Book Description

March 9 2010 Sports Anatomy

Over 1 million copies sold! With new exercises, additional stretches, and more of Frédéric Delavier’s signature illustrations, you’ll gain a whole new understanding of how muscles perform during strength exercises. This one-of-a-kind best-seller combines the visual detail of top anatomy texts with the best of strength training advice.

 

Many books explain what muscles are used during exercise, but no other resource brings the anatomy to life like Strength Training Anatomy. Over 600 full-color illustrations reveal the primary muscles worked along with all the relevant surrounding structures, including bones, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue.

 

Like having an X-ray for each exercise, the anatomical depictions show both superficial and deep layers and detail how various setup positions affect muscle recruitment and emphasize underlying structures. New pages show common strength training injuries in a fascinating light and offer precautions to help you exercise safely.

 

Author and illustrator Frédéric Delavier is the former editor in chief of the French publication PowerMag. He is a journalist for Le Monde du Muscle and a contributor to Men’s Health Germany and several other strength training publications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to your fitness library July 17 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For anyone who remember fitness and bodybuilding magazines from the 80s when they put in a physiology section with diagrams then you'll appreciate this. I am visual for a lot of stuff and really appreciate seeing what muscle groups will be at work. This book is quite easy to go through and nice to read. Luc

This book is amazing! I'm into amateur bodybuilding and science. The anatomy is very very useful. It helps build that mind muscle connection. It allows you to know what muscles you should be contracting during what excercise. I'm actually going to buy the stretching anatomy book too!

The exercises are somewhat limited but the book does a great job of depicting which muscles are used during certain exercises. It was helpful for an exercise prescription for my Graduate Kinesiology program.

Format:Paperback
This is a great book with a lot of detail on numerous workouts and which muscles are activated. Provides different positioning variations for the same exercise. Best book out there. Only wish there was a portable version to carry with me to the gym.
