I surveyed a few hundred people from the Synergy Newsletter at random a couple nights ago on how they found Synergy and how can I help them reach their goals.

85% suggested topics related to muscle growth and size.

Use the tilted pyramid method below once a week for 1-2 months to slap on some extra chest and triceps size.

    Hi Joe

    This is great…at last something that the older guys can adapt and work it out. By adapting I refer to the weights only and not the reps…
