This is a great reference book for targeting those areas that you want to work on and keep working on. It involves your core, upper and lower body, and building strength. It includes workout programs to take the stress off and get you started. I really enjoyed that each step is laid out really well and I could read and follow along with everything that was said. So pick up the book, gather your equipment, read up on the nutrition part, and get started on a stronger you. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
