    Great overview of the muscle groups and exercises to get you started on the journey. I like to learn the fundamentals and understand how the body works. This book is not for the professionals who have been in the fitness industry for a while but everyone will find some interesting info here. Also, I liked a detailed explanation on tempo and how to vary it in workouts.

    I'm a pretty fit guy. Have been working out consistently for about 13 years now. But for the past few years I'd been doing mainly body weight exercises. So when my friend urged me to get back into weight training, this book came with a high recommendation. It's very thorough and taught me a lot about muscle biology that I didn't know. And it works if you follow the plan. I've easily put on 15 pounds of muscle, and I started with the "Beginner" program (at the book's suggestion). Recommended. I'm a pretty fit guy.

    Awesome book. Has an introductory section with lots of information about how muscles are built and then has a HUGE illustrated section with different exercises broken down by muscle group. Finally it has three 6-month workout programs-beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Simply awesome.

    I didn't like this book. What first put me off is the fact that the illustrations did not show the various depth of the muscles. And I also didnt like the writing style. It sounded way too fraternal and not proffesional enough.I want to point out that Ian King is not a physiotherapist or or a doctor or a sports science professional he's just a gym bro. Yes he's worked with professional athletes but he's basically a knowledgeable gym bro and not a professional. And you can pick that up a lot of t I didn't like this book.

This is a good book for beginners but if you want to go in depth don't waste your time with this.

    I followed the entire plan of this book. My lifts went through the roof and my musculature was amazing. I managed huge deadlifts without problem. My back became incredibly strong. These plans changed my hormonal environment naturally. No steroids, I could arm curl over 100 kg after a 60 hour working week. If you're tough enough to take the pain for the gain, I'd thoroughly recommend this program. I'd combine with some conditioning though. I followed the entire plan of this book.

    The book is straightforward and easy to read. It starts with some light background on body muscle groups and workout theory, but doesn't waste time being academic. It defines exactly what you should be doing in each week: stretches, warmups, exercises, reps, tempo, etc. Illustrations abound. The simple, explicit direction is what makes it an attractive choice for a workout book. Of course, I can't truly review it until I see if it works... The book is straightforward and easy to read.

    Wonderful large photos describe each exercise. If you start out as a beginner, the workout progression will take you two years to complete. Each minor stage takes three weeks during which a range of exercises are prescribed. They are challenging and well planned. When I finally reach the final advanced workout one day, I'll be back to let you know what the end result was. Wonderful large photos describe each exercise.

    Great Book and contains an amazing workout. i realized how great it really as i got older and more experienced with gym workout. right now after almost 3 years of absent, i returned to it and will be using the workouts again. This just shows that time has no effect on this masterpiece of muscle galore.

    Not impressed. Great to look at, professional pictures and outstanding presentation. But when I get a workout book I want the content to make me stronger. The information presented here is pretty generic and isn't any different from what you'd find in popular men's fitness magazines. Not impressed.

    An excellent guide, with sections on anatomy, nutrition, stretching, proper form for each exercise, and pre-designed weightlifting programs.

    If you really want to understand how muscles work, this book will teach you in laymen's terms. Very interesting and easy to read. If you really want to understand how muscles work, this book will teach you in laymen's terms. Very interesting and easy to read.
