Dr. Franco Columbu, internationally known bodybuilding champion, has written a book that provides a commonsense approach to this much-misunderstood sport. He discusses in detail such diverse aspects as nutrition, attitude, and actual physique-contest preparation, along with complete bodybuilding programs at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.
Exercises to develop every major muscle group in the body are described and illustrated (in sixty-five stunning black-and-white high-definition photographs). Columbu includes the why as well as the how of these championship techniques, points out common mistakes and misconceptions, and offers' practical advice to potential bodybuilders on training for personal rather than contest purposes.
For bodybuilders at every level of achievement, for athletes of every persuasion, and for all people interested in the science of the body in action and the art of the body in repose, Winning Bodybuilding shows that bodybuilding is the ultimate challenge in athletics.
