Stupid shit Jason Blaha says thread

This guy is regarded as some god of knowledge on /fit/. "If Jason Blaha said it, it must be true!" Along with that, I've noticed a rise in people wanting to do steroids, and accusations of people being on steroids (DELTS TOO BIG, OBVIOUSLY NOT NATTY) ever since his videos became popular. I don't think I've ever learned anything new from him. He either regurgitates the same info we've all seen a hundred times before, or says some seriously stupid shit that makes no sense. This thread is dedicated to said stupid shit as proof that you can't just assume he's right all the time.
-Called out Layne Norton and accused him of being a fake natty. Now, I actually agree that Layne is a roiding liar, but one piece of "evidence" he used is that he watched some of Layne's videos, and the way he psyches himself up and screams for a lift is very consistent with that of a steroid user. Fucking seriously? He also said that Layne's powerlifting numbers are too high to be attained naturally. Ben Rice is a powerlifter who also claims to be natural, and he has even bigger numbers than Layne, including a raw squat that's 100 pounds heavier. Jason Blaha recently made a video where he gushes over how awesome Ben Rice is, and told all of his subscribers to go over to his YouTube channel and congratulate him for setting some world records at a powerlifting meet (?????????????)
-Said that boxing is only good as a sport, and that being a trained boxer would not help you very much in a real fight.
/fit/zen book thread

Hey guys lets start a /fit/zen book thread.
Pretty much, I have a job where I have a lot of downtime with nothing to do, so instead of wasting that time just doing bullshit like watching TV on my phone, I decided I'm going to read books, learn stuff and therefore improve my life instead.
So give me everything you got guys. I'm looking for books about nutrition and health, lifting, self improvement, human psychology, and little 'mindhack' type stuff. Also I am interested in stuff about interesting accounts of corporate drama, and other good business/success advice type books.
For example, my first book will be "Blink: The power of thinking without thinking" by Malcom Gladwell. Its only $3 on Nook and looks to have good reviews.
tl;dr: i want books to read that will teach me and help me improve my life

Enlighten me, /fit/, give me your most effective bycep routine. I haven't had bycep doms for 2 months, stuck with the same weight on curls. My bench, squat, lift are all improving, but not bycep...
Tried drop sets, 21s, statics. All feel good, but dont improve the max.
