Health and Fitness Books

Hi everyone,

Can anyone recommend some good books based on fitness, bodybuilding, routines, exercise science and the like? I love reading the articles on here, and they are amazingly informative. However I would now like to get much more in-depth,

I am thinking of enrolling on a sports and exercise science course and would like to study up a little beforehand.

Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this kind of thing, I am all Googled out!

(My training routine had to take a back seat due to having broke both my legs but thats a whole other story, lol)

Keep up the good work folks!

    For routines go check out Ice machs posts. He is the most helpful person on a site ever. He doesnt even get agitated if you ask dumbass questions either.

    Diet info read toxics articles.

    T-nation.com is a good source of information too.

    I would give johnberardi.com 's article section a good seeing too also.

    If your looking for degree level information (which WILL NOT be bodybuilding related) you're likely to use:

    Wilmore and Costill (Exercise Physiology)

    Eston and Reilly (Lab prep etc)

    Zatsiorsky (Science and Practice)

    Tudor Bompa (Serious strength training)

    Depends what your looking for really.

    Ice you can email that info to me You know if you really want to!!

    FirebladeX11@aol.com

    Zatsiorsky (Science and Practice) Many references to the studies contained in this book are sited in magazines and articles.

    SCN trained with kev the other day, haha tried new ab workout circuit and exercises rope crunches with exercise ball. He put the weight on too high and went flying across the gym. Twas hilarious.

    Hi again, I would just like to say that I am very pleased with the positive response from the MT commmunity. I will definitely look into all the book titles mentioned.

    Davedarave01uk and JWR, I agree that the articles and information posted by users on this site are fantastic, but I can't take my desktop PC with me to the park and my laptop would probably get nicked, especially as I can't give chase at the moment lol

    Ice_mach, I would appreciate any info that you could pass on, as long as it is no trouble for you

    Desiging Resistance Training Programs. Fleck and Kraemer 0873225082 (£33 approx)

    Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning. Beachle and Earle. 0736000895 (£45 approx)

    For Exercise Physiology I prefer McKardle, Katch and Katch due to the writing style.

    The two top books are very detailed and contain lots of information.

    Great recommendations.

    You could also looki into Mel siffs work, but its not exactly reader friendly and if you havent got the science back up then id leave well alone.

    Powers and Howley also have a good exercise physiology book, with plenty of useable training info (Not bbuild related mind you)..
