Descrizione prodotto


Imagine . . . build much more muscle and strength, from much less time in the gym.

What if you were one of the most training-savvy people in your town or city? Imagine how good that would make you feel.

And imagine the power you’d have to improve your physique, and to help others improve theirs.

But don’t just imagine this. Make it a reality!

Blue-ribbon author, Stuart McRobert, has long been revealing how to achieve bodybuilding and strength success. He has done this through his many books, about 700 articles in newsstand muscle magazines, and 15 years as the editor of HARDGAINER, a muscle and strength magazine. Now he’s back with his latest natural bodybuilding book, INSIDE THE MIND OF AN IRON ICON. It features the first ever comprehensive interview of Stuart, by Chuck Miller, a student of McRobert’s who has won national powerlifting championships.

The lessons in this fitness book aren’t based on just Stuart’s journey. They are a fusion of the acquired wisdom of generations of drug-free bodybuilders and strength trainees.

Here’s just a sample of what you’ll learn from this book’s 200 pages, to build a bigger leaner body:

1. Superlative strength training programs, and how to customize them to suit you.

2. The definitive scoop on the exercises you should be doing for maximum strength and development.

3. The single best way to instantly improve your exercise technique (but it’s not slowing your rep speed).

4. The full revelation about the maxim “to build bigger muscles, build strength.”

5. The most important weight training advice you haven’t heard.

6. Stuart’s own training over the decades, and the many lessons for you to learn.

7. How to manage factors outside the gym, including nutrition, to maximize progress in the gym.

8. How even “hard gainers” can become really good gainers.

9. Chuck’s own 30+ years of training and competition, and the lessons to learn.

10. Nuanced differences in the most effective training strategies for beginner, intermediate, and advanced trainees.

11. The importance of training for a lifetime, and how to do it.

12. A foreword from renowned strength-training author, Marty Gallagher.

13. Historical perspective from Chuck on how not only hard gainers, but also world champions from the early days of powerlifting to the present, have used brief, demanding workouts to fuel progress in a timeless approach to effective strength training.

Whether you’re starting strength training, or are a training veteran, this book is for you.

If you’re new to Stuart’s books, you’re in for a major wake-up call that can tremendously accelerate your progress in building muscle and strength.

For more than 30 years, Stuart McRobert has revealed how to achieve bodybuilding and strength training success. He has done this through his books, about 700 articles in newsstand muscle magazines, and 15 years as the editor of HARDGAINER, a bodybuilding magazine.

This blue-ribbon author is one of the most respected writers in the genre of weight training. Although Stuart has been extensively published in the mainstream bodybuilding world, his guidance is most definitely not mainstream. Conventional training methods don't work well for most trainees.

McRobert is not an armchair coach. Without drugs, and with just normal genetics, he built 45 pounds of muscle, transformed his physique, and deadlifted 400 pounds for a set of 20 reps. He still practices what he teaches, and as he approaches age 60 he continues to be strong, lean, flexible, and fit.

Stuart has a degree in education, over 40 years experience of training himself, over 30 years experience of guiding others, and is the author of five books on physique transformation: BRAWN, BEYOND BRAWN, THE INSIDER’S TELL-ALL HANDBOOK ON WEIGHT-TRAINING TECHNIQUE, BUILD MUSCLE LOSE FAT LOOK GREAT, and the first book of the NEW BRAWN SERIES: HOW TO BUILD UP TO 50 POUNDS OF MUSCLE THE NATURAL WAY.

Chuck Miller has trained with weights for over 30 years, and competed in strength sports for over 20 years, always drug-free. He has won multiple regional and national powerlifting championships, and totaled Raw Elite three times—twice in the 198-pound class and, most recently, at 220.

Chuck made these achievements despite two major challenges: He is a type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic, and he overcame a tibial plateau fracture in his left knee at age 38 that required a plate and five screws to correct.

Chuck has trained elite athletes, military special forces personnel, and average Joes and Jills. He has also written dozens of articles for respected strength-training journals.

