Lift Less - Get Huge: The Secret Formula (Part II)

In Lift Less and Get Huge (Part I):, I asked you if you would be willing to lift less weight in order to get HUGE.

If your answer was yes, its time for the next question.

Would you believe there is a secret formula that makes this happen?

If so, would you follow the formula, even though it involves some basic laws of physics?

If so, read on ...

The Secret Formula To Lifting Less and Getting HUGE

In physics, there is a simple mathematical formula for FORCE - which is what we are trying to generate as we are training.

FORCE (F) = MASS (m) * ACCELERATION (a) --> (F = ma)

Because most of the people who read this blog can hardly get the right weight on the bar*, I will make this as simple as possible.

  • Force = the capacity to push or pull something
  • Mass = how much something weighs
  • Acceleration = how fast something is moving

*(I am not kidding about this. I would invite any one of you to come to our gym and ask someone to put 255lbs on a barbell. It takes 3 people, a calculator, and a 5 minute debate to actually make this happen - and half the time, they are off by about 10lbs in either direction).

F = m * what???

I am sure most of your heads are spinning, so I will end here for now.

In Part III of this mini-series, I will explain how you can use this secret formula to help reduce injury, improve range of motion, increase Power, and most of all -- GET HUGE.

Lift Less - Get HUGE: The Secret Formula (Part I)

What if I told you that you could lift less weight and still get huge?

Would you think I am crazy?

If I proved I was right, would you do it?

Would your ego get in the way?

Would you worry about your lifting stats?

What if I told you that by lifting less weight, I can help you move more weight?

What if I told you that by lifting less weight, I can get you stronger ...

Without joint pain ...

Without risk of injury ...

And with a HUGE increase in Power Production.

Would you do it?

A Letter to the Class of 2012


Today mark's the first day of our Summer 2012 Training Session.

Even as I write these words, I am 100% certain that at least one person will miss this morning's lift.

As we move forward, I ask you all to some serious soul searching.

How bad do YOU really want this?

Is SLEEP more important?

Is PARTYING your true priority?

Will you walk away from COMPETITION, when you think you can't win?

Will you sacrifice form so you can add more weight?

Will you constantly try to Throw Paint on the Mona Lisa?

You became part of Advanced Training for a reason.

Don't let the opportunity slip away.

Test Week at Advanced Training, May 2012

Last week was Test Week At Advanced Training.

Once again, no walked away disappointed.

Once again, we made HUGE GAINs in a four month period.

Once again, I feel like I need to prove to the world that this stuff works.

If you want proof, here are some of the gains our guys made.

(Please note, these are not 15 year old kids who double their strength just by existing. 
Most of these guy's are in their 20's. The other ones have been formally strength training for the past 4 years.)

Chris Iorizzo:

  • 20" on broad jump
  • 20lbs on deadlift
  • 9 reps to pull-ups

John Verderosa:

  • 50lbs on bench
  • 30lbs on deadlift

Eric Santos:

  • 45lbs on bench
  • 35lbs on deadlift
  • 18" on broad jump
Ralph Zerilli:

  • 25lbs on bench
  • 16 reps to pull-ups

Antonio Zerilli:

  • 20lbs on bench
  • 25lbs on deadlift
  • 8 reps to pull-ups

Ryan Smith:

  • 25lbs on bench
  • 20lbs on deadlift
  • 10 reps to pull-ups
