Thanks for replies. Been suggested martin rooneys stuff?

Google “Bradley Steiner Powerlifting Article” and you’ll get a link to one of my favorite no-nonsense lifting to get big and strong articles.

I like his writing in general. Another good one of his was: “Hard Work on Basic Exercises”

Another interesting read is “Super Strength” by Alan Calvert.

It was written in the very very early days of bodybuilding. The advice given in that book is probably best read as “how to become a circus strongman… and also look good”. A lot of things written around that time could probably be classified as strongman-bodybuilding (in the circus strongman sense, not the modern sense), just like a lot of later writing could be classified as weightlifter-bodybuilding.

Probably the best way to read that book is to take what you currently know about lifting and nutrition, and see what he has to say on those same things.

Thanks alot for replies i got martin rooney warrior cardio and enjoying it so far picking up the odd info!

Heard pf super strength…

Here’s a link to a non-competing site that has the text and images from Super Strength.

While I wouldn’t recommend following any of his advice at face value, a lot of the core ideas are still very good.
