Question concerning the inclusion of Stuart Robert's material:
I have read a lot ( much of it on MAB) that suggest Stuart's info may not be solid or that he tends to limit what a lifter can an cannot accomplish with the training he suggests.... Any one have an informed opinion? For the record, I am somewhat of a Newb and am only asking so I may learn.

I gave my wife a copy of this list and she has bought me, 5 of the list so far. She's great and I am becoming better informed. LOL

I like it. Articles are short, sweet and to the point. A lot of varying topics.

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.
