Neuro-Mass

The Ultimate System for Spectacular Strength

By Jon Bruney

Paperback - 268 pages

Read the foreword by Marty Gallagher for Neuro-Mass

See complete Table of Contents for Neuro-Mass

“Jon Bruney brings his straightforward, cohesive and clear approach to training in Neuro-Mass, telling you what to do, why and how—combining grinders, dynamic movements and isometrics in a training program that can help you redefine your best.”—RANDALL J. STROSSEN, Ph.D., Founder & President, IronMind Enterprises, Inc.; Publisher & Editor-in-chief, MILO: A Journal For Serious Strength Athletes.

“Anyone looking to blast themselves out of whatever quagmire they find themselves mired in need look no further than the protocols and strategies outlined in this excellent book. Athletes need what Jon is offering: pure power combined with amazing capacity for sustained and continual strength output. This type of training can provide users an entirely new strength approach that will prove particularly beneficial to fighters, athletes, military and law enforcement types. The approach will also allow regular folks a method with which to round out their current capacities and capabilities.”—MARTY GALLAGHER, 3-time World Master Powerlifting Champion, author of The Purposeful Primitive

“I keep thinking I have seen it all in the fitness industry, but Neuro-Mass, by Jon Bruney has taken the gems from the world of Strongman competition and linked it with the systematic approach of the kettlebell world’s grinds and ballistics. So, what you have is something different: it’s the connection between strongman, armor-building, grinding and ballistics that I’m not sure anyone has explored before in print. I keep shaking my head as I go through this and realize that we are still learning amazing things about how to improve performance. I love the book.”—DAN JOHN, author of Never Let Go

"How To Develop Maximum Strength, Speed, Power, Muscle and Unstoppable Conditioning - In 3 Hours Per Week Or Less"

If You Want To Be Way More MUSCULAR, Way STRONGER, Way FASTER and Ready To Handle Any Physical Challenge Any Time – This Could Be THE Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Read…

This notice is for you—if you'd like to achieve the following:

  • Add extra, quality, smart MUSCLE to your body

  • Quickly build maximal strength

  • Become faster and way more POWERFUL

  • Develop monster conditioning, for stallion-like endurance

What you’re about to discover isn’t ‘just another training program’ – it’s something truly special…Something ‘game changing’ in the world of strength and conditioning.

Neuro-Mass–Why It Will Make You Bigger, Stronger, Faster and Ready To Handle ANY Physical Challenge Thrown At You

 
Most training programs focus on ONE physical attribute at the expense of many others…

For instance:

Bodybuilders are experts in building MUSCLE MASS, but they often aren’t very strong for their size and sometimes lack the athleticism their impressive physiques suggest they should have.

Powerlifters have ferocious MAXIMAL STRENGTH, but very often lack the physical conditioning to do more than a few heavy singles on the squat, bench press and deadlift. That’s just the way it is…

You can’t have it all…

Unless of course – you follow Jon Bruney’s Neuro-Mass training program.

With Neuro-Mass – you really can have it all…

You can have impressive muscle mass, huge strength, the speed and power to dominate in any sport and the type of conditioning you need to handle ANY physical challenge that comes your way.

And you can get it all in just 3 hours training a week OR LESS.

"Jon Bruney's Neuro-Mass is a masterpiece in the world of strength and conditioning. Neuro-Mass is a must for anyone wanting to succeed in athletics, coaching, training or life in general. The methods and principles in Neuro-Mass teach you to sustain and work through difficulty. These principles in return will make you strong and successful in every aspect of your life. Finally a program that teaches real life-changing methods to help you succeed in your chosen battlefield."—JOHN BROOKFIELD, Multiple World Record Holder, Creator Of The Battling Ropes Training System, Chain Reaction Program And Beyond Bodyweight Training
 

The Secret of Smart Muscle and The ‘Magic’ Combo…

Smart Muscle is what Jon Bruney refers to as muscle that is ready to take on any challenge because it has multiple qualities…

It’s big…

It’s strong…

It’s fast…

It’s supremely conditioned…

It’s basically the type of muscle that he himself needed – and successfully developed – to become one of the world’s elite performing strongmen.

The question is:

"How did Jon build smart muscle and how can he help you do the same?"

The Neuro-Mass program is unique in its approach because it combines 3 types of resistance training into one exponentially-powerful set…

Jon refers to these sets as ‘Neuro-Sets’.

