With over 1 million copies sold worldwide, Strength Training Anatomy is now in its third edition and pre-launch sales indicate another record breaking success.
French journalist and anatomical illustrator Frédéric Delavier has changed the way millions of people view strength exercises with Strength Training Anatomy and now, in a new third edition, he adds stretches for each of the major muscle groups.
“These stretching exercises are primarily for aiding function and for avoiding injury, not for acquiring exceptional flexibility,” explains Delavier. “I have also added new muscle-development exercises and have supplemented the old exercises with new drawings and annotations.”
Twelve new strength exercises comprise some of the 48 additional pages in the new edition.
Strength Training Anatomy, Third Edition, offers a whole new understanding of how muscles perform during strength exercises.
This one-of-a-kind best-seller combines the visual detail of top anatomy texts with the best of strength training advice.
Many books explain what muscles are used during exercise, but no other resource brings the anatomy to life like Strength Training Anatomy.
Over 600 full-colour illustrations reveal the primary muscles worked along with all the relevant surrounding structures, including bones, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue.
Like having an X-ray for each exercise, the anatomical depictions show both superficial and deep layers and detail how various setup positions affect muscle recruitment and emphasize underlying structures.
