I agree this book provides a great Yoga workout, especially for a Yoga novice like myself. As with other reviews, my only criticism is that you do have to flip some pages to follow the workout.

After each of the movements are explained, there is a section where you put it all together, with images that chronologically outline a 20-minute workout, along with a section for additional exercises to turn it into a 30-minute workout, and a section for more exercises that make it a 45-minute workout.

The problem in looking at the routines is that there are no reminders as to whether to inhale or exhale, or how many breaths to take while holding each pose. My solution was to write that info in under each picture for easy reference. On those poses where I inhale, I put an arrow pointing up. For an exhale, I use an arrow pointing down. If the book instructs me to hold a pose while breathing in and out three times, I wrote in an "up" arrow, then the number three, then a "down" arrow.

I also made a visual note (a thick vertical line) in the 20-minute routine to indicate where I need to flip over to the add-on exercises to make it a 30-minute routine. Then, it's just a matter of inserting a bookmark or folding down a page corner to find the 30-minute add-ons without breaking your workout flow.

With these slight tweaks, I find this to be the perfect workout to do when I'm traveling. You can do it in a hotel room (even a small one) and get a great workout without having to find a gym or rely on the workout facilities (or lack thereof) at the hotel.

Diamond Dallas Page's "Yoga for Regular Guys" is a very well illustrated intro guide to yoga, focusing on only a few major patterns, but spending a lot more time illustrating them and talking through how to get the most out of them than many other yoga guides I've perused. Its pragmatic approach makes it an ideal intro guide for guys (or women) who want to get into Yoga but have no idea where to start.

Two of my "girl" friends started doing this YRG and I can not believe the transformation of thier shapes and even their mental outlook. I was so impressed I decided to give it a try and all I can say is..After my second day of doing the 20 minute workout, it hurt to even breathe and I didn't think it was doing much as I was learning the moves. But I am already motivated to add a change to my diet and I think this may be the perfect combination of several life style changes that may be just the thing that really really works.

Some books have an immediate impact on your life. It changes your way of thinking, your goals, and your focus. This is one of those books. I started implementing stuff from the book before finishing it. I also started back at the beginning and reread it straight through a second time. Fortunately I happened upon the book by chance. My first introduction to Yoga with Diamond Dallas Page was a Facebook share of the video 'Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!' It really blew me away. So I immediately started looking into DDP Yoga. I found out that it started with a book. And being a bibliophile I had to check out the book. Here is the history of the progression of YRG to DDP Yoga.

Timeline:
2005 - Yoga For Regular Guys - Published in Paper Back
2006 - YRG Yoga for Regular Guys 3 DVD Set
2008 - Yoga For Regular Guys - Republished in Paperback
2009 - Rebranded as YRG Fitness System
2010 - YRG Fitness System Advance Set
2011 - Rebranded as DDP Yoga
2012 - DDP Yoga Extreme
2013 - Yoga For Regular Guys - Published in eBook format

Fortunately the book had just been republished as an eBook. So I got a copy and started read and rereading. I have been back and forth through the book a number of times in a short time. The book has a hilarious forward by Rob Zombie.

OK, I'll admit that I was very hesitant to try yoga at first. I have taken martial arts for 20 years & had always considered Yoga to be more of a sissy thing. Well, Dallas Page changed my mind- & Yoga really whopped my @$$!

Yoga For Regular Guys is probably the BEST work out you can get. It works every muscle- even ones you didn't know you had. It can really build your body & boost your confidence. You don't need to be in amazing shape to try it either. The beauty of YRG is that it will sculpt your body for you- if you are willing to at least try. YRG takes you step-by-steo through the entire process. Nothing is left out, even nutrition & the proper ways to get the most out of your food are strategically explained. Who wouldn't want to improve not only their body? But it also (as corny as this sounds) clears your mind too.

Hey! If I guy like DDP can do yoga & look cool, then no one will laugh at you. 'Cause one of the most dominant athletes swears by it. The sexy yoga babes don't hurt either.

Yoga For Regular Guys, it's a Good Thing!!
