This book put me into great shape after just a couple months of use.
Andrew
Another great thing about this book is that the training is broken down into four 13 week phases, each with a specific goal.

If you want to be as fit as a Navy Seal or look like one then Stew Smith's books are for you!

This is the best all around fitness guide that I have ever seen or used. Unlike other similar (Navy SEAL workout) books, this book goes well beyond the BUD/S warning order that is freely available on the internet. The best part of the book is the detailed weekly workout charts, which start off really slow which is good if you are out of shape (like I was).
The only drawback of this book that the workouts can be a little confusing, and it doesn't seem like a lot of effort was put into making the instructions easy to understand (I think another reviewer mentioned this). It is particularly unclear when it is appropriate to take rest between exercises. However, if you use some common sense, these problems are easily overcome.
Another great thing about this book is that the training is broken down into four 13 week phases, each with a specific goal.
1st Phase - general fitness
2nd Phase - mostly cardio and endurance (run/swim/bike)
3rd Phase - weights, PT, and cardio mix
4th Phase - mostly strength training
After completing the entire program, you can go back and concentrate on the phase that best suits your goals. Overall this is the best overall fitness book I've ever used, and the LAST one I'll buy for a long time.

This is definitely a great book. I have workout books, which includes the marine corps 3x fitness program, but I've never had another book like this one. This one has it all. Variety, Almost every workout, if not all of them, is different, except when it tells you to repeat previous days (which is very rare). So, you won't get bored with this book. Good illustrations, the pictures in this book are perfect. They couldn't get any better, the paper is nice which makes quality photos. Hard, this is probably the hardest workout program ever. At least out of all the ones I've tried. As the weeks go on, the trials get harder and harder, until the 13th week which is the final test for the 13 week programs. There are 4 programs. They are each 13 weeks long equalling a 52 week workout plan, 1. Calisthenic Base Cycle (no weights), 2. Hardcore PT (Physical Training) Running, Swimming, Biking, 3. Weights/PT/Cardio mix, 4. And the loading phase which is hardcore weight lifting. This book is for everyone, Men, Women, and Teens. This book is also very explanatory. It shows and tells you everything you need to know (how do do certain excercises and stretches, how to go about the order of events in a workout, etc.) This book also has a section on nutrition. It has everything from vitamin descriptions to the foods to eat to get the vitamins you need. This also includes weight loss. Now, that I've got you totally believing that this is the book for you, here's the letdown. You have to be in at least decent shape to be able to do this book. You can be the judge on that. I recommend doing a lot or stretching. Stretching helps the muscles with their every function. So before this books arrives at your house, stretch for 30 minutes a day to get your muscles used to it.Read more ›

An EXCELLENT fitness work! REVOLUTIONARY, Must Have!!!
This book is designed for ANY person of ANY athletic ability including FEMALES that want to be in the best overall shape possible. Whether you are a lifter, runner, swimmer, cyclist, PT-er, or neither you will gain valuable insight into your field and into the benefits of CROSS TRAINING. It is a scientific and fun 52-week program that will allow you to be as fit as a Navy SEAL and revolutionize your understanding of fitness. These are the same workouts that he used to train candidates who successfully completed Navy SEAL training.
The workouts and techniques can be modified to your level, even if you cannot do a single pushup, pullup, or dip. However, it can also be more challenging than Mr. Smith's 12 week Navy SEAL workout. MALE or FEMALE, this will allow you to perform several pullups or complete a TRIATHLON. I definately recommend purchasing this book if you are interested in being seriously fit and looking good.
I have seen dramatic results both in myself and in many other people.
Good Luck!

Not a lot of books of this topic dare to start off by giving you the bottom-line facts: if you decide you want to be as fit as you can be, you will work for it. The book is deprived of any sales-talk or hype/false promises. Rather it gives an insight in what it takes to complete the loop to maximize your work outs, and become fit beyond your belief. This no-BS approach works, and is a hell of a lot more credible than some of the other publications out there (like "Body for Life"). The exercises are basic, but with some good variations. Some small programs especially for when traveling, or when low on time to do a full work out. The nutricion chapter has an interesting section on vitamins and minerals, though an improvement may be to explain how some combinations need to be made to counter some effects. Like fiber takes out calcium, so when eating fiber it is best to do so with calcium enriched milk; info like this can help the athlete to better compose their meals.
My introduction to Stewart Smith was his 12 week program for BUDS, which I completed. During which I found out more about my body and mind and their capacities, then during the 15 years of sports and training I've done prior. Stew simply changed my life. His book can help you build up to this 12-week program, and/or help you sustain the stamina level acheived by it. Okay: it will not make you bulky and buff, and truth granted: in my gym there are guys with a more impressive frame than mine. But can they do 5 sets of 100 push ups, followed 5 sets of 50 pull ups, with a 1 minute pause in between, and then run 10 miles in an hour? I never get them to take up the challenge...
If you are ready to take up the challenge of dedication and focus, within a year of your time, you will not recognize yourself anymore, and everyday you will be amazed on how much stamina, strength and determination you have! Change your life, let Stew be the guide.