In addition to his ample in-the-trenches experience, Chuck is committed to lifelong learning. He has maintained the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) credential since passing the rigorous exam in 1997. He attended West Virginia University for his post-secondary education, obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism in 1991, a JD in 1994, and an MBA in 1995. He passed the West Virginia bar exam and is licensed to practice law, although his career is in management and his passion is strength.

I did my subscription to Hardgainer magazine, English version, in 1995, after reading Italian edition of Brawn. I think Stuart represent in (Authentic) Natural BB world what H.Ford in motor vehicle history. Before H.Ford driving a car was a very exclusive, elite job.
Brawn was the Ford "T" of Natural BB Handbooks. After reading this book, large muscles and great amount of strength stopped to be a privilege status for easygainers elite or steroid abusers (those unfortunately aren't distinct categories) and became a real deal for ALL serious and dedicated normal gifted trainees. It was happened to me too.
Every McRobert's book is a big load of new and real instructions, so "Inside the Mind of Iron Icon". It confirms some mine little intuitions, solves many doubts and gives me, as usually, a lot of new suggestions. I know that I'll read this book more and more and every time I'll find something I didn't see before. McRobert texts always are so pregnant and useful.
Thanks Stuart, one more time.

Seguo Stuart McRobert da quasi 20 anni. Ho acquistato tutti i suoi libri e le sue riviste (Hardgainer) durante il trascorrere degli anni. Ho sempre nutrito un profondo rispetto nei confronti di Stuart e della sua filosofia d'allenamento.
Il libro in questione (Inside the mind of an iron icon) è una sorta di "summa" di altri suoi libri dove l'autore, a 57 anni d'età e con quasi 40 anni di esperienza d'allenamento, ci rende partecipe del suo incredibile viaggio all'interno del mondo del bodybuilding.

Seguo McRobert da 22 anni, e BRAWN ha cambiato per sempre in meglio il modo di allenarmi. Non fosse per lui starei ancora allenandomi con i raccapriccianti metodi weideriani da 6 giorni a settimana a split, assolutamente improduttivi se non per i pro pieni di farmaci fino al midollo. Il libro è un compendio aggiornato delle teorie stuartiane ma soprattutto apre luce sullo Stuart uomo. Da avere.

5.0 su 5 stelle The ONLY must have author for those passionate about lifting and achieving their genetic potential 31 luglio 2016

Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It is difficult to capture for those not familiar with Stuart's work, the impact he has had on thousands of dedicated yet disillusioned bodybuilders. I came across Beyond Brawn by accident on the internet in 2001 at the age of 30, and it was like reading an autobiography of my own failed expectations from lifting continuously since the age of 14.

The three grueling days of lifting-- chest and back, legs and shoulders, arms--each muscle group consisting of 6-8 exercises for 2-3 sets, one day of rest and then start the whole thing over again-each gym session was near two hours. There were some strength gains and very modest size gains but most of that came from going from 14-18 years old, and much less from literally giving my life away to the gym. I had no diet to speak of, no brick and mortar to build the house, I was in a constant state of drained/rubbery/sore muscles. For the most part the weight I could lift and the size I achieved were unchanged, especially considering the effort I put in. The only thing I really had to show was low BF% from burning so many calories. I did exactly like Tom Platz, Lee Haney, Kevin Lavrone and the other "big names" said they did in the Weider publications, so why did my years of near religious dedication not pay off?!?!? Why did I not achieve even a sliver of what they did?? Guess I need to add more exercises, add more volume, change the rep count, intensifiers, alter something, surely "the secret" is somewhere in those publications! Well, I went through this charade in one form or another through my adult life including marriage and children, always feeling deep regret for not being able to figure it out. After all, my job is as a chemical engineer, I solve complex problems using formulas and experimentation for a living, so how could I not possibly figure this one out after 17 years of relentless pursuit--am I just defective?

