Product Description

Review

I can't tell you how many books I have looked at for weight training with weights, just to open them up and they are all gym related exercises on gym equipment at the gym. I guess its good if you have a gym membership, but the point of me looking for a book using handweights was because that was all I had at home, just hand weights. This book delivers. In a few moves, she uses a weight bench for positioning, but you can also use a chair or your coffee table or a step. She also has a section for using a stability ball. I don't have one but I plan on buying one. This is a great book for people who only have hand weights and nothing else. The pictures show the moves well. Over all, good book for those of us with limited equipment but still want a good workout. Lovestoread - like that it offers suggestions for exercises for different body types - endomorph, ectomorph and mesomorph - that's really helpful. The exercises are described very well, photographs are great and it's easy to follow. Only suggestion would have been spiral binding. -Dorey E Evans-This book gives samples of exercises you can do without having to go to a gym. You will need a bench for some of the exercises which can be picked up at an inexpensive price. It is well written and informative especially for beginers. It targets every body part. For people that like to go to the gym many of the exercises can be incorporated into a standard routine to give your muscles a change of pace. Changing your routine should be done periodically anyway. It is a great back to basics book. Will work for beginers as well as the advanced -Erika Muller-There was far more information in this book than just weights. The author really has put a lot of effort into creating a rounded book filled with relevant information. I'm very happy with this.-RTWallace-I decided to purchase dumbbells instead of renewing my gym membership, so I was looking for fresh ideas for home workouts. This book has a lot of compound exercises that are great at breaking up the monotony of the usual sets. The challenge of learning new techniques brings such a breath of fresh air. I intend to buy her book of stability ball exercises as well since I've found this book so valuable.-Curls --Curls

I LOVE this book! It gives so many different workout options. I have never seen so many good ideas incorporated into one exercise book. It even gives recipe ideas for healthy eating. The illustrations are very helpful and it is very easy to interpret how to do each exercise correctly. I'm just a beginner but this is the right tool for advancing. --mommyof2

This book is really great. There are a ton of exercises broken down by body part that can perform in the privacy of your own home with very minimal equipment. It is clear, concise, informative and very well illustrated. I definitely recommend it. -K Holloway - liked this book. Never would believe this fitness pro was ever 40 pounds overweight, she looks perfect. Nice photos of proper form. Moves I never would have considered. A good sturdy bench is also a good addition to utilize this book's moves. Gave that persoanl trainer type instruction on form that I needed. --SexySmartGal --Wow! I have been working out with dumbells off and on for 25 years. In the past, I relied on Joyce Vedral. Now I find myself with 75 pounds of extra weight from 4 pregnancies and over indulging, so I am back to weights and cardio. It has been a very difficult journey to find a new updated book that has strictly dumbell exercises. I just completed my second workout and I am so thrilled that I purchased this book (based on other reviews). The author has done a great job on creating a book that is easy to follow with good instructions and photos. The glossy pages are a must for workout books as well - thank you! The exercises are clearly numbered at the top corner so they are easy to find. She also gives several workout options for body parts as well as body types so that I can fit in any workout I want, follow it easily and get it done in a reasonable amount of time. As an OTR, I also appreciate the movements that not only required strength but balance, as this diminishes with age. I applaud the author and would highly recommend this book to anyone who exercises with dumbells and to all fitness levels.--BusyMom-- --BusyMom

I borrowed this book initially from my local library, and found Cindy Whitmarsh an inspirational. This book gives you not only exercises but a guide to a quick start low fat tasty diet ideas. I went on to purchase a copy for myself to refer to at home. Reading this book has not only helped me re-evaluate what and how I eat, but also how to successfully tone and sculpt my body. I have scoliosis (curvature of the spine) so I have to be careful regarding maintaining an acceptable weight level and strong core strength and muscle tone to support the spine, Cindy's book has successfully helped me do this.
If you are dedicated and focused in what you need to achieve this book is exactly what you need.

This book comes from a great Series of books "101" and contains some good ideas for use with weights. I use this book for ideas when doing Lesson Plans for my Pilates Classes when using Toning Balls / Small dumb bells. As like all of this range of books it has both photograph(s), written instructions, number of reps and gives you combination of exercises.
