A definitive photo guide to the anatomy of bodyweight strength training from the best-selling author of You Are Your Own Gym
With his first book, You Are Your Own Gym, Mark Lauren showed how to transform your body by performing simple but effective bodyweight exercises. Now he’s back with an encyclopedic collection of more than 100 anatomically correct illustrations and photos that allow you to see exactly which muscles are being worked in each exercise. Thanks to this clear approach, you quickly learn proper form, as well as ways to avoid injury and get the best results in the shortest amount of time.
By using these exercises and annotated illustrations, it’s simple to put together a personalized, targeted workout routine for every goal—including building the entire body, rehabbing a specific area or focusing on toning the muscles required for a specific sport. The book also features essential information about structuring workouts and designing a muscle building agenda.
