Publisher Comments:

Discover for yourself the magic of Strength Training Anatomy, one of the best-selling strength training books ever published

Get an intricate look at strength training from the inside out. Strength Training Anatomy, with over 850,000 copies already sold, brings anatomy to life with more than 400 full-color illustrations. This detailed artwork showcases the muscles used during each exercise and delineates how these muscles interact with surrounding joints and skeletal structures. Like having an X-ray for each exercise, the information gives you a multilateral view of strength training not seen in any other resource.

This bestseller also contains new information on common strength training injuries and preventive measures to help you exercise safely. Chapters are devoted to each major muscle group, with 115 total exercises for arms, shoulders, chest, back, legs, buttocks, and abdomen.

Book News Annotation:

Now when you feel the burn, you can locate exactly what is on fire. Strength training expert and journalist Delavier provides extremely detailed instructions and illustrations (male and female) for exercising the arms, shoulders, chest, back, legs, buttocks and abdomen, showing both musculature and bones at each step of the process. He includes instructions on exactly how to position the body and equipment, when to breathe, and how to make the most of each rep. Along with the 115 exercises Delavier explains common injuries from the inside out, along with advice on how to prevent them and recover from them. He includes renderings of major muscle groups and a handy fold-out bookmark to hold your place while you are doing all those dead lifts. While intended for serious strength trainees, the illustrations could also be useful to anyone studying the human anatomy and human kinetics.

==Lots of Strengths==

With over 450,000 copies sold, this book is arguably the best book of its kind. What's it useful for? Mainly to help the reader (from the weekend athlete to the athletic trainer to the professional bodybuilder) figure out what exercises work what muscles.

It's neatly divided up into sections (arms, shoulders, chest, back, etc.), so all you really have to do is flip to one of these sections and it will have detailed pictures of various exercises and exactly which muscles are involved.

A great reference to keep have around, I give it five stars easy. Readers who lift weights regularly might also be interested "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff" to avoid shoulder problems a lot of lifters eventually get.
