It's unfortunate that people admit to not reading Hahn's book and still insist that 'this type of exercise doesn't work.' To bad these folks are to ignorant to give Slow Burn a try. This approach to exercise works, is efficient, and time saving. When you don't have 'all the time in the World' to hang out in a gym Slow Burn is an excellent resource to have to stay in shape.

When something works I say it is 'The Real Deal!'. Fred Hahn's book shows us his great philosophy in exercising for only 30 minutes a week. How do I know? Because I use this method at Fred's studio.

From the examples that I have seen it works, and it works well. By examples I mean people on the program. This program is like most any program, if you do it correctly it will work, if you do it according to your own methode you get disappointed. Sounds like the critics are gym owners or other 'professionals' whinning about loss of revenue. And they (or he posting multiple reviews) are so proud of their opposition to this poor excercise that they won't post their name. Whatever you choose, do it right, get instruction, and be consistant!

This is a great book and must have. Easy to read and easy to understand the fitness principles behind slow burn. It gives great insight on the methods behind slow burn and excellent examples on how to apply the slow burn method.

I am generally a skeptic when it comes to "breakthroughs" in anything. Before buying this book, I visited Serious Strength's website and looked through the free online materials. The program is all that it claims to be - a safe, effective, and efficient way to improve health, fitness and strength. There are no gimmicks or quick fixes. Follow the techniques outlined in this book and you will achieve results.

This book is incredible. If you are looking for a better way to exercise, and have been searching beyond the gym rats and club owner¿s viewpoint, this book will give you the knowledge that you so earnestly have sought out. When I "stumbled" upon the SuperSlow principles I was quickly drawn to this book. Upon obtaining this book I read it in one weekend, and couldn't wait to get back in the "gym" (and out in 30 minutes) with the "best" workout I ever experienced. To me the cost of the book and the time spent reading it has paid off 10,000-fold in time and health. What great satisfaction to understand one's body, and be proud of not wasting one's time.

I was disappointed by this book. I thought it would provide information that would enhance my workouts, but its main message is "slow down." The "revolution" is common knowledge in the fitness field. I don't recommend buying this book.

I really liked this book it helped me a lot and was very informative. I find out about books like these from a very cool fat burning newsletter that is free and filled with great tips. If you want to get the free newsletter just do a web search and type burn fat 8924561, you will see the newsletter web page come up....enjoy!!

A helpful book with an interesting take on the perceived benefits of known workout routines. It's clear; it's a fast read; and it conveys it's information in a friendly and personable way. Doctor recommended, too.

I used to be in the same boat, training 4 days per week, multiple sets per exercise, etc. However, once I was introduced to superslow, I learned 2 things: 1. Total muscular exhaustion feels amazing 2. Once a week is more than enough. I loved the feeling and the results so much I became a trainer. The claims made by this book are backed by 2 studies performed by doctor Wayne Wescott at the Springfield, Mass YMCA (feel free to look them up). Don't be confused, the intensity required for this program is beyond most standard programs, but the results speak for themselves. It's hard to understand how people can say SS is a crock when people continue to get results from using the method. This book is a great read, however I prefer 'The Power of 10' by Adam Zickerman.

My neighbor and I started this workout as soon as the book came out and I am in the best shape of my life. It is amazing that 30 to 40 minutes a week is all I need to get the most out of my workouts. But don't be fooled, it isn't easy. The workouts are very intense. I'd recommend a training partner for most people because it forces you to do your best and your partner can also help you time your workout and tell you if you're losing your form. Which is important especially near failure. When it's getting tough, and it will if you're doing the workout correctly, just remember that you only have to do this once a week.

Slow cadence resistance training is far and away the best exersize protocol ever developed, and Fred Hahn's book is a great introduction to the benefits of this exercise regimine. Slow Burn is far superior to Power of Ten. Hahn's book succeeds by giving the reader a well-researched and not overly technical redering of the subtleties of slow motion weight training. His book is an excellent introduction to this terrific exercise protocol.

A short time ago, I was a bit overweight, not feeling that great, and had both the need and desire to do something about it. I looked into quite a few books, but thought that this one looked well balanced and honest. Within a month, following the simple programs in the book, and including the nutrition, I¿ve not only lost weight, but, I've also built up my major muscle groups. To see these results myself, plus the reactions of those around me, at over 40 no less, is great! Enough said. If you follow the program, you will see results.

