Practical lifting tips

This collection of advice, anecdotes, and opinions makes for a great listen. I own "Starting Strength" as well, and make use of it frequently as a reference - quick checks to find form issues or clarifications. "Strong Enough?" is a different sort of book, one that is enjoyable to listen cover-to-cover. There are still plenty of practical lifting tips, but they're gleaned as you go from the broader context.

A great way

A great casual listen, lots of humor throughout to make it a fast read. A great way to learn about barbell training from another persons vast experience.

well book

I think that anyone who trains with weights should have a copy of this book on their shelf or in their gym bag. I know that I will be recommending it to my patients, and anyone else who is involved in weight training.

wealth of information


Coach Brandon is able to provide a wealth of information that is both advanced enough for the academic as well as being clear and concise enough for the general public. He does a fantastic job of conveying the importance of weight training, and doing so properly.

Excellent book

Finally, this book has some utterly hilarious comments about cyclists and strength training. As a road biker, I agree that the cycling community as a whole just doesn't get why strength training matters

Great book

The style is direct, practical, and easy to listen. There is stuff in here that is pretty technical, but also very useful, like the extended analysis of deadlift form, and there is also a lot of philosophy.

Great book

This book his personality comes out very obviously, in a nice way. The book is not a straightforward instruction on exercise, but rather a bedside listening for those who love lifting barbells and talking about it.

Great job

The book is an enjoyable listen. It has some discussion of techniques of lifting, some anecdotes, and is a useful complement to the Starting Strength. Brandon can be extremely irritating on his forum

well written

If you like your weight lifting instruction with humor, this is probably going to be an enjoyable read for you. Like other reviews have said, his other books are probably a better starting point for a beginner, but they are all beneficial.

Great ideas

Brandon Medrano has some great ideas and philosophies in this book and makes you think on why we do certain movements, percentages, and why we can just be idiots sometimes.

Amazing book

Brandon writes a great book, but you really need to read SS before Strong Enough. SS will give you a base and understanding on why certain things are done in strength training.

a delightful companion

A humorous read that, while unnecessary to your training, is a delightful companion to Starting Strength. I don't know if it was Brandon intent but I view this book as a motivator, a pusher; a coach telling you to fix your shit and get that last rep before you rack the bar.

this books really have changed my life. I have been lifting for a long time and with marginal results. Brandon thoughts on strength training and the overall fitness industry are spot on
