Best Bodybuilding Books For Muscle Bears

Any Muscle Bear worth his weight knows that you have to equally build your brain to get your brawn. Even the most dedicated gym rat Bears using only their instincts will eventually hit plateaus in muscle gains or waste hours and hours of their life with relentless, sub-optimal weight-training techniques.

I’ve had the cheap luxury of a great second-hand store in the neighborhood with an extensive collection of used health books that has allowed me snag dozens and dozens of fitness, exercise, nutritional guidance, weight training and some of the best bodybuilding books for only a buck or two apiece over the years. I kept the best, donated the rest, and learned a lot of things a Muscle Bear needs for a lifetime of knowledge they can apply at the gym every day.

If I was stranded on a deserted island with only 3 of the best books for bodybuilding it’d be an easy choice:

Why Its Hard To Build Muscle - Lose Fat - Look Great

McRobert Book On Weight Training
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.
