5.0 von 5 Sternen Hervorragend! 14. Oktober 2003
Format:Taschenbuch
"Beyond Brawn" zu kaufen war eine der besten Entscheidungen in meinem
Trainingsleben. Zuvor war ich unsicher und verwirrt durch die
widersprüchlichen Ansichten, die ich in Büchern und im Internet
gelesen und durch eigene Erfahrung gesammelt hatte. "Beyond Brawn" hat
als erstes Buch den Nebel gelichtet und meine Fragen beantwortet.
Was macht dieses Buch einzigartig?
Stuart McRobert berücksichtigt, dass jeder Mensch andere körperliche
Voraussetzungen hat. Jeder kann Erfolg haben, aber nicht jeder auf die
gleiche Weise. Nur die wenigsten Menschen können sich zum Beispiel von
einer schweren Übung in zwei bis drei Tagen erholen, dennoch hören
viele Autoren nicht auf, Programme zu empfehlen, die nur bei
genetischen Übermenschen oder Steroidmonstern Fortschritte erzielen.
Stuart McRobert zeigt, wie jeder Mensch sein eigenes Trainingsprogramm
maßschneidern kann. Er erklärt, mit welchen Übungen man sicher und
wirkungsvoll trainiert, welche Ziele ohne Drogenmißbrauch realisierbar
sind, wie man sich richtig ernährt und erholt, um optimalen
Muskelaufbau zu ermöglichen, wie man sein Training intelligent im
Voraus plant, wie man sich einen eigenen Trainingsbereich einrichten
kann, wie man mit Verletzungen umgeht und vieles mehr.
McRobert's Botschaft: Trainiere seltener, kürzer, härter und
erfolgreicher, ein Leben lang!
Ich wünsche allen anderen Lesern viel Erfolg mit diesem hervorragenden
Buch!
Wichtiger Hinweis: Als Ergänzung sollte man sich unbedingt "The
Insider's Tell-All Handbook on Weight-Training Technique" vom selben
Autor zulegen. Darin wird die sichere Durchführung der einzelnen
Übungen bis ins Detail beschrieben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Das beste Buch zum Thema 26. August 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Beyond Brawn ist eine riesige Bereicherung für mein Trainingsleben gewesen und jeder der Gewichtstraining o. Bodybuilding betreibt oder dies beabsichtigt zu tun, sollte es gelesen haben.
Es ist nicht nur ein Buch über einen Sport mit einer Anhäufung lauter trockener Informationen - hier schreibt ein Mann seine Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse nieder, der sich fast sein ganzes Leben lang intensiv mit diesem Sport beschäftigt hat und stellt sie gängigen Meinungen und Methoden gegenüber. Alles ist in einem einfachen, flüssigen und persönlichen Stil geschrieben, der einen direkt anspricht, und das Gefühl eines Coaches gibt, der einen an die Hand nimmt.
Jeder von uns kennt einige Menschen, die schon mal Mitglied in einem Fitnessstudio waren oder es noch sind, oder man selbst war es einmal - aber wie viele Menschen kennen Sie, die erfolgreich ein Muskelaufbautraining absolviert haben und man sagen konnte, wow, der hat sich aber verändert!? Es ist wohl kaum jemand dabei, denn die meisten brechen erfolglos wieder ab. Warum geschieht dies? Weshalb scheinen so viele Menschen keinen Erfolg in diesem Sport erzielen zu können und weshalb stellt die Motivation ein so großes Problem dar?
Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen findet man in diesem Buch. Es werden auch viele grundlegende Angelegenheiten geklärt, z.B. welche Rolle die genetischen Voraussetzungen spielen, wie man an das Training heran gehen sollte, welche Erfolge man erwarten kann, wie man sich einen, für sich selbst passenden, Plan zusammen stellt und periodisiert. Man erfährt u.a. auch welche Rolle die Nahrung und Erholung spielt, was man bei Übertraining tun sollte und wie man Verletzungen vermeidet und vieles, vieles mehr.

