This should have never been made into an audio book. I've not seen it in print, but it reads like page after page of charts and tables. Format aside, there's nothing new here, wish I had my credit back.
The book did not turn me off to fitness books, but I'll think twice before I get another one.
I am considering buying the print for reference, but loved the audio for first time and repeat listens while commuting.
I don't have a comparison.
I liked the breakdown on nutrition, and the calorie needs to gain muscle, or lose fat.
I really just liked the detailed step by step plans, from food, to lifting and cardio. It was enough info to explain what was needed, but not so long to bore you. No fluff.
I've really enjoyed listening to the podcast and reading his regular blogposts also. I teach social media, blogging and email marketing to the medical industry, and Mike's work ethic really stands out. He responds, and engages well with people who comment on FB, and his blog. His level of commitment to his industry is apparent.
This book lays out the fundamentals of building your body correctly. There is so much crap out there and Michael Matthews is straight forward and to the point and cuts through all the "Bro Science" out there. Matthews also debunks crazy diets, such as low carb. He backs his method with facts from studies and his experiences. This is not a diet book, it is about working hard and eating right and seeing results. I have listen to it twice, it is an easy listen and not too long.
It is simple to understand his plan and follow it.
Justus is easy to listen to, he is clear and funny at times when it calls for it.
Bigger, Leaner, Stronger: The truth about building the body you want
Michael Matthews also is very active on twitter, his website and email. He offers support and information to clarify questions about the book. He freely offers great information through Twitter and his blog posts.
This was a breath of fresh air to read. Mike clarifies a lot information for us especially with regards to the supplement industry and food nutrition both of which can be daunting when starting out. I would highly recommend this book, if you were to have only one book on fitness this is the one. Cheers,
Compound movements are king for overall training success!
Good voice, tempo.
It was refreshing to read a book that takes us back to the basics of training. In a world full of exercise clutter the principles and methods was refreshing.
Over the last 10 years, I've read many books on exercise and nutrition and this is by far my favorite. It cuts through all the hype and just gives you the facts on how to get in fantastic shape. It is easy to listen to and understand as an audio book. The content is supported by the latest science and cuts through all the fad ideas that are floating around out there. It provides a perfect exercise and dieting framework to get you in fantastic shape. There are no gimmicks or false promises in this book; it sticks to what has truly worked for all the people that are in awesome shape without the use of steroids.
It takes a lot of hard work to get in great shape and there is just no way around that, but the road is MUCH easier if you are being as effective as possible with your workouts, diet, and supplementation. You can't go wrong with this book if you follow it to the letter.
Love to listen audio-books
Just to begin with, I really like this book. Once I got it on kindle I Kept reading this everyday and now, I can take it to my gym and listen to it, while getting motivated wit the information!!!
Mike thanks a lot for this and congratulations for this great Book
The Life Changer
The most memorable moments I remember from "BLS" is the proper way to do my workouts without wasting a lot of time. Everyone is busy these days and there is little time to waste. This book taught me how to optimize my time in the gym.
Yes, "Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making: Build Healthy Muscle"... Bigger, Leaner, Stronger is a very similar style of reading from Jeff Justus. They are both very easy to listen to.
Bigger Leaner Stronger- It's the title that sums up everything you can be.
I loved listening to this book and I plan on listening to it again. I do recommend purchasing the paper book as well to get the workout plans written down, but you can also write down the workouts as it is read to you. I'd buy this again and have recommended this to numerous friends and family members.
The information provided in the book is based on real scientific findings. I have already started following the suggestions explained in the books, and believe or not, I am already getting nice results after only 3 weeks!
So far, I didn't really found any book like it. This book has everything you need to know about nutrition and training, explained in a very simple way.
I liked the way in which the reader talks. For example, the enphasis used when he reads makes everything even more convincing!
Not at all! I looked forward for the next page! In every page there is useful information you can use for your goals.
I've already listened to it twice. there is a lot of info packed into this short book.
Michael Matthews does a great job cutting through all the workout BS and getting down to the basics of lifting. As a beginner I found it a perfect resource. It could easily be titled, "Lifting 101." After reading this book you will have the knowledge you need to confidently pursue your fitness goals. I also have to mention that I emailed the author a question and he got back to me the same day. How many fitness experts will do that?