And it’s these ‘Neuro-Sets’ that are the secret to SMART MUSCLE – the secret to building a body that is capable of overcoming ANY physical challenge.

Everything you need to know is explained in the Neuro-Mass program, but let us give you a quick overview of how these ‘Neuro-Sets’ work…
 

A ‘Neuro-Set’ Is Comprised Of…

  • A grinding movement
  • A speed/explosive movement
  • An isometric movement
And it’s this trio that Jon calls the ‘Magic Combination’.
 
Sure heavy grinds have been used for a long time to build huge STRENGTH…

And explosive exercises have been used to build speed and power…

And isometrics have been used to build static strength… But they have never been combined into one non-stop set – the ‘Neuro-Set’. And it’s only when you combine them in the CORRECT WAY that the magic happens!

You grow MUSCLE very, very quickly…

You build eye-popping STRENGTH…

You become way FASTER and way more EXPLOSIVE…

And you gain the type of CONDITIONING usually reserved for ELITE endurance athletes…

Bottom line?

You look good, you feel unstoppable and you build a level of ATHLETICISM the Gods would envy…

Interested?

"The mind of Jon Bruney is something quite special and Neuro-Mass is nothing short of spectacular. For those looking to push beyond average, this will take you there." —AJ Roberts, All-Time World Record Holder in Powerlifting
 

Proceed With Caution -This Isn’t For Wimps and Wussies…

So far it’s all sounded pretty good…right?

Build more muscle, get way stronger, become faster and way more powerful and gain superhuman conditioning… all in just 3 hours training – or less – per week.

But there is something you should know…

This program is HARD.

It requires you to train intensely.

It will make you uncomfortable.

It’s not for wimps and wussies.

When legendary powerlifter and strength coach MARTY GALLAGHER experienced Neuro-Mass – he loved it because he knew he was experiencing something truly NEW and revolutionary in the world of strength and conditioning.

But Marty also said:

"It’s not for Sissies"

So are YOU up for the CHALLENGE?

Are you ready to train HARD for just 3-4 hours a week in the pursuit of more muscle, strength, speed, power and conditioning?...

In pursuit of your best body ever?

If you are, read on…

If you aren’t – no big deal. Go find an ‘easy’ training program and accept the inferior results that come with it. Your call.

"Neuro-Mass is right up my alley—and what I love to see other strength and power athletes following. It's also a blueprint for those who want to develop a strong, durable body, one that not only looks strong, but truly is strong. Prepare to push yourself out of your comfort zone and remember, that is exactly what it takes if you are into results!"—ZACH EVEN–ESH, Founder, The Underground Strength Gym
 

Bodyweight and Kettlebells Can Make You Very Strong, Very Muscular and Very Athletic…

Aside from building monster muscle, strength, speed, power and conditioning – another benefit of the Neuro-Mass program is that you only need 2 things to do it…

Your bodyweight…

And a few Kettlebells…

And if you don’t have any Kettlebells, don’t worry – Jon provides tons of exercises in Neuro-Mass that use just your bodyweight.

What this means is that you can perform this program at home OR at the gym.

When you see the list of exercises Jon has put together in Neuro-Mass – using just your bodyweight or Kettlebells – you will be amazed.

Some of the exercises you will have seen before, others you won’t.

And "YES" – some are just plain nasty.

The sledgehammer Push Up (one of the few optional exercises that require more than just your bodyweight or kettlebells) is one example of a NASTY exercise that Jon developed to build muscle and strength in your shoulders, triceps and chest.

Equally as important – it’ll build a rock-solid core, complete with strong, defined abs.

To see the entire Neuro-Mass Table of Contents, including all the exercises – click here

The bottom line is that Neuro-Mass:
  • Requires only your bodyweight and some Kettlebells (so you can train at home OR at the gym)
  • Is extremely versatile… there are so many exercises you will NEVER get bored
  • Will build incredible strength, muscle and athleticism by combining grinds, explosive exercises and isometrics into one giant set – what Jon calls the ‘Neuro-Set’
So that’s how the ‘Neuro-Set’ works…

A revolutionary way to combine grinds, speed work and isometrics. What Jon Bruney calls ‘the magical combination.’

When you try it – you’ll find out why he uses the word ‘magic!’

Will it build more muscle? YES

Will it build greater strength? YES

Will it make you faster and more explosive? YES

Will it make you more conditioned and ready for ANY physical challenge? YES

It is easy? Hell no!