This book really is the ultimate in fitness. The language is straightforward, clear, and concise. I'm currently doing the Slow Burn Workout and I find it challenging and very effective. You don't need to use heavy weights as you just need to focus on proper form and "zoning in" on the muscle(s) you're working. You can almost feel your body taking shape as you progress through the workouts. Also, the descriptions and images of how to perform each exercise are very well done and help you focus on exactly what you need to do to maximize your efforts. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone looking to get into serious shape the right way. Many thanks to Mr. Hahn!

When you're 24yrs old and have chronic pain in your knees from runnning, it's time to look for something else. I get the same incredible High from this work-out and look forward to it twice a week. The mini-soreness I get everyday reminds me that muscle is being built and helps turn down chocolate chip cookies. I'm glad I found this so young. No more wasting time at the gym.

After two kids and a back injury, I had resigned myself to flab and frailty. The SlowBurn approach gives the reader convincing evidence of the benefits of strength training in boosting metabolism. Walking on a treadmill wasn't doing it for me. Within two weeks, my tight clothes were loose and I was bouncing up stairs, which had been difficult. The exercises are explained well, and the diet information is first rate!

After trying many different workout "schemes" with limited success, I bought this book and began doing SlowBurn workouts. I'm now only working out for only 30 minutes in the gym for each workout, and I'm stronger than I've ever been. I've never experienced progress like this before. The workouts aren't easy, but they're over quickly, and I'm able to spend more time with my family without feeling like I'm compromising my health and fitness.

From a very long time women were told that looking good was of utmost importance. This was without regard to health or fitness and how age affected these parameters. Witness the whalebone and other types of corsets, the spike heeled shoes and the numerous weight loss programs on the market (some of which are downright dangerous). Now there is a book that allows women of all ages to remain fit and healthy for a lifetime. I am certainly going to recommend this book to all the women I know.

What more do I say except, life has done to me what is does to many people. Ages you, puts a couple of pounds on you and makes you feel pains you haven't felt before. For the past 10 years I have had chronic back pain, which not only put a damper on my physical activites, but also made me think what everyone else usually does, "I need to see a doctor" Well, the doctor told me as he would anyone else, "loose weight" Eaiser said than done. I have tried several different workouot protocols, joined various gyms and even spent thousands of dollars on personal trainers over the years. All of which still left me in the same position as many people, many dollars poorer and still in pain. Till I came upon Serious Strength and Slow Burn. Where strength training not only provided relief of my aching back, but actually showed me a return on my effort in a safe and effective manner. Life is simple, you get out of it what you put into it. Thanks to Fred's book and workout program I have been able to enjoy life more without the constant aches of aging. Thanks again for changing my life!

I thought to myself 30 minutes a week, come on!! And would you know it, I have seen a vast improvement in not only my strength, but my energy, endurance as well as my ability to keep up with my active children. Since adhearing to Mr. Hahn's excersize methodology, now having those games of catch with my kids won't leave me useless afterwards!!!

There's nothing new here folks. Super Slow weight lifting has been around for decades. It's just a slow motion version of High Intensity Training (HIT). There's nothing 'revolutionary' about it at all. The book is full of hype about how slow lifting is safer and more productive than other forms of weight lifting, and is the only form of exercise you need. The problem is that none of these claims can be substantiated. There's no research to back them up. The authors even claim that many other forms of popular exercise are dangerous and should not be done. All of this is straight out of Hutchins book and just does not bear close scrutiny at all. You can hurt yourself doing anything, even super slow weight lifting, and it's just wrong to try to convince people that the aerobic exercise they've been getting is harmful to them and could be replaced by weight training once a week for 20 -30 minutes. I found the claim that you should not sweat when lifting weights to be very amusing. In short, if you want to give this a try go ahead, but I and lots of people I know found it to be relatively unproductive and quite tedious. Weight training should be fun and enjoyable, and this is anything but.

Without a trainer, you'd never get the form down so you could work out once a week from this book. Once a week slow motion workouts only work with absolute, meticulous attention to every element of form in each rep, and with real intensity. It makes sense--if you're just going to work out 15 minutes a week, every second has to be done right. I bought the other new Slow Motion book, too. Power of 10. I found they took the time to explain every single step. And it was much easier to follow, not boring. You can tell the author was involved. I think the diet doctors must've written this one.

The claims that a slow-burn increases metabolism and fights osteoperosis are not backed up by scientific fact. Also, the idea that one 30-minute workout once a week is better than regular, standard lifting also is not proven. The problem with these books is two-fold: a. they take a theory already out there and present it as a 'revolution', and b. the author becomes the sole authority on whether it works or not. There is just no study that can be shown that slow-burn works the way the adherents say it does. And, there is at least one study that shows it doesn't. When confronted with that evidence, the authors and proponents of slow-burn will say, 'well, I just KNOW it works better'.
