Yesterday we talked aoubut a method called Anabolic Stretching, that olympic gymnasts use to get their jaw dropping physiques, combined with superhuman strength, size, and flexibility.
It is the perfect compliment to your kettlebell workouts, to help you get better and faster results.
Well today, I wanted to follow up with some details on what Anabolic Stretching actually IS.
Now I will say – if you truly want to try this method and benefit the most from it, I recommend you pick up a copy of the full program, here …
But in a nutshell, the idea is to hold a moderate weight in the fully stretched position of an exercise for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds.
So you would lower the weight, slowly, until you reach a position where the target muscle is stretched.
When you reach that position, hold it. Fatigue will cause a deeper stretch.
Aim for a total time of 3-5 minutes, broken into sets of 30-60 seconds each, under load.
Here is example of the Anabolic Stretching method, done for the muscles in the back:
– stretch = Hang From Pull Up Bar Wide Grip (Weighted Optional)
– hold = 30-60s
– rest = 30-60s
– sets = 3-5
Now again, this is a very simple example. The full program gives you detailed backgroud on the method, the science behind it, beginner, intermediate, and advanced protcols for each body part, and lots of bonus materials.
