Oliva’s honesty may scare off some people. He makes no bones about how hard it is to be successful at bodybuilding and does not promise over-night success. This book is geared towards one thing...building muscle, get muscular & ripped beyond belief. Follow this program and you will get big! Well over 400 photographs! The powers that be were always jealous of Mr. Oliva and conspired against him, Sergio without selling out, not ounce wavering from his beliefs and because he refused to sell the public anything but his own integrity, even when great personal cost was at stake, Sergio Oliva is an interesting person with lots of adventures to share with his readers. Sergio Oliva, the man named as the greatest champion in the History of bodybuilding, revel insights and never before told stories about champions and his training secrets. I recommend it highly, a must have book.

This book presents the information in a very easy to read manner, in which Sergio relates everything back to his own in the trenches experience. Amazing myth-busting warrior workouts from a real world expert. Read it, and put the information to use right away. It contains tips, tricks and principles that are applicable to anyone, not just bodybuilders. Sergio has blown away all conventional wisdom around strength and conditioning to get into top shape. The amount of information and exercises photos make this book more than worth the price. Extremely good and complete book. I can't wait to incorporate these exercises into my regimen.

Outstanding Book! Reading about Sergio, his lifestyle and attitude, is very inspiring. The man was truly ahead of his time. I definitely recommend anyone interested in keeping in shape to read this book. This is to me the best bodybuilding book ever. Written by what many consider to be the most genetic, proportional and symmetrical man in the sport. His biographer do an excellent job.

This book is amazing. and is for anyone, no matter how much time you have being lifting weights. Chapters with information and tips for novice, intermediate and advance bodybuilders. Very comprehensive and straight to the point. Reference on exercises, training, programs, and nutrition for anyone looking to gain muscular mass without injuring himself.

This book is a great source of bodybuilding techniques and nutrition, packed with a lot of information. His style of writing is very down to earth and easy to understand. This is definitely one of the best books concerning fitness that I¿ve read in a while. Once you pick it up, it's extremely hard to put down .Training Programs, Injury prevention, diets, techniques. The exercises listed in this book can also be performed with machines and other free weight exercises. He gives instructions on how to begin and how to advance, with lots of pictures and detailed instructions on how to do each exercise. Really an excellent book. Excellent.

I currently have somewhere between 80 to 100 books on the subject of exercise and weight training, and this is without a doubt the best I've read in a long time. Those of you who are new to bodybuilding and strength training will learn the scientific principles behind the method, beginner, intermediate and advanced routines, advanced high intensity training techniques. If you are already familiar with weight training will enjoy the many interesting stories Oliva shares about his life and battles with Arnold Schwarzenegger and others stories from the early days of the bodybuilding scene during the 60's and 70's. The New book should be in the library of every serious bodybuilder

I am not a bodybuilder: I am a martial artist. I find this book to be invaluable. This book is an authoritative guide to fitness in general. The exercise and nutrition programs in this book are appropriate for other types of athletes. This cool book includes specific exercises to tone each muscles. Serious athlete can use those exercises to build their own training program, appropriate to their sport of choice. The information on avoiding and treating injuries is also amazing and can be applied to pursuits other sports than bodybuilding. If you are serious about physical fitness, this is a must book to own.

What an inspirational book! This should be handed down from father to son. Well over 400 photographs in here, there are some great stories in there, and his autobiography. He talks not just about how he got into muscle building , but also his family, I literally ¿devoured¿ it. I urge you to buy this book. He truly is a great success story¿.
