I thought the book was filled with a lot of good information. It can sometimes be a bit difficult to follow some facts and figures as an audiobook compared to the printed or ebook versions. There is however a bonus supplement PDF that sounds promising as a quick reference.
This book is perfect for people who want to get stronger the fastest way possible for natural athletes. This book basically put everything you need to know about training in one book. Then it told you how to work off of that for the rest of your life!
I'm an experience natural bodybuilder and the author hits all the basic principles I have researched and believed since my lifting career has started. From lifting, to simple dieting and supplementation. (10 years lifting/bodybuilding)
As someone who spent years studying kinesiology, I share a lot of the same view points touched on in this book by Mr. Matthews. This really is a no BS approach to exercise, supplementation, and dieting. I have been telling my friends these things for years. Great book!
this book is about back to basics. everything I learned when I first started working out and then some. it really works
I have yet to start Mike's workout routine, but this book has been very valuable to me. He states numerous facts about nutrition and training that I didn't know prior, while effectively backing them up with immense amounts of research. He also disproves many of the exercise and diet myths that I had heard and even believed with convincing evidence. This is, in my opinion, a great book for laymen like myself who have not done in-depth study into the world of strength training.
Great book all the information you need to eat right, lift safely, and build strong lean muscle, he also weeds out all the crap to save you time and money.
"Brilliant and educational!"
Loved this book from start to finish, very informative and easy to understand. Cant wait to get started now!!!
You always feel it might be better read than listened to but the content is solid, insightful and knowledgeable. As a returning bodybuilder it reconfirms everything I knew and builds upon it with some up to date science and scientific findings. The guy really knows his stuff and I live his no-nonsense approach and his courage to speak out against the BS makes money but not bodies. If you're starting out, coming back like me or currently wondering why you're working so hard for little gain, this book has it all.
"Interesting but I don't agree with everything"
The principles of this book were interesting however I have read many current books that take the latest research regarding calories, fat consumption and exercise. These seem to oppose some of the principles of this book. My only area of main interest was increasing muscle growth in size which is a very small chapter in this book. For anyone looking to get fitter I would recommend it as a light read but keep an open mind when it comes to diet and fat consumption.
Yes , I have already listened through twice and will probably listen again, Chock full of scientifically backed information
"Knowledgeable, concise and well structured guide"
Every paragraph imparted knowledge that rang true and will help improve your approach to fitness
Great book full of good educational information. Great for beginners or someone just wanting to step up their game.
Extremely helpful in bringing back the basic principles of training. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a solid understanding of basic training.
"love this guy"
this book will change your life, he makes working out and eating simple, you still have to work hard in the gym and watching your food but with this knowledge you will succeed, good luck all.
"Gets the facts right."
This is the book to get for building muscle and getting fitter.
The narration is crystal clear for the listener and easy to understand.
I highly recommend it.
"A great book but half complete via Audio Book"
I will review this book again in 3 months to see if I have any advanced gains or not based on the theory in this book.
I would recommend not getting the audio book, you will have no choice but to buy the hard copy too as all the illustrations, plans and steps are refered to throughout the book but obviously are only in the actual book. The audio book tries to fill in the gaps but its not good enough.
All in all, its a great book for learning about nutrition, anatomy and exercises.
Some of it goes into to much detail I think and other areas it lacks. But all in all I have been training for 10 years and this book, if correct in its thesis would mean I have been training wrong. So I plan on changing everything to suit this book and give it a good go.
