    Werner Kieser(Author)
This concise and clearly presented manual explains the principles and methods behind the Kieser training methods for tackling and preventing back problems.

'A superb guide ... its easy to see why Werner Kieser's Full Strength: A Training Handbook for a Strong Back and a Healthy Body could prove to be one of the most significant books of the decade. The Keiser centre in Camden is not the kind of place to find hordes of gym rats strutting about in slinky leotards. Instead it's a no-frills fount of knowledge. Just like the book, in fact.' - Time Out --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

    Full Strength is a well written and comprehensive guide to strength training for health and medical purposes. Its contents are based on medically proven practices used in the highly successful and ethical Kieser (pronounced Key-zer) Training facilities found across Europe and now available in the UK at Camden and Fulham (London), see [...] for more information.Over 200 pages it answers every conceivable question related to strength training, with particular emphasis on its importance to slowing degeneration in our aging population.The book is broken down into eleven key sections:1. Why we need strength - what is strength training, its benefits and its importance as we age.2. Theory and practice - basic anatomy, the theory behind developing strong muscles and considerations while training.3. Technology - the stages of strength development and how medical grade exercise machines work.4. Muscles - a guide to the basic muscles in our arms, legs and trunk.5. Training principles - how to strength train.6. Exercises - a description of the most important exercises for building strength.7. Programmes and methods - different approaches to strength training8. Therapy - basics of medical muscular strengthening therapy to prevent and cure chronic lower back pain, osteoporosis etc...9. Supplementary action - notes on diet, UV rays, clothing among others.10. Instructing strength training as a profession11. Fallacies and prejudices - explains why much of what we believe about strength training is wrong, e.g. strength training is only for young people.The print quality and layout of the text are impeccable. All the diagrams are clear and the descriptions are simple yet precise.I would highly recommend this text to anyone interested in learning more about safe and productive strength training. It is especially useful for those with little knowledge of the subject and the more mature individual (40+).
