Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"What? Is this a book just on sit-ups? Who needs that?"
Here's a little secret from the author (me): 7 Weeks to 300 Sit-Ups is far from being a book just about sit-ups; with over 30 core-strengthening exercises, the programs in the book are dedicated to improving your posture, boosting athletic performance, burning fat and shredding your abs! The "300 Sit-Ups" name comes from the tests you'll be performing once you've developed amazing core strength.
"I've heard sit-ups are bad for your back, there's no way anyone should be doing them!"
Your poor posture, and weak back are to blame for your pain - not proper form sit-ups! Strengthening your hips, back, glutes, and abs are crucial for ALL sports movements - not just sit-ups!

From the Inside Flap

Pick an activity. Better yet, choose three. Let's say you went with "jogging", "jumping jacks" and"playing chess". What muscles do they have in common? That last one should mess up the results, right?
Nope.
Every movement you make from the moment you get out of bed in the morning - actually, even the act of climbing out of the sack - uses your core. The muscles of your lower torso make it possible for you to stand upright, shift your weight, bend, twist, walk, or move in any direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchase This Book March 26, 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is ideal for anyone who is interested in focusing on the most fundamental aspect of their physique (i.e., the core). The book, unlike so many others, presents sufficient detail to wholly satisfy its objective but does not contain superflous information that would exists solely to satisfied an author's ego. Brett Stewart's knowledge enables him to write to a broad range of folks. That is, individuals of all levels will surely find this book worth its moderate price. Finally, the book is a paperback publication that is easy to throw in a gym bag and to carry around a gym but is much more durable than a magazine. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for!!! July 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I consider myself a pretty fit person who knows how to workout. The area I struggle in getting a good workout in is the core. I was in a rut of doing the exact same ab workouts 2-3 times a week. I had to force myself to do these 2-3 boring workouts. This all changed after implementing this program. The first couple of days really showed me how limited my core strength was. I am a runner and having a strong core is key. I know workout my core 3 times a week after I get my run in. I have noticed a change in how my abs work and more importantly feel stronger in my running form. I continue to use these workouts to add variety to my core workouts. Having a routine already planned out for me to follow is so helpful and takes the guess work out of doing a good core workout. If you are just starting to build your core or wanting to improve your core workout routine this book is for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Guide, but a Caveat October 13, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unless you're already very fit, you won't be doing 300 sit-ups in seven weeks. I am on week four of the beginners program and doing good so far. It's going to be more like twenty weeks for me, which is fine. Buyers should be aware that you'll need more than the book if you want to follow the suggested exercises - a stability ball, a medicine ball and a resistance band set. Maybe $60 or $70 for these, all together. Amazon has a lot of options for these items.

The book is easy to follow, although at first, you'll be doing a lot of flipping through the book while exercising. The program mixes a series of exercises to build the core and the specific exercises change each session, so there's no way the exercises can go in order in the book. It's not just sit-ups that you'll be doing, so it's not boring. It takes me about 30 to 35 minutes to do each session, including rest periods, warm-up and stretching and there are three sessions per week. It's a good, solid work-out.

One note that the first copy I bought fell apart on me after the second session. The pages came apart from the binding and this prompts the four-star review. I returned the defective book and Amazon promptly replaced it with a new copy that is holding up better so far, although I'm treating it more gingerly.

Steve Speirs has written several "Seven Weeks" book. I am doing 7 Weeks to 50 Pull-Ups: Strengthen and Sculpt Your Arms, Shoulders, Back, and Abs by Training to Do 50 Consecutive Pull-Ups and 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups: Strengthen and Sculpt Your Arms, Abs, Chest, Back and Glutes by Training to do 100 Consecutive Push-Ups at the same time. The exercise programs in these two books are simpler than the sit-ups program,and it's easy to do all three at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good so far October 31, 2013
By GC
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed to improve my core strength.
I always had good intentions but I would work my abs for a few days then give up (while I was a bit more consistent with lifting weights) so this program makes it easy -3 times a week you have a schedule and it seems to be helping me reduce my abs and increase my core strength.

I had to do the prep program and it really helps you get into the program.

When I got the book I was surprised/disappointed about its small size but once I started reading/using it I have begun to like it.

There is an app for this (0.99$) that is helpful too.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 Weeks to a 6 Pack March 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
I just received the latest book in the "7 Weeks to..." series by Brett Stewart. I have not started the program yet, but have read through the book and was thoroughly impressed with the many different ab workouts laid out in the book. I look forward to further gains in my physical health, thanks largely to Brett's innovative and interesting workouts. 15 pounds lost to date and a few more good workouts to go. Thanks Brett!!

More About the Author

I'm that fat kid in gym class who can't do a single pull-up.
I'm the 30 year old overweight smoker who gets winded walking up a flight of stairs.
I'm an Ironman finisher, ultramathoner, fitness model & author.

I know what it feels like to be picked last in sports, get laughed at by classmates (and my p.e. teacher) during the Presidential Fitness Test and be content with being overweight and unhappy with my appearance.

My goal is to show others how energizing and exciting getting fit can be with easy-to-use and fun programs.
