Do you want more from your gym experience?,
This review is from: The New Rules of Lifting Supercharged: Ten All-New Muscle-Building Programs for Men and Women (Hardcover)
I often recommend books from The New Rules of Lifting Series to my diet and nutrition clients when they want more out of their gym experience. I like these books because they gently dispel the many myths that surround weight lifting. I love these books because they focus on the movements that are important to health and fitness, rather than the muscles that an exercise "works."
Supercharged is my new top recommendation to clients and friends because it has at least 10 months of workout programs, dispels so many myths about lifting weights, and provides so many great exercise choices for all of the important movement patterns. In addition, each movement pattern starts with ones that anyone can do and works up to harder and more challenging exercises, so no one is left behind.
The book will not only provide almost a year's worth of workouts, but will become a reference book for exercise choices for future training programs.
The authors have tons of experience and have really done their research, but without bogging you down in study minutia. The evidence is there, and explained in an easy to read manner. The book is funny, too, with just enough serious discussion to truly change your mind about the weight room.
