Basics and fundamentals are addressed for the novice including such things as where to work out, the importance of rest, what to wear and some basic terminology (there is a glossary included). The types of equipment used are free weights and Nautilus equipment and pullyes. The book details the emphasis of the exercises, the starting positions, the desired movements and gives training tips. Overtraining, sticking points, injuries and individualizing routines are also covered.
Intermediate bodybuilders will benefit with the addition of more standard exercises, and for the advanced bodybuilder the four day split is introduced.
Regarding competition, the pages treat us to photos of Rachel McLish, the first woman to win the U.S. Women's Bodybuilding Championship in 1980 and the title Ms. Olympia. Preparing with diet and exercise, posing and grooming, and off season are all addressed.
Finally some common questions about bodybuilding are answered. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about women's bodybuilding, however for the advanced bodybuilder it lacks in the area of additional exercises and cross training. I found myself reading The Weider System of BodyBuilding by Joe Weider with Bill Reynolds for more in depth information. The Weider System of Bodybuilding
