Frédéric Delavier, the mastermind of the best-selling Strength Training Anatomy phenomenon, is at it again. More than two million readers have turned to his books, including Strength Training Anatomy, to find the most effective exercises in strength training. The Strength Training Anatomy Workout provided beginners with program guidelines to develop fitness and athletic performance. The Strength Training Anatomy Workout II followed to offer serious strength trainers and bodybuilders the keys to creating lean muscle mass. Now, in The Strength Training Anatomy Workout III, Delavier and coauthor Michael Gundill pick up where Volume II left off to help you continue developing beyond the tapering phase with advanced training techniques. This guide uncovers the secrets of strength training to address three problems facing serious athletes:
How to achieve strength gains when the more you progress, the harder it is to progress further
How to keep popular misconceptions from limiting your training
How to solve typical problems that you experience after years of strength training
The Strength Training Anatomy Workout III is loaded with 146 of Delavier’s unparalleled illustrations and 195 photos depicting proper exercise technique and highlighting how muscles interact with surrounding joints and skeletal structures. Exercise descriptions include technique, explanation of muscle engagement and interactions, variations, benefits, limitations, and safety considerations. You’ll assemble these exercises into advanced programs for long-term strength and muscle development. Break past your training plateaus with high-tech strength training protocols like electrical stimulation, blood flow restriction, and vibration and oscillation training. Avoid injury and muscle fatigue with advanced strategies that promote nerve, tendon, and joint recovery.
In the striking detail that only Frédéric Delavier provides, The Strength Training Anatomy Workout III will help you cross the threshold to advanced muscle development and strength gains.
