==Lots of Strengths== 1 juin 2011
Par trainermom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With over 450,000 copies sold, this book is arguably the best book of its kind. What's it useful for? Mainly to help the reader (from the weekend athlete to the athletic trainer to the professional bodybuilder) figure out what exercises work what muscles.

It's neatly divided up into sections (arms, shoulders, chest, back, etc.), so all you really have to do is flip to one of these sections and it will have detailed pictures of various exercises and exactly which muscles are involved.

A great reference to keep have around, I give it five stars easy. Readers who lift weights regularly might also be interested in Bulletproof Your Shoulder to avoid shoulder problems a lot of lifters eventually get.

Excellent strength training resource from a company with top-notch customer service 24 mars 2010
Par Hedley Lamarr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought the 2nd edition of this book well over a year ago when I was on a working out kick. Unfortunately life got in the way and I stopped going to the gym for several months, and even when I started back I only dabbled with cardio workouts. About 4 months ago I started back on weights and dug out this book. Prior to that I hadn't opened it. The book as it turns out had serious printing issues, making much of it unusable. It was long past the time frame in which I could have returned it to Amazon so I contacted the publisher, Human Kinetics, instead. Their customer service was excellent! They were aware of a small number of mis-prints that fit my description and were more than happy to replace it. The CS person asked if it would be ok if the replacement was delayed a few weeks until the 3rd edition was available which greatly pleased me. I received the new book about a week ago and it was in perfect condition. Many thanks to the HK folks for their fine customer service!

For those that don't already know what's in this book let me explain in detail. Everyone has seen the anatomy posters on the gym walls. The individual caricatures on the posters display a cut-away model of the human body sans skin. It highlights a muscle or group of muscles and then shows you an exercise that you can use to work that specific muscle. There usually isn't much more detail than that. Text is minimal. This book is at it basics a book version of those posters. However this book goes much, much further. The caricatures for individual muscles and muscle groups in this book usually have multiple exercise options. Text in this book explains in detail how to properly perform the exercise. It also provides useful tips on how to slightly alter the exercise to accommodate common injuries (ie, turn your wrists this way to not engage a torn wrist flexor). There are several pages of guides and background information on how to avoid certain injuries such as not fully extending your arms when doing curls to avoid tendinitis down the road. As another example the book goes into detail on how and why crunches should ALWAYS be performed with an inward curving spine (ie, fetal curve). This is to minimize the usage of the Psoas Major & Minor hip flexors and avoid the back injury they can cause. There are several excellent section of pure information in this book. The caricatures in this book are truly excellent. The artist did a fantastic job positioning and drawing the body to emphasize exactly what the reader needs to see and understand. The 3rd Edition also adds text on proper stretching among other things.

I highly recommend this book to every single person lifting weights at all levels. I've shown the book to friends, coworkers and people at the gym. I've even sung its praises to complete strangers in checkout lines and restaurants. I can't say enough good things about it. The only negative thing I can think of (more of a wishful thinking thing) is that it's only available in paperback. I wish it was also available as a hardback. Taking this to the gym with you will wear it out eventually. Of course for its low price replacing it is inexpensive. It's an excellent resource.

Very comprehensive overview of anatomy for strength trainers 2 mai 2010
Par Garnet70 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
So much has been said about the strengths of this fantastic book so I will point out what it doesn't contain or could do better. First, this is not a book that you can use to directly create a workout plan. For each body part featured, there are descriptions of the muscle in the group and how they work together, the major variations between body types and how that affects one's ability to do certain exercises, and brief coverage on injury prevention and recovery. There are several exercises described and illustrated for each muscle group.

The reader does not come away with a plan to do certain exercises in a certain order, on certain days or in combination with certain other body parts. Thus a novice will not be told (for example) to start his chest workout with dumbbell presses and then move to barbell and machines as the chest muscles are exhausted. Nor will you be instructed to exercise triceps after chest so that the triceps muscles are not depleted prior to doing chest. Finally, this is not a book that discusses diet, sleep, nutrition or supplements, all of which are critical factors to achieving your strength training goals.

