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.
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
- at 35% of your one rep max for 15 - 18 reps.
Cycle #1C (Do Not Rest Between Exercises)
- - 80% max to positive failure (until you can't do another rep).
- - same weight as flyes to positive failure.
- - 50% max to positive and negative failure.
- Flyes - 40% max to positive failure.
- Dumbell Press - same weight as flyes to positive failure.
Rest then repeat cycle one or two more times.
Cycle #2C (Do Not Rest Between Exercises)
- - no weight added to positive failure.
- - 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.
