About this title


For the estimated 26 million Americans lifting weights in 1987, here is the most complete book ever published on weight training. Features an easy-to-use format with one-page training programs that can be photocopied. Over 2,000 illustrations, 45 photos.

From School Library Journal:

YA Pearl offers a comprehensive introduction to weight training. He cautions readers on ways to avoid injury, but the supervision of a coach is still advisable in high-school weight rooms. Beginning with beginners, Pearl provides guidance on how to structure a fitness program and how to increase the level of fitness attained; he also offers discussion on choosing equipment, human musculature, nutrition, and steroids, as well as ``A Brief History of Resistance Exercise'' by Terry Todd. Exercise programs that are appropriate for general bodybuilding are outlined, as well as those for specific sports (aerobic dance, running, basketball, and triathlon), for fine tuning specific parts of the body, and for exercises with free weights and various name brand machines. The carefully drawn illustrations show men and women demonstrating the exercises; students can easily see how to proceed. Given the current enthusiasm for weight training by athletic departments and physical education programs, no high-school library can afford to pass this title by.Dorcas Hand, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
