Massive Muscular Arms FAQ
Is your training system better than all the others?
I love this question and can best explain with another:
Why limit yourself to the ideas of one person, when you can apply the most effective insights from dozens of experts?
For this reason, I select the best of the best, from the greatest industry leaders of the past three decades.
I weed through the garbage and select only the best training techniques and systems from the last 30 years, add my own flavor and blend until big. This integrated non-dogmatic approach gives you flexibility to try new things and custom tailor every component of your workout for the biggest gains.
So although I don’t call it a system, I provide you with more ‘tools’ for your training toolbox, and show you how to use each of them.
I’m new to training, can I use this book?
I’m an experienced lifter, can I still use this book?
‘This book is like a Disney movie; kids [training novices] will love it for one reason, and adults [training experienced] will enjoy it on a deeper level. Everyone takes away something different, but we all walk away happy'.
Is the entire book just about arm training?
Not at all. Although I was able to share my specialization by taking you on a deep dive into the applied science of arm training [not unlike ‘The Glute Guy’ with his respective area], there are even bigger upgrades applicable to overall muscle growth and recovery.
Why do you mention so many experts in the book – is it a name-dropping thing?
‘Standing on the shoulders of giants’ may be an overused quote, but I’ve had the privilege to learn from dozens of individuals over the past 20 years, and wanted to acknowledge as many as I could (although it feels like only a handful).
This is especially important in the fitness industry, which is exceptionally self-centered. We can do better, and I want to lead by example.
I don’t have access to a lot of equipment, but can I still use this book?
Yes! In fact, Chapter 10 is entirely devoted to limited equipment training.
Do you cover Nutrition in the book?
At nearly 300 pages, there wasn't much room to pack in more quality info. So although I touch on nutrition, the editors and I decided to save the nutrition insights for my most recent textbook contribution: NSCA's Nutrition Guide (Available Here!)
Did you really work at NASA?
Yes, this was a career highlight! I conduced muscle wasting research at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The experience was incredible, but more importantly, in Chapter 8 I show you how to use the result of that research to improve your own recovery.
