Overview

The ultimate training manual for beginning or returning exercisers

 

Drawing on the foundation of Men’s Health magazine, this superb guide explains everything that inexperienced or lapsed exercisers need to know to tailor a fitness program to their individual goals and abilities. The ability to personalize a workout plan allows readers to achieve quicker results and spend less time with ice packs and sore muscles.

Unlike other books that lump beginning exercisers into one group, this program differentiates among beginners, such as:

   • high-schoolers with newfound interest in lifting

   • 30-year-olds who want to get back the bodies they had when they played college sports

   • 50-year-olds who work out only for the first few weeks after New Year’s resolutions every January

Michael Mejia, contributing editor to Men’s Health magazine and coauthor of Scrawny to Brawny, thoroughly explains the fundamentals of fitness, including strength training, cardiovascular activity, and nutrition. He provides self-assessment tests to help safeguard against injuries by identifying muscular imbalances, decreased flexibility, or other weaknesses—and then shows how to correct these problems.

Whether readers are "Newbies," "Ex-jocks," or "Seasonals"; hope to build muscle or increase strength; are willing to work out every day or are able to spare only a couple of days a week, they will find the blueprint for their better body in this book.
