Overview

Weight training increases strength and stamina, improves balance and co-ordination and, by turning fat to muscle, will give you a leaner, healthier, sexier body. There are several proven health benefits for women, too, including a decreased risk of osteoporosis, heart disease and arthritis. In this book you will discover that weight training is easy - in fact all it takes is two or three 20-minute sessions per week!

Organized into body sections - upper, mid, and lower body - a comprehensive set of exercises cover all the major muscle groups. At-a-glance workouts tailor sets of these exercises to different needs, whether you want to improve definition in your back, sculpt the perfect beach body or are looking for a gentle workout suited to the more mature woman. Also included are vital warm-up and cool-down stretches, which help prevent injury and increase flexibility.

In my quest to tone my body, I bought weights, but had no clue how to use them outside of biceps curls. Then I found this book! I am so glad that I now have a professional to show me how to exercise with weights. These exercises can be done at home with a minimum of equipment (weights, mat, balance ball and towel) and there are exercises for the entire body! This is a book designed for women who don't have a lot of time to exercise, but want to get toned. The reasonable price of this book was an added bonus.
