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've read Rippetoes other two books and I actually didn't even know about this one until I found it cruising on Amazon. Excellent book just like the previous ones he wrote. The book is very easy to read and you don't have to have a PhD or have an extensive lifting background to read and appreciate the book. It helps if you do lift weights and want to get better but still anyone can read it. This is a great book to arm yourself against the fitness idiots of the USA that think training should be short, easy or solely based on aerobic training.

Pick up this book it is an excellent read. In fact pick up anything the man writes. Just about everything I've ready I can use to coach, train myself or if I wanted to write a paper in school if I were to get my masters.
