Muscle Myths: 50 Health & Fitness Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making (The Build Healthy Muscle Series)

If you've ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn't--what's scientifically true and what's false--when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.

Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?

"I have bad genetics--I'm a 'hardgainer.'"

"You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack."

    The sooner you learn what's in this book, the sooner you'll know how to drastically improve your health and fitness--it's that simple.

    There is SO much bad information out there thanks to magazines, the Internet, and trainers that don't have a clue what they're doing, and Mr. Matthews does a great job sorting out the BS from the scientifically sound principles of gaining muscle, losing fat, and staying healthy.

    It's like Mythbusters for health and fitness. I highly recommend it and also his book Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series), which contains the best diet and training programs I've seen in a while.

    I'm starting to sound like the leader of this author's fan club. Bought 'Bigger Leaner Stronger' and made it my new workout a few weeks ago and I'm loving it. Wanted more so picked this up. Even if you have the other book, this has a lot of great and well-researched and even surprising information (why diet soda might make you gain more weight than regular soda, for instance).

    If you want to lose weight, I would recommend this too -- which the title doesn't really suggest it, but there's a lot on that subject in here. It's sad that books like Atkins Diet can sell bazillions of copies and get a ton of press, and here you have this totally practical no-nonsense tough love realistic approach to looking better and it's an underdog download-only.

    Also like that he acknowledged, albeit briefly, the benefit of cardio -- even while pointing out all the ways people misuse, over-use or misunderstand it. Many body building types sneer at cardio, but if you read books like Spark: Exercise and the Brain (highly recommended btw), you'll find that, sure, cardio doesn't make you look like the hulk, but it does improve pretty much every other aspect of your physical and mental health and might be the single most important thing you can do (other than eating well) to live a long and active life. The one thing I disagree with the author is that he recommends keeping cardio below 30 minutes, but most of the benefits of cardio in research studies (again, non muscle related) come from doing 30-60 minutes a day.

    This book has a lot of good information, and while I don't agree with every bit of advice that the author says (e.g. "don't stretch before lifting weights" or that "high reps with low weight won't get you toned" both paraphrased), I do agree with most of it. I've been studying a lot of exercise and nutrition books recently, and I think that the author of this book does a good job of exposing a lot of nonsense about lifting weights.
