Building bigger muscles may be easier than most people think. Gains can really accelerate once you understand how and why hypertrophy happens, which we’ll get to in this installment. First you need to understand the 4X method, a fast-blast training sequence of four sets for each exercise with short rests between sets. Even though the poundages are moderate and only one set is all out, 4X has produced some great gains for us in the past year, much to our surprise.
For the uninitiated, a 4X sequence is taking a weight with which you can get 15 reps but only doing 10. You rest 30 seconds, and then do another 10; rest 30 seconds one last time, and rep out on the last set. If you get 10 reps on the fourth and final set, add a small amount of weight to that exercise at your next workout.
The short-rest, moderate-weight four-set sequence does a number of good things for growth, including downplaying muscle-eating cortisol, a catabolic stress hormone; reducing joint wear and tear due to the absence of bone-crushing poundages; and building both sides of the key 2A muscle fibers that are most prevalent in the biggest bodybuilders.
Those first two – limited cortisol release and less injury potential – are self-explanatory, but optimal growth-fiber stimulation and hypertrophy may seem vague, so let’s check out some facts on fiber – the kind of muscles, not the kind that keeps you regular.
Building Ultimate Muscle
The muscle fibers with the most growth potential are the fast-twitch 2As. They are dual-capacity fibers, meaning that they have both a power and endurance component. That’s why so many claim that eight to 10 reps per set is the best range for hypertrophy – because the weight is heavy enough to stimulate the power side, but you get enough tension time to affect endurance positively.
The reality is that most trainees use a one-up/one-down cadence on every rep. that translates to 20 seconds or less per set, a strength-building time under tension. Most research says that you need 40-plus seconds to get the optimal growth response. Why? Fatigue. Accumulation of lactic acid in a muscle will derail stress on the power side of the 2As.
When we say “power side”, we are talking about the myofibrils, which are strands of actin and myosin inside the fiber. They grab onto one another and pull, overlapping to shorten, or contract, a muscle. You develop the myofibrils with lower rep strength training. Myofibrils equal force.
The “endurance side” of the 2As is the sarcoplasmic fluid inside the fiber, which consists mostly of energy constituents such as mitochondria, ATP and glycogen. To increase that fluid and plump up a muscle fiber, you must push the fiber to a fast-twitch endurance threshold. You do that with higher reps on a set and/or shorter rests between sets.
As we’ve said, a 4X sequence stresses both the myofibrils and the sarcoplasm – a power-endurance balance that can produce extreme size gains. Lately, however, we’ve been questioning whether the power component is adequately taxed, especially on the second and third exercises for a muscle as fatigue peaks. There may be a need for a periodic power-style training to complement our exclusive 4X work-outs in order to maximize myofibrillar growth.
Infrequent Power-Mass Training
The road to the fastest big-muscle gains is paved with change – and you can run into a lot of potholes along the way. They can range from no-gain plateaus to major and minor injuries – all things you want to avoid.
By using 4X workouts exclusively, we have avoided those potholes – but we often ask ourselves , have our gains have been as fast as they could have been?
We are at our highest lean bodyweights and have visible abs. That’s a good sign that our mass-building systems are moving forward, but are they truly in overdrive? After contemplating the fatigue factor, see if we can push past our best lean bodyweights with some changes.
First, we have gone back to a more extensive direct/indirect split that has us hitting muscles two to three times a week. For example, we hit triceps when we train chest with pressing movements; then a few days later, when we train triceps, we hit chest indirectly with close-grip bench presses. We have that type of direct-indirect correlation for every body part.

