Hail to the Dinosaurs!
I've been getting a ton of questions
about Dinosaur Dumbbell Training, so
let me answer some of them in this
email. It will save me trying to answer
50 or so individual emails with the same
or similar questions:
Q. Is Dinosaur Dumbbell Training an actual
book or is it a short course?
A. It's a book. And a big one. It's 8 1/2

Q. Is Dinosaur Dumbbell Training in stock
and ready to ship?
A. It sure is. We're firing them out as
soon as we get an order.

or snatches. Are there other exercises
in the book that I can do?
A. Absolutely. I include many different
pressing exercises, as well as different
types of dumbbell deadlifts, squats, shrugs
Q. Do you include dumbbell curls?
A. No, because I assume everyone knows how
to do them. I tried to stick to exercises
you might not have seen before, or might
not know how to perform.
Q. Can I get a complete total body workout
with dumbbells alone?
A. Yes, and I teach you how to do it in the
book. I also teach you how to combine
dumbbells with barbells, kettlebells,
bodyweight training and heavy awkward

300 exercise photos. We shot over 1,000
photos and I picked out the best ones.

quite literally something for everyone.
Q. Can you tell me what kind of dumbbells

of the book. i also give you different
exercise choices depending in part on
the kind of dumbbells available to you.
Q. I like your historical approach to
strength training and muscle building.
Do you include any of that in Dinosaur
A. Yes, it's in one of the very first
chapters -- and there are some killer
photos of old-time strongmen that I got
from Bill Hinbern.
Q. Do you include leg exercises with
A. Dinosaur Dumbbell Training has an
entire chapter of leg exercises you can
perform with dumbbells.

A. They're abbreviated. That's the best
way to train, no matter what kind of
equipment you use.
Q. What are people saying about Dinosaur
A. Readers LOVE it. The response has been
overwhelming, and 100 percent positive.

ordered the CD, and they love it! It's

A. John Grimek thought so, and that's good
enough for me!
Q. Are dumbbells good for older trainees?
A. Absolutely! Dumbbells allow you to turn
your hands and position your arms and elbows
to find the best, easiest and most pain free
range of motion possible. They're much more
forgiving than a barbell.

week -- so I hope it helped to put them
together into one combination response.
As always, thanks for reading, and have a
great day. If you train today, make it a
