The Strength Training Anatomy Workout II 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Beck_M More than 1 year ago
The Strength Training Anatomy Workout II is a detailed and interesting book geared towards those with advanced and intermediate weight lifting skills as the book assumes the reader is already very familiar with weight training strategies and exercises. This is a great reference for those who have reached a plateau in their workout and/or are interested in isolating and better developing weak areas. The book is arranged in three sections. Section one discusses current understandings of muscle development and why certain training changes may or may not affect one’s progress. Section two discusses each muscle group in turn. For each muscle group, the anatomy is described and illustrated, obstacles to muscle development are discussed and numerous exercises are described and illustrated. The last section lists a variety of training programs. I am a fan of Delavier’s books. I find they are easy to use and good references to have handy. The illustrations are terrific and the text gets right to the point.

Wow. I don't know what I was expecting when I requested this book. I had originally requested it thinking I was just going to hand it over to my boyfriend, let him work with it and then review it from his experiences. (I'm not a strength trainee by any means - I go the yoga route.) But this book is nothing short of awesome. Full colour pages, descriptive workouts (even loads of plans for beginners, all the way up to advanced workouts), photos everywhere and these AWESOME illustrations that show what each type of exercise technique is working on - displaying muscle tissue, bones, impact; honestly, this is a miniature, useful lesson in anatomy. Each workout appraises you of the advantages, disadvantages, risks and provides you with handy safety tips scattered throughout the book. Highly recommended for everyone who goes to the gym or has workout sessions at home. It really is an invaluable resource. (Tara O'Sullivan)
