5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK!, 12 Aug. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Build Healthy Muscle Series) (Paperback)
I must have read through around 10-15 weight training books along with various other information from internet sites having come away feeling confused or robbed of my hard earned cash. This book on the other hand is a revelation, it strips back all the rubbish you're led to believe to be true and gets down to the basics and hard facts of weight training. It also delves in to how your body functions and what you should be feeding it to make it run properly, which in turn goes in to subjects such as fat loss and again it's straight to the point no nonsense stuff. This may all seem like fairly obvious stuff but it's surprising how much your head gets filled with rubbish which you eventually hold to be true.
This book will apply to a wide audience as it's not just aimed at those who want to be enormous, you can take away so much more from it and tailor it to suit your end goal. After reading this you'll feel far more informed as to how foods, excersises and they're quantities actually effect your body and from there on it's up to you what you decide to do with it. 10 out of 10 and a must have!

Hi Mike, Im interested in this book. Is this book just for people that want to get "ripped". Will there be programs within the book for people that just want to improve fitness and tone up. I bought the British Army fitness guide first and after that I would just like to improve muscle tone without going too deep into weight lifting etc. Any insights appreciated. Thanks

Hey Davey,

Thanks for writing. You can use the dietary and training advice in this book to achieve whatever look you want. If you just want to lose a few percent of body fat and gain a bit of muscle, my program makes it fast and easy. It does require that you lift weights, however.

I'm going to be writing an entire book on bodyweight training, but I have to finish a couple other projects first.

If you end up getting the book and have any questions as to how you should best go about training and such, you can email me any time and I'll be happy to help!

Mike

Hi Mike,

I really like this book, but I was just wondering if you could tell me/us how you would calculate 1RM.

I probably missed it in the book :-)

Thanks!

Thanks! Really glad you liked the book.

The easiest way to calculate 1RM is to use a calculator online. Here's a good one:

Hope that helps!
