50 Cent: Guys Look Up To Him And Wish They Could Get A Physique Like That. Before I take on any client I have them see a medical doctor and dietician, to perform a complete medical physical and blood screening. This evaluation enables us to construct the most efficient program design, while also allowing for the client to run at optimum performance levels. After the medical evaluation is provided and blood results are in, an individual supplementation regimen is developed to create proper support of the client's physiological make-up. With high stressed clients, e.g., performance artists, the medical doctor will pay special attention to the adrenal and thyroid glands, which appear to take much of the abuse.

HIT Training Program


Developing a ripped hard body is very difficult because of the demands of touring and performance. So, creating the most scientific and individually based functional program is imperative. HIT Training - AKA - 40 Minutes of H*ll - is designed to replicate an Onstage Performance. Let's face with it, with a h-llish touring and appearance schedule the artist needs an intense and short routine that will allow for proper muscle growth/recovery and consistency.

While each method of training has its own following there also those that use both. In this article I will talk about methods that will help all the followers of HIT and Volume plus those in between. Author: Par Deus

The 40 Minutes Of H*ll Incorporates Scientifically Proven Exercises.

Training Schedule:
The artist trains much like that of an athlete, with set macro-cycles (which usually is set from the starting date to the end of his/her tour schedule - and is divided into several 3 to 4 week micro-cycles. Short micro-cycles are set up in order to avoid plateau and burnout). Due to the demands of touring, the artist's weekly training schedule changes from week to week. Although, he/she will usually train 5 to 6 days a week, with periods (especially in the beginning of the program) of two to three times a day training. On these days, Yoga and Pilates are introduced. RELATED ARTICLE What Is The Best Pilates Workout?
Pilates is one of the most popular workouts around today and is used by people around the world. Get details on some great workouts and exercises right here. [ Click here to learn more. ]

Also, it is imperative to mention that all workouts are kept to less than 45 minutes - with all weight training workouts being followed by a 15-minute ice bath or whirlpool.

Exercise Prescription:
Each program is specifically designed according to the Artist's needs, but all generally follow a multi-joint strength training routine - e.g. cleans to press.

Rest Periods:
The program provides minimal rest periods (which range from 45-60 seconds), which allow for a direct increase in the release of adrenaline and growth hormone that promote fat loss.

Dynamic Warm-up And Cool-Down


The artist will begin and end each weight training program by choosing a series of 7 to 10 athletic drills. The dynamic warm-up, unlike the cool-down is performed at a higher intensity with each exercise done 2 to 3 times.
