It contains an extensive reference section on "The Behavioral and Psychological Aspects of Weight Training;" success stories of those who lifted weights in prison, improved their lives and were released, and much more. Links are made to other weight lifting, prison and legislative sites on the Internet. For those desiring more information about prison recreation, information is provided about the National Correctional Recreation Association.
