A Couple Books to Read

Literally a couple. Two.


Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. Read it. Even if you’re not planning to do the program, it will teach you the main lifts (deadlift, squat, overhead press and bench press). Read it. Read it now.



5/3/1 – The Simplest and Most Effective Training System for Raw Strength by Jim Wendler. This is the lifting program I’m currently using myself. There is also a version of the book specifically for powerlifting. Read that one, if you want to be a powerlifter (or strong like one).


The Kindle editions for both books are $9.99. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem. You can just download Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac for free. Then you can read the Kindle versions of both books on your computer.
