I'm going to start a new thing called Alien Bobsled Training. It's like nothing the world has ever seen. Stay tuned fellas!
LMAO, i'm in.
I just got the book in the mail today.. plus 140lbs caps of crunch (not Cap'n Crunch )
It's pretty huge over at irontrybe, geared towards functional strength/strongman training..
From the back cover:
Dinosaur Training: Lost secrets of Strength & development.
"...focuses on real world strength training..becoming more powerful..building functional muscle..strengthening the tendons and ligaments..thick bar training..heavy weights..powerrack work..heavy grip work..sandbag & barrel lifting..heavy support work..."
Good luck, Y2J.
500 of these will get you buff.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

Guys, I've put on 3 pounds in the last thirty seconds with my Alien Bobsled Training. You guys are wasting your time with this dinosaur mess. Aliens are "the new" dinosaurs...
LOL...I think that's a good T-shirt...or at least a sig.Originally Posted by TheCrownedOne
Seriously though guys, for beginner strongman, it's supposed to be an excellent primer.
I came across it while frequenting irontrybe.com - which is primarily a strongman site..
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
I don't know how Beelz does it.
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.
honestly it sounds like a bunch of powerlifting routines thrown into oneOriginally Posted by DinoTrainer
No, I am not Brooks kubik.Originally Posted by LCSULLA
