Joe Weider's Weight Training for Sports

Joe Weider, Author Sterling Publishing (NY) $10.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-8069-6238-2
Weight training to enhance sports performance is so commonplace that this grab-all seems superfluous. Once more, big-name coaches and professional athletes testify to the value of weight training, and yet again one of the nation's flashiest muscle entrepreneurs extols the ""findings'' of the Weider Research Institute's anonymous scientists. But the basic techniques and programs provided here for participants in 11 sports may be beneficial to those with little knowledge of exercising with free weights and non-Nautilus machines. There's also a cursory nod to nutrition, aerobics, agility training and stretching. Women will find little of interest, howeverthe muscular figures in the drawings are mostly those of males, an emphasis repeated in the text. (February)
