There is No System consists of a series of essays tracing the fall of American weightlifting from international predominance in the 1940- 50s and the gradual decline into the 1960s; as documented in the pages of Strength and Health magazine. The basic premise of the essays centers around the fact the USA failed to develop a rational sport science based system of training for weightlifting. “…the rise to international prominence of American weightlifting in the 1940s and rapid fall by the end of the 1950s was determined to be primarily the result of a national failure to develop a rational, scientific based training system designed to acquire the skills requisite of modern weightlifting”. In actuality, the preeminence of the USA in international weightlifting in the 1940s - 1950s was in part an illusion. It was due in no small part to the fact the infrastructure, athlete base and so forth of pre – WWII powers Germany, Austria and many other countries were decimated by the war. Beginning in 1960, the introduction and commercialization of the power rack by Bob Hoffman and the York Barbell company further exacerbated the decline. This product was touted as the savior to America’s declining competitiveness. The marketing of the power rack to weightlifters only made matters worse for American weightlifting. Furthermore, it greatly facilitated the commercialized foundation of the strength and conditioning profession; which was to follow. This commercialization continues up to the present time; fostering confusion between product and science based methodology. The final essay is contrast/comparison of dynamic and static exercises and techniques; the irrational application of static (powerlifting/bodybuilding) techniques to strength training for dynamic sports: “Any attempt to compare the strength/power developed from dynamic sports such as weightlifting with that developed from powerlifting and bodybuilding is a logic of fallacy. The power expressed in weightlifting exercises has almost nothing in common with powerlifting/bodybuilding.”

Drawing on empirical research, this fascinating new book explores the embodied experiences of ‘gym goers’ and the fitness cultures that are constructed within gyms and fitness spaces. Gym Bodies offers a personal, interactive, ethnographic account of the multiplicity of contemporary gym practices, spaces and cultures, including bodybuilding, CrossFit and Spinning. It argues that gym bodies are historically constructed, social, sensual, emotional and political; that experience intersects with multiple embodied identities; and that fitness cultures are profoundly important in shaping the body in wider contemporary culture. This is important reading for students, tutors and researchers working in sport and exercise studies, sociology of the body, health studies, leisure, cultural studies, gender and education. It is also a valuable resource for policy makers and practitioners within the fields of sport, leisure, health and education.
