    What is the best powerlifting book?

    I need a powerlifting book to get my max lifts up.

    Books on westside or other styles will be useful.

    It needs to be a specialist book on powerlifting, not a book on bodybuilding, or 'strength training', or 'explosive training for sports', or 'conditioning'.

    Please tell me what is good about your book.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately barbells will work better than books for getting your max lifts up

    Books dont make you strong

    I would read the stickies and follow one of the methods in there...with a barbell not a book

    Knowledge is power...however, everything you need to know is on this forum.
    The best training information is in articles on the internet.

    A book is not going to tell you anything more.


    How about you ask a specific question

    as per "other styles"...

    http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...?m=PD&pid=2976

    http://www.google.com/products/catal...d=0CCgQ8wIwAg#(don't own it, but it may contain texas method and other variants...anyone to confirm?)

    there are plenty of resources online though that you could just print out and bind. some great programs i know of i discovered online and not in a book. in fact the following are programs i haven't found a book for: smolov, sheiko, ed coan bench, ortmayer/magnusson deadlift, any number of russian squat programs, etc.
    --
    edit:
    link 1: 5/3/1 book. versatile program. everything is laid out for you; its simple.
    link 2: SS book. form is covered very in depth (which alone can bring numbers up). simple.

    neither of these books are explicitly powerlifting books. but they both contain useful information for putting together an effective routine, and 5/3/1 also has a section on form and lift mechanics. though you asked for exclusively powerlfiting templates, it was hard to find any other than these, or what were mentioned above. to reiterate, a lot of great information is floating around online, and merely has to be consolidated to create an effective program.

    The book "Practical Programing" was a real good read. It contains alot of info on periodization espically the Texas Method and the 2 different Madcows/Bill Starr programs. The Westside book of Methods and Wendlers 5/3/1 are supposed to be great also (did not read yet). IMO a full understanding and proper application of the program you select is way more important than which one you choose.
    I have no E-stats to post but this is my Journal:

    The phonebook is a good replacement for boards in dire need. I am confused.
    It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but rather the one most responsive to change.

    i'm the same way. there are bunch of cool articles here (rather extensive ones, too) under "a more in-depth study of training." in some of the readings are actual training protocols - some are olympic weightlifting, some are PL. even some of the non-PL studies you can use to examine PL. also the website/club itself has their own program listed. i'm going to make a summer project out of printing some of these out and reading them. hopefully you can find something of use here.

    i don't have the book, but i can tell you that you should go to westside's website, as well as elite and read every article you can that Simmon's wrote, and early Tate articles. They will give you a really really good understanding of the training philosophy.

    This, and read as many training logs of successful lifters as you can.

    Coan said you can get the book through Quads Gym (where he trains).
    Might be a bit cheaper.

    I know you are going to think I am being a smartass but I assure you I am not. The Bible is the best book you can read when it comes to gaining strength. This is coming from an agnostic, a guy that doesn't quite believe. Being agnostic it is hard to admit this book is awesome, but it is. It gives you all the answers to getting a bigger bench, squat, deadlift. Some dude carrying a heavy ass cross up a hill. Another fella needing some carbs for a workout went as far as to eat some forbidden fruit. The book is about ultimate sacrifice and what you need to do to get powerful. If you read carefully you will find all of the Weider principles in this wonderful work of literature. It is invaluable for people serious about getting stronger.

This is coming from an agnostic, a guy that doesn't quite believe. Being agnostic it is hard to admit this book is awesome, but it is. It gives you all the answers to getting a bigger bench, squat, deadlift. Some dude carrying a heavy ass cross up a hill. Another fella needing some carbs for a workout went as far as to eat some forbidden fruit. The book is about ultimate sacrifice and what you need to do to get powerful. If you read carefully you will find all of the Weider principles in this wonderful work of literature. It is invaluable for people serious about getting stronger.

    I agree with endpoint. Probably one of the worst books I have ever read regarding training.

    This is a damn good read:

    hahaha

    He has a very unique writing style
    “Dollar Bill,” a 308, and Phil Harrington, a 181, have done 600 lbs plus 375 lbs of band tension to squat 900 and 905, respectively, at a meet. Phil’s 905 was a world record at 181. These results are very reliable. The math reveals that your contest squat is about one-third higher than your box squat max with the suit straps down and no knee wraps. The results will vary about 3% either way. Greg Panora made a box squat with 645 plus 440 lbs of bands to squat 1000 at 238 and total 2485, a world record at 242. The larger the squat, the greater the band tension must be. The band tension must be great on the box as well.
