I had previously done MI40 and learned so much from that program that I didn’t think it was possible to outdo it. Wrong! I absolutely loved MI40X and am truly honored to have been one of the “chosen ones” to try it out before it is released to the public! I’ve been a NASM certified personal trainer for 6 years now and it just amazes me that despite how much fitness knowledge I possess, there is just SO MUCH more to be learned. MI40X included some techniques I had never tried in the past, such as the intra-set stretching, that really pushed me to new limits. Additionally, I had never dreamed of doing straight sets of 21 reps on heavy compound exercises like deadlifts, having typically done only lower reps of these exercises at the beginning of a workout. And the split designs in general were so different from my norm. Also, like everyone else I had my favorite go to exercises. This program pushed me to do exercises I normally avoided, like reverse grip pull-ups, which I have come to love.
As a result of all these elements, I believe I got well above-average gains for me, particularly when considering the short six-week timeframe. My upper body, and in particular my chest, really grew noticeably. I will without a doubt be doing this program again and feel confident that I will get even more out of it the second time around now that I have a good grasp of how much I can push my body.