Beyond Brawn was the light bulb, the epiphany, the awakening, that changed EVERYTHING, and gave mylifting life back before it was too late. Thank you Stuart!! for taking what you learned along the way and having the fortitude to go against the bodybuilding publishers grain--For staying true to what you knew to be the answers for legions of genetically typical lifters who really gave their all but were doing so the wrong way. My only regret is that I didn't find your publications earlier, if only the internet was around in 1992. I'm now 46 and have different goals, but am stronger and in better shape than I was at 25, and I've done it with 6 total lifts per week for 2 sets each, and workouts that last 35 minutes max. My personally engraved "little gem" 0.5lb and 1.0lb weights have served me well. I lift in the comfort of my garage with a modest setup, gone are the days of "gearing up" for the gym. The lifting journal I created in excel is now many many pages, but I'm able to go through it as see the progress over now more than 15 years, very rewarding....My two high school kids have friends on the football team that tell them "your dad is jacked", comments I never would have gotten in my 20's I'm getting in my mid 40's and it was achieved by cutting the time spent by 90% but doing it with laser focus on (as stated in section 7.66 of Beyond Brawn) "golden fleece of bodybuilding and strength training--linear progress for long periods"

My own son is now 14 and starting to lift as required for high school sports. He has the same passion for it as his old man. The first thing I had him do was read the Insider's Tell All Handbook on Weight Training Technique, followed by starter sessions on squat, deads, bench press, overhead press, pullups--and that's ALL! We video tape his technique and review it for corrections. The amount of weight is meaningless until he gets his form down. We talk constantly about form, stimulus, rest and recovery, and GRADUAL progress in the Big Five. He now has his own logbook and is faithfully documenting his small increase each session and feeling the reward of documented accomplishment. He's starting to read Beyond Brawn at the beginning of his lifting life, rather than after the prime years as was my case. So the way I like to think of it is that my years of frustration and failure were a sacrifice made for his benefit and with luck, the benefit of others he might reach over time when they compare his short but effective program against their obscenely long but ineffective programs. I will forever be an apostle of Stuart's work and try to reach as many young lifters as possible with these fruits of knowledge.

So with that history, "Inside the Mind of an Iron Icon", was an amazing read for me, literally read it every spare second I had (including stop lights on the street :-) I've had the same questions about this reclusive author answered in this book. Learning more about Stuart personally beyond his 400x20 deadlift quest outlined in BB really completed the journey. In addition, getting it in context of Chuck and Marty's successful lifting careers was quite special as I got to know about them and their friends in the process.

If you lift and truly want to accomplish your goals, make Stuart McRobert's books the foundation. And top it off with Inside the Mind of any Iron Icon to put in context the effectiveness and reach of his system. The program designs Mike has created for himself have already given me great ideas on how to further my progress. Resistance training can literally be a fountain of youth, something you cannot understand in your 20s but I now understand at 46 with a small foundation of core exercises I can do year upon year, while still having time for career, family, and other too can get your life back!!

Di drums1959 - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Fan's of Stuart McRobert and his magazine Hardgainer will love this book. This book covers a lot of ground. Especially useful for
less experienced trainees. Good stuff in here for the more advanced trainer as well - particularly the chapters Chuck Miller dedicated to
his powerlifting training career. A great book on ALL the specifics of HARD training, how to set up a program, how to keep getting gains
from a program. These programs on paper may not look that difficult to many because of the limited number of sets. Try running thru these
programs for awhile where the emphasis is on barbells/dumbells - NO MACHINES, exercises which hit the core and multiple muscles per
lift, therefore calling for HEAVY weights no matter the rep range worked. RESULTS can be yours following the advice in this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Top Read by An Expert on Effective, Brief, Safe Training 19 luglio 2016
Di Richard Winett - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Walk into any gym or health club around the world, and no matter the years of training, gender, or age of the people you see training, they all can greatly benefit from Stuart McRobert's latest work. Presented in an extended interview format, the book covers every aspect of training and nutrition. There are many points from McRobert's excellent prior books and the 15 years of his Hard Gainer magazine. But, there also are new and timely insights. Basically, this book provides an important wake up call to, literally, people around the world. We can be more effective in our training by training less often and with many fewer sets, training harder, and training more safely, and carefully attending to nutrition and recovery. It is difficult to discern what one's true potential is unless you are training effectively and this book provides the details about how to do just that in a very accessible format. In addition, McRobert provides some personal disclosures that will make all of us consider the role that exercise plays in our life.

