When I got the AMD 2.0 program to review, I thought, “oh ya, another muscle building workout program. Do these exercises this way and you will be big and huge like the incredible Hulk.” I was totally wrong.
It did have the stuff in it if you want to become the Incredible Hulk but the part that I like best was the focus on self massage, mobilization, activation and rehabilitation. I am a huge fan of this especially if you got Muscle Imbalances Revealed.
Most muscle building workout programs don’t have this.
What I Like about AMD 2.0
Organized – I like how things are organized. It is easy to get around to stuff and see everything. A lot of programs don’t have this.
AMD Essential Recovery Guide – This was great. I was expecting it to be 0 to 30 pages but it was 116. I printed it out. It is good. Sorry Smitty, I am going to steal a few of these exercises for my workout, my clients and courses.
Here is one of the ones I liked:
AMD Deadlift 101 Manual – I am not big deadlifter but I was impressed with this. It has an amazing amount of info on how to do it right, all kinds of stuff other than the techniques, the way to do it right, the way to lift heavy stuff and differ ways of doing it. If someone asks me for a good deadlift resource, I will suggest this.
Here is a page out of it. Will probably try something like this for rehab clients, minus the huge heavy weight:
AMD Power Core – They had some wild core options especially one you can do in the free weight area. These will be cool for a client that is looking for some unique and challenging core exercises.
Here is one that I thought was cool. Not the fact that one of the guys is wearing a toque (aka – winter hat) but it is something I have not seen before:
What I Didn’t Like
I hate to say these two things as they were very small details. I know if I don’t say something, someone is going to email me and let me know.
YouTube Videos – I didn’t like the fact that a lot of the videos went to YouTube videos. I was hoping to get exclusive exercises that I could not find anywhere else. Kind of like with Eric Cressey’s Show and Go Program.
Photo Quality – Some of the photos could have been better quality as some were blurry or hard to see what the movement was.
Who is the For
Interested in Rehabilitation – I have got a number of ideas and exercises from the AMD Essential Recovery Guide. I will use this as a reference when it comes to myself, my client and the courses I teach.
Want Deadlift Info – I was very impressed with the deadlift info. If you are interested in how to do it right, how to lift heavy weight doing it and different ways of doing it, AMD 2.0 has it.
Need a Muscle Building Program – If you are looking for a solid muscle building program with components to help you stay injury-free and rehab, AMD 2.0 has it.
Hard Core Exercises – If you are looking for hard core exercises to do in the gym, especially in the free weight here, AMD 2.0 has go it.
That is it, thanks for reading.
This is what is included in the AMD 2.0 Program:
