Have you stalled out? Not making the kind of gains you want? You might be surprised by what's holding you back. The #1 enemy of massive muscle gain and crazy strength isn't diet. And it's not your training program. It's injury!
If you can't train, you can't grow. Simple as that.
But wait, it gets worse. Even tiny little aches and pains will short circuit your progress. Hell, you don't even have to FEEL the pain for it to ruin your chances of packing on serious mass.
Yeah, sure. You can "suck it up". But being tough isn't the point. That's easy. Training smart is a lot harder.
Here's the problem with pain…
Even an "under-the-radar" pain sends a signal to your brain telling it to dial down the intensity of your muscle contractions. That's your body's way of protecting you from further injury. And because it's hard-wired, it's the death warrant for your muscle and strength gains.
Muscle imbalances, bad posture and undetectable micro-injuries can all trigger this neurological knee-jerk reaction that sabotages your gains. If you want to kick your growth back up into high gear, you're gonna have to do some damage control. And that means mobility and flexibility training.
Yeah, I hate stretching too… It's long. It's boring. And it gets in the way of your "real" training time... right? Okay, that's how it feels sometimes. But it doesn't have to be this way…
Doing just a few minutes of mobility and flexibility before and after your regular workout really adds up, and it'll soon have you pushing more weight and growing more muscle. The trick is to select only the BEST stretching methods and match them strategically to your workouts.
If you're like me, you don't have the patience to run through a boring full-body mobility and flexibility session every day. I mean, who has 20-30 extra minutes? Not me…
But I do have a few extra minutes before and after my regular workout. And that's all it takes to kick off shocking new muscle growth and strength increases. I know, it sounds strange. But here's why it works…
Yeah, "stretching" will actually INCREASE your strength over the long haul. Ever heard of antagonist muscles? They're the ones that work against the movement you're trying to perform. If your antagonists are tight—in a constantly contracted state—they'll reduce the strength of your agonist muscle (the one that's supposed to be working).
That's why guys who train too much bench have such shitty pull ups. Their chest is actually fighting against their lats during the movement. So the first thing is to keep your programs balanced, that goes without saying.
But if you want to get even stronger, include flexibility and mobility training. It balances your posture by "evening out" the way your brain communicates with your muscles, so they're all receiving the "right" signal. That way, they aren't competing against each other when you lift.
But that's not all…
Your body loves to stay in its comfort zone. So it tricks you into using the mid-range of motion, where your muscles are strongest. But it's by working in the extreme ranges—where the muscle is fully stretched and fully contracted—that you generate the most growth.
Yeah, you probably think you look cool because you're stacking on more plates. Well, enjoy it now, cause it's not gonna last…
The problem is, your nervous system starts to "forget" how to access and control those extreme ranges. You even risk injury when trying to use them. But proper flexibility and mobility training helps you reclaim control over the extreme ranges of motion—and THAT opens new doors to growth.
Be careful though. If you don't do it right, you're screwed…
Do NOT “stretch" before you train. Do dynamic mobility drills instead. Stretching before your workout has actually been proven to reduce strength and power output. So leave that for when you're done.
Before your workout, concentrate on dynamic movements that prep your muscles for the exercises to come. It increases blood flow, jacks up your nervous system and lubricates your joints. And that means you'll lift heavier, harder and more intensely. Nice…!
So how do I figure out what specific exercises to use before and after I train? I've gotta admit it was a bit of a crapshoot—if I even bothered to do it at all. But when I ignored it my body started to get more and more fucked up, and I realized I needed help.
I tried a bunch of stuff, but nothing clicked. And then I bumped into a friend from my coaching days, Kris Fondran. We were presenting at the same seminar in Singapore, and she told me about her experiences with yoga.
Don't panic…! It's not what you think. There's no chanting, no fruity yoga pants and no finding your “chakras". The stuff she showed me was just flexibility and mobility exercises ANY guy can do (…without looking dumb in the gym).
I don't mind admitting it kicked my ass. I had no idea I was that far gone.
My friend Kris has a Master's Degree in Exercise Science. When she caught the “yoga bug", she dedicated her Master's thesis to a study of its physical benefits.
