Just out of curiousity, how does this book compare to Arthur Drechsler's "The Weightlifting Encyclopedia"?

Jason Struck , RKC said...

Arthur's book is more in depth, with greater emphasis on long term planning and history of the sport. It's significantly longer, harder to find and more expensive.

Greg's is more geared towards the trainee with say 1-5 years of general strength training history (power, olympic, sports, bodybuilding, crossfit sort of backgrounds). It gives more general guidance on assistance lifts to treat errors and training plans for beginners/intermediate lifters. And better photos.

Thanks Jason. I already have Arthur's book and have enjoyed it immensely. I might have to also look at the Olympic Weightlifting book too...
