Frédéric Delavier is a gifted artist with an exceptional knowledge of human anatomy. He studied morphology and anatomy for five years at the prestigious École des Beaux Arts in Paris and studied dissection for three years at the Paris Faculté de Médecine.

He is the author of the best selling Strength Training Anatomy, Women s Strength Training Anatomy, The Strength Training Anatomy Workout, and Delavier's Stretching Anatomy. Delavier won the French powerlifting title in 1988 and makes annual presentations on the sport applications of biomechanics at conferences in Switzerland. His teaching efforts have earned him the Grand Prix de Techniques et de Pédagogie Sportive. Delavier lives in Paris, France. Michael Gundill has written 13 books on strength training, sport nutrition, and health including co authoring The Strength Training Anatomy Workout. His books have been translated into multiple languages, and he has written over 500 articles for bodybuilding and fitness magazines worldwide, including Iron Man and Dirty Dieting. In 1998 he won the Article of the Year Award at the Fourth Academy of Bodybuilding Fitness & Sports Awards in California.

As he gained muscle and refined his program, he began to learn more about physiology, anatomy, and biomechanics and started studying those subjects in medical journals. Since 1995 he has been writing about his discoveries in various bodybuilding and fitness magazines all over the world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Six Pack Ab workout?? 17 Feb 2012
As a huge fan of Delavier's previous books I ordered the Core Training Anatomy

I was hugely disappointed.

This is a book focussed on getting a six pack, not developing overall core muscle strength

There are very few exercises using a Swiss ball and very little information about how medicine balls can be incorporated into a core workout.
The static core strength exercises such as the plank are basic and do not show enough progressions and variations to challenge intermediate workouts
There is also very litle information about using cables for resisted core workouts.

Yes the illustrations are beautifully done, and the exercises in the book are well demonstrated with photos.

I'm sure there are better books out there

5.0 out of 5 stars Core Training Anatomy 20 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for fitness fanatics who want to achieve a perfectly sculptured and toned body. This shows each muscle and how they all work in conjunction with the weights and levers used at the gym. The graphic pictures are drawn using the bare muscle structure so you can see the muscles as they develop. I would really recommend this for people who are really enthused about achieving the perfect body.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing compared to Strength Training Anatomy 26 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having seen Strength Training Anatomy decided to pick this up, was very disappointed. Part of what makes STA so good are the amazing hand drawn diagrams. A good few of the pictures in this book are from STA, but most of the demonstrations are now photographs. While not bad, I was more interested in seeing how the muscles work then how to do the exercise. The author has removed what made STA unique, this Abs but is no different then may others you'll find.

Also Abs is all about diet and nutrition, i.e. a low body fat %, no other way to get a six pack.
