Guys I hate reading but when I come across a great book I try to tell as many people as I can about it. Intriguing. Engaging. Compelling. All of those words describe Million Dollar Muscle by Adrian James Tan, Ph.D., and Doug Brignole. No, this isn’t another workout manual; it’s a “historical and sociological prespective of the fitness industry,”.

There’s history in these pages too. The authors discuss old-time strongmen, the evolution of bodybuilding and the Muscle Beach era. That all leads to chapters on “ornamental masculinity” (there’s an interesting title), the benefits of exercise and a social psychology of the iron game.

The book is not all academia oriented though. Brignole provides plenty of personal insights, including why he became a bodybuilder, his foray into the gym business, fitness controversies—such as weightlifting for women and kids, steroids, cellulite—and even tips on burning fat.

This is a book you can read from cover to cover or skip around to various chapters of interest, as most are stand-alone features.

It’s a great book very interesting and a true contribution to our industry.


Robert Kennedy (1938-2012)

                      Robert Kennedy founder of RKP/Robert Kennedy Publishing, the magazine brands MuscleMag International, Reps!, Oxygen, American Curves and Clean Eating as well as hundreds of books (he personally wrote over 55 of them and was a New York Times Best-seller forHardcore Bodybuilding, Reps!, RockHard!, Beef It!, and Pumping Up!) lost his heroic battle with cancer April 12 at his home in the Caledon Hills, north of Toronto, Ontario.

                      Bob’s longtime friend Arnold Schwarzenegger paid him a surprise visit on Easter Sunday. Bob and Arnold spent hours reminiscing about old times and the two legends even flexed! Bob’s wife, Tosca Reno shared, “It was nice to see the sparkle in Bob’s blue eyes again.” Arnold stated, “Bob was a great friend and a true fitness icon. He spread the gospel of health around the globe, and his impact can’t be measured. I will miss Bob, but there is no question that his legacy of a fitter and healthier world will live on.”

                      On 1972 Bob went into business for himself, selling courses of instruction by mail on nutrition, bodybuilding and fitness. In 1974 he started his first magazine, MuscleMag International, with an initial print run of 110,000 copies. Thirty-five years later, the magazine continues publishing. Bob was an avid and accomplished photographer who discovered many fitness models/WWE stars/bodybuilding personalities/health and fitness experts and celebrities, including, among others, Tosca Reno, Torrie Wilson, Trish Stratus, Vicky Pratt, Cory Everson, Roland Kickinger and Ronnie Coleman.

                     Robert “Bob” Kennedy’s life’s work, dedication and impact on bodybuilding, health and fitness have been a source of inspiration to tens of millions of people and his wife Tosca Reno shall continue his legacy.

Who do you think Is the Better

5 Tips for Beginners

1. Appropriate diet:

 You cannot get a perfect body without an appropriate diet. This is because bodybuilding requires enough calories and nutrients, to give the necessary energy for rebuilding your muscles after your intense workouts.

You should get awesome meals that are rich in protein and carbohydrates. STAY AWAY FROM JUNK FOOD no mater what junk food you eat it will have an unnecessary amount of calories and fat as well.

Junk Food!

2. Routine: 

Create a workout plan that includes the best possible exercises. Muscle growth can be sped up if you use a variety of Muscle building tricks like burn out and different set and rep combinations, so make sure you do some research.

 It is important to get a routine which also allows your body to get enough rest in order to prepare for another tiring workout session. Furthermore, make sure that your routine includes enough water, as a drop in hydration will result in a drop in performance.

3. Know your limits:

 Something else that you should pay attention to is knowing your own limits. You should train yourself based on the capacity of your body. You shouldn’t copy others who are able to train at a much higher intensity than you as this is likely to cause injury.

4. Warm-up session:

 A warm-up session before bodybuilding is a crucial tip. Doing a training session without warming up first may lead to a series of issues, like strained or pulled muscles and even damaged ligaments and tendons. A short warm-up session of five to ten minutes can help you avoid any unnecessary painful experiences, these can keep you out for days sometimes weeks trust me I know.

Warm up sessions should include stretching, and a short run or a few sets of pushups to get the blood flowing.  

5. Focus:

Some beginners to bodybuilding may underestimate the importance of focusing while lifting weights. If you let your mind wander the chances are you’re probably not pushing yourself to the max. If you’re after significant muscle gains then you should be lifting the weights to the best of your ability and not just doing half hearted attempts.

Listening to some fast and energetic music while lifting weights can help a lot of people improve their focus, so give it a try if you don’t do so already.
