From the Publisher
"Without question, this book is a must for anyone interested in strength training or in teaching strength training. No other book more clearly represents the functional anatomy of nearly every resistance training exercise. The illustrations are highly detailed and the material is accurate. This book will spend very little time on your bookshelf because you will constantly be referring to it."
