Okay, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a review on here, but I’m back today to tell you about a program that is pretty freakin’ cool and very unconventional.
It’s called “Visual Impact Frequency Training” and it’s by Rusty Moore, the creator of all the Visual impact programs like Visual Impact Muscle Building, Visual Impact For Women, and Visual Impact Cardio, that I have previously reviewed on this website…

I’ve been a fan of Rusty’s stuff for a while now, because I am a fan of rocking what he refers to as “The Lean Hollywood Look” – meaning that I have zero interest in looking like some huge jacked monstrosity with big puffy arms… Nope, I’d much rather just stay about the same size I am and get my muscles all ripped up and rock hard like an action movie star.
Anyhow – Rusty’s program has just been released to the general public for the first time ever (it was released to a small group of beta testers a few months back, you can read their stories here…) and I wanted to jump on here and let you know my personal thoughts on the program, the pros and cons of the training system, and just give you an overall idea of what
this is all about.
What Is The Basic Idea Behind Rusty’s New Visual Impact Frequency Training?
The thing that got me the most excited about Rusty’s new program is just how different it is from any other fitness training guide that I have ever seen, and I’ve seen them all. Basically, this flies in the face of traditional wisdom regarding how to improve your physique, get stronger and have better defined muscles.
I was always led to believe that in order to get stronger and to have harder more defined muscles that I need to work out using a split, and just demolish my muscles, going past failure, with drop-sets, monster sets and all kinds of fancy techniques that would punish my muscles severely, triggering growth. And of course, this methodology means that you can usually only train any muscle group once or twice a week max with overtraining.
Well… With VIFT (Visual Impact Freqency Training) that all goes out the window. Instead, the idea is to train in a way that is similar to how the Bulgarian Olympic Weight Lifting team trains, basically dropping down the intensity, and upping the frequency to as much as 6 days per week per lift!
Why train so frequently?
Well, it seems that they’ve proven that this repeated practice improves the neurological impulses sent to one’s muscle. So, by training your central nervous systems this way you are able to send more power to your muscles and become stronger. And this added strength makes your muscles more dense, giving your muscles that hard, chiseled look that can be so hard to achieve through traditional workout programs.
(Of course if you are looking to put on a lot of size too, the you would want to cycle oin some traditional “sarcoplasmic hypertrophy” training too…)
And, fyi – training more frequently in this case does NOT translate to needing to spend more hours in the gym.
Pros and Cons:
PRO 1 – This type of training is great if you feel like you’ve been stuck “in a rut” with your workouts lately. I think a lot of us get to a point where we are in pretty good shape, so we don’t feel that desperation to lose the beer gut or whatever, so we just stick with the same old workouts and don’t expect to see that much improvement now that we have hit a “plateau”. The cool thing about VIFT is that it was created to be like the ultimate “plateau buster”, in that not only will it help you get results quickly which will no doubt motivate you, but it is actually a fun way to workout.
PRO 2 – This type of training works to actually strengthen your bones and joints. I don’t have the space to go into all of the science of exactly how this works, but it is well documented. And as somebody who is getting older I can tell you that this is real concern of mine. I definitely want to avoid knee replacements and that sort of grizzly thing any way I possibly can.
PRO 3 – The program is easily consumable. Personally I don’t have 19 hours to spend watching a million vidoes or reading some 500 page book of scientific muscle building info. So I liked the fact that this program is something that you can go through in one sitting, and then go to the gym and actually take action and start seeing the results right away. There are some cool videos where a guy named Nate Miyaki shows you some of the exercises and goes into a bit more detail on a couple of the things mentioned in the main manual, but it’s not like you are going to need to invest a ton of time learning this stuff.
CON – Rusty says this program isn’t for newbies, and I’d agree with that. This program wasn’t designed for people who are just getting started with lifting so it doesn’t cover that basic stuff and really you should have a good foundation of lifting experience before giving this a try. If that sounds like you, Rusty’s Visual impact Muscle Building wouldn’t be a bad place to start.
Really this is a program I feel good about recommending to just about any guy out there who has a couple of years of experience lifting under his belt. And it doesn’t really matter what your goals are, whether you are looking to stay the same size, lose some weight, or get bigger. This isn’t a program that you will necessarily want to be doing year round, rather it is a great way to bust through your current plateau, strengthen your whole body, including your CNS and get some really awesome muscle definition going.
I HIGHLY recommend trying this program out for a couple of months! Click here for Instant Access To Visual Impact Frequency Training…
