Some great books on periodisation in weight liftin

A while back I was recommended by a top level US strength and olympic lifting coach the following books, which are basically brilliant:

Zatsiorsky - The science and practice of strength training.Tudor Bompa's Serious Strength training. Thereafter, Mel Siff's book - Supertraining is a great choice. The weightlifting encyclopedia by Arthur Dreschler is a good read after you have read the aforementioned as you realize that many people can excel with entirely different training regimens.....it also causes you to wonder how much science there is to weight training.

Thereafter, you might seek out the russian texts by roman, verkoshansky, and medvedyev which are available through Bud Chanigra's website

When you finish these books, you will have read 99% of what there is to learn about modern strength training. Of course, understanding it is very different! Haha, but that comes with time.

If you are starting out read these to death, and you'll have a massive advantage in your training career.

Also throw out any and all bodybuilding magazines - they are cods wallop

    Yeah I admit Tudor Bompa's periodisation is a little outdated, but I found it informative, anyway it's great to see people know of these authors!
