I believe many of you would have seen me wearing the Dinosaur Training T shirt and the hoodie in the gym. Brooks kubik, is the man behind Dinosaur training. He turned 54 years on the 9th of September.
Brookskubik has been a prolific writer on strength training. I have read his several works and have embraced many of his ideas. What impresses me the most is that he is one of the few individuals who is a living example of practicing what he preaches, for he still lifts heavy iron just the way he states in his books.
Brooks Kubik in his book on older lifters Grey Hair And Black Iron states that anyone who is above the 35 year mark has to consider taking appropriate measures to recover well. I am 35 years old now and though I feel much younger, I take extreme care in structuring my routines, for as Brooks states and as I too have realized that recovering well from your workouts becomes paramount, for you don’t want to be hit by injuries more often when you age.
By the way, Brooks Kubik has won several State and Regional Power lifting Championship in drug tested competitions. He is also a five-time National Bench Press Champion in drug tested competitions, and has been training for over 40 years.
Wish him a belated birthday. If you are interested to learn more about him visit him at www.brookskubik.com. And do watch him bench pressing 183 kilograms in a drug free competition in the below video.
