Zane Bodybuilding Manual is the ultimate reference book told through the story of Frank’s bodybuilding career. This is a detailed autobiographical account of Frank’s training for competitions and the psychological preparation leading up to them. Now in his 80s with over 70 years of weight training, Frank has done it all. With advanced degrees from 3 universities and a master’s degree in Psychology Frank combines brains and brawn by winning all of bodybuilding’s major titles: Mr. America, Mr. World, Mr. Universe 3 times, and Mr. Olympia 3 times.
“I’ve always wanted to have one book with everything in it” Frank has said, and this book is it. The book is filled with exercise programs he has personally used with the thousands of people he has trained in his Zane Experience programs in San Diego. There are routines for beginners, intermediates, and physique competitors as well with detailed instructions on posing. Included are training routines for children, seniors, and Christine Zane’s Feminine Physique course.
Zane Nutrition section contains lots of tasty recipes and information on amino acids, vitamins, and minerals and super foods. One of the unique things about this book is its instruction on how bodybuilding can be used as one’s own personal growth psychology. By developing the ability to improve and change your body you mold a pattern for improving your thinking and your life.
Energy conservation is a vital part of the bodybuilding equation—it’s the key to stress management. Meditation is fully explained, and Frank reveals the techniques he used to develop a winning attitude. It can work for you. The 91 Day Wonder Body program at the end of the book makes this the complete workout reference manual that will guide you to build the body of your dreams!
