1" in 1 Day Workout: Info Anyone?
I'm highly suspicious of the claims made about this Muscletech workout, but I figure I am on vacation, I have some free time, and I'm nearing the end of my cycle. Does anyone have info on this 1" in 24 hours workout? I obviously don't expect to gain 1", but if I can gain 1/2" or even 1/3", it would still be worth trying.

What's that workout - do you have a link to it?
Hmm - is it something like 'run to the store, buy muscletech gear, carry it home... run to the store, buy muscletech gear,... repeat until you see desired results...'

its probably obscenely high volume and the result of a huge pump/tons of blood in the muscle .. would be gone in a few hours

officially an adult
No, I think it's where you do a whole lot of volume for your arms over the course of a day, right?
I remember reading about that in muscular develpoment (I think?) a couple of years ago. The guys that did it gained about 3/4 of an inch each. Now whether or not those gains last is unknown.

I read an article in M&F, it was high volume. I think they gained like 3/4" and a week later they still had about 1/4" according to the article. They did the w/o for 8 hours or something like that. Sounded like a super pump to me.

if it is the workout i'm thinking, it was developed by charles poliquin. he is a world renowned strength coach with alot of followers. i personally have never done the program, but it was originally published in "muscle media 2000". the results vary most that i have heard that about 1/2 is kept.

I don't have the link and I've been searching around for the workout. It sounds ridiculous, but I'd be willing to give it a try. It is an all-day affair, with very high volume. Big Pete told me he has a video from Muscletech where Mark Dugdale talks about it, but I've never seen the actual layout of the workout.

I remember a thread about this exact workout being discussed several months ago. I cannot find it now but the individuals that tried it did not see noticeable gains.
If I remember correctly, the routine also had nutrition guidelines to follow as well.

I've known people that have done these workouts before and it seemed to work for them. They didnt put on an inch, but my friend Don put on a good 1/4" doing one of those all day arm workouts. Its not actual new muscle growth, but an extreme stretching of the capillary bed from what i would gather. so it would give some cosmetic size. It probably only works once every few years, if even that i'd imagine. I've considered trying it before, but never got around to it. I remember my friend did light weight preacher curls, skull crushers, and dumbell curls, and did these exercises taking him about 10 mins, and then he would rest 30 mins, and go back at it again. All over the course of 8 hours. Before the workout he didn't lift for 2 days, and gave himself 3 days of recovery afterwards. He also packed in a **** storm of calories.

You have to be suspicious if MT is advocating it

Who care man? forget muscle tech! If i can gain an inch in one day, i dont care how much muscle tech i have to drink, even if turn into an instant diabetic and die on the spot.
1 INCH i think my arms are like 14 inches sadly.. id like a 6 inch in a day workout.. any ideas?
on a serious note, i read about that in mag also. it might work, but wouldnt your arms just die?

Exactly why in my first post I said

As others have hinted, it is a high volume endurance affair, but it was around long before charles in one form or another. I tried one of these programs about 10 years ago and did gain about 1/2 inch one my arms overnight!.......a few days later it was more like 2/8ths. Still, it was permanent as long as you continue to train but I feel also that it is largely capillary in nature. There were some recovery and other protocols to follow too. Supriseingly AAS users did well on this "experiment"

I will try (key word try) to find the program I used and post it. Of course a lot of other factors could be involved
growth does tend to happen in spurts...so maybe the nature of the program is'nt the only reason for success
A lot of it could be attributed to the fascial stretching(I remember some serious stretching in the one I followed)
I think if it works, it would be better suited to more advanced trainers-fiber diameter, CNS etc all play important roles here. A beginner may not be able to successfully complete or recover from something like this
anyway, interesting topic............thanks guys

Buddy of mine tried it and put on close to an inch but lost most of it except a small amount to which, I hold the actual training (over time)vs. that day. Once he was pumped about that growth he was hitting the gym harder and putting more focus into it.
I've never had a whole day to just hang at the gym for arms Not to mention i'm not into injuring myself either.

I know a few guys who did this and gained much, and upwards of ½" was kept in a few cases. It's logged on another board... Am I allowed posting a link?
04-23-2006 11:39 PM
Here is the arm one, there is also an 'Add 2 inches to your chest in one day' as well, I'll try to find it. here is the arm one though, I printed it to pdf last time we talked about it on here. I never tried either one though.

The routine basically has 3 different workouts for bis and tris, you alternate between each workout while taking a 1.5hr break to eat/take down protein.. It's supposed to last at least 8 hours, 4 hours of work with 4 hours of eating.. The day before and after, they say to load up on carbs and protein way above maintenance..
I'd like to try this for legs, though..
