    I'm a personal trainer and bought this as I wanted a deeper understanding of how the muscles work during particular exercises. All the main exercises are included and the book is divided into the major muscle groups.The best part about this book are the illustrations. They are in colour and in depth. They show how the muscles relate and overlap each other as well as the insertions.The text itself is not too scientific. It is very easy to understand and is written for the exercise practitioner and not for medical students. Advice is given on how different muscles will be worked when using different grips and stances for certain exercises which is useful. For example, how using a suppinated grip on a curl works the inner part of the Bicep head and how a neutral grip emphasis the long outer head of the biceps.The only thing missing was that the book didn't include some of the major bodyweight exercises such as push ups and pull ups.Nonetheless, this is a must buy for all PT's or just fitness fanatics.

    I got this book when I first wanted to start bodybuilding 15 years ago. It shows the correct positions for every exercise in simple yet detailed ways, explaining why and how each one is done! Every body part is named and helps you become a more efficient weightlifter/bodybuilder. I have bought this book for many relatives and friends who are wanting to start lifting, as this was the best guide for anyone.

    Its the most straight-forward and useful exercise book I have ever worked with. The sections are well organised and each page is clearly annotated for speedy access. The illustrations are excellent and the accompanying commentary tells you exactly what you need to know.

    Anyone looking to fine tune their bodybuilding exercises would benefit from this book. The book is not a training guide but an educational tool to help you understand human anatomy.I have heard some trainers say that you cannot 'sculpt' muscle - Nick Evans has proved them wrong! With the range of compound and isolation exercises you'll never be stuck in varying your workout again.The diagrams are superb and really highlight how to target those difficult to reach areas.

    Great book, just what I wanted. Not full of complicated routines and opinions, just a break down of exercises and the primary and secondary muscles they target. Great reference book.

  • By Mr. A. M. Cannan on 7 July 2010

    If you dont understand what muscles or how to excercise certain muscles this book is for you with great layout and excellent illustrations makes this book a must
