You’ve been lifting for a few years. When you take your shirt off, do you look like a professional athlete? Do you even look like you work out?

Many fitness “experts” defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic?

Fitness may be the most failed human endeavor, and you are about to see how exercise science has missed some obvious principles that when enacted will turn you into the superhuman you always wanted to be.

In Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time, Dr. John Jaquish and Henry Alkire explore the science that supports this argument and lay out a superior strength training approach that has been seen to put 20 pounds of muscle on drug-free, experienced lifters (i.e., not beginners) in six months.

Pros: This is GREAT as a supplement to the physical book. The book is a unique and insightful reference to interesting physiology and nutrition research that I haven't seen summarized together in any other place. Cons: If you want to actually read the research you also need a written version of the book to see the 200+ citations, so I bought the paperback as well. The book strongly promotes Jaquish's X3 product, but for me this did not detract from the knowledge gained (however, looking around online it seems a few people are very upset by this). The narrator pronounces Dr. Jaquish's name differently at different times in the book, which I would expect to have been fixed before publishing...
