The nice thing about READING ABOUT EXERCISING is that you can sit on your duff and munch potato chips while you do it. No groans, no moans, no pain, no gain. Well, at least while you're reading about getting fit and fabulous. And that's okay because: 1. You can't exercise 24 hours a day anyways. 2. Excelling at something implies learning and building your body of knowlege about it FIRST, then practicing it second. 3. Your brain needs to be set in motion before your body can actually do it.
Lately, I've been sitting on my duff reading Build Muscle Lose Fat Look Great: Everything You Need to Know to Transform Your Body - by Stuart McRobert. It really is a standout book on weight training TECHNIQUE. Few others have No-No pictures that show improper form, that go into detail about improper grip, and have a particular emphasis on What NOT To Do -- that all other's seem to mention only in passing.
All these wrongs - frequently pointed out through the book - teach you more about why your own workouts haven't yielded the results you believe you should have gotten. And it can help to make you more critically aware of everything you do at the gym - and perhaps how you haven't been doing it.
