  • Renaissance periodization

    Hey BBM Members!

    just want to hear what people’s general thoughts on dr mike Israetel’s teachings on hypertrophy is ?

    if one was to specifically concentrate on bodybuilding is it true to be training exercises as close to failure without actually failing ? And not worrying about specifically doing a comp bench, squat or deadlift but variations of those exercises ?

    this is for someone who has no strength interests but purely hypertrophy gainzzz but I know strength regardless of what you do is something that’s going to happen with whatever exercises you choose.

    If Barbell medicine where to bring out a specific bodybuilding template for someone with no powerlifting aspirations I wonder how it would look.

    Just want to see what you all think.

    kind regards !!!

    I would think the BBM hypertrophy templates were also meant for that purpose.

      I'm sure Mike is a great resource for bodybuilding. I bought their "male physique template" a long time ago and never really used it because it just wasn't really enjoyable for me. Too many different exercises and not much focus on adding weight, Adding sets and reps seems to be the main focus while only adding weight after multiple weeks which just doesn't feel good for me personally. I prefer the BBM hypertrophy because it doesn't tell you how much weight to add and when to add it. Plus the exercises all feel worthwhile and they have a good number of sets. instead of doing a ton of volume on stuff that feels like a waste of time. If someone wanted to compete in bodybuilding i'm sure the RP template would be a great choice but that's not my thing.

        Yeah I like Mike’s content even though I’m not massively into bodybuilding just wanted to see people’s thoughts on his methods.

          In general, Dr. Israetel's information/content is solid. However, it is not everyone's cup of tea because not everyone prefers to only add reps or sets. According to his philosophy, you would only be adding weight every 4-5 weeks.

          As for the programming, the exercise choices are not great. For example, they do not even list sumo deadlifts, conventional deadlifts, normal grip bench press, or strict pressing as options for the hypertrophy template... for the powerlifter. One would think exercises such as these would be front and center in a program sold to powerlifters, right?

          That said, I think that BBM's programs being centered around the big 4 is perfect for my goals, as is their selection of variations in the drop-down menus. BBM's programming is also meaningful in the sense that, whether its Hypertrophy II or Strengthlifting II, your skills with the main movements will improve greatly in addition to the physiological benefits.

            If you don't care about strength then PL specificity is not an issue, furthermore the PLs don't have an incredible stimulus:fatigue ratio. Jordan has talked about stimulus:fatigue ratios and I think that by following his logic you'd find that the PLs aren't the best choices for most people, for example: Leg Press>squat and RDL>DL. This isn't to say you can't successfully bodybuild with the PLs, just that most people will find that these 3 arbitrarily selected movements don't happen to be the most efficient exercises for building muscle.

            P.S. The recent RTS podcast w/ Mike Israetel is worth a listen. I found him pretty convincing, that modern periodization is at least a good starting point for most athletes.

              That is true.. whatever you were gonna do, even if your final purpose is not to gain strength you will gain it anyway.

                Well, I agree with you. When I wanted to lose weight and started to go to gym I gained muscles instead I was using sarms which helped me the first period of time, then my friend suggested me to try supplements like clomid which I've read about here https://www.theihcc.com/where-to-buy-clomid-online/ if you need it. Honestly, after reading the signals that you are suffering a drop in testosterone levels, I understood that I need to use it... these are some of them: decreased sperm count, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, mood swings, depression, low energy levels.
