666 Strength and Mass Review (Jason Ferruggia)

Jason Ferruggia’s most recent workout program is called 666 Strength and Mass.  I was curious as to why he decided to name the program after the biblical “mark of the beast” (Revelation 13:18).  But the answer became clearer as I began looking over it: the workouts often call for six repetitions.  I still would have chosen a different name, but let’s proceed:

This program is primarily designed for hypertrophy (gains in size).  Six is an ideal rep range, Ferruggia argues, because it allows the trainee to work with an optimal % of his one-rep max.  Going too much heavier may fatigue the central nervous system.

This is very typical of his programs: simple, short workouts for maximum gains.  It is designed for a four-day split (training 4x week), but you can adapt it for training three times a week if needed.

This is one of the first times I can remember seeing Jason include any kind of machines in his training.  But I completely understand his reasons: there are times when this can be safer or more practical than using free weights  when size is your goal (stabilizer muscles start getting “fried” later in the workout).

Review:

This workout program is most appropriate for intermediate/advanced trainees who are looking to add size.  You can click here to check it out or order it–please use my links if this review has helped you.

Note: Buying this program will set you up to be part of the Renegade Inner Circle. You get your first month free with the workout, then it’s $19.95 a month afterwards.  You can discontinue your membership and cancel billing at any time.  But I’d highly encourage you to try it out for a few months–you’ll get access to loads of diet/training information for under a dollar a day.
