Default Arnold Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding

I just bought this. *yes, shame on me!* and I am just reading every single page. Have you read it? What did you think of it?

This ment for one of the...umm 6 girls or can i reply as well? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Personally i enjoy the book a lot, not only for the pics for for the vast amount of exercises it has pictures for. Since buying this book i know i have corrected my form on at least 4 exercises. I always thought your arms should be 90deg from your body during Skull Crushers, foolish me no wonder i never got a good peak contraction. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane

"Sacrifice: To give up, destroy, renounce, and surrender your ego, excuses, bad habits, fears, and your couch - in the belief of an ideal or pursuit of a worthy goal."

"All thing are possible to him who believes." -Mark 9:23

I payed 60 dollars for this book. I lost 6 times on ebay and at the last time i said : i will pay even if it is 1000 dollars.
This man is a legend , not only on the physicall level but on the mental also.
Just read chapter 7 in this encylopedia to know the real value of such a man...
It is a perfect book but on a nutritional level , it is a basic entrance to bodybuilding nutrition.

europe don't stop exporting talents.....

I love the perspective he's got on females doing bodybuilding and how he didn't include a section for females because there shouldn't be any distinction on training although there might be on goals.

And he would support his daughters if they decide to do bbing.

I want a daddy like that!!!*pout*

I have yet to get to the nutrition part but like the guides on posing, preparing for contest, etc.

LOL Gabe.
I am reading more now. I am shocked at how Arnold's definition of bodybuilder fits me..like waking up early to the gym and waiting for the gym to open! I remember waking up at 4:00 am, take a public bus at 5:00 am and then hitting the weights at 5:30 pm every single day, then go and study full time, work part time and come back to the gym for cardio.

Of course, this was in college.
Now, I am getting back into that routine again.
