One of the best books to show you exactly how to work which muscles in your body. He gives excellent instruction and guidance. Yes, it is an older book so you will see that in the pictures, but the information is the best.

I bought this book as an attempt to find inspiration and new ideas, to start exercising again. In fact, I bought many other books to motivate me. There are however, only a few good ones on the market in my opinion. But what has been working for me in the past, is going back to the basics and build muscle and workout routines from scratch, and from the inside. I always knew, Arnold wrote books on body building, and I thought; who should I learn from, if not from one of the best? And I have no complains about this volume at all - except that the language is a bit outdated. There are also many more types of diets, not just the low-carb kinds, as Arnold suggest in this book. (He suggest 30-60 grams of carb/day for women to loose weight, especially body fat). I am willing to try, and overall, I love this book; its simple, straightforward, explains about the workout movements and it did inspire me. It IS basic, but I think that is what gives it a fresh point; weigh loss without any fluffs, just building muscle, shape and eat sensible. I assume, that if this book would be rewritten, it would be rewritten on the nutrition area (this book was published in 1979, and since then, research has gotten more extensive and thorough. We know more about food now, then back in the seventies). Still, "Arnold's Body shaping for Women" has solid, good points and techniques, in case you are new to fitness or need to learn the basics (again), or for the first time. To me, this book is one of the best on body shaping for women.

Bought it mostly for historical value- I like collecting old fitness books and such. There is some good stuff in there [Arnold knows what works!], but also has a lot of outdated material- which should go without saying, as this was printed a long time ago.

If you can get your hands on this book its great on so many different levels. First it is an older book some of the references are out of date, which makes it comical to read, but the techniques and general concepts are tried and true. It's good for "housewives" that plan on exercising at home, many of the workouts include household objects that are in most homes. I would definitely get a second book, but this is a good start and an amusing but good read.

Great book! From a time when people didn't actually think woman are equal physically. They are the "weaker sex".

Good book for women who want to tone up and not bulk out! Had this book years ago, so happy to have bought another copy.
