    I just thought I would share an awesome book that I had to get for a Health and Nutrition class I am taking. It's called "Strength Training Anatomy" by Frederic Delavier.

    I really like it because it gives 20-30 exercises for each body part, and breaks them down using very detailed diagrams, what part of the muscle is being used, how to correctly do the exercise, and how to avoid injuries, etc.

    It was pretty inexpensive too, only $11 I think I paid on Amazon. This was a really good buy, and I have already learned new exercises to add to my routine that are helping a lot. So if anyone is looking for a good guide, check it out!

    Yes! Strength training is the basis for physical fitness, whether you do it to stay healthy or do it for appearances. Forget the fad exercises. Learn how to lift heavy things properly, and the rest will be easy.

    Another book to check out..

    It's definitely a great book. I bought my copy a few years ago and I still use it on a regular basis.
