I bought this book with an open mind. I read the book and did the exercises as recommended. Yes, the exercises do indeed work. They do work your muscles and no it is not a cake walk.

A great book to describe isometric exercises. This was recommended by my muscle activation therapist. The pictures help to show you other isometric exercises.

The author shows an understanding of how isometric exercises work, and give a fairly complete Frequently Asked Questions section to give some great sage advice on how to perform the exercises.
As this is an inexpensive Kindle book, I also ordered The Isometric Exercise Bible: A Workout Routine For Everyone by Anthony Arnholt.The Isometric Exercise Bible: A Workout Routine For Everyone These books are nearly identical. I mean that 90% of the text is identical. The exercises are nearly all the same (with one exception). Since this book (the one I'm reviewing) was published first, I can only assume the the book by Arnholt was simply copied, and few illustrations changed, and published as his own.
This in no way reflects on this book. I was very happy with my purchase.
Get the book, do the exercises faithfully as described and you'll get results.
You and your body are all that you need! The exercises will deliver the same intensity you feel just like working out with weights or a weight machine. The great upside is you can do an entire body workout in 15 to 20 minutes.
The biggest excuse most of us have when it comes to working out the old fashioned way (i.e. going to the gym, working out with weights, etc...) is that "I don't have the time". Well after buying this book and doing the exercises, I really don't have that as an excuse.
David gives some simple tricks to get the most benefit from the exercises. Remember, isometrics cause a rapid increase in strength, so add them as soon as possible.
Healthy living to all.
This book was a great introduction with perfectly thought out instructions that didn't assume I knew anything already. I was very happy to find this book and highly recommend it.
