Internet Assignment
There is a lot of information about strength training available to you in books, videos and
on the internet. As with most topics, some of the information is contradictory, some is based on
scientific research and some is not. You need to be able to distinguish what you believe is
correct or appropriate for you. One website I believe to be excellent is www.exrx.net .

will e-mail it to me at [email protected]
