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.
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).

Second time I buy this book and it is THE reference. It is THE best. Get it you won't regret it. Especially for the price.Published 3 months ago by Francis
I liked this book but I wish there was a little more text upfront explaining approach and theory. 3-5 pages would be enough. Many books go too far into theory.Published 3 months ago by RF
