9780809230068: The Gold's Gym Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding (Gold's Gym series)

In the world of bodybuilding, there are nearly as many opinions on how to get the edge as there are bodybuilders. How do you know which advice to follow? Look to the experts--the world's most recognized and respected bodybuilding organization, Gold's Gym. Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran, you'll find what you need in this all-in-one bodybuilding bible. From diet and nutrition to sets and reps, every concern is addressed and every question answered by the pros who started the bodybuilding movement and who have been leaders in the arena for more than thirty years. The Gold's Gym Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding offers everything a bodybuilder needs to overcome obstacles and exceed training goals, including:

  • An introduction to the art and science of bodybuilding
  • Essential information on diet, nutrition, and supplements for bodybuilding
  • Analysis of the best types of training to reach your goals
  • Exercises to develop every muscle in your body
  • Tips on aerobic fitness and stretching
  • Strategies for gaining lean muscle mass
  • Winning advice for competitors
  • And much more!
If you're serious about success in the intensely competitive world of bodybuilding, take your lead from the pros at Gold's Gym and put success on your team. Ed Connors and Tim Kimber are co-owners of Gold's Gym Enterprises, Inc., along with Peter Grymkowski, former Mr. America (heavyweight) and Mr. World. Mike McCormick is a freelance writer and bodybuilding analyst.

Review:

Bodybuilders, wisdom has it, go through three stages: First, people make fun of them because they're so skinny; then, after they've been training for a while and starting to see results, people admire them because they look so strong and healthy; then, after they've become successful bodybuilders, people make fun of them again because they have so much muscle. The Gold's Gym Encyclopedia is about getting to that third stage and staying there--and not caring what anyone who's not a bodybuilder thinks of the way you look. For the hardest of the hard-core, this book shows the way to hugeness with the latest information about training, nutrition, nutritional supplementation, and, of course, actually competing in the sport of bodybuilding. There's an interesting discussion of high-volume (lots of sets and repetitions of each exercise) vs. high-intensity (one killer set per exercise) training methods and other systems, plus a token caution against using physique-enhancing drugs (followed by a list of drugs that's far longer than the caution preceding it). If Gold's Gym is the mecca of bodybuilding, then this "encyclopedia" is surely the sport's holy text.
