Toning Your Core With Bells & Bars contains 14 exercises that tone, shape, and sculpt the core and torso, including the chest and back. Using free-weight equipment—dumbbells and barbells—that you most likely have access to either at home or in a gym, you can easily learn the safe way to optimize muscle shape and symmetry.
Since free weights are adaptable to just about every body type, this mini e-book will help you get a great workout by allowing you to use the exercises as part of your overall strength training plan.
Toning Your Core With Bells & Bars is an abridged version of Brad Schoenfeld's best-selling Women's Home Workout Bible (Human Kinetics, 2010), which makes sense of home-based workouts by covering fitness routines for every training style, budget, and home space.
