    Chuck Norris can take things only so far.

    I really enjoy reading about strength training, in between actual strength training and watching Chuck Norris movies, and I wonder if there are other authors out there similar to the Aasgard books. I enjoyed Marty Gallaghers Purposeful Primitive and understand that Tommy Kono wrote an awesome book that you cannot buy anymore.

    Any tips?

    I have enjoyed Brooks Kubik’s books, such as Grey Hair, Black Iron.

    Haven't read this in a very long time but it put me on the road to really looking into technique instead of the various Weider propaganda.

    Israetelís book is a good, dense read. For advanced trainees.
