Contact Scott@infinityfitness.com today if you are serious about taking your success to the next level. Personalized weight training, interval sprint and nutrition programs built for individual needs are an unstoppable force. Now is the time to take action for a great summer body. Your old plans have not delivered the desired results. Repeating those broken plans is a waste of time, energy and money.

Smoking Biceps and Triceps
Dr. Serrano’s proprietary ingredient ratios built into the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder lay the perfect raw material foundation to regenerate muscles during training while increase the burning of stored fat as fuel.*

Long of the biceps targeting

Most biceps training over emphasizes the short head of the muscle with common exercises. Seated incline curl positions target the long head to develop a fuller muscle. Starting the three movement complexes with the hardest exercises creates pre fatigue conditions for the second and third exercises which further improves development.

Accumulating muscle fibers for significant growth

Stimulating muscle growth starts with “damaging” muscle fibers so they will regrow to be larger during the recovery process. The muscle recovery process starts immediately following the set with nutrients available in the blood stream. So the question becomes how to stimulate more fibers during training with quick access to the perfect growth materials.

Cash flow for the muscles

Just like a thriving business needing a steady steam of cash.  Hard working muscles need a near constant access to a s specific ratio of amino acids to maximize rates of growth and recovery.  100% MR and Muscle Synthesis deliver the ideal raw material ratios developed by Dr. Serrano when sipped before, during and immediately after training to take full advantage of the opportunities created during highly intense training sessions.

Twenty seconds rest following the 75 degree incline curl to the 45 degree incline curl allows fewer muscle fibers to recover between sets in comparison to a 60 second rest period. As a result the 45 degree incline curl can “damage” a different portion of muscles fibers than usual. Another twenty second break before the seated curl creates more muscle fiber exposure during this final phase of the three movement complex.

Embrace the burn

Challenging weight loads, controlled rep speeds, and short rest between sets drives up lactic acid which is responsible for the burning feeling within the muscles. Lactic acid is a precursor to the all mighty fat burning catalyst- Growth Hormone. Dr. Serrano’s proprietary ingredient ratios built into the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis lay the perfect raw material foundation to regenerate muscles during training while increase the burning of stored fat as fuel.*

Finishing set techniques

Applying a finishing set technique to the third exercise in each complex will help you gain the most benefits out of every challenging training session. After failing during rep 6 during the seated curl you can stand out to gain more leverage and finish the set with 6 additional grueling reps. The final triceps exercise offers the unique opportunity to break the set into two parts so that one arm is working to the max while the other gets a short rest period.

Smoking Biceps and Triceps

GCX10 enables trainees to push yourself to the limit by pumping out the difficult reps that separate those earning great vs. just average results.  The scientifically engineered blend of lactoferrin, ATP and Glycine attacks visceral and stubborn fat without stimulants.  *

Triceps tactics

The biceps training complex difficulty imposes significant neurological demand.  As a result we chose strategic cable movements to target the triceps.  Pay close attention to the proper body position during the triceps movements to keep valuable tension the muscles instead of the joints.  We performed several pressing movements during another upper body workout during this particular week.  The triceps respond very well to pressing movements, however repeating these elements twice in a week is not productive.

No more flabby arms

New female clients often complain about flab hanging on to their arms. In addition to reducing overall body fat levels the arm muscles must be properly trained to improve muscle tone. Resulting improvements in body composition deliver frim arms fit for the beach. We have never seen a female client accidentally develop overly muscular arms. Erase from your mind everything you have heard from infomercials, talk shows and magazines regarding weight training for females.

Special executions:

*break set into two parts- half reps seated and rest standing

^6 reps with left arm, 6 reps with right arm, 6 reps with left arm and finally 6 reps with right arm to complete one set.

Form notes:

During the seated curl movements look straight ahead by picking a visual focus spot on the ceiling. Do not flex the neck forward during the exercise. On the bottom of the curl keep at least 10 degrees of flexion in the elbows to prevent unnecessary joint stress.

Use an athletic knee position during the triceps exercises and keep the chest upright. Do not lean forward during the triceps movements which otherwise can overstress the shoulders, elbows and wrists. Start each triceps exercise with the weaker arm.

High Calorie Days to Peak Fat Burning

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

High calorie days (HCD) full of great food choices one time every 10 to 14 days are having a great impact on client fat loss progress. We will explain how to optimize metabolism, fat burning hormones, fat cell function and more to help you earn your ideal physique this summer.  Yes we even include the right desserts in moderation*

High calorie day powerful fat burning benefits

  • Sends metabolic rate into over drive*
  • Optimize fat burning hormones*
  • Macronutrient cycling tactic to prevent metabolic staleness*
  • Cleanses fat cells*
  • Busts fat loss plateaus*
  • Fuels aggressive training*
  • Improves daily energy levels*
  • Reduces hunger for many days following*
  • Provides a huge mental lift*
  • Supports overall nutrition plan compliance and prevents cheating*

 

High Calorie Day FunHit the beach this summer looking your best by having the right weight training, interval sprint and nutrition plan in place.  GCX10 chips away at stubborn fat to shape a great six pack.*

Cheat meals for optimizing metabolism

Let’s draw a line in the sand right now. Cheat days or meals full of bad food choices will slow down the rate of fat loss by screwing up fat cell function, hormones, setting off food allergies and more. Diets promoting these “cheating” strategies are just telling people what they want to hear. The negative impact on fat burning can last for several days or longer which ends up undoing weeks of hard work. A high calorie day increases feelings of satisfaction and limits cravings making it much easier to execute a nutrition plan consistently.  *

The high calorie day metabolic enhancement protocol

First Thing in the Morning Fat Reduce FBO5 day time formula with 12 oz of cold water.

Brunch
4-6 whole cage free eggs cooked in grass fed butter
Avocado added to eggs
Vegetables with eggs such as peppers and onions
Grass fed beef or pork bacon
½ grapefruit
Coffee with heavy whipping cream
3 Alpha Omega M3

30 minutes before weight training
2-4 scoops 100% MR
2-4 scoops Muscle Synthesis Powder
Mixed together with water into the same drink

4 GCX10 Physique and Performance Enhancer

Immediately post training

2-4 scoops 100% MR
2-4 scoops Muscle Synthesis Powder
Mixed together with water into the same drink

30 to 60 minutes following training Dinner

One grass fed T Bone Steak
One grass fed Skirt Steak
Large salad with multicolored vegetables
Guacamole

Black bean dip or black bean soup.

Dessert

Melted dark chocolate with 2 cups strawberries, cherries, blackberries, raspberries or blueberries.
3 Alpha Omega M3

1-2 hours before bed Fat Reduce FBO5 night time formula.

Adjust portion sizes accordingly based on body size and appetite. Eat until you feel satisfied, but do not go overboard to avoid stomach upset and fatigue.

Sugar time

Yes we include desserts and items with sugar into the high calorie day when appropriate.  Picking items that do not set off allergies and are free of trans fats for example are very important to support client success.  Adding 6 Alpha Omega M3 to a meal containing desserts is crucial for keeping fat storage hormones in check while interfering with fat storage on the cellular level.*

push up

Taken between meals and around training the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis proprietary ratios make the brain believe a massive amount of food has been consumed.  As a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.*

Surge Rates of Fat Burning with a High Quality Caloric Intake

Following 10-14 days on the KISS fat loss nutrition plan the stage is set perfectly for the high calorie day to surge fat burning. A metabolic revival takes place as the body receives signals that a huge amount of food is available. The large intake of food shuts off starvation alarms the body naturally has in place to slow the rate of fat burning. The body then feels free to burn a significant amount of stored fat as fuel. Metabolism increases not only to handle the new influx of food, but remains at peaked rates in case other large meals are consumed on the following days.*

The ultimate fat burning breakfast

A fasting status is highly effective for body fat loss due to distinct metabolic and hormonal improvements that take place. Reduced caloric intake is a part of the success equation but it is relatively minor compared to the metabolic and hormonal improvements which allow the body to burn more stored fat as fuel.*

High Calorie Day eggs
Moving your first meal later to be a brunch is high advantageous on a high calorie day to promote a fasted state from the time period following dinner the night before.

 Big Time BBQ

Grass fed beef is an excellent choice for high calorie meals as the superior dietary fat content can support fat burning. Steaks, hot dogs, hamburgers, lamb, bison, pork loin, wild caught seafood and more can be consumed in mass quantities for a very satisfying meal. This is a great time to invite family and friends over for a BBQ which supports body fat loss and high levels of performance.*

Other menu options:

Pickles
Vegetable Salads and bean salads
Grilled vegetables
Extra Virgin Olive oil based dressings and marinades
Guacamole
Bean salad without added sugar, soybean oil or trans fats.

