"Very Good, But..."
"Reviewing this book is somewhat difficult. It contains lots of useful information. The sections about programs and when, how much and how to train are very good.
However, I was left wondering what was specific to training past 50? There are a couple of mentions of how strength declines after 50, without some compensation through training. There is also a brief mention about the need for more protein for ageing strength trainers. But, this content is very limited and there is no mention at all of how or why strength training should be different for those past 50.
So, while the content is good, it seemed to me it could probably be obtained from any other good strength training manual that might even provide a wider range of exercises.
Thus I rate it only a 3 because, while there is nothing specifically wrong with the content, I felt it had nothing extra really to offer those over 50." by a Book Depository customer
