I won this book in a giveaway. First of all, I'm super sore! I was familiar with many of the exercises in this book, but was able to try out some new ones as well. I learned new things about the exercises I have been doing for years. This book is beautifully illustrated and gives excellent information about each exercise. I can do most recommended activities in my own home with no special equipment.
I especially liked that there were difficulty ratings and modifications on each exercise so that I could adjust accordingly based on my own fitness level. I love anatomy and learning new exercises, so this book was great!
This is a great book teaching to do the basic exercises properly. The illustrations are great about which exercise work which muscles. The exercises range from basic to advance.
There is a meter at the top saying what lever the exercise is supposed to be set for. One of the misconceptions I want to clear up. Yes we can all do press up, however as the author states there are dozens of variations of press up, a change as slight as changing from normal to knuckle press ups work different muscles.
In this book Brent does give different variations (not every variant) ranging from popular to challenging. He does give a breakdown of how to work your way up to the Handstand press up by doing less challenging variants to strengthen muscles needed to pull the Handstand press up off.
There are a lot of great tips like this to make body weight training more challenging either through repetitions, intensity, or by stringing different excises together. He does give his advice into creating a personal training program, what to look for and what to try to avoid.
Then he talks about exercises he recommends that work well together or complement each other; especially in the total body workout section. The largest section of the book is devoted to legs which does make sense as they are the biggest, and a core muscle groups; also in keeping with his reputation as the 'Glutes guy'. He does talk about the whole leg including the calf muscles, to the Glutes and everything in between. He does mention about joint safety and personal differences in body types and genetics. He talk about safety being first, but he does also recommend many exercises where people pull ups under tables or door frames.
Maybe there are studier tables in America, but these exercise do not really appeal to me personally. I would recommend getting a pull up bar rather than this.
I fairness he do say this as well if you are not happy with the sturdiness for the equipment you are using. This book is great for anyone looking to train from home, if you are a specialised athlete and looking for a book improve you particular discipline this is probably not the best book, except learning through the illustrations to target specific muscles groups you might want to improve on. Having said that a number of gyms I have been in recent have been setting aside larger areas for functional or bodyweight training, so the information in this is useful.
I would mainly recommend this book for people like me who do not have as much time as we used to get to the gym and want to train from home, or people who want to improve their personal and functional fitness.
