Do you want to increase your strength? Do want to build lean muscle?
Over the past few weeks, I have been getting bombarded with emails and YouTube comments from people that are concerned about doing my metabolic workouts and losing strength.
That can be further from the truth. The reasons why I use these metabolic workouts are to increase my strength and build muscle. Remember 4 years back used to be 210lbs of puffy muscle and although I had strength, I was not a muscular and lean.
Fast forward to today and I am 185lbs, ripped and have more overall strength than ever. (It didn’t take long for me to get there either).
The fastest way to increase your strength and build muscle is ensuring that you include the “BIG” compound movements into your training. Those are the exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once.
If you follow my workouts you know that I always include at least 3-4 of the “BIG” exercises in the circuit, to ensure that these metabolic workouts are effective at helping you and myself increase our strength.
