The "Women's Health" Big Book of Exercises Paperback
Campbell is an industry leader in personal fitness advice.
This book is visually driven; the exercises are expertly photographed and displayed in color with callouts and directional arrows that instruct readers.
Exercises range from beginner to advanced. Unlike typical fitness book which offers 8-to-12-week plan, The Big Book of Exercises provides scores of workouts for dozens of different goals.
There's not a book that compares in pure number of exercises (over 600) and especially not one targeted to women.

Review by thewalkinggirl
I'm not a sports person or big into exercise, but I want to get stronger, so I appreciate how this provides not just pictorial explanations of how to do strengthening exercises, but also explains how to modify your workouts to get the results you want (and avoid boredom) along with specific workouts for different fitness levels and interests, from sports training to quick 15-minute workouts to prenatal programs. There are certain things that I think I'd still want a real human to help me with before trying, but most of them seem like something I can do. The nutrition and diet information contain pretty standard advice and reference which studies they pull their information from. Basically, it boils down to: get a good mix of protein, fat and vegetables; take it easy on the sugars, starches and dairy products; drink water.I can't say I've been terribly diligent about my strength building attempts so far, but I feel more confident about my ability to do so and am able to do things I couldn't do a year ago.
