Weight Training without Injury is a very professionally packaged book. At the beginning is a question-and-answer section demonstrating the authors’ expertise. Tips for positioning the head, foot, back, knee, and more are explained in detailed. The key feature of this volume are the pictures. Green-highlighted photos show exactly how to position the body when completing exercises such as the free weight squat, the lunge, leg press, calf raise, the row, flat bench press, chest fly, shoulder press and more. Red-highlighted photos show what NOT to do so as to avoid damage to the muscles and ligaments. Equipment recommendations are provided along with weight-training tips.
Questions such as: ‘What should comprehensive core routines emphasize?’ ‘How to avoid deadlifts?’ and ‘When to use a barbell or not?’ are answered. My personal favorite were the proposed exercises for a frozen shoulder.
The highly visual nature makes this book easy to use without a personal trainer. Or, it could be used as a personal trainer training manual. I recommend reading Weight Training without Injury.
