There are too many diet book reviews so I thought of doing one review on a book that was “dedicated” mostly for training.
A training program that promises something to the reader and actually delivers so the reader will be happy with the progress over time and recommend it further.
I stumbled upon visual muscle building and immediately, I sensed something wrong on the page where Rusty Moore (the creator) sells it:
Ok, let’s go over it and suppose that it was something genuine and he actually has something good in this book so that our gained muscle mass won’t “go to the wrong places”.
Here is what I concluded from reading this book
Visual Impact Muscle Building Review – In-Depth
What I Like
The pictures inside the book
What I Don’t Like About Visual Impact Muscle Building
- The presumption that the big 3 lifts will make your waist larger
- Programming the workouts in 3 “phases” which are a BS from the start
- Bad programming of the workout sessions – too much volume and exercises ( he clearly doesn’t have a clue what a proper programming would mean )
- In Phase II he drops squats and only favors deadlifts (again, the big legs and waist problem – duh..)
- His nutrition recommendations are laughable in the best case because I LMAO when I looked at his protein recommendations which are 0.6-0.7 for building mass and strength.Really ?
- He recommends fasted training with no pre workout nutrition whatsoever (intermittent fasting was discussed here)
- He recommends skipping squats in favor of running because “body weight movements works the legs properly” and preaches the same old “functional training” dogma that he doesn’t even understands.
- He gives you an alternative “phase 1” workout plan without a proper leg training (he only puts upper body 4 times a week ) and spits out the saying that HIIT will be enough for your legs.
- Exercise demonstration book – for me is just another throw up in the package that has no added value just because most of the exercises listed there can be found better explained on youtube or on some video sharing website
- Workout charts – this can’t be serious…
What Is The Biggest Pile Of … That This Author Said
WARNING, extreme amounts of BS present in the book so take a cross with you in case you got it before you’ve read my review
Here Is The BS:
“So how are you going to add those 5-6 pounds of fat free muscle in 3 weeks?”
“Answer—> Creatine! Creatine will build up that sarcoplasmic hypertrophy in
the absence of any extra calories. You will be able to load those muscle cells
to the max and your skin will tighten up around your full and dense muscles.”
I don’t even have words to say how angry I am that there are still guys out there that are promoting the BS in the fitness industry and reach to such a HIGH LEVEL.
I mean, just read it again and try to visualize the muscle getting into your stomach and up on your hands and chest (NOT serious).
That affirmation has no scientific research to back it and my final guess is that this guy probably uses some interesting and sharp needles to get that body because he clearly doesn’t have a clue on how to eat, train and even use supplements.
You can’t build muscle mass in absence of calories PERIOD
Conclusion Visual Impact Muscle Building Review
I can’t stress you enough how much BS is inside this package.
Now, from the standpoint of wasting your time, sure, you will waste some hours until you finish reading this crap but the biggest problem is that you don’t have anything GOOD to learn from this book.
I did reviews of bigger books, take for example Will Brink’s bodybuilding reveled book which is a 600 + page book and I found some flaws here and there but most of the information is actual genuine and worth reading for learning something.
I hope that my visual impact muscle building review opened your eyes and saved you time and bad information from flowing in your head (my head hurts when I read these kind of books ).
