Sliced Book Excerpt:

"An exhaustive job of researching and writing . . . "Sliced" has my highest recommendation." -- Lee Haney, seven-time IFBB Mr. Olympia "I almost wish I had the only available copy of "Sliced," because it would give me a definite edge on my competitors at the next Ms. Olympia competition!" -- Anja Langer, IFBB European Champion, Junior World Champion, 2nd/Ms. Olympia, 1988 In a sport where nutrition represents 50 percent of the formula for success, rising to 90 percent during those crucial weeks just prior to competition, bodybuilders--from beginners to seasoned professionals--look to the latest nutrition strategies to gain the winning edge. "Sliced" represents up-to-date, proven diet programs and scientific data for achieving maximum muscularity and superior definition. Bill Reynolds, bestselling author and editor in chief of Joe Weider's "Flex" magazine, has teamed up with Negrita Jayde, former Canadian Overall National Champion, to give readers detailed and authoritative guidelines on nutrition for bodybuilders. Topics include the role of nutrition in hyping the immune system and improving between-workouts recovery, the seven degrees of muscularity from basic off-season shape to super-ripped, tips for increasing the basal metabolic rate and thus burning off excess supplements. In addition to more than 130 recipes and a variety of meal plans, this book offers Jayde's personal nutrition-training program for attaining peak muscularity. Now that drug testing is standard in competition, bodybuilders will particularly value the chapter on ergogenics--achieving an anabolic effect naturally--all in all making "Sliced" state-of-the-art in every detail. Bill Reynolds is the editor in chief ofJoe Weider's "Flex." His 15 years of work and travel with all the champions has resulted in more than 2,000 magazine articles and dozens of books, including "Supercut" and "Joe Weider's Ultimate Bodybuilding." Negrita Jayde is a former Canadian Overall National Champion and author of numerous articles on the subject of nutrition.

Save time. Save money. Save heartache. This one-stop shop for self-improvement combines the art and science of over thirty years of Dr. Tina Thomas’ experience as a gestalt therapist to give you the tools to the “fire” of your personal problems rather than dealing with all the psychoanalytical “smoke.” Issues with work, goal achievement, anxiety, stress, depression, relationships?

You will learn how to change those mental maps so that, as far as your brain is concerned, you have an alternate past, which by default creates an alternate present and future, filled with liberating possibilities. Additionally, you will learn about the seven most misunderstood emotions and how to utilize them to your advantage. Finally, you will learn how to get your RAS in gear. The reticular activating system is a filter in the brain that, once activated, helps you to achieve your goals quickly and dynamically. More than an owner’s manual for your brain, The Ultimate Edge is a guidebook to more peace, passion, and power than you ever imagined!

Mr America Book Excerpt:

For most of the twentieth century, the “Mr. America” image epitomized muscular manhood. From humble beginnings in 1939 at a small gym in Schenectady, New York, the Mr. America Contest became the world’s premier bodybuilding event over the next thirty years. Rooted in ancient Greek virtues of health, fitness, beauty, and athleticism, it showcased some of the finest specimens of American masculinity. Interviewing nearly one hundred major figures in the physical culture movement (including twenty-five Mr. Americas) and incorporating copious printed and manuscript sources, John D. Fair has created the definitive study of this iconic phenomenon. Revealing the ways in which the contest provided a model of functional and fit manhood, Mr. America captures the event’s path to idealism and its slow descent into obscurity. As the 1960s marked a turbulent transition in American society—from the civil rights movement to the rise of feminism and increasing acceptance of homosexuality—Mr. America changed as well. Exploring the influence of other bodily displays, such as the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests and the Miss America Pageant, Fair focuses on commercialism, size obsession, and drugs that corrupted the competition’s original intent. Accessible and engaging, Mr. America is a compelling portrayal of the glory days of American muscle.

The People s Machine Book Excerpt:

California voters passed Proposition 13 in 1978. At the same time, a champion bodybuilder named Arnold Schwarzenegger was becoming a movie star. Over the past quarter century, the twin arts of direct democracy (through ballot initiatives designed to push the public to the polls on election day) and blockbuster moviemaking (through movies designed to push the public to the theaters on opening weekend) grew up together, at home in California. With the state's recall election in 2003, direct democracy and blockbuster movies officially merged. The result: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. In The People's Machine, political reporter Joe Mathews, who covered Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial campaign for the Los Angeles Times and who has subsequently broken many front page stories about him, traces the roots of both movie and political populism, how Schwarzenegger used these twin forces to win election and, especially, how he has used them to govern. "Let the people decide," said Governor Schwarzenegger after his inauguration. The People's Machine, through remarkable access and whip-smart analysis -- there is news in this book -- reports on whether this system of governing proves blessing, curse, or mess, and on the remarkable Austrian bodybuilder, movie star, and political man with the nerve to carry it out.

Critical Readings in Bodybuilding Book Excerpt:

In recent years the ‘body’ has become one of the most popular areas of study in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Bodybuilding, in particular, continues to be of interest to scholars of gender, media, film, cultural studies and sociology. However, there is surprisingly little scholarship available on contemporary bodybuilding. Critical Readings in Bodybuilding is the first collection to address the contemporary practice of bodybuilding, especially the way in which the activity has become increasingly more extreme and to consider much neglected debates of gender, eroticism, and sexuality related to the activity. Featuring the leading scholars of bodybuilding and the body as well as emerging voices, this volume will be a key addition to the fields of Sociology, Sport Studies, and Cultural Studies.

Coming On Strong Book Excerpt:

The unique sport of bodybuilding has finally, if suddenly, come into vogue. Of all the men who ever hefted tons of weight daily for years, just for the opportunity to pose on a stage for two minutes, Franco Columbu is one of the best developed—and easily the strongest. Coming On Strong examines Columbu’s private world, as well as that of his sport, and treats both with insight, intelligence, and humor. Where Pumping Iron offered an expert, objective view of the sport and its stars without detailed comment, Coming on Strong offers the athlete’s view from inside looking out. It recreates the great beauty and art to be found at bodybuilding’s highest levels, as well as the spirit, the competition, and the gamut of emotions to be found at all its levels. Most vivid of all is the picture of a remarkable athlete.

The Three Muscleteers Book Excerpt:

The Three Muscleteers is the story of Gold’s Gym and what’s now known around the world as the fitness industry. Not long ago, athletes of most popular sports — football, basketball, baseball — never lifted weights. Coaches and trainers, even doctors, were against it, especially for women. The film Pumping Iron, which made Arnold Schwarzenegger a star, was shot at Gold’s Gym. That, along with the explosion of bodybuilding competitions that followed throughout the ‘80s was a “big bang” moment. Thanks to the trifecta of Joe Weider’s fitness magazines, Arnold’s stardom, and Gold’s Gym, the fitness industry was transformed. As one of the three owners of Gold’s Gym during its golden years, Ed Connors will inspire with his success stories of hundreds of visitors to his home in Venice, CA (only blocks from Gold’s Gym). Visitors he believed were destined for greatness, like action film star and WWE champion John Cena, who helped make Gold’s Gym "the Mecca" and the largest gym chain in the world. Ed believes life is half fate and half what you do with it. The Three Muscleteers amplifies the importance of taking risks, creating the perfect team, and never giving up — inspiring bodybuilders, wrestlers, athletes, actors, architects, CEOs, and anyone willing to take a chance to flex their own muscles.
