In this week’s episode I start my prep to get in shape with HEAVY DUTY LEG WORKOUT This is continuation of my fat to fit transformation series. Here I am going to explore more on training methodology of HIT Mike menzter heavy duty training or Dorian Yates style of training. Of course Arthur Jones started it all and Mike menzter continued and contributed to this training system. Dorian Yates followed and improvised based on his needs.
Follow my journey as I break down this training system and track my progress and experience on heavy duty training system. This is fat to fit India, the workout took me less than 40 minutes, there two exercises which I did and haven't added in the video. 

Exercises used :
Leg press
Leg extension 
Hamstring curls
Smith machine lunges
Machine calf raises

2-3 warm up sets  1 working set to failure (I didn't go to failure but close to failure)

People often complain heavy duty or HIT does work and boy I will tell you, it does work very well. Another thing people complain about HIT is it leads to injury, well it does if you don’t tech well and train properly with full concentration. Subscribe to my YouTube channel click on the bell icon.

How to build Massive chest

How to Build a Massive Chest ? well i have the answer. yup you are on the right track to finding golden cheat sheet to build big chest muscles fast. Chest workout is one of the best and taxing workouts of them all.

Building great chest isn't rocket science but needs lot of dedication and hard work like any other body part. Whether you want to build massive chest at home or build big chest muscles in the gym
barbell bench press is one of the staple exercises to build huge chest and intensity is the key.



If you want to build big chest muscles fast We can also use reverse grip decline bench press along with inclined barbell bench press to vary the routine.

The 4 must –do exercises for building huge chest , which I suggest to vary one’s routine are as follows:

Inclined Bench Press     5 Sets of 6 – 8 Reps

Reverse Grip Decline Bench Press      4 Sets of 6 Reps

Dumbbell Fly’s        4 Sets of 6 Reps

Machine Fly’s     5 Sets of 6 – 8 Reps

Full Body vs. Split Training for Natural Bodybuilders

BroSplit Vs. full body workout which is better form of training and which builds more muscle? I go with full body workout rather than bro split why you may ask? Here is the answer if you want your muscle to grow you need to stimulate your muscle and more you stimulate the bigger muscles you grow.

When on a full body workout routine you train major body parts like back, chest and legs 3 times per week sometimes more. Thus this frequency and using compound moments like bench press, deadlift and squats will beat your body up and yield great results.

When on a full body workout routine you end up expanding more energy compared to brosplit.  More energy you burn more calories you burn. Training biceps and triceps on a separate day is no match for exercises like bench press, squat and deadlifts. Here is a video detailing how each form of training routine impacts our body and yield result.

The German Giant Markus Ruhl

The German Giant Markus Ruhl is an ifbb pro bodybuilder and had a great physique. He had the widest shoulder width in bodybuilding and he was a sight to watch.  Markus began training at the age of 18 following a doctor's recommendation after sustaining a knee injury while playing soccer. At 120 lb., Rühl began training hard six days a week until deciding to compete on a professional level five years later.

Best Protein Source for Indian Diet

I often get asked what the best Protein Source is for Indian Diet. Well the answer is neither complex nor very simple; there are varieties of food from which you can get the desired macros. What matters are your food choice and your goal, that’s the most important aspect one needs to focus on.


I am a Non-vegetarian and I like to get my protein from chicken and fish. Chicken and fish are one of the best sources of protein as they have low fat and great protein. I love eggs and I like to eat whole eggs rather than just egg whites.

When it comes to vegetarian source of protein I like paneer, tofu and cheese but I like to stay away from those foods and use them sparingly in my diet. You can get protein from milk products and soya, here in this video I explain that in details.
