Home Gym Essentials: Books


“What?!” I hear you say, “Books don’t belong in the gym!”

I say they do!

Before you blow thousands of dollars buying gear from Rogue, I say read a few good books on exercise and nutrition.  Whether it’s inspiration or education, you will gain much from reading these books.  Some are going to teach you about the science of diet & exercise, others about the philosophy behind movement & health. Some books are just great resources for exercises and training programs.

Have fun with books.  Be real: if it’s a boring book, you’re never going to read the whole thing. Find books that interest you, those are the books you’ll get the most use out of.  Some of my books are falling apart because I’ve flipped through them so many times.

There are no “must have” or “don’t bother” books in my book (sorry for the pun, I can’t help it).  Just read whatever books you think look cool, practice what you learn from them, and move on to another.  If you don’t know a ton about fitness already, you’ll probably get more value out of this self-education than you would from dropping your entire tax-return or stimulus check on shiny new gear you ordered online.
