The "What Would Happen? This time it came from Chris Califano. The mere fact that a younger dedicated lifter can put more hours into his or her training should not be a "license to waste energy. In fact, I am sure that if I had applied the same methods for Progression with Recuperation when I was in my teens, twenties and thirties, I would have gotten further faster.

Dinosaur Training has been used by top strength coaches at major colleges and universities - and by NFL strength coaches. One head coach for an NFL team was so impressed with the book - and with its success-oriented philosophy - that he made it mandatory reading for every single player on the entire team.
Champions in virtually every combat sport - martial artists, cage fighters, grapplers and wrestlers -- have used Dinosaur Training - and that includes more than one world champion and several men rated among the top fighters in the world. The strength coach for the Chicago Bulls used Dinosaur Training - and that was back in the days when Michael Jordan was creating a legacy as the best basketball player of all time.
Dinosaur Training is perfect for home gym trainers - for cellar-dwellers, garage gorillas or backyard supermen. All you need is a barbell. So is a heavy-duty flat bench. Over time, you can add your choice of additional training tools: Dumbbells Grip training tools Thick bars Other heavy awkward objects Anything else that strikes your fancy Which means that you can train Dino style - hard and heavy - in your basement, your garage or even your back yard - and get great results without spending another penny on membership fees for the local gym.
And make no mistake about it. There are thousands of hard training, hard-charging dinosaurs around the world who train in home gyms - and who would never dream of trading their home gym for a commercial facility.
When I wrote Dinosaur Training, I trained in a basement gym. Today I train in my garage. I published Dinosaur Training in March, That was after three years of work to write and research the book - and to test-drive the training ideas in it. The typewritten manuscript was close to pages - and I typed it all by myself. It took a long time. And I probably set a world record for typos and spelling errors. But finishing the manuscript was only the beginning.
The next step was to get it published. And that was a problem. Dinosaur Training was different: It focused on real world strength training - becoming more powerful - building functional muscle - strengthening your tendons and ligaments - thick bar training - heavy weights - power rack work - heavy grip work - sandbag and barrel lifting - heavy support work - effort - dedication - perseverance - concentration - determination - and mental toughness.
And that meant, no publisher would touch it So I had to publish it myself. Publishing a book is expensive. And I ended up with a shipment of copies of the book. The boxes were piled everywhere. It was ridiculous. I had to start selling the little monster - and I had to do it without any marketing budget, without any advertising firm, without any copywriters, and without spending a single penny - because I was flat broke after paying so much to have the book formatted, type-set and printed.
I decided to begin by advertising in three magazines that seemed likely to have readers who would be interested in a book about serious, hard-nosed, heavy-duty Iron Slinging. To keep costs down, I wrote articles for the magazines and traded them for ad space. I had a full-page ad in The Iron Master - a quarter page ad in Hardgainer - and a short classified ad in Milo. No one had websites back then.
The small ads in the three magazines were the only way to get the word out - and if you put the subscription list from all three magazines together, it probably was less than one tenth of one percent of the subscription list for one of the glossies. Maybe less than that. And there was no way to pay for the cost of an ad in one of the glossies. Those things are expensive! So the odds of selling very many copies of the book seemed fairly remote.
But then a miracle happened. Dinosaur Training became an overnight sensation. Before I knew it, I had sold every copy in the first printing and had to order a second printing - and then a third - and the book has continued to sell like hotcakes ever since. Suddenly, overnight, everyone was talking about Dinosaur Training.
I started to receive cards and letters from readers around the world, many of whom reported that they read the book in one sitting. The first person to read Dinosaur Training in its manuscript form, before it was published was William F. Hinbern, the world-famous weight training authority, author, collector and seller of strongman memorabilia, books and courses. Everyone recommended Dinosaur Training.
Everyone wanted a copy. Everyone read it. Several of the top strength coaches in the country bought ten copies at a time and gave them to their lifters, to friends and to fellow coaches.
IronMan asked me to write a feature article on Dinosaur Training - and I did, and they published it. So did Muscle and Fitness. In fact, Joe Weider made a personal phone call, catching me right there in my kitchen as I was cooking dinner after a hard workout - and asked me to write a Dinosaur Training article for him.
In short, the word spread like wildfire -- and as a result, we witnessed the beginning of a worldwide strength training revolution - a revolution that continues to this very day.
Dinosaur Training takes the best of everything and combines it into a unified whole. And it gives it to you in one book - in a simple, systematic, straightforward system that you can modify to fit your particular goals, needs, interests and equipment.

Overview[ edit ] Dinosaur training positions itself in opposition to aerobics exercise culture and to bodybuilding and other training methods geared towards cosmetic purposes. It stresses intensity, hard work, functional strength, power, endurance and mental toughness. Dinosaur training methodologies have been disseminated through the training manuals written by Brooks D. Historical lifters like Peary Rader and various late 19th-century and early 20th-century strongmen and physical culture proponents such as Eugen Sandow are regarded as being inspiration of dinosaur training styles. It offered simple yet effective routines, which were in stark contrast to complex routines offered by many authors within the fitness industry.
Dinosaur Training has been used by top strength coaches at major colleges and universities - and by NFL strength coaches. One head coach for an NFL team was so impressed with the book - and with its success-oriented philosophy - that he made it mandatory reading for every single player on the entire team.
