For those who spend more than 1 minute on strengthtraining workouts, you are wasting your valuable time!Wouldn’t you want to strength train in the most effective, scientifically feasible way, and increaseyour muscle and strength by 400 plus percent?

One (1) minute muscle developing workouts are doneONCE per week or less. That calculates to maximally 4 minutes of strength training exercises per month! I am sure many people are saying that I havegone mad. The famous words, “he’s got to be kidding” are ringing vigorously in my ears. Dear reader, I amNOT kidding! Thousands of people are now exercisingless while getting tremendously better results. It is not just me stating this; the scientific documentation by far speakslouder than our conversation.

I would like to tell you about a client of mine named Todd.Todd, a relatively lean 46 year old, wanted to improve hisstrength and muscle tone. Prior to consulting with me, he followed the typical 3 days per week, 3 sets per exercise,and 3-4 exercises per body part routine. Todd was following the program John, his neighbor, told him about. Neighbor John received all his information from typical “bodybuilding magazines.”

Yes, Todd did get results in the beginning due to the initialadaptation of physical activity, but after three months, gains keptcoming slower, and slower until there was no progressionat all in his strength and muscle size. As a result of limitedprogress, Todd told me he hated to workout. He said he was tired all the time, and workouts were taking up too much time in his life. This is precisely the point in which he contacted me for help.

I quickly diagnosed the reasons for his challenges, andenthusiastically told him to take three, yes THREE weeksoff where he would not lift one single weight. After the three weeks, I explained to him his program was not effective, efficient, nor based on rational, sound exercisescience principles.

Todd’s initial program took him 4 hours per week; therefore, I condensed it down to 1 minute per week. He was hesitant, and thought I was joking. However, I reasoned with him, andhe started to see significant strength, and muscle gains not monthly, but after each workout. My rational approachto his new effective, efficient, result producing program is attributed to hi intensity, Static Contraction Training.

The majority of driven bodybuilders are not thinkinglogically, or scientifically about what they are doing. They justdo what the next person does. This current non-rational bodybuildingapproach, that has been around for decades, leads to wastingvaluable time, overtraining, and lack of long term progress. Hi intensity, Static Contraction Training does neither of these!

First of all, Static Contraction Training is based on the principle of activating the absolute maximum number of muscle fibers possible in their greatest strength range, therefore, triggering the muscle fibers to adapt by getting stronger and larger in size.

Please be aware, strength training is not aerobic (low intensity,high volume work. ) It is a high intensity, all out maximum effort for an extremely short duration. Muscle growth can be broken down into two main principles which I have practice for years, intensity and rest/recovery. In order to stimulate muscle growth, you need to provide a greater intensity or apply a greater stimulus than you generated in the previous workout, thus, activating the growth mechanism. Once this highly complicated growth mechanism is triggered, you MUST let the body replenish its limited reserves, compensate for the stimulus, and overcompensate to adapt for another training session. The precise amount of rest is mandatory in order to complete the muscle growth process. In the event you fail to allow sufficient recovery time to occur, you most definitely will short circuit the growth process, significantly compromising results.

Another crucial aspect of progressive results is tracking progress, and rest days between workouts. If you are not progressing each workout, you need more recovery time. If you areprogressing each workout, you have optimized your rest days. There is no fixed program for all. It is specifically individual. Some will need 4 days rest between workouts, while others need 12. Your specific numbers will dictate your rest days.

When performing Static Contraction Training, your objective is to statically (without motion) hold the maximum amount of weight you can in your strongest range of motionfor 5-10 seconds. Record that weight, and move onto the next exercise. If your intensity is high enough, and your rest is optimal, your numbers willskyrocket! This translates into significant strength, and muscle gains.

I could go on forever regarding the science, andstudies to back Static Contraction Training, but for the scope of this article I want to cover the basic, core principles.
