Execllent Anatomical Reference for Weight Training

This book is an excellent weight training reference for insight into the anatomy of the major muscle groups, and the exercises best suited to train specific muscles.The book is broken down into seven major muscle groups: arms, shoulders, chest, back, legs, buttocks, and abdomen. Within each muscle group are multiple exercises, each comprised of detailed anotomical illustrations, instructions on performing the exercises, and key information such as variations (for specific focus on particular muscles) and warnings (to aviod injury).Using this book, one could easily select a variety of exercises to build a total body workout program. The selection of exercises also allows for some routine variation to keep one's workout from getting stale.The illustrations are of an exellent quality, as are the materials. The pages are of heavyweight paper, with a semi-glossy finish.Although I rated this title highly, I did so with the understanding that it suits a very specific purpose, and is not a general purpose introduction or guide to weight training. This is an ANATOMY REFERENCE, specific to selected weight training exercises. It does not contain any other information concerning weight training, diet, exercise, etc. In fact, there is not even a brief introduction by the author, simply the reference material itself. But, in terms of its intended purpose, it is an excellent reference. If you already have some sort of "Bodybuilding Encyclopedia", you probably already posess much of the information contained in this title. Having no interest in the history, self-promotion, and general testosterone driven attitudes of many of those types of titles (as well as the phonebook sized package), I much prefer this concise book as an exercise reference.

Great learning tool

I bought this book because it's hard to find a strength training book that isn't full of oversized bodybuilders talking strictly about building HUGE muscles. This book is perfect for the average person who just wants a scientific explanation of which muscles do what and the proper strength training technique to use for each. I found almost all common exercises included, and they are easily organized by body part.


This book is one of the best book I have found in this subject. I been working out for more that 20 years and studied every major book in this subject and never found anything that comes close to this book. The clarity and illustrations are the best that I seen. Don't get me wrong book such as Arnold's Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding are fine and very informative, but they concentrate on explanation (sometimes confusing) rather than Illustration which get the point accross. I HIGHLY recommendt this book for anything body who is interest in exersice and weight lifting. This book is a must for any serious athelete or fitness person. This is best for men and women as well (I never seen such a well illustrated book about women exercises). BUY IT AND ENJOY THIS JEWEL...