Two Big Meals are Better Than Several Smaller Meals

Consuming two large meals allows the body to stay in high rate of fat burning for a large part of the day. Having two large meals instead of several smaller meals is beneficial by keeping insulin levels in check over the course of the day. Insulin is a powerful fat storage hormone that must be kept in check. More meals means that insulin levels are increased frequently even if they include good food choices.*

Timing is Everything

Schedule one of your big meals about an hour after training to maximize your fat burning and muscle repair benefits. The timing is especially important for men who are trying to gain muscle while losing body fat. Alpha Omega M3 consumed with the meal following training optimizes insulin sensitivity which is crucial for fat burning ongoing. The special ratios of essential fats Dr. Serrano has developed drives raw materials into hungry muscles instead of spilling over into fat cells.*

Fat Cell Cleansing Strategies
Cleansing the Fat Cell
There are many misconceptions about body fat- it is made up of billions of fat cells, some we are born with and others created by bad food choices such as corn oil used in frying and Trans fats within a countless number of packaged goods you have consumed over your life time.*
Cleanse fat cells

Trans fats were designed to extend shelf life and to lower the fat intake on food labels leading consumers to believe items are “diet friendly” choices. Nothing could be further from the truth as in actuality these fake fats are very hard to get rid of. Doughnuts you consumed years ago and last week have left a trail of bad materials that you must clean up to restore proper fat cell function. Otherwise progress will be painfully slow. *

Burn Down The Fat Cell Warehouse

Once you have a large warehouse of fat cells your capacity to store body fat is greatly increased forever. You can manipulate cell size by making them collectively shrink and that is how we lower body fat levels. Furthermore, fill fat cells with their desired essential fatty acid materials found in Alpha Omega M3 clinically developed proprietary ratios and this cements a powerful barrier to future body fat accumulation even when diet is less than perfect for stretches of time.*

May 20 2016   7% Body fat  236 ripped pounds

“Dr. Serrano is helping me reach the best competition shape of my life with specialized weight training, nutrition and supplement program advice. I am looking forward to crushing the competition during to bodybuilding shows in Italy this summer.

Been there- done that

At age 44 I have used many different training and nutrition programs, but some working better than others. Dr. Serrano’s approach based on my specific situation and goals has been extremely helpful. I have visited with Dr. Serrano every 6 weeks to evaluate my progress so that the right changes can be made to my program.

Pre contest prep strategies

Dr. Serrano recommended the 100% MR, Muscle Synthesis Powder, Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10 to help me reach my goals. My diet has been extremely aggressive, but I have not lost any muscle during my prep.

Intense training sessions

My workouts are highly intense and I recover very quickly between training sessions. Usually during a low carb diet my muscles are flat and depleted. I think the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis are making a huge difference with muscle fullness and giving me more energy in the tank during very tough training sessions.

More power and strength endurance

I expected the GCX10 to help with fat burning, which it did. I had no idea how big of a difference it would make with training power and endurance. I am using higher weight loads for more reps than previous training cycles which is a big driver of physique progress based on years of my training records.

During my most recent trip we used a high calorie day approach to determine the best protocol to use during the last few days of prep for each show. By the end of the high calorie day I was looking leaner and harder than ever before.”*

Thanks Dr. Serrano and Scott

Neutralize stress fat storage hormones

High stress not only interferes with body fat loss, but also supports fat storage around the belly for men and lower body for women. We have a tremendous amount of experience helping clients lose body fat while improving energy levels even when facing stressful conditions.*

Elevated insulin levels triggered by high stress including cortisol spikes will make body fat loss nearly impossible even if the diet and training execution are well above average. Optimizing insulin sensitivity enables the body to use insulin more efficiently creating a situation where there are lower levels of this potent fat storing hormone.*

Successful fat burning strategies extensively used by our clients:

KISS fast for 12-15 hours following dinner until lunch.*

Train more frequently with short interval and weight training sessions.*

Fat Reduce FBO5 to bust through hormonal barriers to fat loss*

Target carbohydrate intake strategically with macronutrient cycling*

Increase dietary fat intake from organic choices*

Alpha Omega M3 daily to improve the metabolic response to meals.*

Neutralize cortisol levels with pre/post workout nutrition tactics*

 

Fat Reduce FBO5
Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night Time formulas are scientifically engineered to bust through the most significant hormonal and metabolic barriers to fat loss.*

Unlock fat burning potential by optimizing insulin sensitivity

Dr. Serrano and Scott My wife and I are 15 pounds of stubborn fat from having great six packs by Memorial Day.  We have been in great shape before, but lately progress has been slow since our personal and work stress levels have gone up. We both have had trouble falling asleep and wake up feeling more tired than usual.  Cravings have been much higher lately and we have given into them a few times which is totally out of character for us.  Thanks for reviewing our nutrition plans that we sent by email.

Answer:

Eating Clean and Reducing Calories is Not Enough To Earn a 6 Pack

We reviewed your nutrition journals and you guys have done a great job eliminating junk food, but your insulin sensitivity is very poor for a number of reasons including consuming the wrong types and amounts of carbohydrate, non-organic saturated fats, items that damage fat cell function, too much dairy intake, alcohol consumption, lack of essential fats, poor sleep and more.

Stress contributes to overtraining and low energy

Throw in stress (further elevated by excessive steady sate cardio and overtraining) into the equation and insulin levels will become even worse while activating fat storage receptors which are plentiful in stubborn fat areas.*

Low Morning Energy Problem Starts with Your Habits the Night Before.
Poor sleep quality will cause you to wake up tired with very low blood sugar. As a result the body will crave carbohydrate to boost energy temporarily, but this also stimulates fat storage for several hours. Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time taken 1 to 2 hours before bed will help you transition to into a deep level of sleep by lowering stress levels.*

Fat Reduce FBO5
Scientifically engineered fat burning with Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night time formulas.*

“Hormones govern fat loss and I designed the Fat Reduce FOB5 Day and Night time formulas to bust through the most significant barriers to  fat loss including high stress based on years of hormonal blood work evaluations. Fat Reduce FBO5 Day Time and Night Time provide the necessary ingredients at the right times to optimize fat burning and improve daily energy through multiple pathways.”* Eric Serrano MD.

Improve sleep quality

You will wake up feeling great and by virtue of improved sleep quality your insulin sensitivity will also improve. The Fat Reduce FBO5 Day time formula is taken twice daily and can improve energy as well as mental focus without over stimulating your system.

Dr. Serrano developed Fat Reduce FBO5 to solve the most significant barriers to stubborn fat loss including hormonal challenges, sluggish metabolism and more.  Clients report waking up feeling more well rested which can be attributed to improved sleep quality which is linked to optimal body composition*

Physique breakfast of champions

The KISS fat loss nutrition system uses fasting for 12 to 15 hours starting after dinner until lunch time the following day as a powerful fat burning tool that attributes a large part of its success to improving insulin sensitivity. Start the day with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis powder to protect hard earned muscle, improve energy, control hunger and to increase the utilization of stored fat as fuel through several pathways.*

Drinking the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis is quick and easy while tasting great. The scientifically engineered amino acid ratios signal the brain that a huge amount of food has been consumed. As a result metabolic rate jumps dramatically leaving nothing to burn except that stored fat on your abs since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.*

Two per day training sessions

Increased training frequency is a powerful tool for improving insulin sensitivity. When schedules allow on weekends for example we suggest clients execute two exercise sessions 4 to 6 hours apart. This could be weight training at 10 am and interval sprints at 4 pm on the same day. In certain cases we may use two interval sessions or two weight training sessions on the same day depending on the client needs and goals. The objective is not to drastically increase the training volume. Both sessions will be kept between 30 and 40 minutes and this can only be done a couple days per week in most cases. *

We understand that time to exercise comes at a premium so you can use creative ideas to train. For example performing an explosive medicine ball throw workout which includes interval sprints. This training session supports awesome six pack development and body fat loss in the backyard with several family members at one time.*

Customized macronutrient cycling solutions

Poor sleep and elevated stress levels being in place for a month or longer means that your insulin sensitivity is not going to be optimized overnight. This status will make you much more sensitivity to carbohydrate and certain saturated fats, however you cannot resort to a generic low carb diet for longer than 2 weeks before it gets stale.*

