This book shows how to achieve and keep a healthy body with weights. Weight training has become a highly popular way to get in shape and maintain good health, as well as increase bone mass and potentially decrease long-term fracture risk. Using a step-by-step process, this practical, fun guide gets readers started with a weight training routine and helps them customise it to meet their needs. Featured are full-colour photographs of exercises for every major muscle group, along with clear instructions and useful tips to enhance the readers' weight training experience. In addition to covering all the necessary basics, the book also provides supplemental information about nutrition and setting up a home gym, as well as more advanced weight training techniques.
