In this third book of The Now What? Fitness Series, certified personal fitness trainer Linda Burke delves into strength training for total fitness.
"The Media often leaves you confused, ill-informed, or even worse: completely scammed or lied to with offers of quick fixes, magic potions, or crazy contraptions promising unrealistic results," cautions Burke. "With obesity rates higher than they’ve ever been, and aging baby-boomers growing more concerned than ever with their health, it's high time someone shed some light on this very convoluted subject."
Defining strength training and explaining why it is so important in a concise and simplified manner makes for a book that helps the reader truly comprehend the significance of strength training. Burke goes on to explain the benefits and guidelines as well as how to properly structure your resistance training program, including compound and isolation exercises that will make your workouts more effective. She covers topics such as what to eat before and after strength training, and how to safely implement this hugely essential component of fitness, from beginning strength training to intermediate and advanced levels.
This book breaks strength training down into comprehensible concepts including practical sample workouts, giving anybody who truly wants to change their health and their lives in profound ways the tools and knowledge to do so.
So You Want To Strength Train...Now What? gives you essential information and step-by-step guidance so that you can structure the strength training component of your fitness plan in a way that will deliver permanent results for a healthier, happier life no matter what your age or fitness level.
