With expert analysis of technique for more than 100 resistance training exercises, Effective Strength Training is just the guide you need to ensure these exercises are performed correctly and with minimal risk. Drawing on the latest scientific principles and theories related to resistance training, Effective Strength Training provides the "how" and the "why" behind the proper performance of popular upper-body, lower-body, and trunk exercises. By understanding the purpose and correct form for each exercise, you can gain the full benefit each exercise provides and avoid injury. Whether you teach strength training or do it yourself, you'll find new and helpful information that you can put to use. Douglas Brooks, one of the top personal trainers in the United States, questions the safety of controversial exercises such as the upright row, dipping movements, cable exercises, and machine chest presses. After putting these exercises to the test of objective scientific evaluation, he then recommends valuable guidelines for safe use. Effective Strength Training also addresses high-risk situations where exercises fall short of safe biomechanical standards. If you're dealing with orthopedic limitations--such as knee or back problems--or challenging training goals, these solutions will help you make prudent, corrective modifications. Practical and to the point, this book also presents the latest information related to resistance training program design and defines and discusses topics such as training systems, periodization principles, and a continuum of training programs. Effective Strength Training is full of no-nonsense strategies and expert advice that will simplify the design and teaching of programs to meet the best interests of your clients or students. And, if you're a strength trainer yourself--especially if you're seeking certification by the International Weightlifting Association--this resource will help you successfully reach all your training goals.

Linkul puts out a bi-weekly newsletter, which inspired this book, as he sends out information to assist both his clients and other trainers. "I have grown tired of all the "fads" and "myths" of the certified personal training business and decided I would put out a email to all my clients discussing a topics like "site specific reduction" or "crash diets." The support I received after sending out the first newsletter inspired me to keep writing. My goal is to change the way people think of fitness. I call it the "fitness revolution." This book is a combination of education, experience and research all put together and thrown down on paper. These are my confessions as a certified personal trainer. Many trainers will not tell you information like you will read in this book. That is why I call it a revolution. We are breaking away from the norm and developing something new. With science and research as my guide, I will educate you on a new way to train, the right way to training."
