    "By the way, who did Stuart McRobert ever train? Chuck, your problem is listening to these self-styled experts! There are hundreds of them out there!" Vince Girondatwo examples of absolutely foolish training advice from Stuart McRobertsA. he never recommended a round back straight leg dead liftB. "no benefit can be achieved from a 20 rep breathing squat unless you are first able squat 400 lbs for a 1 rep max"everything you need to know about squats was already written by Roger Eells back in 1941 and the program is inThe Rader Master Bodybuilding and Weight Gaining System

    This is the book I wish I had been given when I first started weightlifting.It provides thorough, in-depth information on dozens of exercises. It assumes nothing about a trainee - the book covers stance, setup, execution, breathing, variations of the exercises, and more. The information is presented concisely but thoroughly. The illustrations are useful and provide additional clarity to the text. Importantly the book also takes into account individual variations instead of providing cookie-cutter solutions and false precision. You do not need to have (or buy into) any specific routine or training system to benefit from this book. This is not a book telling you how often to Bench Press or how many sets and reps, but how to execute each rep you do without injury.I highly recommend this book to any person doing resistance training.

    This book should be on the shelf of every weight-trainer!! McRoberts has taken the time to genuinely address the realities of correctly performing virtually every safe strength producing movement available(Olympic lifts excepted). In my own experience it has allowed me to progress from constant minor injuries to none in less than a year while at the same time learning to both deadlift and squat correctly. The information in this book, when followed, will let you lift intensely, without injury. In my case it also explained how I was being injured by my technique before I'd been exposed to this book. The only criticism of this book that I've ever run across is that Stuart erred on the conservative side and did not include a few productive movements that are generally safe for most people. With that said; I must tell you that this book is, hands down, the best book on lifting technique currently available anywhere on the market.

    I bought this book a year ago, after accumulating many other books by "big names" in the weightlifting field. This book is the best, by far. The descriptions of the exercises are very, very detailed, with plenty of pictures. The author has no "axe to grind" - he doesn't sell vitamins, supplements, or equipment. I have not opened up any of my other similar books since I bought this one.

    I am a former physiology Teaching Fellow, biochemist and personal trainer. Now, I'm empoyeed in the psychology field, but at one time I was very involved in this area. I have had some injuries along the way including a back, neck and wrist. I worked in a gym and I understand the potential to get injured from accidents and bad technique. I also understand how strength imbalances and misinformation can result in injury down the road. This is the context from which I'm writing my review.First of all, I can't praise this book enough. If I could, I would give it a 6.0! For starters, it is well-organized, dense with useful accurate information and encouraging in tone. It is also honest, realistic and offers the reader high value for a relatively low investment.In my opinion, this author and the author of Starting Strength: A Simple and Practical Guide for Coaching Beginners are the two best in the field bar none. I particularly like Stuart McRobert, however, because you will learn many valuable things from any of his books no matter what your level is. You will also learn a lot about what is and isn't possible based on your genetics and how to move forward if you are a hardgainer.In reality, I think that one or two of Stuart McRobert's books is all you need. Most of his books are equal to three or more of other authors and all of his books are easily readable. You can see more of my recommendations on my listmania list under this category.It is truly rare to see such an honest, balanced approach within this genre. It also rare to see so much well-organized and simple information all in one place. As I said... I feel this book goes beyond a 5.0, especially when compared to similar books on the topic. In a nutshell, it's the practical nuts and bolts of training without going over the top, exaggerating or not backing up what is said.

    This is a good book to have around as a reference book to learn or remind yourself of the proper technique to perform certain lifts.I found this book useful and informative.However, this is not a tell all guide or a book about training programs.

    The rave reviews given this book are well merited. Whether you are a serious musclehead or a fitness oriented strength trainer--if you do not have excellent form sooner or later you will have problems. This book is the only book that gives enough detail about the correct form of the fundamental strength training exercises.If weight training is part of your fitness routine you must own this book and study it carefully.

    Stuart's book on technique is terrific. I have always tried to use good form, as good form builds better musclature. This was the first resouce I have found that covers absolutely every angle of form, and I've really benifited.Too many people don't use good technique, and have no idea what it is. This book explains it very clearly. A must read for any gym user, as it will stave off those injuries hampering progress.This book should also be read/bought in conjunction with "Beyond Brawn", also by McRobert.
