    good book for learning the sport

    Besides just working out for the passed 6 months I have enjoyed increasing my knowledge of the sport. Want to learn things like why we train the way we train regarding rep range sets. Just looking for a book that will help me better understand all the practices that are preached on this forum to increase my knowledge so maybe one day I feel comfortable enough to develop a worthy routine for myself.

    Hm, I am not sure on what books you could pick up. Try reading articles online, they are very useful and fun to read. If you are looking for good routines, this website has great routines for beginners, and useful information such as tips, techniques and all that good stuff. http://www.weight-lifting-info.com/f...-routines.html You should really think about getting started, its a great feeling and its a lot of fun!
    Thank the Lord for everything.

    I've been working out with a wbb routine for 4 months and weight lifting for a year and a half onand off before that. The year and a half were custom junk routines I learned from weight training class. I love and trust the advice from everyone on the site and forums and everyone is great. I was just looking to find out the more in depth aspects of the sport. Basically the science behind what has become proven as effective such as exercies, volume, rest days, rest between sets. I guess for now ill stick to absorbing what I can from the forums in an attempt to advance my knowledge.

    What sport are you talking about? Bodybuilding?

    You are probably better off reading a number of articles from different authors if you are looking for broad based knowledge with regard to weight training.

    If you want to learn more about the basics of lifting weights, designing routines, and building muscle 'naturally', then I would recommend Beyond Brwan by Stuart McRobert.
