The 'Charisma Man' Workout

Just a little bit of fun for todays blog...

Have you ever encountered "Charisma Man"?

Charisma Man is massive in Japan

If you have lived and worked in Asia, chances are you have seen numerous 'gentlemen le charisma magnifique' in all workplaces, nightclubs, etc.

Basically, Charisma Man is a normal, weedy, nerd-like character back home who gets no attention from girls. He struggles with all social situations. Yet when he steps off the plane in Asia, he turns into a muscular, handsome social magnet - attracting the attention of every asian girl around him!

Charisma Man lands in Japan!

But life is not so straight forward for CM. Every now and then he bumps into arch-enemy "Evil Western Woman" who exposes him for the skinny geek he really is!

In the new gym where i work "Pure fitness Singapore" there is an ever-growing appreciation society for CM and recently i noticed that some of the guys were training specifically to achieve that 'charisma man look' for evenings out. Back home i think we use to call it 'saturday sets' or 'disco training'. Here we now call it the Charisma man workout.

The goal

Simples... Pump as much blood into the 'T shirt muscles' to create the illusion that you are actually that muscular all through the day. Here, we are calling it the 'Charisma effect' which is useful in any night spots/social gathering.

The charisma principles

1. No leg training! are you insane? Leg training is for athletes! Nobody asks to see your lower body development on the dance-floor, All upper, all anterior!

2. No sleeves! A Vest MUST be worn when completing the Charisma man workout. Tank tops are ok - but vest preferable.

3. Forced reps on every set... get the full charisma pump!

4. You can never perform enough chest exercises in one session.

"i have definitely felt the charisma man effect after this workout! Usually i would attract 3-5 different females on any given night in Singapore, now its easily in the double figures. I always use the charisma principles in the gym before hitting the town... why wouldn't you?"

Ben Salter, Pure Fitness Manager and Singapore charisma man

Are you ready to multiply your charisma by 300% in one session? lets begin...

A1. Bench press 4 x 10

Great start to getting a big charismatic chest pump, slam on the weights - forget about form and depth! stroke your ego and throw as much weight on the bar as you think would impress the other guys watching you smash through these sets! Rest for 2 minutes between sets by texting friends and potential lady targets of your possible locations that evening.

B1. Incline DB press (supersetted with DB flye) 3 x 12/12

Had enough chest? See principle 4 above. Sculpt your pecs with this great combo, ease down on the weight and squeeze hard on each rep for a full charisma pump.

C1. Seated shoulder press 2 sets x max

Want 2 cannonballs filling your XS shirt this weekend? perform 2 sets of this shoulder exercise to maxm the ladies will appreciate it in a few hours time.

D1. DB front raise (supersetted with Cable side raise) 3 x 10/10

Its all about the pump! slow and controlled until you can see veins coming through your skin... dont stop the set until someone in the gym shouts:

"Oh my god, that guys' shoulders are ridiculous!"

Time to bring out the big guns.....!

"When i first arrived in Singapore i had no charisma, i was down on my luck and needed a change. Some of the guys taught me the charisma principles and girls started to talk to me. I also use the workout on mondays to top-up from the weekend, just in case"

"Big" Ron Hannerfield, Pure fitness sales manager

E1. Cable tricep extension (supersetted with Standing DB bicep curls)

Fill your sleeves with this arm combo! use a weight that you can swing up... forget technique, you are charisma man and your in the 'gun-show' so start shooting!

F1. EZ reverse curls into EZ curls (20 reps each)

More guns? why not! slam this combo and turn your slow-worms into pythons... "train for the vein!"

Thats it, fellow Charisma men, go forth and attract more women. They deserve you!
