From the Publisher:

“Serious Strength Training brings science into the gym. Finally, you can hone your workouts with the most effective, efficient exercises and get the gains you deserve for your sweat and effort. This book ushers in a new era of scientific training that paves the way for strength training precision.”

Steve Holman Editor-in-chief Ironman magazine

”With science as the backbone and loaded with in-depth practical advice, Serious Strength Training provides a carefully constructed step-by-step approach... This is a good addition to the library of bodybuilders of all levels.”

Muscle & Fitness, August 1998

“In their book, Serious Strength Training, the authors outline a workout routine that takes into consideration ‘family obligations’ and ‘hectic holiday seasons that don’t allow time for training.’ It’s about time! You will find programs for entry-level, recreational and advanced strength trainers and bodybuilders. This book is excellent.”

MA Training, March 1999

About the Author:

Tudor O. Bompa, PhD, revolutionized western training methods when he introduced his groundbreaking theory of periodization in Romania in 1963. After adopting his training system, the Eastern Bloc countries dominated international sports through the 1970s and 1980s. In 1988, Dr. Bompa applied his principle of periodization to the sport of bodybuilding. He has personally trained 11 Olympic Games medalists (including four gold medalists) and has served as a consultant to coaches and athletes worldwide.

Dr. Bompa’s books on training methods, including Theory and Methodology of Training: The Key to Athletic Performance, have been translated into eight languages. His training programs have been used in coaching certification programs around the world, and he’s received certificates of honor and appreciation from such prestigious organizations as the Argentinean Ministry of Culture, the Australian Sports Council, the Spanish Olympic Committee, and the International Olympic Committee.

A member of the Canadian Olympic Association and the Romanian National Council of Sports, Dr. Bompa is full professor at York University in Toronto, Ontario, where he has taught training theories for 25 years. He and his wife, Tamara, live in Sharon, Ontario, where he enjoys walking his dog, gardening, and watching old movies. He is a citizen of both Canada and Romania.

As a personal trainer, kinesiologist, and former bodybuilder, Lorenzo J. Cornacchia has conducted extensive electromyography (EMG) research to identify which exercises cause the greatest muscle stimulation and which could potentially cause harm. He publishes a regular column in Ironman magazine based on his research.

Cornacchia received his bachelor of arts in physical education and health from York University in Toronto, Ontario. A member of the Association of Kinesiologists of Canada and a resident of Toronto, he enjoys attending wrestling events and playing volleyball and tennis.
