I received a pre released copy of this book for review purposes. All comments and opinions are mine. I'm a guy who within the last few years have went from 255lbs to 180lbs. I was so proud of myself. Then, I got sick and found out I have severe nerve damage. I couldn't work out anymore. I got depressed, gained all the weight back and then some. All the way up to 277lbs. I get injections, epidurals, and have had radio frequency treatment as well as rhizotomomy treatment. As I was about to give up on my dreams of being able to weightlifting again, the Dr gave me the ok to begin again. At the same time, I came across the opportunity to read 51 Days, No Excuses by Rich Gaspari prelaunch so I could review the book and begin to use the information contained within to help me reach my goal. I have a fair amount of knowledge about health and fitness, and also know quite well who Rich Gaspari. For those that do not, Rich is a bodybuilding legend. He competed against men who outweighed him and had far better genetics. He didn't only compete against them, he beat them. He did this by refusing to make excuses, and never give up. An attitude you will pick up on in this book. An attitude Rich drives into your mind, forcing you to believe in yourself. This book is not just an exercise book, not just a book of inspiration; although it contains tons of inspirational real stories about Rich's rise and fall, and rise again life. From his greatest moments, to his worst; it's all in this book. You have workouts, inspiration, diets, and straight forward motivation.. From beginner, all the way to professional; I believe this book has something for everyone. I am using the approach Rich has given me in this book to change my entire life. I am using his no excuses outlook as part of my daily routine.Read more ›

For years I have struggled to really regain my health, toyed with various eating disorders, always losing hope. This book was an inspiration. What Rich Gaspari was able to accomplish, over 40, and in only 51 days was truly incredible. Additionally, as an entrepreneur, I found inspiration in Rich's stories of perseverance and determination to succeed. Anytime I was feeling down, upset, or discouraged, I read a chapter of this book, and realized that there could be amazing success through trials and tribulation. The business he has built and the people he has inspired, make Rich Gaspari not only a legendary bodybuilder, but a legendary business man and human being. Additionally, I loved doing the workouts in the book, they are challenging, and have pushed my fitness to a peak level. I can't do the diet because I am dieting, but I have used a lot of the meals as samples for my diet. This book, was incredible both for the fitness aspects, but more importantly for the life lessons that will inspire you to do anything, and become your best self with No Excuses!

Very impressed. Not your typical "do 50 jumping jacks and eat tofu" to get healthy book. Rich Gaspari puts out specific details to help you get the look you've always wanted and yet somehow makes it easy to follow with clear and understandable steps. BONUS: this book is also in a sense an autobiography weaved into a fitness book. Highly recommended for its inspirational component as well. I didn't realize that he had bounced back from bankruptcy to start one of the biggest supplement companies currently in the business. No matter what area in life you are struggling with this book will encourage you to get up off your ass and do something to succeed in life.

51 Days No Excuses is not like your traditional training guides that just offers you a generic training split and just a list of food recommendations, but rather In 51 days: No Excuses Rich will be your training coach; breaking down exactly what you will do for the day giving you his own tried training routine that worked for him that got him back to competition. The book is well balanced you will first be getting first hand life experiences from Rich how he fought through curve balls that life can throw at you, but how you can still stay focused and push through (Truly Inspirational stuff) He will definitely put you in the right mindset!!
Then comes the training split for the day along with a detailed break down of your meals.
He also throws in
-Creative Recipes that you can try, for ex: Delicious protein muffins, shakes etc. -Training tips: How to change things up in the gym (different tempos and Mind-muscle connection)
Overall, I TRULY do recommend 51 Days: No excuses to everyone!!! as it can relate to anyone whether one classifies themselves as just a "Casual" lifter or a "Hardcore" lifter this book is for YOU DON'T MISS OUT
