Body by Science

If you want to learn about the science behind High Intensity Strength training this is an excellent book.

“In Body By Science, bodybuilding powerhouse John Little teams up with fitness medicine expert Dr. Doug McGuff to present a scientifically proven formula for maximizing muscle development in just 12 minutes a week. Backed by rigorous research, the authors prescribe a weekly high-intensity program for increasing strength, revving metabolism, and building muscle for a total fitness experience.”

To reassure our readers the book is not about bodybuilding, it’s about effectively stimulating your muscles and describing what happens in the muscle in in a biological sense from this training and how that leads to strength and muscle gains.   Very informative for someone that wants a deeper understanding.
