    A great place to get the information you need to truly get the most out of your lifting. Highly recommend it to anyone, whether they are writing their own programs, or if they have a trainer. Understand the principles contained here will give them a leg up.

    An excellent read! Training is the fun part but what happens outside the gym is crucial. So, it’s like learning a new language. I appreciate the book very much because it’s gives one a direction of where to go.
    Spending time to read and learn it, will save you a lot of effort and anxiety.

    My only regret is not reading this book sooner! This is a must-read for anyone serious about strength training.

    I learned a lot about aspects of fitness that often aren’t talked about, like problems over-training and the importance of a deload.

    This book has already changed how I think about my training and approach every lift — whether it’s choosing the right accessories, selecting the right wights for each phase of the training cycle, etc.

    Highly recommend!

    The book begins at basics, so in the beginning you might feel you now already all of it. But chapter by chapter the book builds on previous on chapters and deepens that understanding. And somewhere along the way you’ll discover something new. Be it a mindset, how to think about something, or more factual, there’s something new to be learned. Great book. Will not regret buying it!
