The Story Behind This Book
I love strength training. Been doing it since I was 16. Started at a local YMCA before weight training became as popular as it is now. I learned all that I could through experience, books, trial and error, and other people. I became certified as a personal trainer in 1994. The people that I learned from most were, in no particular order, Dr. Wayne Wescott, Dr. Ellington Darden, Peary Rader, Bradley J. Steiner, Dr. Ken Leistner, Dr. Stuart McGill, Brooks Kubik, Peter Neff, Dr. Richard Winett, and in particular Stuart McRobert. These are all authors in their own right, whom I wish to thank deeply. I've been a New York State certified elementary teacher for 10 years, and it was a joy as well as a challenge. I dedicate all my work to my wife, Joanne, and my daughter, Nancy.


Praise and Reviews
"A Worthy Contribution Veteran personal trainer Al Chu, with over 30 years experience, has recently written a no-fluff, straight and to the point, book for those that want the who, why, what, where, when, and how of bodybuilding the right way. A pocket sized weight training manual that I would consider the holy grail for bodybuilding beginners, and, that if followed to the letter, will most likely catapult the serious student to the head of his class. It gives the all important parameters…learning to sense what is not enough as well as what is too much. There is a valuable chapter devoted entirely to nutrition and food supplementation. And, of course, dozens of effective routines laid out for the entire spectrum of experience, from beginner to advanced. The author gives instruction for those that train at home or in a commercial gym, how to avoid overtraining like the plague, warming up as well as cooling down, muscle soreness and injuries, the best exercises for each body-part, etc. I give it a five star rating for anyone who wants to avoid the common pitfalls in their early stages of bodybuilding. Bill Hinbern World Famous Weight Training Authority Author, collector and publisher of Strongman memorabilia, books, courses, etc. www.SuperStrengthTraining.com -------------- Al Chu has written a very good introductory book about strength training. This is an excellent book for the beginner or intermediate level body builder. He gives great insight on many topics from breathing properly to training to failure. He answers a lot of questions that many beginners have. His routines are sound and his lists of best exercises are great. This is an easy read with a lot of good information. John Schneider, D.C.
