Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Brett Stewart is a personal trainer and author of 7 Weeks to 50 Pull-ups

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.

Brett Stewart is a NCCPT Certified Personal Trainer, fitness coach, triathlete and marathoner living (and training) in Phoenix, Arizona

Customer Reviews

If you need to up your level of pull-ups or pushup this is a good routine.
Scott Mayer
This book is awesome because its simple to follow, with easy to understand concepts, and it is a great refresher.

Put simply, I never thought I would get a workout from just using my body like I did from this....so much sweat.

Get ripped in 7 weeks. The aim is to get lean and mean, like the person on the cover of this book.

To start this program, you must already have a solid foundation of strength.

Pass the "Power 4" test listed below and you can go.

1. Pull up: 6 or over
2. Squat: 10 or over
3. Push up: 15 or over
4. Plank: hold for 30 seconds or over

Did you pass all 4 tests? Are you ready for the exercises? But first, please note that a pull up bar and a medicine ball are required for the program.

Here are most of exercises. In general, the exercises are based on using your body weight.

Push up
Diamond push up
Wide push up
Medicine ball push up
T push up

Pull up with grip variations
Commando pull up

Plank
Side plank

In and out (core work)
Flutter kick
Mason twist
V-sit
Reverse crunch
Hanging leg raise
Leg climber
Bicycle crunch
Superman

Squat, with medicine ball
Wall sit
Lunge
Lunge with twist
Marching twist

Mountain climber
Burpee
Inchworm
Wood chop
J-up

Tabata intervals with various exercises

Here's a basic and very minimal outline of the 7 week program. It is divided into two levels. Work out 3 days a week, with a rest day between each exercise day.

Level 1
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3

Level 2
Week 4
Week 5
Week 6
Week 7

If you can not pass the pull up test, and thus, need to build up before you can do the program, there is a 3 week prep program to establish your foundation.

There is nothing new in this book, in terms of what is being said, but it does offer a structured program that is easy to follow and it doesn't require you to spend too much money. You will, in addition to the book, need a chin-up/ pull-up bar and a medicine ball to really embrace the program, but that is about all. This is a great place to start for beginners, however, as with all exercise programs it requires committment. If you are not willing to make a consistent and focussed effort then this book is useless. That means regular exercise and healthy eating. If you don't want to join a gym, or you don't feel you have the time for a gym, then this is definetly the book for you. Most of the exercises can be done at home or during your lunch break indoor or out. The instructions are clear and the exercises simple. I am a long time gym junkie but still found I could tweek the programs and make them challenging. For example I added a 15 minute weights session to the end of each workout and then did one hour of cardio on the days it suggested a rest.

This book is a nuts & bolts, down to earth, practical approach to getting "ripped". What sets this book apart from many in this genre is that the author lays out everything you need to get in the best shape of your life! The book gives you all the tools necessary, including nutrition, workouts, warm-ups, and the exercises (of course!). What is also helpful is that there is a follow-up section on where to go when you complete the program.

The beautiful thing about the program and the author's whole approach to fitness is that you can tell he genuinely wants you to achieve your fitness goals. The best example of this is that you can "try it before you buy it" by going to the companion web site which has a major part of the book online for free! Another example is his approach to nutrition. He gives you information and guidelines that will help you understand how to approach eating clean and healthy. The other major example is the price of the book! Along with the website and the Facebook page (where he gladly answers your questions) you are really getting a bargain.

The heart of the book is the exercises section. They are plentiful and I found them very helpful. What is also nice is that tougher variations are explained so even advanced enthusiasts will find some meat to chew on.

A bonus for me was the games in the back of the book. There are some very creative ideas that will get your mind churning and thinking of different ways to implement them. What a novel idea! Have fun getting and staying in shape.

If you are just starting back on your fitness trek after several years of inactivity, I would highly recommend reading through the web site, taking the fitness test, and starting the program.

Too often there is a "foolproof" way to lose weight and get in shape that involves 7-14 hour long workouts, extreme diets and you have to already be in world class shape to participate. 7 Weeks to Getting Ripped does it right; if you are already in decent shape, it dumps you into a program designed to tax you, push you and generally cut you up. If you aren't, it has a gentle on ramp to building the base and preparing you for the programs set out in the rest of the book.

And unlike programs like P90X, you don't need a lot of equipment. 7 Weeks to Getting Ripped uses mostly bodyweight exercises and pushes you through a progressive series of challenges. Put simply, I never thought I would get a workout from just using my body like I did from this....so much sweat.

If that was all it was, 7 Weeks to Getting Ripped would be worth the price, but it offers more. A no fluff, no nonsense approach to nutrition that makes sense, tips on food, working out, lifestyle tweaks and games.

And, the thing I like the most, are the games. Ever hit a lull in your exercise program and need a break? Well, 7 Weeks to Getting Ripped takes care of that by offering individual and group games that make working out fun and interesting. If you have a friend or two, you can seriously get a GREAT workout in half an hour and have a blast doing it.

Simply put, get this, follow it and in 7 short weeks I'm sure you'll be in better shape.
