An Interview With Brooks Kubik

Knife, Fork, Muscle  Diet and Nutrition for Lifelong Strength and Health

Brooks Kubik is one of the most prolific authors in Physical Culture. In a world populated by ghostwriters, Brooks is one of the few who actually writes his own training material.
Brooks has been training for over 45 years and has demonstrated time and again, by using his own body, that his training and nutrition programs work! Brooks is a multi-time state and regional powerlifting champion,
five-time national bench press champion and has set over a dozen national and world records in the bench press. All as a drug tested athlete!
Brooks has authored numerous articles published in “HardGainer”, “Milo”, “Ironman” and “Muscle and Fitness”. His 1996 masterpiece, Dinosaur Training: Lost Secrets of Strength and Development, became an international best seller. Now, nearly 20 years later , he has two dozen books, courses and DVDs to his credit! Today, at age 57, he trains as hard as ever in his garage gym. Brooks and his beautiful wife, Trudi live in Louisville, Kentucky, where they promote sustainable living practices, enjoy a healthy, super-nutritious, all-natural diet, (much of which they grow themselves) and together they run the Dinosaur operation.
