Here's the deal: Burning fat, building muscle, and staying in fantastic shape is not as complicated as the “experts” make it out to be.

Say good-bye to:

  • Jogging for hours on end
  • Crazy 300-bpm workouts that can be dangerous

You also don’t have to live on low-carb island or restrict yourself to water and skipping meals just to lose weight and gain it all back.

This audiobook is also for those frustrated from weight training who aren't getting the results they should be getting.... I want you to find out the missing pieces that are holding you back so you can finally get the results you deserve.

Lastly, Bodybuilding Encyclopedia is not just about muscle. It incorporates mind-set training and exercise routines you can use in your lifestyle without slaving away in the gym with no results.

Good info

Lots if good info, but also lots of contradictions. I learned alot from this book, well it was atleast a good place to start from and build with my own solid info for research. Glad i got the book but its not the best overall. The keto recipes was nice too.

best book

A good guide for those who are going to become a good bodybuilder or a person who follows their way of life. I found many useful tables that contain recommendations for training and also for balanced nutrition

Garbage

More bad info than good. Seems to be geared toward someone that’s never lifted or has zero knowledge of nutrition, but gives often bad/false advice and will use examples of you “benching 350lbs”. If you’ve made it anywhere close to 350lbs you probably already know more than this book will teach you. Further, it’s partially the writing and partially the person reading it to you, but it’s like you’re being talked to as if you’re a toddler. It’s comical. Also, if someone says “trust me” over and over again, I think that’s the first sign that maybe they shouldn’t be trusted. It seems every chapter there’s one or two “trust me”s. Just bad advice, like telling you not to do full deadlifts, only do them off a rack, or to put your feet up on the bench while benching, or to look up high when squatting. No focus on mechanics and even going so far as to say lifting improperly is no big deal. While there may be a place for cheats as an experienced lifter, to flat out teach you wrong out of the gate see irresponsible. Part of the nutrition section will even suggest eating cheap $1 doughnuts and other junk food, while other parts spend two hours telling you not to eat carbs... and everything in between. Not all info is bad, and some principles have a solid foundation, and much of it will work with a new lifter, but there are sooo many better resources via podcast, YouTube, or even other audio books like “Bigger, Leaner, Stronger”. In my opinion this book is a waste of a credit.

what a piece of s@#!

This book is full of misinformation, bad narration, antiquated methodologies that have been debunked by actual research, and grammatical errors. Don't waste your time, money, or credits
