Hail to the Dinosaurs! I often get questions from readers who are agonizing over their training program. They want to start a new routine, but they're not sure what to do. They write it down, look at it, think about it -- put it away -- think about it some more -- pick it up again -- look it over -- add some stuff -- take some stuff out -- change the sets and reps -- put it down again, worry some more -- and repeat over and over. That's a shame.

The days where people used logs, kegs, anvils and sandbags to get stronger? Yet you may have wondered what Old Time Strongmen did to get stronger. The method is called Dinosaur Training. There is a movement in the fitness industry that believes lifting specific, heavy objects that one would find on a farm or in a house, builds strength more effectively. This type of training is more of a mindset.

There goal is not to look good, or be able to run an ultra-marathon. Their goal is strength, period. And by focusing only on this objective, there is some legitimacy to their claims. Although not the optimum approach to well balanced health, Dinosaur Training is a cool way to get you back in touch with the roots of physical fitness and physical culture.

Dinosaur Training

A gym used to be a serious place for serious people, interested in building serious strength, but in modern times its safe to say that gyms have become glorified juice bars — with no shortage of chrome, ferns, and pencil-neck pseudo experts who wave around plastic dumbbells while making sure their designer headbands matched their suede lifting belts. Weight training was slowly but surely being taken over by the druggers … the toners … the bros … the poseurs … the pretty boys … the pencil necks … the whiners … the pump artists …the arm-chair experts …and the mirror athletes. This man had enough — Enough! His name was Brooks Kubik, and what happened next started a revolution throughout the entire world of strength. While Brooks had authored articles in several different publications over the years. He wrote about the training that had worked for him, how he trained in high school, how he trained in college, how he trained to win multiple National Championships in Bench Press Powerlifting meets, and how his favorite oldtime strongmen used to train…. Brooks had originally planned to type out a fifty or so page manuscript and possibly sell though more likely give it away to the few people out in the world he thought might be interested in it.


Dinosaur Training: Lost Secrets of Strength and Development

Dinosaur training positions itself in opposition to aerobics exercise culture and to bodybuilding and other training methods geared towards cosmetic purposes. It stresses intensity, hard work, functional strength, power, endurance and mental toughness. Dinosaur training methodologies have been disseminated through the training manuals written by Brooks D. Historical lifters like Peary Rader and various late 19th-century and early 20th-century strongmen and physical culture proponents such as Eugen Sandow are regarded as being inspiration of dinosaur training styles. Kubik's book Dinosaur Training became highly acclaimed by the weight-lifting community. It offered simple yet effective routines, which were in stark contrast to complex routines offered by many authors within the fitness industry. Kubiks books are written in a motivational style, with an edge of humour.
