It seems that it has become synonymous to suggest a supplement when trying to improve your health and fitness. The real question here shouldn't be which supplement you need, but rather, do you really need one to begin with?
You can't search the internet or browse social media any more without seeing an advertisement claiming to cure what ails you.
After working almost a decade in sales for a nation wide supplement chain, one thing the customers taught me was that most of them wanted a fix to whatever problem they had. Most of the time, it didn't have to be a quick fix, just a fix to something they didn't think they were capable doing on their own.
The real question is whether or not the supplement they were buying actually was doing what they had hoped it was doing.
As you can imagine, I read a ton of books, some that have to do with the health and fitness realm and others that don't. Most of my time in college was spent reading text books and research journals, so a bulk of what I read to this day is just that, text books and research journals.
It's been quite difficult to switch to something other than those materials, but I do from time to time.
But that's not what I want to talk about today, this is a book that I have found really helpful to those just beginning their weight lifting journey. Brad Schoenfeld has done a great job creating this resource and I find myself recommending it quite a bit.
You can find the book here if you're interested in picking up a copy yourself: amzn.to/2IVFJaC
