By Anthony L. Carlquist on April 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
THis is a great scientific book if you are doing a paper for your masters/doctorate degree or need some type of literature to quote. This book is a TEXT Book so if you are a coaching looking for something plain English that says do this to improve vertical jump or your squat then look somewhere else. This is the best of the best books when it comes to researching strength training.

This book is absolutely huge and I know Siff takes some criticism for not being able to give coaching info but he was not a coach. People need to understand there is a different between a PhD and a coach. PhD study how things work and coaches will actually take info and apply it to training. I had professors in college that could tell me how plyometrics work and how creatine phosphate system works step by step but couldn't write a strength training program or sprint program. I ready many other strength books and articles before I picked this on up because I was told it was basically a text book.

The best books that I have read that tell you how to actually use some of the info were written by Christian Thibaudea or Louie Simmons. Christians books are great and I'm really surprised more people have not read his books. The Black Book of Training Secrets and Theory and Application of Modern Strength Methods are two I'd pick up if you bought Super Training and are not sure how to use the info. Louie SImmons articles can be found at WestSide Barbell.

If you are looking for great DVD's check out Parisi Speed Videos or Defrancos SuperTraining video. They are the top of the line.

I have seen this book available online elsewhere, in a 2004 edition (!), so really, there is no excuse for you not having this.

Honestly, by the time I got to page 10, I'd already had many of my assumptions about health and strength challenged.

Dr. Siff seems to have a much greater appreciation for the contributions to health made by real strength training as opposed to cardiovascular fitness, which is basically heresay here in the USA. The man says:

"...the proliferation of weight training facilities and personal trainers still has much more to do with commercialsim than the impact of strength science, as is emphasized by the fact that the CARDIOVASCULAR DOCTRINE [emphasis added] still dominates the fitness conscious psyche..."

This book is a goldmine, loaded with a constant stream of science-based information that is essential.

Before you read this, make sure you are ready to expand your knowledge base and dive in-depth into specifics as opposed to generalizations.

Don't pay $180 for the best theory book on strength, conditioning and exercise science ever written. While it is worth several hundred dollars google will show you how to get it for the price the original author was selling it about $60 as well as his other landmark book - Facts and Fallacies of Fitness!
