Why Football?

Because it’s badass and involves short spurts of intense exercise and rest. Sound familiar? That’s High Intensity Interval Training, but unlike traditional HIIT, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t contemplate suicide during this workout. HIIT has been shown to be one of the most effective kinds of workout possible – scorching calories, melting fat and revving up your metabolism for hours after the workout ends. So come throw the ball around with us and melt that fat away.

为什么玩橄榄球呢?

因为橄榄球对于我们是一种极棒的锻炼与放松相结合的运动形式。是不是听着耳熟呢?这是一种高强度的伴随着放松的训练,但是也不同于传统的高强度间歇训练法。在活动中你可以获得非常多的乐趣而不是像别的高强度活动那样让人想自杀。高强度间歇训练法已向我们展示过是燃烧卡路里的一种非常有效的方法,当你完成了一场橄榄球活动获得的是脂肪的加速燃烧并且有利于身体的新陈代谢。所以快快加入我们吧,让脂肪远离你,欢乐环绕你!

THROWDOWN

Do you even lift? These fine athletes did at Beijing’s first official Crossfit Competition. Spirit was honored to provide some killer protein to these iron warriors

Of course we couldn’t let the athletes have all the fun, so we had a little pullup competition of our own…

Supplements.

They’re not just for pro athletes, they’re for anyone serious about maximizing their health and performance, anyone passionate about achieving their fitness goals. You wouldn’t drive a race car without motor oil, and you shouldn’t push your body without proper nutritional support. On this program you’ll be training hard, tearing muscle fibers, fatiguing your body and pushing your limits, so consider a boost with supplements that will keep you going and accelerate your recovery.
Can you make progress without supplements?
Absolutely. 
Can you drive a car with flat tires?
Absolutely.
I want to give my body everything it needs to maximize performance, that’s why when I’m trying to build muscle I use the following supplements to boost performance, accelerate recovery and maximize results.

Whey Protein:

Derived from milk, whey protein is embraced by athletes around the world for its performance benefits. Whey is a fast digesting protein that provides your body with the amino acids required to build new muscle tissue and protect existing tissue.

FUEL:

Fuel is a multi function recovery/gainer drink. We’re interested in both recovering faster, and making big gains. Containing around a 50/50 ratio of Whey Protein and fast digesting carbs, FUEL not only replenishes muscle glycogen, but also provides essential protein and BCAAs to support muscle growth.

Creatine:

One of the most popular supplements behind protein, Creatine is found in red meat and can increase muscle power, size and strength. There is extensive research proving the safety and effectiveness of creatine not only for muscle growth but also many other areas such as cognitive enhancement.

BCAAs:

A group of 3 essential amino acids found in foods such as chicken, beef, eggs and fish, BCAAs are building blocks of muscle protein that support lean muscle growth while providing a buffer of energy to prevent muscle breakdown during strenuous exercise.

L-Glutamine:

The most abundant free amino acid in the body and required for various important biological functions, such as the immune system. Glutamine can decrease muscle breakdown, increase muscle growth, boost recovery and immune function.

Fish Oil:

Fish Oil is one of the best sources for Omega 3 fatty acids, which have numerous benefits. Beyond cardiovascular, cognitive and joint health, these Omega 3s have also been proven to enhance lean muscle growth.

L-Carnitine:

Required for the transport of fatty acids into mitochondrial matrix for energy production, supplementing L-Carnitine can increase the rate at which fat is metabolized. This means not only leaner muscle tissue, but the extra energy can offset protein digestion, allowing for greater muscle gains from a given diet.

CLA:

A naturally occurring fatty acid found in red meats and dairy, CLA is involved in a number of signaling pathways within cells and can boost metabolism while inhibiting processes that cause fat storage in the cells.

How do I take these to maximize muscle growth?

This is an approximate schedule to take the supplements, I adjust the dosage and timing according to how my body feels. For example, if I miss a meal and start feeling hungry, I know there is some muscle breakdown occurring, so I’ll slam some FUEL as soon as possible to get some quick energy and spare the muscle. On non-workout days I skip the workout shake but take everything else, as I’m still recovering and feeding growing muscle tissue. The following supplements are color coded according to varying levels of experience and availability in SN’s Muscle Building Stacks.

Basic Stack – Black

Just the basics for anyone wanting to make some gains.

Pro Stack – Blue

Everything from the basic stack and more for those serious about packing on muscle.

Legend Stack – Red

Everything from the Pro Stack + CLA and L-Carnitine to stay as shredded as possible while you gain.

For this muscle building plan, we’ve put a lot of thought into making sure you gain the most muscle possible. We’ve made the system as simple and consistent as possible to make it easier for you to stick to. While the movements are the same through each phase, we’re going to change the rep range each week to keep your muscles on their feet and keep those gains coming. Commit to this challenge and show yourself what you’re made of.
There are three phases in the system, each of which is 4 weeks long. We’ll start out each phase in the 12-15 rep range with lower weights and work our way down to just 3-5 reps with some serious weight. This will allow your body some time to adjust to the movements as you work your way down to higher weights. In no time you’ll be romping around the gym looking for the 10th 45 plate to stack on your bench press for the 3-5 rep sets in week 4.  In phases 2 and 3 we’ll be doing the same cycle but this time with bigger, heavier weights. Sound repetitive? It is, and that’s because it works, just like breathing, eating, sleeping, or any other well designed process.  It will all crescendo on week 12, where you’ll lift the heaviest weights of your life and be 12 weeks closer to being a 型男。
The workouts will look like this:
  1. Bench Press
  2. Dumbbell Fly
  3. Military Press (Arnold Press)
  4. Lateral Raise
  5. Dips 3
  6. Triceps Cable Press/Skull Crusher
  1. Squat
  2. Deadlift
  3. Single Leg Press
  4. Leg Extension
  5. Standing Calf Raise
  6. Seated Calf Raise
  1. Wide Grip Lat Pulldown
  2. Seated Cable Row
  3. Reverse Pulldown– into biceps
  4. Barbell Curl
  5. Preacher Curl
  6. Cable Crunch 3, 2x
  7. Decline Oblique Situp 3, 2x
Each week we’ll change the rep range to surprise your muscles.
Week
