Overview


A customizable fitness program created for middle aged adults who want to lose weight, revitalize energy, and build habits for increased longevity.

Today’s exercising adults are caught in a bind: Those who take it seriously and work out aggressively can end up with chronic aches and injuries because they don’t know how to adjust their programs as they get older. And those who take it easy may end up with overfed, underdeveloped, injury-prone bodies.

Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove, fitness experts and authors of The New Rules of Lifting series, know all too well that these readers need a program of their own. That’s because they are just like these readers. So they set out to create a new template for exercise, one that delivers real results but is flexible enough to accommodate individual limitations.

The New Rules of Lifting for Life offers a six-month plan that integrates total-body strength, endurance, mobility, balance, coordination, and athleticism. The workouts are challenging and, in conjunction with the suggested diet modifications, will help readers change the way their bodies look, feel, and perform. And not just temporarily— The New Rules of Lifting for Life will allow you to enjoy productive and pain-free workouts for many years to come.

    Worthless sample.

    With ebook samples, especially for books such as this one, I personally would like to see how the ebook is laid out in the text of the book, not just the title page and acknowledgements.

    For the middle-age beginner crowd, this is a good read if you're looking to get in shape.  It's full of up-to-date information that is easy to understand, and for the complete newbie (just starting out in fitness), the book gives you the exercises  and their descriptions, and fills in the blanks for you of how to design the program (in fact, you don't even have to design it - it's already done for you). And, for those who are not complete newbies, it's a good book to reference if you're looking for a new workout for the next 6 - 12 weeks. I definitely recommend this book.
