Weight Training Without Injury: Over 350 Step-by-Step Pictures Including What Not to Do!
by Fred Stellabotte and Rachel Straub, MS, CSCS
ISBN: 978-0996263818: (softcover)
published by Regalis Publishing, 2016

The exercise will never hurt you — only improper form causes injury. Master the essentials of proper weight training and be safe while performing the squat, lunge, leg press, lat pulldown, reverse fly, bench press, chest fly, shoulder press, shoulder raise, biceps curl, triceps extension, plank, and more! Stellabotte and Straub's mission is simple: to enable you to master proper form and prevent injury when lifting weights. This book blends 50 years' experience and success with current scientific research (referencing 90+ peer-reviewed publications). In a clear, organized, easy-to-follow format.

“The attention to detail is unparalleled among other texts in the field. If you were going to read and use only one book on weight training, this would be it!” 
—Christopher M. Powers, PT, PhD, FACSM, FAPTA, Professor, USC Division of Biokinesiology & Physical Therapy

"I contacted Jill Ronsley as a potential editor for my book, seeking someone with experience in picture book design, as mine was extremely complicated. Jill was exceedingly thorough in describing the services she provides and accommodating of my schedule. Working with me for over 2 years, Jill guided me with everything from text editing to book interior design (with 370 photos of all shapes and sizes), cover work, selecting a printer, promotion, and finally to launch. Her work resulted in praise from experts in sports medicine, physical therapy, and professional bodybuilding. Regardless of your type of book, I assure you that if you choose Jill, she will far exceed your expectations as she has mine. She is honest, trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with. If I could award her a gold star, she would get 5!" —Rachel Straub, MS, CSCS

"Jill's editing added clarity and refinement to my book. I wasn't sure I needed an editor until she sent me the first edited pages; then it was obvious that her work would make the book much more readable. Jill's creativity in the interior and cover design, seen through her great feel for placing photos, illustrations and tables, had unparalleled professionalism.
