Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

There are lots of things about weight training in general and barbell exercise in particular that can only be learned by spending way too many hours in the gym. And honestly, unless you're a gym owner, this is a really weird way to spend 75 hours a week. Mark Rippetoe has been in the fitness industry since 1978 and has owned a black-iron gym since 1984. He knows things about lifting weights and training for performance that most other coaches and professionals have never had the chance to learn. This book of essays offers a glimpse into the depths of experience made possible through many years under the bar, and many more years spent helping others under the bar.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great Starting Strength companion 4 de enero de 2008
Por Sean McDaniel - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
This collection of advice, anecdotes, and opinions makes for a great read. I own "Starting Strength" as well, and make use of it frequently as a reference - quick checks to find form issues or clarifications. "Strong Enough?" is a different sort of book, one that is enjoyable to read cover-to-cover. There are still plenty of practical lifting tips, but they're gleaned as you go from the broader context.

If "Starting Strength" is the next best thing to having a lifting coach beside you in the gym, "Strong Enough?" is the next best thing to having a beer with him afterwards.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Are you Strong Enough? Are you sure about that? 24 de enero de 2008
Por Amazon Customer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
"Strong Enough?" is a collection of eighteen articles Rippetoe has written on a variety of topics related to weight-training over the years. Within these articles are anecdotes of events and people that have shaped his opinions and life. Far more informal and conversational than the other books, but still incredibly informative, and running the gambit of inspiring to hilarious, they entertain and inform in Rip's rare style.

There is an enlightening dissection of Silly BS from a variety of medical and fitness sources, more excellent quotations of the great minds you should read, and you can find out just how much weight training is related to the topics on Art Bell. Some stories are quite touching too, and you get some insight into the kinds of things that can be learned through the years by someone who cares to keep their eyes open, ears attuned, and sense of humor never too far away. Interspersed between and within the articles are pictures that span the three decades of Rippetoe's career, from intense competition lifts to other scenes from the gym and life, including the author's mother in the 75-79 master's age group setting an impressive state record. I'm looking forward to the calendar, personally... no word on its release date yet.

Add this book to your shelf for a thought-provoking read when you can't get into a heavier tome.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Help In Becoming Strong Enough! 31 de diciembre de 2007
Por Ken E. Leistner - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
The product description states "There are lots of things about weight training in general and barbell exercise in particular that can only be learned by spending way too many hours in the gym" and Mr. Rippetoe has done just that. His willingness to share the type of information that can only be earned the hard way, by training, competing, and training others to the highest level of success is within these pages and presented in a meaningful and useful manner that reflects Mark's well-known and often caustic sense of humor. Forget the "get abs in thirty days" hype and the concept that biceps and ab muscles equates to fitness, health, and strength. The real information is in Strong Enough? and its useable NOW, enjoyable NOW, and necessary NOW in a culture awash with the notion that you don't have to work hard to improve.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas An excellent read. A must for anyone who lifts weights. 30 de mayo de 2008
Por Travis A. Russell - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
I've just finished Strong Enough? and I have to say that I found it to be an incredibly informative and entertaining read. I am a practicing Chiropractor and have been involved in serious weight training for over 10 years. I have a background in exercise physiology with a BS degree in Kinesiology and a coaching endorsement from my undergrad university. My personal philosophies of health include a combination of Chiropractic care with regular weight training exercise. I honestly feel that a great many of today's health care problems could be prevented by this combination. I will be recommending to my patients who are engaging in athletic endeavors and weight training in general to read this book, along with Rippetoe's other works, Starting Strength and Practical Programming.

Coach Rippetoe is able to provide a wealth of information that is both advanced enough for the academic as well as being clear and concise enough for the general public. He does a fantastic job of conveying the importance of weight training, and doing so properly. Along with this, he's got quite the sense of humor. More times than I can count I found myself laughing along with a passage as I was reading.

Strong Enough? is a rare find in this world of popular "fitness" magazines and bodybuilding rags that preach the same tired (and largely ineffective) routines time and time again. I find myself reading along and thinking to myself, "I've told people this same information so many times! Why don't they get it?" It's refreshing to find someone willing to set the topic of weight training straight for a change. Instead of misleading the general public with ineffective routines alongside pictures of chemically enhanced models/"athletes" and an equal amount of advertising copy, Coach Rippetoe puts the information out there in clear terms. But this book doesn't include a canned workout that readers can just pluck out of the pages and implement into their gym time. This book offers a unique commentary on the past and present state of strength training. Offering his personal thoughts over a long and successful career as a strength coach, Rippetoe gives readers something new to think about. This is true for novice, intermediate, advanced and elite lifters alike. In the rare chance that there is nothing in this book that is new to the reader, at the very least it is a useful reminder of some very important concepts. And that alone is worth the price of the book.

Adding in some wit and humerous commentary to the generous dose of common sense makes this a fun, quick and easy read. I think that anyone who trains with weights should have a copy of this book on their shelf or in their gym bag. I know that I will be recommending it to my patients, and anyone else who is involved in weight training.

Thanks for writing your books, Rip.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Why you should be strong 24 de enero de 2008
Por George Handyside - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
This is an entertaining and informitive book. Like this author's previous work, the primary focus is on the correct performance of the basic lifts ( squat, press, deadlift, bench, and clean ).But, this is more than just " nuts and bolts", it is also "hearts and minds". Rippetoe has thought long and hard about how we should train and why we should train, and his obsevations on both are enlightening...and somewhat controversial This book is entertaining because all this thoughtful analysis is written with a great deal of humor and insight. I have read and re - read this book and I always come away with something to think about.His passion for lifting and his dedication to those who train is evident throughout. The chapter on "Good Form" alone is worth the price of the book.

The cruel fact is that strength training contributes mightily to endurance/aerobic training, and endurance training contributes essentially nothing to strength training. &quote;
