Here is a question I recently received in the Bully Xtreme owner’s forum regarding Bullworker exercises and the Bullworker training program.
There are vast differences between how the Bully Xtreme Iso-Synergy workout schedule is structured and that totally outdated Bullworker exercise program!
The Bullworker training program that is currently included when you purchase a Bullworker, Bullworker X5, Bullworker steel bow, or even the so-called — Bullworker Classic — still recommends that you workout using isometrics EVERY DAY!
This is moronic!
Why You Should Not Train Every Day Using a Bullworker, Bully Xtreme, or Any Other Isometric Exerciser!
If you were doing isometrics utilizing free weights you would not even think about training every day. That is why it is so incredibly stupid that anyone would promote exercising every day when you’re using “progressive resistance.”
I often read posts at a particular “Isometrics Board” where these so-called “Fitness Experts” talk about how they injured their elbow performing Bullworker isometric training.
When you read these posts you begin to notice that they are either uneducated when it comes to exercise physiology or they were just misled by the old Bullworker training program (the same one that they are selling today.)
Here’s what I recently replied to one of our many Bully Xtreme customers regarding this topic.
One of the many mistakes that people that use the old Bullworker training program to is that they workout too frequently. If you were doing freehand isometrics, it is perfectly acceptable to exercise every day. However, when you’re using a Bully Xtreme, resistance bands or free weights isometrically — then you need to give your muscles some rest.
That is why you will hear about people complaining about getting or having a “Bullworker elbow” problem.
This is simply because they don’t follow proper exercise protocol. If you were doing body weight exercises or freehand isometrics you can exercise, every day — when you add in progressive resistance — then you must give the body a chance to recuperate.
So if you were training four days per week and you’re training different body parts each time — it is perfectly okay to train every day.
For example, you could use a workout schedule such as this:
Wednesday: shoulders and abdominal
Thursday: biceps and triceps
Friday: legs, hamstrings, and calves
This is a one body part per day workout schedule you would do 3 to 4 exercises for each body part. The number repetitions would fall into the eight to 15 reps per set. Where you would use an isometric hold at the end of each set.
You can also follow a workout schedule such as this:
Monday: chest and biceps
Tuesday: back and triceps
Thursday: shoulders and abs
Friday: legs, calves, and hamstrings
The days that are not listed — Saturday and Sunday — would be rest days. I would also recommend that you do some form of cardiovascular training such as bicycling, walking, jumping rope, or the Bully Xtreme circulation exercise or the Bully Xtreme seated rowing exercise — for fat burning and cardiovascular training — three days per week.
You can do them on workout days or on your off days.
Resistance Training more frequently than this — such as doing a full body workout everyday as is recommended in the old Bullworker training program — which is still being promoted today — is just plain dumb and will lead to injury.
I cannot recommend this enough — PLEASE DO NOT — train every day using any type of isometric exerciser, resistance bands, free weights or anything that uses more than your body weight as resistance!
I hope this helps