4.0 von 5 Sternen THE most comprehensive book on the topic. 18. Januar 1999
Von Lyle Mcdonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
At just under 500 pages, BEYOND BRAWN is, bar none, THE most comprehensive book I've ever read on the topic of bodybuilding, and I¹ve read several hundred books.
BEYOND BRAWN is written in very non-technical language. With 22 total chapters, no aspect of productive weight-training has been overlooked. Section 1 is entitled "Establishing a secure foundation" and discusses general information of value for those who are embarking upon the goal of adding muscle mass.
Section 2 is the real meat of the book and is entitled "How to train." At almost 200 pages, Stuart has left no topic uncovered with regards to safe and productive training. Topics include setting up a training cycle, exercise intensity, exercise selection and technique, intensity cycling, personalizing your program, overtraining, and others. Only topics of true importance to the average trainee are discussed in this book. Unlike most bodybuilding books, which are no more than simple fluff, BEYOND BRAWN actually accomplishes the goal of providing tons of useful, no-nonsense information for genetically average trainees who want to increase their strength and size. BEYOND BRAWN is not an overly dogmatical tome which espouses a single way of training for everyone. It presents numerous interpretations in terms of set and rep goals, length of a cycle, training intensity, and exercise selection, to accommodate needs of all types of trainees. Ultimately, I guess the best thing I can say about it, repeating from above is this: "BEYOND BRAWN is, without a doubt, THE most comprehensive book ever written on the topic of strength training and bodybuilding for the genetically average individual." And, again, keep in mind that that statement comes from a guy who¹s read several hundred books on the topic of strength training in the past ten years. So my endorsement does not come lightly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen All that you need to know 28. Februar 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is not a lone voice in the wilderness of body-building, nor is its advice "new." It is one author's practical guide to the principles of effective body building for people without genetic advantages. Numerous experts and professional trainers in the field who have been buried under the avalanche of muscle magazine hype, supplements, and steroid abuse -- the best-kept non-secret of the bodybuilding world -- share this philosophy. These people are finding a voice on web sites..., but this is one of a precious few books that puts a great deal of that knowledge at your fingertips for easy reference.
If you are someone who doesn't want to do illegal drugs, your genetics DO matter. So does your capacity to recover between intense workouts. Most people can't go to the gym 4-6 days a week and expect muscle-building results that will continue to pile on over months or years. I'm living testament to that, having done typical training methods for three years and getting nowhere after my initial beginner's gains. Tweaking my workouts and nutrition in various ways had little effect if any at all. Then I followed the principles laid out in this book and (so far) have gained 7 pounds in seven weeks that wasn't fat. Sound like a gimmick? It isn't. The gimmicks are in the hyped-up marketing campaigns of the bodybuilding industry. BEYOND BRAWN is about safety, sanity, hard work, getting the most out of the hand you've been dealt, and the fine art of knowing when you are doing too much and thus hindering your progress.
I will agree with the previous reviewers that there is a lot of repetition. It's a small inconvenience to pay for all the valuable information you get, but probably a necessary thing to a reader who has done high-volume training for years and may be tempted to hold on to counter-productive elements of their ingrained training style.
Another earlier review made the bizarre claim that you will get fat using this approach. You do not get fat from adopting an abbreviated, high-intensity weight-training program - you get fat from EATING TOO MUCH. Nutrition and aerobics are covered in the book and specific strategies are discussed for figuring out what your optimal caloric intake should be for adding muscle. If you get fat, you weren't following the directions.
Since everyone's body is different, the author presents a loose enough framework for the reader to figure out what works best for him or her, but if you fail the basics (proper training, nutrition and rest) then you won't see gains and you run a higher risk of injuring yourself.
If you are serious about training, get this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stuart McRobert - Beyond Brawn is Beyond Typical Books 12. Februar 2005
Von Bret L. Hittleman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It was back in the 80's when I first read Stuart McRoberts excellent articles in Perry Rader's Iron Man magazine. Here was a voice in the wilderness warning that overtraining is counter-productive and that much of the advice dispensed by illegal drug using professional bodybuilders in the glitzy magazines is useless, and in fact harmful, for the average, natural trainee.

