Unleashing The Wild Physique by Vince Gironda
Written 44 years after opening his world-famous Vince’s Gym, ‘Unleashing The Wild Physique’ is a collection of Vince Gironda’s thoughts concerning every aspect of bodybuilding culture.
From training and nutrition, all the way to steroids and women’s bodybuilding, Vince leaves no stone unturned.
Unlike many training texts that have been written purely on theory and speculation, Vince’s training philosophies have been molded from years of experience in the gym, and much trial and error.
Vince’s attitude towards bodybuilding is very much a dying one.
Rather than being concerned with building as much size as possible, Vince believed bodybuilding should be about creating the most aesthetically pleasing physique possible.
So whilst large muscles were important, it should never be at the expense of shape and symmetry, which he reveals to great extent within ‘Unleashing The Wild Physique’.
A common misconception is that Vince was only interested in the high-level competitive bodybuilder, but by his own admission, nothing could be further from the truth.
He was interested in every bodybuilder, novice and pro, young and old, male and female.
