Just about everything you ever wanted to know about dumbbells. The book is divided up into three parts. The first part, the truth about dumbbells, explains all about the different types of dumbbells. The second part, the master moves, shows you the exercises you can do with a dumbbell which includes many pictures and instructions. This part makes up about 80% of the book. And finally, part three, a million moves for your muscles, essentially provides the reader with tips and suggested routines.

A great resource if you're into dumbbells, readers who lift regularly might also be interested in Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff to prevent rotator cuff tears a lot of lifters eventually get.

This book has been a great asset to me. I have absolutely no workout experience, but i have been making lots of progress using this book everyday. I don't have to kill myself to feel stronger, and my body is changing, like never before. I'm looking forward to the coming changes in my body.

Just the right amount of detail without going overboard. Great for beginners while still useful for more advanced users.