Okay, when she first started telling me about it my eyes glazed over. I always thought yoga was for fruitcakes. But the more she talked, the more I tuned in. The stuff she was telling me was really exciting. It was exactly what I was looking for.
Kris takes the "ancient" practices of yoga—which are a lot more interesting than boring old "gym class" stretching—and filters it through her knowledge of exercise science. So yeah, I gave it a try. It worked, it's fun, and it doesn't take me hours a day to stick to!
I've been using Kris's stuff for a few years now. And it really turned my training around. I'm not an "injury waiting to happen" anymore. I don't have to deal with the aching shoulder that used to stop me from benching. I can fire on all cylinders in the gym. And I'm a hell of a lot bigger and stronger because of it.
I still can't believe more guys aren't using this. Last time I saw Kris, we talked about how we could make it so much easier for gym rats who hate yoga to get the benefits I experienced. And that's when we came up with our "yoga menu" approach.
I didn't have time to do a full routine every day. So Kris worked with me to create a "menu" of exercises I could use before and after every workout, depending on which body parts I was training.
I got the same great results, but I didn't have to mess up my schedule. This new approach fit right into my weight training program!
Now that's what I call training smart!
I was able to get all the benefits in half the time because of the way we strategically targeted certain poses or movements according to what I'd be training in that session.
That means no wasted time, better performance at the gym, and no more aches and pains. Heck, I even started noticing that I was growing faster AFTER my workouts. And I think this is why…
I want to talk to you about something a bit geeky. But only for a second…
What do you know about the role of inflammation in muscle gain? You probably think it's bad, right? Well it is and it isn't…
Chronic and systemic inflammation is very bad. This kind of inflammation is generalized throughout your body and you carry it around with you all the time. You definitely want to avoid that one. But acute inflammation triggered by a kickass workout is something else. It's actually a powerful growth signal for your body!
The problem is, if your body's always in a state of inflammation—chronic inflammation — it can't "hear" the acute signal from your training. And so it doesn't respond. But I've got good news…
A 2008 study from Georgia State University showed that yoga had a positive effect on markers of inflammation. The study was done on heart patients, but the findings are important for us too. Study participants showed a decrease in both IL-6 and C-reactive protein—powerful indicators of systemic inflammation.
Here's the translation: yoga inspired exercises can help you turn down the volume on chronic and systemic inflammation, so your body can hear the potent growth signal of post workout inflammation!
So yoga makes you grow faster and lets you push more weight. Jeez, what else could you ask for?
Well, there's another cool "fringe benefit" of including yoga in your training. Researchers at the Department Of Exercise Science And Sports Studies in Massachusetts found that yoga actually reduces Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
DOMS is that nasty muscle soreness you get one or two days after your workout. And I think we can all live without it…
"Everyone knows they need to stretch, but why does no one do it? Yes, it's boring… but I believe it's also because, until now, no one teaches how to choose the right exercises, the correct sequence, and the optimal duration. Yoga For Bodybuilders is, perhaps, the most important resource for any beginner or advanced bodybuilder to own. Their step-by-step course makes streching easy and thoughtless and allows you to stretch for more muscle (no pun intended!) and the best part is that they teach you EXACTLY what exercises to do depending on the bodypart you're training. I wish I had this course ten years ago! Their course literally helps you create "more room" for your muscles to grow and this might be the number one limiting factor preventing you from growing bigger. Improving your flexiblity even by a few centimeters can make tremendous differences in your symmetry, posture, strength and performance and how you feel. Say goodbye to tight shoulders and a sore lower back! This is a resource I insist ALL my clients add to their bodybuilding regime!"—Vince Del Monte
Okay, like I said, the key here is to do "mobility" based movements before you lift. That means you're moving the joints and not really holding any "static" positions. After your workout, add in "flexibility" based exercises. These go deeper into your extreme ranges of motion, and they generally involve holding static positions longer.
So the specific exercises are important. And it takes a bit of effort to figure it out. But if you want a "done for you" menu of exactly what to do when, you can check out the program below…

P.P.S. If you still have a question, there's a good chance someone else already asked it. And I've asked Kris to answer some of the most commonly asked questions below…
Q: How will this program help me build more muscle?
