WEIGHT TRAINING WORKOUTS THAT
WORK Vol. I & II - Book Review
Book Review by Shirley
Roe, AllBooks Rreview
This 12- week program is
designed to increase lean muscle tissue and burn fat.
The book is laid out in weekly
workouts increasing the number of sets over a chosen time. It includes
charts for the reader to document their own progress as they work
the book. Little anecdotes of inspiration are sprinkled throughout.
In order to gain some insight
from fitness professionals, this reviewer passed the two-volume set on
to two people in the industry. The following are their comments.
Laura Hodge, Fitness Instructor
Specialist had these comments after reading the books. "It would be my
suggestion that the author include more cardio in order to promote fat
burning. The program is well laid out however there is no reference to
page numbers for the specific exercises making it less convenient to
than it could be."
James Krywan, Personal Trainer
stated "I feel this book is geared more to beginners and amateur
due to its simple non-technical nature. Professionals would like to see
more reference to muscle anatomy and the use of proper terms i.e.
major rather than chest."
On the whole both experts
felt that this was a well written, well thought out program for weight
training workouts for the general public.
Author James Orvis is a certified
