Build Your Arms!

Build Your Arms is a Kindle digital reader download available at . This arm course contains complete instruction on biceps, triceps, and forearm exercises with photos of each exercise and stretches between sets. Now you can Build Your Arms for a lifetime and you don’t need a lot of equipment. A bench with an adjustable set of dumbbells and barbell would get you started and well along in the program. Add an overhead and lower pulley, EZ curl bar, dip bars, gripper, incline bench and that’s all you need for the advanced routine. . You can do the programs at home or at commercial gym. There’s the beginning program needing only barbell, bench and dumbbells, the intermediate programs using overhead pulley and EZ curl bar, and the advanced program adding a gripper and incline bench. This course even gives you super set combinations using the exercises described and illustrated. Even if you don’t have the arm training equipment you find in a commercial gym you can easily do the program at home with a minimum of equipment. As a matter of fact training for Mr. Olympia summer of 1976 my arms got better than ever training them twice a week using only one dumbbell and 2 triceps 2 biceps/forearm exercises.

With this kind of arm instruction on your reader, tablet or laptop you can easily follow the program referring to the illustration and description of each exercise as you do it. Build Your Arms makes it easy!

Building the Body: Summer 2014

The Summer 2014 issue of  Building the Body quarterly is being finished at the printers and we plan to mail it out the weekend of August 2nd If you've had it with muscle mags that are 75% advertising, full of photos of overgrown bloated monster physiques then check out our publication:  No paid advertising, no freaky physiques.  Our goal is to promote the symmetrical physique with great photos and interesting articles:

The Most Muscular Pose gives Frank's view on why posing is necessary for anyone who wishes to measure progress effectively.

What About Bulking Up? If you want to develop the best look to your physique this is why you should not bulk up.  Why gain a bunch of weight (fat, water, some muscle) and then lose it when you trim down leaving you where you started?

Selective Growth is what quality bodybuilding is all about, that is isolating those body parts you want to grow.  Learn how to pump up the small body parts and get better balance to your development.

Let’s Grow is not about Bulking Up.  Frank's new book explains in great detail how to grow those body parts that contribute to your overall proportionate symmetrical look.

Life’s too short to fish with a dead cricket is the story of Blake Sherrod, who in 50s, dropped 40 pounds of fat in under 4 months.  Read his story, see his amazing before and after photos!

Latman describes how to get wider fuller lats, what to do and how to do it.  See bodybuilding' widest lat spread, learn who is Latman!

Bodybuilding: State of the Art - All the mail we get wants to see more of the symmetrical physiques from the 60s, 70s, and 1980s before mass became master. Our goal is to show these physiques and tell their story.

What is Potential?  Behavioral psychologists say there is no such thing since it's not a behavior and you cannot measure it.  But we say it's a mixture of what they are born with and what they do to cultivate it.  Can potential be a curse?

Is 70 the New 40?  As older physiques look younger and younger is it possible to look 20 or even 30 years younger than your chronological age by training, eating, and thinking right?

Letters asks some interesting questions that deserve honest answers.

How Much Carbs?  Eat too much carbs and you'll get fat, don't eat enough of them and you lack energy, brain power, and the ability to get a pump in your workout.  What's the right amount?

Frankly Speaking about supplements describes our latest experiments with N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine to build immunity and healthy skin and hair.  And learn about our new Nature Pacs for easy convenient vitamin/mineral/phyto-nutrient supplementation.

Training has been going well and I'm looking forward to stepping up the intensity and see what kind of shape I can get into for the Autumn season.  I plan to stick to my three workouts a week for now because it's working.  Just turned 72 and it's enough training but as Summer progresses I'd like to bump it up to a 5 day cycle training three days out of 5: train back of upper body, rest, train legs, train front of upper body, rest, repeat.  This is the program described in my Let's Grow book which is selling very well.  As incentive to get my literature I'm offering a special deal:  buy my 3 books Let's Grow, Symmetry, and High Def Body and get my Train with Zane Workout DVD ($40 value) FREE.  Learn more at

Let's Grow is Here!

It's been a busy week, just finished mailing the Spring issue of Building the Body quarterly and have been autographing and mailing copies of Let's Grow all week.  I really like this book and feel it is very useful for anyone desiring to grow in different ways.  It gets into training movement performance to isolate and shape individual bodyparts, stuff I've been experimenting with for years.  It's amazing the pump you can get when you follow these techniques.  Check it out at

Keep Growing,
Frank Zane

IN THIS ISSUE of Building the Body Spring 2014

The Spring 2014 issue of Building the Body quarterly is being printed and we should be sending it out by the beginning of the week of May 18th. One of my bodybuilding role models Larry Scott passed away recently and this issue is dedicated to him.


Passing of a Legend saddened by the passing of Larry Scott we dedicate this issue to his memory.  In this article Frank tells how Larry inspired him.

Benefits of Massage - Here's why it's a good idea to get a massage every week or two.

Herbs, Spices and Inflammation - Better to take these than resort to drugs, here are the best ones but don't count on immediate relief.

Arm Reps - the secret to great arm development is to get at least a pump, preferably a burn on every set.  This call for higher reps, here's how.

Wide Asleep - Sleep is vital for many reasons, these are some of the most important.

Let’s Grow is here! - I'm happy to present my newest book for sale, only available here, personally autographed.  It's got tons of information on how to isolate and grow specific bodyparts and create a well shaped body.

My Personal Workout - I've been working out three times a week on the new Let's Grow routine doing back of upper body on Tuesday, Legs on Thursday, and front of upper body on Saturday.

About Let’s Grow - Early reviews love this book and I had fun writing it.

Shaken not Stirred is the best way to take our new Egg White Perfection.  An interview with amino acid expert Don Tyson lays out the fundamentals and nutritional benefits of amino acid and protein supplementation.

Personal Progress - Gotta say I'm pleased with how my body is responding to my three workouts a week and my stricter nutritonal program.

We Get Letters - A bunch of interesting emails this issue, could write an entire issue just on reader comments and questions.

Under the Sun - I knew it, this is why a little sunbathing is good for you.

Front Raise - Do you need to add this movement to your upper body workout?  Usually not if you are doing a lot of pressing movements, but if you did need more frontal deltoids what's the best way to do this exercise?

Frankly Speaking - Here's what I think.

Goods and Services - We have a protein amino acid supplement special for paid subscribers to BTB.  If you don't already, subscribe for $24 a year in USA.   We just uncovered a lot of color slides taken 1970 through early 1990 Frank Zane and other competitors which all unpublished which will be featured  in upcoming issue of Building the Body.

I'm happy to report that my newest book Let's Grow is now at the publisher and I expect arrival by late May. Already we have many pre-orders and it's appropriate because this book is good one with over 300 photos and 200 pages. Consequently because I've worked on the book so much over the last few months, publication of the Spring 2014 issue of Building the Body Quarterly has been delayed a few weeks. I'm almost finished with it and should be sending the issues out right before the Let's Grow book is mailed. Keep watching this blog for updates on publication of the book as well as the next issue of BTB.
