Weight Training for Dummies
by Liz Neporent and Suzanne Schlosberg
2000

If you've never lifted a dumbbell in your life but you realize that weight lifting is one of the best things you can do for your health, then this book is for you. If you already know your way around a gym and have been working out for at least a few months, much of the information found here will be remedial. If you are interested in lifting or bodybuilding as a sport in itself, then look elsewhere. Now that we've got that straight, we can proceed.

Back to the first group of people - the ones who want to weight train for their health. You are probably a little intimidated by those who already seem comfortable using gym equipment - let's not even get into the muscle-bound body builders in the corner where the 120-pound dumbbells are! But you really have nothing to fear. This book tells you everything you need to know to get started. You'll find information about equipment, from free weights to machines; safety precautions; tips on choosing videos, personal trainers and home gym equipment; lots and lots of exercises and ways to put together a routine. You'll even find information about Yoga and Pilates, a bit about supplements, and a load of myth-busting facts. The authors tell all in an easy, friendly style that will have you wondering what you were so scared of to begin with.

Before you buy a dumbbell or a gym membership, get this book. It will guarantee that your choices will be well informed. Weight Training for Dummies won't teach you how to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but then you probably don't want to look like that, either. It will give you the tools to make weight training a part of your life, no matter you age and fitness level. This "Dummies" book is definitely a smart buy.
