Weight training isn't just for muscleheads like Arnold Schwarzenegger any more. Now, health experts are telling us that lifting weights strengthens your bones, boosts your energy, and helps you lose fat. Weight Training For Dummies helps you design a program that's right for you with information you not only can trust but also understand. Health and fitness experts Liz Neporent and Suzanne Schlosberg talk you through whatever misconceptions you may have about weight training, and show you how to set goals and achieve them. They lay out basic principles of weight training for you, so that you can make sense of unfamiliar equipment at a gym or get the workout you want at home. Even if you already lift weights as part of your regular fitness routine, Weight Training For Dummies will inspire you to try new and different things with suggestions for improving your current exercises. Unlike other weight training books you may have seen, Weight Training For Dummies also offers tips specially tailored for kids, seniors, moms-to-be, and anyone who'd just like to lose some weight.
