Présentation de l'éditeur

If you’ve ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn’t—what’s scientifically true and what’s false—when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.

Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?

“I have bad genetics—I’m a ‘hardgainer.’”

“You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack.”

“When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the ‘fat burning zone.’”

“You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat.”

“Don’t eat at night if you want to lose weight.”

“Steroids make you look great.”

“I’m overweight because I have a slow metabolism.”

You’ve probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people’s fitness ambitions. There are many, many more.

Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled “gurus,” it’s becoming harder and harder to get in shape.

Muscle Myths was written to debunk the most commonplace and harmful gimmicks, fads, myths, and misinformation in the health and fitness industry.

Here are just some of the things you’ll learn in this book:

Why you don’t have to cut carbohydrates (carbs), or fat, or eat weird combinations of food to lose weight.

The truth about supplements and why 99% of them are a complete waste of money (and the few that are actually scientifically proven to work).

What it actually takes to “tone up”—and it’s not doing “shaping exercises” (these don’t exist) or doing a million reps every workout.

Why women shouldn’t be training differently than men if they want the lean, toned, and sexy type of body that they see in magazines, TV shows, and movies.

The scientific secrets of getting a six-pack. Forget 6-minute gimmicks, doing endless crunches, and hours of grueling cardio—it’s actually pretty easy when you know what you’re doing.

Training and diet methods that will completely shatter any perceived “genetic barriers” that you think are holding you back from building a muscular, lean physique that you love.

The proper way to stretch so you don’t sap your strength and risk injury. (Most people do this wrong and suffer the consequences without even realizing it.)

And much more.

With the information in this book, you can save the money, time, and frustration of buying into misleading diet plans and products that promise unattainable results. You can become your own personal trainer and start getting real results with your diet and exercise.

Scroll up and click the “Buy” button now to learn the no-BS truth of how to look good and feel great without having to endure tortuously restrictive diets or long, grueling exercise routines.

I have been lifting weights for almost 8 years now. And I have read lots of books and articles. I was hoping to find something new but nothing much for me.
It might be a good start for a beginner though.
I like the scientific backup and references the writer uses to support his knowledge so thumbs up for that.
The writer has also a nice sarcasm and sense of humor he will make you smile with some of his comments.

HASH(0x920da12c) étoiles sur 5 This Is THE Book! There's No Fluff Here, This Is What Works! 15 mai 2013

I got this book because of the great reviews and description. This book gave me the map to do what I had to, I just had to walk the path. I lost 18 lbs and gained 30 lbs. On my chest press and 20 lbs. On my bicept curls. Not only that but I look better then I did when I ran 5miles a day in cross country in high school. This books material is not a "diet" its a lifestyle change that has become second nature.

This book is incredible. I purchased this and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger and read them both in 2 days. If you are a gym rat that has hit a plateau or if you are new to the gym and want to get the best out of your workouts I suggest getting both of these books. I hit a plateau and could not improve any lifts for a while and had no idea why. I was overtraining my body like crazy. I read these books and followed them and my lifts all went up at least 20lbs in 3 weeks.

HASH(0x9489deac) étoiles sur 5 Good, but not Bulletproof 31 janvier 2015
Par Jay - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I picked this up in audiobook form shortly after listening to Dave Asprey's "Bulletproof Diet". It is a good book and I don't regret getting it at all. However, I think there is more information now than what was available when this book was written.

The author, Michael Matthews, is certainly a "calorie is a calorie" guy. And I will admit on some level that he may be right. There is new research now that certain foods heavily influence your gut bacteria, and that the type of gut bacteria you have has a lot to do with your weight.

Actual scientific studies, published in Nature, show that the obese patients in the study (about 80% of the group studied) had lower counts of gut microbiota. These people were more obese than those with higher counts of gut bacteria. They also tended to put on weight faster.

If a calorie is just a calorie, then nobody in the groups should have put on weight unless they were eating more calories than they were burning. So it seems that there is more to it than just calories in vs. energy expended. Hmmm.

I highly recommend getting a copy of Dave Asprey's "Bulletproof Diet" and "Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization," by John J. Ratey and Richard Manning. Both books go beyond the calorie. The types of food you eat do influence gut bacteria, and these books explain that very well.

I do like that Matthews isn't afraid to count calories. I guess I understand, but I don't know why everyone is so against counting calories. Even if there is more to it than calories, in 2014 I dropped 65 pounds, and I did so after joining MyFitnessPal and by eating a lot better. It is very possible to eat healthy, but still overeat. It was only by logging for a while on MFP that I was able to see exactly what was sabotaging me.

Also, I take issues with a few of his busted myths. For example: Myth #41: Eating a lot of protein is bad for your kidneys.

The one study he produced was hardly the be all and end all of the matter. High protein diets increase the amount of acid in your body. See the study, "Excess Dietary Protein Can Adversely Affect Bone1,2" by Uriel S. Barzel and Linda K. Massey. In it they note that the effects of dietary protein may be greater as we age: aging kidneys cannot generate ammonium ions and excrete hydrogen ions as well as young kidneys do. It also points out that when the body is challenged with a dietary acid load, "the kidneys excrete more acidic urine, and the organism also turns to the skeleton for additional buffer. " In other words, a high protein diet can leach calcium from the bones.

So he may technically be right that the study he produced didn't show any kidney damage from a high protein diet, there is plenty of evidence that a high protein diet may have negative effects over time.

The "Bulletproof Diet" is one of the few books I have read where the author actually understands the dangers of too much or too little protein. Yes, like Goldilocks, Asprey gets it just right, and gets my vote for a book that should be read along with Muscle Myths.

This book has a lot of good information, and while I don't agree with every bit of advice that the author says (e.g. "don't stretch before lifting weights" or that "high reps with low weight won't get you toned" both paraphrased), I do agree with most of it. I've been studying a lot of exercise and nutrition books recently, and I think that the author of this book does a good job of exposing a lot of nonsense about lifting weights.

Par Stacy - Publié sur

This is the 1st review I have ever written for anything I have EVER purchased on Amazon (& I've bought a lot of stuff)...I have spent over $3k on personal trainers over the last year... While I did loose 25lbs, I was still flabby. Feeling hopeless and not knowing WHAT to do, as I desperately want to create the body I have always dreamed of. I stumbled on Mike's books. I bought Thinner, Leaner Stronger 1st. It was the most informative, no nonsense, easy to read/understand book on fitness EVER!!! He lay's out a detailed plan of exactly how to get the body you want. I was so impressed with Thinner, Leaner, Stronger - I bought 2 more of his books (Muscle Myth & The Shredded Chef) and have recommended them to everyone I know. I am currently in my 4th week of the program and can visibly see the flab starting to go away. 2 apps that totally helped me are Myfitnesspal & FitnessBuddy... With Fitnessbudy you get detailed instructions on how to preform the exercises Mike recommends & also create a routine for each body part (or combined body parts) & log your progress. I even got a personal email from Mike himself answering questions I had. Seriously can't say enough good things about his books or his programs!!!
