Powertec acquires the brand of Muscle Dynamics, including Maxicam

Long Beach, CA (19th Jun, 2015) Powertec, a leader in Plate-Loaded Home Gyms, acquired most of the intellectual property of Muscle Dynamics, including, but not limited to, the Maxicam & Muscle Dynamics brands & designs of the Dynamax line from Oscar Leon, President & CEO of Muscle Dynamics, for an undisclosed sum.

Muscle Dynamics was started in 1971 to build anatomically correct fitness machines that would last a lifetime of use. For almost 45 years, the Maxicam branded machines have been used in hard-core gyms such as Gold’s Gym & World Gym to mainstream gyms like Bally Total Fitness & 24 Hour Fitness.

The acquisition will solidify Powertec’s presence in the light commercial & specialty gym marketplace. Powertec’s President, Wayne Lee, said, “We have been interested in solidifying our position in specialty gyms as we have in specialty retail. This acquisition allows us to take the ergonomic designs of Maxicam & integrate it into our ability to manufacture high quality products at a price point that will be interesting to the specialty local gyms competing against the larger membership chains.”

The FOUR STEPS to a Great Physique

 

The FOUR STEPS to a Great Physique

By: Ian Lauer CSCS

The key to creating your ideal body starts in your head.  You first must determine what it is you desire to create.  Once you know that then you must KNOW you WILL get there.  Once you have mastered those first two MOST IMPORTANT steps, the rest is just tried and true repetition.  What is it that you must repeat?  You must repeatedly eat clean meals with only the OCCASIONAL Cheat Meal AND you must workout REPEATEDLY.

 

It really is that simple to create the physique you have always wanted.  Then why don’t more people attain their ideal body?  That is the result of a breakdown in any of the previously mentioned steps.  First they may not have decided WHAT TYPE OF BODY they want.  If one week they are preparing for a marathon, the next a Powerlifting meet and the next month a Tough-Mudder run  their body is going to be so confused that it won’t have a chance to achieve ANYTHING noteworthy.  Once the desired body is solidified it becomes much easier to create it.  Knowing what body you are looking to create is like having the blueprints when you start building a house.  You know what you are going to build so gathering material and formulating a plan become easy. 

 

Let’s assume that step is in place and they know their desired body.  If they know the body they want but don’t believe they can achieve it, they are yet again defeated.  We are EITHER our own worst enemy or best friend when it comes to achieving greatness.  This is because the mind is so incredibly powerful.  Once a person sets their mind to achieving a goal, in most cases, they will find a way to reach that goal so long as it is even somewhat reasonable.  The most important part of this step is TRULY BELIEVING YOU WILL SUCCEED.  Once you know you will succeed the next two steps become easy.

 

EATING CLEAN is not rocket science.  Many dietitians or nutritionists would have you believe it is however.  Sure, having an exact handle on your macros and caloric breakdowns can be beneficial; but, too often people get discouraged by all the “Science.”  It’s really simple if you want it to be. 

 

BASIC EATING GUIDELINES:

Eat 6 times a day

3-4 meals (roughly 300-500 calories each) Female-Male respectively

2-3 snacks (roughly 100-200 calories each) Female-Male respectively

Have a protein source with each meal/snack

                Drink 1-1.5 gallons of water a day

                Don’t drink liquid calories such as soda, juice, etc.

 

Once you get on track with basic clean eating you’ll be fueling your body appropriately and prepped for the results you are looking for with your training.  What does that training look like?  Again, we need to keep it simple.  If you get too caught up in the latest craze you can easily miss the boat that has worked for tons of people for years…weight training.  Weight training with consistency has consistently given great results.  If you’re reading this article, chances are pretty good you already know the many benefits of weight training so I won’t bore you with details.  Sufficed to say, the most important part of weight training is doing it consistently.  Some will say that dumbbells or barbells or machines or bands or manual resistance or bodyweight is best…don’t worry yourself with all the mumbo jumbo.  Instead focus on knowing that when you get consistent with a resistance training program YOU WILL GET RESULTS.

