Praise for The New Rules of Abs:
“There isn’t a single crunch or sit-up in The New Rules of Lifting for Abs. Instead, Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove base their workout around planks and side planks…This isn’t a revolutionary concept among fitness professionals. But you’d never know it by watching what people in health clubs do.” —Yahoo Sports
“All the crunches in the world won’t give you the six-pack you want. These exercises will.” —Men's Health
“Cosgrove and Schuler’s groundbreaking program is based on the concept that a healthy, sculpted body is the result of your muscles working the way they were intended.” —Women's Health

New Rules of Lifting is it. It focuses on functional strength and power. Each workout closes with a metabolic session. There are numerous moves to choose from and if you are fluent in exercise moves, you can easily substitute.
Well written. Easy to navigate for reference. It's a great blend of CrossFit and traditional strength training..
Review by Dan Sabin ISSA-CFT
Lou Schuler is entertaining and very knowledgeable. Alwyn Cosgrove is a genius. Together, they are a perfect team only exceeded by the combination of Alwyn and Rachel Cosgrove and their work at Results Fitness. That said, I am 22 years old. The New Rules of Lifting for Life was not written for me and, while I know what Lou says is true about getting older, a small voice in my head kept saying "That won't happen to you." As a trainer myself, I learned a lot of useful information that will help me understand my middle aged clients better. Alwyn's programs and methods are the best, and that is why I base a lot of my training system on his work.
If you don't like reading fitness books because you find them dull, then you'll love this book. Lou is a great writer and one of the few who do a good job of entertaining you while teaching you something.
If your current program isn't getting you the results you want, then give Alwyn's programs a try. He is one of the best in the country.
Prepare to push yourself though, they don't promise magic results with little work. They promise real results with hard work and persistence.
I have been doing this work out for a little over 2 months and love how much stronger I feel and look. My diet has been very good for 10 years (low carb) so now with this book I feel like I have the other piece of the puzzle.
I recently purchased the book as a gift for my sister, a recent cancer survivor, and for my brother who is now in his early 40’s. I recommend the book for anyone over 40 years old who wants a vigorous work out.
