Product description

Product Description

If you’ve ever felt lost in the sea of contradictory training and diet advice out there and you just want to know once and for all what works and what doesn’t—what’s scientifically true and what’s false—when it comes to building muscle and getting ripped, then you need to read this book.

Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?

“I have bad genetics—I’m a ‘hardgainer.’”

“You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack.”

“When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the ‘fat burning zone.’”

“You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before your body starts burning fat.”

“Don’t eat at night if you want to lose weight.”

“Steroids make you look great.”

“I’m overweight because I have a slow metabolism.”

You’ve probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people’s fitness ambitions. There are many, many more.

Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled “gurus,” it’s becoming harder and harder to get in shape.

Muscle Myths was written to debunk the most commonplace and harmful gimmicks, fads, myths, and misinformation in the health and fitness industry.

Here are just some of the things you’ll learn in this book:

Why you don’t have to cut carbohydrates (carbs), or fat, or eat weird combinations of food to lose weight.

The truth about supplements and why 99% of them are a complete waste of money (and the few that are actually scientifically proven to work).

What it actually takes to “tone up”—and it’s not doing “shaping exercises” (these don’t exist) or doing a million reps every workout.

Why women shouldn’t be training differently than men if they want the lean, toned, and sexy type of body that they see in magazines, TV shows, and movies.

The scientific secrets of getting a six-pack. Forget 6-minute gimmicks, doing endless crunches, and hours of grueling cardio—it’s actually pretty easy when you know what you’re doing.

Training and diet methods that will completely shatter any perceived “genetic barriers” that you think are holding you back from building a muscular, lean physique that you love.

The proper way to stretch so you don’t sap your strength and risk injury. (Most people do this wrong and suffer the consequences without even realizing it.)

And much more.

With the information in this book, you can save the money, time, and frustration of buying into misleading diet plans and products that promise unattainable results. You can become your own personal trainer and start getting real results with your diet and exercise.

Scroll up and click the “Buy” button now to learn the no-BS truth of how to look good and feel great without having to endure tortuously restrictive diets or long, grueling exercise routines.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is THE Book! There's No Fluff Here, This Is What Works! 16 May 2013
By Michael Berger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got this book because of the great reviews and description. This book gave me the map to do what I had to, I just had to walk the path. I lost 18 lbs and gained 30 lbs. On my chest press and 20 lbs. On my bicept curls. Not only that but I look better then I did when I ran 5miles a day in cross country in high school. This books material is not a "diet" its a lifestyle change that has become second nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Books I've Found in 40 Years 22 April 2017
By Billn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been doing resistance training with free weights for over 40 years and these are the best books I've found. Yes, before the Internet and in fact, before there were Nutrition Labels on food. Talk about driving blind.

In addition to this book, I've purchased all the books by Michael Matthews here on Amazon.

* I like his writing style.
* I especially like the fact Michael provides a reference source within all the topics. I feel this gives him HUGE credibility and know he isn't just
throwing around his personal opinions
* Michael provides invaluable support on his blog, provides recommendations to problems, and answers tons of questions personally. I don't know how he finds the time.

Cons: I wished Michael would work with Amazon to provide a discount when purchasing the same book in both paperback and Kindle. Yes I have several in both formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone confused with the plethora of advice out there... 19 March 2017
By Alli - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This guy knows what he's talking about, and proves it with legitimate scientific research and evidence. Anyone who is confused with the plethora of diet and fitness advice thrown around by trainers and magazines MUST read this book! He thoroughly covers everything from stretching to caloric intake, and has some wonderful resources for even more information. I've been athletic my whole life, and a gym manager for several years, and I have recommended this book to dozens of my members, who I continually see putting in a ton of effort without seeing the results they desire. I've already seen significant improvement since these loyal gym attendees have been following his suggestions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Book! 18 February 2014
By Stacy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the 1st review I have ever written for anything I have EVER purchased on Amazon (& I've bought a lot of stuff)...I have spent over $3k on personal trainers over the last year... While I did loose 25lbs, I was still flabby. Feeling hopeless and not knowing WHAT to do, as I desperately want to create the body I have always dreamed of. I stumbled on Mike's books. I bought Thinner, Leaner Stronger 1st. It was the most informative, no nonsense, easy to read/understand book on fitness EVER!!! He lay's out a detailed plan of exactly how to get the body you want. I was so impressed with Thinner, Leaner, Stronger - I bought 2 more of his books (Muscle Myth & The Shredded Chef) and have recommended them to everyone I know. I am currently in my 4th week of the program and can visibly see the flab starting to go away. 2 apps that totally helped me are Myfitnesspal & FitnessBuddy... With Fitnessbudy you get detailed instructions on how to preform the exercises Mike recommends & also create a routine for each body part (or combined body parts) & log your progress. I even got a personal email from Mike himself answering questions I had. Seriously can't say enough good things about his books or his programs!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mythbusters of the gym 13 August 2012
By Aaron - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is incredible. I purchased this and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger and read them both in 2 days. If you are a gym rat that has hit a plateau or if you are new to the gym and want to get the best out of your workouts I suggest getting both of these books. I hit a plateau and could not improve any lifts for a while and had no idea why. I was overtraining my body like crazy. I read these books and followed them and my lifts all went up at least 20lbs in 3 weeks.
