While the first edition of Build Muscle, Lose Fat, Look Great may have been the most complete book on how to transform your body, the second edition is even better. The most important change is the brand new Chapter 17: How to design your own training programs. This chapter reflects Stuart’s six years of additional experience and research. In addition, Chapter 19 has been revised, as have some of the most important sections of exercise technique in Chapter 12. And many other improvements have been made throughout the book.
There are 24 chapters and 640 pages crammed with practical, safe and highly effective instruction on just about everything to do with building a terrific physique, including 200 pages (and hundreds of photos) devoted to exercise technique. And it includes comprehensive material for beginners, so that they can get started correctly. But the book is not just for beginners. Its guidance is for intermediate and advanced bodybuilders, too.
Build Muscle, Lose Fat, Look Great is a definitive guide for men and women of all ages. Learn how to become your own expert personal trainer.
