AIM Radio Ep 012

Special Guest:  John Gorman

Take advantage of all the amazing information brought to you by our special guest John Gorman.  John is one of the top diet coaches in the country, he is host of the TNT (Training and Nutrition Truth) Podcast, published author, gym owner, owner of The Phat Muscle Project, 1st Phorm Elite Trainer, Co-owner of the Physique Summit with Cliff Wilson and has a long list of winning bodybuilding, physique and figure competitors as his coaching clients.

Join us as we discuss metabolic adaptation, reverse dieting, calorie adjustments, training and cardio.  In this podcast we try to draw down on the key points for those who have been yo – yo dieting for many years with little success and those who have over time, unknowingly slowed their metabolism by falling into the trap of a busy life with only one large meal per day and very little physical activity. 

Follow along as we outline what a slowed metabolism looks like and how to stair step your way back to a fast metabolism by using meal timing, calorie increases and weight training, priming your body for fat loss through small periodic calorie reductions. 

Be sure to go check out John’s two amazing books Metabolic Capacity and Reverse Dieting and The Flexible Fat Loss Solution. These are two the most informative books I have ever owned and will definitely take your physique or fat loss journey to the next level of success.

Progressive Workout Splits for Fat Loss

We’re back!!!!!  We’ve been away too long!  Join us as we knock off the rust after 1 month off of recording.  There are definitely lots of slips, stumbles and of course Brandi being GOOFY.

During this episode we discuss progressive workout splits, how to utilize each one and for how long.  

Plus more shit talking from Captain Nasty about the Maritime Throwdown.

 

WHOLE BODY TRAINING  

  • Work all major muscle groups by using multi joint compound moves,
  • Allows you to train each muscle group 3 times per week, providing ample recovery time while also building volume. 
  • Very good for beginners in order to adapt your nervous system  to get better muscle contractions, lifting is a learned skill . 
  • Using compound movements and hitting the entire body causes greater production in testosterone and growth hormone
  • Burns the maximum amount of calories during the workout and stimulates a boost in metabolism up to 48 hours. 

UPPER BODY / LOWER BODY

  • Breaks the body down
    • Upper body
      • chest, back, shoulders, biceps  and triceps
    • Lower body
      • quads, hamstrings, calves and often abs simply to reduce the over all volume on the upper body day. 
  • Allows each muscle group to be trained two or even 3 times per week if your schedule allows 
  • Allows for more volume per muscle group by train fewer groups per work out
  • Better variety of movements , sets and reps even the use of different movements on separate workouts throughout the week. 
  • More intensity per muscle group

PUSH, PULL, LEGS (THREE DAY SPLIT)

  • Breaks the major muscle groups into 3 separate workouts
  • Major muscle groups are paired with assistant muscle groups which are engaged through each movement
    • Most commonly chest / shoulders / triceps,  back / biceps / forearms, with a separate leg day (abs on leg day)
  • Breaking muscle groups down further allows for more intensity and volume per muscle trained in each session.
  • Commonly set up
    • Chest, Shoulders, Triceps on Monday
    • Quads, Hamstrings, calves on Wednesday
    • Back, Biceps, forearms, abs on Friday
    • Can also be set up for twice a week training Mon, Tues, Wens, then repeat Thurs, Fri and Sat with Sunday off.  

Four Day Split

  • Divides all the major muscle groups into four separate training days. 
  • Allows you to train fewer muscle groups per workout 
  • Each muscle group trained can be do with more intensity and volume. 
  • Pairs large muscle groups with smaller ones that assist larger groups
    • chest / triceps
    • back / biceps 
  • Each set of the large muscle groups serves to pre exhaust  the smaller muscle group 
  • Typically set up for:
    • Chest, triceps, abs on Mondays
    • Quads, hamstrings and calves on Tuesday
    • Shoulders, Traps and abs on Thursday
    • Back, Biceps and forearms on Friday. 

Guidelines

  • Always watch for stalls in your progress
    • Any stall in strength gains or fat loss could be a sign that you need a change to spark new progress. 
  • Beginners start with whole body
    • 1 to 3 months 
  • Whole body
    • 1 to 3 months 
  • Upper body/lower body
    • 4 to 9 months 
  • Push/Pull Legs
    • 10 to 18 months 
  • 4 or 5 day training split
    • 19 months plus 
  • Advanced beyond 20 months consider
    •  twice per day training
    • body part training 
  • 16 to 20 sets per muscle group or 40 sets per workout depending on
    • type of training
    • rest between sets
    • over all recoverability

Are you living with Type 2 Diabetes like so many of my maritime brothers, sisters and their families?  I too live with Type 2 Diabetes as my own mother has Type 2 Diabetes.  Fighting Type 2 Diabetes is one of my passions.  In fact, it was and is a driving force behind what lead me to begin my journey to offer FREE HELP to all that will listen and take on the fight to combat their Type 2 Diabetes.

Brandi:

AIM Radio Ep 004

We address one of the oldest debates in physical fitness and we back it up with our really, really, really long book passage.  Aerobic or Anaerobic.  We’re really sorry about how long that portion is.  We’re new and we’re still learning but hang in there and listen to it.  It is loaded with interesting information on this particular topic.  Also, please excuse the discussion of Brandi’s sunburned boobs at the beginning!!!!  Sorry, not sorry!!!

During our “Do you want to look good or be fit” segment, we give our opinions on what that means to us and others, training for what you want and Brandi gives her idea on why the term “bodybuilding” is a put off to so many people.
