Great workout book for the non-beginner
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2016
This is the perfect workout book if you already have a comfort level with working out, so you don't need or want to buy a book that spends half the pages telling you why you should work out; and if you have some familiarity with exercises so you don't need to look up each exercise. If you are looking for preplanned workouts that you can just jump into and do--this is the book for you. This book basically just launches right into the workouts with the briefest of introductions--which I really loved. The exercises are illustrated in the back in alphabetical order, so if you aren't sure what something is, it only takes about 10 seconds to flip to the right page and see what it is. The workouts keep it interesting with a good mix of stretching, strength, HIIT/cardio, core, and the workouts have a nice flow to them. I really like the approach he takes -- sets are based on time not reps. So you do a minute of squats, for example, instead of 15 reps. I have meniscus and rotator cuff injuries, and have spent a lot of time and energy in physical therapy for both, so I also really appreciate that the exercises are precise and the workouts are focused on full body health. I've been able to do the workouts without any issues. (I have done P90x and some others in that style of training, and ended up really exacerbating my injuries.) I also like that he details out how long the workouts will take, so you know what you are getting into and if you have time for that particular workout.
