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.
This book is one of very few that is just the nuts and bolts, no hype.
I have been reading health books for over 25 years and I would have to put this one somewhere in the top ten. Its a must have for anyones library that take their health serious and cares about their future health
Really enjoyed the clear content and will be listening again many times over the years. A real must listen for all
If you haven't bought this book, why not??! It surpasses all the crap advice that is out there and provides the essential information to achieve successful results!!
A must buy!!
"A must have"
fantastic book! so much info about training and development it's a must have if your looking forward a new adventure
"fresh take on fitness"
really enjoyed this book, using actual science to prove claims. simple to understand but well explained. Different to all the other type of fitness books and articles I have ever seen. bring on the fitness revolution
If you are interested in how to drastically improve your overall fitness and physique, quit reading this and just buy the damn thing, to sum it up, its truly life-changing.
So informative, extremely well explained. A wealth of knowledge. So many interesting subjects and EVERYTHING is covered. Even implementing small parts of this, I have seen substantial strength gains in only like 3-4 weeks. A MUST BUY for anyone wanting to understand the science behind this fitness game!!!
"Great!! Wish I had found it earlier!"
The book doesn’t make any outrageous unrealistic claims but instead suggests realistic goals. It is packed with clear advice backed up by studies and papers which adds credibility. I have been following the workout program and nutrition advice and seen good results. I found the nutritional information one of the most valuable aspects of the book. It starts which an overview and drills down into details such as protein absorption rates, post work out meal macro ratio to body weight etc. I wish I had found this book years ago and regularly highly recommend it to others.
Wish I listened to this book before I started working out,hope to see some results in the next year.I will report back here in 12 months to let you all know
"very useful and informative"
finally a book to cut through the fitness myths and provide information based on research
"Essential for beginners & experienced lifters"
There are a lot of myths and conflicting information surrounding the fitness industry. This books gives a simple, well researched and comprehensive guide on how to get in shape. It covers everything from mindset and dieting to exercise techniques & supplements. Scientific research is referenced throughout. I have been training for a while and still found this very helpful. I wish I had it when I started out.
The section on "inner game" was especially poignant and can be applied to several areas in your life.
The formulas for calculating daily macros and calorie intake sound a little complicated when you hear them. It would be useful for it to be contained in some sort of supplementary text report.
