The Bastion of Drug-Free Bodybuilding instruction

For hardgainers and other bodybuilders

Are you struggling to build muscle?

Are you a hardgainer?

If you are, don’t be discouraged. Most bodybuilders make little progress simply because the conventional bodybuilding methods they apply suck.

Follow Stuart McRobert’s guidance on natural bodybuilding (who’s Stuart?), learn how to train properly, apply yourself correctly, and you really can develop a terrific physique and transform your fitness.

Quickly become your own expert personal trainer.


The guidance for building muscle, losing fat and improving fitness is the same for men and women.

The benefits from proper bodybuilding training are extensive for both sexes. The visible benefits are the most obvious, but there are many internal benefits that improve health and fitness.

Conventional bodybuilding methods don’t work well for most bodybuilders. Those methods create hardgainers.

Set aside the myths and traditions that have limited your bodybuilding progress. And be prepared for radical if not revolutionary training concepts.

Read the articles and book excerpts on this website and you’ll get an idea of what we’re about. Then if you’re ready to make bodybuilding progress, study a couple of our books and apply what you learn.

If you need help to customize the general training advice to suit your particular needs and circumstances, consider having Stuart as your personal coach for a few consultation sessions.
