  • ErgoGenix Quantum Body Method: Back & Triceps.

    By: Other Writer

    Episode #3 of the Quantum Body Method. Today starts with a pyramid superset of wide grip lat pulldowns and close grip reverse pulldowns, just the right formula to have your lats screaming for mercy. On to middle back with seated rows, Robert insists on perfect form for the best muscle stimulation including ending with partial reps and a quick superset with wide grip high rows. Middle back and rhomboids are singled out with bent flyes, while close grip pullups are utilized for a huge pump throughout. Finally it's hyperextensions to get that massive stretch in the muscle. With plans to attack all heads of the tricep, tried-and-true standard and reverse grip pushdowns are on the menu first. To end it's a straight set of overhead triceps extensions and then dips to failure.

  • ErgoGenix Quantum Body Method: Shoulders & Traps.

    By: Other Writer

    Episode #2 of the Quantum Body Method. This workout starts with a pre-exhaustion set of seated military presses, then Mike's challenged with a series of fast-paced pyramided sets on the Smith machine for perfect form. The second stage is a few light sets of behind the neck presses for additional delt development but avoiding injury. To hit all heads of the shoulders, supersetting front raises and side laterals with volume and intensity fits the bill. Reducing volume, front delts and traps are hit effectively with the upright row and superman combo. Traps and rear delts are then activated again with shrugs and bent flyes.
