8lbs of Lean Mass in One Workout - and other surprises Feb 24 - from brad pilon

Apropos of all this discourse on protein synthesis vs absorption vs muscle mass gain, this just in from brad pilon (yes of eat stop eat fame). How to add 8lbs of lean mass in one workout. i love it

The main idea? Check out the video and register for a teleseminar (it's free) to find out more insider knowledge about how supplement companies make some of the outrageous claims they do - with seeming results.
But get some good tips too. Taken from the teleseminar page:
* How many calories it REALLY takes to build muscle

* Why HEIGHT has more to do with the amount of calories you need on a daily basis and how to use the "Rule of 7's and 3's" to determine how BIG you'll actually end up

* A sneaky trick that all marketers use to get you to THINK that you're gaining more muscle than you really are... and how this same sneaky trick is SAPPING you out of your hard earned money in the process

* How adding just 5 lbs of muscle in JUST THE RIGHT PLACES gives the illusion of a 25 lb increase in size... DRUG FREE...

* The TRUTH on testimonials and "before and after" pics and how EVEN YOU can make yourself look super huge in 24 hours... without ever touching the inside of a gym or taking a "magic powder". This is the one secret the supplement companies DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW

(here's a preview on the above one from brad's blog, 2007:

how to gain 10 pounds of muscle and lose 5 pounds of fat in only 2 days.

Note: the above link to the seminar links back to me, but the seminar is free, so it seems that it's for counting purposes - but heck if you'd like to buy a copy of eat stop eat from my site (it's a good researched read whether you practice fasting or not) that's lovely, too (more about affiliate links at b2d)

Aside: as i've said before, colleagues i trust (and now me, too) are blending precision nutrition with eat stop eat for
great nutrition knowledge (overview), and exploration of the benefits/vibes of fasting.

Anyway, the seminar sounds like it's going to be fun. Let me know what you think.

Oh and as one more place to get psyched for what promises to be a fun evening, here's an interview Mike T Neslon did with Mr. Pilon.

Is it that he just drinks 8 pounds of water while he did that workout?


Dan said...

Well if that water bottle he has is a gallon that would work.

What's with all the chain craziness lol.

He's a good marketer.

Bryce said...

Hmm. Drinks a gallon (8lbs) of water in an hour's workout, and gains 8lbs of "lean mass," i.e. anything that's not fat. Sure I believe that.

Hopefully his goal is to show us that marketing gimmicks which claim massive lean mass gains are meaningless, because it's mostly water weight.

I routinely weigh 6 to 8 pounds heavier the night before than in the morning as I drink over 5 liters per day. Alas, with so much water in me, it normally means 3 or 4 trips to the washroom throughout the night, which isn't too much fun.

Hi Guys, thanks for dropping by. And ain't it neat what one can claim with terms! that's indeed the point.
i'm gonna be in transit when the seminar is on, so i'll look forward to your reports. It looks like it's gonna be a hoot.
