1. The schedule is doable for just about anyone. His schedule is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The time can vary from as little as ten minutes to about 30 (While I've read the whole book, I haven't finished the entire four-week workout, so that is from guesswork, not practicum.)
2. The exercises don't need any special equipment.
3. The exercises vary, so someone like me doesn't get bored with the same drudgery routine every session.
4. The images were helpful. While the writing isn't poor, some of the descriptions are not very clear.
1. Please, please, please, if the author is reading this, please STOP telling me to go look at the videos on your website every single frickin' workout. I got it the first time. When I have to read the same sentence 13 times in an extremely short book, I want to never read anything you write ever again. Mentioning it twice is sufficient. Thirteen times??? Your readers are not a complete and utter morons; please do not treat us as such. We will remember from 10% to 15% to 21% that you have videos available on your website. And that only gets us through the second workout -- you do not need to make us endure the same sentence another 10 times.
2. Silly me. I did not realize that we are not all at the exact same fitness level. There are no variations given for people who may be injured, recovering from surgery, female, senior, out-of-shape, etc. We are given one way to do some rather challenging exercises, and that is it. Not helpful.
3. Some of these exercises are flat-out bad news for people with certain types of injuries. The author gives absolutely zero information of what exercises might be contraindicated for people with back problems, knee problems, shoulder problems, etc. I find this irresponsible and ethically poor. The author has a responsibility to his readers to advise them of situations where a particular exercise could cause harm. There is nothing.
This book has some good points. To me, it is a shame that the author has been irresponsible and lazy. This could have been a great book, and it is marginal. If you are healthy, if you already know a lot about exercise and fitness, and if you know how to adapt these exercises in a healthy manner, this is a perfectly fine book. If you do not meet the above criteria, please look for something that is a better teaching tool.
