Arnold Book Review:

Five-time Mr. Universe, seven-time Mr. Olympia, and Mr. World, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the name in bodybuilding. Here is his classic bestselling autobiography, which explains how the “Austrian Oak” came to the sport of bodybuilding and aspired to be the star he has become. I still remember that first visit to the bodybuilding gym. I had never seen anyone lifting weights before. Those guys were huge and brutal….The weight lifters shone with sweat; they were powerful looking, Herculean. And there it was before me—my life, the answer I'd been seeking. It clicked. It was something I suddenly just seemed to reach out and find, as if I'd been crossing a suspended bridge and finally stepped off onto solid ground. Arnold shares his fitness and training secrets—demonstrating with a comprehensive step-by-step program and dietary hints how to use bodybuilding for better health. His program includes a special four-day regimen of specific exercises to develop individual muscle groups—each exercise illustrated with photos of Arnold in action. For fans and would-be bodybuilders, this is Arnold in his own words.

Scrawny to Brawny Book Review:

A state-of-the-art weight-lifting and nutritional blueprint for "skinny" guys who want to pack on muscle Let's face it, naturally skinny guys are at a distinct genetic disadvantage when it comes to building muscle mass. But with the proper advice, these "hardgainers" definitely can realize their fitness goals. In Scrawny to Brawny, the authors draw on their years of practical experience as private strength and nutrition coaches to provide hardgainers with: • A progressive, state-of-the-art program that optimizes results with shorter, less frequent workouts that maximize compound exercises • A unique, action-based perspective on nutrition that shows how to prepare quick muscle-building meals and snacks-and how to take advantage of several critical times in the day when muscle growth can be stimulated by food intake • Vital information on how to identify and fix any weak links in their physiques that may be precursors to injury Designed not only for frustrated adult hardgainers but also--with its strong anti-steroid message--a terrific book for the large teen market, Scrawny to Brawny fills a significant gap in the weight-lifting arsenal.

Bodybuilding Book Review:

The popularity of bodybuilding is at an all-time high, and the sport is continuing to grow. But seasoned competitors and beginners often have questions about how to look their best on show day. Written by expert bodybuilding coaches Peter Fitschen and Cliff Wilson, Bodybuilding: The Complete Contest Preparation Handbook will guide you through every step of the process to select a competition, prepare for the contest, and make the transition to the off-season. With no other book like it on the market, Bodybuilding offers you scientifically supported and experience-based guidelines to help you have your best show ever. Bodybuilding takes the guesswork out of preparing for a contest and answers common questions such as these: How do I choose the competition and division that are right for me? What mandatory poses do I need to learn for my competition? What is the best workout to do during contest prep? What should I do if I start to spill over during peak week? How long is too long to maintain stage-lean levels of body fat? The authors have created an easily accessible handbook that guides you step by step. The chapters begin with a background of the sport, followed by a discussion of the competitive division options for both men and women. The next chapters will help you through the process of obtaining a stage-ready physique with an evidence-based approach that combines scientific literature with practical experience. These chapters discuss important topics such as nutrition, training, and preparation timing. The next chapters address posing, peak week, tanning, and a number of other topics that will help you bring your most polished physique to the stage. More than 60 full-color photos show body types for each division and each mandatory pose, offering a visual guide to the proper positions for each pose. You will also find information on how to handle the transition to the off-season. With unparalleled detail, Bodybuilding is your go-to guide for bodybuilding success! CE exam available!

