Maximum Muscle Minimum Fat The Secret Science Behind Physical Transformation

Diet and fitness books appear at a dizzying rate – and with a wealth of dubious claims – in a culture facing increasing health problems based on a sedentary lifestyle.

Written for the widest readership–competitive athletes, bodybuilders, trainers, martial artists, sports nutritionists and coaches, dieters, and anyone concerned about their health–the book builds on the concepts popularized in The Warrior Diet.

One of the nation’s elite strength and conditioning coaches presents a unique training program designed to help men achieve functional strength and muscular balance throughout their bodies For decades, the conventional measure of an individual’s strength was the amount of weight he could bench press.

Overview: This is a STRENGTH book, not a book on bodybuilding/body sculpting (hence the name “Starting Strength”. I can’t emphasize enough you need to know what you are training for before you commit to a book purchase and exercise routine. This book is focuses on strength and nothing else, hypertrophy may be a side of affect of strength but is not the goal, nor is the goal to produce shapely well defined muscles and washboard abs. This book is written by a power lifter (Rippetoe) for strength and power and that’s it.

Pros:
