Publisher's Summary

Discover little-known nutrition and lifestyle tactics with Beyond Training!

What problems does Beyond Training solve?

Ironically, many people who appear to be fit and healthy on the outside struggle with health and lifestyle issues like insomnia, gas, bloating, low libido, aging too fast, injuries, performance plateaus, brain fog, and a basic lack of time for their career, family, and friends. So, this book supplies a step-by-step guide to eliminating all these issues and helping you get the most out of life while still achieving amazing feats of physical performance.

Who is Beyond Training for?

Beyond Training is for men and women who have made it out of couch potato mode and are ready to take things to the next level, whether that means shedding those last few extra pounds, finishing a 5K, or even crossing the finish line of an Ironman triathlon. Everyone from the casual exerciser to the weightlifter, CrossFitter, obstacle racer, marathoner, mountaineer, triathlete, swimmer, cyclist, runner, and biohacker will glean tons of knowledge and life-changing advice from this book.

What will Beyond Training do for you?

Beyond Training educates and entertains with underground training, nutrition, and lifestyle tactics that mean no guesswork, less confusion about what to eat, and elimination of workout frustrations so you can have more time and make more money, experience fewer frustrating health issues, have complete confidence that you are training the right way, and rid yourself of notorious body trouble spots, nagging injuries, and stubborn body fat.

    "Could not be more thorough! "

    This has to be the most complete health and fitness book ever written. Great stuff but can be a bit overwhelming. It should probably be approached as a reference book. Listening straight through gives you the impression that you could never do all these things. Just too many fixes that sound like snakeoil.

    "packed with information"

    I would read this several times over due to the density of information. The online resources go far to synthesise the concepts into a shorter simpler form.

    "Not worth the time"

    Ben puts in a big effort. but this book gives ideas that the common person isn't going to try because we don't have disposable income for gadgets that might or might not work. Ben simply is marketing an industry and tries to push the reader into buying ideas and products to build an industry. Pass on the book. all info is available free on Web youtube. he is just pushing his products too. He is trying to copy others Dave Asbrey Bulletproof by trying to create a market and capitalize on it. These guys are trying to sell stuff.

    "The book I have been looking for for the past year!"

    After a year of listening to many different Podcasts daily this book has summed up about 90% of what I have learned about health and fitness. I really enjoyed having the author narrate it also!

    "Complete and very well documented book"

    A complete guide of sport, nutrition and fitness. Good narration and supported with a lot of additional documents and information in every chapter. The problem is that not all the links provided in the book still works.

    "Save your money"

    Some of the information in this book was interesting but over the top ideas. If you have a lot of money to throw away then buy this book. As the advice is mostly to do with V02max testing, machines that simulate high altitude training DNA testing. As for his nutrition advice i wouldn't take it.. The guy has no idea what he is talking about. This book is him selling mostly himself and his products.

    "Unrealistic unless you are a pro"

    I'd love to see the size of this guys office, he seems to have about 20 pieces of equipment there as well as the 50k worth of stuff at home ! Lots of product references, this is little about method, more of a shopping list of everything available.

    "Tonnes of valuable information"

    This book contains a huge wealth of information, with even more detailed resources on Bens website. I've studied this field for some years, and I can honestly say most of the information and advice here seems pretty accurate and up to date. There may be parts you disagree with, as I did, but even then, there's many opportunities to research further. There's probably to much advice to implement in your own life, but there's enough to change your habits and your health for the better even if you implemented just 10% of the advice.
    Overall I found this informative, interesting, inspiring and motivational. My best purchase for some time.

    "Went off into 'woo woo' territory once too"

    Got fed up of him promoting his website and his incessant use if the phrase "bio-hack" had me feeling nauseous.

    I'm sure there are some useful tips and tricks but I couldn't be bothered to sift through the magic beans and snake oil to find them.

    Good book but so much information to take in. There are comprehensive and useful links but a physical copy of the book would be easier to follow and refer back to. If anything it makes me want to buy the book too