But I told you that at the start ;)

And remember…

When it comes to improving your body – you can’t get something for nothing.

When you put the work in with Neuro-Mass, one thing is for sure…

You will get RESULTS.

BIG results.
 

Neuro-Mass Might Require You To Train Hard – But Really It’s ‘The EASY Way Out’…

How can Neuro-Mass require you to train intensely HARD and be ‘the easy way out’?

Good question.

Here’s your answer…

It’s true – Neuro-Mass will be hard work. You’ll put your body through tough training sessions…

You’ll sweat…

Your muscles will burn…

At times you might think "Why the heck am I doing this to myself?"

But then you’ll look in the mirror and you’ll see more muscle

You’ll see less body-fat

You’ll notice that your weights are going up week by week as you get stronger and stronger…

If you play a sport – you’ll realise that your increased speed and power is making you a better athlete…

And you’ll find challenges that require a ‘pair of lungs’ get easier and easier because Neuro-Mass builds huge work capacity.

Now here’s the thing…

You’re going to notice ALL that whilst training only 3-4 times a week for 45-60 minutes at a time!

And that’s why I say Neuro-Mass is the EASY way out. Maximum results in minimum time… efficient training.

That’s what you get with Neuro-Mass.

The truly hard thing is doing what most ‘fitness enthusiasts’ and gym rats do – jumping from one training program to another every few weeks and as a result, never really seeing any RESULTS.

That’s the truly HARD approach to physical training… Spending a lot of time ‘working out’ and having little – if anything – to show for it!

So if you’re sick and tired of searching for the best training program – STOP and give Neuro-Mass a try because you’re gonna freakin’ love the results!...

HUGE RESULTS, training 3 hours a week at the most.

That’s the Neuro-Mass way.
 

Why Should You Trust Jon Bruney?

"I love Neuro-Mass! Books like this are the reason Dragon Door remains the world’s finest strength and conditioning publisher. Jon’s knowledge of advanced strength and muscle-building strategies is just off the scale. The training tactics in Neuro-Mass go from cutting edge, to ancient, to downright strange and arcane—and the principles here all work like hell for weights or bodyweight training. If you are looking to inject some nitrous into your program, buy this book today. There’s a lifetime of knowledge in here, and trust me, you can forget about finding most of this on the internet."—PAUL WADE, author of Convict Conditioning

There are a lot of training programs out there written by individuals with very little expertise.

Neuro-Mass is the opposite…

It’s written by Jon Bruney – a man with huge expertise… a man who ‘walks the walk’ when it comes to physical transformation.

Jon is a world-class, world-renowned performing strongman and his incredible feats of STRENGTH have been immortalized in Ripley's Believe it or Not and shown nationwide on NBC's The Today Show.

Thousands of people have personally experienced Jon's jaw-dropping "Pressing the Limits" motivational strength programs.

A true renaissance man in the realm of strength development, Jon Bruney is a world-class trainer, coach, motivational speaker and strongman.

Jon’s work with competitive athletes includes Olympians and NFL players.

He is the author of Foundations, a training series featured in MILO, widely considered the world's most prestigious strength training journal.

Jon is a veteran of numerous trainer certification courses including Battling Ropes Level Two and Controlled Fatigue Training.

So to answer the original question – why should you trust Jon Bruney? – I say this…

Because elite athletes trust him…

Because the greatest strength training journal in the world trusts him…

Because he designs equipment that athletes around the world use to improve themselves…

And well - I think you get the idea.

Jon Bruney is legit.

He knows his stuff.

And he can help you achieve physical peaks higher than you ever imagined via his Neuro-Mass training program. And that’s a FACT.

Jon Bruney offers some powerful solutions on how to develop real-world strength and fitness in a concise and practical manner that anyone can greatly benefit from implementing. The diversity of the drills in Neuro-Mass is extensive and allows any fitness level to begin to utilize these concepts."—JOSH HENKIN, Senior RKC, CSCS, Creator of DVRT Fitness System

"Jon Bruney's Neuro-Mass is ground-breaking both in vision and in practice. Jon offers a unique regimen that methodically triggers neuromuscular improvements while upgrading muscle fiber quality. The exercises are simple and effective as demonstrated by Jon himself." —ORI HOFMEKLER, Author of the Warrior Diet

"Neuro-Mass is a great workout program for people looking to combine weight training with bodyweight calisthenics. Jon Bruney presents a unique take on program design that will test both the body as well as the mind. If you're looking for maximum strength, who better to learn from than a world record-holding strongman?"—AL KAVADLO, author of Raising the Bar and Pushing the Limit

Neuro-Mass has it all... exercises you've never seen, exercises you've never tried and exercises that may scare you. Jon has meticulously combined all of these into routines which yield terrifyingly impressive results..."—MIKE GILLETTE, author of Savage Strength

"I haven’t tried the Neuro Mass training program – but I have read the book and was amazed by how clever the system Jon has come up with truly is.

