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
I have been weight lifting for 6 six and done a lot of the thing Matt describes which have led to periods of stagnation. Matt's emphasis on progressive overloading best describes the way I have achieved what I have. However the whole package of knowledge with practical methods to achieve growth in strength is a great confirmation of my intuitions and knowledge that I've gained to achieve strength. I recommend this no nonsense straight talking approach to serious seekers after strength and power!!! Good on you Matt!!!!
"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.
"No nonsense fitness book"
The voice of the narrator is great. The information given in the book is clear, concise and most importantly evidence based. I'm a 40 year old gym newbie looking to bulk up and get lean, I found the book very useful, particularly on what exercises are most effective and reps. I recommend this book
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"

"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!!!
