God Awful

I very rarely give 1-star reviews for anything, but this book was so awful that I'm pretty sure all these other 5-star reviews were purchased. English is obviously not his first language and it sounds like it was run through Google Translate. Instead of saying "lift the [exercise] bar", he says "lift the pub" a synonym for one meaning of "bar" but the wrong word in the sentence. He says "the tardy author Ayn Rand..." (rather than "late" aka "dead") and soooo many other examples, like he calls free weight "immunity." It's literally unlistenable in sections. Plus, it's written like a high school book report, with god awful lists of definitions, divorced from any useful context. The author makes no pretense to explain why he knows what he knows, how he has any expertise or even indicate that he's ever lifted a pound in his life. The narrator is pretty mediocre at best, mispronouncing words and sometimes tripping over these non-sensical sentences. The advice itself seems bad to me, like "when you're starting off, you don't have to care about nutrition. In fact, maybe go heavy on the carbs, so you have energy for working out." And he's promising pretty dramatic results each and every month during ramp-up. Steer clear!

Super confused.

The way the book is read had some really weird parts were he would stumble over his words or use words that just don’t make any sense. In chapter 5 there is a part were he used “minutes” and “second” interchangeably. He literally tells you to hold an exercise for 45 to 60 minutes and then tells you to do it for 45 to 60 seconds in the next sentence. This happens multiple times. Wish I saw that other 1 start review before I wasted my time and money.

Got me excited again!

This book got me excited about improving my health and fitness again. I haven't yet implemented the Principle in this book, but plan to as soon as possible. I enjoyed the beginning part of the book where things were clarified for me about things I already knew about and learn new things of what I thought I knew about.

Informative Book

Great book. Its very informative. I have started applying some of the training techniques outlined in the book and I can report that I've started to see muscle growth, that I haven't experienced for a long time. I would recommend this book to anyone. I bought the audible book but plan on purchasing the Kindle edition. Tonnes of information in this book.

Great Book

Not perfect but a great book. I have read over 50 fitness books the last 20 years and this one is high on my list. Lost some detail towards the end of the book but otherwise it is great. If you have plateaued, this is the book for you. I noticed a difference from other systems after the second week. Follow it carefully and it does work 100%.

Informative and thorough

The book contains a wealth of information about nutrition, physiology, muscle myths, and of course workouts.: In eight weeks I've put on a full inch around my upper arms and my quads and across my shoulders (breadth).

Lots of confusion here. Saying stupid things.

Too much rubbish being spoken, for example, lower the weight over 4 minutes and lift over 2 minutes. Waste of time and money. The general idea is there like lifting weights under tension, but a lot of the terms and phrases are so mixed up.
