If you want to build muscle, lose fat, and look great as quickly as possible without steroids, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements...then you want to read this book.
Here's the deal:
Building muscle and burning fat isn't nearly as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe.
You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars per month on the worthless workout supplements that steroid-fueled bodybuilders “swear by.”
You don't need to constantly change up your weightlifting exercises to build muscle mass. Muscle building is much simpler than that.
You don't need to spend a couple of hours every day doing tons of weight training sets, supersets, drop sets, etc. In fact, this is a great way to get nowhere.
You don't need to grind out hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and get a six-pack. You probably don’t have to do ANY cardio, actually.
You don't need "clean eating" to get ripped and you don't need to avoid "cheat" foods. Flexible dieting is the real “secret” of effective bodybuilding nutrition.
Those are just a few of the harmful myths that keep guys like you from ever achieving the ripped, muscular, strong, and healthy bodies you truly desire.
And in this book you're going to learn something most people will never know...
The exact muscle building nutrition and training methods that make putting on 10 to 15 pounds of quality lean mass a breeze...and it only takes a few months.
This book reveals things like...
The 7 biggest muscle building mistakes that keep guys small, weak, and frustrated.
How to lose fat and build muscle eating all the foods you love...without ever feeling starved, deprived, or like you're "on a diet."
An all-in-one bodybuilding routine that will give you a big, full chest…a wide, tapered back…bulging arms…and thick, powerful legs...in just 3 to 6 hours of exercise per week...doing weight training workouts that you actually look forward to.
A no-BS guide to bodybuilding supplements that will save you from wasting THOUSANDS of dollars each year on bunk science and marketing hype.
How to master the "inner game" of fitness and develop the self-discipline you need to build the body of your dreams. If you like bodybuilding motivation, this is for you!
What to eat before and after your workouts to build muscle fast. It’s the “little” things like this that make bodybuilding diet plans maximally effective.
How to burn fat and build lean muscle while still indulging in the "cheat" foods that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream.
And a whole lot more!
Imagine...just 12 weeks from now...being constantly complimented on how great you look and asked how the heck you’re doing it...
Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day...
The bottom line is you CAN achieve that "Hollywood hunk" body without having your life revolve around it.

What does it mean to be a man? Terry Crews, TV’s iconic “Old Spice Guy” and co-star of the hit Golden Globe Award–winning series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has spent decades seeking the answer to that question. In Manhood, he shares what he’s learned, telling the amazing story of his rise to fame and offering straight-talking advice for men and the women who love them.
A self-described “super-driven superstar alpha male,” Terry Crews embodies the manly ideal for millions worldwide. But as he looks back on his difficult childhood and shares hard-learned lessons from the many humbling experiences he endured to get where he is today, he shows how his own conception of manhood is constantly evolving.
Crews offers up a lively, clear-eyed account of the ups and downs of his twenty-five-year marriage, revealing the relationship secrets that have kept it going—and the one dark secret that nearly tore it apart. Along the way, he shares his evolving appreciation for looking good, staying fit, and getting it done for the people you love.
Being a man is about more than keeping your core strong. It’s about keeping your core values stronger. With insightful observations on spirituality, work, and family, Terry Crews shows men how to face their inner demons, seek forgiveness from those they’ve wronged, and tear down the walls that prevent them from forging meaningful relationships with others.
From the NFL gridiron to the Hollywood backlot, Terry Crews has survived it all with his sense of humor—and his marriage—intact. In Manhood he shows men everywhere that real strength is not measured in muscle mass—unless that muscle is the heart.

As the demand for Special Operations military forces has grown over the last decade, elite trainer Mark Lauren has been at the front lines of preparing nearly one thousand soldiers, getting them lean and strong in record time. Now, for regular Joes and Janes, he shares the secret to his amazingly effective regimen—simple exercises that require nothing more than the resistance of your own bodyweight to help you reach the pinnacle of fitness and look better than ever before.
Armed with Mark Lauren’s motivation techniques, expert training, and nutrition advice, you’ll see rapid results by working out just thirty minutes a day, four times a week—whether in your living room, yard, garage, hotel room, or office. Lauren’s exercises build more metabolism-enhancing muscle than weightlifting, burn more fat than aerobics, and are safer than both, since bodyweight exercises develop balance and stability and therefore help prevent injuries. Choose your workout level—Basic, 1st Class, Master Class,and Chief Class—and get started, following the clear instructions for 125 exercises that work every muscle from your neck to your ankles. Forget about gym memberships, free weights, and infomercial contraptions. They are all poor substitutes for the world’s most advanced fitness machine, the one thing you are never without: your own body.

