Review by Rahul Alvares
good book by Peter Sisco, CNS Workout (Central Nervous
System), though small and only about 22 pages long, is
based on a revolutionary training principle that you definitely
should read about.
of Siscos brainwaves, CNS is an effort to deliver
maximum overload to the body and thence to the Central
Nervous System. The program essentially consists of a
Super Rep, which is combination of a few exercises that
apparently sends the biggest stimulus to the Central Nervous
System for triggering massive anabolic growth
I will quote
Sisco to explain CNS training:
you do an exercise for your biceps, a signal is
sent to the central nervous system. If the exercise
was intense enough, the central nervous system,
on feeling the vulnerability of the body, will
fire into a massive anabolic mode."
if your exercise wasnt at the intensity level
required to stimulate the central nervous system, you
aint gonna have no muscle growth! According to
Sisco, even when you train the biggest muscles in the
body with the maximum amounts of weights they can handle,
you never really stimulate the Central Nervous System
as much as when you work with the CNS Training Super
Rep. Why? Because the CNS Workout was designed to target
the Central Nervous System.
combination of the exercises creates a few drawbacks,
though. For instance, what if you dont like a particular
exercise, or cant do it for physical/medical reasons.
What then? You could substitute some other exercise for
it but I doubt if you will get the best results that the
original program was designed for. Of course, the principle
is important and on learning how and why it works, you
might decide to form your own program, which may be pretty
effective as well.
The name CNS
itself suggests the program was designed to target the
Central Nervous System. That means overall anabolic stimulation
with overall body muscle growth. Now, what if I already
have massive legs and I dont want to grow them further.
But my arms are still small and I want to make them bigger.
Then CNS wont help me in my symmetry training. In
that sense, CNS training would be a great addition for
a powerlifter or an athlete training for strength alone.
