Precise, yet easy-to-understand, strength-training guidelines and suggested programs for specific populations, including: sedentary, time-pressured, overweight, seniors, youth, cardiac rehab patients, wheelchair users, and more. This text is written for fitness professionals who want to reach and teach various populations of non-exercisers, but who don't have time to research and develop several group-specific strength-training programs. The programs presented in this text may be conducted with different types of resistance apparatus, including various brands of weightstack machines, air-pressure machines, hydraulic machines, electronic machines, barbells, dumbbells, elastic tubing, and even bodyweight.
