High Def Body by Frank Zane


It took me a while to open Frank Zane’s new book—not because I wasn’t looking forward to reading it but because of the photo on the cover. I just kept staring at it and shaking my head. Zane has one of the most perfect physiques in bodybuilding, past or present, and High Def Body reveals how he built it.

The book is not just about how Zane trains,  however. He covers everything from abbreviated workouts to healing injuries to competition to visualization and meditation to nutrition and supplementation. It’s a very complete 224-page book that’s jam-packed with beginning, intermediate and advanced bodybuilding info.

For the older set there’s even a chapter on age-management medicine, where Zane discusses DHEA, pharmaceuticals, longevity and chronic pain. Zane has been training hard for more than 40 years, so he has special insight into those subjects.

While the photo on the cover is spectacular—or should I say mesmerizing—there are even more impressive shots of Zane throughout the book, many I’d never seen before and in all stages of conditioning. It’s interesting to see Zane bulked up compared to his lean look. Most of the photos are so inspirational that they are worth the price of this book alone.

High Def Body is one tome you’ll refer to over and over throughout your training career—for both information and inspiration.
