What Really Works by Brooks Kubik

Quote:
What really works when it comes to building strength, power and muscle?

I thought a top 10 list might be interesting. Here's my list --- see how it compares to yours:

(1) Barbells

(2) Hard work

(3) Heavy weights

(4) Squats

(5) Olympic lifting

(6) 5 x 5

(7) Abbreviated training

(8) Heavy singles

(9) Multiple sets of low reps

(10) Hard work (yeah, I know it's already on the list, but if the local paper can include two kinds of moisturizer in THEIR list, I can include "hard work" twice in MY list!)

I like simplicity in training and simplicity in articles. This has both!

Good list. I'm currently reading dinosaur training. Brooks Kubrik and M&B go together well.
The only thing he left off the list was eat lilke a horse.