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

Twenty years of experience treating men and their families has convinced psychotherapist Terrence Real that depression is a silent epidemic in men—that men hide their condition from family, friends, and themselves to avoid the stigma of depression’s “un-manliness.” Problems that we think of as typically male—difficulty with intimacy, workaholism, alcoholism, abusive behavior, and rage—are really attempts to escape depression. And these escape attempts only hurt the people men love and pass their condition on to their children.
This groundbreaking book is the “pathway out of darkness” that these men and their families seek. Real reveals how men can unearth their pain, heal themselves, restore relationships, and break the legacy of abuse. He mixes penetrating analysis with compelling tales of his patients and even his own experiences with depression as the son of a violent, depressed father and the father of two young sons.
Testosterone is the most crucial hormone in the male body--and every man's T levels begin a slow, steady decline as he ages. The result? Loss of strength and muscle mass. Poor sugar metabolism. Increased body fat, especially around the waist. Loss of T also affects red blood cell production, vitality, bone density, mental acuity, and sex drive. In short: It slowly chops a man down.
Testosterone Transformation helps a man produce higher levels of T and reverse the downward spiral. By eating the right foods and adopting a new exercise approach, any man at any age can transform his life by starting a positive chain reaction: Raise T levels through the strategies in this book, improve workouts, get stronger, improve workouts even more, get even stronger, and enable the body to use muscle to process sugar--instead of storing it as fat.
Testosterone Transformation is a life-changer: a serious exercise and strategic diet plan that uses the science of a man's own body to help him recharge his sex drive, increase vitality, and reduce health risks across the board.
If you have tried every diet and are still struggling with your weight, the real culprit may be insulin resistance. When you have more glucose than your body needs, your body responds by producing more insulin to stabilize your blood sugar level and store the excess glucose as fat. In The Insulin-Resistance Diet, Cheryle R. Hart and Mary Kay Grossman show you how to control insulin resistance and lose weight without sacrificing all of your favorite foods.
Overcome insulin resistance and lose weight with:The exclusive Link-and-Balance Eating Method, which balances carbs with the right amount of protein at the right time for maximum weight loss Self-tests to determine your insulin resistance and check your progress with linking and balancing Real-world strategies for eating at home and out on the town Easy-to-make, tasty recipes and livable meal plans
If you are, say, a 220-pound man who wants to become a muscular 180-pounder, you then use The Lean Muscle Diet's formula to eat and train to sustain a 180-pound body. The transformation begins immediately, and the results last for life.
Lou Schuler, who has sold more than one million copies of his fitness books worldwide, and Alan Aragon, nutrition advisor to Men's Health, have created an eating and "metabolically expensive" exercise plan designed to melt fat while building muscle. The best part? The plan allows readers to eat their favorite foods, no matter how decadent. With full support from Men's Health, The Lean Muscle Diet delivers a simple--and simply sustainable--body transformation plan anyone can use.

