Publisher Comments:

Men's Health The Book of Muscle by Lou Schuler and Ian King is the World's Most AUTHORITATIVE Guide to Building Your Body

You probably know a lot about building muscle. You know which curl is the best for your biceps, you do every possible exercise for your abdominals, and your 20-set bench-press routine is the envy of everyone in the gym. So why haven't you gotten the results you want?

This book has the answer. In fact, it probably answers every question you've ever asked about how your muscles work: What makes them grow? What makes them show? Why didn't that champion bodybuilder's routine work for you?

But The Book of Muscle does more than just explain how your muscles work. It also gives you comprehensive muscle-building programs from a world-class trainer.

Ian King has spent 2 decades as strength coach to world-champion and Olympic athletes. He is in wide demand as a lecturer on athletic preparation and physique development, and he is a popular contributor to Men's Health magazine and T-mag.com, the most popular bodybuilding Web site on the planet. Now, for the first time, he brings his extraordinary knowledge and unique muscle-building systems to a book meant for regular guys who like to work out and want to see better results than they've gotten from conventional programs.

Here's what you get from The Book of Muscle that you can't get from any other book:

Three complete 6-month, progressive workout programs created by Ian King to optimize muscle growth by juxtaposing opposing muscle actions

Ian King's revolutionary training-age system to help you determine which program is right for you

Complete abdominal training that ensures you'll not only get that coveted six-pack but also develop the muscles that prevent injuries and produce better performance on the field--any field

Vital advice on warming up, stretching, and recovering between workouts

The latest and best information on how you need to eat to make your muscles grow

If you've never before bought a workout book, this should be your first. And if you've tried all the others, this is the one that finally delivers everything you have ever wanted to know but couldn't find in one place.

Review:

"Whether one wants to build muscles or simply tone them, this book is the perfect introduction to body shaping for men." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

BUILDING MUSCLE is both a science and an art. The science allows you to understand how 650 muscles and more than a quarter-billion individual muscle fibers conspire to set a human body in motion. The art is the magnificence of movement itself as well as the result of that movement--strong, lean, healthy, energetic muscles, the very image of the ancient gods and warriors.

This book is the first to combine the science of muscle building with the art of muscles themselves. Inside, you'll find:

Three total-body muscle-building programs, one each for beginner, intermediate, and advanced exercisers-- a total of 18 months' worth of workouts

Complete descriptions of more than 100 exercises

The most detailed and innovative exercise photography ever contained in a workout book
