The Squat Bible
The Ultimate Guide to Mastering the Squat and Finding Your True Strength
While many books superficially go over many exercises, there are few books that go into depth for a single exercise like The squat bible. While banded reverse grip half rep trap bar deadlift might get people’s attention, programs that are based around the classic corner exercise are far more optimals for long term strength progress. So the squat bible offers the reader the chance to truly master the squat, the unquestionable king of exercises. Written by Dr. Arron Horschig strength coach and physiotherapist. He presents an easily assessible book to understand the squat technique. This book also contains drills and simple tests to perform to screen movement restriction that could hamper your squatting. The book is very well illustrated with clear, easy to follow pictures of exercise and drills. If you want to learn how to squat, coach others to squat, and know how to fix common mobility restriction, this book is a must for coaches and squatting enthusiasts alike.
The World's Fittest Book
The world’s fittest book is an ambitious book. But you don’t expect anything else from a man who has swum around Great Britain, climbed a rope the equivalent of Everest and towed a car around a race track for 26 miles… because…. well …why not.
This book attempts to make hard nosed exercise science principles easily accessible and even fun to read.
This is achieved by relating, engaging and humorous anecdotes from Ross’s athletic adventuring, into easily digestible principles and training programs, making it a true joy to read.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what the methods and insider knowledge elite athletes are using to physically prepare their bodies – delivered in a highly accessible, relatable and charming way – then no other commercialy marketed fitness book comes anywhere close.
A must for any fitness enthusiast coach alike
