Strength Training Anatomy

Author(s): Frederic Delavier


The number one reference for a wide audience, ranging from gym users to personal trainers, athletes to coaches, through to PE teachers, physiotherapists and academics. Over 400 unique full-colour illustrations reveal the primary muscles worked along with all the relevant surrounding structures, including bones, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue. Like having an x-ray for each exercise, the depth of anatomical information includes superficial and deep anatomical layers, and how different set-up positions affect muscle recruitment and the emphasis on underlying structures. The first edition of "Strength Training Anatomy" has been a phenomenal global success. Originally translated from French into 20 languages including German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Dutch.

2006. Second edition. A near fine copy only marked by a previous owners name sticker to the front page.
