My after reading review (February 14, 2021):- Nowadays people are more obsessed with six-pack abs to look better. But I might like to say that abdominal and core training exercises are not only to build six-pack abs. It has other benefits too, such as - 

  1. To get six-pack abs
  2. To get slimmer waist
  3. To maintain cardiovascular health and fitness
  4. To increase athletic performance

I am into sports and also interested in bodybuilding too. So I have all four reasons to do core exercises. 

Building six-pack abs is not easy, especially if you have belly fat. You need to take care of special exercises designed only for core muscles. That’s why I bought this book apart from other whole body exercise books I have. Delavier’s Anatomy books are great and this "Delavier's Core Training Anatomy" is no exception. The book is divided into three different parts - 

  • The factors to get great results
  • Core muscles exercises
  • Workout programs for abdominal and core muscles

Again exercises are divided into three different parts according to the three different major abdominal muscle groups - 

  1. Upper abdominal muscles
  2. Lower abdominal muscles
  3. Obliques

Though the book doesn’t content all the possible abs exercises. So many exercises are out there that I do regularly are not included here. The book just focuses on main main core exercises. But still it’s impressive. It’s a great book for anyone whoever wants to build their abs and improve core muscles.
