Built by Science

Built by ScienceMarch is “Movement” month here at Robertson Training Systems, and I see no better way to kick it off than with some hard core anatomy.

In September, I flew out to Boise, Idaho to the Bodybuilding.com headquarters, and shot material for five days to develop what’s now called the “Built by Science” video trainer.

In these videos, I’ll take you step-by-step through all of the major muscle groups in your body. Not only will we break down the bones, joints, anatomy and function, but perhaps most importantly, I’ll show you how to maximize your development.

Even if you’re not a bodybuilder, I guarantee you’ll take away something from these videos. They are chock-full of great information.

And the best part? The content below is 100% F-R-E-E.

Last but not least, I wouldn’t feel right without mentioning Craig Capurso and Jen Jewell, the fitness models who worked on-set with me. Their amazing physiques really helped bring these videos to life.

Watch, learn, and enjoy!

All the best

  1. Hey, Mike. Love this series!
    I have some questions regarding the core training, if that’s alright.
    You previously split core training into the three categories you mentioned PLUS hip flexion w/neutral spine (essentially anti-flexion training?). Do you still use that category, or do you now just focus more on anti-extension? Would you swap out jackknives for deadbugs now?

    My other question is: What is your rationale for having two anti-extension exercises in a routine? Do deadbugs/pull-ins work more the posterior core, while rollouts/fallouts work more the anterior core?

  2. this videos are perfect for me because I learn better with visual material than with audio or written material. I don’t have access to a gym for the next 3 Months do you know any exercices to build muscle mass without weights?

    • Push-ups, handstand push-ups, inverted rows, pull-ups, single-leg squats, single-leg deadlifts, planks and side planks should do the trick.
      If planks and side planks are too easy, reduce your base of support – lift one leg, one arm, or lift right arm and left leg, or left arm and right leg. With side planks, lift the leg farthest from the floor, or tuck the leg closest to the floor.
