Reviewers Comments: The Power Up in 10 booklet describes 10 basic strength training exercises. Exercises do not need a lot of space to practice or require any expensive equipment. They can be done inside or outside and the only items needed are a water bottle, a towel and comfortable clothing.

The exercises included in the booklet are appropriate for all ages. Each has a Take it Further tip, using a water bottle, milk container or dumbbell, to accommodate those looking for a more strenuous workout. The exercises include detailed, easy to read instructions and photos of the exercises. Each also features a short nutrition tip. A blank calendar is included at the end of the booklet to help participants track their progress.

Nutrition educators could use this booklet as a guide when teaching physical activity to SNAP-Ed participants, or they could give it as an incentive to participants to use on their own. The printed book is spiral bound at the top and includes a folded cardboard in the back, which allows it to stand on its own.
