This book has everything and anything anyone even remotely related to strength and conditioning would need. The detail of everything is more than a coach would need to know, unless that coach is a teacher as well as a coach. It's good for everyone trying to improve athletic performance.

Great advancement book, for anybody's that works in the health and fitness industry. Would suggest this book (and certification course) to anyone whom has actually worked in the industry first to get a more hands on grasp of how anatomy and exercise work in cohesion. Great study material will be used constantly when you start as a trainer/strength coach in this industry.

This text book is a great introduction into resistance training and conditioning. It has a heavy science background, but is very useful. Some important information regarding facility and program design too. Great text, highly recommended. Nothing is perfect, neither is this, but a good start. Also a necessity to study for CSCS exam.

If you are taking the CSCS read this book front to back and take the quizzes at the end of each section. If you do so you will pass in one shot... at least I did (my major was exercise physiology though). Really this book has good information, but won't teach you real world skills you need as a coach. It does it's job to teach you the info.

Sometimes new editions don't change that much but you may want to get the next edition as the exercise section has doubled.
This has all the fundamental information though.
Fantastic text.

After reading this book I was able to pass NSCA's test for the CSCS! I didn't need all the study materials because everything is in this book! I studied hard and it was a success!

This is the National Strength and Conditioning Association book to become a Certifited Strength and Conditioning Coach. It has lots of informaiton, so purchase and study hard to pass the exam. This is the basic for understanding strength and development.

Great base knowledge for the fundamentals of strength and conditioning principles. Definitely necessary to pass the CSCS exam. Consider also investing in practice tests to supplement reading material.

4 years later and I still refer to this book from time to time. A must for any serious strength and conditioning professional or any trainer who wants to actually get good at their craft.
