With so many fitness programs out on the market and on the internet today, what makes this program any different than all the rest?
Old school new body review
Before we get to the program, let’s take a look at the experts behind this program. Steve Holman is editor and chief of Iron Man Magazine, John Rowley is an author, speaker and contributor to much of the media including Fox News, SmartMoney and Martha Stewart. Becky Holman is a wife, mother and contributor to Iron Man Magazine.
Steve and Becky Holman have been married for 27 years. Steve started weight training at 15 as a skinny 119-pounder and has been training ever since (more than 35 years).
Becky has been working out on and off for more than 20 years, but she lapsed in her 30s while raising her two daughters. In her 40s she became fed up with her overweight appearance and made a radical physical transformation in only a few months. She is now a regular contributor of nutrition- based items to IRON MAN magazine.
Steve has been IM’s Editor in Chief for more than 25 years. He has written more than 20 books on bodybuilding, weight training and nutrition and has also penned hundreds of articles on building muscle and burning fat. His blog, “Built for Life,” is at IronManMagazine.com.
Steve has also interviewed many legendary physique stars, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cory Everson, Tom Platz and Lee Labrada. His bodybuilding e-books are available at X-Rep.com and X-traordinaryWorkouts.com
So let’s not beat around the bush; just what is the F4 system ? It’s a method of training based on one that has been lost and collecting dust. The reason it’s been “lost” is because of the emphasis on intensity, which most trainees equate to heavy, joint-jolting workouts.
Go to any gym, and you’ll see that most people are either using very light weights and resting too long or pounding their bodies with heavy weights, eventually getting injured. Contrary to popular belief, heavy bone- crushing poundage’s are not necessary for fast results. In fact, they can be detrimental. Those current heavy-training trends can overstress your body, jar your joints and actually damage your immune system because of excess stress hormone release (cortisol).
You do need to expend effort, but it should be cumulative. What does that mean? Here’s how it works.
The F4 system calls for moderate poundages for less joint stress and relies on high muscle fatigue for intensitywhich means short rests between sets and growth hormone release. Growth Hormone triggers a veritable muscle-building, fat-burning (and anti-aging) cascade. That hormone decreases significantly as you get older, but this type of training can provide a real resurgence.
In short you can get in the best shape of your life, turn back the clock on aging all while strengthening your muscle, ligaments and joints. This fly’s in the face of modern exercise programs, which is good because people are not getting the results they are after. With Old School New Body they will get results . Period!
