Booklist - Todd Morning

"Young athletes will find this a clear and concise introduction to the basics of strength training. The directions are easily understandable—and numbered—and are accompanied by excellent photographs, featuring both female and male athletes. Necessary equipment is also kept simple and includes bands, a few free weights, a medicine ball, and a stability ball. The suggested exercises deal with all of the major muscle groups—legs, core, arms, and shoulders. To work your core, for instance, the book recommends sets of ball crunches, back bends, and single-leg squats (a sidebar reminds about the importance of form). Tips on avoiding injuries and the reasons for the exercises are also mentioned. Other books in the series focus on such topics as nutrition, stamina, and developing speed. This will be a great fit for young athletes seeking basic introductions to training and conditioning." - Booklist
