Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) is pleased to bring to you the third in our four-part series on specialty training techniques. These are a series of workout protocols that deviate from the norm to produce exceptional results by stimulating your muscles in unconventional ways such that they don’t adapt and stagnate. Our first two installments discussed specialty techniques centered on leveraging exercises, sets, reps and rest periods for the purpose of muscle building. This month, it’s all about the fat burning.

Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) is pleased to present the second in our four-part series on specialty training techniques. These innovative training protocols serve as ways to break from the norm of boring, same-old exercises using traditional rep schemes and overused four-day or weekly splits. Specialty techniques infuse the elements of creativity and innovation to give you a mental spark, while delivering consistent gains leading to improved results. In turn, you should be able to enter a competition with an extra edge over your fellow athletes.
Many aspiring fitness athletes irrationally fear that this journey is something one has to undertake all by oneself. And despite possessing all the enthusiasm in the world, you may have doubts as to whether you’re capable of following through with the commitment all by yourself. This rationalizing can go on and on, but we’re here to guide you with a clear understanding that you’re not alone in this endeavor – and if others can do it, absolutely you can too! Let’s put the commitment decision into proper perspective.
Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) is pleased to introduce to our website a new training series named MUSCLES OF THE MONTH (MOTM). The information provided each month is one of the many new features on our website to help you get into the best shape of your life and make your journey to the UFE stage.
Each monthly MOTM installment will provide a competitor-friendly, intermediate-level education on a respective muscle group plus a unique, specially designed workout program based on the muscles involved. Whether your ambition is to compete in Bodybuilding, Physique, Fitness Model, Figure, Bikini or Glamour, you’ll be certain to benefit and learn; in turn, you should observe significant improvements to the size and shape of your muscles. This new series will be written by Timothy Rigby, M.A., NSCA-CPT who has written over 240 full-length training packages for several of the world’s leading fitness publications.
Everyone wants that extra edge. That little-known piece of information that sets you apart from the rest; that pushes your gains over the top and helps you hit your goals efficiently. Competitive athletes at all levels constantly seek some sort of special technique to training that stimulates your gains faster and more significantly than your same old workout – and your competition. When it comes to fitness, you truly have a blank cheque at your disposal, and your approach to training is limited only by your imagination. Bodybuilders, Fitness Models, Figure and Physique athletes, Bikini and Glamour athletes are all free to incorporate as much sound creativity as desired when it comes to implementing a radical method of training in their journey to competition. This is to say, however, that such methods must be structured and scientifically valid.
