New Muscle Pump Coaching

I apologize for the hijack, but I can’t help myself. I’m a quant geek. (Much of success is due to excellent pattern recognition.)

I believe Dr. Deming (a statistics professor) in the 1950s had a lot to do with Toyota implementing the first (I believe) JIT system. I enjoy reading his work.

WIKIPEDIA: Many in Japan credit Deming as one of the inspirations for what has become known as the Japanese post-war economic miracle of 1950 to 1960, when Japan rose from the ashes of war on the road to becoming the second-largest economy in the world through processes partially influenced by the ideas Deming taught:

  1. Better design of products to improve service
  2. Higher level of uniform product quality
  3. Improvement of product testing in the workplace and in research centers
  4. Greater sales through side [global] markets

I too am a student of Deming. As part of my employers corporate strategy team, I helped to introduce Deming’s 14 Points. I was privileged to be at one of Deming’s last conferences where he taught his Red Bead Experiment. I was also part of the Six Sigma initiative at my work. And am sort of a statistics geek, helping the managers work through their Green Belt projects. And taught corporately the basic statistics surrounding the Measure and Control phases of DMAIC.

IMO, JIT is adequate on critical processes only when supply side disruption is very rare (running at Six Sigma quality)


Seems you have a similar role to me, but who really came up with JIT, Shingo, Ohno or Deming? And don’t forget Shewhart! :smiley:

Completed workout 7 on Friday. I like doing biceps and triceps together with forearms. Another great workout. The gym was empty and I finished the workout in 26 minutes. The best thing about moving quickly is I am able to keep my heart rate up the entire time.

I was thinking maybe it would be better to do lats first then do arms. From all my previous readings and my time as a personal trainer at a Nautilus facility was that you hit the larger muscles first?

I read two of Deming’s books. I don’t recall him mentioning JIT. The closest mention to suppliers was him saying to use single suppliers for any specific item.

We moved to JIT when we went through an inventory reduction initiative to save on inventory costs. I was focusing on Six Sigma at that time. Another initiative team was implementing JIT.

But I believe most give Ohno credit for JIT.


  1. We’ve added Phases 3 and 4 to the program.

  2. Phase 4 includes the addition of the 30-10-30 Stimulate Method.

  3. Here’s pfit9 doing a set of 30-10-30 leg extensions:


Tim I have a vacation planned after the 4 weeks of the original challenge. I planned to take an easy week and hit some band work during that time. Is that okay and then resume phase 3 when I’m back?

Secondly, will we need to purchase our own Surge for phase 3 and 4?

Sure, an easy week is fine, then resume the plan.

We sent out another pouch of Surge WOF last week to all Surge Challenge members. We’ll let everyone know about the next supply later.


Perfect that’s what I’ll do. I’m really enjoying the challenge and honored to be a part of it. Thanks again!

Thanks for putting this program out there. It’s reinvigorating my desire to continue lifting and improving.


And that motivates us to do even more.

Workout 8 complete

Good to note that this style works well with bands too (I have the mountain dog set from eliteFTS)

Haha…if only ! But thank you. Definitely liking the stuff

Back at it today after a 4 day holiday break from lifting. But I was able to test the Surge Workout Fuel during a very, very active 4 day stretch of hiking, swimming, volleyball, a 5k and biking in continuous 100 degree heat. My family could not keep up. The daily Surge Workout Fuel kept me hydrated and energized, even though I was not conditioned to the heat coming into this weekend. Full disclaimer: I don’t drink alcohol, so did not have to fight the typical holiday late night drinking and hangovers. This product is legit (and I imagine it would be good for hangovers, as well)


Flutter after a 30-10-30?
What did we do to p1ss you off? :laughing:
I can’t imagine the pump.


I have a commitment on a Friday-Saturday-Sunday on the first weekend of August. Saturday is scheduled Workout #21.
My workout strategy has always been if I had to miss a specific workout for a commitment, I would just skip it and proceed with the next workout at its original scheduled date.

In the Surge Challenge what is recommended? Pickup on Workout #21 on Monday, or keep the scheduled Workout #22 on Monday?

The rationale for this would be because you always wanted squat or leg day (or whatever) to fall on a certain day of the week that gels with your other activities. For example, I don’t want to squat heavy and then have a soccer game later that day, but I have no problem doing a shoulder-heavy workout and playing soccer later.

For these workouts, I don’t see that as mattering at all. I can’t think of a reason to skip the workout and move on to keep your original schedule, unless you have another training block scheduled immediately after and need to wrap this up by a certain date.

Is the 30-10-30 stimulate to replace the original stimulate or is it in addition to?
