One of the best books ever on strength training,

This review is from: Body by You: The You Are Your Own Gym Guide to Total Women's Fitness (Paperback)
This book makes sense. Mark Lauren believes that if you train fo about half an hour three times a week you can have a fantastic body. And he shows you very precisely how to go about it. The programme requires some studying to fully understand the instructions but it's all there. The photos are clear and helpful, too, showing unlikely looking bits of furniture being pressed into "home gym" duty. I question only the use of a door as a chinning bar - not sure the ones in my house re up to it, but I know what sort of structure I am seeking. The companion volume "You are Your Own Gym" is a useful extra if you want to ring the changes with some of the exercises. On the basis of a few weeks' application, Lauren's method works. Highly recommended.
