Review quote

Exercise books abound -- filled with how-to photos of various exercises. But here's one with a bit of a different focus. Anatomy of Exercise looks at how different muscles of the body actually work during exercise. The book is organized by body area and shows common sequences in the progression of a typical workout. It features life-like anatomical illustrations to demonstrate each exercise and reveal exactly which muscles are engaged, which are being conditioned and how those muscles respond.--I Seiberling"Regina Post" (02/05/2009)
