5.0 out of 5 stars Strength Training Anatomy Feb. 15 2008
Sometimes, I get frustrated when exercising. I know that a little strength training is supposed to be good for my bones while promoting weight loss. Unfortunately, I usually only have half a clue about what I'm doing. Thus, much of my workout is spent worrying whether I'm doing the movements correctly, hoping I don't hurt myself, and wishing I had a personal trainer to tell me what to do.

Strength Training Anatomy is definitely a better alternative. This book includes 15 different strength training exercises (free weights and resistance), focusing on the arms, shoulders, chest, back, legs, and buttocks. The proper range of motion is illustrated for each exercise (including variations) with the particular muscle groups highlighted in full colour. Both male and female body types are shown. The text also includes special features about common injuries: what causes these problems and how to avoid them.

Now, when working out, I am far more confident. I know which muscle groups are supposed to be in motion. I know how to avoid potential injury dangers. I even have an understanding of how to adapt these exercises to best suit my body form and abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for people that are training May 11 2009
It was perfect for my needs! I am training in a gym since many years and I like to change my routine. That book was excellent to give me new ideas and to really know how each exercice stimulate my muscle and gives good advice about how to do the move without hurting you. (sorry for my unperfect english)

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Great Book May 6 2008
I love this book, it has taught me so much, and I am being honest. The only problem I have with this book is that I wish that there were more bicep, tricep and deltoid workouts, but either than that, it's fabulous.

An excellent choice for anyone who is serious about training.
Wonderfully illustrated and easy to follow, various exercises are offered for all body parts, and the illustrations show you exactly which muscles are being targeted.
The best book that I have come across relating to weight training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn what muscle you are working out May 23 2008
Great book. No more am I unsure what muscle I should feel working when I do a particular weightlifting move, it's clearly articulated in this book!

I think this book would also make for a good reference book for a physiology student.
