Currently Vince runs a personal training department of 15 full time trainers and is the most sought out trainer in his area. He entered the world of fitness modeling a few years ago and in his 3rd show ever, became a national fitness model champion. Vince currently writes for many of the biggest online bodybuilding and fitness magazines today.

Each day, Vince receives dozens of unsolicited success stories and spectacular before and after pictures from real-life users of the program, many that you can read and view for yourself on his website.

INTRODUCTION
This is the phase of the program that will be CUSTOMIZED completely to you. I believe this phase makes the program far more powerful because it brings you – the trainee – into the training process. Many programs neglect the importance of individual differences such as posture, muscle imbalances and individual muscle weaknesses.

THE MAIN GOAL OF THIS PHASE IS TO DEDICATE AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS TO MINIMIZING YOUR PERSONAL MUSCLE WEAKNESSES, AND ENSURING THAT BOTH SIDES OF YOUR LIMBS ARE PERFORMING EQUALLY.
This is also an excellent opportunity to troubleshoot any potential injuries. Some refer to this phase as the Corrective Training Phase, Preparatory Training Phase or Control/ Stability Phase – I will refer to it as Upside Down Training because it is my bet that for the majority this will feel upside down! Upside Down Training is the first step before I unleash the keys to the car. You wouldn’t take out a beat up car on a long road trip or under hazardous conditions would you? You would make sure the car is in alignment, the tires are balanced, there were no malfunctioning parts, the tank was full of gas and any old parts were replaced with new parts etc. Therefore consider this first phase of your training like an automobile tune-up. When we start lifting some really heavy weights in a few short weeks, all of your weaknesses will become exposed. Either you address them now or you will pay for them later. Skipping this stage is like building a 10-story building and than realizing there is a problem with the foundation.

Build up to 2-3 minutes per side on areas of attention. Your body will thank you dearly! www.VinceDelMonteFitness. Personally I find stretching to be a relaxing activity so it kills my ‘edge’ before I have to train hard so I prefer to stretch after a workout. Yes. **It does not matter whether you stretch before or after your workouts. Stretch for RESULTS. Just like your weights and cardio – you should be increasing your range of motion each week. ****Hold each stretch for a minimum of 60 seconds per side – this is called good oldfashioned static stretching. Seek out an assessment from a competent therapist and have them treat the cause.I highly recommend seeing a competent injury treatment professional such as a chiropractor. not the symptom. that will be almost one hour of stretching a day if you perform upper and lower body each day. *****Spend more time on the areas that are tighter and don’t hold yourself to the above recommendations.

A limited range of motion equals a limited range of the muscle being used.com Page  . The insidious part to this is that it’s not detectable visually until the imbalance has reached ridiculous proportions. plan to use ‘unilateral’ movements. Another advantage of avoiding bilateral movements in UDT is that any hidden muscle weakness will be exposed and can be treated. Instead. • Train Through A FULL Range Of Motion: Some sources say that you only need to train through a limited range of motion.VinceDelMonteFitness. • then MAYBE do the strong or more flexible side. you should do no more than 5 reps on the stronger side (even if it feels like you can do 15 or more). When you have a strength imbalance there is a tendency to ‘shift’ the load to the strong side. IAN’S WEAK SIDE RULES • Strength train the weak or injured side first and stretch the tighter side first. thus increasing the imbalance. A unilateral movement is where you only use one limb at a time. • never perform more reps or more stretch on the strong/long side.PRIORITY #2 FOR UDT IMPROvE POSTURE BY STRENGTHENING WEAKER OR IMBALANCED MUSCLES • Minimize Muscle Imbalances: During UDT you will do EVERYTHING unilaterally with free weights and cables. if you are doing leg extensions and can only do 5 reps on the weaker side. So. and if your goal is to stimulate as much muscle fiber as possible then you must train through a full range of motion. and avoid ALL bilateral movements. • Apply Ian King’s Weak Side Rule: I think I learned this from the Australian strength coach and even though it appears obvious I have never heard these rules shared in conventional bodybuilding magazines. do no more reps or load (strength) or time (stretching) on the strong/long side than the weak/tighter side could do. www. A bilateral movement is where you are using both limbs together –a lat pulldown or bench press would be a bilateral movement and is out of the question during UDT.
