Practical Programming for Strength Training, 3rd edition

There is a difference between Exercise and Training. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for the effect it produces today, during the workout or right after you’re through. Training is physical activity done with a longer-term goal in mind, the constituent workouts of which are specifically designed to produce that goal. Training is how athletes prepare to win, and how all motivated people approach physical preparation.

Practical Programming for Strength Training 3rd Edition addresses the topic of Training. It details the mechanics of the process, from the basic physiology of adaptation to the specific programs that apply these principles to novice, intermediate, and advanced lifters.

    This deserves a review from at least 1 person. I have bought a copy of this book in print and the audible edition. The audible edition being narrated by none other than the man himself, Mark Rippetoe.

    I’m telling you the information in this book is something you can find yourself. All you have to do is search countless hours on the internet, or talk on a forum to various internet “lifting experts” while comparing what they’ve said to numerous reputable sources (whatever those are.)

    You can do all those things (which I’ve done) and trade your time for a lot of jumbled information that you can piece together yourself and find when it applies to you and your lifting lifestyle. Or, you can buy this book.

    This books will give you all the information you’ll need up to an advanced level of lifting and save you your valuable time. You could waste time sifting through sand for broken glass, bottle caps, and cat turds. Or you can buy this gold nugget for $25.
