A key title in the successful Complete Guides series, this is the definitive text on using free weights for strength, conditioning and flexibility training.
Free weights are the simplest and most effective pieces of equipment and are found in every gym and many homes. The benefits of their use - as opposed to fixed-weight machines - are becoming increasingly appreciated in the fitness industry, and include:
saving money on gym membership with home workouts
a wider range of exercises
exercises working more muscles than fixed machines for a quicker workout
avoiding over-training single muscle groups, which can lead to strength imbalances
better co-ordination and core stability
In addition to a variety of exercises, the book will also contain sample programmes, tips on technique, and exercises for specific sports, ages and body types.
