?"The New Rules of Lifting" is one of the first books on the subject that didn?t 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

Schuler and Cosgrove write with a very fluid and engaging style. Their writing not only makes you want to keep reading but to try to implement their ideas. They go through a series of techniques, exercises, programs, nutrition and life. In the end they remind us that lifting is not life, and that we need to have a balanced life.
The six core exercises they focus on are: Squat, Deadlift, Lunge, Push, Pull, Twist and Combo moves. They use these core exercises to build the core of your strength and of your routines. For each of the exercises they have a range of variations.
Lou and Alwyn have written a great fitness book. The writing is excellent, the research impeccable. The book also contains an extensive section of notes, and a great index to go back and search for something you read months ago when it comes time to make a change. This book is easy to read, easy to understand and if you're motivated, trouble-free to implement.
So if you are looking to start working out, or have been for years and need to change things up, check out this book. It has tools to help you here while at university and for the rest of your life.
Whether you're new at exercising, new at lifting, or have been lifting for years, this is a must-read. It's well written, easy to read, has great guides, and it addresses so many misconceptions about lifting. This is an awesome book and a must-have for anyone interested in improving their fitness and diet.
