With expert analysis of technique for more than 100 resistance training exercises, Effective Strength Training is just the guide you need to ensure these exercises are performed correctly and with minimal risk. Drawing on the latest scientific principles and theories related to resistance training, Effective Strength Training provides the "how" and the "why" behind the proper performance of popular upper-body, lower-body, and trunk exercises. By understanding the purpose and correct form for each exercise, you can gain the full benefit each exercise provides and avoid injury. Whether you teach strength training or do it yourself, you'll find new and helpful information that you can put to use. Douglas Brooks, one of the top personal trainers in the United States, questions the safety of controversial exercises such as the upright row, dipping movements, cable exercises, and machine chest presses. After putting these exercises to the test of objective scientific evaluation, he then recommends valuable guidelines for safe use. Effective Strength Training also addresses high-risk situations where exercises fall short of safe biomechanical standards. If you're dealing with orthopedic limitations--such as knee or back problems--or challenging training goals, these solutions will help you make prudent, corrective modifications. Practical and to the point, this book also presents the latest information related to resistance training program design and defines and discusses topics such as training systems, periodization principles, and a continuum of training programs. Effective Strength Training is full of no-nonsense strategies and expert advice that will simplify the design and teaching of programs to meet the best interests of your clients or students. And, if you're a strength trainer yourself--especially if you're seeking certification by the International Weightlifting Association--this resource will help you successfully reach all your training goals.

Strength training has been proven to have a beneficial effect on our body image and health, so it's not surprising that the number of people participating in this activity has been rising steadily over the last 20 years (in the US, for example, 21% of all adults now train with weights at least twice a week, with women making up one in five of those training). Strength Training is the ultimate personal trainer for every reader. It provides exercises for all parts of the body, taking you step-by-step through each movement and highlighting exactly which muscle should be working when. You are shown the perfect stance to adopt, and how to perform the movement with optimum technique. Exercises are also accompanied by helpful features such as common pitfalls to watch out for; variations to do at home or in the gym, and on fixed machines or using free weights; and adaptations you can try to tailor an exercise more closely to your particular needs. Specially commissioned programs provide easy-to-follow instruction for a variety of objectives, and each program has three different levels - beginner, intermediate, and advanced - to help you maximize its usefulness. Tailor-made programs for men and women, younger and older, ensure that the book works on many levels. One key sector to embrace strength training in recent years has been the 50+ age group, for whom the risk of injury is also relatively high. This book, with it's emphasis on clear demonstration of optimum technique, detailed outlines of the muscles used, and advice on avoiding common pitfalls, provides the maximum safeguard against the danger of injury, and helps you stay at peak fitness.
