Jun 06, 2021
you have to train hard you have to set to failure you have to do that it doesn't just say train hard because uh harder subjective you have to set to failure rigged trainer and today

what

I'm doing is I'm going to go through a video of John Meadows titled

natural

vs

enhanced

how to train so

what

i will do is watch the video apply explain whether or not what you are saying makes sense now if you don't know

john

meadows

he has three hundred and a few thousand followers he is a very smart guy he has a card IFBB Pro and he trains a lot of people, so he's just like me, only he's even older and has potentially more coaching experience than even me.
natural vs enhanced training   what are the differences my response to john meadows
I have competed. against him he is a great bodybuilder and he is muscular and has real world hands on experience not just stupid studies and everything i read in a study he actually walks talk talks and has muscles he is ripped all the time and i like seeing his stuff ok now if you want a little bit more about how he is he's just like me just nice so basically he'll tell it like it is but without ruffling the feathers so to speak I'm so interested to see his take on this because I have had many strong opinions about the

natural

horse. improved and then let's see if I agree or disagree with what he's saying see if we're on the same page or if we're not and trust me if we're not I'm going to say why so let's see don't think that any of we have doubts that additional pediatricians help obviously it's this 2020 who's going to say they don't work obviously they work so then he starts talking about a study and it's the same stupid study that irritates me. and it annoys me every time because no one seems to know how to read the study other than me, okay so he immediately jumps into this study and doesn't understand it.

natural vs enhanced training what are the differences my response to john meadows...

I think you do get it, but you chose to introduce it. in a way of making people believe something when it's not actually true, okay what's this about steroids building muscle without tr? Among the people who didn't exercise and took a placebo, so they didn't take the test, they took what they thought were maybe tests, they had no change in their muscle mass, the group that took the tests and didn't exercise, gained seven pounds of weight. muscle now this is where it gets interesting the people who took the placebo so they were still natural and exercised only gained four pounds so they exercised for ten weeks and gained four pounds of muscle but the group that took the tests and didn't even work out gained seven pounds of muscle therefore people say wow all we have to do is take tests we don't even go to the gym we'll build more muscle than those natural guys and then the final groups basically they took tests and trained and they gained 13 pounds of muscle so according to this study if you don't know what you're talking about you're going to say yeah you don't need to go to the gym you can just string tests together and you'll put on seven pounds of muscle because the study tests it but it tests azido we have 43 participants not all of them were doing everything there are 43 in each category there are 43 total participants in total if you take the test it's like taking a water bloating device it's like taking salt and water it's like being bloated it tests you bloat so when you gained 8lbs it's not 8lbs of muscle if you gained 4lbs it's not 4lbs of muscle maybe it's half if you're lucky so the group that gains 7lbs of muscle might have gained a pound of muscle might have gained 0 might have gained 7lbs of water retention testosterone will increase estrogen in the body which will cause it to store more water weight everyone knows i almost see oh , you're taking something now that you're bloated Getting tested doesn't make you look skinnier in fact when you take testosterone it makes you look Leslie you look bigger because maybe your glycogen stores up your water attentions but it doesn't look so skinny if you want to look slimmer remove the test if you are on a lot of tests and stop taking them you will actually look better without the test. it's going to get thinner so a lot of people are like oh you're on the test you say you're so ripped it's stupid it doesn't make sense so you're actually using this study for me incorrectly by saying the test is building muscle without

training

now when I say without

training

I mean a training stimulus if you are literally paralyzed and can't stand up you are not have you are paralyzed we know what that means you are not going to build your leg muscles taking tests , you can't just go on a trial and trend cycle and build massive quads if you're paralyzed, you need a workout boost, but the group didn't go to the gym and put on seven pounds did they sit down? on the couch and not moving the whole time did they go to play basketball tennis maybe they went to work where lifting wood at work they were construction workers cement layers Bricklin what jobs exactly did they have was their job completely sedentary to the point where they didn't lift anything all the time they were laying there sleeping and not moving or they had work intensive work if you're a lobster fisherman like I did for a while in the past and you're setting traps all day you can't tell me that if you were on testosterone and you were to that job you wouldn't t build muscle even without going to the gym half the people who lobster don't have time to go to the gym it's hard work you're lifting all day you're not training you're lifting all day hmm lifting all the day that's lifting training is training but you were in single digits so just because they didn't follow some damn program Approved training a, RP, whatever they need and the whole division.
natural vs enhanced training   what are the differences my response to john meadows
I don't care what they did, doesn't mean I don't actually do it. build muscle or build muscle you can't use this study as proof of anything it doesn't prove muscles are built without training it doesn't prove muscles don't build without training it's not like that it's just not right so don't use this study for nothing else. prove or disprove anything it doesn't make sense to me ok I don't want to discuss this topic anymore otherwise skip to the next point if you are a natural and you don't have all the advantages you actually need to train very intensely because it's more hard for you to create the adaptation you need to train really hard you can't go in there and just mess around and do some bombs outside expect to get a big boom he just said it this is we are one hundred percent on the same page this is what I was expecting I was going to say if you're natural stop using being natural as an excuse not to train her if you're natural it's harder for you to build muscle it absolutely is but it's not an excuse to start training as a say oh I can't train hard because I'm natural o oh if they see someone in the gym training ng hard they need to be going no thats stupid

