About the Author

Maik Wiedenbach is a fitness coach, physique architect and nutritonist based in New York City. He is an NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer and AFPA certified nutrition t and weight management consultant. He has written articles for the LA Times, Baltimore Sun and Forbes Magazine and has been featured in Men's Exercise. A two-time World Cup and Olympic team swimmer in his native Germany, Maik arrived in the US on a swimming scholarship at Fordham University, from which he graduated with a degree in history, having already received a master’s degree in philosophy and history in Germany. After a stint as a Wall Street stockbroker, Maik founded his company Adler Training (www.adlertraining.com) in 2006 and quickly became one of the most sought after trainers in Manhattan. As a medalist athlete and scholar, he uniquely combines professional dedication, empathy, and intellectual rigor in keeping up with the latest fitness and health study findings in medical journals. His motto is : Anyone can be in shape! Adler Training specializes in male and female executives, who need customized meal plans and workouts to fit their hectic schedules and frequent travel. The approach embraces a revolutionary concept in personal training. Moving away from the usual one hour session concept, Adler Training offers a full-time coaching experience that begins with a contract between coach and trainee. The trainee commits to a specific goal-–whether losing weight, gaining muscle, or recovering from injuries—and a timeline from which a customized program is developed. Every client is treated individually with regard to his or her needs, goals, and schedule. Training, based on the latest scientific research, is planned in phases over the course of a year to help each client achieve his or her goals. Maik’s clients have won bodybuilding competitions as well as triathlons or tennis tournaments.

Bad health and fitness advice is everywhere these days. You can't trust the magazines because they're just there to sell you products. You can't trust the trainers because they don't actually have to know much to get their license. You can't trust the Internet forums because they're full of broscience and general idiocy. It's quite hard to find the actual scientific truths amongst all the exaggerated crap, but Maik does a very good job of it in this book.

Whether you're new to training or experienced, you'll enjoy this book. I've been lifting for nearly a decade and consider myself fairly educated in the field and I clarified quite a few things. I also recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series)--one of the better overall health and fitness books that I've read in a while.

I have been working out for the last couple of years regularly, watching what I eat, etc. I have made great strides in losing weight and getting into shape. I consider myself a bit of a health and fitness nut, so I do a lot of reading and reaching out to people / trainers for different workout routines and advice, and often hear conflicting information about what works best. It's so great to come across this book and finally have everything people hear put out in the open and critiqued in an accurate and detailed manner. I feel like already I am pushing through this "rut" I seemed to have been stuck in for the last few months. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to continue getting into shape or to work through the plateaus, as well as to dispell a lot of common misperceptions that are out there in this industry. Maik, thank you for writing this book!

Author Maik Wiedenbach is a fitness coach, physique architect, nutritionist, two-time World Cup and Olympic team swimmer for his native Germany, has degrees in history and philosophy, has been a Wall Street stockbroker and has founded his own company - Adler Training - THE source for training in Manhattan. His motto is `Anyone can be in shape!' and that is what this fine book is all about.

Wiedenbach's book is about individual empowerment. In his words, we don't need an expensive personal trainer or fancy machine, just dedication, basic equipment, and the solid scientifically based information he offers in this book.
He attacks myths such as Weight training to get big, Cardio to get lean; cutting exercises, bulking exercises; importance of number of reps; which supplements fight cellulite; are there any supplements worth buying?; the best exercise for the abs is not the crunch!

Maik's well written and well designed book is a must for frustrated exercise advocates. The book is POD at Createspace so it likely will be available here on Amazon.com soon. It is a winner. Grady Harp, May 12

Maik Wiedenbach could likely sell a book of simply photographs of his workout routine: if there were ever a standard to follow it is the cover of this well-informed no nonsense book on achieving and maintaining fitness. Wiedenbach's information he shares is based on scientific fact about nutrition and physical therapy concepts. From the title it may seem as though this book is yet another 'rag' on big money maker health prophets. It is not that, though he does lay waste to some popular misconceptions about diet and exercises.

But that is where this Adonis figure steps away from his competitors. After listing the myths that abound, he inserts accessible methods for reducing size (the musculoskeletal tree covered in a blanket of adipose tissue) by addressing solid dietary information and how to permanently change the way to eat) and an exercise regimen that is smart, fast, repeatable and accompanied by the all important concept of stretching routines that prepare the body for resistance training. So according to Wiedenbach ignore the miracle adjuncts (thermogenic capsules, strange herbals remedies, protein bars and other fad diets and routines that promise the world but fall by the wayside due to LOI (lack of interest). And if it is inspiration you need, keep the cover photo handy! Grady Harp, January 12
