Put simply, How to Create a Great Body is the most comprehensive training system that I am aware of. It includes everything you need, whether male or female, to create the strong and muscular physique or the curvaceous and toned figure you have always wanted! It contains everything necessary not only to completely transform the way your body looks but also to improve every single key component of physical fitness, from your muscular, cardiorespiratory, and functional fitness to your flexibility and body composition!
You can download the ebook right now and start reading it within the next few minutes. Unlike any other ebook, you will receive How to Create a Great Body in all three popular formats: PDF, EPUB, and MOBI. This means that you can read it on all of your devices, including your phone, PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, e-reader, and Kindle Fire. You can also print a copy! Download the ebook to your phone and take the training programs to the gym! I’ve also provided alternatives for cable and machine exercises, so you can complete the weight training programs at home if you have basic equipment (see the table below for home training requirements).
The contents of the ebook are explained in detail below. You will also find its actual table of contents at the bottom of this page.
Divided into eight major parts, How to Create a Great Body is a complete guidance and training system that is absolutely packed with informative guides and meticulously designed training programs.
Part 1 introduces you to weight training and its benefits, goes over the details of muscle science, and reveals the fundamentals and methods of weight training. It also offers guidance on how to get started with weight training, find a gym or set up a home gym, warm up, cool down (stretch), track your progress, keep motivated, and ultimately succeed.
The Nutrition Guide covers all of the important elements of good nutrition, dietary management, and strategic eating. After beginning with a detailed look at all macronutrients and micronutrients, it explores calorie requirements, bulking and cutting, dietary tracking, supplementation, and nutrient timing. As a small bonus, the guide ends with advice on how to save money on healthy foods.
In Part 3, you will find all of the weight training programs — eight for men and eight for women. The men’s programs are designed for maximum muscle and strength, whereas the women’s programs are designed for maximum curves and functional strength. The eight programs include:
Completion of the beginner and five increasingly difficult programs will take one year and twelve weeks if you take a week’s break between each one. However, I balanced the programs meticulously so that you can repeat each one (except the beginner program) as many times as you want to with little risk of developing muscular strength imbalances. As such, the programs can keep you training and making progress for multiple years. With the aim of keeping you engaged, challenging you, and promoting continual progress, I designed the programs to incorporate a wide range of training splits (for example, upper–lower, push–pull, and push–pull–legs) and utilize a variety of intensity training techniques (for example, superset training, rest–pause training, and dropset training).
The plateau buster program is there for you when making progress starts to become more difficult. It is based on the pre-exhaustion protocol, which involves partially exhausting prime mover muscles with isolation exercises before moving on to the major compound exercises. Pre-exhaustion makes prime movers work much harder during the compound exercises, thus amplifying the stimulus for development and increasing your chances of pushing through plateaus. Meticulously balanced, you can repeat the plateau buster as many times as you want to. Since it is designed to produce the same results as the five increasingly difficult programs, you can also use it as the sixth program in the sequence.
If you’re a very busy individual with little time to spare for training, the minimalistic program is designed for you. The workouts of the program include the bare minimum of exercises and sets necessary to provide you with an effective full-body workout as quickly as possible. The exercises are arranged into supersets, which means that you can fly through them very rapidly. As with the other programs, the minimalistic program has been meticulously balanced so that you can repeat it over and over again for as long as you please.
You can complete the weight training programs at any gym. However, I have provided alternatives for cable and machine exercises, so you can also perform the programs at home if you have the following basic equipment.
Part 4 explains the fundamentals of power, plyometric, and bodyweight training, and presents power, plyometric, and equipment-free bodyweight workouts. It also gives you the tools necessary to design your own equipment-free bodyweight workouts, which you can use if you go on vacation or can’t make it to the gym and lack home equipment!
The Target Muscle Guide is very original. I haven’t seen anything like it anywhere. However, I added quite a lot of detail to it, so it’s not an easy read.
After briefly introducing you to joint articulations and the three planes of motion, the first half of the Target Muscle Guide reveals all of the main muscles that are activated by different types of exercise (for example, horizontal pulling exercises, glute/hamstring-dominant compound exercises, vertical pushing exercises, and quadriceps-dominant compound exercises). If you can read and understand this section, you will know exactly what you’re doing the next time you walk into the gym!
The second half of the Target Muscle Guide presents lists of all of the most effective compound and isolation exercises that target each major muscle and muscle head! Use it as a reference whenever you want to focus on developing a muscle of interest.
The Cardio Guide is very powerful! It begins by covering… Read more…
