A hard book to find, but one that is well worth the effort. Bob Paris is famous for being one of the last truly aesthetic Bodybuilders. Working tirelessly on posing, definition and proportion over pure size. And in his book he not only provides his own insight into bodybuilding and the art of posing but provides a valuable insight into contest prep.
For anyone who is an aspiring to compete or coach those who are competing this is a great resource to have in your arsenal. Filled with training tips and exercises along side nutritional advice and posing breakdowns it is a must read for all fans of bodybuilding.
Even if you never aspire to step on stage it is still packed full of useful tips and exercises to help you add shape and definition to your body and is a fascinating read if this area and training style interests you.
This book proved to be worth every penny spent in its pursuit for me back in 2014 when I competed for the first time, from the simple inspiring image on the front cover, to the training and contest tips and even small things like his list of vital equipment for the day, making sure to have music or books to put in the time, have pump up music and equipment, have your posing music copied in different formats just in case and much more. It is a great book for those wanting to compete.
