Mad Scientist Muscle: Build Muscle Mass With Science Based Training by Nick Nilsson is a wonderful book which utilizes controlled overtraining, structural training and nutrition to optimize the body physiology from a sustained program of intensive exercise.

There are numerous schedules organized by body part, exercise, rounds of training, sets and interpretive explanatory notes which amplify the reasons for the intensive exercise. A general theme in the development of the workout regards overtraining certain muscle groups, planned intensification and undertraining in order to cultivate monster muscle mass methodically.

Nick Nilsson advises readers to have protein after workouts because the body needs raw material to build and recover from the stress of the training regimen. In addition, a scoop of protein powder is suggested upon waking from bed. Prior to retiring, whey protein and a small cup of milk are recommended. Protein should be taken again between meals. This protein regimen is popular with dieters as a substitute for sugar cravings consisting of sugary sodas, cakes, ice cream, candy and some carbs like greasy fries.

Nilsson discusses popular supplements like Glucosamine/Chondroitin to enhance optimal joint functioning. The popular anecdotal requirement for six servings of fruits or veggies is cited along with taking a good multivitamin.

There are extensive pictures throughout the book which depict the positioning of the body during key workout phases. In addition, there is a very extensive reference section at the end of work. Authoritative journals are cited; such as, Journal of Applied Physiology, Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism, European Journal of Applied Physiology/ Occupational Physiology, International Journal of Sports Nutrition, Sports Medicine and others.

Mad Scientist Muscle is a wonderful book which explains the mechanics of intensive workouts in simple language with plenty of diagrams and pictures to illustrate the proper way to modulate a workout designed to build monster muscle mass. Readers should consult with their medical providers before applying the concepts set forth in any workout regimen.

Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas.