Poor insulin sensitivity causes bad reactions to high carb intake

We make use of macronutrient cycling with dietary fat and carbohydrate at the right times to boost metabolism, anabolic hormones and fat burning enzymes. While implementing these concepts are complex from a design stand point, we make it very easy to execute by including dietary fat and carb loading days strategically matched with tough training sessions to fuel anabolism and raw materials needs. You must take Alpha Omega M3 with all meals to optimize insulin sensitivity and drive raw materials into hungry muscles instead of fat cells.*

6 Station Great Body Challenge

Spring weather has arrived so now is time to work harder and much smarter than ever before to earn a great body. Three action packed weight training sessions taking forty minutes or less plus two thirty minute interval sessions per week continues to deliver excellent results for our female and male clients.*

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

  • Optimize fat burning hormones throughout the week*
  • Fire up metabolism*
  • Improve athletic conditioning*
  • Advanced muscle growth adjustment tactics for men*
  • Boost strength and work capacity*
  • Prevent overtraining with sessions under forty minutes*
  • Support a competitive training environment with friends and family*

Peaking rates of Fat Burning

The road to time efficient fat burning involves six exercises in a row with minimal rest between sets. We start with three chest pressing movements followed immediately by three vertical pulling back movements. The short rest periods combined with challenging weight loads and controlled rep speeds increase lactic acid which is a precursor to the mega powerful fat burning tool- Growth Hormone.*

Pumping out the last few tough reps supports elevated fat burning

Lactic acid increases the burning sensation within muscles that makes many people consider quitting before tough sets are completed. The level of effort applied, measured by training performance has a huge impact on the rates of fat burning. GCX10 key ingredient ATP has demonstrated the ability to improve the amount of weight load and quality reps per set.(2)  Increasing the work load has a tremendously positive impact on fat burning.*

 

6 Station Training

6 Station Training Improves Pull Up performance by opening up the chest muscles and stimulating the nervous system. 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder sipped before, during and Immediately after training are the perfect investment to improve body composition and performance even with short rest periods.  The scientifically engineered amino acid ratios developed by Dr. Eric Serrano MD can increase the burning of stored fat as fuel during training and lay the raw material foundation for accelerated muscle repair.*

Short training sessions can decrease belly fat

The short rest periods also allows trainees to accomplish many productive sets during a forty minute workout. Sessions under forty minutes can help to minimize the elevated stress hormone response to training. High stress hormone levels waste muscle and increase belly fat deposition. 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder sipped before, during and immediately after training help to increase the utilization of stored fat as fuel during training while keeping stress hormones in check according to years of Dr. Serrano’s patient hormonal blood work reviews.*

 

6 Station Training is Great for Women
GCX10 attacks stubborn and visceral fat with the proven amounts of key ingredient Lactoferrin.(1)  Glycine included in the GCX10 can improve mental focus and reduce anxiety during training.*

More work and less rest to optimize fat burning hormones

The muscles involved in the three chest pressing movements get a break while the back muscles are engaged during the next three exercises. The brain which controls strength levels likes this type of arrangement and actually helps to increase the rate of neurological recovery between sets.*

The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis special ingredient ratios accelerate the rate of muscle recovery between sets significantly. As a result you will have the ability to use more challenging weight loads with controlled rep speeds for the second and third revolutions while keeping rest periods short.*

Multi Stage Fat Burning Sprints

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Dr. Serrano and Scott I have seen many of your client transformation pictures over the years so you must be doing something right. What cardio systems do you recommend to maximize body fat loss? I am 18% body fat measured by calipers and have never been able to get to 12%. I increased the amount of cardio to an hour 4 times per week and I think I am getting the “Skinny Fat” look. James Milwaukee.

Dr. Serrano’s literature research and extensive patient experimentation has led us to use a three stage system which is highly effective for body fat loss as well as conditioning. The key to success is depleting glycogen (stored carbohydrate) so that the body can burn more stored fat as fuel during subsequent stages of the interval session. We call the final stage of the session the Afterburner- just like a fighter jet your body will be burning fuel- in this case stored fat at very high rates.*

We have seen many clients significantly improve their rate of fat loss with two to three interval sessions per week that are 30 minutes or less including warm up. The leaner the client- the greater the importance of the program design to include multiple venues and interval strategies.*

Do Not Get “Skinny Fat”

James we do not recommend cardio in the traditional sense of the word for someone with your situation and goals. Steady state cardio is not effective for body fat loss and can actually increase stubborn fat deposition by spiking stress hormones. We reviewed your pictures and caliper tests which reveal that you have lost muscle over time while your stubborn fat sites including the love handles and abdominal have climbed. This indicates a catabolic hormonal trend which requires strategic changes to your weight training and nutrition plan to rebuild your fat burning engine.*

 

The proprietary blends of ingredients within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder force the body to use more stored fat as fuel during training while protecting hard earned muscle.
The proprietary blends of ingredients scientifically engineered by Dr. Serrano within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder force the body to use more stored fat as fuel during training while protecting hard earned muscle.*

Interval Sprints for Fat Burning

We use a variety of interval sprinting programs to maximize body fat loss based on individual client needs. 18% body fat is by no means “fat” the average American male who is in what most would consider good shape is probably well above 20%. You want to get to 12% and this will require a focused effort with an emphasis of quality over quantity. A personalized weight training, nutrition and interval plan can get you down to 12% in a 12 week period or less with the right quality and consistency of execution. “Cardio” is a common area where trainees are cancelling out the good work they are doing with weight training and diet.*

Warm Up

First we suggest a warm up such as a quarter mile jog to break a sweat and prepare the muscles for high performance. A dynamic warm up is very important for complex activities such as sprinting on a track or other functional venues. Venues such as a recumbent bike, stair climber elliptical etc. do not require a dynamic warm up in most cases.*

 

InfinityFitness.com personalized programs
Earn your ideal body with personalized weight training, interval sprint and nutrition programs built for your needs.*

Glycogen Depletion Sprints

A series of high intensity sprints with relatively short active rest periods in between are performed to deplete muscle glycogen. The body has many safe guards in place to store glycogen in case of emergencies even when someone is consuming a low carb diet. Interval sprints fire up metabolism through several critical pathways and elevate rates of fat burning for many hours following the session.*

5-10 sets

50 yard sprints on a track or grass

30 to 45 seconds rest between sprints

Sprint Intensity Redefined

A sprint in our opinion is 95% effort which is a much higher work output than what people are accustom. The explosive medicine ball throw and interval sprint session video of Dr. Serrano drew a lot of comments from viewers who gained a new perspective regarding high levels of effort. It is human nature to make ourselves think we are working very hard physically, when in actuality we are not.*

Performance benchmarks such as running 100 yards in 12 to 15 seconds should be put into place to drive greater rates of fat burning over time. It will take time to build your intensity levels and you should consult your doctor before starting an interval program to ensure there are no medical conflicts*

Boost Peak Power and Endurance

GCX10  Physique and Performance Enhancer taken 30 minutes before intervals or weight training has a huge impact on peak power as well as strength endurance. The high dosage of ATP supports higher quality sprints which in turn boosts fat burning hormones. ATP also helps to sustain a high level of performance through several rounds of interval sprints which will enable you to pack more high quality work into a relatively short period of time. Lactoferrin attacks visceral and stubborn fat while glycine improves mental focus without the use of stimulants.*

Ideal venues for your needs

A customized approach to interval sprint plans is ideal to handle all of the details and to build progressions each week to drive faster rates of body fat loss. For example our clients may use a combination of venues during the same session such as sprinting combined with explosive medicine ball throws for functional core work. Many of our clients in warm climates like many pool venues which offer great challenges. Just like weight training there must be the right plan in place to maximize your progress.*

Other venues include a weight loaded sled, jump roping, battle ropes, cycling, rowing, hill runs, ice skating and more. A large variety of venues helps to prevent staleness. Many different venues can be done at home if you have the will power. A lack of time is no excuse especially when you get rid of the travel time to the gym.*

Turn On Your Afterburners

Following the sprints is the time to turn on the after burners just like a fighter jet to torch an incredible amount of stored fat as fuel. Immediately following the sprints run ½ to 1 mile total in a set period of time such as 10 to 12 minutes.

Keep sessions short

It is human nature to want to improve faster by adding more work. However in this case due to the delicate balance of hormonal factors a longer after burning session can be counterproductive. You do not want stress hormones associated with muscle wasting and body fat deposition to rise with a longer session.

