From School Library Journal:

YA An excellent book for beginning weight lifters. Weider explains, through easily understood diagrams and accompanying text, how to do the exercises and the muscle groups that will be strengthened. The bulk of the book consists of weight training basics, followed by chapters devoted to specific sports (golf, basketball, soccer, swimming, etc.), indicating which and how often the general exercises should be used by the athlete. In addition to the weight exercise training program, Weider includes information on nutrition, aerobics, agility and flexibility. He even offers to answer personally any questions young atheletes might have. A good addition to sports sections, for use by both coaches and athletes.

From Publishers Weekly:

Weight training to enhance sports performance is so commonplace that this grab-all seems superfluous. Once more, big-name coaches and professional athletes testify to the value of weight training, and yet again one of the nation's flashiest muscle entrepreneurs extols the "findings" of the Weider Research Institute's anonymous scientists. But the basic techniques and programs provided here for participants in 11 sports may be beneficial to those with little knowledge of exercising with free weights and non-Nautilus machines. There's also a cursory nod to nutrition, aerobics, agility training and stretching. Women will find little of interest, howeverthe muscular figures in the drawings are mostly those of males, an emphasis repeated in the text.
