The Science of the Perfect Physique at any Age: Mr. Olympia Frank Zane #506

“I was able to convince myself that I was the winner and I think that’s the secret of winning is to win it ahead of time.”

Frank Zane is a American former professional body builder. Author of more than 15 books on fitness, nutrition, and body building. But calling him a body builder doesn’t really do him justice.

He’s a three time Mr. Olympia and his physique is considered to be one of the greatest in the history of body building, due to his incredible focus on symmetry and proportion. He was called the king of aesthetics in the body building world.

While most people assume we will peak when we are young, my new book, SUPER HUMAN: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever, reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to transform how you look and feel now, get healthier and disease-proofed with every decade, and dramatically extend your lifespan. Said differently, I wrote this book to help you have better sex, develop super brain power, avoid disease and live until 180.

Live better now and live longer later. Get reading.
