We want people to be really freaking smart. Most fitness or strength-re- lated questions are most honestly answered with the phrase, “It depends.” There are very few things that are universally right or wrong, but people are still look- ing for spoonfed answers and cookie-cutter solutions. Unfortunately, that’s not going to get you very far.
In these two books, we want to equip you with the tools to start thinking about training the way an expert lifter or an experienced coach would. There aren’t going to be many pre-packaged answers or, say, a training routine you can implement directly. Rather, they provide you with an all-in-one handbook for navigating the minefield of online fitness information.
