You can consider this a general overview of the relatively new product called AxioMuscle, as intended for those out there in the audience who might be interested in this sort of thing. At this immediate time of writing, it’s being offered at a fairly inexpensive introductory price; it currently retails for $9.95, through ClickBank, the Internet’s longest-running affiliate marketplace. It’s basically what they call a digital information product, and it’s one that’s directly targeted at the fitness niche. Whatever it may be called, in actuality, AxioMuscle is a .PDF eBook, 71 pages in length, with a few key illustrations therein.
AxioMuscle is authored by an apparently disgruntled gym manager by the name of Michael Allen who has witnessed, literally, multiple years’ worth of wasted gym hours — wasted by patrons who followed misguided and largely ineffective fitness protocols. Whether they were young men trying to “get ripped,” or women eager to shed some pounds to look better at the beach or in a wedding dress, whatever it was they were doing in the gym seldom seemed to work very well, sadly enough. Though he’s not what would be called a certified personal trainer per se, as he stresses in AxioMuscle’s preface, Allen has nonetheless periodically offered his own particular guidance to some of the more open-minded and receptive of his customers. Evidently, and not so surprisingly to him, perhaps, they became among the few “success stories” he has witnessed at the gym he has managed for over half a decade.
So as not to deny Allen the opportunity of giving the full presentation of his story and recommendations, and also not to violate any of his copyrights, I will only say that the basis of his methodology is as simple as it is highly sound in its principles. It might even be so much so that a lot of gymgoers will look with scorn upon it and reject it, returning to whatever approach they were already using (even if it doesn’t even really work all that well for them, in truth). But it’s hard to deny that what he says makes a lot of sense. Furthermore, he doesn’t just tell you that it works — he also goes to great lengths to explain, in the most basic terminology possible, why it works. And contrarily, he talks a lot about why the approaches that are far more commonly used, such as doing hours of joint-wearing cardio exercising, don’t work nearly as well as his, either for speedy weight loss or long-term physical conditioning, or both.
It’s this very last part, that is, Allen’s long expositions on why the most familiar gym methods don’t work very well for a lot of people, which led me to describe him earlier as disgruntled. Frankly, there are times when he seems a little excessive in his outright condemnation of exercise approaches that are opposite to what he prescribes. Sometimes he’s even somewhat mean and nasty in his descriptions of people in the gym, and what they do while they’re there. However, I suppose we do have to take the time to see it from his rather qualified viewpoint. It seems he got the manager position mostly because he looked physically developed and impressive, for which he insists his own exercise methodology is solely responsible. And he has spent innumerable total hours in that gym environment, which became something of an observational laboratory for him. He saw what most people did while they were there, and cross-referenced it with what he himself did for his own exercise. To him, it was no wonder why people frittered away their gym time ineffectively, or else joined the gym for a short while and then didn’t come back. They had high aspirations, but when they failed to see desirable results, their efforts (and attendance) ultimately waned, and they often disappeared altogether.
For the very modest retail price to be paid for AxioMuscle, I would consider just the exercise instruction portion alone well worth it, if nothing more than as an entertaining (albeit sometimes caustic) nonfiction read. But the guide doesn’t end there. Allen obviously has studied nutritional supplements extensively on his own, and he gives a lot of information about what might be taken to assist followers of his protocol not just with exercise recovery but also in the interests of enhancing their overall health as well. Some of it will doubtless already be familiar to many natural health enthusiasts, but the remainder of it, maybe not so much. Portions of this supplemental information becomes a bit more esoteric when he talks about topics like testosterone boosters and natural aromatase inhibitors, which naturally won’t apply to everyone. Still, it seems Allen wants to be sure his readers get all the ammunition they need in a one-stop-shop and don’t have to wonder about these things too much. He also covers some major useful points within the topics of diet, sleep, protein and water (the sufficient consumption of which, he emphasizes, is not to be underestimated).
If you want to have a look at the AxioMuscle page, you can see it here. And for those who are inclined to part with their $9.95 and acquire the downloadable product, I don’t consider it too likely they’ll honestly call it a waste of money. And who knows, maybe they’ll even end up not wasting their gym time, either.
