    "Lift Strong" CD Review

    So I bought the Lift Strong CD from EliteFTS. The cost was 24.95 with no shipping costs. Figured even if it was crappy that at least my money was going to a good cause.


    I haven't read all the articles (~60), though I've read through a couple and glanced quickly at others. There are quite a few articles from some of the biggest names. Lyle McDonald has a training article, Mark Phillipi has an article that was written with Ed Coan. There is a mini book on coaching/training Olympic Lifts. There's also a pretty good article about the spine and keeping it healthy. Being a motivational as well as informative CD, there is of course a couple of non technical articles that provide more of an insight into gaining the right sort of mindset. So far I'm very happy with the purchase. It isn't going to have the effect that Starting Strength or Super Training has, but it is a good solid compilation of training literature. Some of the topics have some information that is kind of bland and along the "duh" lines, but it also has articles that are more specialized, such as training women with anemia. Overall a lot of good solid information in the bits and pieces I have read so far. Would recommend everybody, beginner and the more advanced lifter, to pick it up. Even if you're a know it all (we seem to have an abundant amount on this board) the money goes to a great cause.

    CDs don't just store audio files. You can store a massive amount of written files. All of the articles are stored in pdf format on the CD, I'm assuming to keep costs as low as possible.

    I'm still waiting on my copy to arrive. I don't actually care if the cd is in pieces when I get it either, I'll just donate again.
