Another vote for Lights Out (see signature) and Protein Power Lifeplan. I like Paleo too except for the saturated fat thing.

PPLP goes over more things, it's much more comprehensive.

Is Dan Duchanie's Body Opus in anyone's top 10?

I liked Dan's stuff, and for the time, it was groundbreaking. IMHO, Lyle McDonald took it to the next level with his Ultimate Diet 2.0 book

I just want to say that Billy's avatar is awesome.


"DUFFMAN! OH YEAH!"



And that reading every one of Dan John's Get UP!s is a great idea.

Billy, you needn't spend a fortune on books though the recommendations given by others here are very good. I once asked a question on another board about Exercise Physiology and someone came back with this link:
http://www.geocities.com/elitemadcow...nts_thread.htm
All of it, without exception, is of the finest kind. In the pages of the link there are further links to all manner of author's articles like Pendlay, Rippetoe, Kilgore, Lou Simmons, Dave Tate, etc, etc....
This link alone will keep you busy for hours of reading:
http://www.deepsquatter.com/strength/archives/
I've just not found any better source of (weight) training on the net! For a beginner you just can't possibly go wrong with this stuff.

Frank,

Those are some SWEET links!!

All:

I love throwing out simple questions and getting such helpful answers!! Group hug! (Or high fives all around for the less touchy-feely members)
(Or eye contact for the germophobes)
(Or complete avoidance for the agorophobes)

...and now it's my turn to give back. Check this story out. We can all be geniuses like Matt Damon in "Goodwill Hunting" (Favorite line: "Hey Carmine, remember me from 2nd grade? Will Hunting?")
