Miloš Šarčev is known for his excellent muscular proportion, aesthetic shape, balance, symmetry and conditioning. His presence on stage was one of perfection and detail. His smooth and artistic posing routines made him stand out above the rest.
His training routines are all about maximum stimulation of muscle fibers utilising wide variety of different training techniques, angles, grips, stances, range of motion, tempo…etc.
They consist of three major groups of movements.
1) Compound exercises performed explosively and with heavy weight,
2) Exercises with moderate weight and sets in the 8-12 repetition protocol and
3) Multi-exercise sets that are performed one exercise after another with as little rest in between sets as possible. These exercises stimulate Type 1 slow twitch muscle fibers and type 2 a and b fast twitch muscle fibers.
He also pioneered intake of specific nutritional sport supplements pre,during and post training, based on his HYPEREMIA ADVANTAGE PRINCIPLE (increased blood flow to the working muscles during the training).
