What fitness books are you guy's favorites? I am probably going to go out and buy 2 or 3, which do you recommend?
These may be either lifting books, or diet books, or whatever.
I am going to get Natural Hormonal Enhancement.
What do you like?
If your a science buff then go out about buy "Power: A scientific approach" by Dr. Fred Hatfield and/or "Bodybuilding: A scientific approach" again by Dr. Fred Hatfield. Excellent books, IMO. Oh yeah and the "Anabolic Primer"
I don't mean to be rude but if you do a search you'll find a couple posts on this topic.

"Soli Deo Gloria"
"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
"Judo is not about strength. Yet in the learning curve, all Judokas get strong. Only with time do you learn where to apply that strength."
The Art of Judo
- Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning
- Supertraining by Siff
- Science and Practice of Strength Training by Zatsiorsky
- The Weightlifting Encyclopedia by Drechsler
- Exercise Physiology by Powers and Howley
You'd have to special order most of those. If I were only going to hvae one book it would be the Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning. Plus you should have a good anatomy and physiology textbook. But the books TreeTrunks recommended are good too and you won't have to pay $50+ for them.
