You’re accessing a private and time sensitive offer to join a permanent coaching group and help shape the final Myomutant resource – a combination of Olympic weightlifting methods, gymnastics training methods, and acrobatics/tricking training.
Please take the next five minutes to read what you have the chance to get your hands into.
The following philosophy…
- Is NOT for minimalist
- Is NOT for slackers
- Is NOT for people that don’t enjoy training
- Is NOT for those looking for an eight week solution
- Is NOT for beginners — you should know how to squat, press, and pull from the floor
If you’re looking for a long term strategy and structure to learn the ins and outs of the body as it relates to lifting heavy slabs of iron, controlling your body through space in both a muscular and explosive way, and becoming a superior organism that doesn’t play by the “popular” rules of recovery and adaptation, you need to stick around. Just so you know you aren’t going to waste your time, I’m going to make two promises to you.
The first promise is that, by the time you’re done reading this short page (how about the next five paragraphs?), you’re going to learn the anecdotal proven process to truly build muscle.
The second promise is that, by the time you’re done reading this short page, you’re going to learn why said anecdotal proven process to truly build muscle probably isn’t all that useful to you.
The anecdotal proven process to muscle gain
The “secret” formula for muscle building is doing compound free weight exercises and eating enough food to grow. That’s it. ‘Sthat simple. Most guys are told they just need to squat, deadlift, bench press, and drink a gallon of whole milk every day. Do that, and you’d be hard pressed to stay the same weight.
Beyond the fact that you’ll turn into a fat slob with this formula, there’s a second dangerous consequence: Not everyone that trains with “heavy compound free weight exercises” ends up in the same spot.
This realization turned my entire training philosophy around.
Why it’s more than “compound movements”
Bodybuilders, powerlifters, and Olympic weightlifters all train with the barbell in a similar way. They all use heavy compound movements, yet they all funnel to a different end. Let’s not forget that other athletes like gymnasts — some of which never touch a barbell — gain quality muscle aren’t aren’t exactly athletic chumps.
(For my money, gymnasts are the most athletically capable humans.)
So let me ask you a question: If you could look like an Olympic weightlifter or, say, Ronnie Coleman, which would you pick?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve never wanted to become a bulge of bodybuilder brisket. I grew up as a trickster (freestyle acrobat) and fell in love with being able to move freely. I always wanted my physique to compliment my ability to move, hop, jump, twist, and lose all forms of consciousness as I mutated in the air.
But I followed the anecdotal proven path to muscle and became a slave to the barbell. It was hard to do much of anything, performance wise, when one of the most fabled rules in the barbell land is that you have to rest 48 hours after a hard training session.
I didn’t want to give up strength training. I didn’t want to give up tricking. I wanted to become a fast twitch, strength, power, and explosive machine that could teeter the chaotic boundaries of balance, kinesthetic awareness, coordination, spatial-temporal awareness, and consciousness…and I wanted to be able to whatever, whenever. I wanted to defy the normal bounds of training, rest, and recovery.
But I was always routed back to the anecdotal muscle maze — the one that touted the importance of recovery, being narrow focused, and splitting the body into parts. Training arms while legs rested. Training the upper body while the lower body rested. Things like that because I thought that everyone that used the barbell played by the same rules.
The moment that changed EVERYTHING
I told myself this story for a long time until I realized…
Olympic weightlifters and gymnasts didn’t play by these rules.
Where bodybuilders and powerlifters paid homage to recovery and usually split the body into parts, Olympic weightlifters and gymnasts trained with a more holistic view of the body.
Both trained at a high frequency. Both trained their entire body every day. Both had athleticism, grace, and finesse…that neither bodybuilders or powerlifters had!
I picked apart both of these athletes. They had everything I wanted. They were fast twitch, strength, power, and explosive machine that could teeter the chaotic boundaries of balance, kinesthetic awareness, coordination, spatial-temporal awareness, and consciousness…and they didn’t melt like the Wicked Witch from ignoring traditional recovery windows!
I had my answer.
Why combining Olympic weightlifting methods and gymnastics is uniquely powerful
After a long dissection, I ended up…
- Stealing the best barbell aspects of Olympic weightlifting (you don’t have to do the competition lifts!)
- Stealing the best bodyweight training aspects of gymnastics (static holds, acrobatics, good exercises)
- Stealing both of their ideals on training, recovery (essentially…none)
- Stealing their ideas on finesse and acrobatic movement (both of them focus on grace in training)
See, it’s more than “heavy compound free weight movements” because…
Neurons that fire together, wire together
When we treat the body like a segmented pile of slop, it becomes a segmented pile of slop. We are holistic organisms. Neither Olympic weightlifters or gymnasts see their body as a collection of segments — they see their body as a cohesive unit.
There are a lot of things that make both of these athletes special (there’s a reason you’d rather have their body than one of a bodybuilder, for instance), all of which are explained in my Myomutant resource. I’ll share just one of these unique relationships with you right now…
Did you know…?