 

There are a number of different pieces of equipment you can choose from to get the body you want.  As a matter of fact POWERTEC offers a multitude of options themselves.  You have everything you need to train your entire body with any of the following pieces:

 

  • LEVERGYM
  • MULTISYSTEM
  • FUNCTIONAL TRAINER
  • COMPACT GYM
  • FULL RACK with Lat Tower
  • HALF RACK with Lat Tower
  • ROLLER SMITH with Lat Tower

 

All of these pieces offer enormous weight capacity and gym quality movements.  This means you will WANT TO WORKOUT on YOUR Powertec Equipment.  Nothing is worse than a shaky shotty piece of equipment.  With Powertec you know you are getting heavy duty equipment for home use.

What does all this mean to you?  You will have the ability to do ALL of the exercises necessary to build your ultimate physique on any of the mentioned POWERTEC pieces of equipment.  Additionally, what I really like about POWERTEC is the ability to add on later.  This means if at some point in the future you decide you want to pick up some accessories for additional specialty exercises you have that option!  Examples of these would be accessories such at the Preacher Curl/Row, Pec Fly, Leg Press, Leg Extension/Curl, etc.  And again…you can add these on later!  The choice is yours to make.  Pick the piece that works for your spatial needs and get to work knowing YOU WILL arrive at your desired destination if you follow these FOUR SIMPLE STEPS!

 

1. Decide on the body you want

2. Know you Will Achieve it

3. Eat Clean

4. Workout with Weights Consistently

Are you looking to create your best physique ever?  If you’re reading this chances are pretty good that your answer is a resounding YES!  The good news is that you have come to the right place.  The bad news is that it doesn’t happen overnight and it won’t be easy.  But then again, anything worth accomplishing never is.  Over the years I imagine you have read a slew of workouts and most likely tried a multitude of them.  Changing up your workouts on occasion when you feel you have reached a plateau is a good way to bust through and reach new heights.   That’s what this workout is all about.

 

In the majority of workouts you are focusing on a certain number of reps and sets.  That’s a fine way to workout.   As a matter of fact, the majority of my personal workouts are based on certain rep ranges.  But, on occasion I like to focus on “The Clock.”  You may be asking, “What does that mean?”  I’m eluding to the old concept of “TUT” AKA: “Time Under Tension” combined with “Intensity.”  As a review, TUT means the Time Your Muscle is Under Tension during any given set.  When I say INTENSITY, I’m talking about moving from set to set without wasted time.  You will quickly see that you find yourself working harder and more intensely through the entire workout and during every set when you do this.

 

So, where does the “Ripped in 60 + 30” come into play?  Well, as mentioned before we are combining TUT with INTENSITY and the 60 + 30 are the time periods for each respectively.  In other words, you will be cranking out reps for 60 seconds at a time followed by 30 seconds of rest before the next set and so on and so forth.  The goal for this “Ripped in 60 + 30” workout is a 2:1 Work to Rest ratio.  This is opposite of the Work to Rest ratio of many workouts which are typically more in the range of 1:2-1:5 featuring more Rest than Work.

 

Be aware that when you start a workout such as this you will be forced to use less weight than you would typically use.  This is a result of the temporary muscle fatigue that happens.  We are essentially forcing the body to utilize different energy systems that don’t put out the same kind of power as those that readily recharge and available when you take longer rest periods.  Don’t let this bum you out!  Be aware that at this point you are challenging your body in a slightly different way that will lead to dramatic new results.

 

Your muscle pump and ensuing workout when hitting the Ripped in 60 + 30 is going to be ridiculous.  You will probably notice an increase in appetite.  This is telling you that your metabolism is increasing.  You will also probably notice an increase in post workout muscle soreness.  This too is telling you that your workout has challenged you in a new way.  To top it off you will notice you will be breathing much heavier than usual during your session.  This is the result of the additional work your cardiovascular system is facing in the workout.  All of these are good things and will help you get closer and closer to your target body.

