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 coaching and the iron and whose piercing analysis of many of the issues, if not all, relating to strength make you feel as though you have been privy to an oracle!

Starting Strength was very good, but this is even better. I can only recommend this book and hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
