Book Description

July 24 2007
The easiest, most inexpensive way to build muscle strength, size, and power turns out to be the best, with this supremely effective guide from the world’s largest men’s magazine

Workout fads and fitness equipment come and go, but as trainers and bodybuilders know: nothing tops a simple set of dumbbells for convenience, reliability, and versatility when you are trying to build muscles and get in shape. In this book, Myatt Murphy, a fitness expert and longtime contributor to Men’s Health, shows readers how to use dumbbells to develop just about every part of their bodies.

For anyone who believes that dumbbells can be used only for arms and shoulders, Myatt Murphy proves them wrong. Featuring 200 photographs, Men’s Health Ultimate Dumbbell Exercises demonstrates how to perform a total body workout and get maximum results. There are exercises here—lunges, squats, dead lifts, curls, shrugs, kickbacks, presses, and more—that develop abs, arms, chest, legs, and shoulders, along with innovative new ways to get the most of this versatile piece of strength-training equipment.

With instructions for creating literally thousands of dumbbell exercises for the novice to advanced lifter, Men’s Health Ultimate Dumbbell Exercises will be an indispensable addition to any home gym.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be a dumbbell after reading this book. Oct. 30 2008
By J.H.
Just about everything you ever wanted to know about dumbbells. The book is divided up into three parts. The first part, the truth about dumbbells, explains all about the different types of dumbbells. The second part, the master moves, shows you the exercises you can do with a dumbbell which includes many pictures and instructions. This part makes up about 80% of the book. And finally, part three, a million moves for your muscles, essentially provides the reader with tips and suggested routines.

A great resource if you're into dumbbells, readers who lift regularly might also be interested in Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff to prevent rotator cuff tears a lot of lifters eventually get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book July 18 2010
By Vitali
I invested over 350 dollars in my dumbbells (bought Bowflex) and using them 7 months. This book opened new horizons to me of how they can be used. The book contains a lot of new exercises that I could not think about. I especially liked exercises for core part, I found a lot's of new one. Book presents very interesting approach for extending excises, creating new and making workout more effective. I liked the book. Must have with your pair of dumbbells. I suggest it.

There were some interesting items in the book, but based on the program that I have developed, they wouldn't be anymore helpful to me than what I already know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Misleading May 9 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book promises 21, 000 exercises but doesn`t really! There are several suggestions for each exercise that change it very slightly but I was hoping it was going to be a bit meatier than it is.
