I highly recommend The Science of Strength Training. It's a comprehensive, actionable, and easy-to-understand handbook for new and experienced weightlifters alike. Worth ten times the price. -- Mike Matthews, author of Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger
I am blown away with the quality of this book! From the photos, diagrams, and text. This is truly the resource for both coaches and those trying to understand the science of lifting more. The perfect resource for learning what exercises target what muscles, how to execute them, and how to train for your goals. Austin's book is an incredible resource for anyone interested in fitness and lifting. -- Alyssa Olenick, Ph.D.(c), CISSN, Researcher & Coach
Austin Current's Science of Strength Training is a great read for both beginners and advanced trainees alike. Far too often people head into the gym without a clear understanding of the physiology behind the process in which they are engaged. Austin does a great job of breaking down the complex science behind weight training while making it understandable for everyone and ensuring practical applications every step of the way. I can't recommend it enough. -- Cliff Wilson, author of Bodybuilding: The Complete Contest Preparation Handbook and 13x World Champion Natural Bodybuilding Coach
Austin has done an incredible job on putting together the Science of Strength Training. He's found the perfect balance of laying it out in a way that will benefit both the average gym-goer who just loves to train and the more dedicated coach or trainer who has a deeper understanding of the science side of things. I honestly couldn't recommend this book enough, and I will be using it as a reference for both my online and in-person clients and for the coaches and trainers I help out along the way. -- Danny Kennedy, Personal Trainer & Host of The Fitness & Lifestyle Podcast
