  • Phenomenal

    By Moonlight Graham
    I’ve joined Arnold’s Pump app for my workouts, and thought it would be fun to supplement that with his encyclopedia. Well, that couldn’t have been more awesome. The encyclopedia is an incredibly fun and interesting read. It has a comprehensive write up of a ton of exercises, with a lot of good info from a Arnold. I’ve been reading this thing daily. Totally worth the purchase.

  • Big book

    By Sarahdawn0505
    It's great if your just starting to workout because it shows you basically everything you need to know about gaining muscle. Or if you have been lifting for awhile then it's a good review.
