VOLUME AND INTENSITY WORKLOAD

I AM A HIGH INTENSITY - HIGH VOLUME PERSON

I LOVE THEM BOTH. 

BUT YOU HAVE TO, THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR, FIND THE RIGHT DOSAGES OF EACH, IF YOU WISH TO WIN MAJOR BBING CHAMPIONSHIPS. 

INTENSITY IS MEASURED IN ANOTHER WAY ASIDE FROM IT’S APPLICATION TO AMOUNT OF REST BETWEEN SETS

IT ALSO CAN BE APPLIED TO THE AMOUNT OF REST BETWEEN WORKOUTS

JUST AS RESTING LONGER BETWEEN EACH SET ALLOWS YOU TO REGAIN MORE STRENGTH AND USE MORE WEIGHT ON FOLLOWING SETS IN YOUR WORKOUTS, RESTING LONGER BETWEEN WORKOUTS MAKE YOU STRONGER FOR EACH WORKOUT. 

TRAIN 3 DAYS A WEEK AND YOU’LL BE STRONGER THAN IF YOU TRAIN 3 DAYS IN A ROW BEFORE YOU TAKE A REST DAY. BUT YOU WON'T BECOME MORE MUSCULAR THIS WAY. 

VOLUME TRAINING REFERS TO FINISHING MORE SETS IN A WORKOUT. 

I’VE SPENT CONSIDERABLE TIME PRACTICING BOTH VOLUME AND INTENSITY. 

THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO USE MODERATION

TOO MUCH VOLUME OR TOO HIGH INTENSITY IS DETRIMENTAL TO YOUR HEALTH AND THE ABILITY TO BUILD MUSCLE AND BURN FAT.

AS I’VE AGED, MY MUSCLES ARE GROWING 

  • FROM 12 TO 14 SETS
    -- ON MY BIG MUSCLE GROUPS AND
    .
  • FROM 8 TO 10
    -- ON SMALL MUSCLE GROUPS
    .
    .




I FOCUS ON SLOWER NEGATIVES --
GOT TO KEEP MIKE MENTZER ALIVE ...

THE MUSCLES DON’T WORK VERY MUCH DURING A FAST NEGATIVE. 

I BEGAN THIS YEAR DOING SLOWER NEGATIVES WITH LIGHTER WEIGHTS WITH STRICTER FORM

THE MUSCLES DON’T KNOW THE ABSOLUTE WEIGHT YOU ARE USING, THEY ONLY KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE

SLOWER NEGATIVES
MADE LIGHTER WEIGHTS
FEEL HEAVIER

MY WORKOUTS BECAME EMPOWERING AND EFFECTIVE DOING FEWER SETS. 




MUSCLE GREW


ANYTHING IN LIFE THAT WE DON’T ACCEPT 
WILL SIMPLY MAKE TROUBLE FOR US 
UNTIL WE MAKE PEACE WITH IT

Robby, you are the guru!

And thank you for keeping Mike Mentzer alive!

You are truly a master and gentleman.

Much respect

After working with you in the Masters Class, I learned to get my ego out of the way. I dropped the weight I was working with on my exercises by about 15%; but I put much more emphasis on good form, slow controlled reps all the while squeezing the muscle...putting my mind in the muscle I am working.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

FJ-DR.G- THE BEGINNING OF A NEW PHYSIQUE TAKES PLACE. THINGS WILL CHANGE AS YOU ADAPT THE MUSCLES TO SOMETHING NEW. M.M GOT EVERYONE STARTED ON HIS HEAVY DUTY SYSTEM. DOING SLOW /CONTROLLED REPS. IT HAS IT'S IN BODYBUILDING HISTORY.

Robby the training routine is improving since speaking with you a few weeks ago. And I have been working on intensity with more reps compared to always wanting to push the heavy stuff. Also diet is going great as well.

Thanks for the great advice.

Hi Robby,

Am a Hitter myself and have been for 17 years, its nice to see you bring up Mikes methods,but with all due respect sir, i don't use steroids and i am not a genetic freak. As a natural trainee that works long hours i don't have the time nor the energy to train more than twice a week. I tried a slightly higher volume/frequency approach in the past, however i become over-trained very quickly and actually lost muscle.
IMO, Mikes biggest contribution to exercise was a bio-logical fact, which is the bigger/stronger you become, the more time you need to recover. Ive certainly found this to be true.

I love what Dr. C. has learned from Robby, it is not the weight but the form. Most people judge their development by the weight they use. As a former gym owner the most common mistake made by people was too much weight, poor form. "Weight is what made the wagon break".

I have known all the great bodybuilders through the years. People like Sergio were genetic freaks, with great egos. When Arnold won the Olympia over Sergio he beat him because he was smarter, outworked him, and let Sergio's ego beat him. Robby, I have known of since 1972, yes he showed the promise of being great, but he also worked HARD. He still does, and it shows in his great physique. Robby, your advice to people is learned through your trial and error, listen to him/

Robby, that's beautifully put. At almost 60 myself, I can't slam the plates like I used to, but I don't NEED to. As you say, slower reps + more mind/muscle connection + greater contraction = more muscle.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

JIM, VERY FEW CONCENTRATED ON THE REAL PRINCIPLES OF BBING. TODAYS BBERS SLAM AND DROP ARE THROW WEIGHT AROUND. I AM AMAZED SO MANY TRAIN THE SAME WAY. WRONG.
SLOW AND STEADY
WITH FOCUS ON CONTRACT AND THE NEGATIVE. THAT IS WHAT BODYBUILDING IS ALL ABOUT.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

FJ, MIKE WAS A WARRIOR. HE MUST BE KEPT ALIVE.THANKS FOR YOUR KIND WORDS.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

ANONYMOUS- I TELL IT LIKE IT IS .NO DISRESPECT TO ANYONE. IF YOU PRACTICE ALL THE PARTS OF THE PLAN CONSISTENTLY POSITIVE THINGS HAPPEN. HAVE A GREAT DAY.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

SIRLOIN-I ALWAYS HAVE USE THE NEGATIVE AS AWAY TO DEVELOP MORE MUSCLE FIBERS.THE NEGATIVE FOR SURE CREATES MORE MUSCLE DENSITY BUILD STRENGTH. MIKE HAD HUGE EFFECT ON HOW WE TRAIN A MUSCLE GROUP.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

DR,C , IT'S ALWAYS MY GOAL TO INFORM THE PERSON I WORK WITH. THE IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE FORM BODY POSITION AND TECHNIQUE. ONCE YOU GET THE PIECES DOWN. BUILDING A AWESOME PHYSIQUE COME A MORE NATURAL -FLOW..

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

DR ,STAN HOPE YOU ARE DOING WELL THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENERGY. THANKS FOR HELPING ME SPREAD THE WORD. YOU ATE APPRECIATED MY FRIEND.

ROBBY ROBINSON said...

JIM. YOU HIT IT DEAD ON THE HEAD. MAKING CHANGES IS VERY IMPORTANT. YOU GOT THE MESSAGE. YOU WILL ALWAYS IMPROVE BECAUSE OF THAT DECISION.