Battle wih the ex files
Sunday, June 17, 2012
I consider myself to be in an elite club, so to speak. I can honestly say that I weigh less than when I got married, 22 years ago! I hear so many people complaining about how much weight they've gained since they got married, and I must admit, it feels good to be thinking, not me! I am NOT in that category! I feel like it is only fair, since when I got married I weighed 238 pounds, and my fiances Mother tried to get him to break off the engagement because, as she put it, "she is fat, and has no muscle tone!" Also, I could not find a beautiful Wedding Dress that fit me, so I had to go through the humiliation of having a seamstress add an extra panel to each side! Believe me, I more than paid the price for being an overweight bride!
I Addressed WHY I Overate:
Several things have helped me lose more than 50 pounds since my Wedding day. Even though I had been on numerous diets, and had lost weight, I always gained it back and then some. I realized that I needed to stop dieting and learn how to live a lifestyle that would make me healthier, and in turn would help me lose weight. I started therapy with a counselor to help me with self esteem issues, that stemmed from my childhood. Counseling helped me cope with my feelings. In turn, I didn't turn to food for comfort as often. That was the beginning of shedding more than 50 pounds and gaining my self respect and self esteem back!
walk, Walk, WALK!
I started walking every single day! This started with a quarter mile, than a half a mile, then a mile, until I was walking two miles a day! I felt better physically and mentally, then I had in my entire life.
I found out portion control worked much better for me than not being able to eat something I craved! If I denied myself something I wanted, I would end up binging on it. I found that if I allowed myself to eat what I wanted, in moderation, and what tasted good to me, the pounds came off without the misery and without the relapse.
I still have about 20 pounds to lose to be at an ideal weight, but I am getting there! The great thing is that I am enjoying life as I work towards this goal, and do not feel deprived and hungry! I am enjoying shopping in "regular" stores, fitting into any booth at a restaurant and not having the aches and pains that came with being overweight. I am living life and loving it!

When Lulu decided to marry her prince charming she had no idea that soon after the honey moon her prince will reveal his true colours. On the outside world world things seemed fine but there were not rosy at all. Her prince drank and smoked a lot and all the abuse would start. He would beat her in front of the kids and didn’t care about the neighbours or whoever cared to watch and the world would watch her going through the pain.Relatives and friends would advise her to leave the man, but she was blinded by what she called love and fear. She would define being beaten as an expression of love and being accused of having affairs as his deepest love and affection. For a very long time she lived in humiliation and she even became used to the beatings and the abuse. Living in fear everyday not knowing what each weekend will bring,another insult,another day where her kids would watch her being beaten to a pump. Opening cases and closing them. Hiding bruises under heavy makeup. Promises from him every day that he will never beat her again, after a few days same beatings and abuse and he would blame her either for not coming home early from work or for being with another man.Eventually he stopped supporting the family she would struggle everyday to pay for all the expenses and the needs for their kids, but still she continued with the hope that he would one day change and be her prince charming again. Year in, year out, family meetings, counselling sections he would promise to change and commit to his family. He would swear never to make her cry. As promised he didn’t beat her again but things took a turn for the worse as he changed from physical abuse to emotional abuse. He would call her a useless good for nothing woman who has no morals. He would call her someone who didn’t deserve the "lobola"(bride prize" he paid for her. The insults were even done in front of the kids.

Grief is an emotional response one feels when someone or something you love has been taken away from you. Many things can cause you to feel this way, such as the death of a loved one, the death of a pet, losing a job, a divorce, a break-up and many more causes. The closer something was to you, the more intense your grief will feel.
How we handle our grief can be different for every person though. The healing process may take a long time, or you may heal quickly. Some people grieve for months and some for years. Coping with that grief in a healthy manner will help you get back on the road to feeling normal quicker. Here’s what you should remember for yourself or loved ones, whoever’s afflicted.
1. Get Support
The most important part of healing is to have the love and support of others around you. As hard as it may be for you to express your feelings, it’s much healthier to do so when you are experiencing feelings of grief. Sharing your loss and feelings with someone else will make the burden feel lighter. Accept the support others want to give to you as grieving alone is much harder. Connecting with others is going be a big part of healing. Stay close to the people you love, and let them be the ones you lean on.
Finding comfort with whatever it is you have faith in is a very healthy way to begin healing. If you are religious, let that comfort surround you and know that you’re going to get through this using your spiritual faith. If you’re an atheist, take comfort in whatever it is you have faith in – love, friendships, mankind, whatever it may be.
3. Support Groups
Even with people around you who love you and are trying to help, you may find that people who have experienced the same thing you are going through can provide better support. To find a support group for bereavement, you can check with funeral homes or hospitals. Check the internet as well for both online groups and better info on local groups.
4. Grief Counselors/Therapists
If things become too overwhelming and you don’t feel you are managing your grief well, professionals such as therapists or grief counselors can help. They are experienced in the field of helping peoplegrieve and will help to get you through the obstacles you are facing.
Grieving is certainly an individual experience for everyone and how you manage that grief can help you heal much faster.
