A Woman's Book of Strength

Exercises, routines and motivation. Andes provides a biomechanics perspective - lines across photographs show proper body alignment, gravitational forces, and path of dumbbells during each exercise - with poetic and spiritual reflections. One of my favorite sections is one in which she matches exercise forms with the elements of the four directions - iron with the earth, for example. Great instructional gift for the beginning to intermediate weightlifter; essays are nourishing food for thought for any level of interest or training.
