Here’s a surefire workout guaranteed to work out for game-day or just to test what you’ve got: 84/24 split. Back + Shoulders. Underhand pulldowns + military press – 8 sets increasing weight, 4 decreasing. Total 24 sets. The key is the rep-range. Re-defines the concept of heavy weight. #liftheavy #dontquit

This workout is just one example of how the Explode works, the X Fitness workout system.

Explode is not just s singular workout routine. It’s a limitless workout system. I’ve been working out for 42 years and have coached thousands of student-athletes. The system has been used to develop both men and women from scratch. That’s what makes the Explode system different. It can design workouts for rookie lifters and veteran lifters.

Lifting is a miracle-worker for both men and women. It’s key for fat loss and anti-aging. The only problem is the hard work. You have to pay for it. It won’t just happen and it won’t happen overnight. If you have kids, lifting is transformative physically and mentally. Lifting teaches hardcore commitment and dedication to exertion, fading concepts among young people addicted to their texting and Facebook. If you have kids and you’re concerned about their current or potential addiction to sedentary lives behind a laptop or cell phone, introduce them to lifting. I’ve witnessed student-athletes build themselves from unfit, weak, undisciplined, uncommitted lost causes to incredible athletes. The starting point was lifting in each case.

Never underestimated the power of lifting in the lives of young and old. Lifting is life-altering. But you have to change your mind first. – to be continued.
