Format: Paperback
Using a simple color-coded schema, Delavier combines sound anatomy with bodybuilding exercises to give a unique perspective that will improve your workouts and expand your mind as well as your muscle size. Even though the models for the illustrations have the bulky, engorged muscles that accompany chronic steroid supplementation, and are sometimes depicted in the ludicrous pin-striped, post-Flashdance thongwear popular in California gyms in the early 90s, the illustrations are amazing. The selective use of color makes anatomically relevant highlights leap out. For example, the reverse wrist curl comes to life as the humerus and extensor carpi radialis longus, extensor carpi radialis brevis, extensor digitorum, extensor digiti minimi, extensor ulnaris, ane extensor indicus all are labeled in the context of the lift, so you know exactly what muscles are working while you're doing the movement.
If you are using weights to increase your strength, muscle size, or change your body, this book is one you should own, in conjunction with another book that tells you how to lift weights such as these three, which I recommend wholeheartedly: Arnold's Encylopedia of Bodybuilding (the quintessential 70s bodybuilding book), Frederick Hatfield's Bodybuilding: A Scientific Approach (the best 80s bodybuilding book), and Bob Paris's Natural Bodybuilding (the great 90s and 00s bodybuilding book).

The reason I say this is a helpful workout aide is because I had a serious problem incorporating intensity into my exercises. I just want into them as much as others were. After I got this book, I checked the exercises that I lacked lifting intensity in, and my problem was gone. By knowing what area I was primarily working, and focusing on them, imagining them in a red color (as in this book), I was able to finish a workout proud of myself, knowing I put as much intensity into it as I could. The art is stunning. Personally, I believe that it is a must-have book for anyone into weight trainers, but hey, all the other reviews say so too. Experience it yourself.

No matter what level you do your resistance/strength training this is a must have. If you could only afford to buy one book on the subject, this is it. Execellent diagams accompanied by clear, concise and accurate text. Can't say enough good about this book. Suits both sexes.

Format: Paperback
I found the book most useful for determining if my workouts covered all muscle groups and specific muscles within each group. Highly recommended for experienced weightlifters. Beginning weightlifters would probably need additional assistance from another book and/or personal trainer to develop workouts. Book details movements of over 100 exercises showing many alternatives. Also details in text and pictures the exact muscles involved in each exercise. Color coding of muscle groups helpful though I found some errors.

Am not using the book for strength training. Use it instead as a reference for stretching, or, if injured, to see which muscles are involved.
The strength exercises are the same reliable ones we've been doing for years. Interesting to see what is happening beneath the surface.

Format: Paperback
I have been looking for a book like this for a long time, I wish I could rate it higher. It is very well illustrated and should be on any everyones lists for books to buy when weight training. You will see every muscle a specific exersize targets and it also shows the minor muscles that come into play. This book DOES NOT put together a weight training routine but you can easily put one together by learning what muscles do what. The book is divided into seven section; arms, shoulders, chest, back, legs, buttocks, and abdomen. and each of these sections have anywhere from 9 to 21 execizes to perform. My hat goes off to Frederic Delavier for his awesome illustrations and this well put together book.

I was first given a copy of this book as a gift. At the time I was recovering from an injury and looking for "other" ways to work the injured area. Since that time I have had to replace it twice, as my daughter "borrowed" my first copy, as did my neighbor with the second copy. I liked the book enough to replace it [twice] and would do so again.
