Weightlifting is a Waste of Time

Availability: Ready to download

You’ve been lifting for a few years. When you take your shirt off, do you look like a professional athlete? Do you even look like you work out? Many fitness “experts” defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic? Fitness may be the most failed human endeavor, and you are about to see how e You’ve been lifting for a few years. When you take your shirt off, do you look like a professional athlete? Do you even look like you work out? Many fitness “experts” defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic? Fitness may be the most failed human endeavor, and you are about to see how exercise science has missed some obvious principles that when enacted will turn you into the superhuman you always wanted to be. In Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time, Dr. John Jaquish and Henry Alkire explore the science that supports this argument and lay out a superior strength training approach that has been seen to put 20 pounds of muscle on drug-free, experienced lifters (not beginners) in six months.

    I've never been clickbaited by an entire book before. "Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time"... so buy my invention and lift weights? To be fair, the author's invention is not weight lifting, its resistance bands... which is similar enough I feel cheated. Instead of lifting weights (resistance by gravity), buy his product to stretch resistance bands (resistance by latex). Dr. Jaquish invented a resistance band with a standing base and wants to sell is for over $500. To be fair, the set-up looks legit I've never been clickbaited by an entire book before.

Instead of lifting weights (resistance by gravity), buy his product to stretch resistance bands (resistance by latex). Dr. Jaquish invented a resistance band with a standing base and wants to sell is for over $500. To be fair, the set-up looks legit. So that's a good start, but I haven't used it and can't review it. I have many small problems with this book, for the pedantic, arrogant tone to the glossing over of scientific studies... but overall, I get the good Doctor's message. Lifting weights has pros and cons, and resistance bands give most of the pros with few of the cons. His invention removes some more of the cons to bring a safer, more complete workout. I'm not against this, I just don't appreciate the sales pitch. This is as bad as Tom Brady's bullshit book about his products. Jaquish has a decent-looking product for sale... also, a revolutionary fermented protein... also, a coffee replacement because pre-workout coffee is for chumps. Also, he'll do your taxes and plan your vacation. While casually, nay, almost accidentally, gaining 30 lbs of muscle in a year as an intermediate lifter. So you better buy all of them. Also, eat a carnivore OMAD diet, or regular Keto if you're a casual. I can't say much about his workout plan. As someone with a history of lifting weights and knows some things about biology, Jaquish's ideas looks acceptable. For someone looking to get healthier (add muscle, be strong to be healthy and move well), this book isn't a bad place to start. Nothing Jaquish says stands out as wrong or dangerous. So he's already better that fitness IG. Just remember to buy everything at his website. *NetGalley sent me a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    الكتاب يحوي على تضارب مصالح كبير فالمؤلف يتحدث عن طريقة لبناء العضلات باستخدام المطاطات (بدلا من الأوزان)، ويتحدث طوال الكتاب عن استخدام جهازه هو الذي يبيعه. علما أن جهازه يباع بسعر ٥٠٠ دولار، فيما بالإمكان الحصول على نفس المنتج من شركات أخرى بسعر أقل من ١٠٠ دولار من!!ـ وبما أن الكتاب يحوي منتجا للمؤلف، فهذا تضارب مصالح كبير بين المحتوى العلمي للكتاب، وبين المنفعة الشخصية للمؤلف من بيع الجهاز. بناء على ذلك لن أقيم الكتاب الآن، وإنما سأقوم بذلك بعد تجربة الطريقة باستخدام الأجهزة الأرخص

    I was already a user of Jaquish's X3Bar and even interviewed him on my podcast, Real Men Feel, ( https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast... ) before reading this, so not a big surprise that I'm all in. This book busts so many myths around fitness and workouts. It also explained my life long experiences with gyms, I've gotten better strength and fitness results in just a few months of using the information laid out in this book than many years with the traditional free weight and cardio routine.

Weightlifting is indeed a waste a time. This book is backed up by a lot of research and is really guided by science, not opinion. If you've been frustrated by your results with following the advice of the average gym rat or personal trainer, read this book.

    This is a data driven guide that challenges traditional weight lifting. It's very interesting. At times a little heavy with data, but other times very engaging and helpful. Combine this book with the suggested way of eating will change your outlook and stop the diets fads and create a lifelong journey of health. Thanks for the ARC, NetGAlley!
