Happy Thanksgiving to the Dinosaurs!

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

We'll talk training in just a
minute, but first I have a
very important message
for all Dinosaurs, all around
the world:


I hope that everyone has a terrific
holiday -- and that everyone has
tons and tons of turkey with all the
trimmings -- and that everyone
who trains today makes it a good

That goes double for all of our
Dinos in the military -- and triple
for military Dinos who are stationed

And remember -- if you hit your
squats, pulls and pushes extra hard,
you get an extra slice of pumpkin
pie today!

Talking About Training . . .

On the training front, here's more
feedback in response to the question:

If you were starting all over again in
the Iron Game, knowing what you
know now, what would you do

Like this Dino, I would also do pretty
much what I am doing now (at age

I train twice a week on a divided
workout schedule.

If I were training a younger person
from scratch I would have him do:

1 or 2 pressing movements

1 or 2 pulling movements

A squat variation and a deadlift
variation -- or maybe just one or
the other.

I would have them stick with that
handful of exercises for several years,
always focusing on building strength.

After a few years of this, our young
novice would be very near his full
potential for strength and muscle

The problem is trying to get a young
novice to listen to advice like this --
but it's exactly what they need, and
exactly what I need -- and what most
of us need.

Thanks for sharing that, Andy -- it's
very good advice -- and you're right,
it's exactly what most of us need to
do to build strength and size.

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik

pull hard, press strong and enjoy that turkey
dinner -- you earned it!" -- Brooks Kubik