 

You’re probably wondering how long these workouts are and what they look like?  Let’s address question number one first.  For every exercise you will perform FOUR SETS.  That means each exercise is FOUR MINUTES of TUT and a total of TWO MINUTES REST totaling SIX MINUTES TOTAL PER EXERCISE.  In any given workout we will hit FIVE EXERCISES.  The resulting total time is THIRTY MINUTES PER WORKOUT.  You may be thinking, “Thirty minutes isn’t long enough.”  Well I have some news for you…if you stick to “The Clock” strictly you will be amazed at the workout you get in just 30 minutes!  You will get a thorough Weight Training AND Cardiovascular workout in.  I should say that this workout is not about developing your peak strength.  This workout is about getting YOU Ripped!

 

ProNOTE: You can use this training concept with any piece of POWERTEC training equipment.

 

Now that you know what the program is about and understand it’ basic concept, let’s take a look at a specific example of the “RIPPED in 60 + 30” on the POWERTEC Levergym.

The Ultimate Beach Body Workout

   Ultimate Beach Body Workout

With the POWERTEC Levergym

ultimate beach body workout
 
Ultimate Beach Body Workout is not as challenging as dance combos .If you are familiar with the POWERTEC line then you are aware of their commitment to helping you develop to your peak potential in the areas of Strength and Athletic Performance.  What you may not have associated with POWERTEC to this point is their line’s ability to help you reach your aesthetic potential.  You ask, “What is ‘aesthetic potential?’” Simply put, creating YOUR BEST LOOKING BODY possible.  Let’s be honest, we ALL want to look great.  Sure, getting stronger and performing better applies to many people out there; however, wanting to LOOK OUR BEST applies to everyone.  When do people think about looking their best the most?  Summer time…also known as Beach Season is when people really think long and hard about looking their best.  Why do you think everyone and their mother in the fitness business has some sort of a “Beach Body” program?  That’s because in the end we all want to look great as if we are ready to hit the ultimate beach body workout and turn heads.  
 
Many companies have programs out there that will help you shed some weight and reveal some lean muscle which is great.  The problem though is that few focus on ADDING LEAN mass in the process.  Putting on GOOD MUSCLE is often sacrificed in many of the “BEACH STYLE” programs in lieu of just burning calories to cut fat.  The result is a body that looks better in the short term; however, it is highly possible that muscle is being lost along the way as well.  This ends up producing a reduction in the base metabolic rate from the loss of calorie incinerating muscle.  The end result can vary from person to person, but my worry is in the long run that these trainees become “skinny-fat.”  Rather than risk that I prefer to focus on solid strength training routines with adjusted reps, sets and splits to maximize fat loss while maintaining and even gaining lean mass.  The end result is the ULTIMATE BEACH BODY that YOU CAN MAINTAIN.
 
“How does one change the reps, sets and splits to achieve the Ultimate Beach Body?”  The key lies in working during MORE of your workout.  Frequently we rest for fairly long periods between sets.  This is ok when working to put on as much size or strength as possible.  But, when we want to add SOME lean mass and SHED FAT we need to focus on that which will help us lose that pesky adipose tissue.  We do that with SHORTER REST and MORE REPS.  The result is WORKING DURING MORE OF YOUR WORKOUT.  This means leaving the cell phone in the other room and not watching TV during the workout.  The focus must be on MOVEMENT.  Movement during the exercise and Movement from one exercise in a very quick fashion to the next is imperative.  To help make this as doable and effective as possible it is a good idea to use the SUPERSET concept.  When “Supersetting” we work on two or more different exercises in immediate succession.  
 
For example: Three Supersets of Incline Bench Press, Low Cable Row, Calf Raise looks as follows:
 
1. Incline Bench Press
2. Low Cable Row
3. Calf Raise
4. Incline Bench Press
5. Low Cable Row
6. Calf Raise
7. Incline Bench Press
8. Low Cable Row
9. Calf Raise
 
As mentioned before the key is moving from one exercise directly into the next and so forth.  It is a good idea to use exercises in each set that are not working the same muscle group for this type of workout. This allows you to go through the routine and with as little rest as possible for the duration of the session.  This keeps your body rolling and metabolism revved for the entirety of the workout.  In this style of training we are essentially getting a great strength routine and simultaneously getting in a cardiovascular session.
 
