I bought this book awhile back and since I'm not "social network" active this review is actually my way of getting a message to Matt. My thoughts on the book will be obvious.
I was intrigued first by the title, a thought I've had for a very long time. The garbage men of my youth used to "lift" everyday with no issues. Those who do manual labor don't get to take days off. Why can't I work out everyday? Because everything I've read from the so-called "experts" says I can't....
I love this book! I've never read a book that so got to my inner questions. Matt writes in a very humble way. There's no arrogance here. He's not selling anything. He's just saying "maybe". Try it and see. Well, I'm 58, and I started lifting everyday. And, I don't do any squats! I work chest, shoulders, arms, back, abs, and I work them almost everyday (at least 6 out of 7 days). matt says to just show up so that's what I do. I show up and see what happens. I'm now on week 14, maybe 15 with no issues. I relaxed my attitude. I learned from matt that maybe what I was calling fatigue was just adaptation. I learned to listen, and due a large part to what I have learned from this book, I am free. My body's changed; I've got a look I used to dream about. I highly recommend Matt's book, Squat Everyday.

Long story short, this book has reenergized my workouts.

At 54, with a lot of athletic injuries and surgeries over the years, I was convinced that high rep workouts were my only choice. But I found them too boring and tedious and I skipped the gym more often than I went.

Using the principles found in this book, I find myself challenged and looking forward to hitting the gym almost every morning. Matt, I can not thank you enough.

This book is amazing because it gives you a great history lesson on strength training, but also breaks down the intricacies of what we call "recovery" and how it might not be as black and white as we think.

While you may or may not adopt the training program of daily squatting presented in the book, I can assure you it will help you develop a better understanding of what the body can tolerate, and I might even say strive under some conditions.

I would suggest this book to a lifter who has already completed a linear progression and tinkered with intermediate programs. Auto-regulation is an advanced method that requires a lifter to know themselves as well as have a strong foundation.

He says some of the same things over & over again. You should add a tips & tricks section & maybe condense the book a little. Overall it was a descent read & encouraged me to suck it up & lift.

you can pretty much purchase this book and never worry about buying another training manual again. It's all here. The frameworks you need to build programs for yourself, the insight behind adjustments and when/how to make them, and best of all, the judgment to know when to apply the wisdom in the book. It's not a how-to guide, but it gives you all of the tools to assemble things yourself, if you're paying attention.

the secondary benefit is that it shatters some myths around training handily, by citations in the scientific literature, and plenty of anecdote.

And finally, the best part is that Perryman himself has taken the knowledge in this book and, with the same mediocre genetics we all have, has turned himself into a fairly strong person through dedication and the application of his own principles. He walks the walk. Some other people out there just like to talk.

For anyone that thinks for themselves, this book isn't going to give you much of anything. Chances are you already know what is in this book. There is no program in it, it's just a philosophical expression with some references thrown in so you know he's not yanking your chain when he tells you to figure it out on your own because his experience is just that: his. He can't/won't guarantee you anything in the book, nor should he. Save your seven bucks and just go squat heavy everyday without killing yourself, stop worrying about stuff that really doesn't matter and be true to yourself. IF you do that you'll be stronger in every sense... for life.

Fantastic book packed with real information that makes sense. You'll be surprised by just how much ground this book covers; everything from training methodology to psychology and biology. We all love "Muscle & Fitness" as a bit of fun reading, but we all [should] know that its all about selling supplements and perpetuating a fantasy. This book is about real world application of getting to ones personal best and understanding that your body is way more resilient than you think it is.

As a precursor, let me say that I've been reading Myosynthesis for a long time and am a huge personal fan of Matt.

Reading this book is like having a 1-on-1 discussion with Matt, except he actually takes the time to explain everything he normally mentions that you act like you know so you don't seem stupid. Seriously, I'm halfway through the book right now and ignoring all of the great ideas on training, programming and the mindset you should have in the gym, he's talked about: The history of powerlifting and Olympic lifting, antifragility, and of course biology (and the biology portions are a lot more interesting than what most weight training books say which is "Do x y and z because science"), it's seriously awesome.

I was a little hesitant at first because I know how much Matt hates cookie-cutter "do this because it works for everyone ever" workout programs and the idea of a book on his version of the bulgarian-style seemed like he was going to jump the shark to write a bare-bones version of his method to work for everyone. Gladly, that's not what you'll find here. What you'll find are both the tools to make programming easy and not mystical spreadsheets and some great discussions on higher level topics that are of interest to anyone involved with changing their lifestyle or body.

This author's very, uhm.....controversial.....views actually correspond to centuries of empirical evidence that any military veteran should be familiar with. Soldiers in training encounter daily, increasingly intense physical efforts on the same exercises over and over, without "overturning," and make continual improvements. Perelman uses science to explain why you can apply that to YOUR strength training....and you don't have to go to Ranger School or Selection to get the benefits!
