Does Abbreviated Training Really Work?

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Yesterday I received an email from a reader
who asked whether abbreviated training really

Apparently, he's been reading "stuff on the
internet" that tells him he has to follow long,
frequent workouts to make any sort of
meaningful progress.

So let me offer a counter view to the interweb

I'll make it very simple. I'll give it you in six short
words -- and they even rhyme, so that will make
it very easy to remember.

If you over-train, you won't gain.

Period, end of story.

And that's what the Interweb whiz kids all forget.

It's not just how how hard you train. It's how you
recover from your training. No recovery means no
gains in strength and muscle mass.

Most trainees start off by making good gains, in
part because they're not strong enough to over-train.
But as they grow stronger and better conditioned,
they start to over-do things. And at that point, their
progress comes crashing to a halt.

Many trainees train for years without making any
progress because they over-do things in the gym
and they are barely able to stay even, much less
to make significant gains in strength and muscle

Go to any gym in the world, and you'll see this
happen over and over. It probably happens to
(9% of the trainees at the typical gym.

And no one seems to be able to figure it out --
which is amazing, because the answer is very
simple and very obvious:

Train less, but train harder and heavier.

So when someone asks me, "Does abbreviated
training really work?" the answer is this:

1. Yes, it does.


2. Try it and see for yourself.

And remember , there's an entire army of Dinosaurs
around the world who've found that abbreviated
training brought them the best results of their

If it worked for them, it will work for you.
As always, thanks for reading, and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a good

Yours in strength,
