Highly recommend this book for weight training.

This book has been very helpful to me while setting up a weight training plan. There are lots of illustrations and vital information on the basic movements, and in addition, gives you variations on those basic movements. includes multiple training plans at the end. This was exactly the book I was looking for. I wish I would’ve found it sooner.

“The Book” that every science based trainee should have.
3 words: explanatory, entertaining, worth it!
Super informative
If you’re into fitness, whether you’re a gym rat or even a fitness trainer, you will love this book!! Great information and detailed with colored illustration so that you make the connection to what is described. Even my Kinesiology book wasn’t as well written as this book!
