Editorial Reviews

Review

This volume is like having an X-ray of each exercise or stretch one uses in their bodybuilding program. The full-color, detailed illustrations show users how a change in position can alter the muscle emphasis or improve safety or effectiveness... The illustrations are beautifully executed and well labeled. The layout provides a lot of whitespace and lends itself to either browsing or finding specific information... Would be useful in public libraries, in academic libraries with sports medicine programs, and in the personal libraries of fitness trainers. (Shannon Graff Hysell American Reference Books Annual 2012 2012-03-01)

The illustrations are great and the explanations of the moves are well done. It is especially nice that all of the illustrations are with males; this was a selling point for me because females have a slightly different anatomy, and all the competing books on the market have large sections with the female muscular structure.

He does put a few of the traditional exercises in different categories. For instance, shrugs are usually grouped with the shoulders, but he places them with the back. Sometimes so many muscles are named that it gets slightly confusing.

Great book.

One of the best books on building muscles. Just a very good book explaining how certain exercises build different muscle groups. Found this book at my local Library and liked it so much I ordered it from Amazon so I would always have it.
