Overview

A strong, athletic physique, highlighted by a flat midsection with well-defined abdominal muscles, is the goal of everyone who works out, from lifelong gym rats to the New Year's resolution crowd. But most people who seek these goals undermine their efforts. In The New Rules of Lifting for Abs, Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove offer unique programs based on the latest breakthroughs in exercise science. And, as they did in their previous books, The New Rules of Lifting and The New Rules of Lifting for Women, the authors debunk ab-training myths while showing readers how to strip off even the most stubborn flab. Surprising revelations include: Washboard abs do not always equal a healthy, pain-free back The crunch is actually a poor choice for most people Extending the core can be much more effective than flexing ab muscles It's impossible to isolate the core muscles And much, much more Readers get three months of intense workouts, combining fat-busting conditioning work with intense strength training, which they can easily expand into a yearlong program. Schuler and Cosgrove also include a nutrition component detailing how to eat for fat loss, muscle gain, and improved health. Home-gym friendly, and illustrated with more than 150 black-and-white photographs, The New Rules of Lifting for Abs delivers the goods.

Also suggest "Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis".

I have been doing the first stage for longer than planned but it has taken me extra time to achieve the recommended levels. I can notice the difference and so can the other guy that has been doing the routine with me. I think it is working great for us.

I've used this book, and the workouts in it for over FOUR YEARS, and haven't looked at any other workout since. This book is GREAT for those who don't know much about lifting and just want a basic, quick, introductory-level guide. I've had fantastic results working out just once to twice a week. Book discusses the basic principles of working out for men, including: -How to make your workouts as efficient as possible -What exercises are best for men, depending on age -How to pair your workouts with "clean eating" -Contains several workouts to choose from, depending on your age, relative fitness and goals, including break-in workout (for those who haven't liften in some time), fat loss, strength and hypertrophy (bulking up).

Alwyn is an awesome trainer and is always ahead of the curve. Finally, a book that shows the average gym rat what true core training is all about. People read this and stop the countless reps of spinal flexion 'sit-ups'.
