With new exercises, additional stretches, and more of Frédéric Delavier’s signature illustrations, you’ll gain a whole
new understanding of how muscles perform during strength exercises. This one-of-a-kind best-seller combines the visual
detail of top anatomy texts with the best of strength training advice.
Many books explain what muscles are used during exercise, but no other resource brings the anatomy to life like
Strength Training Anatomy. Over 600 full-color 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 anatomical depictions show both superficial and deep layers and detail how
various setup positions affect muscle recruitment and emphasize underlying structures. New pages show common strength
training injuries in a fascinating light and offer precautions to help you exercise safely.
