Just wanted to give you guys a heads up on a few new books that have come out. I get sent a lot of books to review and want to share some with my readers:
First up is the next installment in the Core Performance series Core Performance for Women
The original Core Performance is one of my favorite books. I still recommend it for anyone looking for a book for a sophisticated beginner or an up and coming coach. I think this will be a great book for those who coach females.
Next up are two new books from Adam Campbell and Men’s and Women’s Health. The Woman’s Health Big Book of Exercises
and The Men’s Health Big Book of Exercises . Adam has done a great job of raising the bar on these books. The exercises are very current, well described and well illustrated. If you are new to the field and looking for ideas and progressions you’ll enjoy either book.
. I’ve read a couple of nutrition books and have to say that I really enjoyed Power of 4. Like many nutrition books some of the advice is unrealistic but, the book reads easy and has a lot of cutting edge ideas. Paula is definitely not your “skinny runner” type of nutritionist and is, at least in my mind, very accurate with her thoughts. If you have read a lot of the conventional nutrition stuff ( high carb-low fat blah, blah, blah) this book will be a paradigm shift.
If you got a bunch of gift cards for Christmas, this might be a great way to spend them.
