Books I Recommend

I love learning, and have always been surrounded by a fantastic collection of books, videos and magazines.

This is certainly the case when it comes to health & fitness works – it’s fair to say that I’ve checked out a lot of them over the years. Sharing everything from basic exercise techniques to the many, many ways to fine-tune your diet.

Here are a few personal favourites.

Bruce Lee : The Art of Expressing the Human Body

Bruce Lee : The Art of Expressing the Human Body

Bruce Lee & John Little

Paperback
If you’ve ever watched a Bruce Lee film and marveled at his strength, speed, agility, endurance, flexibility or muscularity, this book should take pride of place in your collection. Unlike many other writings covering everything from Lee’s training methods to nutrition, this book is based not on the recollections of people around him; but on Lee’s own notes. Brilliant.
