Programming (Workouts) Books

I’m looking for a few good books on “Programming” workouts. Can any of you suggest any? Thanks


Both of Thib’s have tons of applicable information.

Thib’s E-books right? I’ll look into it. Thanks.

I’d recommend “Practical Programming” by Mark Rippetoe. It’s a good book laying out the basics, and a bit more, of programming for strength.

Rippetoe’s technique recommendations in “Starting Strength” aren’t as good, but they are much better than most.

Second on this suggestion. The book is a phenomenal piece of work. So is Pavel…

Pavel’s book doesn’t give you that much about programming though, mainly just little tricks and some small templates to use. It’s an interesting read though. It’s more like a collection of articles than a book.
