Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erik H. Van Iterson, PhD, MS, MBio (University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology)
Description: This book excels in providing detailed and organized illustrations outlining the muscular and skeletal structures involved in specific weight-training movements. This is an update of the 2005 edition.
Purpose: It is a detailed, illustrated guide to the muscular and skeletal anatomy involved in basic strength training exercises. It sets out to outline the major and minor muscles and skeletal structures involved in each movement while also providing various exercises to target specific muscles.
Audience: Although intended for anyone interested in strength training exercise, it will be especially useful for health and fitness professionals, movement science students, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, and other allied health professionals teaching or applying the principles of resistance training.
Features: The author focuses on what he deems to be the seven most important anatomical structures of the human body and how they are involved in strength training. Detailed sections on each of these structures provide both illustrations and text to help readers understand resistance exercise and the muscles and skeletal structures involved with specific resistance training movements. The book excels in providing detailed and easy to understand illustrations that depict specific strength training exercises. The value of these illustrations cannot be overstated, as they are what make this book unique and valuable for a broad audience. However, a shortcoming of this book is the omission of notable references to ensure readers of the accuracy of the illustrations.
Assessment: This book is exceptional for its clear writing style and accurate, detailed, and easy to read illustrations for all health and fitness enthusiasts. It may be particularly useful for health and fitness practitioners interested in reviewing resistance training human anatomy as well as those new to the field. This edition adds complementary sections focusing on stretching and injury identification related to resistance training.
