Anatomy of Exercise: A Trainer's Inside Guide to Your Workout Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anatomy of Exercise is revolutionary for its insights into how different muscles of the body actually work during exercise. The book is organized by body area and shows common sequences in the progression of a typical workout. Lifelike anatomical illustrations demonstrate each exercise and reveal in colorful detail exactly which muscles are engaged, which are being conditioned and how those muscles respond.

The following features help the reader gain the greatest benefit from each exercise and thereby improve fitness and well-being:

Detailed, full-color anatomical illustrations for all the exercisesAnnotations identifying the active and stabilizing musclesConcise how-to instructions for each exerciseIdentification of the specific muscles that benefit the most from each exerciseSuggested modifications for different levels of difficultyInstructions on stabilizing the body throughout each movementA visual index of exercises that allows easy navigation through the bookA glossary of anatomical terms.

No other book provides such rich detail tailored to the general reader. Beginners, those already committed to exercise, competing athletes, trainers, coaches, physiotherapists, massage therapists and the many others involved in fitness will find Anatomy of Exercise fascinating, instructive and practical.

Synopsis:

A full color anatomy book that illustrates how the body works during exercise. Organized by area and common workout sequences, each exercise is illustrated by photographs and anatomical illustrations detail how the muscles are engaged and respond.
