Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Campbell is an industry leader in personal fitness advice. This book is visually driven; the exercises are expertly photographed and displayed in color with callouts and directional arrows that instruct readers. Exercises range from beginner to advanced. Unlike typical fitness book which offers 8-to-12-week plan, The Big Book of Exercises provides scores of workouts for dozens of different goals. There's not a book that compares in pure number of exercises (over 600) and especially not one targeted to women.

Someone I knew recommended this book and it is chalk full of the information I needed: exercises I can do at home (with or without extra equipment). It includes all kinds of information on how to start, what exercises are good for beginning and how to develop more advanced workouts depending on your goals. It has full body options as well as targeted muscle groups. Every exercise has pictorial examples and discusses proper technique/form, as well as modifications for making each exercise easier or harder. I've been doing the "beginners" routine for six weeks and am now shifting to the other routines in the book. I love how the book "grows" with my improvement and can continue to offer value as my fitness improves.
In reading the reviews, some people complained that the Men's Health Big Book of Exercises was the exact same book with a man pictured doing the routines rather than a woman. With this knowledge in mind, I told my husband that the books were identical and he felt comfortable just using my book to develop his own routine (inspired by my increased interest in resistance training). He has been a marathon runner for several years, but is now also focusing on these exercises as well.
As a result of our commitment to this book, we've been gradually adding some equipment to our home (though this is not necessary to begin!). We agreed not to rush into buying anything expensive, but after about 4 weeks of both using these books, we found an adjustable dumbbell set on Craigslist. We're both able to use them (at different weight settings) and they take up a lot less room than a full set of traditional dumbbells. Otherwise we just use a yoga ball and yoga mat. As we continue to grow our fitness, we may consider investing in more - but don't let a lack of gym equipment stop you from beginning.
My ONLY complaint would be that the book does NOT have some of the updated workouts you may have seen your favorite Youtube vloggers do. I can't think of them all right now but one more would be the "Superman" move. It also has a very small cardio section that is really the moves already discussed combined as a combo routine.
As a beginner I found SOME moves I could do to add to my routine, maybe 2-5 per muscle group, but that's not as much for a book of 500+ moves. I'm thinking as I progress more on my fitness journey I can use this book as a reference, as I am trying to design my own workout plan for my YT channel :)