By fixing those muscle imbalances that sabotage your strength, by releasing the tension in the antagonist muscles so the agonist can do more work, and by giving you access to the extreme ranges of motion—the fully extended and fully contracted range where muscle growth really takes off.
Want more? Cause that's just the start… Yoga for Bodybuilding will help release the tension you put into your muscles in your workout, so you recover from training faster. That's important because it means a lot less post-workout soreness. And faster recovery means you're back in the gym sooner. Oh, and did we mention injury prevention? There's prehab built in too.
Q: Who is Yoga For Bodybuilding designed for?
Yoga for Bodybuilding is for guys who want to take their strength and muscle gains to new levels. It's for guys who want faster recovery, flexibility and injury-proofing (remember: injuries mean time off and a long slow return to the gym) but who HATE stretching and warm ups. And it's for guys who are sick of sore backs, bum shoulders and aching elbows.
After a month on Yoga for Bodybuilding, the aches and pains you feel today could be a thing of the past. You may improve your sleep. And you could experience lower fatigue, tension, anxiety and mental disturbance. This program doesn't get in the way of your workout, because it only adds a few minutes to each session. We've taken the bullshit and boredom out of stretching.
Q: What if I'm not a "young buck" — will this work if I'm considerably older?
Of course! The movements and postures included in Yoga for Bodybuilding will help you develop flexibility safely over time. In fact, you may benefit MORE than the average gym rat. You'll increase your pain-free range of motion and functional movement with the innovative mobility and flexibility exercises in the program. You'll also improve your balance and coordination, the loss of which has been shown to accelerate aging.
Here's the key. With stretching, as with any workout, you've gotta learn to tell the difference between "hurts so good" and "just plain hurts". If something doesn't feel right, stop doing it immediately. There's probably a modified or alternate posture that'll stretch the same muscle group. And if there isn't one in the program, send an email to our help desk and we'll create one for you.
Q: I'm still young. Do I really need to worry about this mobility and flexibility?
Better start now, cause if you're playing the iron game you're gonna stiffen up. Your gains will slow down, you'll start experiencing injuries, and you'll be so damned tight you won't be able to scratch your own back. The dumb thing is, it doesn't have to be that way. You can get huge and still have the flexibility of a UFC fighter. And it doesn't take much work if you stick to the Yoga for Bodybuilding plan. Starting young is a hell of a lot easier than fixing the damage after its done.
Q: I've never stretched and I'm wondering if I should try this program?
You should definitely try it. Yoga for Bodybuilding starts slow and moves at your own pace. Stretching should feel good, and this program promotes gradual flexibility that's fun, challenging and injury free. I know you'll be as amazed as I was the first time I gave it a try.
Q: How did you discover the use of yoga for bodybuilding?
I've lifted heavy for years. But I ignored stretching, and my body got more and more fucked up, until I realized I needed help. I tried a bunch of stuff, but nothing worked. It was either too boring to stick to, it took to long, or it was simply ineffective.
And then I bumped into a friend from my coaching days, Kris Fondran. We were presenting at the same seminar in Singapore, and she told me about her experiences with yoga. Okay, I always thought yoga was lame — and more than a little effeminate. But the more she talked, the more I listened. I've been using her stuff for a few years now, and it completely turned my training around. These days, I don't have to deal with the aching shoulder that used to stop me from benching. I can fire on all cylinders in the gym. And I'm a hell of a lot bigger and stronger because of it.
Q: Are there any downsides to Yoga For Bodybuilding?
If you're looking for hazy New Age nonsense, chanting or inner peace, then this program isn't for you. Yoga for Bodybuilding is for guys who want a no bullshit approach to stretching that doesn't take much time, that gets results, and that helps them perform in the gym. Light your incense somewhere else—we're training in here!
Q: Is Yoga For Bodybuilding downloadable or shipped to my house?
The entire program is immediately available to you via download after your purchase—there's no shipping fees and no waiting for results! You can access, view and use the program through our innovative online portal AND you can download and print the manuals and burn the videos to DVD.
Q: What if the program doesn't work for me?
Then It's ALL FREE.

I stand behind the product we put together with Kris and the powerful results you'll achieve, but if for some strange reason it doesn't get those results for you when followed, you get your money back. No hassles, no hoops to jump through, just a prompt, courteous refund.
