Macro Mass Muscle Building Review
Interview With Tommy Bussey
Tommy Bussey just released a great new program called Macro Mass Muscle Building and way nice enough to answer some question for me.
Q. Can you give us some background about yourself?
A. I'm 22 years old. I began weight training when I was 16. I started
out lifting weights to improve my baseball skills. I ended up getting
a scholarship to play Division 1 baseball at Liberty University.
During my time there I got really close with our strength coaches,
Dave Williams and Bill Gillespie. I would always stay late and do
extra lifting, so they took extra time with me to teach a lot of about
the "science" behind getting bigger and stronger.
Q. What got you started in bodybuilding?
A. I got started into bodybuilding after my baseball career had ended. I
suffered a terrible string of injuries and lost a ton of weight. Last year
I was only about 153 lbs in August. I was pretty depressed about all
that happened and kind of turned to alcohol and partying to try to
cope with it. Anyways, one morning in October I woke up with a
pretty bad hangover, and when I stumbled into the bathroom I looked
in the mirror and said to myself, "Enough is enough." So, I began to
do bodybuilding. So far the heaviest I have been is 211 lbs. with about
9% body fat. Right now, I'm at 195 with about 5% BF and getting ready
to get back into a bulking phase.
Q. What are your favorite and least favorite exercises?
A. My favorite exercises are deadlifts, squats, bench press, and bb skull
crushers, bb shrugs (to name a few ;)
I don't really enjoy doing triceps cable kick downs haha
Q. What are some tips you can give for the beginner, intermediate and advanced?
A. For the beginner, my best advice is to focus on training 3, maybe 4 days per week,
doing mainly compound lifts. At the beginning it is smart to armor up your body, and
build a good foundation for the muscle you're about to add. I always tell people that
the biggest and best structures in the world are only standing because of how well
the engineer designed the foundation. Also, a beginner should focus on adjusting to
the eating schedule of a bodybuilder. I encourage beginners to focus on eating 6-8
meals per day and gradually trying to increase the calories each day. I try to keep it
simple so (depending on metabolism) I recommend eating around 20X your target
body weight to start actually building muscle.
For the intermediate, I recommend to start getting a little more scientific with training
routines. Start keeping a log and really focusing on what lifts are producing the best
gains. By this point an intermediate bodybuilder should be used to eating like a body
builder so I recommend to begin really getting serious about the quality of calories
they are putting into their bodies. Also, by the intermediate level I think it is good to
start supplementing, but doing it properly. Obviously, there are a lot of supps that are
just bogus and some work better for certain people than others. So, it comes down to
being serious about doing your homework and actually being AWARE of what is going
on with your body.
For the advanced bodybuilder I think the biggest thing I would point out is that one really
beneficial thing to do when training is to put an extreme amount of focus on which muscles
you are contracting. In other words, when doing for example DB Lateral Raises, an advanced
bodybuilder will have the muscle control it takes to single out the lateral heads of the deltoids;
however, it takes focus actually use this ability for producing optimal results. Obviously, this
can be applied to every lift. Also, as an advanced bodybuilder you should be eating extremely
clean and also have a good record of what types of food make you feel "anabolic" and make
you feel energetic and ready to rip some iron.
Q. Where do you stand on the use of steroids and supplements?
A. I do not use steroids and will not use steroids. They are in my opinion too dangerous to be
messed around with. I know that there are people who do them and experience little to no
negative side effects; HOWEVER, the odds aren't that great. I don't look down on people
who use them, it's their choice. But I would never recommend them, use them, or sell them.
As far as dietary supplements go, I think there are some good ones. I think something like
Animal Pak should def be in a bodybuilders supplementation as well as a high quality whey
protein. There are also some natural test boosters and prohormones that I don't have a
problem with, but they should be taken very occasionally.
Overall, I think that the best "steroid" is eating the perfect bodybuilding diet and staying
committed to that.
Q. What are your future goals?
A. As far as my body, I want to weight 220 lbs. with 6-8% bf. I don't really want to get any
bigger because I'm not planning on doing any competitive shows (I may do a show just
for the experience :) But mainly I want to have an exemplary body so I can show my
clients and customers (online especially) that I not only talk the talk, but I walk the walk.
I just graduated college last May and have worked this whole summer to start my own
marketing business. I've been working about 16 hours everyday to get up and running
because I have not capital and have done everything on my own sweat, mind, energy,
I will be earning six figures or more per year before I turn 25. And before I'm 30 I am going
to have a charity that helps young athletes who can't afford good sports equipment to be
able to be properly equipped with the newest and nicest gear :)
Q. What is the toughest part about bodybuilding for you?
A. The toughest part of bodybuilding for me has been the eating. I have a lightning quick
metabolism and can lose weight by eating 3-4 meals per day haha. So, I def have to
focus the main part of my energy on my nutrition.
Q. Tell us about Macro Mass Muscle Building?
A. I designed Macro Mass on the basis of a couple thoughts. One, I wanted to combine the
perfect amount of variation and consistency to spark muscle growth through forced
adaptation mixed with a consistent mix of exercises. Two, I correlated the previous aspect
with the proper muscle group isolation techniques. In my personal training, I have seen
phenomenal gains in size AND strength using this system.
Q. What are the Macro Mass Muscle Building workouts like?
A. The workouts are designed to be relatively short 45-60 min. of weights. I feel like the majority
of amateur body builders are led astray because they think they can lift like the pros, training
hours upon hours. But they don't realize that most pros are either on steroids, have been training
for a decade plus, have no other job but lifting, OR all of the above.
I want the users of Macro Mass to be able to easily incorporate the training into their busy
schedules, but still get in the gym and get after. This is beneficial for people because it will help
them stay focused when they see that they don't have a "laundry list" of exercises to get through. So,
they will train hard, get a good pump, and then start the proper recovery process (which I emphasize
in the written segment of my product).
Q. What is the Macro Mass Muscle Building diet like?
A. I've tried to keep the diet relatively simple. I've given users some easy formulas to calculate daily
caloric intake and daily protein intake based on their target weights. Something really cool that I
did is make a "pantry checklist." This is great because if people stick to the checklist they will only
be putting muscle building foods into their bodies.
Also, throughout the product, whether written or video segments, I emphasize the importance of
eating right and how it is crucial to building muscle. The diet revolves around the idea of eating
6-8 meals per day, divided into portions that add up to hit the target caloric and protein intakes.
Q. Anything else you'd like to add?
A. I'm in this business not only to make money but to truly help people change their bodies and improve their lives. website, he is on board with this launch as well. I'm really hoping to make this as successful as possible so I can begin to make a name for myself and help as many people as possible.
