As 2010 is now here, I have several books on the proverbial wish list to purchase this year.

One of those – The Men’s Health Big Book of Exercises by Adam Campbell, MS, CSCS – I picked up yesterday. This book just came out and comes in both a men’s and women’s edition. (A quick look through – both appear nearly the same in terms of exercise selection although the tips vary from each book dependent upon the male and female population. You can’t go wrong with either. )

The book is chocked full with over 600 exercises. The exercises are laid out by muscle groups being targeted and is also laid out by progression as well.

The photography is really outstanding as each exercise is laid out in full color and is extremely easy to see how to perform. (By contrast, I perused several other exercise books yesterday just for comparison and the photography and exercise demonstration wasn’t even close). The exercises have tips on form and proper execution. There are additional tips that are sprinkled throughout this book in addition to other nuggets such as workout regimens, nutritional information, and more.

So if you are looking for a pretty exhaustive encyclopedia of exercises, this is a great resource to add to your professional library.
