THE SECRET BEHIND

INTERVIEW BY ADAM GETHIN

t was only right that the first issue of KAGED MUSCLE magazine had an interview with the
man himself, Kris Gethin, to set the pace. In this action-packed interview, we discuss with
Kris his mind-set behind the development of KAGED MUSCLE supplements and help you
get to know a little bit more about the brand ethos. Lets jump straight into it and ask Kris
some questions!

Before launching KAGED MUSCLE, I was offered

I was having with this company were all about

Abdominal Obesity Associated with Chronic Low Back Pain
A new study recently examined the relationship of regional and total adipos-
ity (obesity) to pain and disability among individuals with chronic low back
pain. Researchers analyzed 70 men and women with chronic low back pain
using body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio, total body adiposity and specific
ultrasound-based abdominal adiposity measurements. Participants also
completed pain and disability questionnaires. The results that between the

Does Your Pain Come from Another Part of the Body?


In this case study, the parents of an eight-year-old with intermittent, chronic

Americans Are Heavier Than 20 Years Ago


According to a new report, the average American has put on about fifteen
pounds (~6.8 kg) since the late 1980s and early 1990s.. The authors of the
report speculate the reasons behind the increase in weight are most likely
related to tendencies toward less exercise and more access to high-calorie
foods. Dr. Anthony Comuzzie, an obesity researcher and scientist with the
department of genetics at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San
Antonio, says that the study reveals that Americans are still gaining weight
at a fairly rapid rate, and such an increase does not bode well for the overall
health of the nation. The findings suggest there will likely be an associated
increase in chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease in the
coming years. National Center for Health Statistics Report, August 2016

High-Rep Training Works!
On leg day, I love to squat heavy, with low reps. However, theres
nothing that has made my muscles grow quite as well as high-
rep training! My shoulders never grew until I started throwing
loads of volume at them with higher rep ranges, for example.
This isnt to replace low-rep training, it is there to complement
it! Low-rep training is all about muscle recruitment, high-
threshold motor unit stimulation whereas higher rep training is
amazing for cell swelling and sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. They
help you grow, together.

All I can do is bring the information to your door. What you


do with it is entirely up to you!

If Im trying something new in the gym or with my diet or supplement program, I like to
feel something happen to confirm it is having the desired effect. Are you the same? Im
sure you are because we all like to know what were investing, whether that is time or
money, is working, otherwise it undermines the whole point of making the effort. Its
been 10 years since I stepped into this industry as a nave teenager who wanted all of
the gains possible, which made me highly vulnerable to falling for supplement gimmicks
and even training systems which were nothing other than redressed outdated theories
designed to build a cult following. Hey, you live and learn, which is why Im here today
writing this column for you.

Maybe youve expected a workout to crush your muscles into
submission from me today, but without the mental appetite for that
kind of punishment, it would have been a waste of time writing it out
for you. What you need is a lesson in mind-set conditioning, so youre
prepared for the unsavory treatment youre soon to experience from
my training routines. Regard this as your theory, before the practical.

Learn To Love Failure
While the modern generation of fitness enthusiast barks like a kitten about
how failure is bad for you, I dive headfirst into the lactate-infused pools
which come with the territory. Using aggression in the gym to defeat your
muscles into a true state of failure is the quickest way to make your mind
adapt. The first time you do something is always the worst; thereafter your
body will adapt if you force it to.

Turn up to the gym with nothing but chaos on your mind, rip that muscle
apart with endless bouts of savage lifting ending in failure. The pain will
become pleasure, and your mind-set will become aligned to this regular
punishment.

Become Ritualistic
My pre-workout ritual is widely documented, from the PRE-KAGED I take to
the music I zone out to in preparation for my episode of physical torment.
You need a ritual which you follow before every workout because this
pre-warns your mind that s*** is about to get serious. By building this habit
you improve your mental preparation so by the time your workout begins,
youre already in the zone.

Cats drop right, left and center during their workout all because they
werent mentally ready for the damage they were about to suffer. Dont
leave yourself exposed like an amateur. Prepare as if your life counts on it!

Go To That Dark Place


As I reach the latter stages of my set and my muscles begin to get a sniff of
failure, I go to a very dark place inside my head. When youve trained with
the likes of six-time Mr. Olympia, Dorian Yates, you learn how to repel the de-
sire to give in by doing this. Shut your eyes, imagine somebody has a gun to
the head of somebody you truly love and tell yourself unless you reach the
end of the set, that trigger gets pulled. Ive never failed to see this through
because I couldnt take that chance. This is about leveraging the minds true
power to climb from the depths of adversity and become victorious, even
when all of your instincts tell you to quit.

Weve all heard of amazing stories where everydaypeople have been put
into situations where they have had to use enormous amounts of mental
power to come out on top. This is really what Im asking you for! Put your
back against the wall and learn to fight.

jesSE norris column WRITTEN BY JESSE NORRIS

So you want to be strong? Well, there is a lot to take into account with todays train-
ing. Everyone has their own method, everyone is a coach on social media. So if you
are just beginning, it can be tough to decide how to get going.

