    Great Book

    Stephen Cabral has put together a definitive guide to fitness from diet to exercise. The fact that each week is broken out into only three workouts of 30-45 minutes is perfect for anyone that is not a gym rat and wants a quick effective workout. Each training section is just six weeks of highly functional and ever-changing and this will keep the workouts from becoming stale and boring. I did the first workout this morning and look forward to the rest of the year.

    Good book

    Stephen Cabral wrote an insightful book in A Man's Guide to Muscle and Strength. This book is filled with pictures and tables. Cabral breaks down each exercise and each chapter by difficulty so that you don't need to be an Arnold Swarzenegger wannabe in order to workout and gain muscle.
