The fact that Bolton is one of the big names in dead lifting gets another star.
He broke records and did things in dead lifting that are bigger than 99.9% of the people out there.
He tells you how he did it and what worked for him.
This is invaluable knowledge.
When it comes to using your body as a physical tool, you don't have a warranty and you can't return it.
If you want to do something amazing with your body, listen to the people who have actually done it themselves.
Pavel is not a dead lift king like Bolton, but he understands how to collaborate with those who have achieved greatness in their fields and get that knowledge into an understandable form for the everyday person to use.
I am in my mid forties. I dead lift and squat to physically stress my body so that it creates the HGH (human growth hormone) that older people don't have naturally. It keeps me in good enough shape to keep on with a very physical career that I enjoy.
Dead lifts and squats are the two exercises that really make my body thrive so I want to be the best I can be at these two critical tasks. That's why I purchased this book.
I'm not a body builder or a power lifter.
I just want to do it right and be injury free.
I started 3 months ago at 200 pounds. I'm dead lifting 375 x5 at this point.
I'm never going to break any records but I achieve personal records every week and that's what it's all about.
I also recommend Mark Rippetoe, Dan John, and any other book co- authored or authored by Pavel Tsatsouline.
Other sources for beginners to look at
nerdfitness.com -girls, read about Spezzi's story. excellent example of what you can do.
stronglifts.com - solid 5x5 program that works for free. It got me started and I never used the paid stuff. The free stuff is enough to get you a long way. If you like it enough to pay for the inner circle then more power to you.
startingstrength.com- very good. real info. not broscience.
danjohns.net - he is a lifting and throwing coach but all of his fitness training applies for getting healthy. Once again, real world, not broscience.
Yo Elliott - on youtube. VERY entertaining, talks about a lot of different fitness issues along with "men" stuff.
A young guy looking to get familiar with the world of weights would get a lot out of this guy.
He does use explicit language on occasion but he's one of the few out there who seems to have more interest in quality lifting advice than in his ego.
This is enough to get good form that will help you be strong and injury resistant
Also covers probably the best assortment of assistance excercises for helping keep balanced strength and mobility as you develop power.
Basic periodization strategies are covered to allow you to keep getting stronger and not break down sowing it.
The best book ( out of about 50 or so I've read) on how to get really strong I've ever encountered. I wish I would have had this 25 years ago when I started, I would have been stronger with less injuries. As it is now, this has helped me get stronger than I've ever been, and taking me from not being able to deadlift due to back injuries to putting up 110% of weight than I ever have at age 38 in about a year of training. My bench has even improved about 30% as well which had been stagnant for 10 years due to AC joint issues and shoulder pain limiting the weight I felt I could safely put on my shoulders.
Great book that I expect will take 5 or so times through to soak up all the details and apply them.
Too many of the cycles are arbitrary and hypothetical, but if you don't understand cycling, they'll be fine for you; if you already understand basic load cycling, you won't find them useful.
If you're just entering strength training or the sport of powerlifting, this is an excellent lead-you-by-the-hand manual. If you love reading the training suggestions of world record holders, this is a great piece by Andy Bolton. If you're looking for some wild insight to radically improve your intermediate-to-advanced lifting, this is a fun read but probably not what you need.
