Product Description

About the Author

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. The former editor in chief of the French magazine PowerMag, Delavier is currently a journalist for the French magazine Le Monde du Muscle and a contributor to several other muscle publications, including Men's Health Germany. 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. Gundill started weightlifting in 1983 in order to improve his rowing performance. Most of his training years were spent completing specific lifting programs in his home. 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.

Format: Paperback
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

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.

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.

Its a good book, but not necessary, there's plenty of great information on the internet, and better, more efficient core exercises out there too! I couldn't resist buying it out of curiosity, but nothing new here, I'd defiantly save my money.

There is a mass of information in this book, identifying different workout and training regimes to improve core fitness. It includes individual exercises for specific muscle groups as well as programmes for sports specific training. As a personal trainer, this is very valuable for prescribing exercises for my clients, however it is also easy to follow for the layman looking to improve their core fitness.
It's not the first of mr Delavier's books I've bought and it won't be the last
Thoroughly recommended

Not a bad book very informative and well written brings about some interesting facts about the anatomy, which i feel when performing many exercises people should take into consideration and avoid injury.

Sorry I thought I had already written a review but apparently not. This book is ok, though I bought it at a discounted price. I like library research and at 60+ yrs plus the pictures are good enough to help me explain to my gym instructions what I hope to be talking about. So this book ok

I am now stronger, faster and fitter, my knowledge is increased. The book is easy to understand and explains the excercises very well as well as highlighting correct techniques and possibility of injuries. Best of all the book also advises of excercise to avoid.
