Re: Literature

I'm a big fan of the Westside stuff--Book of Methods, Bench Manual, Squat and Deadlift Manual.

Wendler's 5/3/1 stuff is very direct and to the point.

Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik is a classic.

Milo is a great journal to join.

Re: Literature

Ross Enamait produces top-notch work. Infinite Intensity is one of my favourite reads.

You might also want to look into The Science and Practice of Strength Training by Vladimir M Zatsiorsky, as well as Supertraining by Mel Siff. Both textbooks are well worth reading.

For bodyweight exercise, it's also worth reading Building the Gymnastic Body by Coach Sommer. Many ideas on good progressions to be found in there.

Re: Literature

The Olympic Weightlifting book by Greg Everett gets lots of kudos.
