Check out Part II of my interrogation with Vince DelMonte below..
Vince: What do you mean when you say stuff like, "I'll help you slap on rugged muscle..."
Zach - Rugged muscles comes from the old school movements that so many people miss out on, especially in these fancy gyms. Look at the bodybuilders from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. They had that rugged, chiseled look that came from an intense focus on the basic lifts with heavy loads. Today’s bodybuilders are puffy and bloated.
Vince:: If I could only train 3-4 x a week for 15 minutes, what would the workout look like?
Zach: Start with a good warm up and then get going with a heavy “core” lift, which simply means a serious compound lift such as the deadlift or the dumbbell clean and press. After a few hard sets in the 3 – 8 rep range, crank out some supersets that are push / pull movements for the upper body or for quads / hamstrings.
So for upper body we could start with the 1 arm dumbbell clean and press, followed by supersets of mixed grip pull ups and weighted push ups non stop for the next 7 – 8 minutes.
Vince: You're all about getting STRONG STRONG STRONG. Why is this so important? What if I hate lifting heavy weights?
Zach- being strong is a critical way to adding muscle. If you want to add muscle, your muscles must be forced OUT of their comfort zone. You can’t add muscle just with pump weights. If you hate lifting heavy you will not develop that look of a Gladiator, that look of raw power.
In addition, the mental edge it will give you knowing that you are stronger and tougher than the next guy is a BIG plus.
Vince: Quick glimpse of your personal life if you don't mind - why were you inspired to make Real Man Muscle Building/
Zach: I work a full time job, run a gym and run my internet business. I’m also a husband and a father of two. I MUST represent for my family and children that being a man means being strong, fit, healthy and hard working. I don’t feel “right” if I was the typical weak, soft and flabby Dad. That is embarrassing, plain and simple!
Vince: How your workouts COMPLETELY different than all the other options out there?
Zach: I have removed all the fancy, scientific mumbo jumbo and taken the complications out of these workouts. There are WAY too many overly scientific workout programs that do little to nothing for getting results.
Vince: Who would you disqualify from using your workouts immediately?
Zach: Anyone who doesn’t want to work hard.
Vince: Share some final insights on your philosophy on nutrition and supplements?
Zach: I’m not a big fan of supplements. A great multi vitamin, some extra vitamind C throughout the day and some calcium at night before bed. The rest must come from high quality nutrition. I suggest laying low on milk, breads and dairy. Focus on quality protein from meats and fish and maybe a daily meal replacement shake. 1 salad a day, fruits and veggies scattered throughout the entire day and tons of water.
It looks great on paper, but most people don’t keep their house stocked with enough quality foods, or, they don’t cook in quantity which leads to irrational choices for eating.
Eat 5 meals per day:
3) mid afternoon meal
5) late evening meal
