Overview

The companion videotape to Weight Training: Steps to Success shows viewers everything they need to know to start a well-balanced weight training program. Step by step, the video demonstrates how to perform the same 19 exercises that are covered in the book. The video makes learning easy by using slow motion, freeze-frames, and graphics to show viewers the proper positioning and lifting technique for each exercise. It also gives tips on choosing the right equipment and presents exercise programs for three different types of equipment—free weights, single- or multistation pivot machines, and cam machines. While the Weight Training Video is designed for students who are just starting out, it's also great for those who have lifted weights before but have never had formal instruction in weight training. It's full of informative demonstrations that give students a sound base of weight training knowledge and allow them to visualize the methods described in the book.

By incorporating unique progressions of skills (steps to success), Weight Training gives readers the information they need to safely participate in an activity that will improve fitness, body appearance, and everyday task efficiency. 170 illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Baechle and Groves, experienced coaches and trainers, present a step-by-step, well-organized manual directed at beginners as well as advanced students of weight training. Sixteen chapters cover basic exercises for the upper and lower body, using free weights and machines. The emphasis is on proper technique and performance in a controlled manner through analyzing movements, detailing safety precautions, and identifying common errors. The exercises are presented in workbook style, with practice drills and checklists. Weight Training is better for novices than such recent titles as Robert Kennedy's Bodybuilding Basics (Sterling Pub. Co., 1991) and offers a more scientific approach. If the illustrations (not seen) are as systematic and thoughtful as the text, this book would make a solid addition to public and academic library sports collections.-- Sandra Math, St. John's Univ. Lib., Staten Island, N.Y.
