|Professor Kilgore has more than 20
years experience as an author writing and illustrating books and articles
about anatomy, physiology, professional fitness practice, and training.
His first endeavor into textbook authorship was "Dynamics of Sport &
Exercise: Physical Activity from the Cell to Society". His most famous
books were concept and co-authorship of "Starting Strength" (1st and 2nd
Editions) and "Practical Programming for Strength Training". His goal in
authorship has been to create a set of books useful for the professional
fitness trainer, and the trainee, covering the essential elements of designing
exercise programs that produce predictable fitness gains. To date this
has resulted in the strength training books above, the comprehensive fitness
book "FIT", and three books presenting the underpinning science of fitness,
"Anatomy without a Scalpel", "Basic Fitness Testing", and "Fitness Physiology"
The distinguishing factor, setting Professor Kilgore apart from other science and fitness "experts", is that he is not limited to experiences in one domain of the fitness professions - science based or practice based. He has beeen a nationally or internationally competitive athlete, a coach of beginning and international caliber athletes, an award winning artist, and a soldier, who also possesses a doctorate from the Department of Anatomy & Physiology within the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. His works are informed by science and broad real world experiences.
