Seriously guys while the name is funny like someone posted earlier it is a way of thinking and training with untraditional equiptment, unstable loads etc. Through training in this manner, for example doing keg lifts and sandbag presses, thickbar benchpress training with a two inch barbell, thick handle heavy dumbell lifts I have gained strength that I am truly amazed with...Although it will not change the world I was just saying it changed the way I will train from now on.....

Oh there's definitely merit in training heavy with some unconventional equipment; it's a great way to discover something new. I'm always up for anyone trying something new, especially something intense.

If you go to the Power & Bulk forum, u will see that Brooks was trying to make a point....that anyone can advertise bull**** about new training techniques, especially a well known strength training author, and people will believe it....Originally Posted by miked512
Brooks actually had people prepared to pre-order or actually sent hm money I believe!

I don't see a point in dismissing Dinosaur training because it's different or it's uncommon name - it's fun to do for many and can give lifters a strong strength base while letting them do stuff outside of the gym. I also second the recommendation to check out P&B - but Brooks Kubik isn't so highly respected there, at least from my reading.

I want to do it just so when people ask me about my training I can tell them I do Dinosaur Training. Then they will be like WTF?!

That beats the hell out of telling them you are "penguin training" ...you'd have to walk to the nearest ocean for food, come back to the gym and puke into your workout partners mouth. Meanwhile your workout partner would have to do every excercise without a spotter while holding an egg between his feet.Originally Posted by Boss_K

Dinosaur training by Brooks Kubik is the greatest weight training book ever so far. The information, the history and his writing style make that book great. He says he didnt invent Dino Training. Dino training was invented by Arthur Saxon, Paul Anderson, Bruno Samartino, Bradley Steiner, John McCallum, Peary Rader, Bob Hoffman, Reg Park, Dr Ken Listner, Bob Peoples,
Vic Boff, George Hackensmidt, Harry Paschall etc etc.
Charles Poliquin once wrote that he felt his clients should use Dino Training principles if he is not around to train them.
All it is is lifting heavy and getting stronger on Squats, Overhead pressing, rows, cleans, snatches, jerks, bent presses, using thick handled barbells and dumbells, using odd objects, doing 20 rep breathing squat routines, using 5x5, using singles, partials. How can anyone say this aint the way to train.
Yeah a competitive bodybuilder needs alot more isolation work I guess. but other than them, this is the way the rest of us should be training.

Is this Brooks? You avater is him, correct?Originally Posted by DinoTrainer
Well I think guys like Brooks have a point. This goes back the B's post in the anabolics section. People should find better ways to train and eat. Period. I see so many guys doing 5sets of bench, 5 sets of incline, 5 sets of decline, and then 4 sets of Cable crossovers. And then they eat 2100cals a day. And they wonder why they can't break 160lbs.
They need to focus on compond lifts and eating a good amount of food. And lastly DON"T OVER TRAIN.

No, it isnt a bunch of powerlifting routines thrown into one. dinosaur training is powerlifting, olympic lifting, strongman training, combat conditioning, kettlebell lifting, heavy hard grip work, etc. Dinosaur training is an title Brooks coined for these types of training. Randall Strossens Milo magazine is all about dino training, well before Brooks came out with his book.Originally Posted by guyfromkop2
All I can say is read the book and you'll understand that he isnt taking credit for inventing any new way of training. He pays respect back to those hard, strong old school guys that came up with dino training.
The book isnt expensive at all, $20. Even if you dont decide to train with the routines in the book, I think everyone serious into lifting weights would appreciate this book.

this is a great book!
let me say that I haven't followed one actual "routine" in this book, (I'm not big on follwoing routines anyway), I just got ideas from it.
this was one of the first books I read that opened my mind about what exercise really is, (only the first) there are others that opened it even more.
this book is very good for a drug-free trainee, this book may have several powerlifting routines combined into one, (like 5x5,singles,and rack work) but it also gets into detail about other lost exercises and talks about the old-time strongmen and gets into some odd grip training, and is very motivating, witch is top notch even if one can find most of the routines on the net.
it was one of the first books to actaully teach me how to get strong, and if your a thinker and look deep into it, one can realise what this type of training can do for longivity, training isn't just about muscle.
this book is a great start...........my review coming from a non-anabolic mind.
P.S. I don't even own a copy, I borrowed one

The name Dinosaur Training is no worse then DC (Dog Crap) training. In case you're not aware of the DC system, I'm not being an @$$hole, there really is a system called Dog Crap.
I'm weary of statements like, ôSome of you will literally see overnight changes in your physical development." Unless you cut off an arm, thats not a plausible statement. It sounds too much like a Muscletech add to me, but apparently the DT system is reinvigorating a lot of people's desire to exercise, and that sounds good to me. I love traditional lifting, but that's just me.
I've read a lot of positive responses about DT training. Its not for me, but big ups to people that get re-inspired to be active hard for me to hate on that.

anyone who knocks dino training is a p**SY. a wasp waist man boob pumped bicep pencil neck wuss. I love lifting weights but stuff like pumping up arms and squating 100lbs is useless to a dino trainer. we train for strength and power,we end up looking a little rougher than you Marky Mark/Brad Pitt sissies and our women love it. Plus if it came down to having to lift a car or whatever off somebody I could do it. could you?
