Book Review: The New Rules of Lifting for Women By Lou
Schuler with Cassandra Forsythe, M.S.; Workout Programs by Alwyn Cosgrove
As fitness professionals, we are continually faced with
similar concerns among our female clientele. They don't want to "bulk up,"
they want to "tone" and "lengthen" their muscles, long
cardio is the only workout for them or the common belief that doing daily
crunches is the answer to a flat stomach. Enter The New Rules of Lifting for Women by Lou Schuler. This is an
incredibly versatile book: give it as a resource to a client or add it as a
go-to reference book in your resource library. The book not only provides six
months of effective, challenging and specifically designed workout and meal
plans, but candidly delivers the no-nonsense "New Rules" of training
that any lay exerciser can understand and apply while backed with applicable
science and research.
