Review of "The Beginner's Guide to Bodybuilding"

The Beginner's Guide to Bodybuilding by Cameron Hall and James Surtees has two main parts: nutrition and exercise. In the nutrition section, the authors explain macronutrients, fluids, nutritional myths, and they share all different healthy recipes. In the exercise section, the authors cover the basics of working out, the proper way to workout, advantages and disadvantages of weightlifting, types of workout equipment, and bodybuilding tips and exercises. The authors developed a multilevel muscle building program that they share in this book. They also explain power lifting workouts, resistance cardio, and more.

All in all, the authors do a good job of staying on the topic of bodybuilding. The information is helpful, even for intermediate weightlifters. I enjoyed reading about new ideas and learning a different perspective on weightlifting. I can tell the authors are knowledgeable about bodybuilding. In general, I agree with most of the information the book provides which is accurate and sensible. Their muscle building program seems challenging for a beginner, but that's good, because the beginner will have room to improve.

I recommend this book to people interested in learning about bodybuilding. But it is not made for someone who has no knowledge of working out, because the person won't know some of the terms and exercises in the book.

If you like working out, this is a good book to add to your bookshelf of health and fitness books. You can get your copy here.
