Review: Delavier's Women's Strength Training Anatomy Workouts by Frédéric Delavier and Michael Gundill
Review: I reviewed Delavier's Mixed Martial Arts Anatomy book a few years ago. So when I saw this one up for review, I eagerly applied to review it. It did not disappoint! If possible, this was even better. Once again, I was impressed with the clear, precise instructions, the clean text, the sturdy construction of the book, and the easy-to-understand organization and layout. Delavier's ability to gather and compress a large quantity of information into an understandable format is impressive. Again, as a novice, I found the instructions and examples free from jargon, easy to follow, and logical. The book is organized into three parts - instructions on how to develop your personal program, the exercises, and then suggested programs depending on your goals. The exercises take up the bulk of the book, each one detailed with drawings and precise instructions. Delavier adds multiple precautions and warnings about how to do these movements without injury and I appreciate that.
In the end, this is an excellent book that will assist any female looking to begin or improve her strength training exercises.
Note: I received this free as part of LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program, in exchange for my fair and honest opinion
