Format: Paperback
This is a classic book. No photos, all type.
McRobert starts by outlining what a typical drug free person can expect to achieve in size and strength.
He then methodically maps out the route to success.
If you have tried and failed on your routines gleamed from bodybuilding mags, despite dedication, and dieting then this book is for you.
McRobert blows the lid on why those routines don't work. Why 90% of the people in gyms are training regularly yet getting nowhere.
Buy this book. Try what he recommends, then post your review here!!!!

Finally a weight training book for us average guys! 13 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brawn is the book most "average" people who weight train have been waiting for for years.Instead of wasting your valuable time,money and most of all EFFORT on following the books and routines by the "champions", buy this book and begin to realize your true potential.Crammed with the most useful information I have read in years, and I have been involved in weight training for 20+ years and have a degree in Physical Education and let me tell you, you'll never do better than this book!Thank you Stuart McRobert, you've done the weight training world a great service, I'm now a huge fan!

A great book with "down to earth" advice on training 10 April 1999
By brant_ohearn@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For a mind that is dominated by the "more is better principle" with regards to weight training,this book will eliminate that mind set with sound and honest advice for the typical trainer. The training methods espoused by some of the "guru's" in the fitness industry,namely, programs thrown together based on high volume training, will not yield any meaningful results for the typical trainer who has a life outside of the gym. McRobert's advice for abbreviated training and cycling alone are already well worth the price, but this book is more. McRobert has a unique motivating style and talks about his training experiences when he was younger.He talks about the desire that everyone who wants a better physique has, and his lack of progress when following routines of the top "champions". He shows that desire is not always synonymous with results. Only desire and training based on rational principles can bring results. This book simply can't be ignored for those who are serious about building the physique they have always wanted. This is the book that you want by your side when you begin training. It will save for you the most precious thing of all: time.

Strength and Body Building for the genetically average 23 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you fall in the category of "gentically average" and 99% of us do, you cannot make progress using routines and methods promoted by the body building "muscle glossies". Stuart McRoberts understands this and takes a real world approach to becoming bigger and stronger. Buy this book NOW! It will change the way you approach strength and size training forever.

I will share my secret...this book should be a reference boo 22 Nov 1998
By Rafatja@ibm.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So far I've read about three books on the subject and I've read several magazines and I must say that this book is by far THE BEST! I didn't want to say this because I was going to keep this book my own personal secret, but being as it is that Mr. McRobert's has done such an excellent job in writing it, (and in terms of the usefulness of the content) I felt that I really should make a comment about it. I also feel sorry for the vast majority of people who work out without the knowledge that this book provides. If you're into getting big read this book! By the way this book is a bit lengthy and challenging to read, but it's well worth it!

Great book 11 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the few books out there that actually focuses on methods that really work! I've read other books on the subject but most of them discuss methods which probably work only on professional steroid-taking bodybuilders. His techniques are practical and best of all actually work!
