Ian King's The Book of Muscle


This book is a must have for anyone looking to build the best body they can possibly build.One of my favorite paragraphs in the book is- Though muscles are capable of growing more quickly than connective tissues are able to,the former cant get bigger until the latter do.

So its convenient that,as you'll recall from chapter three,muscles get stronger before they get bigger. Stronger muscles pull harder on the connective tissues,which then grow in response to that increased demand,and the bigger connective tissues finally allow the muscles to grow. If this paragraph gets your attention go pick up the book you want regret it. Retail $35 Barnes and Noble.