john

is pointing he is saying if you are natural you have to train hard ro to build muscle not maybe in the future you have to as you need to be able to build the muscle you need a strong stimulus to make that muscle want to grow not an RPM five and oh I can't train hard and maybe in six weeks I will train hard because no, you train hard if your natural training is harder than before. time this hard you should watch him he's singing literally agrees with me he sings naturally you should train hard you have to train hard you have to set to failure you have to do that it doesn't just say train hard because uh the hardest goal you have to hit sets to failure, that's being very specific because all they can discuss is this, so I went hard, I went in the afternoon. three I only did three reps of the tank that's really hard because it's not natural to fail you have to take a few sets to failure you fail when you can't do any more reps you're and then I can't do it that's failure you need to train to failure doesn't mean you train like an idiot and cheat on reps it means you train park to failure not every set but you do need something there you're going to see a lot of this happening you're going to have a lot of people telling them exactly how many sets I do but they are all very different we all recover differently there are many factors involved so I want you guys to experiment but I am just giving you some guidelines so start there only start with a set when each exercise is so failed which i believe in too you cant just devise a plan and say do every set to failure do exactly five to failure and dude you dont know what I do and what it says to do. it's using pain as a measure of how hard you actually trained on the inside if you win and start and when you first join the gym now it may not be what he suggests when you first join don't go crazy go easy go very easy at first I don't care how hard you train if you have never trained before even an easy workout is hard your body is just not used to it you may feel sore it would be like going for a walk for an hour and you have never walked before it is a hard workout you don't want to start with a run so go easy at first if you're not sore the next day you can handle more and push yourself how hard more than last time how often you should do these workouts ok you can continue with the muscle protein synthesis after 24 to 48 hours training and all but it will all come down to how long it takes to recover and how long it takes to feel like you can get back in the gym no only physically but also mentally, you may not want to train chest every 24 hours, even if protein synthesis is ready in 24 hours, yes, I don't want to train chest seven days, so you have to be mentally and physically capable to do it too.
natural vs enhanced training   what are the differences my response to john meadows
Many of you are only training one body part a week. They can't just go from one body part a week to one body part every other day. full body twice a week if you want you can also do it three times a week max two to three times a week which means chest two to three times a week biceps two to three times a week go into toe shoulders quads two or three times a week set up a three day split eg train full body in three days then take a day off then repeat and continue that will be fine or you could do your full body in two days let your body go into let's say upper body lower bar whatever half and half two days in take a day off and repeat one of those programs should suit most people if you're super advanced crazy all that hard stuff you're doing so much boring so intense you will need more rest, so maybe it's in a four day split, on this list, but don't. a seven day split where you only hit chest once a week that's not proper training that's not scientific so split three days two split days go in and train and don't train so hard you're sore So John says don't pass don't pass how many sets pass how did you feel how did you recover if you're sore don't do an extra set to failure but if you're not flying you're fresh as a daisy didn't train harder to do another set to failure like this that depending on where you are in your training if you never do any sets to failure and you're like a you train half like you're just a single you train half -ass whatever just go a little harder a little closer to failure don't start failing all the time so work harder than last time and keep getting closer but if your natural realizes you still need to train hard enough to fail you will have to come not every set but in warm up ar, getting to the last set and then doing that last set hard, we go through phases where we don't want to have the intensity that we want to, maybe just not go crazy, so in that case we use the ad to push up the a little bit volume if you don't want to train hard all the time because as a mental break he doesn't say make a deal oh he says you know just change your training maybe try doing none of the sets to failure but just do a little more volume, but not all the time, don't be like, oh, I'm never going to train the heart.
