You should buy it for me, it would be a nice birthday gift.
Ohh yay its midnight, happy birthday to me!!!
seriously though, it looks like an intresting read
I'll probably eventually pick it up. All Lyle's books are awesome reads, although some disagree seeing he isn't huge, move big weights and didn't practice what he preached.
Yeah, I am. Looks like a good read, just like the rest of his books.

Lyle was/is training to be an olympic speed skater.
He also competed in powerlifting in the past, I believe.

I can tell a big guy how to get bigger - eat lots of stuff, and lift lots of heavy things.
Probably next month. I already bought two books, and have plenty of other stuff to read in the meantime.
Complication breeds desperation.
I am going to buy that now that i know it exists!

Read the book written by George Hackenschmidt. I forget the name of it. I'll look for it and try to post the link. Back in 1907 he wrote stuff that people seem to think is groundbreaking today. Pencil-neck geeks are cool, because I was one. But, they have no place in weightlifting.
I've already ordered it.
The ignorance displayed in this thread is why I only come here to kill time at work. Why make things complicated by reading a book when you are a moron....I agree completely.
That's a picture of Scarlett Johansson.
The reason I keep things so simple, is because most of us on here, if not all of us, are not even close to a level where absolute nutrtional precision is needed. It's like starting a rock band and not having a bass, drums, or lead guitar. You all want to use the bells and whistles before you have the foundation set in motion. Bells and whistles sound pretty stupid without the bass, drums, and lead guitar. But, I guess that's too easy to understand so we should over-complicate it some more.
Is that all you do is strike up bull**** in every thread? Is this going to turn into pages of you asking what everyone's experience is and telling them how awesome you are while simultaneously giving utterly stupid examples about rock bands to try and restate the same thing you're saying in almost every single thread? Could you perhaps start up your own thread stating your experiences and actually adding something to this community? You're an experienced powerlifter. Start stemming from there, but quit saying the same **** about you and your accomplishments and how everyone is inferior to you. It's quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever seen hit these forums in years.
All Slim did was ask who's going to get the book stated in the original post. What did you do? You blew the train off its track with the nuke known as your ego.
What's your opinion on Lyle, Rhodes?
You seem to be the only one who has issues with everyone's diet. You're not adding anything. We already know eating big makes you big. There's stickies with diets dedicated to eating a bunch of food to get big. I'm sure you'll stumble upon it if you spent your time searching this site. You'll realize you've said nothing new that we don't already know. No wait, I'll just post a link because I know you won't search ~> The Big Boy's Menu PlanThe only ignorance being displayed is by those that make eating out to be more than it is.
Gee, your "advice" seems pretty much like...nothing new? So quit saying the crap we already know in every thread. The motto here for years has seemed to be "eat big and lift heavy". Where does your advice fit into this that provides anything groundbreaking? Hint: nowhere.
You're so clueless that you didn't even realize that his statement was sarcastic bait for you to respond...and you took the bait like the predictable fish you are. He was kidding. It's like all you're doing is finding posts to say the same thing over and over again. Is that all you do here?I agree. Little people can't tell big people how to get big. Depending on how thick the book is, I might be able to use it when I board press.
