This book has the answer. In fact, it probably answers every question you've ever asked about how your muscles work: What makes them grow? What makes them show? Why didn't that champion bodybuilder's routine work for you?

But The Book of Muscle does more than just explain how your muscles work. It also gives you comprehensive muscle-building programs from a world-class trainer.

Ian King has spent 2 decades as strength coach to world-champion and Olympic athletes.

Now, for the first time, he brings his extraordinary knowledge and unique muscle-building systems to a book meant for regular guys who like to work out and want to see better results than they've gotten from conventional programs.

Here's what you get from The Book of Muscle that you can't get from any other book:

Ian King's revolutionary training-age system to help you determine which program is right for you

Complete abdominal training that ensures you'll not only get that coveted six-pack but also develop the muscles that prevent injuries and produce better performance on the field--any field

Vital advice on warming up, stretching, and recovering between workouts

The latest and best information on how you need to eat to make your muscles grow

If you've never before bought a workout book, this should be your first. And if you've tried all the others, this is the one that finally delivers everything you have ever wanted to know but couldn't find in one place.

  • Great/Very informative Muscle Book for any level!
    Verified Purchase

    I have to say that this book is excellent. I am a very picky person when it comes to buying stuff. So it took me 3 days to decide which muscle book was the best to buy since i wasn't planning on buying other books. So i jumped from one site to another and finally found this one. This book covers everything you want to know about muscle, it explains the details of every muscle (very informative) at the beginning, what kind of foods you need to take (intake), and at the end it explains the workouts. The other thing i like about this book is the graphic, it has lots of graphics which really support the reader to understand (for example when it comes to workout part). Also, the way the author wrote this book was kind of loose and friendly and deep at the same time. So, i wasn't tired at all when reading the book. So, yes! Definitely worth the money for you who just start and wonder what muscle you need to build and for moderate/advanced level as well. Good luck guys!

  • complete guide for muscle and workout program
    Verified Purchase

    This book covers from the mechanism of muscle gain, functions of each muscles, to the complete workout program. Workout program is really intense (it takes more than 1 hour if you follow the instruction), but it's worth doing. I reallly noticed my body changed in less than a month. The cons are, it takes 6 months to finish each programs (biginner, intermidiate, advanced), but I am going to follow the program. If you are really motivated but cannot afford a personal trainer, this book really works. If you want to build particular muscles, like abs or pecs, maybe this whole body workout program doesn't work for you.
