After receiving my copy and reading through the book, I was quite impressed, both with the easy to understand, consistent layout of the book and the well researched information it contains.
I brought it to one of my doctor's appts. I've been able to add 2 exercises to begin with and we are going to gradually build from there. Very exciting and motivating! I'd also like to say that while I was reading the book, I thought it would be terrific for my 21 year old son. He's a senior in college, and for work and as a passion, he has trained to be a guide for very challenging mountain and cliff climbing, cross country skiing 3 day no frills survivalist trips and white water rafting and kayak extended trips.
All of this requires quite a bit of body strength, for which he regularly works to maintain. As he has to go to the campus gym to use equipment for this, I thought this book would be terrific for him because you need no equipment for the exercises. It's often very crowded at the campus gym with long waits to use the equipment. So, I am definitely going to download a copy for him for Christmas - he can use the program anywhere he goes - except maybe when he's dangling from the side of a cliff, which I must say as a Mom puts my heart in my throat.
So anything I can do to help maintain maximum safety for him is money well spent! There are also other books in this series, a few that a plan to download. There are many more to choose from! Again the beauty is you don't need equipment for any of the exercises and the book is exceptionally well done.
Thank you so very much again for the complimentary copy of "Bodyweight Strength Training Anatomy"! Dec 28, Meredith rated it it was amazing. A super guide with very clear explanations and diagrams of how to do each exercise, and exactly what muscles they hit.
The book explains how high intensity intervals and metabolic conditioning work, with examples of how to do each. There are sample routines built for purpose that are really easy to follow and adjust to your own needs based on your requirements.
As an Olympic weightlifter and competitive rower, I have special interest in the whole-body routines that build strength and mobility. Y A super guide with very clear explanations and diagrams of how to do each exercise, and exactly what muscles they hit. You don't need a gym or costly equipment to do these workouts, they get real results, and are an excellent complement to sport-specific training.

This book combines a calisthenics manual with the anatomical drawings and descriptions necessary to explain the muscle activations involved in each exercise. It takes a very straightforward approach, being organized by body part. Each chapter discusses the component muscles of said part and their unique features, and then gives a series of exercises to work said part. For each exercise, at least one anatomical drawing is provided, showing the primary and secondary muscles being worked in the exe This book combines a calisthenics manual with the anatomical drawings and descriptions necessary to explain the muscle activations involved in each exercise.
For each exercise, at least one anatomical drawing is provided, showing the primary and secondary muscles being worked in the exercise. In some cases, more than one drawing is needed to convey the full range of motion of the exercise, but in many cases one drawing is sufficient. Each exercise also receives a brief bullet-point description of the action, a textual list of muscles utilized, and notes on issues and cautions to keep in mind to get the most out of the exercise.
Chapter 1 sets the stage for the rest of the book. It discusses general principles to be kept in mind like the need to balance opposing muscle groups, and it also lays out the advantages and limitations of callisthenic, or bodyweight, workouts over other approaches to fitness.
In other words, with a little creativity and some quality doors, robust furniture, or park access, one can do all of these exercises without either a gym membership or costly trips to the sporting goods store.
Of course, one does need sturdy stationary objects to pull against, particularly to maintain a balanced upper body. Chapters 2 through 9 each focuses on a particular body part, including respectively: Each chapter starts with some general information on muscle action before launching into the exercises.
If you have a particular interest in developing your glutes i.

The author specializes in glutes, and while there are about a typical number of exercises for that musculature, the background information up front is more extensive than for most of the other chapters. The penultimate chapter, Ch. The final chapter offers an overview of all the factors to keep in mind when arranging exercises into a program e.
A section on exercise for fat loss is included, which is important not only because there are so many people interested in that subject but also because there is so much misinformation out there. As mentioned, most of the graphics are anatomical drawings showing the muscles in cut-away as the action of the exercise is being performed. There are a few other graphics to help clarify information, as well as tables in the last couple chapters to present information in an organized and easy to use fashion.
I found this book to be informative and well organized. Nov 07, Charles rated it liked it Shelves: In the introduction to different body sections, the author has a lot of statements about the Ideal Body and like, strength training for vanity, and what men vs women want to look like.
I'm not into that. Otherwise, though, it seems like a pretty good reference volume. The illustrations are clear and effective. Each exercise is well-described. So that's all fine. Mar 12, Mel rated it really liked it. This book gives exercises based on body weight and things you can find in your home to do exercises.

Good illustrations using male and female and the muscles worked. I think I'm going to have to download this one. Dec 11, Ashuk rated it really liked it.

I picked this up from the library, which was a mistake. This is the book you download to keep on your shelf, not something you read on the train to work. Planning on downloading a copy for this reason.

Jan 04, Khurram rated it it was amazing. This is a great book teaching to do the basic exercises properly. The illustrations are great about which exercise work which muscles.
The exercises range from basic to advance. There is a meter at the top saying what lever the exercise is supposed to be set for. One of the misconceptions I want to clear up. Yes we can all do press up, however as the author states there are dozens of variations of press up, a change as slight as changing from normal to knuckle press ups work different muscles. In This is a great book teaching to do the basic exercises properly.
In this book Brent does give different variations not every variant ranging from popular to challenging. He does give a breakdown of how to work your way up to the Handstand press up by doing less challenging variants to strengthen muscles needed to pull the Handstand press up off. There are a lot of great tips like this to make body weight training more challenging either through repetitions, intensity, or by stringing different excises together.
He does give his advice into creating a personal training program, what to look for and what to try to avoid.Although it has a great repertoire of moves, many I already knew of, so it wasn't a book that really gave a whole lot of new information There was a lot I enjoyed about this book. This book is beautifully illustrated and gives excellent information about each exercise.
