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!

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.

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.

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.

By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 15 2008
Format: Paperback
Sometimes, I get frustrated when exercising. I know that a little strength training is supposed to be good for my bones while promoting weight loss. Unfortunately, I usually only have half a clue about what I'm doing. Thus, much of my workout is spent worrying whether I'm doing the movements correctly, hoping I don't hurt myself, and wishing I had a personal trainer to tell me what to do.

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.

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).
