Cybergenics used to be one of the top dogs back in the late 80's and early 90's. They were in the forefront of the supplement industry. Then in the mid 1990's the company was sold and they all but disappeared. Was it because of new innovations in supplements that they couldn't keep up with or was it because the new owners were poor business men?
I personally feel it is the latter since there are people that tell me that they made their best gains using those kits. Cybergenics was the first to take into account all factors of training, diet and supplements.
They had an intense, and I really mean intense, exercise program that gave some very formidable increases in strength, while building lean muscle mass and burning off body fat. The method they taught is very tough and a lot of hard work, but a friend of mine that busted through a couple of plateaus using the Cybergenics Phase 1 chest routine.
Cybergenics Phase 1 Chest Workout
Here is the workout he used. You'll need to know your one rep max to figure out what weight to use.
|One Rep Max Calculator
amount of weight you lifted and the number of reps you lifted it for (the
number of reps must be between 1 and 10 in order for the calculation to work).
Your One Rep Max will appear at the top and all your percentages will appear
When it says you should use 50% of your max weight, and your max is 100 pounds on the exercise, you would be using 50 pounds (100 times .5 = 50). If it is 35% of your max, you would use 35 pounds (100 times .35 = 35).
2 sets warm-up Bench Press at 35% of your one rep max for 15 - 18 reps.
Cycle #1C (Do Not Rest Between Exercises)
Cycle #2C (Do Not Rest Between Exercises)
Parallel Bar Dips - no weight added to positive failure.
Incline Bench Press - 70% max to positive and negative failure.
Rest then repeat cycle one more time.
Rest between cycles is only 1 minute, or as long as it takes your training
partner to complete his cycle.
If your chest growth is lagging, give this workout a try. Check out TrulyHuge.com for more information!
