|Skip down to the “Bottom Line”|
Gregg Gillies’s muscle building program is a good effort aimed at the hardgainer market. Gillies has some experience in transforming his own physique and additionally demonstrates that he has researched the topic extensively.
The ebook starts by taking its readers through five principles that Gillies identifies as critical to building mass fast. He also discusses some mental strategies and matching your expectations to your genetics.
In my opinion, Gillies is right on target with his thoughts and recommendations.
In some places, however, the book starts reading like a discussion of various training strategies rather than a presentation of a specific program. He seems to be defending his own conclusions. He delves deeper into the particulars of the science and research than seems necessary and ends up creating some unnecessary confusion.
The prescribed routines seem sound and, overall, I think Gillies does get across the principles necessary to make those routines work. He doesn’t offer any description or instruction on any of the exercises.
The nutrition section is okay. I’d like to see him get more into the “how” because I think that is where most trainers struggle – not with knowing what to eat but rather doing the actual eating and understanding the just how many calories it can take. Unadvertised at the time I bought was the inclusion of 12 weeks worth of sample diets. It should be advertised, it is a nice little bonus.
He is brief in his discussion of supplements and doesn’t offer any advice on how to best use those supplements he mentions. He also takes a brief look at high intensity cardio.
Praise goes to Gillies for keeping his sales page fairly light on the hype. The advertised bonuses include the training logs which took him to some impressive gains. He also includes 3 months email support.
And, with a unique and nice touch, he promises to donate $1 from every sale to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
2 of 5 Stars: There is some good advice in “Skinny Guy’s Guide To Building Mass Fast”. It is a rather slow read though. It never really reached out and grabbed me. I was never convinced that Gillies was overly-confident in what he was writing and would therefore question the program’s ability to leave beginner trainers confident that they had found the best ticket to physique change.
