From the laufmachine to the Brompton, learn about the evolution of the bicycle from two wheeled toy of the aristocracy through to the boom years of the cycling revolution today.

    The RIGHT vegan diet plus the RIGHT bodybuilding regime EQUALS rock-hard quality muscle. There is absolutely no reason at all for a vegan diet to restrict anyone in the slightest when it comes to packing on muscle.

        and dietary plans.

    Secret Tips to raise Testosterone naturally.   
    --Firstly...  
    I keep things simple - no B.S rubbish about doing LESS training and eating LESS and how there is some SECRET holding you back. How did the bodybuilders in the 60's and 70's look so great? Training frequency and nutrition. How and what - that's the only secret. But you've probably been doing some of the things right but not all - that's where this book can help you.   
      
    I focus on 3 simple cornerstones...  
      
    --Training Frequency  
    Don't worry you don't need to follow months of weird training routines - mine is two weeks - and repeat. An upper/lower week and a precision week. Muscles are shocked into growth. I lay out all the routines out simply and easily 'at-a-glance'.   
      
    --BodyFat   
    Through the intensity of the workouts and the nutritional plan we are going to reduce your body fat. Why? Your Testosterone is utilized at it's best when you have a lower body fat percentage.   
      
    --Nutrition  
    Nutrition is considered the most important part of building muscle and eating the correct Vegan Nutrition is vital. If the nutrition is incorrect then it doesn't matter how impeccable your training routines are, you will not progress. I'm sure you have an idea about nutrition, but I'm here to give your knowledge a little boast.  
      
    Finally 
    I also go into the tips for maximizing size including what supplements to use and when.   
      
    I also go into tips for maximizing training intensity - Supersets and TUT.   
    Imagine you in a 3 months time and people complimenting you on how you look?   
       
    No more wasted workouts - check out this 27 chapter  workout training guide and get building size!
