great book, very annoying narration

the book itself is informative on a broad range of topics and gives you just enough information without going into needless in-depth stuff that you can do on your own. the narration on the other hand is incredibly annoying, and why anybody would hire this person to narrate a book is beyond me. the internation used is the same internation that is used when being condescending, talking to stupid children, or a very privileged upper-class gated community golfing function. it's a great opportunity to learn self-control and stay focused on the information being provided from the book

Good information but the narrator ruins it.

The narrator sounds way too robotic. A lot of useful information is shared but it is very hard to listen to.

Generic overview at best

This is a generic overview of basically everything readily available on the internet. Not recommended.

Waste of time & money

Audio quality low.
Nothing scientific in book.
Very superficial. May be usefull for a complete novice, but again not worth the money

Bro science

Within 5 minutes, I heard "I buried myself in research" and "grass fed chicken". Full of bro science. There are some good info, but hard to extract from bs.

recommended

A friend bought this book so we could have a workout to do together. Our goal was to put on a lot of muscle. It worked! For those who know how to work out, but have maybe lost direction, this book gives you a selection of great programs to choose from. The author clearly knows what he is talking about. The book is well explained and easy . This is not just a workout program. It also includes diet, warm ups, and a ton of knowledge about the human body. I would recommend this book for everyone

great book

Such a good book. I bought this about 4 weeks ago and I'm on week 3 of the 3x/ week program. I love how author lays out the content and the exercise index is very easy to follow and understand.. I feel like I've gotten stronger on my front squat, bench, and hip thrust. Good work

five stars

I got this book with the hope that it would make me feel more comfortable designing my own programs. I've been lifting a little aimlessly for over 6 months now and while I enjoy lifting I never feel like any given program found online is quite right for me but I didn't want to just jump in and start making a program based on my favorite moves for fear that I would inadvertently leave a crucial movement pattern out that would leave me asymmetrical or weird looking or prone to injury. At the same time I felt like this fear was probably a bit ridiculous and a well designed program was probably not dependent on arcane wisdom I couldn't comprehend

No Science - Contradicts Himself

The training recommendations aren't too bad - that's definitely more of his area. However, the nutrition: yikes. He is all for the meat based Paleo Diet and IF, which is all good but his nutritional recommendations really aren't accurate and are contradictory. For example, eggs are paramount to a healthy lifestyle. He recognizes this, says to eat eggs, especially the yolks, because of the cholesterol they provide which is essential for testosterone production. Oh but wait, only 5% of your calories should be saturated fat (based on the outdated myth that saturated fat is bad) and now suddenly you should eat more egg whites for the protein. The only problem is the egg whites are pro-inflammatory and just a second ago he said we need to eat foods that lower inflammation. Really folks, just eat the whole egg. Or more yolks if anything. Another example is when he talks about magnesium. He says we should be getting 22mg per pound of body weight daily, which is absolutely insane! That would be almost 4g of magnesium for the typical adult male. He later then says a cup of cooked spinach would easily provide you with half of your recommended magnesium levels. A cup of spinach gives you 160mg, which would mean your daily intake should only be about 320mg (not 4000mg). And this is accurate. The real recommendation is 3mg per pound of body weight. As a final example, Paleo Diets are low carb. In his previous works he was touting high carb diets for bodybuilding, so I'm glad he came around to the notion that low carb diets are better for health and longevity but he's still a walking contradiction. Or, perhaps, he just hasn't done enough research. There needs to be more factual evidence and science based literature to support his claims, and I think the uneducated ear would be led astray by these recommendations. Just be careful and research for yourself (not on popular science articles, on actual peer-reviewed literature databases).

Not an 'audiobook' kind of book

this information just doesn't present well in audiobook form. basic information that can provide a good starting point, but this information is relatively easy to find elsewhere.
