Grade 7 Up-Fitness expert Vedral offers up a practical and doable workout specifically aimed at helping adolescent girls tone and firm their muscles using free weights. The 20-minute routine alternates upper-body work one day with lower-body work the next, and requires only three sets of inexpensive dumbbells and a bench or step. The author emphasizes sound nutrition and exercise information, dispelling common myths related to weight training, offering balanced advice on eating, and listing tips for maintaining fitness in problem situations. She writes enthusiastically, encouraging girls to strive for excellence in their personal health and life choices. The exercises are clearly described, and illustrated with photos of teens performing the routines. The reason for each exercise is stated, and tips for doing it correctly are included. A good companion to Jake Steinfeld's Get Strong!: Body by Jake's Guide to Building Confidence, Muscles, and a Great Future for Teenage Guys (Fireside, 2002).

If you're having trouble getting through this workout, start easy and build up. For the first week, I did it without weights to learn the movements. And if it's taking any longer than 30 minutes for you, it's probably because you're just beginning and you're taking the time to flip pages, rest a little longer, and make sure you're doing each exercise correctly. Once you have it down, the upper body part (at least) should take only 20 minutes. The lower's harder for me, so it takes longer.
This book is inspirational and it works! I'm in my second week and I can tell a difference already! Plus it's easy and cheap to do at home, requiring minimal space and a few inexpensive dumbbells. Try it, you'll see!
P.S It's a great way to train for: cheerleading, football, hockey, soccer, horseback riding or any other sport!
