Required Reading for Serious Trainees

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Long-time Dino Peter Jensen sent in a
detailed review of the January issue of
the Dinosaur Files, and I thought I'd
share it with you. It kind of made my
day - and I'm sure you can see why!

Hi Brooks,

What an excellent issue of the Dino Files.
Very well done, and a good job!

Each and every article is required reading
for serious trainees.

All the articles were great, but if I had to
pick my absolute favorite, it would be Allan
Roth's article, "Wrestling With Father Time."

That article could have been written by
yours truly, and when I read it, I almost
felt that Allan and I have lived similar

I too have a background in martial arts,
and have always lived my life with the
pedal to the floor in all my endeavors.
Never a fan of cycling in my training, I
always drove my body hard and heavy.
Limits were there only to be broken.

Thank you for the excellent work that
you do - I will be sure to send you an
article in the near future, and hope to
see it in a future issue of the Dino Files.

Take care and stay strong.

Peter Jensen

Peter - thanks for your kind words. I,
too, enjoyed Allan's article a great deal.

One of the special things about the Dino
Files is that it includes so much material
from real people - folks like us - who live
and train in the real world, and who deal
with real world problems - but who find
ways to adapt, improvise, and carry on.

I'm sure it would be fun to live the Fantasy
Life on the silver sands of Muscle Beach -
but those of us who live in the real world
need real world training advice.

That includes straight talk about dings
and dents - and about effective training
adaptations for older Dinos - which is
something we focus on in The Dino

That's why - as you said - the Dino Files
is required reading for serious trainees.

You just won't find this information
anywhere else. And as they say,
knowledge is power.

Yours in strength,

Brooks Kubik
