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 an alumi of NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I'll give you guys 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.
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).
Maybe, but I doubt it.
Audible book a sales pitch for the attached PDF
What I wanted them to "show me" in the audible book is what's in the PDF.
I thought I'd be audibly walked through the diet and maybe a couple of work-outs. That didn't happen. It's in the PDF they kept saying.
If I wanted to read a PDF I would have bought a PDF.
I think they missed a huge opportunity here.
kind of, only time will tell.
When I turned it off when they started thanking mom, grandma, and who knows who else.
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.
Engineering The Alpha has ironically come into my world weeks into a renewed commitment to transform my body and assert a level of alpha status that exceeds even my youthful college physique and conditioning. This book not only gets your head in the right place and your spirit pumped way up, it busts myths and arms you with a blueprint for how to achieve the book's claim. I'm incredibly excited to put this knowledge into practice.
packed full of info. well written well thought out. these guys did their research! tons of it! and!... i loved how it was read. all though it did start out a little slow and maybe a tad dry, they did a amazing job. you can tell they are reading, but its like they are talking to you.
no idea... this was recomended to me and had high stars.. this is all i need
personal experence. they not only do they apply this them selves, but arnold schortsanager has also. (forgive my spelling)
laugh. yes. a lot.
my reaction at the end was, "ok lets get the F up and start"
This is the best money I have spent. It told the real key factors about how to be healthy and strong. Some ideas seem very "crazy", but after you try it out, it worked. It answered a lot of question I used have.
It's mostly good, so I'll start with the bad: i) Too much cursing for cursing's sake ii) I would have liked a bit more of a focus on the workout, without it being so reliant upon the PDF iii) The narrative around the psychological and physiological steps suggested worked for me, though is at times self-indulgent and on occasions, dilutes the overall message iv) a charted single sheet version of each workout would have been a big help in addition to the comprehensive diagram-centric 10+ pages. Good: i) Accessible intro to intermittent fasting ii) Bro science explained well with real, accessible science iii) refreshing focus on hormonal function iv) Lifestyle tips you didn't know you needed v) Comprehensive, adaptive workout with diagrams vi) workout coupled with comprehensive, easy to manipulate diet.
I'll be testing the advice out in more detail, I'm one day in, but as a personal trainer, this book gets a solid four stars upon one read.
the audio doesn't describe the full workout or diet because they theres a pdf that comes with this audio ...HOWEVER THERES NO WAY TO RETRIEVE IT OR COMMUNICATEWITH ANYONE to get it...I think I found the program online and like it but am frustrated with how much work I had to do to get the program on my own
