    2nd ed. Great basic book, Explains how & why muscles work, August 19, 1998
    By A Customer
    Please note that I have seen only the 2nd ed 1994, 1989, of Fahey’s book and I really liked it. Why? He explains how your muscles work and provides a background and a solid foundation, which to design your on workout routine based solely on your personal goals. I think it was written to be a “basic weight training” book hence the title. He does not take an extreme view …body building or aerobics, which I believe many body builders would not care for it …IT’S A BASIC book for beginners. He does explain from the viewpoint of a professional explaining the basic’s which MOST people fall into.

    I was exposed to this book in the University’s library and out of the 10-15 books on the shelf I liked this one the best.

    -Good illustrations that show the muscle being used

    -Facts based on exercise physiology

    -Information given to design your own workout routine…he does not think for you

    -Chapters broken-down into neat units, though I would have put the nutrition chapter before the weight training section.

    Fahey hits the basic target audience rather well if you ask me.

    Weight Training 101, February 25, 2001
    By 
    Darren (Jersey Shore, NJ USA) –

    In his 3rd edition of this book, exercise physiologist Tom Fahey , continues to present the basics of weight training and offers the latest information from some sports medicine and exercise physiology research. The book is simple and concise. It is recommended for the person who has limited or even no weight training experience or knowledge but who is interested in starting a weight lifting routine.

    Chapters include information on muscle development, exercise mechanics and specfic chapters that will help you develop different areas of the body such as chest & shoulders, arms, abdominals, neck and back,and lower body. In addition to exercises with free weights, Fahey also includes routines using Universal Gym and Nautilus type equipment. A chapter on nutrition includes information on diet and performance, steroids and eating disorders.

    This is a good primer for developing a beginner’s weight training program.

    Finally an author who writes for everyone., March 30, 1999
    By A Customer
    The book could have done with less anatomical descriptions (we didn’t all fail biology) but overall, it describes the muscle role and the muscle building process in a clear and efficient manner. For anyone starting bodybuilding, or those who have started but aren’t happy with their results, I recommend this book. It lacks some usefull information such as cardio-vascular recuperation, but if you didn’t fail biology you know already how that works.
