MUSCLES ARE A HUGE PART OF WHAT THE BIGNESS PROJECT IS ALL ABOUT. BUT WHAT WE'VE FOUND, TOO, IS THAT IT'S, WELL… BIGGER THAN THAT. IF YOU FOLLOW THIS PATH, YOU'LL SEE WHAT WE MEAN.
You'll begin to see results quickly ? within the first 14 days, after tackling four muscle-building sessions per week. By the second half of the program when we add in the fifth day (I told you this hard work), you'll see results on the outside and the inside.
- There's no guesswork involved?each step that will help you change your physique is backed by tried-and-true methods so that you build visible muscle on your body. There's no more spinning your wheels in workouts that don't work the way you want them to and you'll look like you lift more than ever before.
- A better mind-muscle connection. Learn cues that will help you literally activate more muscle fibers simply by thinking about it. The intense focus and mental engagement also helps you build more body awareness.
- Strength imbalances get buffed out by training with more of a focus on single-sided movements
- Higher volume means you'll necessarily have to lower the weights, and a side benefit of working with lower weights is a decrease in chances of injury.
- A second benefit of working with lower weights is that it can be more accessible to people for whom high-intensity exercise is off limits: those with hormonal or other issues (but of course, as with any fitness endeavor, consult with your health-care professional first). Strength-training can be thought of as upgrading the software of your body, but it's hard on the system to upgrade the software. Hypertrophy training, on the other hand, is like upgrading the hardware ? it makes the software run better
- A deeply creative, meditative focus during weight training?unparalleled to other styles of resistance training, which can be more task-oriented.
- You get to adorn yourself with new muscle in places you want to put it! The magic of hypertrophy training is in the self-care and the ownership of your path
- Optional access to resources from nutrition titan Renaissance Periodization. If you choose that option during the checkout process, you will be granted access to a super-simple, super-effective nutrition plan customized for your gender and bodyweight. That way, you know you're fueling your body for the work you're putting in
