Overview

One of the nation’s elite strength and conditioning coaches presents a unique training program designed to help men achieve functional strength and muscular balance throughout their bodies

For decades, the conventional measure of an individual’s strength was the amount of weight he could bench press. Now, that measure is being challenged by expert trainers like Robert dos Remedios who argue that the variety of movement patterns used in functional training is the real key to getting bigger, stronger, and more powerful. In Men's Health Power Training, this acclaimed collegiate strength and conditioning coach describes in detail the methods he has used to develop hundreds of Division I scholarship athletes, including several current NFL players.

The key features that make this book a standout in the fitness field include:

• exercises geared toward functional strength that can be utilized in real-world situations, from playing sports to lifting furniture

• training sessions that are short, intense, and highly effective

• compound, multijoint exercises that replace the less-effective isolation exercises found in many fitness books

• no-nonsense dietary information utilizing a new and innovative food pyramid developed by the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition that will optimize strength gains, recovery, and physical progress

    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!

    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.

    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.
