I'm somewhat of a beginner still and I'm looking for a new book or something for training. It could be anything for training (probably not a supplement) but I'm 14 and on a limited budget. I would probably spend $30-$50 depending on how good it is and if it were really great I could spend more, plus I have a birthday coming up along with Christmas.
I'm looking at something like Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe for $30 or Black Book of Training Secrets by Christian Thibaudeau for $40. Micheal Boyle also has a book called Functional Training for Sports that is $13.57 new or a little less used so maybe I could get that and another book. I'm kinda leaning towards Starting Strength but I don't know much about it and figured you guys would know more. You guys have any ideas for me?
Just so you know I play baseball, basketball, and football. Powerlifting might eventually interest me but it's not my main concern right now. I weigh around 190 pounds, my parents are planning on getting a new scale because the one we're having to use now is really unreliable. My bench is embarrassing at ~130 and I can squat 230 pounds according to 1 rep max calculators. Your advice is greatly appreciated.
