    Best Fitness Books

    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"

    "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!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    - 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.
