Bodybuilding and Weight Training

The first part of the book will focus primarily on the basics: creating a weight lifting schedule, designing your diet (which professionals describe as one of the most important parts of bodybuilding), and finding a gym.

Later in the book, you will be instructed in the techniques of the most common bodybuilding exercises, including bench-presses, squats, and dumbbell curls. This section can be considered a reference section, but it is important to thoroughly read through each exercise's guide before attempting the exercise.

Finally, the third section is a reference section which you will find important when constructing your diet.