Very good indeed."—ANDY BOLTON, the world’s first man to deadlift 1000lbs and author of multiple books on strength training, including Deadlift Dynamite

"There's a lot more to building muscle than just increasing the size. When you focus only on building mass you may wind up with a useless muscle that looks good but can't perform.

World-renowned strength athlete Jon Bruney addresses this problem head-on with his revolutionary Neuro-Sets. When you incorporate these sets from his new book Neuro-Mass you'll not only achieve the maximum hypertrophy you desire, but you'll train the nervous system to recruit more muscle fibers for the ultimate combination in size, strength AND athleticism.

Your nervous system is like the foundation of a house. The walls are your muscles. Sure the walls may look great, but without a foundation they won't be able to do their job. With Neuro-Mass you build a strong foundation that can support the athletic muscle you're constructing. The exercise section is very extensive and I learned a lot of new movements that have been really challenging & beneficial. The nutrition, recovery, breathing and warm up sections were cutting edge and ties everything together. I highly recommend this book. The author and the publisher are great stand-up people that want to help you live the best life possible so that you're full of energy, strength, vitality and confidence. The neuro-training explained in this book is brand new. I haven't seen anything like it anywhere else. Be among the first to reap the rewards and start…building muscle, increasing strength and becoming more athletic with Neuro-Mass!"—Mike Westerdal, President, CriticalBench
 

Frequently Asked Questions…

Question: Is Neuro-Mass suitable for beginners?

Absolutely. The Neuro-Mass training program is suitable for anybody. It’s been tried-and-tested on Olympians, top NFL players, MMA fighters, Basketball players, Strongmen and far less accomplished athletes too.

In fact, you’ll probably get better results if you are a beginner or intermediate athlete because you’re body isn’t yet working anywhere near its true potential.

Question: I don’t have Kettlebells – can I still use the Neuro-Mass program?

Yes, you can. You can easily substitute many of the Kettlebell exercises for Dumbbell or Barbell variations. And remember – there are bodyweight exercises in the program as well, so you are not just limited to the Kettlebell exercises.

Question: The Neuro-Mass program sounds great, but I like training with barbells. Can I incorporate them?


Yes you can. Very easily in fact.

Just substitute the Kettlebells for a barbell, where appropriate.

For instance, instead of the Double Kettlebell Front Squat – you could do a barbell Front squat.

Instead of the Double Kettlebell Bench Press – you could do the regular barbell Bench Press.

Jon gives you a ton of amazing Kettlebell and bodyweight exercises in the Neuro-Mass book – but the real magic is in the unique combination of grinds, explosive and isometric exercises that make up the ‘Neuro-Set’. And you can apply the principles that comprise a ‘Neuro-Set’ to any form of resistance training you like...

Rated 10/10 Some Assembly Required - But worth the effort
 
By Amber Lee / Boston, MA, USA

Let me start off with the really cool stuff. I've been introducing these methods to my clients since getting this book when it was released, and not only are they seeing results, they have REQUESTED a Neuro-Mass class be added to my schedule. My clients are not only seeing improvements in strength, but they are loving the challenge/play/brainwork nature of the exercises in this book. I'm lucky enough to have a gym full of thinkers, and they are eating this stuff up! (These guys also love Primal Move, so I'm a lucky gal!)

Now into the fuller review:
Neuro-Mass is not a book that hands you a complete, down-to-the-letter workout program in the back of the book that you follow without exception. And I'm fine with that. You've got to do your work with this book. Read through the exercises, note what you do, and don't have the equipment for, and what you can do in the space you have, then get cracking with a notepad or excel spreadsheet. That's where the magic happens. Personally, one of the most common times I see people fall off the wagon with a workout program is when it asks for equipment or space you don't have. "Oh, I didn't have X, so I just stopped". Well, problem solved. Just pick a different exercise to perform on that day! With adaptations for 1 or 2 kettlebells for most exercises, and also difficulty variations, along with the suggestions of min and max reps and sets, this should be enough to keep the biggest lover of variety busy for months, if not years.