That Chinese Olympic weightlifters start out by training gymnastics at a young age? Did you know that, even as they progress as Olympic weightlifters, they place a huge emphasis on grace and finesse?
Their bodies look and perform athletically for reason — they consciously make it happen! They look and perform athletically because their training requires a unique kind of complex coordination intertwined with meaningful muscular contractions. So much for the, “it’s all about compound exercises” theory.
With this kind of training, you teach the body how express strength and power in coordinated movement. Neurons that fire together wire together. Remember that. What happens with both of these athletes (that is lacking in every other domain) is meaningful muscular work combined with mentally challenging graceful tasks. When combined, this has the potential to effect the brain like any other kind of training (ever hear of plasticity?).
It also means that the entire body grows in proportion. It doesn’t look segmented or pieced together. It looks…cohesive and capable.
What Myomutant is all about
Examining both of these unique athletes led to a bunch of different observations — heuristics, as I call them. I put them together and created a grand resource for a non-professional to dive into. I formed a new kind of training.
More than a program.
And what do I mean by non-professional?
I mean someone that doesn’t want to specialize in the stuff. I don’t want to become a gymnast or an Olympic weightlifter. I only want to suck their most useful concepts and apply them to my own athletic desires.
And that’s what I did.
Now, I want to make this resource as best as possible, which is why you’re here. You opted in for this chance, and I filtered you for a reason. I want only the best, most dedicated people in on this. See, I have all of the information down, but I need different opinions to helps finalize everything to make sure I have all of the angles covered.
You’re among one of the hand selected few that have been asked to help me make this tighter, better, and something I’m proud of putting my name on. Let me tell you about what’s inside and what you need to know:
- The program is a mixture of barbell and bodyweight exercises
- You do not need to do the Olympic lifts, nor will you be asked to learn them — we steal the friendliest exercises from Olympic weightlifting given our goals
- You do not need gymnastics rings, although they are heavily recommended
- I’m still in the process of updating the resource (hence the beta tag) with videos
- You will get every updated revision, so don’t worry about the beta tag
Here’s what’s inside:
- The main Myomutant philosophy and program(s) — setting up the combination of barbell and bodyweight training and explaining the principles extrapolated from Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics
- The Myomutant Enraged philosophy and program(s) — programming schemes for those that “outgrow” the primary template from both a barbell strength and gymnastics skills standpoint
- The Myomutant Warm-up and Cool Down – how to turn your warm-up and cool down into muscle building training to save time, and why keeping a long drawn out warm-up is a mistake and an embarrassment to physiology
- The Myomutant Barbell Exercise Descriptions – my tips and tricks for the exercises introduced
- The Myomutant Gymnastics Exercise Descriptions – my tips and tricks for the exercises introduced
Now that’s the meat of the program, but I also want to give you one more (potentially two more) things…
- The Myomutant Acrobatics Entry – tutorials for basic acrobatic maneuvers (front rolls of all sorts, back rolls of all sorts, kip-ups, cartwheels and roundoffs [one handed, too], kip-ups, and the macacco)
And if you don’t have experience with my base eight exercises in the front squat, conventional deadlift, overhead press, thirty degree incline press, strict barbell curl, barbell row, chin-up, and parallel bar dip, then we can talk about getting you squared away there too. But you should have experience with those before getting into the Myomutant life simply because this isn’t a beginner resource.
If you’re still ready to get involved, then I encourage you to make it happen by clicking the link below. You’re here for a reason. I want you here, and you want to be here.
As usual, this is an instant download. You get immediate access to PDF packet, each of which can be be read with popular PDF readers. You also need some kind of unzipping software. If you’re buying on a mobile device, we can work around the .zip reality with some personal care. An email is all we need to get you squared away, and that’s easy peasy.
As a member of this group, you are expected to track your progress, take pictures, and be involved in the community of people that join this beta group. You must have Facebook in order to have access to the community, however, you can purchase and opt out of the community if you don’t want the coaching. Alternatively, you can create an account with a pen name to protect your identity. This is a private group, and no one will see you post save for those inside.
To get a further glimpse of the kind of skills you are going to be using…
- Presses of all sorts (overhead, inclines, push presses)
- Back squats and front squats
- Pulls from the floor (Olympic style, high pull, panda pull, low pull)
- Rows (barbell, snatch grip, pendlay)
- Gymnastics skills (beginning planche and lever variations)
This means you should be able to squat and deadlift at least your body weight. You should be able to do at least ten consecutive chin-ups and dips too.
If you can pardon the dust, then I invite you to join me one last time. I’m still in the process of adding videos and extra resources. It’s only going to get better and this is the lowest price you’re going to see for a combination of coaching and materials (and there are a bunch of them).
I’m human, just like you. You aren’t dealing with a robot. If you have any questions, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
