I’ve read this book a long time ago and re-read it now in order to give you a real and transparent review, unlike the general mass promoting this product.
My no nonsense muscle building ebook review will open your eyes. After you will read the truth about this ebook, you’ll know what to do next.
I feel that there are too many people that act on emotions and instinct at buying these over-hyped products.
As a quick guide and friendly suggestion from me, everything that promises you diet secrets, insane muscle gaining secrets, training secrets or, like in this book, “skinny guy secrets to insane muscle gain”, needs to be questioned.
It needs to be reviewed by someone that knows how to train and diet. By someone that knows what’s good or wrong.
I really haven’t found a real review of this book on the internet.
One that would tackle every aspect of this book, one that would give me the answer to my question: “should I get the no nonsense muscle building book by vince delmonte, or this is just a scam?”
Who Is Vince Delmonte
At the end of this book, he is presenting himself as a natural competing fitness model, freelance writer, personal trainer, and fitness consultant.
He supposedly has a honors kinesiology degree and some certifications.
Alright. The guy seems legit if you look at his physique and training history. I don’t know if he is natural or uses something but nonetheless, I’ll stay focused on the book content.
Also, at the end of my no nonsense muscle building review, I will give you my recommendation but try to read all the review. It will take you only a few minutes.
What Is This Book About?
It is marketed and sold as a diet and training book that promises a no nonsense approach to diet and training. Vince Delmonte promised that after you’ll read his book, you will have the answer to dieting and training the right way.
You will lose fat the right way. You will train the right way to maintain or gain muscle mass. Is it true?
Let’s find out:
- There are some informative paragraphs there, but the good information is just too dispersed.
- There is just too much general information that you can find with simple searches, making it not worth the money for what you get.
- The same old “supplement companies rip you quote that is supposed to gain your trust”.
- There’s just too much hype in this product
- Dictates that hormone levels can be influenced by some methods like: “Fortunately, to some degree, testosterone levels can be controlled by the ratios of food in the diet and exercise.”, which is completely nonsense.
His rules are explained in detail and these are just some of them:
- Eating every 2-3 hours for “insane muscle gain”
- Eating 40-60 grams of protein every meal to promote “insane muscle gain”
- Vegetables with every meal that promote “insane muscle gain”
- Healthy fats to promote “insane muscle gain”
- Eliminate beverages, eat whole foods, eat a wide spectrum of foods and other BS that isn’t worth mentioning.
My comment on his fat loss principles:
He gives outdated fat loss advice like eating 6 meals a day which is only a myth. Eating 6 meals a day is no better than eating 2.
The training chapter continues with recommendations like:
- Training to failure everytime
- The maximum tension should be 40-70 seconds for “maximum metabolic gains”
- Maximum tension of 20-40 seconds for “maximal neural gains”
- Upside down training phase
- He speaks of terminologies like giant sets and crash sets without applying them correctly
My comment on his training principles:
The training programs are a joke in all seriousness. Aside from giving you badly programmed training programs, you get recommendations like “follow a specific tempo” and gimmicks like this.
The last thing that I wanted to point out to you are his recommendations: 0.8 grams of carbohydrate/kg of bodyweight and 0.4 grams of protein/kg of body weight diluted in about 1 liter of water.
I personally bought it years ago because I wanted to learn as much as possible about bodybuilding, diets and training.
After I started reading research and speaking with knowledgeable people in this industry that really know their thing, I was and still am sad and disappointed for all the money I’ve spent in buying all the marketed crap.
From my no nonsense muscle building review you can conclude that I do not recommend this book.
And because there still are people that search for a good book on bodybuilding and fat loss, here are some alternatives that are worth your time and money, and actually teach you how to get lean and lose all the fat you have:
