    One thought on “Weight Training for Dummies”

    1. Excellent beginners guide. Filled in a lot of holes left by advisers at all the gyms I've been to. No matter how many questions you think to ask, there will always be plenty more you don't know to ask - this book really helps with that!

    2. A good comprehensive guide for the beginner. This book covers free weights as well as weight machines and even includes a chapter (too brief, I thought) on pilates and yoga. The book cannot take the place of working with an experienced trainer but would be a great supplement.

    3. Good overview on weight training. It has enough information to start your own home workout (both for planning and implementation). Additionally, it touches topics like nutrition and yoga in relation to weight training very lightly.

    4. Despite the title, a very good introduction into weight training and fitness. Recommended for anyone who is thinking of lifting weights.

    5. I guess I confused "for Dummies" with "for skinnies" and thought I'd need this. It was helpful to learn that my grading system for myself can have a sliding scale of what exactly "fitness" means.

    6. This is a practical book giving the basics of working out with weights. If you want to do that, this is a good book to get you started or provide guidance to various machines and routines.

    7. I got this in December and by mid-January had injured my shoulder joints, and am still getting physiotherapy 9 months later. Dummy is the truth, I should never have considered lifting weights!
