About the Author
I started working out back in 1990 at the age of 12 years old. That year I asked my parents if they would get me a weight set for Christmas so that I could workout and get big. I can still remember how excited I was Christmas morning when I woke up and saw this HUGE box under the Christmas tree. After ripping through all the fancy wrapping paper and colored bows there was a York 2001 home gym machine and a York barbell and dumbbell set. We set it up that very day and I did my first official weight training workout on Christmas day 1990. That's how I got my humble start with bodybuilding. From that point on I was hooked on bodybuilding and would workout daily with my little home gym. During high I entered my first Bodybuilding contest, The 1995 Newfoundland Provincials, I was 17 years old at the time. Since then I have competed almost every year in bodybuilding competitions. After high school I went on to do a computer studies program in College. This is where I got my interest in computers and the Internet. And in January of 1999 I created my website www.LeeHayward.com. From then on I've focused on improving it, adding more useful information, and making it better each year. Through my website I have had the opportunity to help literally thousands of aspiring bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts from all over the world with their training and nutrition programs. And over the past 10+ years www.LeeHayward.com has become one of the most popular bodybuilding and fitness sites online averaging over 100,000 visitors each month.

The first part of the book offers a vague overview of the bodybuilding competition process, such a pre-judging, compulsatory posing, etc. There are a number of poor quality pictures of the author in various poses.
The second part of the book offers a disjointed array concepts leading up to the actual competition. More grainy pictures of the author at various stages of cutting are shown.
Overall, this book is devoid of any real insight into the real world of bodybuilding contests. If you're looking for "silly little helpful hints" on tanning creams, posing shorts or hair removal, then this might be the book for you. But, if you're really interested in such things as intense cutting diets or pre-contest drug use (such as diuretics) then take your business elsewhere.
In other words, take your business elsewhere. I can't think of a single good reason that any serious bodybuilder should buy this book.
Very very disapointed. This book is a epic fail.