I'm going to train with more volume from now on because that's easier to do, which is easier to never fail and just do a few extra sets. The teacher presented 10 easy sets and then 5 really hard sets. It works, you know, he's, you know, I think the big popular thing right now is, I think it's a fad, personally, he just trains everything every day, he's very respectful here, so he basically said there's this kind of trend, this fad on the internet to train like you're all over his body every day so Basically not saying what I'm saying don't train like Jeff Nippert he just said don't train like Jeff Nippert now if you did that all the time all this high volume training then it will probably be harder for you as a naturally built muscle. because again all the cortisol release and all that stuff, he never used his name because it'stoo good.
I'm not. I'll say that like I don't train like Jeff Nipper. I'm just not going to call anybody else he's too good a guy to do it and let me make this pitch and remember it's natural that you're gaining probably three to five years of our training you hate you'll peak I don't think that is true at all. I'm surprised he said I don't think he actually, but maybe just spread it. You know that many of these videos are not planned in advance. say things, you might say something off guard. I don't think John thinks you're at your genetic limit in three to five years of natural training, but that's what he's saying, he's saying your limit in three to five years, he's also saying you know you can train your whole body every day but there's no way you're training hard every day you just can't none of you did it you just think you are and maybe you're doing it but you're not doing it every day there's no way so for the naturals i know that the ultimate right now is to do a total body workout.
Personally, I don't think it's the optimal way to play. I'm not saying you can't gain muscle, I'm just saying it might not be the most optimal way to gain muscle as you go from advanced intermediate if you're a beginner sir train your whole body every day do whatever it takes, if you are a beginner you could go in there and just play around. with weights and doing every body part every day I'm okay with that but if you're advanced you're not and it's funny because the scientific literature that Jeff Nippert was pointing to said if you're advanced the more advanced you are the more you should train every body part every day and that beginners should only train it once in a week, that's all they needed to stimulate muscle growth and I was like that was the opposite of what he said anyway, John basically isn't calling anyone out, he doesn't see anything against anyone, but he clearly says no. train like Jennifer so I'm saying this for him don't train like Jeff Burton but if you want and don't care about maximizing muscle growth you're just looking for something fun to do in the gym which is great then do it like I'm not against training just for fun like just watching the girls and playing in the gym and relieving some stress getting away from the house and the kids and just going and training every day every day there is nothing wrong Wisconsin that and not even I'm being sarcastic like you probably think I'm being sarcastic like everyone else.
I don't even understand the sarcasm stuff anyway, it doesn't matter if you want to train like that, just enjoy training as I can go. for a bike ride outside doesn't mean i have to run and push myself i can just go outside and look at the fucking scenery it's fun get on it and Joyride you go to the gym and have fun you don't need to be alone like um hardcore I'm going to compete no 95% of the people I coach don't compete, so the competitors are the most annoying anyway. I hate coaching competitors in general. I'm being honest.
Half the competitors are screwed. If you don't want to compete, that's great. I am NOT encouraging you to just compete. If you want to compete, that's awesome and I'll help you, but believe me, it's annoying and it's very, very challenging and I do it. myself and obviously like it but i know the dangers involved what happens when you use the X bundled er and those carbs can calm as well especially when combined with amino acids those two together can calm the cortisol

