About the Author
Bill DeSimone is an experienced personal trainer, having started in 1983 at the Sports Training Institute in New York City, and now with his own studio, Optimal Exercise, in Cranbury, New Jersey. Along the way, he was certified by both the NSCA and ACE, and worked in corporate, commercial, academic, and private settings. His own training-induced injuries led to his unique approach, applying textbook biomechanics to conventional free-weight and machine instruction. He first presented this material in a manual, Moment Arm Exercise, in 2004; and since then, in a series of videos on You Tube; at conferences for the NSCA, Club Industry, and High Intensity Training; and as in-services for studio and gym staff. In addition to one-to-one training in the studio, Bill consults with individual trainees worldwide. Via video, Bill reviews the trainee’s form on the equipment available to the trainee and provides an email or telephone consultation. Bill’s presentation, “Basic Biomechanics for Weight Training”, is available for conferences and staff training. Contact Bill at email@example.com. For new video and updates, subscribe to the Congruent Exercise You Tube channel and Facebook page.

DeSimone, who seems to know more about the biomechanics of the human body than almost anyone alive, explains in detail the problems with many common gym exercises, and either how to fix them, or what movements to replace them with.
While this book is essential reading for anyone who lifts weights, I especially recommend it to young people who are just beginning their training careers. The best "cure" for a serious injury is...not to have it in the first place.
If you have some anatomical knowledge beforehand, that would enhance your understanding. If you don't, it's ok - this book has great gems that will make it worth for anyone seeking to broaden their understanding of the body and it's functional patterns.
