Okay guys, so I read a book called “Body By Science” that expressed and cited several studies that support the following claim:
You only need to workout once a week, with tremendous intensity (load), and slow movement (so as to no build momentum by throwing the weight up). I’m paraphrasing.
Turns out, that the book was only referring to relatively new studies, but that the concept has been around since the 70’s.
So picture this… no warm up needed, you go and do a series of exercises on machines, with extreme loads (75-80% of your max single rep). You do it very slowly, at a pace of 6 to 10 seconds with moving the weight for a total of 45 seconds to 2 minutes, some where in between.
There’s five total major exercises, you do your thing, and you’re in and out of the gym in less than 45 minutes.
You do this once a week (to allow for sufficient rest and adaption of your muscles).
After a while, you get lean, big and mean.
Does this really work?
Many thanks in advance.
