Phases 9-12 -Extreme Grit
This phase was fun putting together. It’s sadistic, hardcore and will test your fortitude. But if you can come out in the end (which I know you will), you’ll look, feel and be that much more muscular and stronger. You’ll finally become the animal that you always wanted. The guy in the gym that everyone secretly stares at out of the corner of their eye with whispering rumors that you’re on some secret sauce.
Are you ready for it? Let’s dig in.
First we’re going to start out with extreme frequency. It’s the same type of phase that you worked on during the first block of workouts but taken up a notch. Inside this phase, you’ll be hitting each muscle group 3-6x per week, pushing the envelope of recovery. Be sure to have your diet in order during this because you’ll need the calories and nutrients to recover.
Next up is extreme accumulation. Inside this phase you’ll be building upon the previous but jacking up the volume. Again, pushing the envelope. This stuff is no fluff and no B.S. From there, you’re going to cut down the volume a bit, but increase the intensity within your workouts. You’ll be employing all sorts of advanced torture techniques such as drop sets, rest pause reps, cluster sets, static contractions and more. These are designed to fatigue every single muscle fiber so nothing left is untouched.
And last, but not least EXTREME HYPERTROPHY! Can you smell the end? You’ve come this far so there’s no going back anymore. The last phase of workouts that will test your strength, grit and gusto inside of the gym. Give it all you’ve got in this last phase and leave nothing left in the tank because once you’re done, nobody will be able to recognize you!
