Sculpt and tone your body with fitness training programs and wholesome recipes worthy of the woman you are!

Desk-bound nine-to-five jobs, childbirth, and household duties are tough on a woman’s body, which is why strength training is so important for the modern-day woman. As she juggles multiple tasks throughout the day, a woman must also take time out for herself to strengthen her body physically, as well as from the inside out.

Easy to follow and accompanied by step-by-step photographs, the training programs in Strength Training for Women, which are suitable for women of varying skill levels, will have you perspiring, aching, and then enjoying the results. Follow a three-stage model that begins with basic strength training for each major muscle group, followed by trainings to develop your minor muscles, and finally a program to burn off the remaining excess fat, revealing a new, healthy, wonderfully toned you.

A full supplementary chapter on food will also educate you on what you should eat and when, providing a weekly eating schedule and some of Olga Rönnberg’s healthiest and most delicious recipes. Watch as your muscles and skeleton become stronger, resulting in a stronger, healthier, and more beautiful body fit for the woman you are!

To the point, and skipping the fluff beginner's exercise training book. I like that the author does not overwhelm the reader with information. Even with what is presented, you can choose the part you deem relevant. The exercises and schedule are nothing new, the author just provides her recommendations for a simple easy-to-follow program. The vivid pictures and summary at the end were a welcome bonus.

Would be interested to see a real personal trainer take a look at this book and review it. From what I do know, I saw a lot wrong with it and do not recommend it at all.
