The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 directly addresses the most pervasive problem faced by aging humans: the loss of physical strength and all its associated problems - the loss of muscle mass, bone mineral loss and osteoporosis, hip fractures (a terminal event for many older people), loss of balance and coordination, diabetes, heart disease related to a sedentary lifestyle, and the loss of independence. The worst advice an older person ever gets is, Take it easy. Easy makes you soft, and soft makes you dead. The Barbell Prescription maps an escape from the usual fate of older adults: a logical, programmed approach to the hard work necessary to win at the extreme sport of Aging Well. Unlike all other books on the subject of exercise for seniors, The Barbell Prescription challenges the motivated Athlete of Aging with a no-nonsense training approach to strength and health - and demonstrates that everybody can become significantly stronger using the most effective tools ever developed for the job.

K. Black’s Tactical Barbell and Tactical Barbell II compose a ground breaking multi-dimensional fitness system designed specifically for operational athletes. Not only has the Tactical Barbell system helped countless operational athletes step up their strength and conditioning game, but mix martial artists, endurance athletes, and recreational fitness enthusiasts of all sorts have adopted these principles in order to achieve high levels of achievement across the fitness spectrum. In Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete, Jim Madden hones the Tactical Barbell system to fit the needs of trainees who have reached middle age and beyond. Programs geared at older populations typically aim at maintaining basic levels of fitness and general well-being. While that is all well and good, Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete doesn’t assume that you need to settle for less just because you are now on the other side of forty. Using the Tactical Barbell system, Madden lays out how you can build and maintain outstanding levels of strength and conditioning at any age. In Tactical Barbell Presents: Ageless Athlete you will find extensive discussions of how to avoid the psychological pitfalls that lead many older trainees to sell themselves short, multiple new strength templates built on Operator and Zulu from Tactical Barbell, a method for planning recovery days/weeks, templates for incorporating accessory lifts and kettlebells, methods for testing strength progress, a standard base building template tailored for the ageless athlete, diet tips, and recommendations for long term persistence. Whether you have reached middle age or not, it is never too early to start training like an ageless athlete.

Tactical athletes are a unique breed. You're expected to operate at an extraordinarily high level in stressful situations. Often in dangerous environments. As a SWAT operator, combat-arms soldier, or first responder, you have to be a Jack of All Trades. Let’s take that a step further. You have to achieve a degree of mastery. You have to be strong, have incredible levels of endurance, and be capable of sustained bursts of intense activity. All while tired, hungry, cold, or worse. You can’t train like a bodybuilder. You can't be sore for a week after 'leg' day, and unfortunately you can’t afford to specialise like a powerlifter. You have other abilities that need developing, things like your cardiovascular system, work capacity, and occupational skills. Anyone in the field knows it’s a constant juggling act trying to become (and stay) superhuman in multiple fitness domains. Maximal-strength is a foundational physical attribute for the tactical athlete. In English, this means it’s very important and contributes to the development of other physical qualities. If you’ve spent time in a combat arms military unit, you won't deny the benefits maximal-strength brings in terms of resiliency, load bearing capability, and injury prevention. Now it's pretty well established that the most efficient way to increase maximal-strength is through the use of barbells, due to the ease of incremental loading. However, the best barbell programs that currently exist aren’t designed with the tactical athlete in mind. Most of the good ones were developed by powerlifters and pure strength athletes. These programs are excellent, but seldom compatible with an operational lifestyle. On the flip side, most existing ‘tactical’ fitness programs give progressive barbell work lip-service only. You’ll get an occasional front squat or push-press mixed in with box jumps and burpees. But NO sustained or calculated progression model. The tactical community still tends to equate anything barbell-related with bodybuilding and non-functional training. TB fills that gap. It's a barbell strength program designed specifically for the tactical community using correct principles and best practices. TB will increase your maximal-strength and strength-endurance while taking into account the need to simultaneously train other fitness attributes. Tactical Barbell will provide you with a method of strength training designed for your unique arena. Periodization based, with a simple progression model that allows for a great degree of customization. You won’t find cables, balance boards or medicine balls here. What you'll get is a reliable, repeatable, cutting edge system designed to increase your strength dramatically, in a manner that leaves you time and energy to train all those other things you need to be good at. No fluff. No frills. If you’re in the tactical arena, you know talk is cheap. There's a built in strength testing component in this program. You will know whether or not your strength has increased, and by how much. Simple.

