1.0 out of 5 stars Some bad form & weird comments May 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'm really shocked that no one mentioned the fact that Brad says wearing high heels is a good way to work your calves! No mention whatsoever that high heels cause bad posture, increase your risk of injury to ankle/knee/lower back. There are so many other ways to work your calves!
Also, the book shows overhead shoulder presses with the bar behind the back, which is widely considered to be dangerous. Several of the pictures for squats & lunges show the front knee bending beyond the ankle & toes. Even a basic body sculpting class at a gym will give you that form pointer. Further, deadlifts, which can be really dangerous if done improperly, are shown with the head down & back rounded--totally wrong form.
I'm not a doctor or PT or weight training snob...But I've used three different PTs before, and have spent not an insignficant amount of time reading various strength training sources on the
web, and I've never seen any of these moves/forms recommended.
I bought the book b/c I thought it would help me come up with my own routines. It does seem helpful in that regard (hence 1 star as opposed to 0), but the egregious errors make me worry about everything else in the book. If you're using this book, go to a *good* PT to check your form!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book! March 22 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sculpting Her Body Perfect is one of the best women's weight training books I have ever read. There is a lot of great information about isolation versus compound exercises, push-pull muscles, cardio training and weight training intensity.
Sculpting starts by outlining why women's body sculpting is more challenging than men's body sculpting, and provides reasons why women should do weight training. He then moves to his body sculpting program, which he claims will provide tone but not bulk to women's bodies. There are three phases, and in each phase you weight train 3x per week, with cardio 3-5x/week. What changes is how the weight training is structured.
Phase one is a body conditioning phase, and includes three full body days. Each day includes one exercise per body part, changing the exercise for each day. (E.g., for day 1 quads you might do squats, day 2 lunges, and day 3 leg press.) For each exercise you do 3 sets of 15 reps, at 75% maximum weight. Each body part is worked 3x per week. This stage is to build muscle -- he stresses that you can't shape muscle unless you first have muscle. He recommends staying with this phase for 3-6 months, and says you will reach 50% of your potential with this phase.
Phase two is the toning and shaping phase, and lasts at least 6 months. Here the body is split into two: e.g., day 1 - chest, back, shoulders and calves; and day 2- biceps, triceps, quads, hamstrings and abs. You still do weights three days a week, but alternate day 1 and day 2. Each body part is worked 3 x every two weeks. You use two exercises per body part in a superset, still doing 3 sets of 15 reps for each exercise. The intensity of the weights is increased in this phase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying, But Not Worth 5 Stars Dec 28 1999
By L. Owen
Format:Paperback
The first half of the book is pretty basic info that I did not find as useful as someone might who is new to resistance training. The latter half of the book outlines how to sculpt your body. For each major muscle group the author classifies exercises into three categories depending on what parts of the muscles are being worked. By doing some or all the exercise he suggests, you can sculpt your body. What I find really useful is to know each of the categories so that I can ensure that I am working all parts of my back, for example. Now I can see that there may be times that I was doing two exercises that were working the same areas. When developing my program, I will refer to each category and make sure I have selected exercises that will cover all the categories.
The book does have some flaws. The author stresses at the beginning of the book that it is important to know what muscles you are working so that you can focus on them while exercising. But when he illustrates each exercise, he does not tell you which specific muscles you are working. Most other books will list the latin names of the muscles you are working, and some even illustrate the specific muscles, which is quite useful. He suggests a limited number of exercises for each category. Some of the exercises he mentions you can't find in the book (such as "spider curls"). When you look at the illustrated exercises, he does not tell you what category it is working. You have to keep referring back to an earlier page to figure that out. There are so many more exercises you could do for each of the categories but he does not mention them. It would have been nice if he had a chart of exercises that you could do without having to illustrate all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any woman looking to shape up Nov. 11 2002
Format:Paperback
Great book that covers everything you want to know about exercise for women. It is jam packed with info and does an excellent job explaining the strategies for toning up all areas of the body. The exercise descriptions are clear and concise and the photos make it easy to follow. The author has a motivational writing style and organizes the chapters in a logical fashion. And the home based exercise finder in the beginning makes it easy to develop a home workout (I do my workout in basement gym with a set of dumbbells and strength bands). I've gotten more out of this book than years of subscriptions to all the fitness mags combined.
