Training

Super Sets

Zac finds super sets to be an effective way of achieving a high volume of training in his workouts. It also serves him as both a cardio, and strength a training workout – giving his body little rest with super sets.

An additional benefit Zac experienced from super sets was achieving a long ‘time-under-tension‘, which is crucial for building muscle. By doing a regular set, he gets about 20-35 seconds of time under tension, but with super-sets, he increases that duration to over 45 seconds.

Nutrition

Zac’s diet consists of typical bodybuilder’s foods; such as lean meats and eggs for muscle building, and slow-releasing carbs for a constant supply of energy. He also eats avocados, nuts, and olive oil for a healthy heart and improved testosterone levels.

For post-workout, Zac will add in some sort of a fast-acting carbs (preferably dextrose, but it can be anything) to replenish the lost glycogen in his muscles as quickly as possible.

  • Tuna Fish
  • Vegetables
  • Beef