Two-A-Days on Weekends

Clients seeking very fast rates of body fat loss to prepare for a wedding, vacation or business event for example may perform several short interval sessions over the course of a week to increase their rate of fat burning. The schedule may be very busy which limits training on certain days of the week. Implementing a morning and afternoon interval session on a weekend day for example works very well when the correct program is put into place and adjusted based on client performance and recovery rates.*

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis can increase the utilization of stored fat as fuel.

The proprietary blends of ingredients within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder force the body to use more stored fat as fuel during training while protecting hard earned muscle. The higher the quality of your sprinting performance- the faster your fat burning progress will be earned. 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis taken before and after your sessions will improve recovery of the muscles as well as the nervous system to prevent the brutal soreness that will otherwise preventing you from doing more than 1 interval session per week.*

Advanced muscle growth tactics

Warning: This material is for hardcore trainees motivated to maximize muscle growth and body fat loss at the same time.  Discover how to stimulate a greater number of fresh muscle fibers to grow with short rest periods and immediate nutrient supply*

BY: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Super charging muscle growth starts with “damaging” muscle fibers so they will regrow to be larger during the recovery process.  The muscle recovery process starts immediately following the set with the right building blocks available in the blood stream. *

Short rest periods exposes more muscle fibers for growth

20 seconds rest between the 45 degree incline press and the 3o degree incline press allows fewer muscle fibers to recover between sets in comparison to a 60 second rest period.    As a result the 30 degree incline press can “damage” a different portion of muscles fibers than usual.  Another 20 second break before the flat dumbbell press creates even more fresh muscle fiber exposure during this final phase of the three movement complex. *

The perfect muscle growth opportunity

Stimulating a greater number of muscle fibers combined with the right recovery conditions will support accelerated muscle growth.  This is one of the many reasons why sipping the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis during the training session is so important for high performance and muscle growth.  The proprietary ratios Dr. Serrano developed are delivered immediately to muscles super charge growth.*

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis for a Great Body

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder provide the specific muscle building block nutrient ratios to be delivered to working muscles during the training session.    Extra raw materials not being used by the muscles to grow provide a powerful energy source especially when the carbohydrate intake is low.*

Never quit on a set if you want a great physique

The plan was to get five reps for each of the chest pressing stations with 100 pound dumbbells.  By the time we reached the third revolution our muscles were screaming and we knew failure was likely at some point.  Thinking ahead we arranged 75 pound dumbbells nearby that we could grab after getting three of the five planned reps for example. Completing the set with the two well executed reps is a key difference maker between earning average and great results.*

Do not be afraid to fail during a set

Sticking with the same weight loads you have been using for years is a huge mistake.  The objective should be to gradually increase weight loads with proper form every week.  A training partner can provide assistance during a set to increase confidence levels while moving up to higher weight loads.   If you fail, just finish the set with a weight load.*

Picking the right weight loads

We consider client training experience, muscle fiber type dominance, conditioning levels and more before recommending how much clients should reduce weight loads to complete the listed reps per set.*

 

6 Station Training Advanced Strategies
GCX10 is a heat seeking muscle growth and fat burning missile without stimulants.*

Cranking out the quality reps for more muscle

Completing the last few reps of challenging sets create an excellent muscle growth opportunity.  4-8 GCX1o capsules taken 30 minutes before training has made a huge impact on weight loads and the number of reps our clients can crank out with perfect form.  The right ATP ingredient quality and amounts per serving have proven in research settings to boost peak power and strength endurance.(2)  We have observed the same great performance improves which have created awesome rates of muscle growth for our clients over the last several years.*

Rest between revolutions

Following the first revolution of six exercises even the most well-conditioned of trainees will be fatigued.  Take three to four minutes before staring the second revolution to catch your breath.  Sipping on the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis during this break will prepare your muscles and nervous system for the challenges to come.

Weighted pull ups are for the Alpha Males

Strapping and extra 25, 45 or even 100 pounds to a dip belt for pull ups is no joke.  This movement requires serious attention to detail and a qualified spotter to support proper execution and safety.  There is no shame in starting with five or ten pounds and gradually moving up the load.  The load can be reduced or completely removed to finish a set just like we described above.

Firm Legs and Razor Sharp Core

Earn firm legs, functional strength and a razor sharp core with rear leg elevated lunge variations.  Uncover your six pack by improving core muscle development and lowering body fat levels with advanced tactics.

By: Dr. Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Well-designed lower body training offers a fantastic opportunity to improve body composition and functional strength. The firm legs and razor sharp core training program below is designed to accelerate fat burning for both men and women by maximizing the release of fat burning hormones. Many strategic changes can be made to the plan for those who want to gain muscle while losing body fat. Specific tactics can also be applied to the program to support elite level competition performance. Executing the right nutrition and recovery strategies for individual needs as well as goals are also keys to success.*

The importance of strategic variety

Experienced trainees must understand that the maturity of their nervous system due to years of training require the correct stimuli to earn new progress. The second, third and fourth videos within the playlist will be of great interest to experienced trainees due to their advanced tactical content.*

Functional core training

Dr. Serrano and Scott H. Mendelson demonstrate several rear leg elevated lunge variations and protocols. Each movement and tactic demonstrated requires the core muscles to actively engage throughout the exercise as nature intended. Holding a dumbbell in only one hand requires the core to work much harder compared to holding a dumbbell in each hand. Direct core work does play a role with six pack development, but a missing element for many trainees is functional core work built into their upper and lower body training sessions.*

 

Functional Core Training
A great six pack requires intense execution of the right training tactics. Accelerating recovery with the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder reduces muscle soreness while improving performance and the burning of stored fat as fuel during training.  Functional workouts such as boxing engage core muscles as nature intended.*

Eating “Clean” is not enough to earn a low body fat percentage

Eating “clean” will only take you so far. Simple to execute macronutrient cycling strategies force the body to burn more stored fat as fuel, increase fat burning enzymes and naturally optimize fat burning hormones. Examples include carbohydrate and dietary fat loading at specific times each week. We pick the right macronutrient cycling plans based on the client goals and current conditions which can vary widely.*

Body fat percentage evaluations

As you get leaner it becomes harder to burn body fat for many reasons. The systems used to get from 20% body fat to 15% body fat may not work to help you go from 15% to 10%. As conditions change we modify the tactics according to client personal needs to support their ongoing success.*

Earn great beach abs with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder
Taken between meals and around training the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis proprietary ratios make the brain believe a massive amount of food has been consumed.  As a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.*

Accelerate recovery and reduce soreness

One of the reason many trainees provide less attention or avoid lower training altogether is due to the muscles soreness experienced during the following days. High levels of intensity during training are correlated with both soreness and faster progress. 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis can help you minimize soreness during the days following training while enhancing fat burning.  The proprietary blend of ingredients also helps to avoid bloating and allergic reactions associated with many food sources including protein powders.*

Scientifically engineered fat burning and recovery

Dr. Serrano scientifically engineered the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis ratios to bypass digestive hang ups so the crucial raw materials can be delivered to hard working muscles, before, during and immediately after training. The ideal ingredient ratios are quickly recognized by the muscles to accelerate the repair process.*

67 Pounds lost over 3 months

I have lost 67 pounds Over The Last 3 Months

“I am not a fitness model. I do not work out every day. I am not obsessed with my scale. I did however get to a point where my weight became a serious problem. Upon completion of my annual health screening for work, my employer calculated my BMI. I was expecting to hear that I was in the “obese” category again, but instead of writing “obese,” the worker wrote, “Make your peace with God.”

As inappropriate as this was, it shocked me into the realization that I needed to make a change. I began adding cardiovascular exercise to my diet 3 times a week, improved my diet (less sugar, more vegetables), started drinking water, added a multi-vitamin and added Alpha Omega M3.

