I recently purchased this book having previously purchased 'strength training anatomy' by the same author. I feared that this book might simply repeat much of the content of the other book, but that is not the case. I think that this book can be regarded as complementing 'strength training anatomy'. This book is more focused on workout routines. It include descriptions of a greater number of exercises, which are mainly illustrated by photographs, although it does include some drawings. The book also suggests work out programmes for different sports and levels of experience. The book tends to focus on exercising at home, but much of the content is equally applicable to the gym.

Overall,I found it a worthwhile purchase.

I bought two books from Frederic Delavier. This one and Strength training anatomy. If you plan on working out exclusively at home with dumbbells, Strength Training Anatomy Workout is the only book you may need. It has a nice introduction, explaining some of the things to consider prior to working out with weights. The benefits of working out at home, the use of rubber bands for some specific exercises, the goal setting, some motivational words, etc.
Then the book is structured by major muscle groups. It shows many exercises for each group, offering alternatives and variations, to suit every need or physical condition. The pictures are really helpful and there is usually a drawing of the muscles involved in each exercise. These detailed drawing are mostly taken from Strength training anatomy.
It also includes stretching instruction and specific tips to avoid possible injuries for each type of exercise.
At the end it lays out several working-out programs according to different goals and/or different sports.

All in all it is a very good book, specially useful for those with even very limited equipment or not willing to spend time and money going to a gym. It offers many exercises to set up a program according to your needs or take the ones laid out for you at the end of the book.

Although there's an emphasis on home training, the programs and excercises can easily be adapted to use a full range of gym facilities. The book describes different techniques to increase intensity which I found particularly useful. Don't expect any information on diet I recommend Power Eating by Dr. Susan Kleiner.

I'm current using the one of the programs and am seeing results. For completeness I recommend Strength Training Anatomy as an accomplyment to this book.

This book is aimed at people who want to improve muscle size, strength and/or stamina, with a particularly strong focus on increasing muscle size.

The first part details the mechanics of muscle development in clear terms, broken into compact, headed sections which are aided by diagrams and photos. The information is all of interest and it nicely explains why weight training sessions follow a particular structure.

The second part then acts as an encyclopaedia of strength training exercises for the arms, shoulders, chest, back, neck, thighs and calves. Each exercise is illustrated with anatomical drawings and photographs to make clear the correct form of the exercise. Advice and warnings are given to help you to improve effectiveness and reduce risk, and in most cases each exercise offers variations to target different goals. The descriptions and photos make it easy to be confident that you're performing the exercise correctly, and the warnings make you aware of how to avoid injury.

The third part provides numerous weight training programmes, the first few intended for increasing muscle size across the body, the latter intended for athletes and sportsmen who want to improve muscle strength to gain better performance and ward off injuries. These programmes allow you to get started quickly without having to design your own routine, and the large number of exercises listed in the previous part of the book make it easy to select new exercises once you're making good progress and want to pursue particular goals.

Whether you seek to improve your muscle strength, size or stamina, or just have a curiosity about muscle development, this book is an excellent reference.

It gives a detailed description of what part of the body and what muscles are used with each exercise
I learn a lot from reading this, it gives you example workout plans from training for sports, bodybuilding to general fitness
It has a list of intensity training techniques that I wouldn't have thought of (I'm not exactly new to the gym)
Overall I found this very useful

This book is ideal for the fitness fanatic who wants to tone up and work out both at the gym and at home. The graphic pictures show the exact muscles that are worked on and the author guides you through the health and safety of lifting weights and levers. A really good purchase and I would thoroughly recommend it.

I've read a number of books on strength training, and gained someuseful tips. This book was different in that the information is presented in a very balanced way. The pros and cons of every training variable and exercise are discussed. Instead of taking a dogmatic standpoint, the discussions leave the reader to consider and select their own training approach. The book is very nicely laid out, with lots of photos and illustrations. It is also well structured, making the info easier to refer to.
