I am not a bodybuilder, nor am I destined to become one in this lifetime. However, when I started reading “Brink’s Bodybuilding Revealed“, I could not put it down.

What is BodyBuilding Revealed?

As a bonus, included are three training reports by Evan R. Peck, M.D.:

  • Overcoming Training Plateaus

In another very useful bonus, Brink gives you more than ten pages of “Brink’s Hybrid Training System” that “attempts to utilize all of the energy pathways by varying rep ranges, volume, tempo, etc. without over emphasizing any one pathway”.

This is an excellent ebook with access to many bonuses on Brink’s website. Anyone truly interested in bodybuilding should own a copy. Even couch potatoes like me found it full of useful information I could apply to my life.

  1. I am not a bodybuilder. I train with heavy s for low reps using exclusively compound lifts and I use full body workouts. This is contrary to standard bodybuilding methodology. Nevertheless I have read bodybuilding texts in the past and the better ones have added to my knowledge of physiology and diet. When it comes to exercise and nutrition, no one has all the answers. We are all still learning and we can all learn from each other what ever path we chose to follow.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. I am curious about the exercise database. I am sure there are exercises there for beginners to use to help get going. I like how you broke down each chapter, this helps someone decide if the ebook satisfies the persons needs and wants before purchasing. Thanks!
