Where can I learn about strength training exercises?

The best place in my opinion to learn about strength training exercise will be from a certified professional.  Be sure this professional has a certification from an accredited program and/or has a degree in the field.  The internet is another source but everyone has access to the internet so you should be careful as to what advice you choose to follow.

A good book on strength training exercises should give you the information you need to open a meaningful dialogue with your physician, physical therapist, and/or trainer. By having a basic understanding of the principles involved in strength training and some core exercises, you can engage your doctor and/or trainer much more easily in a discussion of what exercises are right for you.
