Product Overview

The second edition of my popular training book is now available!

After a grueling two years of work, the 2nd edition of my, "Encyclopedia of Muscle & Strength" by Human Kinetics, is now available in both paperback and digital versions.

Not only will it provide you a crash course in weight-training science, but it will arm you with the ability to build your own programs or at the very least teach you how to modify mine to better fit your needs.

Chapter 1 of my book covers the basic science and principles of strength training. In Chapter 2, you learn about the five main variables that make up every workout. Chapter 3 introduces you to the concept of training cycles. And Chapter 4 gives you a rundown on literally every piece of equipment that you can use for strength training.

Part II of the book covers everything you need to know about training for muscle mass. This includes training splits to use and a simple yet effective way to design a program for each major muscle group based on your training experience. It also provides dozens of short-term training programs that are broken down by the training variable that’s manipulated, as well as long-term programs that cover you for a full year. Part III of the book covers all of the specifics mentioned above, but in regards to training for maximizing muscle strength.

It also spends a good deal of time discussing specifics for increasing your strength on the three core exercises: bench press, squat, and deadlift. Part IV dives into training for fat loss with techniques for both weight training and cardio, as well as my very popular fat-burning programs. Between Parts II, III and IV you get over 115 training programs.

Part V provides over 380 exercises that are broken down into the muscle groups targeted, as well as whole-body exercises and calisthenics exercises. Part VI finishes out the book with nutrition and dietary supplement strategies for both maximizing muscle growth and for fat loss.

After reading my "Encyclopedia of Muscle & Strength" you will basically have an honorary PhD in the science of resistance training. In fact, many university strength training courses use this book as required reading for the course.