Powerlifting training can skyrocket a man's strength, health and confidence. This book is for the mature athlete or fitness enthusiast who wants to experience the huge benefits of power training. Competing is optional.For mature athletes, there are always some risks associated with lifting "big iron". Great gains are possible if an athlete follows the "training smart" system in this book.

He began his powerlifting career at age 48 and competed at the national and international level for 25 years. During his life, he has competed in eight different organized sports. Based on extensive research and his long career, in this 300-page book, the author provides detailed instructions on how to master the skills of strength needed for heavy lifting; a unique conditioning program to reduce the chance of injury; extremely detailed instruction (with pictures) for properly performing the squat, bench press and deadlift; and five complete training routines for the squat, bench press and deadlift, along with dozens of tips on building a powerful body over age 50. These are probably the most detailed instructions on optimal lifting technique available anywhere.In addition, the author provides detailed instruction on the mental approach to training, nutrition, injury management, plus training plans and a full chapter on how to prepare for and compete in a powerlifting meet.An Amazon review of the authors book Mastering the Squat (5 star rating) "This book is a gem...

If you want to be muscular, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without steroids, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements...then you want to read this book. Here's the deal: Getting into awesome shape isn't nearly as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe. You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars per month on the worthless supplements that steroid freaks shill in advertisements. You don't need to constantly change up your exercise routines to "confuse" your muscles. I'm pretty sure muscles lack cognitive abilities, but this approach is a good way to just confuse you instead. You don't need to burn through buckets of protein powder every month, stuffing down enough protein each day to feed a third world village. You don't need to toil away in the gym for a couple of hours per day, doing tons of sets, supersets, drop sets, giant sets, etc. (As a matter of fact, this is a great way to stunt gains and get nowhere.) You don't need to grind out hours and hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and love handles and get a shredded six-pack. (How many flabby treadmillers have you come across over the years?) You don't need to completely abstain from "cheat" foods while getting down to single-digit body fat percentages. If you plan cheat meals correctly, you can actually speed your metabolism up and accelerate fat loss. In this book you're going to learn something most guys will never know: The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes putting on 10 to 15 pounds of quality lean mass a breeze...and it only takes 8-12 weeks. This book reveals secrets like... The 6 biggest myths and mistakes of building muscle that stunt 99% of guys' muscle gains. (These BS lies are pushed by all the big magazines and even by many trainers.) How to get a lean, cut physique that you love (and that girls drool over) by spending no more than 5 percent of your time each day. The 4 laws of muscle growth that, when applied, turn your body into an anabolic, muscle-building machine. You'll be shocked at how easy it really is to get big once you know what you're doing... How to develop a lightning-fast metabolism that burns up fat quickly and leaves you feeling full of energy all day long. The carefully-selected exercises that deliver MAXIMUM results for your efforts, helping you build a big, full chest, a wide, tapered back, and bulging biceps. A no-BS guide to supplements that will save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year that you would've wasted on products that are nothing more than bunk science and marketing hype. How to get shredded while still indulging in the "cheat" foods that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream. And a whole lot more! The bottom line is you CAN achieve that "Hollywood hunk" body without having your life revolve around it--no long hours in the gym, no starving yourself, no grueling cardio that turns your stomach. Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you're doing to make such startling gains. Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day. SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS! With this book you'll also get a free 75-page bonus report from the author called "The Year One Challenge." In this bonus report, you'll learn exactly how to train, eat, and supplement to make maximum gains in your first year of training. By applying what you learn in the book and in this report, you can make more progress in one year than most guys make in three, four, or even five (seriously!).
