27 Dec The 5 Best Fitness Books Of The Year (2016 Edition)

As we begin, let me tell you this. The list here should be titled the 5 best and most unconventional fitness books of the year. These aren't the typical "mainstream" fitness books and if you've read anything before from this website, you know that's not how I roll. Now that I said that, here's my 5th year of publishing the 5 best fitness books of the year. (If you missed last year's article, see the bottom of this post). What I can say about this year's list is that the books here can improve your life - or help you improve those you work with. These are performance books to enhance sport - or life. Coming up with this list was tough. It always is. It was tough because I read some great books this year, but the truth is I can't read everything out there, so there's probably some great books that I just didn't get to (yet). I still have a stack of books that were released in 2016 that haven't been read. Who can benefit from this list? Anybody really, but this is written specifically for coaches, trainers, lifters, the serious fitness enthusiast, and or the rehab professional. It's for people who simply want the edge in lifting, in sport, and in life.

Interestingly enough, I had seen my friend a few months later and asked him if he had picked up the book on my recommendation to take control of his low back pain (LBP). He didn't get the book and I thought that was extremely unfortunate because I knew how much the book could have helped him. That leads me to this book review, which is now long overdue.

28 Dec The 5 Best Fitness Books of The Year (2015 Edition)

Here's my 4th annual post summarizing the top 5 fitness books of the year. If you're a regular reader, you know how much value I place on reading great books to improve the quality of your life - in any subject, not just fitness. There were some great books this year, without a doubt. While I read a lot of books each year, I can't read everything, so I'm sure there were some other outstanding books that are probably deserving to be mentioned here, as well. The list criteria has evolved a bit through the years, so here's what I based things on this year:
