We think pretty highly of Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik. When someone asks us which strength book they should start with, "DT" gets the nod in just about every case.

...but you sure don't have to take our word for it. Here's a page of testimonials and reviews from many folks out there in case you would like to read what others have to say:

"Brooks Kubik wrote the most inspiring strength training book of all time. I defy anyone to read this book and tell me otherwise..."

Scott C. Locklin
Berkeley, California

"DINOSAUR TRAINING is the best book on training I have ever read. And I have read many over the last 20+ years. The book provides, in incredible detail, the prescription for bigger stronger muscles. The problem with so many other books is that they tell you what you want to hear instead of what you need to hear. Dinosaur Training tells it like it is. Hard work + heavy weights + progression + compound movements + abbreviated workouts = success."

Joseph P. Nicholson

"WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH to say how great Dinosaur Training is. In fact, this is the strength training Bible! This is a classic masterpiece. Everything you need to know about really productive training or how to develop tremendous strength is covered in this book.

If bodybuilding left you with no gains...if popular training methods didn't work for you...if REAL strength is something that interests you...if you are tired of a book consisting of nothing but 5 pounds exercises and stretching...if you want to know nearly everything about productive training: What are best exercises?...How much time do I have to train? ...What are singles and why do them?...How many reps should I do to became stronger?...How did the old-time strongmen who lifted near 400 pounds arms length over head WITHOUT ANY CHEATING GEAR (supplements, wrist wraps, steroids and other widgets) develop their strength?...

How to substantially increase your poundage on exercises...How to improve your grip strength and close heavy spring grippers...How to raise your physical fitness to a super level and so on...

BUY THIS BOOK! YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT!


Nothing else to say. Best 20 bucks I ever invested in training in my life."

"IN WRITING DINOSAUR TRAINING, Brooks Kubik has blessed us with the finest strength training book written in more than thirty years, and one of the greatest and most inspirational strength training books of all time. If you want to learn the real, no-nonsense secrets to building true, functional strength that will last a lifetime, each page of Dinosaur Training is packed with those secrets.

No gimmicks here, just hard work and how to do it the right and most productive way. Kubik is no armchair authority. A former world record holder in the bench press, he is a lifetime drug-free lifter and athlete who practices the tried-and-true, old-school strength-building methods he details in Dinosaur Training. Today, past the half-century mark in age, Kubik is far stronger and fitter than the vast majority of much younger athletic men, a living testimony of Dinosaur Training's effectiveness.

In conclusion, I give Dinosaur Training my highest recommendation, and I strongly urge you to do yourself a special favor and purchase a copy. It will be the best strength-training investment you will ever make."

Rick Helley

"DINOSAUR TRAINING IS A GREAT BOOK if you want to get strong , I mean REALLY strong. It's for people who are mostly interested in functional strength and don't care much about appearance. I personally use many of Kubik's methods like heavy 5x5, lots of grip work, and odd object training, and have enjoyed wonderful results."

Eric C. Peters
Raleigh, North Carolina

"THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing the old-time methods back to life, and cutting through all the modern-day junk. I have greatly improved my strength and endurance in six short months."

Philip Ameris

"DINOSAUR TRAINING revolutionized my training to points of no return. I read Dinosaur Training in one sitting and haven't been the same since. Since then I have taken in some punishing and wonderful training sessions. My strength is climbing every week. Barbells, barrels, stones, and car pushing make life good."

Gino Giles

"I AM A HIGH SCHOOL COACH. We have been rather successful during the 90's, but your book, Dinosaur Training, really challenged my thinking on strength training for my student/athletes."

Jon Schultheis
Strength Coach
Keansburg, New Jersey

"I JUST GOT DONE re-reading Dinosaur Training--it always re-energizes me in my quest to become strong. If you are serious about strength training, then buy the book and join the ranks of the Dinosaurs. "

R. John Legerdemain

"I HAVE HAD DINOSAUR TRAINING for quite a while and the concepts and movements that are discussed have all helped me move my strength training to another level. Learing to apply Mr. Kubik's principles has helped make my body "one piece" instead of a bunch of disjointed body parts. That has been a game changer as far as my martial arts training is concerned."

Michael Clark

"DINOSAUR TRAINING is one of the best training books that I have read in a long while, and I read quite a few of them. I am a successful strength coach and it is rare that someone makes my ears perk up when they talk about lifting and getting strong. Brooks' methods are so simple, yet so brutally hard and they are fresh. You don't need the marathon workouts and all the jazz, this guy did it training out of his garage. Pick this book up if you are serious about your strength training! "

Kyle Newell

"BROOKS KUBIK pulls no punches when it comes to modern man's current weakness. His training idea's are rock-solid and if followed will make you STRONG. It's not about "shaping" that's for sure. Follow his advice and be prepared to buy bigger clothes and make more trips to the butcher shop for muscle fuel. "

Joseph M. Pavel

"I HAVE BEEN WORKING out seriously since high school (30+ years) and have at least 30 books on weight training. Dinosaur Training ranks as one of the best for anyone interested in improving their overall strength."

D. Richardson

"...Dinosaur Training is an EXCELLENT training resource. It is a MUST HAVE! It doesn't have pages and pages of glossy photos...no need. The info contained in it is fantastic. I trained primarily with a thick bar for most of my movements and I can't tell you how beneficial it was...If you really want to get big and powerful Dinosaur Training is it...bottom line. Remember, way back in the day, long before protein powder and chemicals, people got big and strong with basic lifts and good nutrition. It still works today."
