Granted I am a newb when it comes to lifting weights. I tried the trainer in the gym at first to get me started, and I did build some muscle. I kept up my search trying to figure out what I was doing when I came across this.
This book gives you the in's and out's of why you should listen to what these guys haft to say. Pure hard work out is exactly what it is. This book discribes in detail how to do what you need to do to get the results you really want. YOu dont just want to look pretty you want to be strong. Get off the machines and lift from the ground is some of what this book suggests and the reasons behind it. As a beginner I have taken the advice and see the results from it. I have felt more confident because of what I learned from this book. I look around me and like it says in the book most people in the gym dont know what the hell they're doing. Want to learn what to do? Get this book! I gave it four stars because its very informative and gets down to it without complicating things too much..

I heard Tiki on the radio and eventually bought the book. Tiki's football career got a tremendous boost from the workout program put together by Joe Carini, a power lifter from New Jersey. Joe runs the "House of Iron" gym. He also shrugs 1,400 lbs, no kidding.

Don't expect anything fancy here. There is no space-age equipment, none of those silly bouncy workout balls that are all the rage at other gyms. Carini stresses intense workouts and lots of iron. To give you an idea, I visited Carini's gym to discuss his methods. He told me that once I got used to the program I could vary it some. For example I could put chains on the bar for bench press. Chains on the bar? for variety? Are you kidding me?

When I met Carini he was training an NFL defensive lineman. What I found surprising was that neither Tiki nor the lineman looked huge. It turns out that using the system you can develop great strength without looking like the Hulk.

The book has good pictures and suggested workouts but it needed a better editor. Joe and Tiki each essentially tell the same story about how Tiki succeeded with the system. Its worth the price though. The relative simplicity of the system will show you that the real key to getting strong is hard work.

A great book! "Pure Hard Workout" is a very accurate description of the book's contents. His ideas are simple, straight forward, and effective. I used this workout book for three months and gained 20lbs of muscle. While your personal progress while be directly related to your commitment (I was extremely committed over that time), the principles in this book are solid and relatively simple.

Also note that this book is written for power-training, or for those who want to actually get strong. Body building, or the art of just looking strong, is mostly cosmetic. While power-training will beef you up, the workouts are meant to build layers of thick muscle which are functional, meaning that you wont bulk up as fast as a bodybuilder, but you will be significantly stronger.