response

he says it's beneficial to take it in training, I feel that it will not hurt, the

differences

are very insignificant, if any.
I'm talking about that 1% difference, I think if you're not on a diet and eating a lot it won't really benefit you, especially if you only ate before the gym, however you fear fasting or if you're not eating enough meals on the day when you're eating two or three meals a day or training fassett all of those things i absolutely think it would be beneficial or if you're dieting and you're in a deficit and all that and that's wrong therefore i think it's the same for any group So take what you want that's what I think it doesn't depend on life you need it but if you're on a diet or if you're fasting and doing all that kind of stuff and skipping meals it's definitely going to benefit you there's a natural .
I tend to have people around a gram per pound of body weight. It can be a little more if they are on a diet. My people who are

enhanced

can be 1.25 grams per pound. one for anyone there's no benefit to going like 2 grams per pound or going protein really high and honestly unless you're really dieting you don't even need 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight if you're bulking up or something you don't need as much it's not going to be more beneficial the reason is because the other foods you're eating have a nutrition partitioning effect on the other nutrients so if you're eating a lot of carbs fat doesn't really There is a lot of danger of protein being used for energy if you are eating tons of carbohydrate protons in fat.
The protein will be used to do what it needs to do, which is build muscle if you're on a diet. to be used for energy and so could benefit from more protein the reason i use a high protein diet is for a quit effective protein house so its more when i eat chicken breast fills me up more than if i eat rice, carbs make you crave food more, it's not often that someone says oh me I binged I ate 19 chicken breasts and couldn't stop once I started on the egg whites egg and tuna. pizza sushi whatever it is it's those kind of foods that drive you to keep eating you can't stop ok so on a protein diet lots of protein it's not for building muscle it's more for being full and no food cravings and i'm not overeating because you're dieting so that's what i say for protein. no but i'm also eating a lot when you're eating over three thousand calories a day you're probably getting 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight just the math is simple but if you're on a diet and you eat 1200 calories 1 gram of protein per pound is going to be a lot of protein in your diet as a percentage that's not too mathematical for you improved will add a lot of calories like you're going from 3,000 calories to 5,000 and honestly some of them you can get away with to a great extent but if you try it as a natural you are only going to gain a lot of fat many naturals believe the opposite of what we are both seeing they are natural and they think i am natural the only way i can gain muscle is if i am in a great surplus I need so many calories and I'm natural so I'm going to eat a lot and I have people phone consoles all the time and they made that mistake they think they need to eat eat eat and they gain 50lbs and it's mostly fat probably 95 percent fat and it's unfortunate so if your natural don't think you need this huge surplus so well how many calories should you eat just enough to have energy and feel good if you have enough energy and you feel good then that is the amount you need if you are fatter than you want to be just slowly recover your body Reduce the weight to where you want it to be.
Don't think you need to bulk up and get fat just because it's natural. If he improves it, neither does Dean. You need 15% body fat for men, that's pretty healthy. if you're skinnier than that and hungry, well, why don't you go a little heavier? That won't hurt you, but if you already have 20 percent body fat, there's no reason to get fatter. I hope to build more muscle it's just won't help you one of the things about dieting when you're natural is that it's very easy to lose muscle so think about this logically if you get too fat think how hard you'll have to work to get fat off and you're already at risk of losing muscle because you're in a quart deficit for In the meantime, we totally agree 100 percent on this and I've been preaching this for years, if you bulk up you're going to have to dye it longer and when you diet, you will obviously be at a higher risk of Laurette. of losing muscle, especially if it's natural, so why bulk up if it's natural when you'll have to diet longer to lose weight, since when you're dieting that's the chance you'll lose muscle.
You're basically going to be fighting not to lose muscle on this extended diet, so if you have two people, they both have 10% body fat and want to get shredded. they get really fat and get all this muscle then they have to diet for 30 weeks to lose the fat compared to the guys in the 10% table who's going to go up to 12 go up to 12 don't really gain much weight but then then we have to dieting for a few weeks to get back on track - i can't escape who you think is going to be better off in the long run the guy who had to diet for 30 weeks on a deficit to try to get to where he was or the person who is at the 12 percent you don't have to die very hard so yeah sure it's easier when you're gaining and eating a lot of food and getting stronger and all that but then it's the opposite of easy as hard when you're doing diet so it rebounds so just from a health point of view why force your body to get fat? obese and all this stuff when you don't need it is not going to be beneficial for building muscle in the long run so these bulk sand cuts are stupid and john literally agrees with me on this where is the natural? you're not gaining strength so fast that you run that risk, so you can get away with a little more compound movements which, as you know, you've been tearing gears for a long time, you have to be very careful not to blow something up. when you're getting better you're getting too strong too fast there's so many PEC tears going on bi cep tear injuries etc and if you choose to go natural the chances of you sustaining a devastating injury like that are much less that if you were enhanced so well from being natural you know it's going to be harder to build muscle of course but you have less chance of getting injured and the muscle you build you can keep if you're enhanced hey that's your choice it's not that I didn't choose it, you have more dangers to overcome, the muscles will come faster, but you have a lot to deal with psychologically when you shut down and lose that muscle where your hormones and your health and the dangers of muscle tears are, etc. . subscribe and hit the bell button because you want to be notified so you can see it right away comment first comment fast and often do it watch more of these videos and i will upload a video here and one there greg doucet comm to train greg who she said i'm from instagram follow me and i'm about to eat french toast again number two because i've been up since 4:00 a.m. it's 7:00 something now and it's time to eat toh french toast again part two i'm out
