Gr. 7-12. Exercise physiologist Roberts and International Federation of Bodybuilders founder Weider share their expertise in a basic manual on developing strength that encourages young people to participate in some regular form of strength training. The authors analyze the safety and effectiveness of strength and weight training, introduce a variety of strength and resistance training methods besides weight lifting, and clearly outline how to develop strength safely. With specific exercises and information on training fundamentals, nutrition, ergogenic aids, and sports-specific training, this handy guide will be as valuable to coaches, parents, and physical educators as it will be to young athletes. The inclusion of a resource list and a bibliography help make it even more useful. A highly recommended purchase. Mary Romano MarksReview:
