Overview

Men's Health Huge in a Hurry will add inches to your muscles and increase your strength, with noticeable results quickly, no matter how long you've been lifting. Author Chad Waterbury offers the most current neuromuscular science to debunk the fitness myths and conventional wisdom that may be wreaking havoc on your workouts and inhibiting your gains.

Forget lifting moderate weights slowly for lots and lots of sets and reps. The best way to get huge in a hurry is to use heavy weights and lift them quickly for fewer repetitions. Waterbury's groundbreaking programs will enable you to:

  • Add mass and size. Gain as much as 16 pounds of muscle in 16 weeks—and add 1 full inch of upper arm circumference in half that time!
  • Get stronger...fast! Even seasoned lifters can realize a 5 percent increase in strength in the first few weeks. And in 12 weeks, you can boost your overall strength by up to 38 percent.
  • Build power and stamina. Increase your one-rep max in your core lifts by as much as 30 percent.
  • Shed fat fast. Burn off up to 10 pounds of body fat, losing up to 2 pounds of fat per week.

With Men's Health Huge in a Hurry, you'll not only get bigger faster, you'll do it with less time wasted in the gym and with less post workout pain and a much lower injury risk.

WOW, what an amazing book Chad Waterbury has put together! As an avid health nut, and someone who has weight trained 5-6 days a week for years in the past, I really appreciate and recommend this book. As into weight training as I am, I have never desired a big, hulking build. I have always preferred a lean, defined and agile physique. This book, in my opinion, has laid a great foundation for anybody, whether beginner or an advanced trainer, to pack on lean muscle mass. Training 5-6 days a week in the past left me completely drained and burnt out. I turned to books by trainers such as Mike Boyle, Robert Dos Remedios, and Mark Verstegen. They all prefer functional training rather than strictly isolation movements. Having learned so much from them and always incorporating their ideas and methods into my workout regimens, I was a little skeptical of Waterbury's book - I thought it might be just another book that mimicked these styles. While Waterbury does completely prefer functional training, the way he wants you to lift is against the grain for what most people have done their whole lives. Coupled with a "different" way of lifting, and great workout plans all laid out by the author himself, Waterbury makes his program as easy as you could imagine to follow - but completely worth its weight in gold when followed correctly and intensely. I've been lifting for years, and always look to learn something new, or find a better way to improve myself physically. I've found it. It's Huge in a Hurry. I've been doing the "Get Big" program for only 5 weeks now, and I kid you not, I've noticed improvement already. Thats alot to say, as typically people who have been training for so long take much, much longer to gain improvement. In 5 weeks, I've already improved on my core lifts, such as deadlifts, squats, and bench press. I'm only weight training 3 days a week as suggested by Waterbury, and this allows my body much more rest time. My body recovers much better with the time off, something it was never able to fully do working out 5-6 days a week. I'm more explosive in my workouts. With muscles well rested and more energy, my workouts are more intense. The energy I exert ("lifting as hard and fast as you can" as Waterbury would say) while still maintaining form is awesome, the power I have has been something I lacked in the past due to burnout. I leave the gym knowing I just put in a serious workout, and it feels great. I recommend this book for all levels, it will only help you get better from Day 1. Aside from the great advice, Waterbury presents it in a very easy to read way, even mixing in some humor. It does get a little in depth at some points, but not so in depth that your confused - it's a great mix, and the man's knowledge is awesome. I am more than happy I picked up this book!

I have been in the Marine Corps for 17 years and am currently serving as a Marine Corps Martial Arts Instructor and Personal Trainer. This book is one of the best and most efficient fitness programs that I have ever done. The book is written in plain easy to understand English and is organized in a manner that makes the information easily accessible.

Take it from someone who has some credentials: I have critically reviewed the information in this book and crossed referenced it with many resources. I have a strong exercise physiology background including studying under the founder and former president of the American Society of Exercise Physiologists; I am a personal trainer certified through multiple accredited associations including the American college of Sports Medicine; I am a student physical therapist; cross referenced this with an person who is not only an athletic trainer, but a physical therapist and has a doctorate related to exercise physiology; and cross referenced it with a Ph.D in Neuroanatomy. The book seems like it would work; the principles are in some ways correct. However, this book is a fast track to injury. I gave it a fair shot despite some fair warning. I sustained a SLAP lesion of the shoulder, bicep tendonitis, non specific back pain, and radiculopathy (meaning nerve pain). At best, you can take some of the ideas from this book and apply them. However, this is not a book to live by or follow. DO NOT FOLLOW THIS PLAN "TO A T."
