Synopsis
This book gives readers a well-balanced, self-paced programme and the knowledge they need to design a customised weight training programme. It includes a basic programme and alternative exercises for lever-arm and cam-type machines as well as free weights. "Weight Training: Steps to Success" features a skill progression that helps readers learn techniques and principles quickly and safely. This 16-step progression of proven techniques prevents injuries and maximises progress. Weight trainers will learn why each concept or exercise is important, to correct technique, how to correct common errors, how to practise each exercise in realistic ways, specific performance goals for each drill, and how to evaluate proper technique. By following the practise procedures and drills readers will also learn how to perform exercises in a safe manner, make needed changes in programme intensity and cool down properly, select appropriate exercises for each large muscle group, follow easy-to-difficult drills, chart their workouts, and design programmes that meet their personal training goals. An accompanying video is also available which shows beginners everything they need to know to start a well-balanced weight training programme. It is aimed at strength and fitness instructors, coaches, and others who are interested in showing beginners how to safely and effectively lift weights. Step by step, it demonstrates how to perform the same 19 exercises that are covered in the book.
