Break Set Training

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Break Set Training will put you on the fast track to not only losing 10 lbs of fat and also can help men pack on 10 lbs of muscle during the same time period with great execution. As an added bonus this functional routine will improve core strength and six pack definition without a single crunch, sit up or other mid-section exercise for both men and women. Reaching your goals is a matter of consistently executing the right training, nutrition and supplementation plans for your specific needs.*

Personalized training and nutrition program benefits advanced program executions, customization elements, weekly progressions to drive up fat burning hormones and more.

Burn fat and gain muscle

Generic routines or plans people make up out of the blue will not deliver the results you desire especially if you have been training 5 to 10 years as your body no longer responds so easily to stimuli. My work is far from over after I send customized routines to clients. I evaluate progress and feedback weekly to determine what adjustments need to be made to optimize progress.*



100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder are scientifically engineered to enable trainees to elevate performance while blocking the natural mechanisms in place that force muscles to quit prematurely during workouts.*

Proprietary amino acid ratios

“The Key to success is not only the high quality and amounts of raw materials, but the specific ratios which allow for efficient utilization by the muscles while optimizing the anabolic hormonal environment naturally. Following years of hormonal blood work, muscle biopsies, performance evaluations and body comp testing- the formulas have been perfected and deliver unmatched results- every time!”* Eric Serrano MD

Advanced strip set techniques

Break Set Training is structured similarly to a strip set, except there is no drop in load between phases of the set to ensure maximal work load is placed on the muscles to stimulate fast twitch fibers for growth and drive fat burning hormones through the roof! Some exercises will be done unilaterally (one arm at a time) to let each limb take on the full force of the weight load and increase neurological activation. Increasing your focus on each arm individually will increase fiber recruitment and force you focus on proper form and rep speed to help you get the most out of every rep.*

One arm at a time for Accelerated muscle growth!

Start the unilateral sets with the Left arm, perform 8 reps, and with no rest between switch to the right arm for 8 reps. At this point your muscles will be pumped full of blood and Dr. Serrano’s proven proprietary blend of potent growth Amino Acids within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder. Rest long enough to take a few gulps and now your left arm will be ready for action again without any drop in the weight load, following 8 reps, switch to the right arm for 8 reps and that will be one challenging set. This is like packing a 90 minute workout in half the time – you need the right fuel sources to prevent the muscles revolting against you.*
