The Mad Scientist Muscle Review - Will This Program Get You Real Results?
This is one of the programs that I have used quite extensively so I can really give a quality Mad Scientist Muscle review.
The program has some serious information inside of it, and without a doubt it is based on some solid scientific principles.
Before we get too far into this, let me tell you about Nick Nilsson, this is the guy who created this program.
Nick is a pretty smart cookie, when I first heard him talk he was doing a webinar about muscle building and the first thing I though was a guy who "spoke softly but carried a big stick" that big stick is his ability to really take muscle building to a totally unique level.
The concepts that he discussed are based on stuff that had previously been thought of mainly as some advanced bodybuilding techniques. But Nick has the ability to really break them down and discuss them in a very easy to understand way.
Anyways, lets get back to the Mad Scientist Muscle Review. Nick has put together a program that is based on something called controlled overtraining.
So What is Controlled Overtraining Exactly?
Basically it is a technique where you ramp up the sets you do while at the same time decrease the time between sets.
This is done in week long increments and after three weeks of this you will hit a point of "overtraining" where you basically go in reverse and then do fewer sets with more time in between. The best way I can explain it is to steal the line right from the program:
Think or a car going up a steep hill. You have your foot on the pedal and are really giving it the gas. You are however going slow still because of the incline (overtraining).
But as soon as you hit the apex of the hill... Zoom your car is going at speeds you never thought possible! This is your body having some major gains...
The second important aspect that I want to emphasize and bring up in the Mad Scientist Muscle Program is the section of structural training. The idea that you can actually make changes to your body to actually set the stages for future growth.
The Hardgainer Section
He sets the structural training portion of the program up in a cool way. He basically takes the periods between controlled overtraining and uses them for his structural training portion of the program. This fits the bill nicely!
My final thoughts for The Mad Scientist Muscle are that this is a complete program. It is actually the program that I would suggest people who are intermediate and looking to bust plateaus use. Also, the program that is great for building the foundation for hardgainers.
