You guys need to do this plan. It’s guaranteed to get your attention. Plus, I have an advanced version of the workout that’s on another level.

Good morning Dr. Darden,
Great article- NExT for arms! Could you provide suggestion for a Delt plan? And if one wanted to put extra size on their chest circumference, would they do a chest/lat compound?
Thank you!

We should combine whole body training with negative techniques … I follow a whole body training (2 times / week) based only on negative repetitions (10 sec.) In which each group is worked through a basic exercise. Could we improve this type of training to be more effective?

Delts are on the horizon. I’m working on other body parts now. Be patient.

I’m pretty excited about it. I’m just finishing up a training phase so this will serve as a perfect test to see how I’ve progressed. And any time I get a chance to grow my arms, I’m definitely interested. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that arms are my favorite body part. Getting any extra growth in them is a big win to me. Short term challenges like this are a great way to keep me motivated.

I haven’t tried it with less calories than normal. Apply it under those conditions for 4 days and let me know?
