I wrote a quick review of Hypertrophy MAX a few days ago. Since then I was fortunate enough to have a sneak preview of the Phase 1 workout videos. I was not disappointed–these are some of the most impressive workout videos I’ve seen.
Phase 1 of this program is called the Tension Torture Workout for Mass Control. As the name implies, this first phase emphasizes tension–putting the muscle under the strain of resistance for a prescribed amount of time during each repetition/set.
They also work on the “mind muscle connection”–training the muscles to fully contract. I can see how this would be especially helpful for training lagging body parts.
I really like Ben Pakulski’s scientific approach to training. I tried the calf routine yesterday and it’s the best workout I’ve had in a long time.
My endorsement for Hypertrophy MAX still stands. Just keep this in mind for Phase 1: you probably won’t be using a lot of weight for most of the exercises. I assume using heavier weight will come in later phases, so just trust the process (Ben definitely knows what he’s doing). Just click here if you are interested in this program.
