After ten years of working out regularly and seeing less than satisfactory results, I spent three and a half years devoting little time to fitness and put on fifty pounds of fat. I had tried spending two hours a day in the gym, several different diets, and countless supplements that promised to help me reach my muscle building goals. After seeing the testimonials paired with the 90 day money back guarantee, I decided that I had nothing to lose and purchased the system. I lost a half of an inch of off my waist after just the first week! I achieved better results in 9 weeks than what I had achieved over the past year of working out and dieting. It is awesome to see how so many people are amazed at the results. Just look at the definition in my abs and obliques! What is also incredible is that I have gained over 10 pounds of muscle mass to go along with the 13% decrease in body fat. This system is the real deal and I can't recommend purchasing it enough. The price of this program is a bargain to achieve the kind of life changing results that you will undoubtedly see if you follow the system as it is described. Thank you for all of your assistance throughout the past months Francesco; I couldn't have transformed my body without your help.
Hi, I just recently joined a gym Thursday and I went and got a personal trainer.
When I started my workout we basically focused on my biceps
and triceps. Friday morning I woke up in a serious amount of soarness in my arms to the point where I could not bend my arms nore do any of my daily activities. I had been taking ibuprofen for the extreme soarness. It is now Sunday and I can feel some soarness giving up but my arms are still killing me. I don't think I tore anything, I just believe I'm soar. What are your suggestions on what I should do?
The efficiency of human muscle has been measured (in the context of rowing and cycling ) at 18% to 26%. The efficiency is defined as the ratio of mechanical work output to the total metabolic cost, as can be calculated from oxygen consumption. This low efficiency is the result of about 40% efficiency of generating ATP from food energy , losses in converting energy from ATP into mechanical work inside the muscle, and mechanical losses inside the body. The latter two losses are dependent on the type of exercise and the type of muscle fibers being used (fast-twitch or slow-twitch). For an overall efficiency of 20 percent, one watt of mechanical power is equivalent to kcal per hour. For example, one manufacturer of rowing equipment calibrates its rowing ergometer to count burned calories as equal to four times the actual mechanical work, plus 300 kcal per hour,  this amounts to about 20 percent efficiency at 250 watts of mechanical output. The mechanical energy output of a cyclic contraction can depend upon many factors, including activation timing, muscle strain trajectory, and rates of force rise & decay. These can be synthesized experimentally using work loop analysis .