Diet and exercise has always been a struggle for me, but I feel like my metabolism has improved substantially. I no longer crave sweets and feel more satisfied longer after meals. I have lost 67 pounds over the last 3 months, went down 8 sizes and my BMI has dropped 11 points. I have a long way to go, but I have hope that I will reach my goals and am so happy to have found Alpha Omega M3 to help me in my journey.”*

Fat Cell Cleansing Protocol

Optimize fat cell function to burn stubborn belly and leg fat

Dr. Serrano and Scott, what are the best ways to kick start fat loss for a guy like me who is highly stressed working long hours?  Every time things get tough at work or home it seems my belly grows over night.  My wife has the same problem except she holds the fat in the lower body.  I would give anything just to have a six pack and my wife refuses to wear a bathing suit even though she looks great except for a few trouble spots.  Gary  San Antonio TX

By: Dr. Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Cleanse Fat Cells
Kick Start Fat Burning by optimize fat cell raw material levels as well as the hormonal environment with the Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10 proprietary formulas.*

Optimize fat cell function to increase utilization of stored fat as fuel

Fat Cells have two settings much like a vacuum cleaner.  They can be stuck on suck up mode to grab everything available in the blood stream to build up fat storage levels for the dreaded swollen look just like the vacuum bag.  Or the reverse setting to kick out as much stored garbage as possible to be metabolized as fuel.  You can do most things right with diet and exercise and still not experience much success if the fat cells are not operating correctly for a number of reasons. The fat cell cleansing protocol belowhas been highly effective for our male and female clients. *

Fat Cell Cleansing Protocol

Men

First 2 weeks:      9-12 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

Weeks 3 and 4:    6-9 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

Weeks 5 and 6:    6 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

4 GCX10 Capsules 30 minutes before exercise to attack stubborn and visceral fat while improving peak power as well as strength endurance. Non-training days 4 GCX10 first thing in the morning. *

Women

First 2 weeks:     9 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

Weeks 3 and 4:   6 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

Weeks 5 and 6:   6 Alpha Omega M3 daily split over meals.

4 GCX10 Capsules 30 minutes before exercise to attack stubborn and visceral fat while improving peak power as well as strength endurance. Non-training days 4 GCX10 first thing in the morning. *

Shut off fat storage receptors

Personalized weight training, interval training and nutrition programs are absolutely critical for accelerating success especially for someone with high stress levels. There are just too many details for people to figure out on their own. The right exercise and nutrition strategies have a huge impact on the rate of physique improvement progress. Stressed people are very sensitive to carbohydrate intake since stress hormones negatively impact insulin sensitivity.  As a result, the metabolic environment is primed to store carbs as new body fat instead of burning them as fuel. Training volume must also be kept in check due to the negative impact elevated stress hormones have on recovery. Even the slightest program refinements emphasizing intensity over volume are crucial to your success. *

 

GCX10 supports a great 6 Pack
Attack Stubborn and Visceral Fat With GCX10 Physique and Performance Enhancer.*

A Ground-Breaking 8 week study published in the British Journal of Medicine during 2010 demonstrated that daily intake of Lactoferrin produced a significant decrease in visceral fat and total body fat.  The group using Lactoferrin lost an average of 1.79 inches of body fat from their waist while the control group lost only .35 inches over the same time period. (1)*

Belly Fat Burning Published Research

The GCX10 proprietary ingredient blend includes more Lactoferrin in 4 capsules than what was used in the study to improve client belly fat burning.*

GCX10 is an advanced weapon designed to attack extremely stubborn and visceral fat without the use of stimulants. Research shows that key GCX10 ingredient Lactoferrin interferes with the accumulation of stored fat in cells, prevents the formation of new fat cells and increases the utilization of stored fat to be burned as fuel. Lactoferrin GCX10 which includes a proprietary ratio of Lactoferrin, Glycine and ATP that should be taken pre training to increase peak power and power endurance- leading to double the rate of muscle growth based on published ATP research studies. (2)*

 

Shut off fat storage receptors
Women have a high density of fat storage receptors within the buttocks and thighs that must be shut off to chip away at stored fat in those areas. Men have a higher concentration of fat storage receptors around the mid-section and must take measures to optimize the hormonal environment to burn stored fat.

Optimize fat burning hormones

The hormonal environment typical of a high stress situation including poor sleep quality must be addressed by shutting off the receptors driving fat storage which for men are plentiful in the abdominal region. Women have a higher density of fat storage receptors in the buttocks and thighs while some will also store in the mid section as well. A traditional approach of low caloric intake and a high volume of exercise will not solve the problem; in most cases it makes things much worse.*

Cleansing the fat cell

There are many misconceptions about body fat- it is made up of billions of fat cells, some we are born with and others created by bad food choices such as corn oil used in frying and trans fats within a countless number of packaged goods you have consumed over your life time. Trans fats were designed to extend shelf life and to lower the fat intake on food labels leading consumers to believe items are “diet friendly” choices. Nothing could be further from the truth as in actuality these fake fats are very hard to get rid of. Doughnuts you consumed years ago and last week have left a trail of bad materials that you must clean up to restore proper fat cell function. Otherwise progress will be painfully slow. *

 

Alpha Omega M3 Cleanses Fat Cells
“There is no shortage of stressed patients in my practice and Alpha Omega M3 is a required tool for all of them. In addition to the great fat burning impact related to the carefully designed ratios of essential fats I have also found that clients may experience improved mood, less anxiety, fewer cravings for bad food choices and generally deal better with stressful situations.” * Eric Serrano MD Columbus Ohio

Binging on the wrong foods causes long term damage

Highly stressed people often binge and their sources are typically highly refined foods which have tons of fat storing attributes, but the trouble does not end there. The leftover toxins, trans fats etc. lodge in the fat cells forcing an unwanted expansion and inhibit the use of stored materials as fuel. The best way to get these cells back into fat burning mode is to purge the garbage with a high dosage of Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10 to not only change the raw material landscape, but to also optimize the hormonal environment– limiting the fat storing impact of stress. Optimizing insulin sensitivity can stop hunger and cravings in their tracks. Getting rid of the greatest barriers to success should be a top priority.*

Burn down the fat cell warehouse

Once you have a large warehouse of fat cells your capacity to store body fat is greatly increased forever. You can manipulate cell size by making them collectively shrink and that is how we lower body fat levels. Furthermore, fill fat cells with their desired essential fatty acid materials found in Alpha Omega M3 clinically developed proprietary ratios and this cements a powerful barrier to future body fat accumulation even when diet is less than perfect for stretches of time.*

Infinityfitness.com personalized training and nutrition programs
Clients with ideal fat burning muscle levels can even spend a significant amount of time off a perfect diet without gaining body fat due to their superior metabolic and fat burning hormone levels.  Optimizing the status of the fat cell is a key to long term success making every day of proper nutrition and exercise pay off to earn the fastest possible rate of progress.*
Staying lean

Imagine the satisfaction of earning your dream body and a long term strategy for how to keep it for good! One of the greatest compliments we can get from a consult client is when they tell us they never thought staying lean and fit would be so manageable. A key to prolonged success is rotating the emphasis of both training and nutrition with a customized approach to keep metabolism, hormones and other key factors fresh. So many fall into the trap of chasing fat loss forever without considering the laws of diminishing returns or the value new muscle will have in the war of winning their ultimate goal physique.*

The right dietary fats from food

Be aware that commercially raised animals store toxins and other bad substances in their fat stores which can transition into your fat cells. Commercially raised cows for example are fed grain and given hormonal treatments to make them fatter for a higher price at auction.

Grass fed beef benefits

Consuming organically raised protein sources including grass fed beef and wild caught fish/seafood provide an ideal ratio of dietary fats for the body to utilize. Good dietary fat sources such as Alpha Omega M3, extra-virgin olive oil from a dark bottle or can, avocados, cage free whole eggs, raw nuts, coconut oil and other items also play a very important role in the proper nutrition plan structure.

Rose Freeman Testimonial- 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Success

“I have been using naturally flavored 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder for about a year now off the recommendation of a friend who knew I was looking for clean products which supported fat loss and recovery. I was certain I wanted to steer clear of products with stimulants in them and this criteria can be difficult to satisfy when it comes to training supplements.

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis powder accelerate recovery

Although my body fat was fairly low at 17%. I was keen to explore how I could reduce body fat levels without significantly increasing my training.  (as I was already training 8-10 hours per week of high intensity such as CrossFit and Gymnastics, alongside my corporate day job).

Pre and Post workout success

I became aware of both internal and external changes immediately once I started taking the products for pre and post workouts. I had significant increased energy during workouts which meant I was able to push myself harder to achieve better results from a performance perspective.  Similarly, my body was recovering more efficiently after training.

Improved definition

Externally, I was becoming leaner and I started to see the definition I was working towards. My body fat is now at around 12.5%, which I am happy with and the products enable me to maintain this alongside increased energy to maintain the training that I love to endure.

