To personal trainers, another reference book.
For the lay person, this book is pretty fantastic. It's easy to follow as far as the verbage, however, I do believe that some of the exercises are a little beyond what most of the population can actually do. The instruction of each exercise wasn't too bad, however, with any exercise plan, please make sure you go to a physician and have him/her give you the "ok" to work out. Also, a lot of these exercises require your core to be stabilized, which means, keeping your spine neutral throughout, in other words, no hunching of the back ESPECIALLY when you're doing bent-over rows, or deadlifts, or any of the hip/knee dominant movements. Not necessary a beginners book, but for someone who has had some time working out, definitely would be a good book to refer to.

Great Book for Athletes
Whether you're a high school athlete looking for to better yourself and advance to the next level, a college athlete looking to move to the pros or a weekend warrior (me) looking to gain a competitive edge over your competition, then this book is for you. It is well-written and easy to understand, and has sample programs to follow. There is also a section on nutrition. This is definitely one of the best books I've read on sports performance training. If you fall into one of the above categories, or just want to look better, then I would highly recommend this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a guy who knows a lot about health and fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I must say that this is THE BEST book for real world exercise and strength conditioning. It will kick your butt, but it will give you the body and physical conditioning that you have always wanted. I can't say enough good about it.Was this review helpful?

Excellent Book for Athletes
I purchased this book in august, and started with the training and diet as outlined in the book. Extremely effective blend of functional core strength and power lifting techniques. The concept of training movements as opposed to body parts is paramount for top athletic performance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
