SHOW NOTES:

 

(1) WHERE TO FIND SKIP

Before I get into the show details. Here is where you’ll get Skip online. Follow him! His preferred place is facebook.

Skip’s Facebook | Skip’s main website | Skip on Twitter | Skip on Instagram

 

(2) BEING INSPIRED BY SKIP OVER A DECADE AGO

I start off by telling Skip that I first saw him on the cover of the AST magazine over 10 yrs ago in a supplement shop in my town. I took that magazine home, read it, and re-read it multiple times. His mindset, along with the Max-OT training principles really shaped my thinking early on.

(3) TAKING A SET TO ABSOLUTE FAILURE

I tell you guys all the time, that you can only maximize muscle fiber recruitment, metabolic stress, and muscle damage by taking a set to the last possible rep i.e. failure. I asked Skip for his thoughts as I saw him say this about what he calls “absolute failure”…

“Absolute failure basically means you don’t stop pumping-out repetitions during a particular set until all of your energy is used. In order to achieve absolute failure, you must keep on doing reps until your muscles literally fail, or feel like they’ve turned into a “wobbly pile of jelly…Absolute failure is an awesome feeling when training and one you should learn to enjoy. Training every set with this end goal in mind gives you that sense of satisfaction deep inside. Working every set until you simply can’t do any more reps gives you the confidence that you are using all of your energy to reach your ambitious bodybuilding goals.”

I personally train and recommend taking every set to “positive” failure – but there are times for absolute failure, too. To get my full workout at absolutely no cost, just click below.

(4) GOAL-SETTING & FINDING FULFILMENT IN LIFE

Both Skip and I have a huge interest in personal development and self-improvement. We discuss setting goals and achieving things in life.

Will having muscles and ripped abs really make us happy? If not, what should we do to find that ultimate fulfilment in life? Interesting stuff from a great mind here!

(5) WHAT IS THE BEST EXERCISE FOR EACH MUSCLE GROUP?

We finish off the podcast with me asking Skip for his favorite exercise for each body part. Starting from the delts/shoulders, and ending with the calves. Turns out Skip certainly prefers dumbbells over barbells.

You’ll notice all these exercises form part of my Targeted Hypertrophy Training program.

  • DELTS – Seated Dumbbell Overhead Press
  • BICEPS – Dumbbell Curls
  • TRICEPS – Cable Pushdowns
  • CHEST – Dumbbell Presses
  • ABS – Leg Lifts (with dumbbell between feet)
  • BACK – Bent Over Barbell Rows
  • LEGS OVERALL – Leg Presses (or whatever leg movement you can be passionate about)
  • CALVES – Seated Calf Raises
