I read a great blog everyday. It's written by Underground Strength Coach Zach Even-Esh. He's all about no BS hard/smart work. He has great strength systems that will get you real world strength not just gym strength. What's the point of lifting heavy weights if you can't move them when you need to? Zach uses a combination of old school body building with strongman and other conditioning. Check out this article about the Golden Era of Bodybuilding. It's great stuff!
