
