"I Don't Listen to Old Guys!" He Said

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Over the past couple of days, I've been
buried in emails from readers in response
to the emails I've sent out this week.

The consensus is this -- it's a crying shame
that more guys and gals don't start training
the right way from the very beginning -- as
opposed to wasting so much time and effort
on the high volume muscle blasting programs.

And everyone wonders why that happens.

Especially if you have the proof right in front
of you.

A number of older Dinos mentioned that their
nephews or grand-nephews -- or their sons or
grandsons -- are teenagers or twenty-somethings
who are just getting into weight training.

They have an older family member -- father,
grandfather or uncle -- who is a very strong
and very accomplished lifter. He clearly knows
what he's doing -- and how to put together a
workout that brings FAST and BIG results.

But the newbies don't ask for his advice. They
just jump right into the muscle-blasting nonsense
in their favorite muscle comic or muscle comic

Uncle Joe trains twice a week in his garage,
and does the basics -- and lifts a ton.

The kids run off the the nearest Chrome and Fern
Gym and do a 6-day per week triple split routine
featured in their "must read" muscle comic.

Forget about Uncle Joe.

What does he know?

He's OLD, man!

The same thing happens in the gym.

The newbies do what they read in the muscle
comics. Never mind that there's a big, thick,
strong as a horse older guy doing 5 x 5 in the
squat over in the corner -- or pressing double
what the young guys are deadlifting -- or doing
heavy deads from the knees with more than the
combined weight of the young guys, their curl
bars and their pec decs.

They. Just. Don't. Ask. Him.

It's such a shame. The evidence is right there --
right in front of them.

Here's someone who knows what he's doing.
Just look at him. Look at the weight on the

And he's doing something WAY DIFFERENT than
what they tell you to do in this month's issue of
Ultra-Massive Super Muscle or Inter-Galactic
Power Pecs.

Why not ask HIM for a training program?

Or for some advice?

What do you have to lose?

(End of rant.)

Okay, deep breath.

I guess all we can do is keep fighting the fight.
If you're a younger trainee, give the old-school,
basic, hard and heavy approach a try. You'll be
shocked by your results.

If you're an older trainee who knows the score,
keep on squatting, pushing and pulling. They'll
ask for help someday.

And when they do -- be ready to drop some
knowledge bombs on them!

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

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik

P.S.Speaking of knowledge bombs, Strength,
Muscle and Power has plenty of them:

P.S. 3. Thought for the Day: "A prophet is without
honor in his own country, and so is anyone who trains
old-school style -- even if he's the strongest guy in
the room. And that needs to change." -- Brooks
