As a beginner, you owe it to yourself to read these books. They are classics, and are written by experienced natural coaches. These books promote simple, basic and effective training.

It is up to you how you train. We must all learn our bodies and evolve training to fit our needs. This thread does not exist to promote any style of training. It exists to educate you on mainstream training ideas that you may never have heard about.

Purchase these books, study these books and try the workouts in these books. They will help you much more then any muscle mag routine or article.
