From back cover – Are you tired of weight training books that consist of nothing but boring photos? Have you had it up to here with weight training books written by people who don’t know a barbell from a bagel or a dumbbell from a doughnut and who think a power clean is a new kind of laundry detergent? Will you commit cold blooded murder if you see another weigh training book for toners, shapes, pumpers and pencil necks? Are you interested in how the old-timers trained back in the Golden Era of Strength? Dinosaur training was written for you.

Dinosaur training focuses on real world strength training … becoming more powerful … building functional muscle … strengthening the tendons and ligaments … thick bar training … heavy weight … power rack work … heavy grip work … sandbag and barrel lifting … heavy support work … effort dedication … perseverance … concentration … determination … mental toughness … and the kind of hard nosed attitude that has all but disappeared from the Iron Game.
