About the Author

Patrick Barrett has been interested in exercise ever since he started to lift weights with his dad and older brothers as a kid. He participated in a half-dozen organized sports (most notably inline hockey and high school wrestling) until a neck injury during a wrestling match in his junior year prevented him from playing further in any contact sports. After the injury, he developed an interest in pursuing strength and balance, particularly through bodyweight and self-taught gymnastic-type exercises. Patrick has always loved both cooking and eating food. Unsatisfied with the confusing and often contradictory nutritional advice offered by mainstream sources, Patrick searched for another way to understand human nutrition that was logical, consistent, and effective. His books on food and nutrition reflect this 'cleaner,' more intuitive and useful understanding of food and how it impacts our health. Patrick hopes that his books will save his audience time and aggravation by finally offering practical ways to achieve their nutrition and fitness goals.

I've lifted weights regularly for the last ten years of my life, and I look like it. Unfortunately, in the last year it seems like all of the joints in my arms and shoulders have begun to ache increasingly after every workout. After being told to consider another form of training by several physicians, I looked into a few body-weight training programs. After doing a fair amount of research on the matter, I bought Mr. Barrett's book. Quite frankly, it has changed the way I think about muscle development. Not only am I able to maintain my considerable muscle mass in the comfort of my own home (or front yard), but I have begun the develop in areas that I didn't even consider when I was performing the repetitive and isolated movements of weight training.

I really can't recommend this book enough.

For the price, I got it on kindle, it's not a bad book. I personally feel some of the exercises are not where beginners should be starting. if you are just starting I would recommend spending a little more on a book with better progression. For 5 dollars I can't really complain much but would have rather spent the money on something better.

"Natural Exercise" is a well written and practical guide for those wanting to get in shape and develop muscle mass, without needing costly gym equipment or memberships. All of the exercises are clearly described and most have helpful photos to show the proper way to perform the exercise.

The sections on healthy eating, supplements, and vitamins are also very informative and provide a lot of good information for maximizing your workout results through proper nutrition.

This is a great way to start getting back into shape before jumping into a more formal training program.

Highly Recommended!

I was disappointed with this book. Mostly because it is geared toward MALE exercisers (I'm female), and features dark, grainy photos of already athletic and strong looking men performing the exercises without equipment, which the book promotes. Most of the exercises looked too difficult for someone who is not already fit and strong, so I thought the book's value as a "promoter" of "natural exercise" was limited. The book is slender and not spiral-bound, making it difficult to keep open if trying to reference it while performing an exercise.

I read NATURAL EXERCISE and also YOU ARE YOUR OWN GYM. YAYOG is more complete, with more and better exercises. Best of all is the YAYOG app.

Even though this was good information, I have already been into keeping myself fit for years and found this to be old information for me. If you are new to the fitness game, it will be great information for you.

The exercise section was well organized with common exercises that you can find anywhere. Nothing is wrong with simplicity. A weakness was not giving enough suggestions for doing the exercises with modifications for beginners or situations with injuries. The diet advice could have been left out. I'm not convinced that eating red meat and fruit is so healthy for most of us. This book is actually quite good in describing technique. There are many other books out there also dealing with body weight exercises that may give those of us with short attention spans more exercise options and possibly less boredom. Currently there is more exercise focus on interval training and tabatas. The author scratched the surface on this and might address these important issues in a future upgrade version.