Lose the Belly Fat, Become Heart-Healthy, and Look and Feel Years Younger
For most men, having six-pack abs seems like an impossible goal. But look no further than Dr. Jeffry Life, who transformed himself from an overweight fifty-nine-year-old with low sex drive, sky-high cholesterol levels, and borderline diabetes into the picture of health. Best of all, he’s been able to maintain his physique for more than fifteen years. His journey has inspired thousands of men across the country. Now it’s your turn to follow his path toward total wellness.
The bestselling author of The Life Plan and the popular face of anti-aging medicine has one simple message: Any man can lose significant amounts of weight and keep those pounds off permanently. Well-defined abs are the hallmark of good health, and The Life Plan Diet will show you how to lose the belly fat so that you can not only find your six-pack, but more important, lower your risk of heart disease, step off the blood-sugar roller coaster, and ignite your sex life.
This groundbreaking diet book offers a four-tiered approach to losing weight without strenuous exercise. It features:
• a jump-start diet that puts men on the right track with quick results
• a basic health diet that optimizes blood sugar levels by eating plenty of the right foods all day long
• a fat-burning diet that powers through weight loss plateaus to let you continue to lose weight week after week
• a heart-health diet for men who want to lose weight and reverse heart disease
This simple program doesn’t require expensive equipment or difficult recipes with hard-to-find ingredients. Instead, it focuses on teaching men over fifty how to increase metabolism and shed real pounds. Packed with easy everyday menus and rules for eating out, tips for enhancing muscle mass and bone strength, foods that naturally increase testosterone levels and growth hormone, and good food habits for optimizing brain function, The Life Plan Diet is a proven and wildly successful method to help men over fifty lose weight and remain vital.
By controlling the levels of glycogen (carbs stored in our muscles) through this unique diet, and learning to exercise in the carb-burning zone (the secret to making workouts shorter and more effective) anyone can shed fat and build muscle--and it takes only 90 minutes of exercise a week.
It’s very likely that you have seen Dr. Jeffry Life before. And if you have, you might have thought, How can this seventy-two-year-old doctor have the body of a thirty-year-old? But his photos are very real, and you can look just as good as he does when you take control of your health.
Back in 1998, Dr. Life was sixty years old and a stereotype of the aging man: he was overweight with a noticeable gut and little muscle tone. Even though his own medical practice was thriving, and he thought he knew everything about men’s health, the facts proved differently. His libido was low, which was ruining his self-esteem. He felt tired all the time, yet no amount of sleep made him feel well rested. It wasn’t until a cardiologist read him the riot act that he even considered that change was possible. He then decided to make critical adjustments to his diet and lifestyle, and the results have been nothing short of astounding.
More than a decade later, Dr. Life continues to look and feel younger than ever. He knows that if he can make these changes to his body, his sex life, and his health, any man can. In this revolutionary book, he’ll show how you can turn around yourhealth by using the very same program he success-fully created and follows to this day.
The Life Plan introduces a healthy aging lifestyle that any man can master, no matter what shape he may be in. It offers:
• An action-packed exercise program designed to make working out entertaining as well as improve heart health and increase muscle mass. His program taps into various disciplines—cardio workouts, resistance training, balance and core conditioning, martial arts, and Pilates.
• An easy diet, featuring delicious choices, that any man can follow, along with rules for eating out and sample recipes for the single or married guy.
• A simple nutrient supplement regimen highlighting the top supplements men may need to halt, and even reverse, the aging process.
• A prudent guide to male hormone replacement therapies based on the most up-to-date research.
• Lessons on how to get your doctor to provide the care you deserve.
• How to sidestep America’s disease-based approach to medicine and fuel optimal health.
• And much more.
By following this program you can once again enjoy an active, clear-headed, sexually satisfying, vigorous, and health-filled life, while avoiding late-onset diabetes, heart disease, and other common illnesses and complaints of aging. For men seeking to make over their bodies and turn back the clock, The Life Plan delivers the keys to a fitter body, a stronger immune system, and a richer, fuller life.

Throughout much of their lives, men have a weight advantage over women, whose bodies are naturally designed to hold more fat. Fair or not, men’s hormonal make-up, muscle mass, and unique metabolic profile make it easier for them to stay lean. But certain conditions can overturn that gift—the passage of time, the pressure of work and others, the wrong ‘fuel’—and lead men to a hormonal state that more closely resembles, well, women.
If you have a beer gut, fatty pecs and are ‘softer’ then you used to be, especially where it counts the most, keep reading. Help is in your hands. Designed to restore optimal testosterone levels, eliminate dangerous visceral fat and improve sexual performance, REFUEL™ gives you the rules, skills, and step-by-step plan needed to optimize the male biochemical blueprint, including:

Erectile dysfunction (ED) has become a common problem for men these days. Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, tobacco use, alcohol or drug abuse, prescription medications, prostate cancer, or injuries or surgeries of the pelvic or the spinal area are only some of the physical causes of this condition. It can also occur due to depression, relationship problems, and excessive stress.The problem is a complex one and can cause relationship problems among couples and lead to low self-confidence and depression in men, which further worsens the problem of erectile dysfunction.
When you consult a physician for this issue, they may prescribe medications such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, and Stendra. These drugs work by enhancing the effect of nitric oxide, a chemical produced by your body. Nitric oxide will relax the muscles in the penis, thus improving blood flow and helping you get an erection.
While these drugs will get you the desired results, they shouldn't be taken on a continuous basis. Like all medications they also have side-effects, such as stomach upset, backache, headaches, change in vision, nasal congestion and flushing. This is why it is not recommended that you take these drugs on a continuous basis.
There are natural ways of curing erectile dysfunction. This basically means changing your diet, letting go off harmful habits, exercising, and utilizing the power of herbs and supplements.
If you are wondering how to do it, this guide is just right for you. It will help you understand erectile dysfunction and overcome your erection issues with the help of diet, exercises, and herbal remedies. Let's get started!

The kettlebell is a very simple and incredibly effective piece of equipment. Loved by athletes, non-athletes, and personal trainers alike, the exercises in this book are proven to not only build strength, but also muscular endurance.
