Many men and women of all ages turn to weight training as a safe and enjoyable way of improving their fitness. This illustrated, practical guide is divided into two sections. The first discusses the principles behind the sport, including valuable information on muscle function, diet, posture and balanced fitness. The second shows how these principles may be applied in the gym, describing basic exercizes for the novice and introducing advanced techniques for the more experienced athlete. Safety is emphasized throughout. Written for coaches, sports people and keep-fit enthusiasts alike, this book is useful reading for anyone wanting to get the maximum benefit from their weight training. Norris is a chartered physiotherapist and sports scientist, and an established lecturer and paramedical journalist. He currently works in Cheshire at his own practice and is consultant physiotherapist to a number of multinational companies in the north-west of England.