 
Rated 10/10 This is the book I wish I would have had from day one
 
By Laura Robertson / Saint Anthony, MN, United States

The Effective Answer to Programing Design

Easy to use, plug and play guide to effective and exciting programming. I picked up this book Aug 23rd, before it was even offered online. I have had a early jump on the Neuro-Mass training effect. Once started there has been no turning back. My copy already has dog ears and multiple post it notes from continuous use. The wide range of clients I train have been both stoked and outraged. Their workouts have multiplied in physical stimulation and mental challenge. The book is layed out with 3 easy to apply concepts for program design GRINDS, DYNAMIC POWER DRILL, and ISOMETRICS. Each exercise is illustrated clearly making it easy to apply immediately.

Working with clients personal needs and goals has rocketed to a whole new level.
Planning classes for the masses takes a much less time by resourcing The Neuro-Mass extensive library of options.

I would recommend this book to any newcomer looking to quickly improve their knowledge of program design.
I would recommend this book to any colleague stuck in program monotony.
This is the book I wish I would have had from day one.

 
Rated 10/10 I'm Glad I Bought This Book
 
By Gareth Thomas / Auckland, New Zealand

Its a great book, not short at nearly 300 pages. The exercises are hard - definitely challenging and the type of training most people intuitively avoid.

This is one of the better dragondoor books & most of them are very good.

 
Rated 5/10 Not bad but disappointing
 
By Robert Aldrich / Chapel Hill, NC, United States

The book is okay, but it presents nothing new. The collection of exercises seems a little haphazard and poorly grouped (bodyweight exercises often rely on hammers, steps, medicine balls, and even a treadmill). There's no attention given to sequencing or progression; the premise seems built on a vague 'pick what's adequately hard' approach and that's it. There's nothing about cycling effort beyond the generic promise of 'you'll never plateau'.
The idea behind Neuro-Mass itself is fairly interesting - the three-tier work set that comprises a Neuro-set - but its not anything that hasn't already been explored by other writers. And because the results/goals are so very vague and ill-defined, it will be impossible to say whether or not the approach works particularly well or even better than more traditional approaches.
The book presents only about 10 pages of actual application and leaves you to essentially assemble the pieces. The vast majority of the book is just exercise descriptions (and there are some very interesting exercises in there).
The book falls short on every front. It isn't detail-oriented enough for a seasoned pro, nor is it clear enough for a novice. Theorists and aficionados may enjoy the premise of the three-tier work sets, but they've probably already read about it previously. Athletes needing a proscribed approach to a specific goal will likely find the book woefully lacking. All in all, Neuro-Mass definitely is not up to Dragon Door's usual standards and pales in comparison to Easy Strength, Convict Conditioning, or others.

 
Rated 7/10 Great Ideas, but somewhat Incomplete
 
By James Erickson / Gardena, CA, USA

There are a lot of great things in this system of training. I can definitely tell that I am getting results. I love how there is a very customizeable work-out set-up and how he shows you every work out you will probably ever need with this system. With that said there could definitely be more detail about neurological and muscular interactions and even possibly: hormone stimulation, nutrition, and how mind-states affect physiology; because I thought that is what this training system was about: applying that knowledge to a very keenly developed system. It seems to me like you would have to know that stuff already in order for this system to reach its maximum potential. It touches on one or two things that are definitely helpful in those areas, but if this system wishes to be the "ultimate system for spectacular strength" it would include all of the details of such things. This system has the "what" but it needs the "how" and "why".

 
Rated 8/10 Well put together
 
By Michael Fortin / Londonderry, USA

Anything I've gotten from Dragondoor is top notch, 2nd to none. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

 
Rated 10/10 Keira Newton Master RKC
 
By Keira Newton / Santa Fe, NM, usa

I love this book! An excellent book to add to your strength in a dynamic refreshing way. Love the ideas provided.

 
Rated 8/10 A New Approach
 
By Robert Storey / Noblesville, Indiana, United States

This was a really interesting approach to strength training. I had not thought of incorporating isometrics into my training before. It was been a great addition to help bring up my weak points.

 
Rated 9/10 Neuro-Mass Rocks
 
By Paul Lee / Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

An excellent book for folks looking to combine strength and explosiveness.
