Nick Nilsson Interviews Mike Westerdal About Lean Hybrid Muscle Building
NN: Hey Mike, thanks for taking the time to talk with me.Â What exactly do you mean by Hybrid?
Mike: Itâ€™s pretty cool because it has a double meaning in this case.
1. The general definition of â€œhybridâ€ is combining two or more different things. In this case we want to take the best of several training philosophies in order to accomplish multiple goals at one time.
2. We also have whatâ€™s been called the â€œHybrid Muscleâ€ which is really what Lean Hybrid Muscle Building is all about.
NN: Okay Mike Iâ€™ll take the bait, what the heck is a â€œHybrid Muscleâ€?
Mike: When talking about â€œsuper hybrid muscle,â€ weâ€™re referring to a muscle that has essentially been reconfigured, adding mitochondrial density, which results in a bigger stronger muscle with more endurance capacity.
This is accomplished by combining cardio and strength training into a single activity.
I learned a lot about hybrid super muscle through the book The Purposeful Primitive, written by Marty Gallagher. Itâ€™s one of my all time favorite books.
By combining cardio and resistance activities it causes the composition of muscles to transform from predominately type II or type IIb into Type III….
By doing this, we are able to push â€œbeyond our genetic limitsâ€.
Having more mitochondria in the muscle cells means that more nutrients can be processed, giving the muscles the ability to work considerably harder for longer periods. Theyâ€™re also able to grow larger and are able to resist getting tired for longer periods.
NN: Type III muscle? Did you make that up or are you claiming to have invented a new muscle fiber?
Mike: I wish I could take credit for that, but no. After reading Martyâ€™s book I started my research and learned that a lot of guys have been preaching this stuff for a while. Itâ€™s nothing new. Itâ€™s just something a lot of people havenâ€™t heard about.
Early adapters of this theory included Dr. Len Schwartz who in 1995 coined the phrase â€œLong Strengthâ€. Dr. Schwartz describes Long strength as â€œthe ability to exert significant strength for an extended period of time.â€
John Parrillo-the second proponent of long strength-began having his bodybuilders doing really high intensity cardio. He claimed that doing this actually altered the muscle composition. He called this form a resistance training the â€œ100 rep extended set,â€ saying that it helped the body to construct more mitochondria-the musclesâ€™ â€œcellular blast furnaces.â€ He also says that this increases muscular growth by developing the circulatory pathways that provide nourishment to the muscles.
Ori Hofmekler is the third early adopter of the long strength concept. Ori developed a weight training system that he called, â€œControlled Fatigue Training.â€ According to Ori, this type of training was specifically designed to develop these super hybrid muscles-ones that were capable of generating and sustaining strength for extended periods.
In this post you have seen how the principles of lean hybrid muscle have been around for some time. Mike and Eliot have done their research to help you burn the most amount of fat in a workout all the while allowing you to build bigger muscles.
Be on the look out for parts 2 and 3 where Mike explains how to get lean hybrid muscle and outlines different exercises routines so you can do these two things – build muscle burn fat!
