More science, less fluff and superlatives.
I bought the book already. Enough with the sales pitch and get to the substance.
I will give the exercise and diet plans a try and endeavour to do them properly. Hope to still be glad I spent time and money on this book.
Had trouble finding the pdf initially. For anyone having the same issue... Click on the REFERENCING GUIDE LINK at the bottom of the 'Publisher's Summary' (same page as book and reviews).
There are a lot of reviews trying to steer you away from this book, but they are ALL coming from people who have never tried what John and Adam are preaching.
I bought the hard cover the day it came out (and later the audio book), and I was so inspired by what John and Adam had to say that I signed up with John's private internet coaching.
I'm completing my six month cycle and I have to tell you the results are truly transformational. In this 6 month journey, I have lost a total of 63 lbs. (from 249 to 186 and my body fat % has gone from the high 30's to about 8%.
Was it hard? Hell yes it was hard! I worked my butt off in the gym. I sacrificed sleep to get my workouts in. I ate very clean and I followed John's program to the letter every step of the way. I stopped thinking "this is dumb" when he had me doing lunges and goblet squats vs. the more traditional (and manly) power moves. I handed over control to him and his program and it worked out EXACTLY the way he said it would.
But what's interesting is now I don't miss any of the junk food and I actually PREFER eating clean. I feel great, mentally sharp, light, strong and very powerful.
So I again say... ignore the haters. If you are serious about changing your body and getting a totally fresh look at nutrition and exercise this is the book for you. I am a FIRM believer in their hormone optimization approach to fitness and nutrition. It has changed my life.
Everything you need is in here... a detailed nutritional program that you can easily customize to YOUR specific situation and a step by step exercise program.
Just do what he says (even though it may initially seem silly and weird) and I guarantee that you too will have a transformational story to tell very soon.
Hi, I'm a student at NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I tend to read mostly fiction , but I from time to time I read more serious literature as well. Follow me and I'll make sure to give you the goods.
I think this book is really awesome. I've been working out and even competing at the Professional level of athletics for a years now and a lot of the info in this book was very useful to me. I would love to see Audible get more books like this with useful attached PDF's. I think that this is a solid read for anyone who's interested in fitness. No matter what your knowledge level there's going to be something in the air that you're going to find useful. However, I can see someone who has never lifted before but who's interested in stepping into the realm of health and fitness benefiting from this book.
This book was full of anecdotes and hype designed to whip you up into a frenzy but after listening to over half the book, I had no idea how to hack my hormones, do a single better lift or anything useful for that matter.
Apparently a 'real world guide' means a ton of stupid bro talk and allusions to how much sex you should be having. I gave up after half the book and feeling like the big reveal was just around the corner only to be replaced by another useless anecdote.
It should be called Infomarketing: Engineering an Unreal Guide. Next!
The book begins and continues for several hours to pitch the book to you. Not sure why the authors thought this was necessary, the only way i can see this would be of benefit is if they offered the first 2/3's of the book for free and wanted to charge for the last third. The book felt like a cross between an infomercial and a motivational speech.
The end of the book has the dieting plan, which is gone over very quickly and briefly and probably consists of less than 20 minutes of the book's 7 hour runtime. They don't even mention most of the actual content of the diet and exercise plan (but they can be found on the pdf, and I don't believe there is even a way to get that pdf with the audible version).
The positive side of the book is that as far as I can tell most of the information in it (when it takes a break from telling you stories about video games and making references to Fight Club) seems to be pretty accurate. So if you don't know anything about how to eat, maybe this is a good book for you to pick up.
Let me save you the time and money...
Testosterone is awesome because science.
Don't eat breakfast, and after your cheat day don't eat anything for a day.
Do oddball exercises at the gym (Javelin Press??)
If you use the f word 300 times per chapter you seem cool.
I wanted to believe that this would work, tried it for six weeks, lost 2 lbs, BF% decreased a little (Omron 0.5%). Compared to previous methods (eating breakfast) on similar negative calorie diets I've been able to lose much more. Intermittent Fasting is great for keeping your weight the same, but seems pretty hard to get great fat loss results. Maybe I was doing it wrong (I tried to follow everything exactly).
The other thing that really was weird was their constant need to drop the F bomb, literally 2 times per page. For no reason. It made them seem less like "Exercise Scientists" (which they assure the listeners they are) and more like "Bro Scientists".
For my buck, I'd say skip this book.
This book is amazing and I have no doubt that this will catch on and become the next big thing for years to come. The new encyclopedia of fitness.
Very informative and easy to read
i love the idea of the what every you want for 8 hour then fast for 16 how easy is that and loss weight. great ideas
i am a straight female. how ever there so much info in this boy im now trying to get my boyfriend to read it men read this book. it has loads i info that you can use.
To much macho crap spread really thick in between the very few important facts. Need more substance less locker room B.S.
NO JUST THIS ONE
not after the hours of listening to this one.
These guys got paid for this. Really!
There may be some good takeaways but the book is poorly written and difficult to listen to. It's as though the author is in junior high and just learned about girls and swearing.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
