    Your Library - Equipment for the mind

    So what's in your fitness library?
    What books would you recommend be on everyone's shelf?
    Reference, Inspiration, Biographies, etc.

    So far I have Starting Strength (current edition) and Bigger Leaner Stronger.
    Currently reading "Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder" on my kindle.

    Would like to find a really good reference book that goes beyond the big moves in Starting Strength and shows how to do more of the ancillary moves.
    I find a book easier to deal with on the spot when in the gym, rather than looking up youtube vids to check correct form or whatever.

    This is a fantastic idea for a thread. I would say a must have for any serious library is Bill Pearl's books Getting Stronger and Keys to the Inner Universe. They should be bought and read in tandem. Keys to the Inner Universe is more of his bodybuilding encyclopedia, whereas Getting Stronger is a guide to resistance training for sports. Both are useful, and there is not too much overlap. Keys contains quite possibly every lift ever thought of for every body part. Pearl is very no nonsense in that he provides comprehensive, yet practical information acquired through his lifetime of training. Best of all, the books were written before the era of "terrorizing triceps like the pros". I am still of the generation that reads actual books for knowledge about lifting, because honestly, nothing beats sitting on the bog with my tattered old copy of Loaded Guns by Larry Scott.

    To add to that, Forever has quite a bit more plans than the other books I'd say. There are probably around 30 plans in the book. With the Leaders concept his preference seems to have shifted more to 5's Progression (sets of 5 across) and for supplemental work 5x5 at FSL or SSL, all of which helps you accumulate more volume. In general, all of his programing now seems to have more volume on the main lifts and more clearly defined options for accessory work. I think it was definitely a worthwhile purchase.


    Other books I have in my library and refer to on a regular basis are:

    The Strongest Shall Survive by Bill Starr
    Ironman's Ultimate Guide To Building Muscle Mass (has a lot of interesting programs including some by Brooks Kubik)
    Strength Training Anatomy
    Practical Programming, 3rd Edition
    Built to the Hilt
    Serious Strength Training
    5/3/1 2nd Edition
    5/3/1 for Powerlifting
    Insane Training by Matt Kroc
    Arnold's Education of a Bodybuilder (mainly because I like his stories of the old days)

    I’ve still got my first edition of the Arnold encyclopedia on modern body building. Can’t say I’ve used it much in the last 30 years, but back in the day I read through the whole thing and developed my old school approach. Bought it around 1988.

    I have a copy of this book too. Mom gave it to me for Christmas in 2000. It is also tattered and falling apart. It is what initially got me into weight training, although I have expanded my horizons quite a bit. As in lifting twice a day six days a week may work for Arnold and his genetics + dianabol, but for the rest of us average washed-up football players, we simply can't make progress on that type of routine. Nonetheless, the Arnold book will always hold a special place on my shelf !!!

    As I grow older, I really appreciate the writings of Brooks Kubik. We're in a period of rediscovery right now with training and looking back to the training styles of the pre-steriod era of the 40's and 50's has been very useful for me.

    Me too. I really enjoy reading his Dinosaur Training ideas and also looking at old programs by Reg Park, Doug Hepburn, etc. There are definitely some gold nuggets in the old ways of training.

    Same here (got it as a birthday present in hardcover in 85 or 86?). I keep it as more of a nastalgic novelty.

    I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said I've read hundreds of bodybuilding books...and kept only the one. Some have little tidbits of interest, but most cover the same ground. Many simply became out of date, and the majority of the books from the 80s were written for (on the sly) steroid users...before we all really knew much about steroids.

    Honestly, there are interesting tidbits in newer ebooks...but if there's one thing I've learned, the majority of what a natural lifter needs to know can be written down in about 5 pages.

    Along these lines, I really enjoy reading vintage issues of Iron Man magazine (anything about pre-1980), before it made the transition to hardcore bodybuilding. The issues are not very thick, but almost all of the articles are informative and thoughtfully written. I kind of wish there was a magazine/journal published today that actually contained information, rather than being first and foremost a supplement catalog. I agree with there being a ton of gold nuggets in the older writing. I have been on a Vince Gironda kick lately. The beautiful thing about reading material from all eras is you don't have to agree with what anybody says, but being exposed to different training philosophies never hurts. I am going to look into Brooks Kubik.
