    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.

    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. .

    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

The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw

    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.

    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..."

    He's got a new one called "dinosaur bodyweight training".

    Now, you can become a dinosaur with nothing but bodyweight exercises. :-)

    Thumbs up


    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....

    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.

    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.

    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?
    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.

    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.
    honestly it sounds like a bunch of powerlifting routines thrown into one

    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, I am not Brooks kubik.
