I recently finished The Complete Keys to Progress by John McCallum, which is a collection of articles published in Strength & Health magazine from 1965 through 1972.
This book is bodybuilding gold.
And, I don’t consider myself a bodybuilder in the strict sense; I’m not training for competitions. But I am training to get as strong as possible, so, that’s at least a version of bodybuilding.
If you want to get bigger or stronger, the principles in this book will bring you there.
How do I know? Because, like everything else I’ve ever tried that works, there’s no fluff. This training is hard.
It’s simple, but it’s not easy.
So, the next time someone offers you a fancy ‘new’ tool to workout with that’s ground-breaking, or, tells you about some new scientific, complicated program that professional athletes use, stop and think.
You probably don’t need a cryogenic chamber, thousand-dollar bicycle with Wi-Fi, or routine with 20 exercises in it.
You just need a barbell, a few free weights, and, the will to do twenty-rep squats until you’re almost crushed.
