Both strength training and weight training are recognized by the American College of Sports Medicine as vital to a high quality of life. They are also of tremendous benefit to young, healthy adults and adults with or at risk for osteoporosis. Most information on nutrition and strength athletes, however, is scattered throughout pamphlet-type publications and magazines and tends to be written by individuals with little or no professional training in the field of nutrition.

Nutrition and the Strength Athlete is an authoritative, scientifically based text that addresses virtually every aspect of nutrition as it pertains to the strength athlete. The book begins with an extensive review of the parameters defining resistance training. Subsequent chapters cover areas of interest to those who participate in resistance training, such as energy-yielding nutrients, vitamins and minerals, dietary supplements, hormones, hydration, and nutritional considerations to support the immune system . The book concludes with nutritional concerns for women who resistance train and strength athletes who play tennis.
