Description

There is a difference between Exercise and Training. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for
the effect it produces today, during the workout or right after you're through. Training is physical activity done with
a longer-term goal in mind, the constituent workouts of which are specifically designed to produce that goal. Training
is how athletes prepare to win, and how all motivated people approach physical preparation.

Practical Programming for Strength Training 3rd Edition addresses the topic of Training. It details the mechanics of
the process, from the basic physiology of adaptation to the specific programs that apply these principles to novice,
intermediate, and advanced lifters.
