A couple of things I did not like about the book:
- It's only a 10 week challenge. You can shed a significant amount of fat in that time, but to build any appreciable muscle takes a LOT longer than that.
- The alpha scale presented uses biceps size as a measure, but there is nothing to correlate biceps size to your body structure. Biceps size is largely determined by your bone structure. Would have liked to see biceps measured against height/weight or waist size to make it more meaningful.
- Trying to hold the workout frequency suggested long term not realistic for most trainees in my opinion.
The diet advice was very good. Eat clean, unprocessed foods. Eat more frequent, smaller meals. Solid.
If you are looking for a book on body transformation, I prefer either Brawn or Build Muscle, Lose Fat, Look Great by Stuart McRobert.