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis improve performance

I am confident that MR 100% and Muscle Synthesis helped me to achieve my training goals, however in my own personal experience they have been most effective alongside consistent and intense training programs, rather than the products alone doing the work. So if you enjoy rigorous training, and want clean and effective products, I would highly recommend you integrate these into your routine.”*  Rose Freeman Business Bay Crossfit, Dubai 03/27/2016

Dr. Serrano scientifically engineered the ratios of ingredients within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis support increased utilization of stored fat as fuel while laying the raw material foundation for accelerated muscle growth.*

Advanced arm training

Where does your current training routine come from? Was the plan built for your needs and goals by a skilled professional? How long has it been in use?  Old workouts should never be repeated as they become stale over time and may not match the current recovery conditions.  Going into the gym without the right plan will leave you short of your goals.*

Consistency and high quality of execution drive success

Significant rates of body composition improvement are earned when consistently executing the correct techniques for a client’s individual needs and goals. We have a broad base of clients ranging from beginners to the highly advanced.  In all cases the longer the client has been training- the greater the need for innovative training techniques to provide fresh stimuli. The Blast Pause training routine below serves as an example of one of the many dozens of training techniques we customize for client needs.*

Dietary Fat Spiking to Bust Fat Loss Plateaus

When is the last time you made a strategic improvement to your nutrition plan? Just like training the nutrition plan must improve strategically to prevent plateaus.

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson   www.infinityfitness.com

How to Burn 15-20 pounds of body fat

My husband and I did pretty well with fat burning during January even though we have very high levels of stress.  Our progress has completely stalled by the middle of February even though we are doing everything exactly the same with our diets and training.  What can we do to get fat loss going again? We both need to lose 15-20 pounds of body fat for Spring Break.   Jenny and Michael.

Jenny the nutrition plan must change strategically at least twice per week to prevent fat loss plateaus.  You and Michael can burn off the 15-20 pounds of fat from all of the right places if you use the correct strategies.  The body gets very bored easily and requires the right changes to optimize fat burning.

A high carb meal is rarely the best answer

The first thing that comes to mind for many people is to add a bunch of carbohydrate at certain times to boost metabolism.  A high carb intake is typically not the answer especially for someone who is very carbohydrate sensitive due to high stress levels.  Dietary fat spiking increases fat burning enzymes, prevents metabolic staleness and naturally optimizes fat burning hormones.

Dietary Fat Loading boosts fat burning enzymes so the body can burn more stored fat as fuel.

Fat Reduce FBO5 Busts Stubborn FatFat Reduce FBO5 Busts Stubborn Fat by optimizing the metabolic and hormonal environments.*

Fat burning enzymes help to liberate stored fat to be burned as fuel and are significantly elevated in response to an increase of good dietary fat consumption.*

Enzyme levels can remain elevated for several days following the fat loading meal even though dietary fat intake returns to normal the same day.  As a result stored fat becomes the preferred target for fat burning enzymes which are activity seeking work.*

Clients report the following benefits in addition to overall fat burning following Dietary Fat Loading.

  • Decreased Stubborn Fat*
  • Mobilizes More Stored Fat to be Burned as Fuel*
  • Provides a Great Mental “Lift”*
  • Reduced Joint Pain*
  • Improved Exercise Performance*
  • Fewer cravings for bad food choices*
  • Elevated Sex Drive*
  • Improved Hair, Skin and Nail quality*
  • Steady daily energy levels*
  • Improved Omega 3 index*

Eating “clean” is not enough to earn a low body fat % and a razor sharp set of abs!

Anyone who thinks they can use the same basic nutrition plan for months at a time to reach a low body fat % without sacrificing hard earned muscle and killing energy levels is dead wrong.*

After four to six weeks of following the same nutrition plan the metabolism begins to slow and many important fat burning pathways become sluggish out of boredom. This is one of the many reasons why very few people make progress beyond the first 8-12 weeks of a fat loss effort and end up re accumulating body fat. Those who gradually lower calories and use a high volume of cardiovascular exercise will hit plateaus while damaging to their metabolic rate.*

Dietary Fat Loading
Dietary Fat Loading boosts fat burning enzymes so the body can burn more stored fat as fuel.

Dietary fat loading is part of the Ground Breaking Macronutrient Cycling System designed to burn body fat efficiently without plateaus while setting the stage to keep low body fat levels for the long term. There are dozens of proven macronutrient cycling protocols that we put into place based on client individual needs and goals. If you want to earn a low body fat % while feeling great you must look beyond failed tactics of the past.*

Increase your BURN RATE!

Increasing your dietary fat intake from good sources is proven to elevate the number of calories burned daily. This is especially important for those who are suffering from a sluggish metabolism from extended periods of dieting, overtraining and high stress levels. Fat Reduce FBO5 has worked fantastically well to increase the rates of fat burning for our clients over the years through many proven pathways including increasing metabolism.

30 of Dr. Serrano’s patients took part in a 30 day Fat Reduce FBO5 trial which demonstrated an average increase of over four hundred calories per day in metabolic expenditure without any changes to diet or exercise.*

Fat Reduce Day Time FBO5 for Fat Loss and balanced energy

Extensive hormonal blood work tests were performed before and again after the trial to measure the beneficial changes of specific success markers.  Half of the patients were women and their average daily caloric expenditure was well over four hundred which showed that they benefited more than men in that particular category. The overall fat burning results from the trial were outstanding especially around stubborn areas such as the abdomen, love handles, lower back, buttocks and legs.*

You Are KILLING Your Fat Loss Progress with a Low Fat Intake

Your nutrition records indicate that your dietary fat intake is way too low! Well under 15% of daily food intake. Increasing your good dietary fat sources such as organic meats, wild caught fish, cage free eggs, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, and avocados will increase metabolism, fat burning enzymes and fat burning hormones dramatically.  Alpha Omega M3 will provide a proprietary blend of essential fatty acid materials to force billions of fat cells to use more stored fat as fuel*

100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Burn Fat and Build Muscle Fast

“I went from 16% body fat on January 1 to just over 5% on April 15 without losing any lean muscle. I have been using the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder  and Alpha Omega M3 daily to get after my goals! 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis fuel very intense training sessions and my recovery rate between workouts is incredible!”*
Rob W 4/19/2015

High Stress = High Belly Fat

Your low fat intake and elevated stress levels has likely contributed to poor insulin sensitivity which means the body can over release the potent fat storage hormone insulin every time you eat. Dr. Serrano designed the Alpha Omega M3 to deliver the exact raw material ratios necessary to optimize insulin sensitivity which is critical for efficient fat burning.*

Let Them Eat Steak

Not only are we going to increase your dietary fat intake from the right sources daily, but we are also going to use Fat Spiking meals a couple times per week to send your fat burning enzymes through the roof. A large meal consisting of grass fed steak, avocado salad with extra virgin olive oil consumed following your weight training sessions twice per week forces the body to drastically increase fat burning enzyme activity to properly digest the meal. Your total dietary fat intake on these 2 days will be much higher than the other 5 days of the week.*

Ignite Your Fat Burning Wild Fire

Fat burning enzyme levels will be significantly elevated for several days following the fat spiking meal. The enzymes will go to work as a stored fat burning wildfire since your dietary fat intake is back to normal on the other 5 days of the week. The distinctly different metabolic patterns that take shape during a 7 day week keep the nutrition stimuli very fresh which helps to increase fat burning through several fat burning pathways without running into plateaus.*

24 HD Fat Loss Weight Training System

24 Training Optimizes Fat Burning Hormones Part 1

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Rotating 4 different exercises as part of a giant set allows certain muscles to rest while others are working to the max.  This will enable you to use very short rest periods between sets while performing at a high level.  Great performance, extended set duration and short rest periods combine to naturally optimize fat burning hormone levels during sessions that are 45 minutes or less.  The burning feeling you feel within your muscles while working hard is a signal that lactic acid levels are climbing.  Lactic acid is a precursor to growth hormone which is one of the most potent natural fat burning hormones.*

24 HD Fat Loss Weight Training System

Picture Spring Break with your dream body. The vision of achievement brings satisfaction, great pride and a strong source of motivation. Harness this motivation to make your dreams into reality by working hard and smart. You must use the right weight training, interval sprint and nutrition strategy to support your success. Some people may only need small physique refinements to reach their goals. Most people have a more significant distance to travel before earning their dream body.*

Fat burning weight training video agenda

  1. Scott H. Mendelson will explain how to determine the best weight load for each exercise.
  2. A giant set which includes 4 exercises are all done at 1 station which is great for crowded gyms.
  3. We will demonstrate the proper form and repetition speed.
  4. An advanced version of the 24 HD system will be demonstrated in the video directly following.
  5. The 24 HD plan will not cause women to accidentally gain unwanted muscle.

