A Great Reference

This is the only bodybuilding book I have kept for years.One of the things I like about it the most is her no nonsense approach to exercising during pregnancy. I also appreciate that she's not as "hard" looking as other women bodybuilders, why this matters, I don't know, maybe she's easier to relate to.


I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is very well put together and informative. I found the advice and the illustrations to be among the finest in any bodybuilding book I have yet seen. Langer gives straightforward information that is practical for any level of fitness. Both men and women can use the advice in this book. It was well worth the price I paid for both my wife and I.

Body Flex Body Magic

Where has this book been hiding? When will Ms. Langer update it with a revised edition? This is one of the best books on weight training I have read, and I have read a number of them. My wife and I both use it in our weight workouts, so it's not merely for women, and we both have learned things from it that our personal trainers never taught us. The pictures showing the start/finish and midpoint of each exercise, as well as the clear and concise explanatory text, make it easy to understand the precise movements required, and to avoid common mistakes. The variety of exercises for each muscle group, the inventive new exercises originated by Ms. Langer, and the personal insights she shares from her own experience, make this a highly useful book for men and women of all ages (I'm 50) and experience levels, from novice to experienced body builders. It's simply a marvelous book!

One of the best....

I bought this book a while back for my wife to learn weight training. It has proven itself time and time again as an invaluable source of great information on physical fitness through weights. My wife used this book and performed the recommendations even through her pregnancy. THE RESULTS WERE FANTASTIC. The pictures are super and the advice is really on target. It should be on every beginners bookshelf and even those who train for years. All round one of the best books for women on the subject. Best part is, it is not just for women, I think most men could learn a lot from Anja; I did!

Fantastic book with detailed descriptions & photos!

I'm fairly new to the world of fitness but have been working for about a year now on becoming more lean, muscular, and healthy. Toward those goals, I've purchased 7 books on muscle & strengh development specific to women. Body Flex-Body Magic is definitely my favorite! Ms. Langer, along with co-author Bill Reynolds, have presented a huge amount of information in a clear and concise way. They have divided the book into basic, intermediate, and advanced level training routines; within those categories, they provide detailed information on how to do the exercises, what they accomplish, and common mistakes, along with photographs of each exercise. I find the common mistakes information, specific to each exercise, particularly helpful as it points out positional errors that can lead to injury or just plain ineffectual results. The book also contains great information on nutrition, aerobic exercise, stretching, bodysculpting/bodybuilding, and working out while pregnant.My highest recommendation!
