Although this book has a few years under it's weight belt now, this is still loads of great techniques and a mass of different variations for each muscle group that I hadn't seen before. Each exercise is well explained and the routines laid out at the end of each chapter were interesting and gave you some idea of how to start putting your own together. Definitely buy if you have started a routine and are now getting a little bit bored of it and want to start something new.

As someone who has always played sports and liked to weight train for enjoyment, I found this book to be very helpfull. For anyone like me, who has been around gyms for years, knows the basic techniques but has got a bit bored of the same old excercises - THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU! It breaks down the body parts and has multiple excerises with descriptions and start and finish photos. It then has exercise variations and informative training routines of past body builders, giving a good guide to what you need to train and how often. If like me you only have time to train 3 times a week, it will give good routine variations so you don't get bored. An excellent buy!

this book was written 20 years ago, and as such is out of date. contains most of the exercises that you will come across in other training books, but also contains moves that make you cringe- stiff leg deadlift and the photos show people arching their lower back and showing bad form- asking for trouble, last but not least this dosen't include any ref to diet, stretching or risks involved in any of the lifts. The new rules of lifting by lou schuler or the mens health gym bible by michael mejia are more up to the minute, but as we all know no book holds all the answers...

It's author Peter Grymkowski was one of the top bodybuilders. At Gold's gym there trained they all the best. You can see photos of many of them. Not only exercises and their variations described, at the end of the book there is given compact information about training principles of gaining muscle. This book definately is not telling you train 5x5, it is telling you the truth about big muscle development
