A few of the positives about this book:
1. Brian lays everything out with simplicity. He covers a wide range of topics including periodization, deloading, warm-up, nutrition, technique, and the mental approach to training. The nice thing is every chapter on these topics provides simple to implement ideas and strategies that will improve the quality of your training and health.
2. Brian obviously has reached the pinnacle of his sport so it’s awesome to learn from someone who has been to the top. But he has also dealt with debilitating injuries that nearly cut his career short. Having been to the top and bottom of his sport makes the book relatable to us mere mortals. Brian is not just some elitist condescendingly shouting his unrealistic dogmas (though Brian is an elite powerlifter) and advanced ideas to the masses. He writes with the intent to help everyone along the training spectrum, from beginners to seasoned veterans. Anyone that can read the English language can understand these principles and learn how to apply them to their specific training goals.
3. Brian is a no-nonsense type of guy. This book is not fancy. It is not flashy. It is straight-forward, basic, and gets the job done. Want to get stronger and stay healthy? Train with the appropriate intensity at the appropriate times and recover. That’s the jist of it. And this book does an excellent job detailing how to do that. From volume and intensity, to nutritional considerations, to warming up… Applying these principles will get you stronger while maintaining your health. Obviously powerlifting is judged by the raw amount of weight lifted, but rarely if ever should a training day be an all-out, nose-bleed and blackout inducing psychedelic experience. Train hard, and go for the big weights when you are scheduled to peak.
Overall, this is one of the best training books I’ve read. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a coach, or to athletes who are coaching themselves. This will help cut through all the training confusion out there and get you back to the things that have been proven to work through the years.
Top international reviews
The warmup protocol and stabilization exercises have been a game changer for keeping me pain free, and following the weak point index has led to big gym PRs.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to lift with proper technique, get strong, and not burn out. Even though the squat, bench, and deadlift are central in the book, 10/20/Life is not only for powerlifters.
