What to do After a Beginner’s Strength Training Program

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Someone emailed me asking what they could do after a beginner’s strength training routine no longer works for them (that is, they are not capable of increasing the weight on the bar as fast as they could before when starting out). Eventually, all beginners will progress into an “intermediate stage”. This is when the body needs more volume per period to stimulate the nervous system.

The next step in the series of books I recommend is called “Practical Programming for Strength Training” by an infamous coach. It’s available on Amazon or the book’s website.

Please note that the above is an opinion and a recommendation/review on a book I have read. This site and its content has nothing to do with Mark Rippetoe, Lon Kilgore or The Aasgard Company.

Book Review: Starting Strength, 3rd Edition Released

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Looks like the 3rd Edition of the book is out. If you never bought the first or second edition, what are you waiting for? ­čÖé

Reading the comments on Amazon’s page, I think there’s a major improvement in the illustrations of the book, along with certain explanations being rewritten to be more clear and concise. This holiday, you should do someone a favour and get them the new book and DVD┬átogether!
