Overview

Dumbbell Training for Strength and Fitness is not your conventional how-to book. With an emphasis on safety, this book thoroughly covers all aspects of proper strength training while simultaneously debunking certain myths and misconceptions. Photos and illustrations throughout accompany descriptions of how to perform nearly 50 exercises with dumbbells in a safe and effective manner. Unique to this type of book is the inclusion of more than three dozen dumbbell workouts that have been submitted by more than 20 strength and fitness professionals from across the country including Jeff Friday (Baltimore Ravens), Ken Mannie (Michigan State University) and strength coach Dr. Ken Leistner. In addition, this book takes an in-depth look at training that offers individuals, beginner to advanced, the opportunity to maximize their workouts in a safe, effective and efficient manner.

Editorial Reviews

Fitness Magazine
...the best part of this book is the exercise section, because there is probably at least one exercise per body section that you have not thought of or used in this variation. Each exercise entry describes the muscle group(s), suggested repetitions, technique and training tips, which also include contraindications and when to choose an alternative exercise. Even if you know all of the exercises, the routines are good for client progressions.
—Neil Wolkodoff, PH.D.
