A must have for all woman.
I use to believe cardio alone could get the job done. My fitness goal was to stay lean. After 35 I started to loose muscle tone. My arms were thin but not shapely like in my 20's. I use to work at a gym some years back so I am fairly aware what needs to be done to improve my tone. So as I am shopping for a Bowflex, I stopped at the bookstore and stumbled on this book. Reluctantly I thumbed thru it and discovered I need this book LOL. All the exercises are simple, and it explains what areas will improve in the event you are unaware. For those who were not raised in an active household, or in a gym enviroment, it is the best book out there to simplify your exercise program. No personal trainers needed. No gym memberships. Just a couple cheap dumbbells and your off. And it works.....My arms and core section have never looked better (even in my 20's). Just simply added 30 minutes three days a week and waalaa.

Very poor sample
It would be nice if the sample of the book(14 pages) would actually get into the book. All I got was the table of contents and nothing more. It doesn't even get to chapter 1! Can't buy it if I can even read one paragraph. I would give this ZERO stats if it would let me.

I Also Recommend:
Great for anyone who works with dumbbells, especially beginners!
I found this book to be very helpful with its photo of each exercise and grouping of exercises to cater to specific muscle groups. The author is clearly very knowledgable, and writes in a way that breaks it down in simple, easy to understand terms for the beginner. Experienced weight trainers will get the challenge they need if they start at the end plans.
There is not a great amount of nutrition planning in the book, which should always go hand and hand with any weightlifting for the highest gains. That's not a problem for those experienced ones, but beginners should be wary and pick up a good clean eating to book (Tosca Reno is awesome!) to put it all together.
