Your top 5 titles that you'd recommend

In no specific category, what are the top 5 favourite books you own based on strength training? (Anything from grip training to powerlifting)

I'm looking to grab a few, but some recommendations would be nice.

**Just like to add I already own Dino Training**

    Rock, Iron, Steel by Steve Justa

    I'm enjoying Mastery of Hand Strength by John Brookfield ( about 3/4 through it )

    Ultimate Training for the Ultimate Warrior by Ross Enamait

    Incidentally i've read the Iron Man encyclopedia and thought it was rubbish. I also read Brawn ten years ago and thought it was rubbish. Although I might think different of Brawn if I read it now because my view of training has changed in that time.

    I got a few others for Xmas mate and i'll let you know if they are any good...

    For Christmas I got the two Brookfield books, Keys to Progress, Getting Stronger by Bill Pearl and Suoer Squats ( I've got a big family :) ).

    This is the contents of the Steve Justa book which should help you mate :

    1 - Lifting for Strenght or endurance
    2 - Carrying weight
    3 - Dragging or pushing weight : g-force training
    4 - Power aerobic isometrics
    5 - runing with weight
    6 - Singles build tremendous strength
    7- The hand and thigh lift or the quarter deadlift
    8 - the back lift
    9 - Partial movements
    10 - the shovel or pitchfork lift
    11 - barrel lifting
    12 - training philosophy and attack plan
    13 - gaining strength at any age
    14 - personal lifting records

    The book is 104 pages in length and is written in a very easy to understand style. I think every serious strength trainee should own this book.

    Interesting boxer - that Justa book you mentioned seems like a good read.

    It's close out of that and Keys to progress, alongside Mastery Of Hand Strength (Definately buying this no matter what)

    Decisions, decisions...

    I'm 33 pages through Keys to Progress. This book is brilliant. This is the only weight training book that has ever made me laugh out loud several times already. I love the guys writing style.

    I know it doesn't sound as if I am very far through the book but the print is quite small and the pages quite large compared to most training books which makes the book better value for money.

    Keys to Progress is a collection of articles by John McCallum that were printed in the late 60's and early 70's but the information in there is still very sound.


    I haven't read the Grip Masters Manual yet but i've had a flick through the book and as the title suggests this book seems to be for the advanced grip guys.

    Where can you get these books from? You can get most on Amazon but ones
    like Dino Training, Super Squats and Mastery Of Hand Strength they don't
    sell anymore.

    It is a fantastically well written book and very funny. Also it is mostly spot on which surprises some as the articles are 30 - 40 years old!
    However that hgh protein - high set program pages 60 - 62 i tried this a posted about it on this site, i wanted to test it and see if it was possible, i am not sure it is, i was overtrained in no time flat![xx(]
