Women are joining gyms and running marathons in record numbers. They are also learning about the preventive effect of exercise on diseases and conditions, including heart disease, osteoporosis, dementia and breast cancer. Anatomy of Exercise for Women provides women of all ages with exercise programmes that will bring great benefits in physical fitness, psychological well-being and meeting the challenges of daily life. Like all of the books in the series, it contains: * detailed full-colour anatomical illustrations for all the exercises * annotations identifying the active and stabilising muscles * concise how-to instructions for each exercise * identification of the specific muscles that benefit the most from each exercise * a glossary of anatomical terms. Exercises are presented individually and then also in pre-designed workouts that let women focus on what they want to improve the most - leaner legs; thighs and glutes; arm toner; core strength and stability; all-over toner and working the waistline. An ideal reference guide to help any woman reach her fitness goals.
