The last 3 or 4 reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.

The Muscle Building Summit will be broken down into 8 Phases


You will learn how to approach muscle building by setting a blueprint for training that is specific to your body type, needs and gender. Women and men have different goals when it comes to shaping their bodies. Think of it this way; whether you are building a house or an office building, you will need a foundation but the foundations for each of these is different. PHASE 1 is key to establishing the right foundation and mindset for goals that are specific to you.


To suggest that a 240 lb. man and a 115 Lb. woman can eat the same way to achieve optimal muscle growth is exactly the “one size fits all approach” that causes failure; not “rep” failure, but the wrong kind of failure. Are the macronutrient needs of a man and woman the same? Do they synthesize protein the same way? Caloric and macronutrient intake for muscle building are vastly different from weight loss or maintenance protocols. PHASE 2 will help you set a baseline for what your caloric and macronutrient amounts should be in order to maximize muscle building.


The textbook definition of periodization is "the progressive cycling of various aspects of a training program during a specific period." Think about it; if you gain even one pound of muscle, almost EVERYTHING you are doing needs to change on order to keep progressing. When your body goes through any changes, you become a different version of “you.” This means your nutrition and training needs will require tweaking. Sound complicated? Only if you don’t have the right information. The good news is that the Muscle Building Summit experts will make it easy for you to understand what to do in every stage of your training.

PHASE 4 - Micronutrients and Metabolism

Now that we have established your basic nutritional needs for muscle building, the micronutrients need to be addressed. Or do they? Do things like: fluoride, selenium, sodium, iodine, copper and zinc, matter in building muscle? What about vitamins C, A, D, E, K, and the B-complex vitamins? Our experts will teach you which micronutrients to focus on and also which supplements you should be taking in order to optimize muscle building, as well as the ones that don’t do anything at all!

What about metabolism, the master engine? Thyroid, BMR and the like have a profound effect on muscle building. Can you really stoke your metabolism? Learn how to determine if your metabolism is damaged and how to repair it!


Pack on the muscle you want in the fastest way possible by focusing on the right exercises, the ones that are essential for building muscle. Are these the same for men and women? What order should they be done in? Learn about building a balanced physique so that muscles work in a proportionate way for optimal results. Of course, when you put in the time and effort, you also want a body that is aesthetically appealing, with great symmetry. For men, this might be the tapered V look, sporting a massive, powerful chest and narrow waist. A woman’s goals may differ, some are not looking for “size”, as much as a toned and sleek physique; maybe leaner legs, a leaner butt, a “bubble butt” etc. Our experts will focus on the exercises from their own experience which they call “the essentials.”


Depending on where you are in your muscle building goals, whether you should use a total body or split routine going forward can have a “make or break” effect on your progress. Our experts will teach you how and when to set up your training as a split or total body, whether to train for size and hypertrophy, endurance, strength and definition etc… How many sets, how much weight, how many reps? Should women train and eat differently than men?


What happens when the results stop coming? They always do! Your body needs to be “forced” beyond it’s sticking point and “shocked” into growth. But there is a proper way to shock the body and a host of “plateau busting hacks” the Muscle Building Summit experts know and they are spilling all their little secrets.

Don’t get stuck! Get “un-stuck” with the information only the elites know.


Everyone has strengths and areas of challenge in their various muscle groups. You may have an east time putting size on your chest, but biceps are much slower to grow. Since by Phase 7 we know you have the information you need to train and eat for maximum muscle building, it may come down to mother nature and genetics. Learn how to go after your areas of challenge with structured “weak point” training.

Experts delve into hot trending areas and exploratory advanced techniques such as occlusion training, resetting circadian rhythms to create optimal conditions for muscle building, bio-hacking and more.

How to Stay Motivated and on Track When Life Gets Crazy and Results are Slow!

Non emotional data is one of the measures of progress Mario Tomic uses with his clients in order to stay on track when the results are not coming as fast as we would like them to. We are surrounded by images of so called “inspiration” that in fact do very little, if anything at all, to get us of the couch and to the gym.

Mario teaches us how self-judgment is a far more data based and effective motivational tool that comparison. Your “why” may change over time and no longer be good enough to motivate you. Stay motivated based on factual progress, not your emotions.

Mario Tomic

Optimal and Reasonable Expectations for
Muscle Development

Or is there a specific way to divide the intake?

Jump expands the conversation to include overall caloric intake and timing.

Juma covers this and much more in this intensely focused Muscle Building Exclusive interview.

Muscle Building Training and Nutrition for Diabetics

Insulin, metabolism, sugar, what can a fitness committed diabetic do?

Phil Graham knows exactly what to do!

The ability to gain muscle is highly specific to an individual’s genetics, baseline hormone levels and day to day activity. Many of these factors change as we age, reducing our capacity to gain muscle as we age. In other words, Muscle mass increases as we age up until a certain point.

Uncontrolled diabetes is a state of undernutrition. Lack of insulin reduces the body’s ability to utilise nutrients (fuel) properly.

If nutrients can’t get into cells performance (stimulus) and recovery will be negatively affected limiting muscle growth. Hyperglycemia increases muscle protein breakdown and limits the protein synthesis – the process of creating new proteins. On the other hand, hypoglycemia steals energy and mental focus making training difficult and in many cases dangerous

Phil suffers from Type 1 Diabetes and spends a considerable amount of time helping other people living with diabetes overcome obstacles and get the most out of life, especially when it comes to fitness, muscle building and fat loss

Controlling Muscle Growth Through Protein Synthesis

Since protein synthesis is such key factors in hypertrophy, can these be used to in essence control muscle growth, when complemented with proper training? Can we meal plan in a specific way so as to bolster such control? Since there is breakdown that occurs in the muscle tissue, is it possible to minimize this but maximize the synthesis at the same time?

Joseph Agu addresses teaches us how to plan our food intake to best control our muscle growth though protein synthesis.

The Only Body Type, is No Body Type - Master Session

Entire fitness industries have been created on the premise that there are 3-4 body types. What if there are not 3 body types, but only one, or none at all?

How do you define someone who perhaps has a hypothyroid issue and stores fat with their muscle gain, whose condition through some means is reversed and his/her thyroid normalizes. Because of this new shift in their ability to gain muscle, do we now identify them by another one of those 3 classifications, or are they classed as something else altogether?

What happens to reps, nutrition? Do you drag those classic body type definitions into your “trash” icon?

Dr. Michael Israetel challenges the status quo in this thought provoking Muscle Building exclusive interview.
