We know that high intensity muscle overload is the key to building new muscle. But how do you know if today’s chest exercise really has a higher intensity than last week’s chest exercise? If you train the way most people do, you can’t know for sure. The same is true for every major muscle group of your body.
But there is a way. The Power Factor number allows you to see each muscle’s intensity. The Power Index number allows you to see how far you went at that intensity. These two measurements, used together properly like a speedometer and an odometer, are what allow you to deliver unprecedented power, endurance and size gains to your muscles.
I’ve worked for years to create brief, efficient workouts. But I’ve heard from many people who tell me they don’t care as much about quick workouts as they do about building more muscle power, endurance and gaining as much muscle size as possible. Even if that means longer workouts or more trips to the gym.
The Power Factor Workout is the answer to people who need – or just want! – more volume in their training. It is the first rational, measured workout designed to give you bigger muscles with maximum sustained power and functional endurance.
It’s easy to create a high-volume workout, you just throw every exercise plus the kitchen sink into the program. Trainers tell people to do three or four different exercises for each muscle, three or four sets for each exercise and to keep coming back every few days to repeat all of it. The obvious result is people burn out because those programs are not sustainable. That always becomes obvious. But the invisible problem is their intensity is not high enough to… Read more…