Exercised Book Review:

"This highly engaging landmark work, a natural history of exercise--by the author of the best seller The Story of the Human Body--seeks to answer a fundamental question: were you born to run or rest The first three parts of Exercised roughly follow the evolutionary story of human physical activity and inactivity, even as each chapter shatters a particular myth about exercise. Because we cannot understand physical activity without understanding its absence, Part One begins with physical inactivity. What are our bodies doing when we take it easy, including when we sit or sleep? Part Two explores physical activities that require speed, strength, and power, such as sprinting, lifting, and fighting. Part Three surveys physical activities that involve endurance, such as walking, running, or dancing, as well as their effect on aging. Part Four considers how anthropological and evolutionary approaches can help us exercise better in the modern world. How can we more effectively manage to exercise, and in what ways? To what extent, how, and why do different types and durations of exercise help prevent or treat the major diseases that are likely to make us sick and kill us?"--

Strength Training Revolution Book Review:

BONUS: Buy the Paperback Version from Amazon and Get FREE Access to the Kindle Version If you've encountered plateaus with your current strength training program and you can't seem to get over this slump no matter what you do, then keep reading... What's your max squat? How much ya bench? What's your best deadlift? Can you press your bodyweight? Today, pushing quantifiable expressions of strength, like your maxes, is becoming increasingly ubiquitous. However, though strength may be specific, real strength is much more than a powerlifting total - it's about resilience, capability and adaptability. It's survival of the fittest after all, not the strongest. But most strength training programs emphasize mastering only one factor of strength - technicality via neuromuscular efficiency, which happens to be the least transferable factor of strength too. There are other factors of strength that should be trained, which offer more carryover to other sports as well as to other aspects of life. In fact, your training should be specific to you, and it should be dependent on your training advancement, goals and weaknesses. Yet I see many strength enthusiasts make the same mistake I once made Get addicted to the simplicity of beginner linear progression programs and try to run them forever. But proper training doesn't have to be complicated; you can continue to have simple programming as you enter the intermediate and advanced stages of your lifting career. With my simple yet revolutionary 4-step training system, train all factors of strength at the same time and become a stronger, better and more confident you. Referencing some of the best powerlifting and strength coaches, discover: What your training advancement is according to a comprehensive classification chart compiled from 5 different coaches, and how to correct your training so that it matches your real experience level (pg. 61) What to prioritize at each training advancement, and why most of you should not be fixated on either technical mastery or periodization (pg. 74) How to properly autoregulate your training using RPE according to its founder, champion powerlifter and renowned powerlifting coach, Mike Tuchscherer (pg. 110) What you know about volume is WRONG: Discover how to properly measure and regulate training volume according to 2 experts, a champion powerlifter and an Olympic coach (pg. 112) What real strength entails and, contrary to Mark Bell's claim that strength is never a weakness, how and when strength is a weakness (pg. 8) The most important training variable no one talks about, and 2 equally important ones that are forgotten (ignore these and you will never reach your potential) (pg. 121, 125) Why exercises like the deadlift are great for displaying strength, but aren't the best for developing strength (and what the best exercises for developing strength actually are!) (pg. 135) Why you can benefit from dropping the overhead press from your strength training arsenal, according to Glenn Pendlay, Dr. Mike Israetel, and more (pg. 153) What the greatest indicator of strength is, and how to best develop it according to evidence-based researchers who squat well over 600 lbs (pg. 41) Whether you are a novice running Starting Strength or are a seasoned powerlifter with over 400 Wilks, you too can benefit from reading this book. With observations from Mark Rippetoe, Chad Wesley Smith, Greg Nuckols, and more, you will find both practical and theoretical advice on how to take your training to the next level.

"Muscle, Smoke and Mirrors" is the rise and fall of what was truly once an extraordinary discipline associated with a term known as "Physical Culture." Experience what bodybuilding was originally and learn just exactly what "Physical Culture" really is. See what growing philanthropic power flexed its financial and political muscles to foster its corporate agenda, compromising human health internationally. Read how the merger of technology and politics culminated in the industrialization, commercialization, federalization, internationalization and finally the STERILIZATION of a nation's food supply, rendering it suspect not only to the general public; but also to the most elite of athletes.

Ultimately, the factions of this industry would grow powerful and manipulative while fighting for control over the Game.

Volume I of "Muscle, Smoke and Mirrors" is truly the untold stories surrounding "Bodybuilding's Amazing Nutritional Origins."
