Brooks Kubik is a five-time national bench press champion who is known to strength trainers around the world as the author of Dinosaur Training: Lost Secrets of Strength and Development, an international best seller that has been called “the bible of strength training.” Published in 1996, and in print ever since, Dinosaur Training revived many forgotten exercises and workouts, and started a revolution in strength training that continues to this day.

Brooks has written and published over 30 books and courses covering strength training and muscle building, physical and mental conditioning, strength training for sports, training for lifelong strength and health, old-school strength training and muscle building, drug-free training, Iron Game history, and strength training for those in the over-40 age group.

In addition to writing books and courses, Brooks also publishes The Dinosaur Files, a monthly newsletter covering strength training, muscle building, weight training, bodyweight training, old-school isometrics, the mental aspects of strength training, physical culture, diet and nutrition, and Iron Game history.

Brooks and his wife, Trudi, live in Port Townsend, Washington, a small seaport on the Salish Sea separating the US from Canada. At age 63, with more than half a century of regular training under his belt, Brooks still trains hard and heavy in his home gym. He believes that regular physical activity is an important key to lifelong strength and health, and combines his barbell and dumbbell workouts with old-school isometrics, bodyweight training, Indian club workouts, walking, and hiking. When he’s not hitting the iron or working on new Dinosaur Training projects you’ll find him out in the garden where he and Trudi grow as much of their food as possible.

Brooks believes in making strength training, muscle building, and lifelong strength and health accessible to everyone, at every age – and teaches ways to get great results with simple workouts, basic equipment, and healthy home-cooked meals.
