I adore this book. I take it to the gym with me three times a week and prop it open to do the routines. For a novice gym user like myself, the descriptions and awesome pics for each exercise are a must. I also like how the exercises are split up into different body parts (ex: arms, legs, back, abs, etc.) so if there's something in particular I want to focus on the info is all there.

Recommends it for: Women interested in weight lifting
I bought the last book put out by Hers and loved it. It helped me to develop a workout plan when I first started lifting weights. I bought this book because I needed something to motivate me in the gym. It did just that and has given me some new and different exercises.
I liked this book but in someways it feels beyond me and home use. Much of it is with equipment that I don't have and would need a gym for. But it does have a lot that I will be able to use and the pictures are very clear. It is a good companion to my other book Women's Strength Training Anatomy, which I liked VERY much.
This book is a collection of glossy, full-color articles from past issues of the magazine. Overall, like the magazines themselves, I find that the workouts are largely recycled versions of each other. That said, it's a better value than the magazines and is a nice compendium of workouts broken down by body part. The book would be improved if it was spiral bound - you need to crack the spine (OUCH!) to keep a workout open.
I love this book and it is one I will own forever. I use this book several times a week to put together new workouts and it has taught me several new exercises for certain muscle groups that I enjoy because they get me out of the routine of doing the same thing over and over again.
