Keeping in shape and showing off a toned body is not only an aesthetic advantage, but also a basic requirement for good health and total physical strength. The good news is there is no need to pump iron at a gym to achieve this! New workout trends crop up every day, demonstrating that being fit will never again be exclusive to fitness centers.
Strength training is no exception, and although there is no doubt that the traditional equipment in fitness centers can be very effective, it is also evident that the continued practice of calisthenics or CrossFit results in strong and muscular bodies. This is because there are some basic principles of training and bodybuilding used in all disciplines and, despite the differences between them, this common base allows for visible results.
This book will introduce the reader to:
* Basic principles of strength training and tips for fueling the body and designing effective workout routines.
* Exercises that use either body weight or common, yet unconventional, items and target specific muscle groups, incorporating alternatives for beginners and those more advanced.
* Weekly routines for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. All exercises are presented in order and indicate the number of sets and repetitions. Page numbers have been added so the reader can easily find the main exercise.
This book includes only the information needed to learn to train autonomously and obtain the best possible results. Remember that no method is guaranteed to be successful, but readers can derive benefits from several methods when they approach training with an open mind, and this book will help them do just that. With Anatomy & Strength Training, the reader will become their strongest, healthiest self!
