A Few Thoughts

A few thoughts now and again about whatever occurs to me while going through whatever books I end up reading

The New Rules of Lifting: Six Basic Moves for Maximum Muscle

The New Rules of Lifting: Six Basic Moves for Maximum Muscle - Lou Schuler, Alwyn Cosgrove When it comes to getting stronger, this one doesn't hold a candle to masterpieces like [b:Starting Strength|15746753|Starting Strength|Mark Rippetoe|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1350664231s/15746753.jpg|2104162], but this is a good overview of a lot of important concepts and it's written in an engaging way.

It also serves a market of people who aren't necessarily after getting stronger (perhaps they just want to look strong or lose fat). I would argue that being actually strong helps with either of those goals, but that hardly negates the book itself.

An enjoyable read.