Today I want to give you a little insight into what everyone is doing wrong, and what
you can do to maximize your strength gains in the gym, whether you are just starting
or you are a more advanced lifter.

From my experience, even when I started lifting years ago, there were so many differ-
ent training programs for powerlifting and I personally did not know where to start.
Luckily I had a coach who took the time to teach me the big three lifts (squat, bench
and deadlift) and give me a basic fundamental routine to increase those lifts.

So this brings me to my point; whether you are just beginning or are more
advanced in the strength world, try not to overcomplicate your training. Stick
to the basics or at least keep them incorporated in your training.

Trust me, it was not a fancy program. It consisted of the squat, bench and deadlift
once a week each. It was built in a linear progression so you would increase weight
and decrease reps as time went on to help you test your max. It was a very basic
program; nothing crazy or out of the blue. And it worked! Which brings me to my
point, that everyone wants to try to overcomplicate things. That may be okay for
an advanced lifter but for anyone that is just starting, stick to your basics, and
build from there.

As you begin to understand what your body is capable of you can then develop
something of your own! I personally encourage people to try out as many programs
as they can, and they need to stick to a program for 68 weeks to figure out if it
works or not. So dont go trying a new program every week.

But the more you learn about other training programs and methods, the more you
will learn about yourself. You will find out what exercises benefit you the most, how
many days a week you can work out without fatiguing yourself, how much volume
you need to grow and how heavy you need to go to work on strength and peaking.
There is so much that can go into strength training, but it really comes down to
understanding how your body works.

24
KEEP IT SIMPLE
So this brings me to my point; whether you are just beginning or are more advanced in the
strength world, try not to overcomplicate your training. Stick to the basics or at least keep them
incorporated in your training.

There is no shortcut to hard work, and I can attribute the hard work I put in every single day to
being where I currently am as one of the strongest powerlifters pound-for-pound in the world. I
encourage you to try different training methods, but give them time, learn from them, grow from
them and listen to your body! It is important to find out what works best for you. And one day
you will be able to build the perfect training routine for yourself, as I have done. Of course, you
will have to modify it as you go, as your body adapts, and you will find that out as well! Keep it
simple, train hard and listen to your body!

dtp leg training

WRITTEN BY DAN HARRIS

DTP, otherwise known as the Dramatic Transformation Principle, is a training system like no
other. Based around volume training but with a varying rep range, it is an intense blast of
stimuli to get maximum results, but without some major setbacks of other types of training. It
can be applied to any muscle group and worked in with other popular training methods like
supersetting. It hits every muscle fibre type in one workout and leads to size, strength, muscle
endurance and cardiovascular fitness. But there is perhaps one big upside that trumps all else,
and that is the fact DTP gives you the ability to train at an incredible intensity but with a much
lower injury risk.

FEWER INJURIES?
Regular leg training will be centered around lots of heavy squats, leg press and deadlift
variations, and for good reason. These big leg compound exercises get great results in both size
and strength but they can often lead to injuries or worsechronic injuries. The most common
issues occur in the knees and back, ranging from patella tendonitis to slipped vertebrae discs.
This happens due to set after set of heavy compound leg training putting massive stress and
loads on the joints, which cannot be avoided.

30
What does
this mean?
Now Im not saying everyone needs to stop training like this.
It means you dont have to smash your joints
Some people can train like this for years and never have a

problem, but for the general population, it will inevitably

stress on the joints. The best thing is this is just
one example; it can be applied to almost any ex-
ercise for any muscle group with loads of com-
binations. It even means you can start training
around recovering injuries a little sooner than
is usually possible. You wont be able to squat
heavy for 5 sets with a recovering knee or back
issue, but with DTP you can get back to training
without putting too much stress too soon on the
joints and still get a decent amount of intensity
out of the muscle.

For example: Whats the Catch?


Leg Press Well, its tough, really tough. Its something

improvements in cardiovascular fitness.
Set 10, 50 reps

Notice how youre only lifting in that heavy 810 rep range for
2 sets in this example. Then notice how youve got sets of 40
and 50 reps, and believe me, those are very intense sets and
its that intensity that will stimulate growth no matter what.

TAKE A
STEP BACK
This is why you need to take a step back and perfect
your form and overall technique before being too
eager to lift heavy. If you dont do this, then youre
highly likely to get injured quickly, and the same
patterns will keep emerging throughout your life.

Now I am not saying dont train hard, but rather,


train smarter. Start out deadlifting off blocks,
ensuring your back is straight. Learn how to squat
properly, develop your mobility and dont push the
weights to form failure.

You need to master a movement before you load

learning how to break down a movement and
strengthen your weaknesses so that you are
continually getting stronger instead of loading
faulty movement patterns, which will inevitably
push you into pain.
