Methods of Vince Gironda - the legendary trainer of
Lou "The Incredible Hulk" Ferrigno and Arnold "The
Dear friend and fellow athlete,
Vince Gironda was the original "Iron Guru". The bodybuilders who trained at Vince's Gym included "Body by" Jake Steinman, Lou "The Incredible Hulk" Ferrigno, and even Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger. Vince also whipped the movie stars of the day into shape (he could get an out of shape actor looking like a stud in under four weeks time); he trained the likes of Clint Eastwood, James Garner and Denzel Washington. In fact, Vince's methods produced more champion bodybuilding stars than any other gym in the world; unfortunately, however, Vince's mind-blowing muscle building system - now known as the Gironda Method, was believed to be permanently lost - that is until now. In this letter, I'll tell you about Vince Gironda and his fascinating, powerful and highly secretive "Gironda Method." And, I'll let you know how you can learn to use Vince's mind-blowing, muscle-building methods yourself to build your own physique of a champion - safely and in record time. If you're looking to get massive, ripped, and shredded, then this may be the most important letter you ever read. Read on...
Vince Gironda was truly ahead of his time, unveiling a physique in the 1950’s that was both ripped and symmetrical - decades before those words even became part of bodybuilding's vocabulary. Add to that his radical training methods - he wouldn’t allow a squat rack in his gym - and his celebrated prickly "What the hell do ya want" manner and you have a bodybuilding personality who was known as the Iron Guru long before the word "guru" became chronically overused.
Vince Gironda - circa 1950
Recalling the past, you've probably noticed that old-school bodybuilding is enjoying a tremendous come-back these days. Many guys are sick and a little disgusted by the freaks that we see in today's bodybuilding magazines - those who used excessive drugs to take their physiques to unhealthy and unattractive levels. You might think, why the hell would I want to look like that? And who the hell would appreciate my physique if I did look like that? Many of today's bodybuilding magazines have become a repulsive collection of tits, abs, and drugs. Today, many bodybuilders, models, and everyday athletes are looking back to the way bodybuilding used to be in the 50's and 60's. The days in which bodybuilders like Vince Gironda built amazingly muscular physiques using superior training methods, rigorous nutrition, and creative supplementation.
Why look back at Vince Gironda's methods? Men wanting to build a hard, lean, well-muscled physique are looking back to the Gironda Method, not because of the state of bodybuilding today, but instead, they are looking back because they realize that what worked so well for guys back then can also work well for you today - enabling you to build the muscular physique of your dreams faster than you ever thought possible. And the Gironda Method will always work - you just have to figure out what Vince and his disciples were doing that enabled them to build such tremendous amounts of muscle that you are not doing now and then follow Vince's proven system. Simple enough right? If only! You see, when Vince passed away, many of his muscle building secrets and his mind-blowing method were believed to have gone with him. Sure Lou and Arnold remember Vince's Method, and probably still use them in their current training, but getting them to talk is not going to be real practical!
All is not lost however! Today, I'm pleased to introduce a new downloadable eBook by my friend Alan Palmieri - a longtime Vince student and a highly successful bodybuilder in his own right. Alan's new eBook is titled Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles. And in it, Alan shares his firsthand knowledge of Vince Gironda's mind-blowing, muscle-building methods and how you can apply them yourself. The exact training techniques, diet trick, and unorthodox supplementation that you can use to build your championship physique - safely and in record time. If you're looking to get built, ripped, and shredded, then these are the ultimate weapons to add to your bodybuilding arsenal - and you can read all about them and apply them to your own training routine without being subjected to Vince's famous temper like so many others were!
Back in the 50s and 60s, when most bodybuilders were big and smooth, Vince displayed symmetry, proportions, cuts, and definition never before seen in the sport. Vince was light years ahead of his time with his methods and teachings. Today, champion bodybuilders, athletes, and even teenagers are following parts of the nutrition, supplementation, and training advice that Vince preached years ago - sometimes without even knowing it. Furthermore, many people in the scientific community are finally embracing the Gironda Method. For example:
Like his training methods, the stories about Vince’s personality and mystique are legendary! How he would slam down the phone on people. How he would yell across the gym floor at students not performing movements correctly. On more than one occasion Vince even refunded gym membership fees, telling guys to get out of his gym simply because they asked him the wrong question! In several instances, Vince refused to accept new equipment into his gym from a number of manufactures because he didn’t think the new machines were anything new at all. Vince was a tyrant all right and anyone and everyone who had any contact with him knew it. Vince was also a genius when it came to nutrition and training. And those fortunate athletes who had the opportunity and patience to follow his methods knew he was a genius and were willing to tolerate all sorts of abuse in order to glean Vince's pearls of wisdom and the amazing muscularity that would come with them.
Vince wrote dozens of articles, books, and training manuals. He also published the responses to his students' questions. However, many of the most important techniques of the Gironda Method were not originally written down. And what was written down is often difficult to locate and is not available in one single source. Having insight into Vince’s personality - diet –supplement –nutrition and training concepts is something all fans of bodybuilding or anyone wanting an incredibly muscular body should have.
Alan Palmieri's Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles is the most complete and comprehensive book on Vince Gironda and the Gironda Method ever assembled in one convenient instantly downloadable PDF file. Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles is a downloadable eBook that contains over 300 pages of text, pictures, instructions, comments, and views by and about Vince Gironda as they were communicated directly to Alan Palmieri. It contains the lost training articles that Vince authored himself - unedited and and in their original format. Plus, it contains the interviews about Vince with legendary bodybuilding superstars like Larry Scott, Don Howorth, Bill Pearl, Dave Draper, and Dick Tyler. Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles is the most complete information source on Vince Gironda ever complied and it can be your personal blueprint to amazing muscularity and bodybuilding success.

Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles is GREAT!!! Everything I read it was and more. I highly recommend it as mandatory reading for anyone who wants to know about Vince Gironda, the man, his methods and his techniques.
I bought a fantastic book about Vince Gironda from Alan Palmieri. It is titled: Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles. The book is also a collection of many of Vince's courses and there are interviews with many famous names. Buy Alan's book everyone. Remember all; Vince was Larry Scott’s trainer.
Just a note to say thanks and what a great job you did with the new Vince book!
Received the Gironda book. Have had a chance to only skip read but it looks very interesting. To me it's nice to sell the material we work on, but in some respects the more important thing is to record events so that others might learn from them in the future. No matter what may happen to the material you so carefully assembled - it's now in print. For that alone, all of us in weight training owe you a debt of gratitude.
On behalf of so many - my thanks to what you've given us.
I finished reading Alan's Palmieri new book entitled Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles.
Alan did a fantastic job on this 300+ pages book. I purchased the eBook which I think is great because you can print what you want and make yourself a little montage for future reference.
The pictures are great with a nice resolution (I printed a couple of them with great results). I enjoyed the Ron Kosloff section, especially the Rheo Blair vs. Vince article. There is a great Q&A section. The interview section is also good; I especially enjoyed the Don Howorth interview. There is lots of information and it's a great piece of work on Vince Gironda.
Great job Alan on keeping Vince's memory alive and great book!
Without a doubt, the most complete and thorough work ever compiled on Vince Gironda. The eBook is fabulous…one source for all the information I could ever want on Vince Gironda and bodybuilding.
Just received the eBook and it's just LOADED with all things Vince!
Tonight is going to be a long night reading everything! The Pictures

content is terrific!
I just got the eBook that I ordered. After a quick scan of the material, I found that the book is all that Alan describes it to be. I'm looking forward to spending some enjoyable and instructive quality reading time with it. With the extras that come with the eBook, it is well over 300 pages, and the exercise diagrams and pictures cleared up some questions I had about the correct performance of a good many of the exercises. I am well pleased with my purchase.

PPS: Check out these excerpts from Vince Gironda - Building Legendary Muscles:
My very first contact with Vince was a long distance phone call. What a first impression that was!
“What do you want?”Is this Vince, I asked? “What do you want?”I would like to speak to Vince Gironda please. “Look for the third time what do you want?”“I don’t have time to play phone games!”This was exactly how my first phone call to Vince went.
That one my first but certainly not my last call to the “Iron Guru.”In fact some other calls were just as memorable if not more so, like the time Vince hung up on me and refused to take my calls. I recount how he eventually did accept my call and we got back to the business at hand.
What Vince had to say about bodybuilding was no secret and the bodybuilding world sought after his advice and thoughts on exercise and nutrition. Read what Vince had to say about developing muscle.
Developing muscle consists of two parts, developing more capillaries and more nerve pathways or better and stronger nerve impulses to the muscle. Also, to acquire larger muscles you must increase the intensity of work done within a given period of time. This means minimum rest between sets, you must push yourself. Workouts should be timed and you should constantly strive to shorten the time it takes to get through a routine. Vince said this was a form of Progressive Resistance. It does not matter how much work you do, what counts is how fast you do it. Vince said this was the Overload Principal. This principal explains why sprinters have larger leg development than long-distance runners. It is more work to run a mile than 100 yards but the sprinter is doing more work per second.
Vince stated the maximum amount of sets that can be performed to create a maximum pump to a muscle is 12 sets. Anything above or beyond this is overwork and causes the muscle to contract and lose its blood supply. This is not theory but fact. He claimed and I also agree, even top bodybuilders are effected by over work. It is the major fault of advanced bodybuilders as well as beginners.
Maximum pump in every workout does not build tissue. It only keeps it pumped up and bloated, but you cannot grow on this much work. Maximum pump workouts should not be employed more often than one week. It takes 72 hours to rebuild tissue after this type of workout. There is a fine line between enough work and too much work. A maximum pump routine is best performed using a weight that is about 60% of your maximum. Overenthusiastic workouts produce bloated muscle tissue but no gains.
Top bodybuilding stars take maximum workouts every workout. But they work each muscle only twice a week. Even with their superior metabolism, they still need 72 hours to recuperate. Workouts tear down tissue, rest builds it.
I cannot tell you the number of times I have talked about this very subject. I learned it from Vince years ago and it is perhaps one of the most valuable lessons that can be learned. If one is sincerely interested in bodybuilding and desires to build muscle, keep each word of what you have just read fresh on your mind at all times. I have seen beginners as well as advanced bodybuilders make sensational gains from following this advice and understanding what you just read.
The only way to properly work any muscle and develop it to its fullest potential is by understanding as much as possible about the muscle itself. You must find out and know:
1. Its function.
2. Its anatomy.
3. The physiological function.
4. The proper tempo at which you must work the muscle.
5. The selection of the right amount of weight to be used.
6. How many sets and reps need to be performed to stimulate the muscle to the maximum and not overwork it.
7. The selection of the right exercise to place the stress on the aspect of the muscle you need or wish to develop.
And people thought and still think bodybuilders are not very intelligent! Give me a break! Remember, the more you know about what you are doing, the more rewarding and successful your results will be.
