Ten unique programs for fat loss, muscle gain, and strength improvement for beginners and elite lifters.
Want to get more out of your workout and spend less time in the gym? Many guys devote so many hours to lifting weight yet end up with so little to show for it. In many cases, the problem is simple: They aren’t doing exercises based on the movements their bodies were designed to do. Six basic movements—the squat, deadlift, lunge, push, pull, and twist—use all of the body’s major muscles. And, more important, they use those muscles in coordinated action, the way they were designed to work.
The New Rules of Lifting, now in paperback and with more than one hundred photographs, gives you more than a year’s worth of workouts based on these six basic movements. Whether you’re a beginner, an experienced lifter looking for new challenges, or anything in between, you can mix and match the workouts to help you get bigger, stronger, and leaner. In addition, the comprehensive nutritional information provided makes The New Rules of Lifting a complete guide to reaching all your goals.
If you aren’t using The New Rules of Lifting, you aren’t getting the best possible results.

The New Rules of Lifting
is one of the first books on the subject that didnt make me want to smack the authors over the head with a rusty dumbbell. This book is painfully honest, refreshingly funny, and superbly informative. T.C. Luoma, Editor-in-Chief, T-Nation.com
Strength training 101 for anyone new to working out with weights as well as longtime exercisers still searching for the right formula, this book also offers a two-to four-week jump-start program.
