Over Analysis that is tough to apply
on November 2, 2004
I was very excited to buy this book because of Paul Chek's reputation as a top fitness expert. I also own his book "How to eat, move, and be healthy" which I have enjoyed. However,
This book is extremely disappointing. First of all, it is only 54 pages long, very short for the 24.95 price. It is less than 1/2 inch thick. Next, the book launches into highly complex language regarding concepts ranging from balance and reactions to open and closed chain exercises. Some of it can be understood, but most of it is so overly analytical it is hard to know how to apply it.
I was hoping this book would give me some clear information on how to improve my fitness routines and new concepts on how to exercise. However, it offers little or no diagrams of new exercises and only goes on and on with different scientific terms that are tough to memorize and tough to translate into your excercise program.
I am planning on returning this book to Amazon due to the reasons stated above. Do not waste your money on this book.
