Frank Zane – The Workouts Personal Training Diaries | Book Review

July 28, 2015 at 4:14 pm

I wrote another review about Frank Zane’s book “Get Great Abs”, which I am personally adding the routines provided into my training. This book, The Workouts Personal Training Diaries, is about the workouts as done by Frank Zane. Not only does he he share in depth knowledge, advice, tips, and much more, he also shares personal details about his life, his ambition, his goals, and his successes. I am a very big fan of Frank Zane because he was one of the best of all time in a sport that I completely love, bodybuilding. He had an amazing physique, an amazing work ethic, and had the same ambitions and drive that I have. As I read his diary, it’s almost like looking into my life. It’s amazing how quickly your perception and your view of someone changes when you read something personal about them. I had no idea about the […]

Better than Steroids – Dr. Warren Willey | Book Review by TrainerCarlos

July 27, 2015 at 12:43 pm

Are steroids needed to become a professional bodybuilder? This is an on-going debate, but there comes a level where, depending on your weight class, steroids will play a crucial role into whether you’ll be competive or not. Back in the golden era of Bodybuilding massive size was not the most important thing in competition. Things like symmetry, hardness, dryness, vascularity, all played an important role. Though many of things still play a role today, having a massive frame is not practically a must. You can’t have the body of a Frank Zane and expect to be competitive. You can in physique, but definitely not in bodybuilding. And even that now is becoming dependent of prescription type supplements. Bodybuilding has been around for quite a few decades now. As time goes by, different lifting strategies, different methods of training, different ways of eating and even synthetic ways of getting results are […]

Frank Zane’s Get Great Abs Book Review by TrainerCarlos

July 26, 2015 at 6:54 pm

Before I tell you why you HAVE to get this book, let me tell you who Frank Zane is. Frank Zane is one of the greatest bodybuilders from the Golden Era of Bodybuilding that has ever lived. He is up there with the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lee Haney, Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler… he is widely considered to have the best physique of all times. He is probably the lightest bodybuilder to ever win the Mr. Olympia tittle, and he won it 3 times. He had chiseled abs, wide shoulders, he was shredded, and had everything a bodybuilder should have, in a great and magnificent way. If you had to learn how to develop a great set of abs, who else do you want to learn from than from the man that had the best midsection of all time? Let me tell you something, I’ve been training for quite a […]
