It is comprehensive, and yet, you can just take one short chapter and make it a start of your own journey of revving up your metabolism.
A short spurt of activity - dancing for less than a minute, or such - first thing in the morning - helped me to peel off a full size of clothing after I got Al Sears book. And it was fun. It took 6 weeks, without doing anything else out of the ordinary.
I never did the longer routines, as those felt too tedious and too strenuous. Just having some fun, and dancing around my house while boiling water for morning tea jump-started my metabolism, and my mood. Got me to feel playful again, and start looking for OTHER moments to do some more FUN activities. Even got me to swing in kid's playground, great toning for abdominal musles, and great to get water retention out of the body.
This is a great book and good concept. I like the idea of short but challenging workouts, and how much better for you they can be.
Even older adults can do it because it may just be getting up and down out of a chair 20 times. Then they are stronger for daily living.
The book contends that cardio is dead and long distance running and such are very bad for the body. High Intensity Interval Training is much better.
I have been doing this for several weeks, and am very happy with it.
I have yet to try some of his supplementing advise, but I am eager to begin. The book introduces you to the Glycemic Load diet which is a lot like Atkins, but much better in my opinion. If you follow this workout there is no way you will remain at your current level of fitness. I love that it only takes 15 to 20 minutes. I will update this as I get further into the workout.
1.) This book is NOT just one long infomercial
2.) It is NOT just a rehash of HIIT
3.) You can NOT summarize this book into a 3 sentence "just workout hard for 3 mins, then 2 mins, etc"
Although similar to HIIT, it is not. It is more, it is better.
Additionally, it is not just a book of how to exercise -- there is more, to include treatment of diet/food which has some sound wisdom.
Let me please cut to the chase so you don't have to waste time either -- the book is a worthwhile read, lots of important and good info laid out in a very easy-to-read manner. Well done. I actually read it in under a week - about 4 sittings or so. Very seldom do I find a tome with that kind of fluidity of reading enjoyment.
Still skiddish? Then buy it used! Just please know it's important to get off the fence post and out of the reviews - you won't know or benefit until u do. ;-)
