Hey guys. In today’s post I wanted to talk about a new muscle building and strength training program called “The DUP Method” from a couple of guys named Jason Maxwell (this guy is a rocket scientist!) and Mike Samuels.
This is a review, Click Here for the Official DUP Method website…
I’ve been lifting off and on since 1995, so that’s 20 years now. In that time I’ve tried a lot of different regimes, and at this point it’s pretty exciting to come across anything really “new”, because lets face it, doing the same old workouts over and over gets pretty boring!
This new system is pretty cool. In particular I like the fact that my quads and hams are just blowing-up, and looking just plain sick. All the ladies are gonna be scoping me out in my shorts this summer!
Anyhow, in this review I will briefly explain the basic idea behind the system. Then, I’ll tell you what I like best about it and give you some “pros and cons” to hopefully help you decide if this is something that would be good for you and your fitness/muscle building goals…
The Basic Idea Behind The D.U.P. Method (Daily Undulating Periodization)
DUP stands for “Daily Undulating Periodization” which basically means that while you are going to be training the same muscles, and even doing the same lifts multiple times per week, the workouts themselves (rep ranges, number of sets, weight, combo of lifts etc…) change from workout to workout. That’s what the word “undulating” refers to…
Anyhow – the idea here is that this exercise program will get you strong, fast and efficiently. And, by getting you stronger it will also be building your muscles so that you can get more jacked looking if that is what you are going for.
Personally, my fitness goals are to lose weight, and put on a little muscle mass. I’m already pretty strong and at this point I just don’t care about getting much stronger. I mean sure if I get stronger that’s great, but it’s not really a goal. Based on that, this might not seem like the best program for me, but as I mentioned I’m all about trying new systems, and there are a number of things about the DUP Method that appeal to me. Furthermore, even though it’s not a “fat loss” system, it can easily be tweaked for that purpose and it even comes with a bonus called DUP for fat loss which explains that this is actually a great method for cutting fat while preserving strength and muscle.
How D.U.P. Works And What You Get:
Most people think that the most effective way to build muscle and get stronger is to train each muscle group only once or at most twice a week. However, it seems like there is a lot of scientific evidence that this simply is not true. Indeed, this research indicates that your best bet is to hit your muscles several times per week, even back to back days, with varying levels of volume and intensity.
This may sound crazy, but a lot of pro bodybuilders, power-lifters and other athletes are hopping on this DUP method for training because it gets results. And, while you may be concerned about getting too sore by working out body parts this frequently the truth is that your body will quickly adjust.
The program is delivered via email, and includes a set of PDFs that give you all the info on how to use the system, walk you through the workouts, answer common questions and so forth.
The PDFs include: The DUP Method Main Manual, The DUP Method Nutrition Guide, The Optimal DUP Workout Log, a 4-Day Per Week DUP Workout Log, The “Busy Man’s” DUP Workout Log, a DUP For Beat Up Lifters Workout Log, a DUP For Hypertrophy Workout Log (for dudes looking to get super-jacked), and DUP For Fat Loss (for getting your shred on…)
There are also a few tutorial videos that go over the best way to do the main lifts, and some other bonuses that I won’t get into because I don’t want to give away the surprise.
PROS & CONS:
Pro #1) SIMPLE – The workouts themselves are super simple and straight forward. If you’ve been working out even a little bit then you will know all these lifts, nothing weird. No planks. No balancing on a ball doing one-arm dumbbell curls or any of that goofy stuff. I like how simple it is because it lets you really focus on your lifts and it makes it really easy to chart your progress.
Pro #2) Feels Good – This is a bit subjective, but personally I just like working out this way, and it feels “right” to me. It keeps your energy up and keeps you feeling strong.
Pro #3) Works – This is really the most important one I think. there is no question that if you follow the program, it will work for you to get you stronger and get you muscled-up in a short period of time.
Con #1) Not for Everyone… Here’s the thing, it is what it is. If you are a chick looking for some fitness program that involves Pilates or using the butt-blaster machine, then this system isn’t that. If however you are somebody male or female who is looking to get stronger, and to add muscle as quickly and efficiently as possible then this program will deliver on that.
Obviously I have already said that I really like this program, and I will be sticking with it for a while. There are also various “customizations” that you can do to target you guns, or in my case to burn more fat etc… So it’s easy to switch things up with this program.
My recommendation is that if you are looking to get stronger and put on some muscle then you should definitely give this program a try. I think you will probably like it a lot! Click Here to Download The DUP Method Now!
