SummaryAdd a Summary
Summarises the less-is-more approach to strength training nicely, however it can be a little lacking in details. It sometimes seems like a collection of short essays that were stuck together, rather than a planned book. In fact, it probably is.
His main philosophy is that most people over-train, thinking that training to failure (going for the burn), is good. From his experience, and the experience of the powerlifters he quotes, it is better to train with few sets (<2), low reps (<5), low variation (only 2 exercises per workour - deadlift and either side or bench press), and the heaviest weight you can lift. There is quiet a bit on how to perform the two exercises correctly, and how to create a workout plan spread over 8 to 16 workouts.
It could be much better laid out, and half the book is selling his other books or videos. if you're looking for fast strength building (less than 20mins/day, 3-5 times per week) with cheap equipment, it's great. Idle for strength building exercises for those who just want to supplement their other sport-training.
