New Rules of Lifting for Life by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove
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.
