Reading up about my most favourite Strength training book writer Frederic Delavier..

He has several university degrees in dissection of the human body and writes the most detailed weight training books in our history..

Any one whom strength trains or power lifts knows Frederic and his talents as a university educated writer and illustrater of strength training and the human anatomy of muscles...

I have The Spark on my Barnes and Noble Nook but haven't gotten to rereading it (bought the hardback when it first came out); I read all my nonfiction books here on the computer while I'm working at SparkPeople and other sites I frequent during the day. At the moment I'm reading "The Happiness Project".

non-fitness related book: Sarah's Key (yeah, made me cry!)

fitness related book: Making the Cut by Jillian Michaels.. I'm going through all the circuit routines and learning a LOT. Plus, I love how she incorporates intense cardio at the end of each strength training circuit, which I think is vital!

When I focus on what's good today, I have a good day. When I focus on what's bad, I have a bad day. When I focus on the problem, it increases. I will focus on the solution, not the problem.

I am reading a book called Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. It is a very direct (and funny) read, but, more importantly, it gives a ton of information on food in general...
