Default Strength/Powerbuilding E-Books...What's Missing?

What would you like to see in a strength/powerbuilding e-book?

Curious what areas you feel are lacking in most.

If I were a newb shopping around -a program that offered several different " work outs" and long term meal plans.... I know these are very personalized things but for the time strapped ( or ADD) new lifter this would help a lot


From an intermediate lifter standpoint...... I would like to see more info on pre hab / rehab and sof tissue work. Specifics, beyond " foam roll"

I would love to see:

a solid base of strength training fundamentals including fequency, intensity, nutrition, recouperation.

Good and diverse PL training programs. Many times you see programs that look almost the same. And, if it's all the very top freaks - Green, Lilliebridge, etc. - it starts to look 'Weider' (you know what I mean Steve-O).

Lastly, I don't think you can have a legit book without discussing PEDs.

My 'dos pesos'.

Interested in why you think the book cant be legit without discussing PED? Its not a topic I am well versed in compared to most, and I would never even think of putting it in a book (I am not an expert). Wondering if others feel its important to discus it as well.

Good question JB. I don't think it should be a 'tell all' but addressing the issue, stating the wide use, indicating the risks and lack thereof, and underlining the fact that it's a personal choice will be a welcome change.
I chois to be drug free but that wasn't always the case. I'm friends with several who use PEDs. I think at some level it should be addressed.
And, Steve asked for opinions. So there you go- just one old, fat man's opinion

As someone who has no experience with PED's at all.....

I would definately be interested in reading a well written, non biased, commentary on the subject..... a PED primer, if you will.

Yeah me too, I am not 100% on what PED's even are, but I'm keen to learn.

Things I wish I knew about (earlier on) and I think they should be written about,


Assistance exercises and lift orders,

There are no secrets that you need both of those things, and in proper order, however I have read many E book and it is never really mentioned why you are to do a specific exercise. The plan is laid down in front of you and the expectation is to just follow it, but if you have no idea what you are doing, how can you believe in it ?. Particularly when you start to google programs and then you just get completely overwhelmed and lose the battle.


How and why training works,

Example, when you read Sandbox's log, it is at the minimal end of things, and it works well, When you read Ravi's log it is at the other end of the spectrum completely and it works well also. Both of these dudes are strong as ox's, yet there training is totally different.

Another example is Doug Hepburns Program A Vs the classic 5x5 Vs 531 Vs 20 rep squats etc, All these programs will make you Huge and unhumanly strong but they are all so very different. Why ?



Cheers Ya'll

Oh, Performance Enhancing Drugs.

I would like to see not only a bunch of programs but a real method to learn how to coach myself or anyone based on real-life coaching experience of different trainers, how to identify weak links and address them, how to avoid injuries and recover from them.
