Publisher's Summary

Using strength training as a fitness regime you're able to use resistance in order to not only make the skeletal muscles within your body stronger, but it also helps to increase their size and anaerobic endurance. When it comes to strength training there are many different types you can undertake. In this book Strength Training for Beginners I will explain in more detail about not only the benefits of strength training, but also how to get your training started.

However before we look at these areas I'm going to explain a little bit about where it originates. Up until the 20th Century, you'll find the history of strength training is very similar to that of weight training. However with the arrival of certain technologies, materials and knowledge that's come to light since the 20th Century the methods we now use as part of our strength-training regime have grown somewhat. In fact, if you were to look back at what has been written over the century's regarding strength training, it was something the Ancient Greeks were already doing. Certainly when you look at some of the pictures that appear on ancient Greek cups and plates you'll see images of men carrying things such as large animals on their back or lifting what seems to be a set of weights.

Not what I needed

I didn't like the guys voice, it was very monotone and annoying.
Everything written was obvious here and I wouldn't recommend .
