WHO'S DOING IT...I FELL LIKE I JUST DISCOVERED BODYBUILDING ALL OVER...I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN WASTEING MY TIME WITH TRADITIONAL ROUTINES ALL MY LIFE. AUTHOR BROOKS KUBIK
No caps please
Dang can't believe not one ever heard of this...or no one interested...
Explain this 'Dinosaur Training'
dinosaur training? i give the creator a F- for choosing that name whoever he/she is.
day 1: avoid t-rex
day 2: avoid chuck norris
day 3: day off
day 4: move large rock
day 5: avoid chuck norris
day 6: day off
day 7: day off
diet consists mainly of leaves and small animals, weather depending.
sounds similar to SERE training.
got a buddy who's a baseball player doing it, but I have no idea what it is.
Brooks Kubik is the author of the book Dinosaur Training, and it’s a great read. If you’re interested in reading about basic routines, singles training as well as odd object lifting etc, it’s for you. Brooks has a large following in the strength training community ie. Power & Bulk forum anyone? Brooks is heavily influenced by Bill Starr and old time strong men and lifters like Reg park and Doug Hepburn. .
well, never heard of it and i venture through the strength training community rather frequently. know any specifics? give an example of what a typical routine would look like. i'm just curious at this point.
Is it something akin to 'functional strength' training where you're rolling big tires around and lifting rocks rather than balanced weights?
That stuff is pretty cool - I threw haybales around and westled cows half my life though,now I like my 45 lb plates

and how is that revolutionary? according to the first post, this will change the face of the planet. pretty killer leg routine though.
just skimmed through the article, looks to be based off the big 3 with a few variations. instead of farmers walk, push a car in neutral for 50 yards?
eh, whatever gets your ass to the gym. from now on, i'm doing penguin training.
Not revolutionary at all. He’s one of the few strength training authors who says upfront that what he says is nothing new (as opposed to most strength training authors) and is all old stuff from the old timers. Lots of routines in his book, lots of 5x5 stuff, singles training in particular, keg lifting, bottom position squats and benches etc etc. it is worth a read…I got a copy a cpl of years ago. He also used to publish a newsletter which I have heaps of copies of that I got for free….lots of good stuff including articles from the 50’s and 60’s from the old York team, on Reg Park, Pat Casey, Doug Hepburn and the mighty Paul Anderson
Hey Beelzebub, u never been to Power & Bulk? Full of strongman competitors there, Olympic lifters etc. Old School Strength Training used to be the board where Brooks used to be…used to be lots of old time lifters there….but the place went dead for a while
But yeah I can tell ya, this guy made enough $$$ off his book and newsletters to have now quit his job as a high flying attorney, and he has had the support from strength trainers like Dr Ken Leistner, Bill Starr, Bob Whelan and others. I think he also set some US nationals bench records at some point. I saw a pic of him the other day, he’s about 50 now and he looks friggin amazing, cut up but as thick as with that look of power rather than bodybuilder look
nope, haven't been there, but may have to give it a gander.
bud, def check it out
got a link? it ain't showing up on google.
edit: nevermind, found it.

sniffy training is the way to go
Read a lot about it on Bob Wheelans site Naturalstrength.com
Aside from the odd objects etc it seems very much a philosphy, no supplements etc just big weights and big food, Some very good motivational stuff over there.
