    Very comprehensive overview of hundreds of exercises that can be done using gym equipment, home equipment (stability balls, dumbbells, etc.), and/or no equipment. The photos detailing each exercise are in full color and the accompanying explanations are detailed, specific, and easy to follow.

    The book is broken down into chapters dedicated to body parts: Chest, Back, Shoulders, Arms, Quadriceps & Calves, Glutes & Hamstrings, Core, as well as chapters for Total Body and Warmup Exercises. There is also a chapter on how to put various exercises together for specific-goal workouts (e.g. “The Get Your Body Back Workout”, “The Skinny Jeans Workout”, “The Bikini-Ready Workout”, “The Best Sports Workout”, “The Best Three-Exercise Workouts”). In addition, there are chapters dedicated to Nutrition, Cardio Workouts, the importance of Weights, etc.

    All in all, this is an extremely comprehensive book that is not at all about gimmicks or shortcuts but is simply well researched and well presented. It will literally replace several books I’ve bought on this subject in past years. I’m not easily impressed by books on this subject and yet I’m extremely impressed by this compilation. Well done Adam Campbell and contributors!

    I just received this book in the mail and I am much happier with it than I could have ever expected. The book is comprised of the following: a FAQ section, a diet and exercise plan, 14 exercise programs to choose from, a nutrition chapter, a cardio chapter, and chapters of exercises for each of the following: chest, back, shoulders, arms, quads & calves, glutes & hamstrings, core, total body, and warmup exercises. The pictures in the book are very clear and easy to follow. As for the equipment needed, I’ve found that most of the chapters have exercises that can be done with or without access to a gym.

    My favorite part about this book is the chapter on different exercise programs. This book offers the following exercise plans: “The Get Your Body Back Workout,” “The Best Workouts for a Crowded Gym,” “The Skinny Jeans Workout,” “The Bikini Ready Workout,” “The Wedding Workout,” “The Hard Body Workout,” “The Lose the Last 10 Pounds Workout,” “The Best Sports Workout,” “The Best Three Exercise Workouts,” “The Prenatal Workout,” “The Time Saving Couples Workout,” “The Best Body-Weight Workouts,” “The Best 15 Minute Workouts,” and “The Spartacus Workout.”

    Overall, I would highly recommend this product. This is the only book I’ll ever need for weight lifting exercises!

    I used to have a personal trainer, but after 20 sessions I had to quit. I missed having someone show me different exercises to transform my body but not anymore! After ordering several exercise books that were sorely disappointing, I was skeptical about this one. But after reading all of the positive reviews I thought I would give it a try. I am SO glad that I did! There are TONS of exercises for EVERY body part and the best feature is that the pictures are ALL in color! There is an example for every single exercise in the book and variations or modifications for many of the exercises too! I have always enjoyed the Women’s Health magazine and this book exceeded my expectations as well. This is a must have for any fitness enthusiast!

    This book is fabulous! I do a lot of working out, but was doing a lot of it wrong so I ended up in physical therapy. My PT showed me different exercises in the book to do as I was healing up. There are multiple levels of each exercise so if one is too easy, you can step up to a more challenging version. I have done one of the circuits in the back of the book, and yes it is hard, but I have really strengthened up now. I have purchased this book for two others now also. It’s awesome!

    As this is the beginning of a new year, it seems appropriate to be doing a fitness book review. The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises by Adam Campbell is a comprehensive and valuable guide to fitness for women. There are fantastic color photos used for examples, hundreds of exercises targeting specific body areas, and it even includes specializedworkouts and great information on nutrition. It reviews the importance of using weights in a workout program and why it is so important.

    Overall, I really liked this book. It has an enormous amount of useful information that is broken down into simple terms and examples, so that even a beginner can use it effectively. It truly has something for everyone. However, it may be best for someone who has access to a gym which already has all the required equipment. Many women (particularly those just starting out in fitness) simply don’t have all (if any) of the equipment required to accomplish many of these exercises. Other than that, it really is a valuable resource!

    This book was provided to me for review by Rodale Publishers.