Accelerate fat burning and recovery rates with 100% MR + Muscle synthesis

Using the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis powder before, during and after sessions accelerates recovery between sets, improves performance and increases the utilization of stored fat as fuel.  Dr. Serrano spent many years perfecting the proprietary amino acid ratios based on hormonal blood work analysis, muscle biopsies, published research, performance reviews and extensive patient body composition testing.  This powerful combo buffers lactic acid levels; allowing trainees to push beyond normal discomfort thresholds to optimize fat burning hormones even higher.*

High density fat loss training strategies

This is the perfect time to take a fresh weight training approach to support your body transformation success.  Do not go back to old generic programs just because they are easy for you to remember.   Break out of your comfort zone and take action with strategic changes.   Training to earn your dream body requires the use of tactics to burn a large volume of calories and to more importantly- to naturally boost fat burning hormones for 24 to 48 hours following each session. Dusting off your old generic plans may burn some calories, but after a couple of weeks the body will stop responding.*

Train harder and smarter to achieve your goals

Lacking the right plan when you enter the gym is a waste of time.  Sure you will burn some calories and you may “maintain” what you have, but progress will be painfully slow or could even move in the wrong direction.  Over the years countless numbers of experienced trainees have signed up for personalized programs and earned more progress during the 12 week phase than the previous 2 to 3 years combined.   We match the ideal weight training, interval sprint and nutrition strategies to their specific needs with completely fresh tactics.   Program refinements are made based on client progress and feedback to prevent plateaus.*

Improving your weekly performance drives up fat burning hormones

Your objective each week should be to increase the weight loads while executing the proper form, repetition speeds and rest periods.  Yes this is the case for both men and women even if the goal is not to gain muscle.  Gaining muscle is not easy and does not happen by accident without a diet geared specifically to muscle growth in place.*

Proven Fat Burning Strategies

Burn 10-20 Pounds of Body Fat 

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Training Quality over Quantity for Fat Burning

Great weather can bring high levels of motivation, but are you really applying a high level of effort to the right training routine for your needs each or just going through the motions like most people in the gym?  Training sessions should include strategic challenges to make you work harder, but not longer each session to drive up fat burning hormones. *

Do not be afraid to call your habits and execution into question so problems can be fixed before another Spring and Summer slips away.*

What Is your Plan and Does it Work?

Most people under estimate the value of the nutrition, training, supplementation, and recovery plans, thinking hard work alone will enable them to reach their goals.  Just take a look in any gym across the nation from 5 to 7 pm every day and you will find numerous people busting their butts for lousy progress.  90% or more of the average people going to the gym make little to know progress over time as their strategies do not fit their needs.  There is no shortage of people working hard, but very few work hard and SMART to maximize their success.*

“Exercising and training hard has always been a part of my lifestyle. But with the customized nutritional consultation plan and supplements (100% MR, Muscle Synthesis Powder, Alpha Omega M3 and GCX10 ) from infinity fitness I have seen better results and faster progress than ever before. In six weeks I’ve lost 11 pounds, over 4% of my body fat, and have seen drastic improvements in my strength, endurance, and overall performance in the gym. As I continue to set new fitness goals, I will definitely keep using infinity fitness to reach them.”*

Maximizing the rate of fat burning

Your Rate of Physique Transformation will depend on the proper execution of many factors including weight training, interval sprints, supplementation, rest, and stress management amongst others.  You cannot optimize metabolism or fat burning hormones without all of the key elements working together on a consistent basis. *

The smartest path to losing 10-20 pounds of body fat is a Personalized training and nutrition program.  Check out the picture of my client Jason above to see the kind of results my clients earn on regular basis!*

Eating “Clean” is Not Enough to Earn a Low Body Fat Level

I wish I had a penny for every time someone told me they were just going to eat “clean” to lose body fat.  There is much more to the success equation.  The amount of food, protein, dietary fat and carbohydrate ratios, food combinations, timing and more must all be manipulated to improve the burning of stored fat as fuel.  Our nutrition plans are so advanced that they are simple to execute!  You cannot eat the same foods all of the time and rely only on lowering calories to consistently lose body fat.*

Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis can build a Dream Body.
Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis can build a Dream Body.

Those who cannot take the customized route can use the KISS Fat Loss Nutrition program as it is highly effective and extremely easy to execute.  The KISS program includes many advanced tactics including macronutrient cycling, modified fasting and more to drive efficient body fat loss.*

             Redefining intensity

I personally review consultation client weight training workout data every two to four weeks and based on years of experience I know what people are capable of doing.  In many cases I must help clients redefine the intensity of their workouts to improve fat loss. Yes intensity is partially measured by gradually increasing weight loads, but we do so while executing perfect form, tempo (Repeition Speed) while keeping to the strict rest periods.*

The details are very important and you must make the body work gradually harder over the course of a 6 week plan to maximize fat burning benefits.  You must take advantage of the nervous system to maximize your work output while keeping rest periods very short.  This is not just mind over matter in the gym.  The 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder can increase your work capacity while increasing the utilization of stored fat as fuel and allow for a much higher training output leading to a big increase in fat burning hormones.  Putting out this type of effort several times per week requires the recovery benefits of the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis to avoid over training.*

Holding Yourself Accountable with The Success Calendar

I developed the Success Calendar as a simple method for clients to track the quality and consistency of their execution in a simple format.  You can get a free copy of the Success Calendar by emailing Scott@infinityfitness.com.

You simply score specific tasks such as training, nutrition, rest and supplementation with a 1, 2 or a 3 on a daily basis.  This enables you to look back at a period of a month to see how well you did with your execution.  My clients who score over 90% earn great rates of progress.  Those over 95% are the ones make miraculous improvements.*

Be patient and good progress will be earned

Keep in mind that it takes time to earn the body of your dreams and for most people the entire mission cannot be accomplished overnight.  Your body fat problems did not transpire overnight, so they will resolve instantly either!  You can earn much faster progress during months 2 and 3 of a properly designed plan in comparison to month 1 as it takes time to build metabolic and hormonal momentum.*

Making the grade

How consistently are you executing your program?

5 days out of 7 you are perfect with diet and let it slide on the weekends?   That will not be good enough for significant fat loss.  Keep in mind that losing 10-20 pounds of body fat is not an easy task and requires a great effort.  However when losing body fat the right way by optimizing metabolism and hormone levels: you are more likely to maintain your success.  Unfortunately a large percentage of the general public who loses body fat re accumulates the lost body fat within a short period time due to using the wrong tactics.*

Maintaining body fat loss is much easier than burning it off fast, allowing for much more freedom with the diet during the maintenance periods.  Yes to maximize your fat loss progress you will need to make some sacrifices, however it is only for a short period of time.*

You make it the gym most of the time, but some training sessions are at a higher quality than others?  Missing training sessions and poor effort levels will not “cut it”!  Every training session is an opportunity to improve your physique!  Confidence in your plan will fuel the high levels of effort needed for productive body transformation.*

Proprietary amino acid formulas maximize success

Proprietary Ratios of Amino Acids based on many years of Dr. Serrano’s success patient research within the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder optimize fat burning.  Our clients are able to take a very aggressive approach to fat loss without sacrificing muscle.   We use Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis around training and between meals to increase rates of fat burning, protect lean muscle, optimize recovery, improve energy and destroy cravings for bad food choices.*

Taken between meals the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis make the brain believe a massive amount of food has been consumed.  As a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.  This leaves only body fat to be burned by a raging metabolism.  Placing a scoop of each between meals a couple times per day will have a huge impact on energy levels; this will help to control your mid afternoon slump while accelerating fat burning and recovery.*

Do not Let Stress get in the Way of your Fat Loss Goals!

Fat Reduce FBO5 for Significant Fat Loss and balanced Energy

Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time was recently reformulated based on new findings in scientific literature and Dr. Serrano’s patient experimentation. Hormones govern body composition progress and when they get out of whack for a variety of reasons such as high stress and poor sleep they form a huge barrier to success despite perfect diet and training! Dr. Serrano determined an exact ratio of ingredients within the Fat Reduce FBO5 to optimize the hormonal environment for body fat loss, high energy, and improved performance following thousands of patient blood work reviews.*

Convert your body into a fat burning machine

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Learn how to structure a nutrition plan to transition the body to using stored fat as a preferred fuel source instead of carbohydrate. It takes eleven to seventeen days to convert the body into a fat burning machine.

