This is a good book and exercise program but compared to some of the other bodyweight exercise books out there, it's a little lacking.

First let's address the subtitle. Another reviewer mentioned this but it's worth repeating. The subtitle clearly reads "Weight-Free Workouts". So, the reader automatically assumes that they won't need any resistance equipment for the workouts. However, a good portion of the exercises require the use of dumbbells or resistance tubing / bands. Now, there is nothing wrong with the use of dumbbells or bands, but that is obviously not "weight free". The subtitle should actually read "Minimal Equipment Workouts". With this in mind readers should be aware that they will need adjustable dumbbells or a variety of resistance tubing in order to follow the workouts as outlined.

The workouts are based around the typical bodybuilding split. That is working each bodypart once per day or pairing them up depending on the number of days you choose to workout. Personally I am not a fan of only working each bodypart only once per week or even twice, especially with bodyweight exercises. However, that doesn't make it a bad workout. it may work great for some.

There is a good list of exercises and brief descriptions of each.

There is also a small section on nutrition. Nothing unusual or great. Just your standard carb emphasis. He also includes a section in the back that includes recipes. Personally I could do without this. Recipes include oatmeal cookies, and even hardboiled eggs(which most don't need a recipe for).

There is also a section on supplements. While the author does say that supplements aren't needed, he goes on to recommend some of the pricier supplements like Whey and Creatine. Again, I could do without this section.

"Gym-Free and Ripped: Weight Free Workouts That Build and Sculpt" is a medium paperback sized book on improving your body and your health. The beginning of the book starts with having a proper attitude and encouraging a healthy lifestyle, which includes nutrition.

Basically, this book tells you how to work out at home, at the beach or at any large area. You need at least dumbbells and a tube (stretch cord) for some exercises. You may also want a large Swiss ball. If you don't have equipment, there are exercises in which you use your own bodyweight, including push ups, dips, and leg exercises.

There are also sections on stretching and cardio. At the end, there is an 8 week workout program, along with information on supplements and food recipes.

Consider this book a short miniguide and a fairly quick read. All photos are in black and white, with the author, Mr. Nathan Jendrick, demonstrating the exercises.

I'm someone who really detests everything about gyms. I hate the commute. I hate the equipment that looks like it's never been cleaned. I hate the inevitable long wait for equipment if you don't go during off-peak times. Most of all, I absolutely detest the expense and the fifty hoops you have to jump through to cancel your membership. My recent "ex" participated in predatory business practices that rival multinational corporations.

It's enough to make you wonder how people stayed fit before gyms. Even possible?

Mr. Jendrick answers "YES!" to this question for about a third or less than what you'd pay for a gym membership each month.

I've been using the book since I got it the day before the release date (Thanks, Amazon Prime!) and already have started to feel lighter on my feet as I benefit from the clear writing, illuminating photos, and even the nutrition hints.

...and all this despite my increasingly heavy wallet from saving on a gym membership every month. Bravo, Nathan!

This book has so many tips get ripped without the hassle of the gym. The workouts mainly use the weight of your own body, but their are a few that recommend using dumbbells, cords, or an exercise ball. The beginning is filled with ideas to improve your diet so that can get the body you always wanted. Then it goes in to a collection of exercises that can help tone and build each of the six main muscle groups (it even segregates all the exercises so that you know which ones effect which muscle groups). At the end there is a small section about supplements and how to use each of them. I did make the mistake of trying it on my Kindle... It wasn't a sloppy version, it is just that to best utilize the book you need to be able to flip through some of it quickly, which you can not do on the Kindle.

I am a competitive swimmer so I get my cardio in the pool but I needed something to increase my dry land training. This book has done it. I love the workouts in the back that make me do a certain exercise (I'm so bad at making up my own workout at home). The recipes are great as well. Even my picky husband is enjoying eat them. I'm not ripped but I do feel the workout the next day.

It is impressive to see a book that is so complete, well illustrated and concise at the same time. Everything you need is there so it is your choice to spend money in other stuff but you could be surprised by this one!
