Baechle and Earle present this guide to weight training for fitness in three parts, with expanded coverage of different training options in the third edition. The first section covers theory and preparations, beginning with the benefits of weight training, specificity for different kinds of goals, equipment, fitness assessment, and technique. Planning to begin a program is discussed, and the last chapter in this section, spanning nearly half the book, describes the form and movement of specific exercises. Part II then presents a variety of training programs focusing on different parts of the body, color-coded to indicate difficulty. Part III gives more detail on self-directed training, including how to design your own program, incorporating aerobic exercise for maximum benefit, and cross-training to improve sport performance. Appendices provide charts for recording progress and a list of sport-specific exercises. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
