This is a great book for anyone starting out with weights. The exercises range from Beginner to Advanced, with photos and descriptions. I really like the section with workout routines where you can target certain areas. :)
I borrowed this book initially from my local library, and found Cindy Whitmarsh an inspirational. This book gives you not only exercises but a guide to a quick start low fat tasty diet ideas. I went on to purchase a copy for myself to refer to at home. Reading this book has not only helped me re-evaluate what and how I eat, but also how to successfully tone and sculpt my body. I have scoliosis (curvature of the spine) so I have to be careful regarding maintaining an acceptable weight level and strong core strength and muscle tone to support the spine, Cindy's book has successfully helped me do this. If you are dedicated and focused in what you need to achieve this book is exactly what you need. :) x x x
This book comes from a great Series of books "101" and contains some good ideas for use with weights. I use this book for ideas when doing Lesson Plans for my Pilates Classes when using Toning Balls / Small dumb bells. As like all of this range of books it has both photograph(s), written instructions, number of reps and gives you combination of exercises.
