This illustrated guide to weight training provides detailed information on developing safe and effective workouts for novice and intermediate weightlifters. Beginning with an explanation of equipment and safety, the work covers topics such as selecting exercises and training loads; specific routines for chest, arms, back, legs, and shoulders; core strength training regimes; workout program design; and maximizing results through varied training. Each exercise includes step-by-step instructions and color photographs, and notes on common pitfalls and proper techniques appear throughout. Baechle is a former weightlifter and a professor of exercise science at Creighton University, and Earle is director of higher education for Human Kinetics.
