Re: What Are Some Decent/No BS Bodybuilding Books?
Whilst I don't agree with everyone he says, Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is a very good book. It's not a 'bodybuilding book', but the best way to get bigger is to get stronger and it will definitely help with that. It teaches you the most important basic movements for growth. Whilst I say basic, the majority of people actually do them pretty poorly. Good investment for a beginner-intermediate lifter.
Arnie's encyclopaedia was the first training book I bought. It's got nice pictures and exercise ideas for a new trainer but I didn't rate it that highly compared to something like SS.
I dislike the guy for where he has taken his company, but some of original Poliquin's books are pretty good. It's been years since I read any of them so I can't remember the name. Download a free e-book from somewhere, he doesn't deserve anymore money with the amount of bs he sells these days!
