More About the Author
Brooks Kubik is a five-time national bench press champion who is known to weight training and weightlifting enthusiasts around the world as the author of Dinosaur Training: Lost Secrets of Strength and Development, an international best seller that has been called "the bible of strength training." He also has authored Strength, Muscle and Power, a book that teaches how to develop exactly what it says in the title; Gray Hair and Black Iron, the world's first book about serious training for older lifters; Dinosaur Bodyweight Training, Dinosaur Dumbbell Training, and Chalk and Sweat: Dinosaur Training Workouts for Beginners, Intermediates, and Advanced Lifters. He also has written Knife, Fork, Muscle, a book that covers sensible diet and nutrition for life-long strength and health.
In January 2015, Brooks launched his first e-book in the Kindle bookstore: Dinosaur Training Secrets, Vol. 1, Exercises, Workouts and Training Programs. It is the first in a series of books updating and expanding on his earlier writing. It quickly became a top 10 best-seller in its category.
In addition to writing books and courses, Brooks also publishes The Dinosaur Files, a quarterly journal covering strength training, muscle building, weight training, physical culture, diet and nutrition, and Iron Game history.
In addition to his "how to do it" books, Brooks has written a series of novels covering the legendary champions of the York Barbell Club, and weightlifting and bodybuilding in the United States in the 1930's and 1940's. To date, the series includes five novels: Legacy of Iron; Legacy of Iron 2: Clouds of War; Legacy of Iron 3: The 1,000 Pound Total; Legacy of Iron 4: York Goes to War!: and Legacy of Iron 5: Barbells in the Pacific.
Brooks also has written Black Iron: The John Davis Story, a biography of weightlifting champion John Davis, a two-time Olympic gold medal winner and six-time World champion, who was quite literally the strongest man in the world during his championship years - and who today is almost forgotten, even by his countrymen.
Brooks lives in Louisville, Kentucky with his wife, Trudi. At close to 60-years old, he still trains hard and heavy on Olympic weightlifting in his garage gym. When he's not working on new Dinosaur Training projects, or hitting the iron out in the garage, he likes to squeeze in some work on his backyard vegetable garden.
