Bodybuilding for Men
Total Strength and Fitness - the way to do it
By Oscar Heidenstam
Bodybuilding is for everyone-and you can do it with or without machines, in a health club or at home.
It's never too late to start bodybuilding, whatever your age or condition. It is used by sports people worldwide and can improve your appearance and attractiveness beyond your wildest dreams.
Bodybuilding takes care of your whole physique. It also keeps you both mentally and physically fit - better able to face the stresses and strains of everyday life. And with all this comes improved confidence, better concentration, and a spring in your stride!
Unfortunately, many men who would like to take up this health-giving activity, and who attempt to find out about it, are discouraged by what seems to be a confusion of complicated workout routines and anatomical and dietary do's and don'ts. Bodybuilding For Men cuts through all this confusion.
Section I is a concise, simple and general introduction to the practice of bodybuilding and contains advice on how to start, down-to-earth dietary information, and a guide to basic bodybuilding exercises and workouts. It also features many of the world's top bodybuilders in exciting action.
Section II is a step-by-step color picture guide to all the exercises described in the first section.
Whether you have ambitions to become the next Mr. Universe, whether you want to improve your performance in sports, or whether you just want to look good on the beach, Bodybuilding for Men is the book for you.
