I've been working out for 10+ years and this book is a must. Delavier's details in illustration help the reader with thoroughly understanding the material and movements of the exercises. This is a must for someone who wants to understanding anatomy as well as the proper way to lift in order to mitigate injury.

Format: Paperback
With over 450,000 copies sold, this book is arguably the best book of its kind. What's it useful for? Mainly to help the reader (from the weekend athlete to the athletic trainer to the professional bodybuilder) figure out what exercises work what muscles.

It's neatly divided up into sections (arms, shoulders, chest, back, etc.), so all you really have to do is flip to one of these sections and it will have detailed pictures of various exercises and exactly which muscles are involved.

A great reference to keep have around, I give it five stars easy. Readers who lift weights regularly might also be interested Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff to avoid shoulder problems a lot of lifters eventually get.

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!

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.

I use this book as a reference to put together my training plans. It has served me very well, it could contain a lot more exercises though. There are also actual anatomy sections about common body building injuries - very helpful.
