I cannot say anything original that has not already been said by other reviewers here, but there is a reason this book is in #1 spot for weight lifting and training theory. I was given the heads up on this book by reading Michael Matthew's "Bigger, Leaner, Stronger" (which I've reviewed seperately and consider to be an extermely poor resource on the same subject), and have loved every page. It is set out superbly, with colour coding and excellent drawings, and is the NUMBER ONE resource for correcting positioning, technique, posture and method whilst emphasising injury limitation.

The book really comes into it's own where you might be seeking alternatives to certain movements, and as the book is divided into body part sections you can always choose a new exercise from its pages and understand whether it will help you target your chosen body part effectively. I have, since paying attention to Delavier's clear writing and superb cross-section illustrations, corrected my form on a great number of movements which is all the more important as I train at home in my purpose-built gym, and therefore cannot benefit from expensive PTs at the local gym.

It gets even better when you purchase this fundamental exercise guide together with Delavier's separate Strength Training Anatomy Workout #1, which for me is the defining text on home gym workouts using nothing more complex than dumbbells, barbells, body weight and resistance bands together with chairs and your bed.

Do not delay and add these two Delavier books to your collection today - you will NOT regret it.

Really helped me understand what muscle groups are used on each workout and also helped me with the correct way of doing each exercise.

I actually didn't read this fully when I first bought it but it has been an invaluable resource as I've progressed with training and tried to broaden my knowledge in particular for barbell compound movements.

Perfectly illustrated book, shoving all muscle groups engaged in the particular exercise, this way making it easier for you to make that magical mind to muscle connection and get those gains. 10/10 for information, contains bad forms and common mistakes.

Everyone who ever starts any weight training should buy this. Not a book so much as a guide to safe training.
