Présentation de l'éditeur

Please note that due to the large amount of tables, this book will display best on large screens, as well as Kindle Fire series where the screens can be quicky rotated to optimize individual displays. Not suitable for Kindle 1 devices as these flatten tables.

There is a difference between Exercise and Training. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for the effect it produces today, during the workout or right after you're through. Training is physical activity done with a longer-term goal in mind, the constituent workouts of which are specifically designed to produce that goal. Training is how athletes prepare to win, and how all motivated people approach physical preparation.

Practical Programming for Strength Training 3rd Edition addresses the topic of Training. It details the mechanics of the process, from the basic physiology of adaptation to the specific programs that apply these principles to novice, intermediate, and advanced lifters.

--Each chapter completely updated
--New illustrations and graphics
--Better explanations of the proven programs that have been helping hundreds of thousands of lifters get stronger more efficiently
--Expanded Novice chapter with the details of 3 different approaches to the problem of getting stuck and special approaches for the underweight and overweight trainee
--Expanded Intermediate chapter with 18 separate programs and 11 detailed examples
--Expanded Advanced chapter with detailed examples of 9 different programs
--Expanded Special Populations chapter with example programs for women and masters lifters training through their 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s
--Day-to-day, workout-to-workout, week-by-week detailed programs for every level of training advancement
--The most comprehensive book on the theory and practice of programming for strength training in print

Printed in a new larger format for better display of the programs, PPST3 will be an important addition to your training library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The definitive book on programming 21 janvier 2014
Par Nicholas D. Klemetson - Publié sur
Both of Mark Rippetoe's major contributions to strength training literature are now in their third editions. Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training - 3rd Edition has established itself as one of the premiere pieces of literature for anyone interested in getting stronger, and now the 3rd edition of Practical Programming has joined it.

The 2nd edition was full of wonderful information regarding the stress/recovery/adaptation cycle of strength training. Simply put, the more you do something (say, squat or deadlift), the better you become at it, and changes in programming (frequency, set/rep schemes, etc...) are required to further progress.

New to the 3rd edition is an impressive amount of detail on how to go about the necessary changes in programming as a lifter progresses.

The book contains its largest upgrade in chapters 6-8. With the assistance of Andy Baker of Kingswood Strength and Conditioning, programming for the novice, intermediate, and advanced lifters is covered in amazing detail.

For the novice, the basic principles of the Starting Strength method are discussed as well as a fabulous real world example of a properly executed linear progression. New to the 3rd edition is an extensive look at how to elongate and squeeze every drop of usefulness out of a linear progression. It details resets, stalls, and recovering from the mistake of increasing your lifts too quickly. All of these scenarios are backed up with biomechanical details of the human body. Additionally, new to the novice section is a detailed account of the "advanced novice" lifter as well as specialized diet and training tips for the particularly overweight or underweight trainee.

The Intermediate section has received the largest upgrade of all. While novice programming allows for progress from workout to workout, intermediate programming stretches out progress over a week to week basis. Though Rippetoe discussed his "Texas Method" style of programming in the 2nd edition, it prompted a lot of questions about variations and alternatives to the demanding programming. The details of the Texas Method are contained in 30+ pages of the most important, effective writing in strength programming literature. Broken into four phases, the amount of detail contained here is staggering, and should hopefully answer any questions and address all problems trainees may have with this very complex programming. Also included are "split routines" spread over four days, as well as a Heavy-Light-Medium system popularized by coaching great Bill Starr in the 1970's.

The advanced chapter delves into periodization, or the structuring of training schedules beyond a week to week basis. The book makes very clear that this programming is for ADVANCED lifters who's progress on a week to week basis has stalled out completely. At this point, a strength athlete will be at the point where they are ready to specialize in a certain realm of athletics. Specific training details for powerlifters, MMA athletes, and Olympic weightlifters are described in exhaustive detail. Most recreational lifters will never reach this level, but its inclusion here is extremely welcome.

The final chapter will prove extremely useful for current strength training coaches. It includes specific training details for females, youth, and an extensive section on older (35+ years) lifters.

Simply put, Practical Programming 3rd Edition is required reading for anyone who has a desire to achieve their maximum potential in the weight room. Buy it, read it, read it again, and get stronger!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Real Deal 22 janvier 2014
Par Randall Lemke - Publié sur
Mark Rippetoe's Practical Programming has been a go to for many in the strength field and those who are serious about getting strong. The previous editions, while they contained a lot of good information, were presented as more of a launching point for industrious trainees to use to develop a program on their own, once they understood the theory. Apparently, Rip discovered that metal heads often are not so industrious, and so has updated Practical Programming to the 3rd edition to flesh out the programs in great detail with the help of Andy Baker.

I'll put it this way: if you are looking at this review, odds are you lift weights; if you lift weights, then you should buy this book, even if you already own a previous edition. This is a complete rewrite and adds years worth of programs to try out and tweak. The Texas Method section is worth the price of this book alone; there is so much depth here, while Rip is always fantastic, Andy Baker's contribution is fantastic, and adds a great deal of to the section on intermediate programming.

Don't be a cheapskate and try to cobble all this information together for yourself from various forums and google. This will be a standard reference for years to come when it come to strength programming. Take it from a guy who has read a lot of these (mostly crappy) types of books, you owe it to yourself to read a good one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Everything you need to reach an advanced level 18 février 2014
Par Michael Gage - Publié sur
This updated edition is a great improvement to the 2nd edition, which was already one of the greatest strength programming books available. The early chapters are vital for understanding the basics of good programming, including when and how to manipulate volume, intensity, and exercise selection, along with briefly covering other fundamentals, like sleep and nutrition. The later chapters discuss programming for different levels of athletes and (the addition that everyone is excited about) provides several templates for you to use. It's not just about the templates, though. The book provides an understanding of programming and how it makes you stronger. This gives you the ability to make programming changes for yourself based on how your training is going. This is vital for people like me who train alone and without a coach. I need to understand how to adapt my programming as I advance because no one template will work for everyone or work forever. This gives you the ideas of where to start and an understanding of how to adapt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An indispensable resource 18 février 2014
Par Seth Haesecke - Publié sur
Regardless of where you are in your training progression, this book has something for you.

For starters, it simply and effectively lays out the basics of physiological adaptation. This naturally leads to the explanation of what makes a novice so special and why they can follow simple programs and make such rapid gains. If you have exhausted your novice gains, this book gives plenty of examples of more advanced programs and explains which one might suit you best. But, more than that, it gives you the tools to design a program that fits your specific goals and circumstances.

Additionally there is a very helpful section on training special populations (youth, elderly). I haven't encountered a better presentation of this material. It manages to be educational without all of the usual excessive jargon, and very accessible and entertaining.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read for Anyone Interested In Strength Training 22 janvier 2014
Par John E Petrizzo - Publié sur
The third edition of "Practical Programming for Strength Training" is an absolute must have for anyone interested in strength training. Rippetoe and Baker have overhauled the text from start to finish and provide the reader with many more detailed examples of effective, easy to understand, strength training programs that will be useful for trainees of any age, sex, or level of training advancement. Whether you are a soccer mom looking to get stronger, an elderly person trying to regain some independence, or even a competitive powerlifter or olympic weightlifter, this book will provide you with the knowledge that you need to help you attain your goals safely and effectively.

No other book that I have read on this subject compares.
