At 9to5strength we are looking to give you the resources to become completely self reliant on how you eat, how you exercise and how you live.

We want to equip YOU with the TOOLS to do this, which comes in the form of KNOWLEDGE.

Every month we will post a book or a series of video lectures that help you understand your body and how to get in better shape and live a happier life.

You can read these on your commute, in bed after a long day, or over the weekend – whenever you can find time.

PRO TIP: Take notes! When you read a book, use a blank sheet of paper as a bookmark and write down any interesting facts and information from the book. You won’t remember everything a year from now, so this condenses a whole book into 3-4 pages of key notes that are important to you.
