Very good The illustrations are great and the explanations of the moves are well done. It is especially nice that all of the illustrations are with males; this was a selling point for me because females have a slightly different anatomy, and all the competing books on the market have large sections with the female muscular structure.He does put a few of the traditional exercises in different categories. For instance, shrugs are usually grouped with the shoulders, but he places them with the back. Sometimes so many muscles are named that it gets slightly confusing.Great book.

This book is an excellent resource for anatomy, posing, musculature and even foreshortened musculature reference. It compares photos of different muscle building exercises to muscle overlays. It is essential for artists to not only know the muscles of the body, but how they contract and flex in different positions, and this book is an indispensable resource for exactly that.

I bought this book for my daughter as a Christmas gift and she was very happy when she opened it. She is a personal trainer and had asked for it.