As a neophyte who had made good initial progress on a basic sensible routine but after a year or so became "stagnant", I tried many of the routines in Muscle and Fitness and other sensational magazines of the day. In them, articles ghost-written for the big name bodybuilders, would detail Herculean, if laborious 6 days per week, 2 to 3 hour bodybuidling sessions with 6 sets of 12 reps for each angle of each individual muscle. Obsessed with becoming the next Arnold, Platz, Haney and Oliva my wife, kids and social activities were often put on hold as I just had to get my workout in. All this compulsive behavior for a somewhat muscular, but not much above average physique.

I was soon attempting Arnold's 6 day per week twice daily "body building" workout - and that is when it all came crashing down. I got very ill and lost much of my previous gains. I had no idea why - after all if Platz could do it why couldn't I?

Here was McRobert, and a few others, writing that a few sets of the multi-joint exercises done, at most, twice weekly would actually promote muscle growth! You see, I was quite naieve in that I didn't even know that steroids existed or that guys like Arnold were actually "cheating" and then telling me how I too, could develop a phsyique just like his! Only one little problem - they never said in those articles which and how much steroids to take. It's really no wonder that my nervous system could not withstand the routines used by the professionals and using illegal steroids, when I finally learned about them, was definitely out of the question for me.

Even still after reading McRobert's articles and corresponding with him, I refused to believe that I could build the type of body I wanted with abbreviated training. I was walking around in a severe state of overtraining for many years - and this led to some serious health repercussions that I won't go into here. Suffice to say I essentially burned out my nervous system from working out too frequently and too heavily with not enough recuperation.

Thanks to McRobert I wound up cutting way back on the amount of sets, reps, and poundages in my workouts I built up to 238 pounds bodyweight and got to lifting some respectable poundages (for a natural trainee) in the big lifts - but had I accepted and put into effect fully McRobert's theory of abbreviated training I would have probably gone much further and not suffered health problems. Alas, it is so often the case that when we are young we have the strength but don't have the knowledge and when we are older we have the knowledge but no longer have the strength. Young lifters, read and heed!

Now in my forties, by necessity, it is strictly abbreviated training for me. I still hope to hoist big poundages and keep improving for a couple more decades using the kind of sensible training outlined in Beyond Brawn.

Young lifters, especially, would do well to read and re-read Beyond Brawn and put into effect McRobert's techniques of "cycling". When I was younger I thought I should lift heavy all the time - I didn't understand that the body can not take that over long periods and cycling poundages is absolutely necessary for progress. All this holds true for the older trainee as well.

Lifting weights and wanting a superpysique can develop into an obession. After awhile senseless workouts where the trainee is just trying to complete a number - reps, sets, etc - becomes non-productive and useless for achieving the original goal: muscle mass and strength. Beyond Brawn is a book that can bring it all back into perspective - explain what reasonable goals can be attained and if you are genetically gifted maybe much more. If you are wandering aimlessly from one workout routine to the next published each month in the latest glossy magazine and you are lifting the same poundages as last year - you can get back to actually gaining again using the advice in Beyond Brawn.

