In my recent quest for fitness books to quench my appetite for fitness "everything," I came upon "Get-Fit Guy's Secrets to a Better Workout" by Ben Greenfield. I give this book five stars for two reasons: the author has higher education in a fitness-related field and has experience to back it up, and the book is well-written, informative, and enjoyable to read.
It provides a thorough explanation about warming up before a workout and cooling down afterwards. Then he goes into how to know if you're working out at the right intensity. Other topics he covers include: why you might not be losing weight, how to measure body fat, how to build muscle, what is proper gym etiquette, how to get better results from weightlifting, and he also shares motivation tips.
What's great about this book is the author often backs up in factual terms the claims he makes, so you know his advice is sound. And he explains everything thoroughly, so you will completely understand him.
I highly recommend this concise guide for every fitness enthusiast. It is a must-read for health-conscious individuals.
