Preface to the Second Edition
Information has grown exponentially since The Poliquin Principles was first published in 1997. There is much valuable information in the original book, but now it is time for an updated version.
For example, rather than using a three-digit formula for prescribing exercise tempo, Charles has expanded this to a four-digit formula. Also, new discoveries in nutrition and functional medicine have led to the development of more effective supplement protocols, including the concept of peri-nutrition, in which supplements are used immediately before, during, and after a workout. In 1997 many of the supplements that Charles uses in these protocols had not yet been invented.
One major change in this new edition is the organization. Now there are two major sections: Part 1 defines the basic principles of strength training, and Part 2 shows how to apply these principles to training major body parts.
