A pocket sized weight training manual that I would consider the holy grail for bodybuilding beginners, and, that if followed to the letter, will most likely catapult the serious student to the head of his class. It gives the all important parameters]learning to sense what is not enough as well as what is too much. There is a valuable chapter devoted entirely to nutrition and food supplementation. And, of course, dozens of effective routines laid out for the entire spectrum of experience, from beginner to advanced. The author gives instruction for those that train at home or in a commercial gym, how to avoid overtraining like the plague, warming up as well as cooling down, muscle soreness and injuries, the best exercises for each body-part, etc. I give it a five star rating for anyone who wants to avoid the common pitfalls in their early stages of bodybuilding.
