Very nice book; printed out in a high quality paper; with charts and graphics that depict the human muscles in great detail. I liked the explanations about how the dynamics of the muscle-training works and some explanations about how to manage the breath. The exercises per-se didn't provide any new knowledge from what I already knew; although the text-book approach was interesting and helpful.

Another beautiful book by Human Kinetics Press. This book is definitely for beginners, and there's a lot of useful information in here that will make the weight room much less intimidating to the first-time user. I particularly appreciate the steps to determining the appropriate weight, which can be difficult for somebody who has never lifted before. Also included are things like the correct grip, posture and movement.
