The organization of this book is wonderful. I read Mean's Health magazine and was used to the following their workout instructions. Men's Health magazine typically has the instruction next to the action. So rather that reading bullet points of what you have to do, you look at the picture and next to each shot is a sentence describing the action. I find it more helpful. All the exercise for each muscle group are broken down and after each chapter there is a section on the ultimate workout for tha ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone serious about strength training
For a couple months now, I've felt like I'm in a rut with my weight lifting routine. Injuring my foot a couple weeks ago forced me to look for new ways to work out, and kind of hit the reset button on something that had become a little too routine for me. I thought, if I just had a big book of every exercise for every body part, I could make so many different workouts that I would never get bored and at the same time would be more effective than doing the same leg workout every Friday or whateve ...more

This book is very well organized into exercises by muscle group and gives you a wide variety of exercises per group. It also includes lot of information on diet and nutrition as well as various workouts that give you prescribed number of sets and reps.

I know I'll always have a reference to go to in case I need some new exercises or workout ...more
An extensive exercises book that cover all area in human body and can substitute personal trainer.
This monster book hence the name (The big book) has about 500 pages divided into 15 chapters.
No exercise can not be found in this book.

Plus, great illustrations and great tips.

Is a must-to-have book for gymaholics and who has on-off relationship with the gym :D

Отличная книга, содержащая в себе практически все возможные упражнения, а также массу рекомендаций, как правильно заниматься в зависимости от желаемого результата. Также есть подготовленные планы тренировок, например "Get ready to beach workout", "Get back in shape workout". Всячески советую всем, кто занимается в тренажерных залах или у себя дома.
Organized really well, decent diet tips, really awesome exercises and lots of different workout programs for different people with different fitness goals. Now if I just stick with it a little more closely maybe I can look like the dude on the front...
Asa trainer, I sometimes get stuck on the same twenty-or-so exercises, and it's nice to have a book to remind me of all of the possibilities, to better train my clients.

This book has a ton of exercises. Your workouts never have to be the same. I recommend this book. I might even by it instead of just checking it out of the library.
Good reference book just for different exercises. It gives you lots of alternatives, such as what to do when the gym is too crowded or there are only free weights
John Alwood
Excellent resource for workouts, technique, and some decent nutritional instruction.
Some great workouts in here to keep you from plateauing!
