Today, for the first time in many many months, I walked into a Barnes and Noble. My goal? To find a few GOOD books on Strength training and weightlifting.
Brother Iron, Sister Steel? Pffft, no thank you. Its written with the brains of a dumb blonde with more opinionated arguments than factual ones.
Anatomy of Strength Training? Interesting book, very well depicted, but again a little basic - all information I already had.
Body for Life? I shit on thee.
However, one book shined like a piece of gold. Tudor Bompa’s Periodization training for sports. As I opened this book I saw the most factual, well researched book Ive laid my hands on. It deserves all the credit it received. At 19.95 it was a bargain when you compare its outstanding picture and paper quality as well as the way it was written, with Poliquin’s Principles picture quality, poor paper quality, excuseless errors at roughly 30 bucks.
This guy knows his stuff. I will be doing much reading tonight. Any GOOD books on weightlifting? Share!!!
