For the previous years I was on a routine where I lifted weights 3 times weekly doing super slow repetitions under the time-under-tension strategy. What a waste of time that was. I barely worked up a sweat. My lifting poundage’s barely increased. The exact opposite is true with this workout. You sweat. Your poundage’s increase dramatically! I’ll never go back to TUT. My joints are fine too as this protocol teaches you proper form to avoid injury.
The feel the hormones this workout creates doing heavy compound movements. All of my friends have commented on the transformation that is taking place with my body and ask what I’m doing. I've given out copies as gifts to close friends and highly recommend this book, there’s lot of useful information in this book from this smart doctor. I’ve emailed him several times—his personal email is in the book—and he has responded in a few days each time answering questions for me! Give it a try, you’ll love it….
I have also trained with weights for over 40 years. During my younger days, I would help fellow weight lifters who were using steroids, which were common and not illegal at that time. I personally was not using them at that time. I was mainly following liver functions which needed to be watched with the oral medications of that time. The intramuscular injections are not as dangerous (hepato-toxic), since they bypass the liver getting into the blood stream.
Then one day, I gave up weight lifting and starting having bouts of depression. This lasted for years and numerous antidepressants which actually made things worse with the weight gain. BUT I never gave up and continued reading. I finally got off all antidepressants and felt the same.
THEN I came across an article written in the late 1950's which extolled the use of testosterone with depression in older male. A later article showed that NO oral antidepressant has ever come close to relieving the depression as testosterone replacement. I got my testosterone checked and it was on the very low side of normal. I found a doctor who would prescribe testosterone for me and I have never regretted that day.
My depression finally resolved and I finally lost the 70 pounds that I had gained on antidepressants. It took years.
I am currently a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine which has very accurate information on its website both for the practitioner and the patient.
Enough with my background. This book is very well written and entertaining. I think that Dr. Olsen, whom I have never met, has simplified the information where a lay-person with no medical background would have no trouble understanding it, if of a average intelligence even with no medical background. He goes through exercises and suggestions including diet and nutrients that are helpful. As for the hormone replacement, one size does not fit all and follow up has to be obtained. I recently switched to his work out plan which does include "cardio".
I am very pleased with the book in all facets, and feel that if you are interested in a life worth living as you get older (such as I have done), you should invest in this book and consider getting evaluated by an anti-aging specialist and receiving hormone replacement.
