Here is a question from one of our friends who is getting
great results using my Grow Stronger Method.
Yea, most people start breaking all kinds of records in the
gym when they cut back on the volume and focus mainly
That is how my Grow Stronger Method works.
I purposefully created the program to help you gain strength
with the minimal effective dose.
This way you can increase your lifts, without becoming overly
sore, burning out your CNS, or spending 2 hours in the gym.
You ask about increasing the volume of work done in order to
stimulate myofibrillar hypertrophy, once you have reached your
target body weight.
First, the very nature of myofibrillar muscle growth calls for
high intensities… just like we use in The GSM.
When you’re lifting weights as heavy as we are, you’re going to
have to drop your volume down.
That is why we never do more that 10 reps total for our primary
In this way your body will tend to add more “myofibrils” to your
myocytes or muscle cells.
These fibers add DENSITY to your muscles, which makes
them look and feel harder.
Unlike sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, where the fluids within the
muscle increases making you look “swole”….
…myofibrillar hypertrophy will create an effect where you’ll look
leaner and more dense.
Think about the muscles of an Olympic Gymnast or Wrestler
as what you can expect from myofibrillar hypertrophy…
…and the muscle bulk and size of a modern bodybuilder as what
you can expect from a high volume, low intensity program that
creates sarcoplasmic hypertrophy.
So, as you reach your body weight goal the best thing for you to
do is STICK with the plan…
…but always be adding MORE WEIGHT to the bar.
I’ll be creating a new “auxiliary” GSM in the coming months that
is tailored to “muscle specific” growth, for guys who want to perfect
the shape of their muscles for aesthetics purposes.
Basically that program will have you follow the same parameters
as the base GSM system, but add multiple bodyparts per workout.
Biceps Curls for 3×3, 5×2, etc. etc.
But for now, keep on GROWING STRONGER.
And keep dropping fat with your diet and cardio plan.