Beyond Brawn is an essential tool for anyone who wants to build muscle and get stronger. Although aimed at the genetically challenged and "average" trainee, others would benefit as well. It can be difficult to accept, but once the trainee understands that without the use of illegal anabolic enhancers he is NOT going to become the next Arnold, Haney, Wheeler, et al, he is going to need good common sense advice on how to achieve his potential - and Beyond Brawn is possibly the best book out there for the natural trainee.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It works, but.... 27. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've been following a routine in this book for three and a half weeks. My body weight is up 10 pounds; my arm size increased by an inch; my waist size remains the same.
The weight increases also translated into stregnth increases. My TBDL increased 55 lbs, Dips increased 27 lbs, and chins increased by, well, only 4 reps. But I am repping with 10 extra pounds.
Needless to say, there's a ton of good information in here.
However, I can't give it five stars for the following reasons:
1) The author is too repetitive.
2) The author goes into unnecessary detail sometimes.
3) There's too much sermonizing against 'improper' ways of training. (I personally think this is a turn off.)
Don't get me wrong. This is still a great book. My results speak for themselves. It's just not perfect.
Bottom line. Highly recommended.
One more thing. Contrary to popular opinion, the author does NOT recommend only training twice a week with no aerobics. To be more precise, the author doesn't ONLY recommend training twice a week with no aerobic exercise.
What's so great about this book is its flexibility. It doesn't try to offer one solution to everyone. Depending on time and genetics, the author recommends training anywhere from once a week to three times a week. He also universally favors aerobics, both for fat loss and overall health and wellness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen All Meat; All Muscle 30. November 1999
Von Dr. Gregory Steiner DC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Here is a good book. . "Beyond Brawn" is a book for those who work hard, for those who sweat buckets, and for whom every single fraction of an inch of muscle growth comes hard. "Beyond Brawn" is for those who will NOT give up, and who will accept nothing less than final victory. "Beyond Brawn" injects the much-needed and long absent "something missing" back into bodybuilding That something is nothing less than the original heart and soul of real, body building- for strength, for health, for aesthetic appearance, and most important of all-for longevity, whether in training or in its literal sense.
"Beyond Brawn " is entertaining. It is a good read. Though written to inform, to motivate and to persuade the flavour is of author Stuart McRobert's personal vendetta towards honest and frill-free training and he is not above some shin kicking and bare-knuckling to get the Message across. McRobert-a well published author of many years in the major niche magazines is no friend of the "sell `em another supplement" miracle vendors. And, his stark and realistic standards to which those who want to be strong and sweat blood to become so continue to spur "ordinary, just like you and me" weight trainers on farther than they ever thought possible.
So what commends "Beyond Brawn" over and above the rest of the genre?
There is a chapter on the philosophy of the "hard gainer"; and on expectations on just how big and strong a hard gainer-(someone not
genetically gifted with big bones and easy muscle growth) can become. There are chapters on training cycles that actually work and deliver, and on how to equip a home gym. The book deals with exercise selection-the suggestions guaranteed to annoy some of the conventional wise men of exercise; and there is a particularly interesting chapter on correcting training injuries through trigger point therapy.
The finest summary-the précis of the entire work is told in story form in chapter 3, in which McRobert in his clear style describes how a "wise and uncompromising mentor" would have guided a dedicated, devoted and thoroughly misinformed young man safely and most importantly successfully through years of training, years that in McRobert's words were largely wasted and actually damaging to the body. By following the mentor's lead, the young man might have achieved in a few quick and hard training years a body of impressive size, filled with power and ready and able to train for a lifetime, rather than having taken more than a decade to actually make mistake after mistake and paying the price in injury and pain.
"Beyond Brawn" captures the moment; it expresses and guides the growing thousands of hard gainers who want the power, the muscle- but never knew just how straightforward it was to get it. Every gym has its hundreds who have real desire, true motivation- and have never achieved their goals-because they have bought into the over used, over sold and overly hyped systems and methods that work only for the genetically gifted or chemically enhanced.
Most of are not in the "gifted gene" pool, and most hard gainers will not go the chemical route because it is neither natural nor "right."
If you like hard work, "Beyond Brawn" is for you. If you have a deep desire to gain, this book is for you. If you wish to finally get where you physically thought was never going to happen, read, apply, persist and you will achieve. I did.
