What’s Missing From Your Program?
Have you ever wondered why your workouts suck? No? Well even if you didn’t, chances are you’re not performing in the gym nearly as well as you could be if you actually took the time to warm-up properly. Yeah, yeah, yeah, like everyone else you don’t have the time to warm-up. You just put in a full day’s work, you’re exhausted, you’re hungry, and your wife/girlfriend/Xbox is waiting for you at home. I get it. Time is a rare commodity, and you need to get in, get your pump on, and get the hell out of dodge.
If you’re in the minority and take the time to warm-up at all, you most likely hop on the bike for a few minutes, perform a few arm circles, maybe touch your toes a few times, wink at the hot chick on the elliptical, and then you’re off to the bench station – along with every other meat head under the same roof. I mean, it is Monday, Wednesday, Friday afterall.
With the release of Accelerated Muscular Development (AMD) 2.0 next week, my good friend Jim “Smitty” Smith, of the Diesel Crew, has just shared an awesome video discussing, in detail, some of the missing components that are absent from 98.2% (give or take) of the programs you come across on the interwebz.
www.acceleratedmusculardevelopment.com <--------- *FREE* VIDEO In it you'll see why the warm-up is arguably the most important component that many (if not all) trainees tend to disregard, if not skip altogether. What's more, you'll also see why following a proper warm-up will help you not only feel like a million bucks, but also help improve performance, help reduce nagging injuries, and if you're lucky, make people want to hang out with you.
Specifically, Smitty talks about his AER system which is a three-component system that includes:
1. Self Myofascial Release
In short, it’s a 16 minute video that’s well worth your time.
Then again, if you’re happy feeling like you’ve been hit my a mack truck 24/7 and wondering why you’re never able to make any significant progress under the bar, then maybe this video isn’t for you (note sarcasm).
Do yourself a favor and head over to www.acceleratedmusculardevelopment.com to check out this awesome resource.
In addition, check back later this week because I’ll have an exclusive interview with Smitty himself as he discusses AMD 2.0 in more detail. In the meantime, don’t you have a video to watch?
