I knew this program was going to work before I even got started. After around 10 years of being in the military and always weight training, I remember my best and most dramatic gains were when I had to take time off from the gym because I was too busy at work. Really?....Holy cow... it all becomes clear...
Mike Metzer did what Doctors can't. He conducted his own studies by tweaking this technique as he trained himself and hundreds of clients over a period of years. I've only been on this program a short time and I already feel 10 times better than any other program (i.e. Crossfit, Muscle Mag workouts, etc.....). Finally someone has said what I've always thought was the case for years. It's not only ok to take time off, it's critical.
I give this book 4 stars because it gets a little wordy at the beginning but I realized all Mike was trying to do was defend his position. I don't think he needs to. The proof is in the results.
This program really works and I can't wait to actually start getting somewhere with my training instead of the same ol same ol. I've always been cut but size has always eluded me. Finally I know why.
Thanks Mike, you will always be a legend. And thanks John for finishing this book. It has changed my life and my training.
