The workout programs themselves are excellent. Very scalable for people at all levels of fitness. I have very bad knees and the book works with you to find alternate methods. I'm only four weeks in, but am already seeing tangible results. I would highly recommend this book to any and all women looking to increase their strength or general fitness.
My other big problem with the book is that the workout charts are not very well formatted. I would think the editor would be able to come up with something more creative that would take up fewer pages. The month-long section I am in requires 6 pages of workout charts to complete. Basically you alternate between two workouts and the only thing that changes is the number of reps and sets. The workout charts also don't have any page numbers to indicate where you can find directions for the exercise they are referring to. I have taken to locating the exercise and writing it directly on the chart myself to save myself time. Sometimes I want to refer to the directions again to ensure I am doing the lift correctly. It seems like another little editorial detail that would have been helpful.
Overall, I enjoy the book and I'm glad I bought it. I'm not sure it will be a long-term lifting companion, though.
