    I'm planning to buy the The Abs Diet book by David Zinczenko.

    What other fitness books have helped you guys out and what do you suggest?

    Thanks

    I'm currently reading Catch 22, but I'll keep these in mind for my next novel-reading.


    And thanks for the suggestion Caslon!

    Body for Life by Bill Phillips has a pretty good training program. But I think the best aspect of the book is that it really motivates you to get moving.

    Basic training; a fundamental guide to fitness for menby Jon Griswold, NY, St. Martin's Press, 1998.

    Excellent in its variety of exercises and in its description of what to do for each.

    Arnold Schwarzenneger's Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding has awesome info. You can find it used for less than 25 which is what it used to go for. Has everything you need. My favorite.

    I just finished reading "Extreme Muscle Enhancement" by Carlon M. Colker, MD. He was a bodybuilder, powerlifter and then became a doctor. I like his straight forward, tell it like it really is attitude.

    Good Book.