This book is an outstanding linkage between human anatomy and exercise physiology. It describes what mechanical difference and muscular impact of doing different exercises (say, squats vs. leg presses) so that the reader can understand how a given exercise works the muscles. It is up to the reader to infer based on this understanding how an exercise routine should be constructed or how to overcome or compensate for limitations in the reader's existing training regiment or personal physical characteristics.

As for what could be better, with each exercise, there is a color legend to explain which muscle groups are engaged. This should be abandoned for until you memorize the 20 or so colors (assuming you can distinguish between them) you have to keep paging back to the legend to just ignore them. It would be far better to simply list the muscle groups as text. I would also like to see larger versions of the small diagrams that show the corresponding muscle groups shaded in red and orange. However, these are small gripes and the ineffectiveness of some of these graphics are overcome when by the detailed text and large labeled muscle charts.

New 3rd edition - with red cover - is even bigger and better! 26 mars 2010
Par W. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Frederic Delavier's stunning Strength Training Anatomy (Sports Anatomy Series) is an essential resource for any strength training enthusiast. While others have tried to mimic Delavier's incredible illustrations of muscle performance during strength training, no one comes close to capturing Delavier's level of detail and style. The pretenders either deliver sterile computer models or come off as second rate approximations of Delavier's unparalleled artwork.

One look and you'll be sold. The cover touts selling over a million copies of Strength Training Anatomy and its been the best selling strength training title at Amazon year-in and year-out.

This newly released 3rd Edition packs even more information on strength training, sport injury and prevention, and now adds material on stretching/flexibility for the first time. At 192 pages, this edition is 50% longer than the original 2001 publication. It now contains over 600 full-color illustrations.

Believe the hype - this is a FANTASTIC resource! Highly recommended!

Does 3rd Ed Correct the GLARING OMISSIONS in 2nd Ed? 5 avril 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have the 2nd Edition of this book, and despite its beautiful appearance, I must describe it as a book "FOR DAY ONE BEGINNERS ONLY" (even though it is brilliantly disguised as sports medicine).

The RIDICULOUS OMISSIONS of the 2nd Edition are two-fold:

1. The book does not distinguish between muscle heads used, e.g. long head and medial head of the triceps, etc. It merely says/shows that Tricep Extensions work your triceps. Oh, as in "thanks", I wouldn't have guessed. Anyone but a Day One beginner knows that already. This book does not distinguish between how various tricep exercises work the different heads of the triceps slightly differently. It just says they all work triceps. What then is the point of this book, other than its fancier than average (but no more informative) pictures? (Ditto for all muscles, not just triceps. That just happened to be the one I was looking up today.)

2. This book shows very poorly, if at all, all the supporting muscles used in any given exercise. For example, Cable Tricep Pushdowns also work your chest, lats, and abs to some extent. (If you don't believe me, then come touch my abs while I do this exercise, you will find they are rock-hard.) In fact, most standing cable exercises also work your feet, ankle, hip, and midsection muscles, and more, in addition to whatever upper body exercise you were actually doing. This book does not show the use of these supporting muscles at all. It does show numerous muscles that "happen to be in the neighborhood" (in non-bold font), but does not distinguish which are used or not, and misses many, many other essential supporting muscle (e.g., without your using ankle muscles, any standing cable exercise would just pull you right across or off the floor). Even worse, the book shows irrelevant muscles, e.g. biceps on a triceps exercise, which are not used at all, yet omits abs, which are used moderately heavily.

The line in the Product Description for this 3rd Edition "full-color illustrations reveal the primary muscles worked" DOES NOT give me confidence that these essential secondary muscles are included in this new edition.

(Without this new info, it's just a baby book, disguised as an advanced medical book.)
