What's the The Best Kind of Strength Training?

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

What's the best kind of strength training?

Over the past week, I've received emails
from Dinos around the world who were
having great workouts and getting terrific
results from their training.

And here's the interesting thing.

They were all doing different types of

One was doing heavy partials in the power

Another was training for a powerlifting

One was doing strongman style training,
and looking to enter a strongmen contest
in the near future.

One was doing Olympic weightlifting.

Another was doing an all-bodyweight

Still another was doing a combination of
barbell, dumbbell and bodyweight work.

One was specializing in kettlebell training --
another was doing barbells, kettlebells and
cables -- and yet another was combining
weight training and yoga.

One Dino was doing muscle control (using
the old Maxick course), dumbbells and
cables -- along with some bodyweight

And one of the older Dinos was hitting it
in his garage gym, using an old York barbell,
and following the same York training courses
he used more than 50 years ago when he first
began to train.

Some were doing 5 x 5, some were doing
singles, and some did pyramids.

Some trained three times per week, some
two, and one trained once every three to five

Some did strength work and cardio, others
did strength work only, and some did both
but on different days.

Who was getting the best workout?

I don't know. They were all having great fun,
and they all reported great results.

Whose training program was best?

Once again, I don't know. It seems as if all
of the programs were pretty good.

I think that's the answer to the question.

What's the best kind of strength training?

There isn't one.

There are many.

Pick what you enjoy the most -- and work
on it hard -- and stick to your program like
gorilla glue -- and you'll do just fine!

As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day.  If you train today, make it a
good one.

Yours in strength,

P.S. Old-school dumbbell training and old-
school bodyweight training can give you a
terrific workout all by themselves -- or you
can combine them with other training tools
for a super-effective head to toe workout:

Dinosaur Dumbbell Training (book)


The Lost Art of Dumbbell Training (DVD)


Dinosaur Bodyweight Training
