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.

The product description states "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 Mr. Rippetoe has done just that.

His willingness to share the type of information that can only be earned the hard way, by training, competing, and training others to the highest level of success is within these pages and presented in a meaningful and useful manner that reflects Mark's well-known and often caustic sense of humor.
Forget the "get abs in thirty days" hype and the concept that biceps and ab muscles equates to fitness, health, and strength. The real information is in Strong Enough? and its useable NOW, enjoyable NOW, and necessary NOW in a culture awash with the notion that you don't have to work hard to improve.
