|Skip down to the “Bottom Line”|
At some point, all trainers find themselves with a body part that just doesn’t seem to be growing as they would like.
Typically, it’s a “show muscle” – the biceps or the chest for example. The trainer then looks for a way to better target that muscle group, a way to add more training to a standard routine in order to get that lagging body part growing.
This is called specialization training and it is the focus of Nick Nilsson’s aptly titled program, “Specialization Training”.
When your arms aren’t growing as fast as you want, adding a few more sets of dumbbell biceps curls to your routine seems logical. And if that doesn’t help, adding a few more should do the trick, shouldn’t it?
Well, maybe. But bodybuilding rarely works like that. More often than not, common sense gets thrown out the window. Sometimes increased training can actually make a muscle group weaker and less responsive.
Unresponsive body parts tend to be stubbornly determined to remain unresponsive.
There is hope, however. Trainers have been experiencing this problem since the beginning of time (or at least the beginning of “weight training time”). There are methods known to successfully target an unresponsive muscle group.
Nilsson presents six such methods in “Specialization Training“, a few that I was familiar with and a few that I wasn’t.
He doesn’t go into much depth with any of the methods, more-or-less just presents them as ideas. He leaves the details of executing them in your hands. They aren’t complicated, developed plans.
Two striking things about this program are its brevity and its price tag. It will take you no more than 10 minutes to fully read and understand all six presented methods. And it will only set you back $10.
2 of 5 Stars: Do the methods work? Sure. They can.
Nilsson is certainly a guy who has tried everything under the sun to get just a little more muscle built. He is an excellent resource.
I can see these ideas having value for an intermediate type of trainer someone looking for a way to get a stubborn muscle group reacting. Just don’t expect Nilsson’s usual detailed approach. This review probably rivals the length of the program.
