Books You Should Read in Your Lifetime
Books You Should Read in Your Lifetime

By Bill Hinbern

Today I received several phone calls and emails asking me to list what I thought were the best books I had ever read on training.

A tough list, indeed...

But nevertheless, if I had to come up with a list of books that I personally feel would catapult you head and shoulders above the average trainee...

That would literally save you hours, days, weeks, months, even years of wasted effort and grief. Not to mention wear and tear on your joints...

I would have to say the following would fit the bill.

But Steven, even if you took the time to seriously read half of these books and retained the information that they contain, you would make huge strides and experience mental and physical changes the likes of which you wouldn't

So, here is the list in alphabetical order by the author's last name:

1. Super Strength
by Alan Calvert

2. Progressive Resistance Exercise
by Dr. Thomas L. DeLorme M.D.
and Dr. Arthur L. Watkins M.D.

3. The Way to Live
by George Hackenschmidt

4. Wrestling Physical Conditioning Encyclopedia
by John P. Jesse

5. The Key to Might and Muscle
by George F. Jowett

6. Dinosaur Training
by Brooks Kubik

7. Gray Hair and Black Iron
by Brooks Kubik

8. Strength, Muscle and Power
by Brooks Kubik

9. The Complete Keys to Progress
by John McCallum

10. Strength & Bulk Training for Weight Lifters & Body Builders
by Reg Park

11. The Production of Muscular Bulk
by Michael J. Salvati

12. The Text Book of Weight-Lifting
by Arthur Saxon

13. Super Squats
by Randall J. Strossen Ph. D.

To read more about each of these books, go to the following page:

Super Strength Training Books and Courses

And if you don't believe these books are that good, just ask anyone who has read them.

The feedback that I've received over the years, tells me that each and every one has been chosen for very good reasons as the favorite of hundreds of trainees.

Until the next time...

Not actually a book on training, but a very motivational book, "Seal of Honor" about the military history of Navy Seal Lt. Patrick M. Murphy. He recieved the medal of honor for his actions in operation Redwing in June 2005 in Afghanistan.

The part that is relative to physical training is the discription of BUDS training Navy seals go through. When the sets get tough....just think of Lt. Murph. "Quit" was not in his vocabulary.
