Looking for my Weight Lifting Book?

I also have a weight lifting guide publish on Amazon as an EBOOK.  

My guide is intended to teach beginner’s how to use basic machines, free weight exercises, and cable machines.  I also include a ton of visuals and detailed descriptions for each exercise.

The book is 50 pages and also includes details on how to warm up, foam roll, and cool down effectively.

The guideline of the book is structured as a 6 week learn to lift weights program where I walk you through exactly what to do over 6 weeks to teach yourself the basic lifts.  It was designed as part of the Women Weight Lifting class I run at the YWCA Health and Fitness Centre.  I decided to publish the book online for any of my blog readers who don’t live in Vancouver and can’t get access to the information.

I talk about breathing properly, form and technique, getting the most from your workout, and how to structure your program once you are done the 6 week learning to lift phase.

Here is the link to the book, which I am selling for $9.99.