Di Nathan G. Harvey - Pubblicato su

It's impossible for me to write a review that would truly sum up the genius of this book, the staggering training wisdom that it contains, or the nostalgia that reading it set off inside of me.

I just wish that I would have known it's contents, and that of Stuart's other books and publications, back when I was a young teen trying to figure out how I was going to fit Bill Pearl's giant workouts into my life. I wanted so badly to be a football star, but that's hard to do when you barely tip the scales at 130 lbs. The HIT recommendations of Darden and Jones helped some, but after some initial gains, I stagnated with workouts that were too long, despite pushing myself to absolute failure on every set. I felt guilty after every workout, convinced that if I had really worked hard enough I wouldn't be stuck at the same size and strength levels. Much of my weight and strength gain was probably due to normal growth, and although good speed and strength for my size helped me to be fairly successful as a high school athlete, I peaked at a top bodyweight of 170 lbs, and my dreams of stardom never came true.

It wasn't until my mid twenties that I came across Stuart's books and Hardgainer magazine, and it was both a complete revelation and the beginning of a wonderful period of my life. I discovered workouts that actually fit into my life, led to clockwork gains without the guilt of wondering if I had tried hard enough, and didn't require me to endure pain that made every workout a miserable affair. Within two years I tipped the scales at more than 230 lbs. and had pushed my strength far beyond my earlier levels. I met friends and mentors on the forum, wrote articles for the magazine, and enjoyed the heck out of the whole process. Chuck's interview of Stuart reminds me of much that happened back then. I just wish that it all took place when I was still playing competitive sports.

I think that Chuck and Marty's input about powerlifting, and elite athletes, are a wonderful complement to Stuart's discussion of what works for drug-free, genetically typical trainees. We usually read that there are no secrets in training, but I think that their combined efforts actually served as an expose' of sorts, showing that many elite lifters have reached their staggering success through training programs so intentionally brief that it's hard to believe. If you have avoided McRobert's teachings in the past because you didn't want to associate with 98 lb. weaklings who do nothing but whine about their fragile bone structures, Chuck and Marty's input will show you that you have nothing to fear, and much to gain.

To sum up, I think that this is a great book for anyone who is looking for intelligent guidelines that will help them to reach a new level of size and strength, or anyone who would like to know more "behind the scenes" information about the Hardgainer years.

Well done, Chuck and Stuart!

5.0 su 5 stelle Amazing Breadth of Information That Anyone Who Wants To Build Strength Should Invest In 31 luglio 2016
Di Sandy Sommer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Stuart McRobert is one of the great minds in the world of strength and if you want to get strong safely and simply then you will want this book in your library. In the interview process, Chuck Miller does a fantastic job of digging out all the nuggets you will need to come up with mostly likely, a better plan than the one you're currently using. Remember more is NOT better and less, done well, is most likely the better path. I wouldn't say that the interview/book meanders yet it does hit on so many different topics that you can start anywhere in it, depending on what is most important to you, and be OK. The common thread, theme and where McRobert always comes back to is, that doing the important lifts and doing them safely and well is how we get stronger. I haven't been under the bar in sometime and the reading motivated me enough to squat and bench this past Friday, July 29, 2016. I will report back in 6 month intervals, as I am 100 percent sure to see progress. I'm 54 years old and 6'3" 182 lbs. I stopped serious lifting 5 years in April. At that point I weighed 193 lbs and was deadlifting almost 400, benching 230 and squatting almost 300. Not all that impressive yet for my body type and build, and that I was, and remain a neophyte, it was OK. I am positive thgat I will exceed these numbers as a "hard gainer" using Stuart's teachings. And I won't get hurt and I will exercise patience and consistency. Cheers!
