    Over 500 full-color photos and 485 full-color illustrations allow you to go inside 60 exercises, 19 stretches, and 9 programmed workouts to see how muscles interact with surrounding joints and skeletal structures and how variations, progressions, and sequencing can affect muscle recruitment, the underlying structures, and ultimately the results.

    The Strength Training Anatomy Workout, Volume II, includes proven programming for adding lean muscle mass, improving strength, and increasing power. Targeted workouts allow you to focus on specific muscle groups such as such as chest, biceps, triceps, quads, and core. It’s all here and in all the stunning detail that only Frédéric Delavier can provide!

    The former editor in chief of PowerMag in France, author and illustrator Frédéric Delavier is a journalist for Le Monde du Muscle and a contributor to Men’s Health Germany and several other strength publications.
