In this video we take a look at Eddie’s training. Eddie talks about rest periods, which is very interesting because everyone has their own point of view on how long they should be resting and how fast they should be going. I believe you shouldn’t set very strict parameters for rest periods before going into a workout, because if you really exhaust yourself in a set, then you should take a little longer to recover. If you don’t, then you’re just wasting the set and won’t get the most out of it. Rest times are not really that important when you’re just trying to build muscle. Rest times are important when someone is just trying to keep their heart rate elevated to build a better cardiovascular output.


In bodybuilding you should never let the tension leave the muscles. Wherever you feel the most muscle tension, that is the range of motion you should focus on. You should never be doing quarter or half reps, because that is going to give you 25%-50% of gains that you would normally have doing the full range of motion.


Once Eddie gets in shape, he’s going to walk around “naked” everywhere because he’s going to be very proud of all of his hard work. That is why bodybuilders or anyone in fitness is very comfortable in their own skin, because they are proud of their hard work, which is what I love the most about bodybuilding.
