My most effective weight loss program was doing 10 minutes a week of high intensity strength training and ZERO cardio.
Book is very good an easy reading.

Most of the reviews written here are far more concise, clear, and well presented than this book. I totally agree with the comment that says this book could easily be a third of its size because that is all the content there actually is and I'm being generous. The book is like an infomercial in that it harps over and over and over and over and over again about the amazing benefits of this program to the detriment of the actual content. He could have started with one chapter or even two in the beginning which "sells" the reader on the program and then actually got down to the meat of subject. Instead the book is very poorly organized, nearly impossible to understand, and practically a waste of time. It took me far too long to pull the bits out that actually explain the program because they aren't in any logical order and are separated by more schmaltzy infomercial talk.

Look, I've got the book, I'm very interested in the program, when the heck are you going to stop trying to sell me on it?

Once you pull out the bits actually pertaining to how to USE the program in your life I felt that there were many questions that remained unanswered and things he should have gone over. In the end he throws in a quick bit about some calisthenics that he suggest you do, but doesn't explain how they fit into the program. Do I do these as a part of the program? Do I do them separately? What about people with injuries? What about people who want to build back up strength and flexibility as well? I do think that this program is the right track, but the book is simply awful. I returned mine to his company for a refund partially because it was not worth the money and didn't tell me anything you can't find about his program on the internet and partially because it is MUCH cheaper on Amazon.

The science behind this book is pretty solid and is not some new controversial fad. I was given this book by a friend who kept telling me that long distance running was actually making me fatter, I was skeptical.

Having run marathons and done quite well, I was looking for something more. I decided the next step was to tackle some 50 mile runs and some that are much further. As I trimmed out my track workouts and hill repeats, to add in more distance, I found that I was gaining weight while running more miles each week. Most of my runs consisted of no less than 10 miles at a pace of about 7:00/mile. My longer runs were a bit slower at 23 miles over about a 3.5/4 hour period. My diet changed little, but I was gaining weight and specifically belly fat.

Eliminating the hills and track was the cause of the weight gain, and was actually slowing me down. So of course I am now doing PACE, feeling stronger and running faster over longer distances. So, I guess it is possible to do more by doing less. In addition to hills and track workouts, I am changing things up by adding in a stairs workout that is done by the US speed skating team.

I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 for one reason. The book is great, but Dr. Sears repeats the same things over and over. I think the book could be trimmed to about 150 pages by eliminating some the repetition while still keeping the core value material and case studies.

Overall, it's a fast read and the methods are easy to put into place, especially if you are already quite active.

I'll update my review in a few weeks after some more progress.

Format: Paperback
In Sears' book, we discover we don't need cardio, aerobics or weightlifting. He tells us that our society is overweight and out of shape and that these activities only make our problems worse.

I was interested to discover that Sears offers a great way to help yourself avoid a heart attack or stroke. He says that those events can happen when a person is under sudden stress or something happens to cause the heart to beat faster than normal. For example, you've heard of the person who had a heart attack upon hearing of the death of a loved one or perhaps after shoveling snow.

So using his method, you train the heart to be strong and to be prepared for these triggers and you'll safely go through them. "When your heart has the capacity to jump into high gesr whenever it needs to and then recover at a moment's notice, you are in excellent health," he says.

So the routines you learn in the book will help you get your heart in good health in short spurts. He says long duration workouts are unnatural and dangerous.

Sears says your lungs shrink with age and each time you practice extended endurance-related cardio, you're making them even smaller and weaker. His PACE program is designed to solve that problem.

Of regular exercise programs he says, "These misguided forms of exercise downsize your heart's output, shrink your lungpower, and encourage your body to make more fat."

He tells us we can reverse this problem. You don't need to force yourself through monotonous "cardio", aerobics or weight training. He suggests you replace these strategies with activities that mimic your challenges in a natural environment, the results come much faster and easier. On top of that, it takes much less of your time and it's fun to do.
