When you’ve been dieting for weeks or months on end, there is nothing better than kicking back and enjoying some cheat foods. However, a best-kept secret of the top competitors is learning how to take full advantage of the “POST-COMPETITION REBOUND.”
When you are able to manipulate this small 21-day window following a competition or lengthy cutting diet, the gains following this timeframe can be impressive. For the pros, this starting period is vital for proper offseason gains and can make or break their potential.
An Overview of Hany’s Rebound Protocol with Jeremy Buendia
Scientifically speaking, this is because muscles are primed for maximum macro and micro nutrient absorption. While taking time off is important, the truth is that someone who genuinely takes their physique seriously utilizes the offseason to grow and uses this small 21 day window post competition/cutting phase to accelerate the muscle recovery and hypertrophy associated with a post competition rebound.

Hany Rambod is currently being employed by top IFBB Pros such as Team Evogen’s Olympia Men’s Physique Champion JEREMY BUENDIA and Top 10 Mr. Olympia contender STEVE KUCLO. Their success on the grand stage speaks for itself, so give the POST-COMPETITION REBOUND PROTOCOL a try for 21-days and get ready for some explosive gains!
Understanding Food’s Role in the Rebound Protocol
Strength training with specific attention to muscular hypertrophy is the name of the game when it comes to maximizing gym time. Rambod highly emphasizes a muscle-volumizing protocol that employs both volume and intensity during the rebound phase. This will facilitate optimal muscle gains during this time, and ensure that the athlete is fully-utilizing the higher caloric intake. With an uptake in nutrients comes an uptake in training intensity because the body now has the fuel it needs to flip the switch from muscular retention (an area of emphasis during the cutting phase) to muscle gaining. The rebound period is an ideal time to utilize the FST-7 protocol.
For those unaware, Rambod’s protocol FST-7, stands for Fascial Stretch Training, and the seven refers to 7 sets, generally performed as the final exercise of a target bodypart. Essentially, you train that body part on any given day, heavy as you normally would, keeping the rep range between 8-12, but the last exercise you perform the seven sets to finish off that particular muscle, with minimal rest in between to get the best pump possible.
When it comes to cardio, the good news is that you will be backing off slightly. Rambod believes in doing a maintenance level of essential cardio. This ensures that conditioning does not fall by the wayside when an athlete begins to ramp up caloric intake. The goal is to maximize muscle gain while minimizing fat gain during the rebound phase.
