For Powerlifters, Weightlifters, and Bodybuilders. In the only training book of its kind, Paul Kelso expands the "shrug principle" with dozens of variations that improve muscularity and the competitive lifts. "Trap bar" and rib cage enlargement programs are included. Kelso's articles in Powerlifting USA, Iron Man, Muscular Development, and Hardgainer, plus books THE KELSO SHRUG SYSTEM and POWERLIFTING BASICS: TEXAS-STYLE, have spread these ideas worldwide.
"Paul Kelso has...finally...updated his original book on shrugs, a revamp so comprehensive that the new version is actually 75% longer! He not only added a lot of material, but rewrote much as well, cutting out some stuff he no longer believes in and adding two new chapters, including one on bench pressing that demands your attention. He has also codified his philosophy into what may evermore be known as 'Kelso's Shrug Laws.' This is not just an exhaustive treatise on a relatively under-utilized body of training movements: it is an effort to really 'think through' the exercise and develop every conceivable practical application for it. After reading a proof of the book, I was struck by the depth of Paul's historical investigation of the exercise (he carefully and consistently notes that he did not 'invent' much when it comes to the shrug...but he sure organized virtually all that has ever been known about it), as well as the way he places this exercise into its proper context within ph "Who better than Paul Kelso to put a new spin on the shrug -- again?"

-- Mike Lambert, Editor/Publisher, "Powerlifting USA" "This unique book should be in every lifter's library."
-- Dr. Ken Leistner "[Mr. Kelso has] taken the shrug farther than anyone in the game."
-- Peary Rader, founder of "Iron Man" magazine "Paul has done more for my bench than everyone else put together."
