"I truly believe and practice the principle of the slight edge. I just need one idea from a book or magazine article to make a difference. As a result I invest in everything in my field. Notice that I said "invest", not "buy" or "spend". They are negative words. You have to train yourself to use language
that makes you act differently." - Alwyn Cosgrove

Want to get more out of your workout and spend less time in the gym? Many guys devote so many hours to lifting weight yet end up with so little to show for it. In many cases the problem is simple: they aren't doing exercises based on the movements their bodies were designed to do. Six basic movements - the squat, deadlift, lunge, push, pull and twist - use all of the body's major muscles.
In The New Rules of Lifting for Women, authors Lou Schuler, Cassandra Forsythe and Alwyn Cosgrove present a comprehensive strength, conditioning and nutrition plan destined to revolutionize the way women work out. All the latest studies prove that strength training, not aerobics, provides the key to losing fat and building a fit, strong body. This book refutes the misconception that women will "bulk up" if they lift heavy weights. Nonsense! It's tough enough for men to pack on muscle, and they have much more of the hormone necessary to build muscle: natural testosterone.
In The New Rules of Lifting for Abs, Schuler and Cosgrove deliver more than the standard bunches-of-crunches approach to abdominal training. Although building those ab muscles is important-no question-Schuler and Cosgrove also help you understand that doing so is useless in isolation. That's why The New Rules of Lifting for Abs offers a full-spectrum conditioning system designed to get you stronger, leaner, more muscular, and more athletic.
Today's exercising adults are caught in a bind: Those who take it seriously and work out aggressively can end up with chronic aches and injuries because they don't know how to adjust their programs as they get older. And those who take it easy may end up with overfed, underdeveloped, injury-prone bodies. Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove, fitness experts and authors of The New Rules of Lifting series, know all too well that these readers need a program of their own.
This supercharged new edition of The New Rules of Lifting features all-new workouts to build maximum muscle in both men and women. Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove’s The New Rules of Lifting, The New Rules of Lifting for Women, and The New Rules of Lifting for Abs have revolutionized how people lift weights.
