True Bodybuilding by Doug Brignole, Moe El Arbi and Jerry Brainum delivers an indepth account on how to train muscles safely and efficiently using biomechanics and physics, personally at age 60 its been enlightening for me, I didn't believe I could learn anything new, i was wrong! As a bonus they've added video instruction on the best 20 exercises for the whole body, the set of videos are known as the Brig 20.

Furthermore they expand on the subject of nutrition and supplementation a subject often deflected by many of todays coaches.

Finally as an experienced competitive bodybuilding champion I found the competition diet and posing seminars remarkably refreshing with some invaluable information.


I would say that which ever level you're at, if you're just starting off in bodybuilding or if you're a veteran, you will definitely take from this valuable and tangible information from the very best in there field
