The best book on movement I have come across thus far. This book is next level… If you’ve ever had a training injury or you want to prevent a training injury, then get this book.
by Mark Adams
Bernarr Macfadden was an interesting character with lots of zany ideas, and a central figure of the health and fitness industry in the early 20th century. A must-read if you’re into health and fitness and also a history nerd like me.

by Arnold Schwarzenegger
If you want to know what it takes to get to the top, read this book. Very motivating, and you’ll see just how Arnold’s ascent to the top was no accident.
by Malcolm Gladwell
I’m obsessed with success. Something that drives me is this question: what separates the best from the rest? Why do few become great, while many fade into obscurity? Gladwell attempts to explain why in this great read. Definitely worth a look.
by Stephen R. Covey
The classic. I don’t even know where to start, you kind of just have to read it. The 7 Habits is more than just a book, it’s a framework for success. If I could only choose one self-improvement book, this would be it.

by Sebastian Junger
A great book on why belonging, loyalty, and having a community are so important.
by Seth Godin
One of my favorite Godin books. The Dip is what happens after starting… the time after the initial high and newness wears off. It’s here where most quit, and it’s here where winners push through.
by Samuel Wilson Fussell
One man goes from skinny weakling to mass monster, but what for? And was is it worth it? This is a very fun read, and I found myself laughing out loud at several points throughout. I think the best part about this book is the lesson you get from it: make training a part of your life, a multiplier, and not your life itself.
