'I had one little mini workout. I couldn't believe how short the workout was and how good I felt afterward ...This technique is going to change your life' - Tony Robbins, author of "Awaken the Giant Within". Bodybuilding pioneer, John Little revolutionized the sport with his seminal books "Power Factor Training" and "Static Contraction Training", both of which offered scientifically based systems for maximizing muscle gain in a mere fraction of the time required by traditional weightlifting techniques. Now, dozens of scientific trials later, he again revolutionizes bodybuilding technology with "Max Contraction Training".Representing a quantum leap forward in fitness training, "Max Contraction Training" is the culmination of John Little's more than two decades of research and experimentation. It is the most efficient way ever devised for maximizing muscle fiber stimulation in the shortest period of time. Imagine a 10-second workout (yes, you read that right!) performed once a week that can stimulate up to 30 pounds of muscle growth! The Max Contraction system reveals why you do not need to spend hours a day and multiple days per week in the gym to have a muscular body.With "Max Contraction Training", beginners and advanced bodybuilders alike can get faster workouts and more impressive gains than they ever thought possible.In this book, you'll find: breakthrough techniques that MAXimize muscle fiber stimulation, four times more efficient than conventional techniques; optimal time frames for training muscles for maximum growth - many taking as little as 10 seconds to complete; ideal exercise structuring for a total workout routine customized to your needs and lifestyle; valuable nutritional guidelines for promoting rapid muscle growth; and, the truth behind all the hype put out by supplement companies and how and why many supplements do more harm than good.In addition, Little covers the stunning news that science has revealed as being the quickest way to stimulate pounds of muscle growth, the ideal structuring of exercises in a workout routine, the failure of conventional exercise methods, the optimal time frame to train your muscles for maximum growth - and much, much more.
