The Premise
I am including this section again for all of you trying the Blast Training System for the first
time. This style of training can be applied to both males and females looking to take their
workouts to another level. The system is built upon the concepts of strength/hypertrophic
training, volume training and muscle confusion. Here are the basic principles of my Blast
Training System; I like to call these the "Boom, Burn & Blast." These three aspects make up
the workouts. They can be included in a variety of different styles, exercises and times
throughout the workouts. Lets take a look...
"Boom" - This is basically the strength or heavy aspect of the workout. Each workout will
contain at least one exercise where you will be trying to go for heavier weight or an increasing
weight, to elicit the breakdown of muscle tissue. Blast Training is not to be performed using
lighter weight, rather increasing volume while still using a challenging weight!
"Burn" - The burn is the endurance or pump stage where volume training is incorporated. It is
immensely important to pump as much blood to the targeted muscle group while training.
However, sometimes it just doesn't happen when lifting heavy. Therefore, I wanted to include
an aspect in each workout to ensure a pump is achieved.
"Blast" - This is my favorite portion. This is an all out hellacious set, exercise or period of
time during the workout. Some of you have seen these aspects in the blast routines posted on
my blog and have given great feedback on them. This incorporates an abnormal training style
to shock the targeted muscle group.
When youre done a workout from my Blast Training System, your body will not know what hit
it. I basically took all of my favorite aspects of training and figured out a way to put them all
together in an unorthodox, yet effective training style. Each workout will include a "Boom, Burn
& Blast" element, however the order and way in which they are included will change. This just
adds to the challenge and the confusion. The best part is, this training style can be
incorporated into virtually any scenario. Fat loss, muscle building, endurance, it doesn't
matter. Obviously, we are focusing on building lean muscle mass with Blast for Mass: BLACK!

Blast Training System Blast for Mass: BLACK

Blast Training for Mass - black edition


Now that you have a basic understanding of how Blast Training works, we can move on to real
reason you have purchased this eBook, how to build lean muscle mass using the Blast Training
System. To understand what we are going to try and do here, you must first understand the
main objective when working out. The goal of any workout, or at least any workout I have ever
done, is to breakdown the muscle tissue as much as possible. Traditionally speaking, building
muscle was done by increasing weight and decreasing reps. This is effective, however it is not
the only way to produce gains in lean muscle tissue.
Blast for Mass introduced us to a new way to further incorporate everything you need to
breakdown the muscle tissue and prime your physique for growth. Now, we are going to take
things a step further! The idea behind this system is to fully incorporate bodybuilding style
training, strength/powerlifting training AND Blast Training for unparalleled results. Some
weeks you will be full out blasting, some weeks you will be hitting heavier weight with
moderate reps and lastly, some weeks you will be training for your full out MAXX. The overall
goal will be to add significant muscle mass to your frame without adding significant body fat.
In the following pages you will find over 25 new Blast workouts, new Blast Foundations
workouts, the all-new Blast MAXXED workouts. You will also find an exact schedule of how to
use and incorporate everything.

Are you sick of the same old workouts, day in and day out?
Are you looking to gain mass, but you can only find generic plans and programs that prove
ineffective?
Well, you can rest assured you have come to the right place. I can personally attest to this
program, as I have used the Blast workouts over the past three years to take my physique to
the next level. This training program can be used for the 12 week duration outlined and beyond
with much success.
So, without further a due, I give you the Blast for Mass: BLACK program!

Blast for Mass Diet - black edition


Diet and nutrition is unlike training in that, no one diet works for everyone. Every person, you
included, has his or her own specific Lean Body Mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Total Caloric
Expenditure, Activity Factors, etc. These individual fitness variables differ from one person to
the next.
With that being said, I am committed to putting out a quality product and giving each member
of Blast Nation RESULTS, period. Although I cant create a custom diet for everyone purchasing
this eBook, I am providing you with a sample diet to help you pack on the size. I am also
including a unique Blast for Mass bulking technique, which is specific to this system!
Additionally, I have broken down the nutritional portion of this program a step further. I have
included a sample diet for each body type. Simply select which body type you are below and
follow that sample diet for the duration of the program.
Ectomorph Typically tall and thin with trouble gaining weight or lean muscle tissue.
Mesomorph Typically athletic and muscular with no trouble gaining or losing weight.
Endomorph Typically a softer, rounder build with trouble losing weight.
Remember, diet is KEY to the overall success of any program. If you are not eating in line with
your goal, you will not succeed. It is always best to follow a diet designed specifically for
yourself based on your specific variables. If you do not know how to put something like this
together, I can help. I have decided to give everyone who purchases any of my eBooks 50% off
my Core Nutrition Package on www.HughesFIT.com/Training. Hopefully this should help out
any of you who want to take the diet one step further and need custom programs made.

