Principles of Muscle Building Program Design is not just another book on weight training or an off-the-shelf exercise plan to follow.

Most training books lack two critical elements of value to anyone who really wants to educate themselves on how to train effectively, especially women – an explanation of why something works, and equip the reader with the ability to adapt their training programs to suit their very specific and individual needs.

This is where Muscle Building Program Design succeeds where most standard how-to guides fail.

It delves deeper and shares with the reader a unique combination of research, experience and results that goes into an intelligently-designed resistance training program from one of the world’s leading personal trainers.

It goes back to basics in order to give the best possible foundation to learn the art and science of resistance training, get the maximum benefit from your workouts and see tangible results that elude 99% of women who go to the gym.

The book pulls no punches – you will be required to think for yourself, but the reward is gaining the lifelong knowledge and skills to be able to create your own very training programs.

Putting it simply, Lou and Alwyn do a phenomenal job with this one. The first thing they do great is starting to break down all of the BS myths and misconceptions that women have been told, continue to tell each other, and themselves when it comes working out.
