I got Matt's book and jumped into the beginner program. I've been able to get through 5 weeks of it so far.
First, this program really pushes me. Sometimes after the workout, I just collapse and lay there for a while. And I'm not in bad shape. So I'd recommend this to those of you who don't have a lot of time, and want to get the most out of what little time they have to exercise. The strength workouts usually take me about 35-37 minutes to finish (including a 5 min warmup) and the conditioning workouts take 13-21 minutes to finish. That doesn't include the time afterwards where I'm laying on my back happily gasping for air.
Second, there's a lot of additional info in here that gives you a great basis to begin from. The "why" and the "how" are just as important as the exercise program itself. I have a personal story here. I was getting a little lower back pain after doing some front squats. The book has a couple pages on the front squat. Between that and sending Matt an email (which he answered happily and promptly), I was able to improve my form a lot and avoid any permanent damage to my back.
So why am I smiling? Because I'm getting stronger. A lot stronger. And not just on paper. It is noticably easier to move real world objects like furniture or boxes. That, and I am putting on some good mass. I'm just surprised that it's happening so quickly. That's why I am smiling.
The Workouts are clear and concise coupled with easily identifiable photo illustrations, the programming is well structured with thought given to all levels of the fitness spectrum.
The training programme is challenging and extremely effective, the author clearly knows his stuff and puts across a convincing argument to ditch the monthly gym membership and buy a sandbag!, impressive.
