Whether you're new to training or experienced, you'll enjoy this book. I've been lifting for nearly a decade and consider myself fairly educated in the field and I clarified quite a few things. I also recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series)--one of the better overall health and fitness books that I've read in a while.
Wiedenbach's book is about individual empowerment. In his words, we don't need an expensive personal trainer or fancy machine, just dedication, basic equipment, and the solid scientifically based information he offers in this book.
He attacks myths such as Weight training to get big, Cardio to get lean; cutting exercises, bulking exercises; importance of number of reps; which supplements fight cellulite; are there any supplements worth buying?; the best exercise for the abs is not the crunch!
Maik's well written and well designed book is a must for frustrated exercise advocates. The book is POD at Createspace so it likely will be available here on Amazon.com soon. It is a winner. Grady Harp, May 12
But that is where this Adonis figure steps away from his competitors. After listing the myths that abound, he inserts accessible methods for reducing size (the musculoskeletal tree covered in a blanket of adipose tissue) by addressing solid dietary information and how to permanently change the way to eat) and an exercise regimen that is smart, fast, repeatable and accompanied by the all important concept of stretching routines that prepare the body for resistance training. So according to Wiedenbach ignore the miracle adjuncts (thermogenic capsules, strange herbals remedies, protein bars and other fad diets and routines that promise the world but fall by the wayside due to LOI (lack of interest). And if it is inspiration you need, keep the cover photo handy! Grady Harp, January 12
