An Overview On How To Get Big Like CT Fletcher

Get Big

So, in my previous article I wrote about the most favorite exercises from CT Fletcher yet many people ask me if there is a specific program that they can follow week by week to achieve more results.

Well, I came across a special program, see the video below. I had some doubts in the start but it seems to be the best selling guide on the market, as we speak!

I’ve heard many positive results from folks who have done this. But at the same time, the bodybuilding community may not be ready for this yet, as it is very new.

 

What Does CT Fletcher think of 30 Minute Abs?

What Does CT Fletcher think of 30 Minute Abs?

CT Fletcher has to have some of the funniest internet ramblings of all time when it comes to the bodybuilding community.

Most body builders are straight forward, calm and usually, have a boring personality. CT Fletcher, however, combines the image of the Hulk with the attitude of Samuel L Jackson.

In any of his videos, you can probably hear a combination of “muthafucka” and “bullshit” quite a few times.

So it’s no surprise that he has quite a colorful opinion of 30-minute ab exercise machines and the people who use them.

Not only just the ab workouts but anything promising you results from doing 30 minutes a week worth of work.

So is he right when he calls them all BS; are they all just a rip-off and waste of time? Well duh… Think about this one for a moment.

30 Minute Abs
Image from BodyBuilders
  1. If 30 Minute workout exercises were legit and got you ripped, gyms worldwide would go under.
  2. Honestly, how many people enjoy going to the gym? If you could stay at home, do 30 minutes worth of work a day but see the results without spending $150 a month and 20 hours a week in a gym, don’t you think people would be doing that.
  3. Not only that, but people would be ripped everywhere. There’d be nothing special about being in shape with rock solid abs and 22-inch arms because if those machines worked, everyone would look like that.
  4. The companies who sold you those products would go under as well. I mean hell, what company in their right mind would sell you a product that worked the first time, especially when their target audience is lazy and desperate out of shape people?

No one would have any reason to buy their next product or other products to compliment that product.

If those machines worked, that product would be all they needed to get in shape and they’d be done with them.

So WHY to this day, are people still so in love with those machines and all of those gimmicks?

Why does CT Fletcher hate and despise the crowd of “30-minute workouts” so much?

They’re Lazy

How often have you heard someone complain that they weren’t living the life they wanted or that they wanted something?

I’m guessing you’ve heard it a lot. Now, how often have you heard that person provide a solution to their problem or tell you what they’re going to do about it? I’m guessing the answer to that would be close to never.

People don’t want solutions to a problem; they want the right to complain about a problem.

They’re Entitled

If history TV shows has showed us anything, it’s that everyone was apparently in magnificent shape by design.

Everyone firmly believes that it’s just how people looked back then and no one had to work for anything.

What this has done is, created an entitlement mindset and people think they’re owed a body like that, regardless of how bad their diet is or how lazy they are.

There’s no substitute for hard work and all of those 30 minute BS products are designed to make money for fat rich people who own those companies.

Ask the CEOs and the owners of the products to use the machines, they’ve probably never stepped foot onto one.

How CT Fletcher Built 22 Inch Arms

How CT Fletcher Built 22 Inch Arms

If there’s one thing CT Fletcher is well known and popular for (besides his internet ramblings and excessive language), it’s his monster Hulk-like arms.

How exactly does a human being who does no drugs what so ever become so jacked and build arms like that?

The workout is relatively simple, but it takes a lot of dedication. It’s called Armed Warfare around the area he’s in, and the warm up has a lot of steps but it’s highly effective.

  • Step 1) Triceps Pushdown – 10 steps of 10 reps
  • Step 2) Standing Biceps Cable Curl – 10 sets of 10 reps
  • Step 3) One Arm Dumbbell Preacher Curl – You’ll want to do two sets of this exercise and you’ll want to do them until you reach failure, every single time
  • Step 4) French Curl – 4 sets of these and you’ll do them until failure, every single set
  • Step 5) T-Curl – 2 sets until you reach failure, every set
  • Step 6) 2-Position Dumbbell Kickback – 2 sets of 40 reps (do this per arm)
  • Step 7) 3-Position Chin-Up – 1 set of 30 reps

  • Step 9) Triceps Gauntlet – Do just 1 set of 200 repetitions

Additional Tips And Helpful Pointers From CT Fletcher

Triceps Cable Pull-Down & Biceps Cable Curl

Built 22 Inch Arms

This should be your beginner workout and used to pump up your arms and start feeling a little burn.

These repetitions should be busted out relatively quickly to get a good pre-workout pump going and the weights should gradually increase from the person helping you.

The reason you have a buddy or friend pick your weight for you is that CT Fletcher believes that people go too easy on themselves.

However, when a friend is picking the weights for you, they’re far more likely to push your limits and to give you a better workout.

The 3 Position Chin Up

When you perform a chin up, the optimal way to do this exercise is in three different various positions.

First, you’ll want to use a very wide grip, then a normal grip and a close grip.

Also, remember to make sure your palms are facing towards you because you want the maximum amount of effort being focused on your biceps.

After you’ve done only 30 repetitions (10 reps in each position), you’ll be regretting having arms but you’ll love that after burn.

Under-Bar Triceps Extension

If you make and push yourself to this portion of the armed warfare exercise, then CT Fletcher personally promises that this exercise will drop you and make you quit.

The exercise is simple: Take a steadily fixed barbell, lean off of the barbell and make sure your head goes under it to get the full effect of the workout. If you want that extra weight and challenge, try to narrow your grip instead of using a wide grip.