Below is a list of guidelines to follow in addition to the diet provided. For the absolute best
results, apply these guidelines to a diet based specifically on your body and individual fitness
variables. If you are applying these guidelines to one of the sample diets outlined here in the

- Cheat meals can only be consumed on training days.
- Cheat meals must be consumed in place of a meal after your workout (Meal 6 or 7 in sample

Blast for Mass Supplementation - black edition


Supplementation is the facet of any regimen that brings everything together. When your diet
and training are on point, proper supplementation can help really take you to the next level!
However, with so many brands, products and choices, its very easy to become overwhelmed
with what to use and what is actually necessary.
Just like nutrition, supplementation and results from supplementation are specific to the
individual. However, I am providing you all with a list of supplements I find beneficial, as well
as a sample supplementation regimen to go along with the Blast for Mass: BLACK program.
The brands, products and choices are always up to you; these are just my personal
recommendations.
Recommended Supplements:
- Whey Protein Blend (Casein, Whey, Isolate)
- Whey Protein Isolate
- Creatine
- BCAAs
- Carbohydrate Product
- Pre-Workout
- Multi-Vitamin
Optional Supplements:
- Test Booster
- Cortisol Blocker
- N.O. Product
- GH Booster

Blast for Mass Workouts - BLACK EDITION


Now you have a solid foundation for growth, utilizing both the body type specific sample diet
and supplementation regimens. It is now time to move on to the fun part, the kickass
workouts! This program is unique in that you will utilize not two, but THREE different styles of
training synergistically with the main focus on adding quality muscle mass to your frame. You
have your workout schedule, so lets take a look at the workouts themselves.
In the Blast for Mass: BLACK program, you will of course be utilizing the Blast Training System.
This eBook will provide you with over 25 fresh, new Blast workouts to test you both physically
and mentally. Now, we have already outlined the premise behind these workouts, but here are
some key factors to keep in mind while using this program:

Blast workouts from the first 3 eBooks CAN be utilized in this program during the Blast
periods in the workout schedule. Grab the other eBooks with over 100 additional Blast
workouts here: www.BlastTrainingSystem.com.

Blast Training is not light-weight/high-reps, rather it is pushing yourself in both weight


and volume (unless otherwise noted). Ask yourself, if I were standing next to you,
would you lift that? Didnt think so

You can select any Blast workout for the given muscle group in which you are training.
Therefore, you may switch up workouts as often as you would like. Either way, the
workouts will create significant muscle confusion.

In addition to the Blast workouts, you will find new Blast Foundations workouts and you will
be introduced to the new Blast MAXXED workouts! These different types of workouts are going
to be strategically inserted for a week or two at a time, throughout the duration of the
program. The object behind this is to of course continue to create muscle confusion, but to
also include traditional, time-tested bodybuilding style training and strength/power lifting
training into the program.
In the Blast Foundations and MAXXED workouts, you will be sticking to a more traditional style
of training and workout structure. You will be shooting for increasing weight and decreasing
reps. The difference will be, because of the Blast Training, your body will respond much quicker
to this more traditional style of training. If the program is utilized properly, by the final MAXXED
week you will set all new PRs and have increased significantly in size!
NOW, ON TO THE WORKOUTS!

Blast for Mass Foundations - BLACK EDITION


The next series of workouts included in this eBook are, once again, the Blast Foundations
workouts. These workouts are included to provide another level of muscle confusion within the
program and to hit those crucial body building movements and rep ranges needed for growth.
Every so often within the program you will be directed to switch over to the Foundations
workouts. During this week or weeks you will be changing up workout style, pace and mindset.
The Foundations workouts are to be done with the following in mind:

Emphasis on compound lifts

Increasing weight with each set

Greater rest times (2-3 minutes between heaviest sets)

No supersets or giant sets during these weeks

Keep in mind, the focus of these workouts is to be increasing weight with each set and
shooting for gains in all lifts. While the Blast workouts contain a ton of volume and a nontraditional style of training, they also prime your physique for huge gains in all lifts. This will
come to light when you are doing the Foundations workouts.

Blast for Mass MAXxED WORKOUTS


The next series of workouts included in this eBook are the Blast MAXXED Workouts. These
workouts are included to provide a raw power element to the program.
Twice in the program you will be directed to switch over to the MAXXED workouts. During
these weeks you will be changing up your workout style, pace and mindset. The MAXXED
workouts are to be done with the following in mind:

Emphasis on raw power

Increasing weight with each set

Greater rest times (3 minutes between heaviest sets)

Going for your max lifts on all movements the entire week (use spotter)

For 1RM sets, ensure you perform one complete rep. Most times, I actually perform
two reps, as the first tends to be less than ideal.

Keep in mind, the focus of these workouts is to be increasing weight with each set and
shooting for your 1RM throughout the week. This will come to light when you are doing the
Foundations workouts and REALLY shine when you hit the MAXXED workouts. Your 1RM max
should increase significantly from day one on the program.

Closing Remarks
I can give you the workouts. I can provide sample diets based on your body type,
supplementation programs and food options. However, I cannot do this for you. Give this
program your absolute all, day in and day out, and you WILL get results! This doesnt mean
choose comfortable weights. This doesnt mean snap selfies mid-workout. This means BUST
YOUR ASS!
Follow the program for at least 12 weeks for the best overall results. For even better results,
repeat the program for a second time and a total of 24 weeks (6 months). Gaining lean muscle
mass takes time. Doing a 2-3 month bulk will get you some results, but ideally you want to
put on significant size before switching gears and moving into a cutting or weight loss
regimen.
If you have any questions regarding this program, please check www.BlastTrainingSystem.com
for FAQs. You can also post questions on my Facebook Page at
www.Facebook.com/MensPhysique or tweet me @ryanphughes.
