The Complete Step-by-Step Guide to a Stronger, Sculpted Body
Strength training is an increasingly popular activity among men and women of all ages, and offers you a wealth of health benefits—from bigger muscles to stronger bones to increased confidence. With so much conflicting information available, however, how can you be sure that you are getting the best out of your training?
This authoritative, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated guide, written in conjunction with the BWLA (British Weight Lifters’ Association) by strength training experts with more than thirty years’ experience of coaching, contains everything you need to know to get the very best from your regimen, whether you want to develop your strength, or build your physique, or are training for specific gains within a chosen sport or activity.
The first chapter, Principles, provides you with all the basic nuts-and-bolts information about how strength training works, and the best ways to achieve your goals, whether you are an experienced gym user, or a complete novice.
The main section of the book covers more than 125 exercises in detail, working through the whole body systematically, providing a section on dynamic lifts for those with more experience. The exercises feature detailed anatomical artworks to show you exactly which muscles you are working, and clear step-by-step artworks to guide you through each movement. You are shown how to perform the exercise with optimum technique, and offered a range of helpful features such as variations, or tips on avoiding common mistakes to keep you safe and maximize the effectiveness of your training. And should you know what a particular exercise looks like but not what it’s called, you can locate it at a glance using the Exercise Gallery on page 8–11.
The final section offers a pragmatic, no-nonsense approach to the subject of training programs, and includes a range of specially commissioned goal-based examples to suit your needs, whatever your aims or experience, along with useful information on the key exercises for specific sports, to help you tailor your training to suit a particular activity.
Clear, user-friendly, and packed with extremely useful advice, Strength Training is the ultimate resource for anyone engaged in strength training.
