4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid resource for women, April 18, 2009
This review is from: The New Rules of Lifting for Women: Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess (Paperback)
As an age 50+ woman, this book has provided me with exactly the information I need to get started on a weight training program designed not for body builders but rather for people like me who want to be strong and healthy. The introduction to the physiological rationale for the program is compelling. The exercises are explained and illustrated well so that a novice can do them properly and safely. I appreciate the adaptations that are included for those working out at home. I haven't done much yet with the chapters on nutrition, but the recipes look good.

My suggestions for making this a 5 star book would be to include chapters that address the following: 1) a list of equipment that you will need if just starting out (and maybe what to look for re: design and construction), 2) a stretching routine that should be performed at the end of a training session, and 3) advice on how to continue a weight training program when you reach the end of the recommended 6 month program.

Overall - a good solid resource!
