How To Eat, Move and Be Healthy! by Paul Chek – This is a great introduction to Paul Chek’s work. It is a simple, direct, yet comprehensive guide to helping you live a healthier life. Paul’s writing is very informative, easy to read, and entertaining at the same time. A great reference book.
Agatsu Kettlebell Training EBook by Shawn Mozen– Available at agatsu.com This is an amazing introduction to kettlebells, teaching solid basics to help you develop a safe and effective kettlebell practice. Filled with full colour reference photos and detailed instructions, this is a must-have for any kettlebell user, beginner to advanced.
Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life by Thich Nhat Hanh and Dr. Lilian Cheung– A great introduction to mindfulness training as well as mindful eating.
Strength Training Anatomy by Frederic Delavier *– Beautifully illustrated guide to strength training that addresses proper technique and preventative measures to ensure your workouts are safe and productive. A reference book that is never far from my fingertips.
Women’s Strength Training Anatomy by Frederic Delavier *– An excellent companion to the above book, with a focus on the female core and lower body, as it differs from that of the male. “This book exclusively caters to the mechanics and musculature of the female form”.
*note: some readers have called the illustrations in Delavier’s work “overly provocative”. While I disagree, it is worth noting.
Stretching Anatomy by Nelson and Kokkonen– Another great reference guide in the style of Delavier’s work with a focus on proper stretching technique.
