2. The May Dino Files
. . . is running late - because I've been
buried in a very big, unexpected project.
But it should be ready soon - and I'll send
an email when it's ready to go.
This issue has a terrific Challenge Workout
that you're going to want to try - as well as
some great "from the trenches" articles by
older Dinos - and a deep dive into one of
the most popular training programs of the
1940's and 50's - with some interesting
and effective ways to incorporate it into
your current program.
In other words, fun stuff, good stuff and
Dino stuff. Be looking for it soon - and be
ready for a very good issue of non-stop
3. My New Course
I've got a brand new training course out,
and it's a good one.
It covers old-school arm training - not the
pump stuff, but the kind of training that
builds plenty of strength and power.
It's based on Doug Hepburn's workouts -
and Hepburn, you may remember, was
the only man in history to set World
1, The bench press
2. The military press
3. The barbell curl
Which kind of proves that he had pretty
strong arms - and that's why I based
this course on his unique and effective
arm training techniques.
It comes in a downloadable and printable
PDF - and you get a special bonus with it -
four workout charts. You can print them
out, make copies and use them to keep
track of your workouts.

keep you young, strong, well-coordinated,
and athletic as you add candles to your
birthday cake, try dumbbells.

old-timers used to use - something that

Of course, you have to use them the right
way - which is why I wrote a complete
book on old-school dumbbell training.
It's called Dinosaur Dumbbell Training -
