Differing goals requires shifts in emphasis
There are six disciplines, six separate aspects that combine to create the bodybuilding template: nutrition, weight training, aerobics, supplementation, rest and recovery. Some experts combine rest and recovery and consider them as one discipline. At Parrillo Performance the thinking is that rest and recovery should be treated as separate issues: rest can be handled by resting, sleeping, napping, etc. Recovery is positively affected by resting and it is also positively impacted by nutrition and modulations in training. All six of the component parts of bodybuilding need to be included and accounted for in any successful bodybuilding game plan. In the Parrillo approach to bodybuilding there is actually a seventh regularly reoccurring aspect to the bodybuilding template: fascial stretching. This unique protocol enables the bodybuilder to use intense stretching to dramatically increase muscle size, this while accelerating recovery and improving flexibility. If you consider yourself a bodybuilder, if you seek bodybuilding-type results from your fitness efforts, all of the bodybuilding component parts need be present and practiced. If any one component is absent, results will be substandard. At Parrillo Performance, establishing specific bodybuilding goals is considered critical. Once you have a defined goal, place the goal into a timeframe. Work backwards to a current starting point: each week moving forward, take a step closer towards the ultimate goal. Bodybuilders always need to be working towards a goal and generally speaking, there are three bodybuilding goals…
• Add lean muscle mass: select a specific timeframe (usually 6-12 weeks) and direct all training efforts and all nutritional efforts towards acquiring lean muscle mass – without adding an unacceptable amount of body fat.
• Reduce body fat: select a specific timeframe (usually 6-12 weeks) and direct all training efforts and all nutritional efforts towards a reduction of body fat – without losing an unacceptable amount of muscle mass during the diet process.
• Add muscle, reduce body fat, do so simultaneously: the highest form of the bodybuilding art occurs when the elite bodybuilder attains a metabolic sweet spot. When training, nutrition and recovery are in perfect balance, muscle can be built while fat is being burned.
