Overview

Get fit like 50 Cent: The phenomenally fit superstar rapper reveals his strategic six-week workout plan for achieving a ripped body—and developing the mental toughness to stay in shape for a lifetime.

Survival is a recurring theme of 50 Cent’s lyrics, and his life. That’s why, with obesity rates soaring and fitness levels declining, he wants to give everyone an all-access pass to his premium plan for lifelong fitness. In Formula 50, the mega-successful entertainer and entrepreneur unleashes the power of metabolic resistance training (MRT), the key ingredient that has helped him achieve the famously buff physique that makes his music videos sizzle.

Through MRT, 50 Cent’s fitness plan breaks down the barriers between traditional weight training and cardio workouts, accelerating fat loss while building muscle and improving overall fitness. Designed for a six-week rollout for total mind-body transformation, the Formula 50 regimen builds willpower while it builds physical power. In addition to motivation, nutrition is another key element; readers will discover the unique dietary combinations that fuel 50 Cent’s workouts. Coauthored with Jeff O’Connell, health journalist and editor-in-chief at Bodybuilding.com (the world’s largest fitness website), the book delivers a payoff that goes beyond six-pack abs and flab-free pecs: This is a fitness plan that boosts energy, endurance, flexibility, and mobility. The result is a body you’ve always dreamed of—and the mindset to attain the rest of your dreams.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A fair amount of celebrity-inspired exercise books are published each year, and here rapper, entrepreneur, and actor 50 Cent collaborates with fitness writer O’Connell (Sugar Nation: The Hidden Truth Behind America’s Deadliest Habit and the Simple Way To Beat It) to develop a six-week, structurally sound workout program and nutritional resource for his fans and readers. Motivating people to work out is an exceptionally hard thing to do and creating a workout protocol that propels readers to this goal is even harder. No workout book will satisfy everyone’s needs, but this one provides a good array of inspiring and achievable routines for individuals that have some experience with the recommended exercises (not to mention access to some of the equipment seen in photos) and appropriate fitness level to perform the interval training tempos. Beginners might risk injury to themselves. This resource is suitable for people that want to move beyond a simple start-up workout and nutritional regimen.

Verdict A well-arranged resource that motivates intermediate fitness enthusiasts to exercise and coordinate their nutritional plans; appropriate for all fitness-oriented collections.—John N. Jax, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., La Crosse
