No piece of exercise equipment is more convenient, reliable, versatile and effective at building lean muscle and boosting post-workout metabolic rate than the venerable dumbbell and its cousins the kettlebell and sandbag. Together, these are the tools that will reshape the way we think about fitness and this book will stand as the definitive guide to targeting the key muscles that men and women want to develop and tone.
The beauty of these tools is that they are simple, inexpensive, and can be used in a small space so readers can exercise in the convenience of their homes. Most important is that they allow the freedom to use a full range of motion, unlike the rigid, limiting structure of weight machines. No longer restrained by the typical up/down motion of barbells and machines, readers can become strong in any direction. And sanctioned by Men's Health, this book demonstrates with large color photos more than 150 strength exercises that incorporate the three key movements—pushing, pulling, and swinging—that make up the perfect full-range-of-motion workout. Because it emphasizes building functional strength for real-world application and total-body fitness Men's Health Push, Pull, Swing by Myatt Murphy, CSCS will appeal to beginners as well as fitness buffs, especially those who enjoy CrossFit style workouts.
|I found this to be a very useful book. It goes through Technics for the use of dumbbells, kettle-bells, pull machine, sand bags, and many other pieces of training equipment. Not just on how to use them or exercises, but also how your muscles react to the different movements. There are guides and pictures of the human body and muscle groups to explain the author’s points. I found this book to be far more helpful and had more information than the books I used to use about weight lifting. I got this book from netgalley. I gave this book 4 stars.
