The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding
Arnold Schwarzenegger
0684857219
Nov 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn't competed as a bodybuilder since he won the Mr. Olympia title in 1980, but he remains the sport's No. 1 icon. He hosts an annual bodybuilding contest in Columbus, Ohio, and allows a column to be ghost-written under his name in a muscle magazine. Today's bodybuilders may have bigger muscles than Arnold ever did, but everyone inside and outside the iron game gives him credit for exponentially broadening the popularity of physique training.

With this updated Encyclopedia (it was originally published in 1985), Schwarzenegger wraps his huge arms around the entire sport. He hits the history of bodybuilding, the champions (he's quite generous in his praise of predecessors, contemporaries, and successors alike), the training systems. Some of the information is more bodybuilding lore than science; for...

From Booklist
Here, in one neat package, is pretty much everything you need to know about trail running--running, that is, on dirt trails, not pavement. It isn't (or, at least, it doesn't have to be) torture, endless hours of negotiating tricky mountain paths and inclement weather. Trail running is, we're told, less hazardous, less painful, and less exhausting than pavement-pounding. It's all about relaxation and communing with nature. The book is full of tips, some of them presented in a helpful, question-and-answer format; there's an excellent chapter on outfitting yourself for trail running; another on how best to train before a run; another on preparing, if you're so inclined, for a marathon. The author, a longtime trail runner, approaches the subject from a commonsensical, practical angle, avoiding pseudophilosophical claptrap...

Book Description
Certain to become the bible of HIT-the training that revolutionized lifting with shorter, far-more-intense workouts-this impassioned guide is the last word on how to achieve explosive growth safely, without steroids!

For many dedicated bodybuilders, the weight-lifting theories of Arthur Jones are gospel. It was Jones, the inventor of Nautilus exercise equipment, who first discovered that short, intense workouts could produce better results than the long, high-volume workouts then in vogue.

Even though research into Jones's methods has proved them correct, a number of high-profile strength coaches use HIT to train their athletes, and the bodybuilding magazine Ironman does HIT-based features every issue, there still are no major HIT books in stores. This new book-by champion bodybuilder, exercise...
