Strong Enough? Thoughts on Thirty Years of Barbell Training

There are lots of things about weight training in general and barbell exercise in particular that can only be learned by spending way too many hours in the gym. And honestly, unless you are a gym owner, this is a really weird way to spend 75 hours a week. Mark Rippetoe has been in the fitness industry since 1978 and has owned a black-iron gym since 1984. He knows things about lifting weights and training for performance that most other coaches and professionals have never had a chance to learn. This book of essays offers a glimpse into the depths of experience made possible through many years under the bar, and many more years spent helping others under the bar.

I love this book, because it answers my questions and really explains things to me that had been bothering me. I know a reasonable amount about training with weights and have some mileage behind me too and, yet, there are always questions; things that just bug you from time-to-time that startlingly not even the great internet god can answer.

Mark Rippetoe writes lucidly, at times technically, but always accessibly and even sometimes with humour. A man who has dedicated his life to [...read more]

I just started getting into barbell training when I read this book on the advice of my trainer. The book is very dense with critically needed information on correct lifting techniques. Rippetoe is refreshingly humorous and entertaining in his writing style, while staying on-subject.

I'm a slow reader, and I finished this book very quickly because it was such a fun read.
One of the Greatest Strength Book Out There,

Strong Enough is truly one of the greatest strength book I have ever read and I have a huge collection (100's). This book covers all sorts of topics and unravels them with a "this is it, if you don't like go read something else" attitude.

You will get a wealth of information from this book all of which [...read more]
