Weight training isn't just for muscleheads like Arnold Schwarzenegger any more. Now, health experts are telling us that lifting weights strengthens your bones, boosts your energy, and helps you lose fat. Weight Training For Dummies helps you design a program that's right for you with information you not only can trust but also understand. Health and fitness experts Liz Neporent and Suzanne Schlosberg talk you through whatever misconceptions you may have about weight training, and show you how to set goals and achieve them. They lay out basic principles of weight training for you, so that you can make sense of unfamiliar equipment at a gym or get the workout you want at home. Even if you already lift weights as part of your regular fitness routine, Weight Training For Dummies will inspire you to try new and different things with suggestions for improving your current exercises. Unlike other weight training books you may have seen, Weight Training For Dummies also offers tips specially tailored for kids, seniors, moms-to-be, and anyone who'd just like to lose some weight.

Review:

Any large bookstore has a few shelves of books about exercise and fitness. Usually they fall into one of two categories: basic books meant for people who've never exercised before, and bodybuilding manuals meant for people who do nothing but. Weight Training for Dummies is just about the only book that spans the knowledge gap between the two groups. It has plenty of easy-to-understand instruction for complete beginners, but there's also a lot of information for those who've been training a while. In fact, some veteran gym rats may be startled by the authors' extreme skepticism about nutritional supplements and some popular classes offered in many gyms.

From the Back Cover:

Would you like to add weight training to your fitness routine, but don't know where to start? Are you interested in toning and developing your muscles, but aren't sure which exercises work? Don't sweat it . . . roll up your sleeves and get ready to flex your muscles with Weight Training For Dummies:

This handy reference gives you the scoop on the most effective exercises for all your muscles -- with tips for how to get the best value for your money.

Inside, you'll discover how to:

  • Develop a personal weight training program based on your personal fitness goals
  • Test your current strength and track your improvements
  • Use proper techniques to lift weights safely and get great results
