Something I noticed over my PE career; Every time I have gained it was after I added a new device or exercise.
Every time! It never resulted from increasing reps, time or weight. It was adding something new. And… along with that,
I saw my gains in the first 14 days of the new routine. After that, nothing.
So, when I did my last IPR routine I realize that, if you don’t have gains in the Phase I (first 2 weeks) there is no point
in going on to the 2 and 3 phases, since these are just healing and remodeling phases.
I think the body adapts very quickly to stress. Some guys much more quickly that others. I think there is a very fine balance
in the body’s response to force/stress - too much and the tissue goes into defense mode, too little and there is no inflammation.
I have always thought that this theory (*Tunica Differences) could explain hard vs easy gainers perfectly.
But, this is a very difficult thing to test on a living person without surgery or maybe a MRI.
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.
