Hi Malcolm, I am preparing for the first Hypertrophy Matrix, There are some questions that i can not find in your ebooks.
1. Can you tell me where can i find total caloric for my phase. (I only can see in the Macrocyle 3's ebooks)
2. Should i get leaner to start the program (10% body fat or under)
Thank you very much.

The Faces of Success⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Myles Cheatum pictured here strengthening his shoulder stability with shorty bars. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
By utilizing oscillating kinetic energy through the instability of banded plates, he is challenging his shoulders with multi planar resistance profiles throughout the entire movement. This creates new stimuli for the musculoskeletal system to improve the stability of the shoulder when dealing with dynamic resistance—a common experience for an athlete. ⁠⁠

Tip # 3: Use Loaded Stretching to Rapidly Increase ROM in the Squat ⁠and Deadlift⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠When it comes to optimal performance and injury prevention muscles, tendons, and joints are only as strong as the range of motion they are trained in. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There are scenarios where tight muscle structures may be a limiting factor from allowing a trainee to achieve a full range of motion in an exercise. This is quite common to see, especially in motor patterns like the squat. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One solution we use to increase dynamic mobility of the stiff gastrocnemius and soleus muscles of the lower leg is loaded stretching. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Try these loaded stretches as a warm-up prior to your next squat session to rapidly increase your range of motion.⁠⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Standing Calf Raise Machine Loaded Stretch:⁠⠀
1. Select a load that does not allow you to perform the concentric motion of the lift⁠⠀
2. Set your foot position in a neutral shoulder width stance⁠⠀
3. Lower the weight into the stretched position ⁠⠀
4. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds, rest 60 ⁠⠀
seconds, repeat 2 more times⁠⠀
5. Move to a seated calf raise machine and repeat steps 1-4⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It is important to perform both stretches because the gastrocnemius is predominantly stretched when the knee is extended like in the standing position, while the soleus is predominantly stretched when the knee is flexed in the seated position. ⁠⠀

Stress, S*x & Belly Fat 02/13/2019

When it comes to stress and the hormones involved, there is a hierarchy of importance.

Since our physiological survival has relied on adapting to stress since the beginning of time, it still remains first priority.

The caveat is that humans are designed to have a natural stress, rest and adaptation cycle. We are not designed to be continuously stressed, which is experienced by 80% of Americans today.

This leads to a cascade of health related symptoms and issues such as infertility, depression, insomnia, digestive disorders, weight and fat gain, accelerated aging and so on.

Muscles, Structure and Function of the Rotator Cuff’s 02/07/2019

Injuries in sport are inevitable. In impact sports like American football, rugby, hockey, or MMA, injuries are even more pronounced.

While the level of strength an athlete possesses can determine the rate at which injuries occur and limit the severity of them, they are unpredictable and sometimes unavoidable even with the best training intentions.

The complex of muscles that have the important task of stabilizing the shoulder and keeping the head of the humerus secure against the glenoid fossa are known as the rotator cuff’s.

The 80/20 Principle Applied to Strength Training 01/12/2019

“The 80/20 Principle asserts that a minority of causes, inputs, or effort usually lead to a majority of the results, outputs, or rewards. Taken literally, for example, 80 percent of what you achieve in your job comes from 20 percent of the time spent. Thus for all practical purposes, four fifths of the effort—a dominant part of it—is largely irrelevant.”

The 80/20 Principle applied to strength training also holds true. From this viewpoint, 20% of the exercises you perform in the gym will produce 80% of the results. In my opinion and from years of practical experience, I have to agree.

Peaking the Discus Athlete 10/17/2018

I started working with Nathaniel Jordan-Moses in late 2014 to prepare him to make the 2016 USA Olympic team in discus.

We had 18 months dedicated to training and competition. Although he fell short in the trials placing 6th amongst America's best athletes he improved his throw from 61.81m to 64.49m reaching an all time personal best on day 1 in competition.

Here is a look at his final 12-week training block we used to help peak him for the Olympic trials in Oregon.

The Bliss Point: How The Food Industry Changed The Way We Eat 09/26/2018

What you put in your body directly influences the bacteria flora that resides in your gut. The bacteria inside you are living organisms. There are about 100 trillion bacteria in the average human–no two people in the world contain the same bacteria profile.

Scientists have begun calling these microbes your “second brain,” or “mini brain.” Bacteria work in the body as a symbiotic relationship, but without discipline the “mini-brain” in your gut can control your cravings more than you would like to.

You are fighting two brains to make a change. By increasing insulin sensitivity from a balanced diet, and by resisting the urges of your gut brain, your bacteria profile changes to grow accustomed to what you eat and your body demands less to satisfy insulin and hunger cravings. Your body then starts to demand the nutritional profile that you give it!

Why I’m Supplementing With H2 09/25/2018

Matthews 'skating at another level' for Maple Leafs, Babcock says 09/17/2018

Excited to hear and read about this article that was just released by nhl.com on Auston Matthews.

We kept all of our work together quiet and away from social media this summer. Auston wanted it that way, and quite frankly so did I. 100% work with no distractions.

"He's skating at another level," Babcock told the Maple Leafs website Sunday after they concluded three days of camp at Niagara Falls. "I think he's really in shape. He feels good about himself. He put in a lot of work this summer."

I am proud of all his hard work and dedication to getting better each day. He wants to be the best and I witnessed that first hand in his approach to our training, nutrition, and recovery.

3 Muscle Building Nutrients You Can’t Get From Plants 09/10/2018

Nutrition is a pivotal component in creating a bigger, faster, stronger athlete and as such, one of my three foundations for success with all my clientele. It is my opinion that nutrition should never be overlooked or underestimated. Even the best workout plans are undercut by uninformed nutrition decisions

Nutrition determines everything. From brain organization to immune system efficiency, nutrition doesn’t just help your muscles, it elevates your entire quality of life. So, it doesn’t matter to me if you are an omnivore, vegan or vegetarian the goal of optimizing performance doesn’t change —your nutritional requirements do.

What is the Anaerobic Energy System: Part II 07/25/2018

In Part I, you learned that energy production is both time and intensity related based on the physical demands of the activity.

Since ATP is limited in duration and quantity within muscle cells, other energy substrates are relied upon to aid in energy supply if activity goes beyond what the Anaerboic Alactic Energy System can support.

Once the phosphocreatine stores are depleted in the Anaerobic Alactic Energy System, the Anaerobic Lactic Energy System is activated relying on the use of blood glucose or glycogen in the muscles and liver for ATP.

The Big Bang of Body Types 07/10/2018

While we haven’t evolved into a new species over the last century, a new gene pool within competitive sports has evolved.

In the early half of the twentieth century the “average body type” was declared as the best for all athletic endeavors — average height, average weight no matter the sport.

As sports scientists recognized that highly specialized bodies fit into specific athletic niches. A form of artificial selection took place, a self sorting of bodies that fit certain sports.

The Bliss Point: How The Food Industry Changed The Way We Eat 04/30/2018

The food industry does extensive research to find the bliss point of every day consumers.

The bliss point for salt, sugar, or fat is a range within which perception is that there is neither too much nor too little, but the "just right" amount of saltiness, sweetness, or richness.

In food product optimization, the goal is to include two or three of these nutrients at their bliss point.

Momentary Isometrics: Sticking Point Concentric Pauses 03/05/2018