Dietary fat loading benefits

Increasing the good dietary fat intake from organic provides strategic variety for the metabolism and drastically increases fat burning enzyme levels.*

 

Dietary Fat Loading

Maximize your progress with a 12 week personalized weight training, interval sprint and nutrition plan.

Fat burning enzymes help to liberate stored fat to be burned as fuel and are readily elevated in response to an increase of good dietary fat consumption.*

Enzyme levels can remain elevated for several days following the fat loading meal even though dietary fat intake returns to normal the same day.  As a result stored fat becomes the preferred target for fat burning enzymes which are activity seeking work.*

Clients have also reported the following benefits in addition to substantial fat burning following Dietary Fat Loading.

  • Decreased Stubborn Fat*
  • Reduced Joint Pain*
  • Improved Exercise Performance*
  • Fewer cravings for bad food choices*
  • Elevated Sex Drive*
  • Improved Hair, Skin and Nail quality*
  • Steady daily energy levels*
  • Improved Omega 3 index*

Carbohydrate loading during a post workout meal can improve insulin sensitivity.  Insulin is the most potent fat storage hormone and if your insulin sensitivity is poor for a number of reasons you will spend too much time stuck in super fat storage mode.*

Naturally optimizing fat burning hormone levels which is crucial not only for fat burning but also high daily energy levels.  We do not suggest using simple carbohydrate sources or refined foods as a part of a carbohydrate loading strategy.  Plans that advocate the “eat anything you want for a few hours” philosophy are not scientifically sound or effective.  Rather they attract people by telling them what they want to hear.*

  • Post weight training carbohydrate teaches the body to burn fat in many ways and increases fat burning enzymatic activity.*
  • Helps to optimize thyroid levels naturally which is a key hormonal marker for fat burning and daily energy.*
  • Lowers cortisol levels which otherwise stimulate stubborn fat accumulation and muscle wasting.*

 Stubborn belly fat solutions

It is very common for belly fat to be very stubborn based on a number of factors for men and women.  Women may also have difficulty with lower body stubborn fat.  Both scenarios are related to the density of fat storage receptors in those areas as well as hormonal conditions.*

24 HD Fat Loss Weight Training System Part 2

24 HD Fat Loss Weight Training System Advanced Strategies

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott H. Mendelson

Advanced and experienced trainees require more frequent strategic changes due to the maturity of their nervous system. We alter the number of reps, sets, rep speeds, rest periods, grip, rep executions and more every two to three weeks to keep the body progressing at an excellent rate.  Increasing the strategic challenges involved with interval training including venues, sprint interval timing, and resistance are also crucial. Going into the gym without the right plan for your needs is simply wasting your time and effort.

B4.Chest supported NG Row383-1-1-260

 

The 1 ¼ rep executions demonstrated in the 24 HD advanced training video is just the tip of the iceberg in regards to tactics we have available to accelerate client body transformations.*

GCX10 Physique and Performance Enhancer

 GCX10 physique and performance enhancer changes the game

GCX10 physique and performance enhancer taken 30 minutes before training gives serious trainees the ability to push their performance to the limit while attacking stubborn body fat.   The proprietary GCX10 contains an even higher amount of ATP used in a 2013 published research study which demonstrated doubling strength increases of the 1 rep max of the squat and dead lift over 12 weeks vs. the control group.* (2)

The participants using ATP also gained nearly twice the amount of lean muscle tissue over the 12 week study while showing fewer signs of fatigued during higher volume training phases.*

Attack visceral fat

A Ground Breaking 8 week study published in the British Journal of Medicine during 2010 demonstrated that daily intake of Lactoferrin produced a significant decrease in visceral fat and total body fat.  The group using Lactoferrin lost an average of 1.79 inches of body fat from their waist while the control group lost only .35 inches over the same time period. (1)  The GCX10 proprietary ingredient blend includes more Lactoferrin in 4 capsules than what was used in the study to improve client belly fat burning!*

A set lasting 36 seconds will feel like an eternity

Following a couple warm up sets pick a weight load you can do for 6 reps with the proper form and repetition speed. Each rep is going to last 6 seconds based on the speed of reps assigned making each set last a total of 36 seconds. The 36 seconds is going to feel like an eternity with a challenging weight load as most sets last less than 20 seconds based on years of our observations in commercial gyms.  Bring a stop watch to the gym to enforce the proper length of sets and rest periods.

Finding the right time under tension length

Advanced clients can progress to sets closer to 60 seconds after building a base of strength endurance. Individual trainees have different muscle fiber type dominance which help to determine the best training methods for their needs. Athletes with an endurance body type will do better with longer set durations. A natural sprinter needs higher loading with set lengths around 40 seconds.

Weekly load increases accelerate fat burning

I can promise you based on 15 years of experience working with successful transformation clients that your training performance will have a huge impact on your rate of fat burning success.  Improving your performance each session over the course of a six week plan is absolutely crucial for maximizing the release of fat burning hormones.   The body thrives on performance improvement and readily adapts when using the same weight loads, exercises and other factors over and over again.

24 HD Fat Loss Advanced Training System

 

Gain muscle and lose body fat at the same time

This may come as a shock to traditionalists, but for most trainees using more sets and lower rep ranges to allow for higher loading are the keys to adding muscle while losing body fat. In this case we could use four giant set revolutions with six reps per set to support the higher loading necessary to stimulate fast twitch muscle fibers.  Fast twitch muscle fibers have the greatest potential for growth.*

Firm Legs and a Razor Sharp Core part 2

Self training assessments, advanced core training tips, full leg training routine and more.

By: Eric Serrano MD and Scott Mendelson

A huge fat burning opportunity

Keep in mind that the lower body represents half or more of the total body musculature which means great fat burning opportunities are available with every well planned session. Large muscle group stimulation can support increased calorie burning and more importantly elevate several fat burning pathways for 24 to 48 hours following well designed training sessions.*

Advanced core conditioning

A significant percentage of new clients that come our way are seriously lacking with leg strength in comparison to their upper body for a variety of reasons. Improving the lower body training quality has a huge impact on body composition and performance. Upper body progress can also accelerate as a lagging lower body can limit development due to the body’s functional balance priorities. The nervous system can shut off upper body development when the lower body is lagging to avoid being too top heavy.*

 

Sprinting for Functional Core Development
Sprinting for Functional Core Development

How do your legs measure up?

A rear leg elevated lunge is a great progress measurement tool because it provides a baseline of lower body and core strength at the same time. Balancing throughout the movement provides strategic challenge necessary to improve performance, body composition and to reduce the likelihood of injury. Training exclusively on machines is a mistake for multiple reasons including a loss of coordination. Always training both legs at the same time can also lead to one leg becoming significantly stronger than other which can have a negative impact on training form and function.*

Self-assessment tools

Here are some questions we may ask 12 week personalized training and nutrition program clients so that the right program refinements can be made to support excellent client progress.

Are both legs able to achieve the same range of motion?

Have a training partner check to see if you are able to get to a parallel position on bottom with both legs.

Commonly one leg may not be able to do down as far as the other which indicates areas of opportunity to improve.

Does the torso maintain the correct position when performing the exercise on either leg?

Weakness may force the torso to lean forward or to tilt to one side more than the other.

Is one leg significantly stronger than the other measured by the weight load, the number of properly performed reps, repetition speeds and lengths of strategic pauses?

Female fat burning advantages

Ladies do not buy into the myth that lower body training will make you gain unwanted muscle.  Programs that are properly designed to support fat burning will differ greatly from bodybuilding trainees.  A key to success is arranging several leg exercises into a superset which alternates the movements with short periods to support the maximal production of fat burning hormones.  Firm glutes, hamstrings and thighs are earned by developing the muscles properly.*

Warm up perform 10 to 15 minutes of general activity to break a sweat. Perform at least 2 practice sets for each exercise using the parameters listed for the work sets below.

^ Advanced trainees can accelerate their progress by applying a special treatment to the final rep of each set. During the final rep go up ¼ of the way from the bottom position and hold for 15 seconds while maintaining proper torso and lower body positions. The dumbbell can be dropped on the floor in a responsible manner during this phase to reduce loading. Make sure the dumbbells will not strike anyone else in the gym before dropping.

We use many advanced execution variations depending on the client individual needs and goals. Get the most out of every training session by utilizing fresh training stimuli.
