    Default "Hot Wheels By Summer" Report

    Yesterday I've done the 9th workout of the "Hot Wheels By Summer" program from "Beyond Bodybuilding".

    If there is anyone interested in seriously upgrading the amount of muscle mass on his/her lower body, while loosing some fat too, then this routine will definitely must be taken into consideration, as far as I have experimented!

    In 9 workouts I had to upgrade my pants from size 60 to size 64 . I have started very, very light (100kg, while I could easily do 230kg box squats, on a very low box) and I've added 10kg/workout (yesterday I did 190kg ) . I am already scared of the fact that I have 3 more workouts to go, and the things start to get serious in the end. I have muscle soreness all over the body, even to my biceps and triceps! Only the pecs were not sore at all.

    I used box squats instead of regular squats, mostly to prevent me from cheating and shortening the range of motion.

    Sometimes I did 2 sets of 20reps (mostly empty bar or just 2 plates on the barbell) of barbell bridges and 2 sets of bird dogs, to contract the glutes better.

    The downside of this is that I have terrible muscle soreness and tightness in my upper glutes, and I have to practice those stretching tips from Relax Into Stretch and Super Joints just to be able to function normal.

    This is my experience with this program.

    Default Good stuff

    Good stuff Red Boar. I don't mind buying new pants, some things are worth the extra money!

    I always use a golf ball on the glute area every once in a while to make sure there are are no active trigger points. The glutes are vital for power output so I make sure they are free of problems. This also ensures no related lower back pain.

    I did this program a few months ago. Pavel mentions that you'll need to eat and sleep enough to make it work. I found the eating to be the most difficult part. But it worked, and there was noticeable increase in my legs, back to my days when I was still competitive.

    I did not have too much soreness after the first week and continued my stretching which is fairly extensive to begin with. But, I will say that I was glad when it was done, it was a hard workout and I was having to cut back on a lot of other things I normally do, even the KBs.

    Yes, I would say the Smolov would look like a vacation compared to the Hot Wheels by Summer routine, especially for those who are not very good in their conditioning.

    Sleeping and eating are of paramount importance for any hypertrophy program! Training is just a part of the growth equation. However, proper training is pure GOLD for Comrades looking to upgrade their clothes.

    Hope our experience may help other Comrades looking for lower body muscle hypertrophy.

    Thank you, Comrade Pavel Tsatsouline, for your extremely effective routines!

    Power to all of you, Comrades!

    Red Boar,

    First of all, thank you for sharing.

    Do you think the Delorme left you lacking something leg wise?. I imagine it did more for your lower back and hammies, but less for the rest of the lower body.

    Also, you say you are sore all over. Did your upper body increase size too?. Did you think about doing some pullovers ala 20 rep squats?.

    Thank you,

    Jimi.

    Strong work as always Com. Red Boar. I have nothing to add aside from another option for working on tight glutes/low back...a softball. The bigger size seems to work better for me than a golf ball, and with two of them you can hit both back extensors perfectly. It's a little fumbly (my t-shirt always ends up trying to choke me out) but really does the job.

    Comrade Few018:

    Honestly, I cannot do pullovers consistently on this program. There is a huge amount of volume, and you will start enjoying some serious pain after the first 5-6 workouts . I do not think there was a significant hypertrophy in the upper body, but certainly I did not loose any size; and my abs are tighter than ever.

    Yes, I missed some serious squat sessions after the DeLorme routine, and the Fatigue Cycling program. Heavy squatting is extremely romantic I think like the charge of the light brigade or something. OK, deadlifts are brutal and make you feel strong, confident and get BIG but squats are more intimidating and fulfilling at the same time... like watching the stars.

    Comrade Pesce: Thank you for your suggestion. I am trying your method right now .

    Comrade Pavel Tsatsouline: Pain from your programs is GOOD! I will review Beyond Bodybuilding.