You may not achieve 22-inch arms or you may achieve even larger arms, but this is one kick ass pump up arm work out that you’ll want to give a shot if you want to feel the burn.

However, you won’t see Fletcher competing anytime soon because he has stated multiple times that he will never compete again.

He feels that he has accomplished everything in his life that he thought humanly possible and had no desire to go up in competition again.

When you get to the age of 50+, all of that travelling can take its toll on the human body, but with someone as in great of a shape as Fletcher at that age, he has nothing to prove.

CT Fletcher’s Stats

If the mere sight of an image of CT Fletcher isn’t impressive enough, then listen to these stats. The mere thought of lifting 705lbs is a scary one, and anyone that can do that is not a force to be trifled with.

Bench Press (Gym): 705lb
Bench Press (Competition): 650lb
Squat: 725lb

CT Fletcher has coined a workout that he likes to refer to as the penitentiary workout.

The penitentiary is all about not caring how many sets or reps you do. It’s all in the mindset, and you have to imagine yourself locked up.

Imagine having all the time in the world to being able to lift and that you don’t care how many reps you do.

You’re always pushing yourself on every single lift and every single pull. The basic idea behind this workout is to “give it all you got and made every set seem like it’s your last set.”

CT Fletcher’s Workouts

The workout consists of a couple of different parts. First and foremost, he uses a power lifter.

What these do is help increase the strength of the lifter and allows you to focus on lifting more. Some of the basic workouts that he likes to focus on are as follows:

Arms

For these exercises, it’s recommended to be complete five sets of 10 reps at a minimum, for every single exercise.

Single arm dumbbell preacher curls
EZ bar preacher curls
Incline bench hammer curls
Concentration curls
Cable curls

While CT Fletchers is known quite extensively focusing on his arms and biceps, he does like some other exercises as well that he’s shared.

For the shoulders, he prefers to start out with the seated dumbbell overhead press to warm up.

After some repetitions and sets, he’ll move on to the standing barbell lateral raise and finally finish up with the seated Smith overheard press.

For the chest, CT recommends starting out with the flat barbell bench and moving on directly to the flat dumbbell bench.

Then, you’ll move on to the flat barbell pyramid bench, move on to the smith bench, move on to the incline barbell bench and finally finish off with some good old fashioned pushups.

Biceps

One of the most noticeable features of CT Fletchers is by far the biceps and it’s also one of his most extensive workouts. The bicep workouts will basically come into 6 different parts.

1 – Start out with the incline bench hammer curls
2 – You’ll then move onto dumbbell preacher curls
3 – Then, move onto EZ curl bar preacher curls
4 – Barbell preacher curls
5 – Straight bar cable curls
6 – Finally, you’ll want to finish off with some concentration curls

You may need to mix and match to find which exercises and sets work best for you.

There’s a damn good reason behind this, though because he’s not just a bodybuilder, he’s a 50-year-old bodybuilder with six world champions under his belt.

Currently, he’s a personal trainer at the Metroflex Gym in Long Beach, California.

You can find him there and I’m sure for the right price, he’ll yell at you too. Some locals around the area like to call him the Superman of Compton, California.

What’s The Significance of Music during a Workout?

Music is one of those things that helps get you motivated and helps get you pumped up during a workout.

Not only that, but music has been shown to greatly help productivity in whatever it is that you do and not just lifting.

Music can move you and it can affect your emotions as well. Some people like to listen to slow rock songs when they’re sad to be reminded of an ex and some people like to listen to fast paced metal music when they’re lifting to help them pump the iron.

CT Fletcher was recently interviewed about playing music during his workouts and what kind of music he listens to that make his workouts a bit more productive.

His answers aren’t particularly surprising, but they should give you some ideas of what kind of music you should be playing if you want to exhibit a fraction of the intensity and ferocity that CT Fletcher has.

When asked about what role music plays during CT’s workouts:
Unsurprisingly, he stated that he doesn’t focus on music mainly but he’s focusing on the workout.

He was highly motivated and devoted to getting the best workout possible in the time span that he’s lifting and doesn’t tend to notice the music around him.

In his own words, it’s like a ‘huge, full-out-war’ instead of his head going on and not because of the tunes playing the background.

However, when he does listen to music, he stated that he does enjoy listening to some James Brown, because unlike the younger crowd that listens to metal and heavy music, he likes to keep it classic.

It’s not often that he wants to turn music on, but when he does, he’ll blast some Al Green, James Brown or Aretha Franklin to help get the blood moving and keep the intensity going.

When asked about if he had to choose just one album to listen to for the remainder of his life.

Obviously, he was going to answer James Brown. I’m pretty sure CT Fletcher has mentioned James Brown in any music-related interview that he got a chance to, but his exact response was: “James find brown”.

It should be no surprise to many that since he’s 50+ years old, he grew up listening to things like James Brown and other classical tunes.

One of CT Fletcher’s greatest inspirations for what he does would be Sonny Liston.

He knew that Sonny Liston liked to listen to James Brown whenever he was training and that alone gets CT’s blood pumped up to the classical hits.

He wanted to be just like Sonny Liston and that meant listening to the same music he trained to.

He did state though that he can listen to just about anything, especially anything from the James Brown decade.

When it comes to being the best, CT Fletcher is no stranger to pushing himself to the limits.

His main inspiration for being the best would be Muhammad Ali.

When he was growing up, he was just another poor kid from a poor family in the mean streets of Compton.

You had to be tough to survive those streets and CT gets a lot of respect from that fact.

One of the main things people remember about Muhammad is how adamant he was about sticking to what he believed in, which Fletcher says gives him a huge inspirational boost every time he lifts.
