Probably the best book on explaining the different types of weight training programs for individuals needs. Thou the book focus is on triathlon training, it does provide in-depth on the science of weight/ resistance training and the current thinking on training.

For the triathletes, it will advise you how to achieve your goals on increasing endurance, bulk, and strength for each sport or combination of each for a specific distance of your next triathlon race.

I think the info is really good in the book, I wish it were presented in a slightly less complicated manner. It was very bewildering to know how to diagnose the imbalances and then build a training plan to work on them that didn't involve 400 exercises. But I'm looking forward to having some new exercises to do, so for that purpose the book is very good.

good read - recommend print over kindle (kindle version - tables didn't present well) - would have liked more mention of half-iron/iron training - more focused on sprint/olympic tris
