The Complete Keys to Progress by John McCallum –

I’ve never understood the popularity of these articles but I got the book from a friend to see if reading them through “helps”. Find out his thoughts and recommendations on page It’s a “get in there and bust your butt” kind of training book. McCallum also visited and corresponded with many of the most famous weight progtess of the time in order to find out the real scoop about how they trained.


Funny how basic, sensible, result producing training information never goes out of style.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Simple whey protein may not give you the gains that he promises his “big” drink will, but it will help you gain weight and you won’t end up financing your doctor’s new Mercedes either. He’s also right that focusing on the heavy, multi-muscle group exercises stimulates real gains better than anything else. Refresh and try again.

How long should your workouts last? You could instantly pick up training tips that you could apply to your own training. No mention of steroids, some of the nutritional advice doesn’t hold up, but the workout advice is solid, old school stuff. Occasionally some good advice. That is perfectly acceptable. His stories keep you interested, keep you learning, and keep you coming back for “just one more”. If you’ve done “Rippetoes”, done 5X5, and now are looking to focus more on bodybuilding rather than pure strength, have a look and try them out.

An excellent book on how to get really strong.

Josh I rated it liked it Jan 11, Training not going so great? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. McCallum’s texts are always entertaining to read. Not many people know about Hip Belt Squats but you can read all about them on pages … that includes details on setup, how to incorporate them and the other exercises that should be performed with them.

I am judging the book because it reads like a series of 6th grade level conversations which is really what each chapter is–dialogues with no context whatsoever. A fantastic storyteller to boot. These are classic pre-steroid era routines, mostly full body, aimed at natural bodybuilders. Seriously folks, anyone interested in intermediate and advanced full body routines for naturals, geared more to bodybuilding than strength needs to start here.
