The Women’s Weight Training Workout for Shaping Perfect Proportions

An eagle eyed co-worker found this one for me and we both started laughing at the hair. I think this is probably one of the best examples of hair styles from the 80s ever featured on this site. (There are plenty of contenders, however!) Again, we have some precarious exercise clothes that make me want to say make sure you are current on your bikini waxes. Yikes! I just can’t imagine prancing around the gym in this get up.

As a library book, though, this isn’t that bad. It is mostly demos of weight training that would be done at any gym. It is outdated and there are probably better choices. For collection development purposes, I would still put exercise and fitness under the same criteria as health books and probably weed after a few years.  So, enjoy the pictures and feel that burn!
