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

HASH(0x8b385618) étoiles sur 5 The definitive book on programming 21 janvier 2014
Par Nicholas D. Klemetson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
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!

One of the many problems with the health and fitness industry is that there are many gurus and fads. I have literally wasted YEARS of my life following "5 weeks to (insert body specific goal)" programs from "Health" magazines and numerous other fitness fads. I have purchased many books on the subject. I have cycled, I have done Pilates, yoga. I tried running for over 3 months because all my runner friends told me that it becomes enjoyable, you just have to do it long enough. I have sought advice from local gym personal trainers. Finally after struggling to learn how to squat and getting nowhere with local "certified" trainers, an Internet search led me to the author and his book Starting Strength. Just wading into first few pages of that book I quickly realized that every other source of information about the subject of strength and how to attain it, that I have read, was complete garbage. Mr. Rippetoe presents such a simple, logical approach to strength in all of his writings that you feel like a fool for falling for all of the sophistry out there. His two books: Starting Strength and Practical Programming have changed my life. I do not say that lightly, before reading Mr. Rippetoe's books I could not squat at all, I had no appreciable strength and nothing really to show from years of "working out". Since then, I have squatted 400lbs, deadlifted 455 and standing pressed 175, and I plan on more! The thing is, before reading Mr. Rippetoe's books, I would have never even conceived that I could lift those numbers.

Like others have pointed out, this third edition of Practical Programming contains a significant amount of examples of the training methods. It really hammers home the idea that the programs aren't fixed and you can tailor them to your needs and sport.

If you want to really know what works, why, and how to do it, I strongly recommend you pick up both this book and Starting Strength third edition. You will not regret it.

HASH(0x8b385aa4) étoiles sur 5 The Real Deal 22 janvier 2014
Par Randall Lemke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
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.

HASH(0x8b385e70) étoiles sur 5 Excellent Guide for the Over 60 Warriors 27 mai 2014
Par Eileen E. Czypinski - Publié sur Amazon.com

Finally, someone put together a weight lifting program that works for seniors! I had been using a three day a week program with 5 work sets for each of 4 exercises and 1 work set for the deadlift. As I increased weiights, after 3 months, I was constantly sore and becoming bone-tired and rundown. Finally, I injured my rotator cuff which set me back almost 2 months.
After receiving Mark's new book, I restarted using a two workout per week program witha light day for squats and back-off sets for the other exercises. I am making steady gaiins and am able to enjoy my normal life pain free. Thanks Mark, for giving us old war horses a sensible program for life. I'll be 70 in September 2014.

HASH(0x8b385e1c) étoiles sur 5 Better for coaches than lifters, and biased against bodybuilders 22 novembre 2014
Par Alberto Vargas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
After reading and following Starting Strength, I was inspired to read the same author's Practical Programming.

It was in some ways a disappointment, even if it is a very valuable book. Let me explain:

First of all, there is a lot of discussion of muscle physiology at a very detailed scientific level, which I found uninteresting and not directly applicable to my training. There is a lot of discussion of various training approaches and what a good or bad coach would do, making it clear the book is aimed at people who devise the training programs rather than the athletes or weightlifters themselves.

Some slight annoyances are (1) repeating all the time how important overall strength via squats, deadlifts and presses is and (2) bias against bodybuilders in favor of strength training for Olympic lifting or other strength based sports. While I care about strength, I also care about looks, which is where bodybuilding approaches come in. In Arnold Schwarzenegger's Encyclopedia, there is a photo of Franco Columbu deadlifting 700 lbs, so bodybuilders are strong too. I found it annoying when the author made fun of them, which was thankfully not too often. Although the author dislikes bodybuilding, he describes what creates the "pump" and muscle hypertrophy and validates what Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote in his Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding, so that all squares away. Follow Arnold if you want to look like him, or Rippetoe if you want to build strength alone.

As others have said, Chapter 6 about the novice program is in itself very valuable and perhaps the best part of this book. It adds detail about exercises, rest, and diet (including a sample daily meal plan) which are not found in Starting Strength. Chapters 7 and 8 provide similar details for intermediate and advanced training.

If you are a novice, Starting Strength is sufficient and this follow up book is not needed; too little of it would be applicable, esp. if you are still making steady strength gains. Also, while Starting Strength is chock-full of useful information that's worth re-reading, Practical Programming is relatively dry, boring, and directly useful insights for the athlete himself are relatively rare.

If you are a more advanced lifter or if you are a coach or fitness instructor, this book is for you. The author is very knowledgeable and a little overly thorough :)
