Publisher's Summary

There is a difference between exercise and training. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for the effect it produces today, during the workout, or right after you're through. Training is physical activity done with a longer-term goal in mind, the constituent workouts of which are specifically designed to produce that goal. Training is how athletes prepare to win, and how all motivated people approach physical preparation.

Strength Training details the mechanics of the process, from the basic physiology of adaptation to the specific programs that apply these principles to novice, intermediate, and advanced lifters.

This scientific and practical book reveals that there is no single program that works for everyone, at all times and in all conditions. It addresses the complexity of strength-training programs, while providing straightforward approaches to take under specific circumstances. Those approaches are backed with physiological concepts, ensuring listeners gain a full understanding of the science behind the practice of strength training. In addition, Health Class provide examples of strength-training programs to demonstrate the principles and concepts they explain in the book.

With new exercises, additional stretches, and more signature descriptions, you’ll gain a whole new understanding of how muscles perform during strength exercises. This book offers the best of strength-training advice.
