The pros: I was right -- this book is exactly what I needed. The exercises are like hardcore versions of the ones I learned in PT. They target just the right body parts and after doing them just a couple times, I notice a difference in the way my hips and legs feel during a run. None of the exercises require any equipment, and they give you a good workout. Though there's not a whole lot of cardio involved (there is some -- mostly jumping exercises), I am drenched in sweat by the time I finish. The background story Jay gives of his life and how he ended up coming up with this program is entertaining and easy to read, and his tone is motivational with out being overly peppy or annoying.
The cons: Let me say up front that I am not the most coordinated person on the block -- I usually need a couple times of watching an exercise video before I get the steps down and I've given up on anything that requires complicated footwork (like Tae Bo) because I'm just too klutzy.Read more ›
Then Jay delivers his 4 x 4 program. This can all be squeezed into a 4 foot by 4 foot space without any tools other than your own body. The program is divided into standing, on all fours, and inverted on all fours. I fully agree that if an individual can complete the entire program, over time he/she will improve their physical fitness and their appearance. I think many computer jockeys without previous work out or Yoga experience would be hard put to perform at least a quarter of the exercises. For instance, positioning one self on hands and knees, thread one leg cross under the body and then up, twisting the body, so that one arm and the belly button now point to the sky while maintaining the posture on one leg and one arm. Yes, Jay admits his program owes much to Yoga traditions. The exercise directions when aligned with the pictures are simple enough and fairly easily followed. The entire program is a good core program and will improve posture and stability of any person.Read more ›