When it comes to reps and sets, working with 15-25 reps per set in a total of 3 sets will yield the results for which you are looking.  Beyond the reps and sets you will also want to consider how many body parts you will be training in a given workout.  Training anywhere from 2-4 body parts per workout is ideal for this type of workout.  Occasionally a Full-Body workout can be beneficial as well to really spike the metabolism.  As for how many days per week will be necessary for this style of training: That depends on how many body parts per day you decide to hit; but, I will say that four sessions per week will work incredibly well with this kind of training.
 
If you have stuck with me through all of the explanation, thank you for your attention!  So without any further ado let’s take a look at a sample ULTIMATE BEACH BODY PROGRAM on the POWERTEC Levergym.

Interview with Powertec Brand Ambassador Mehmet Edip

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself? Did you play any sports growing up?

I am 29 years old and currently reside in London. As well as being a fitness model I am also a commercial model and have recently started acting.

Growing up I wasn’t really that sporty and I picked up my first set of dumbells at the age of 15 and after that I never looked back.

2. How long have you been training? Why did you decide to compete?

I have been training for 14 years now and I’m not really sure why I originally started to compete. If I’m honest competing was a way of justifying to myself why I was training. My first show was in 2008 and I have competed in 8 shows in total

3. Any plans to compete again in the future? If so, where can we expect to see you compete next?

I am hoping to compete again next year but I am still undecided as to where and when.

 4. What specific workout routines work best for you?

I alternate my workout on a regular basis as I tend to get bored easily and I like to listen to my body so I don’t have have a specific workout to be honest

5. What is your typical diet regimen like? What are some of the most important foods in your diet?

I generally always eat clean and my carb consumption is generally very low. I am very keen on lean meat such as chicken and turkey

6. Do you take any supplements? If so, what do you use and why?

I currently use Gaspari Superpump Max, size on Anavite and myofusion.

7. How was your first contest experience like? Can you tell us about the competition and the training that lead up to it?

My first show was a nerve wracking experience as I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The silly things like having to wax my whole body and the fake tan was an interesting experience I didn’t quite expect to have so many problems with, but overall it was an amazing experience and the buzz from being on stage is one that got me hooked on competing. I honestly don’t expect what my training was like leading up to that show but I do remember my after show feast -pizza and chocolate! That was a great end to a long day

8. You’ve been published in magazines such as Muscle and Fitness and Ultra Fit Magazine. How did you prepare yourself for them?

I always prepare for shoots like I would do for a show so if I know about the shoot in advance I would diet for it in advance and focus on weight training that brings out the details in your body. I would also increase my cardio and reduce my calorie intake in order to get ripped accordingly and I’ve recently started carb load prior to shoots in order to make my muscles look fuller

9. Has dieting and staying lean been easy for you or was it something you have to work hard on?

Nothing in life is easy but if your regimented and disciplined enough then anything is possible. I would like to think that being organised with my training and strict with my diet is what has really helped me.

10. What is it like to become a sponsored athlete for Gaspari Nutrition?

I am currently a Gasapri Nutrition UK advocate and it is a privilege and an honour to represent such a prestigious brand and one which is led by such a trailblazer in the industry such as Rich Gaspari. I am hoping to one day become a fully sponsored athlete with Gaspari.

11. We heard you are also an actor. Can you tell us more about your acting roles? Which shows have you appeared in?

I have only just recently ventured into the acting arena and have done a lot of supporting artiste work for numerous BBC tv shows in the UK. I have also appeared in commercials for brands such as Heinz, Febreeze, and Hardees chicken wraps.

12. What the best training tips would you give for someone who wants to get ripped?

You cannot get ripped without a clean diet and cardio, best tip – reduce the calories and increase the cardio.

13. What upcoming projects are you currently working on?

All will be revealed soon ….. 🙂

 14. Any shout outs?

Obviously I would like to thank Powertec for this opportunity and also to Gaspari nutrition UK and also to my beautiful girlfriend for her continued support

15. Where can we find you on the Internet?
