No doubt, Coach Rylan means well, and there are many good tips in this book (I agree with eating lots of vegetables, avoiding processed foods, and doing HIIT cardio, among many other good tips listed - the reason I gave 3 stars), but I must caution anyone who attempts the strength-training exercises. It is *very* important to use good form when doing strength training so as to not get hurt. In my opinion, the instructions given for these exercises are not thorough enough and don't emphasize enough the importance of using safe form. For example, the book advises squatting "as low as you can get" (p. 59). When squatting, for knee safety, it's often advised that your thighs should remain parallel to the floor and to "not" go any lower than that, as doing so puts undue stress on your knee joints! Also, your knees should *never* protrude beyond your toes when you descend, but that cautionary tip wasn't given.
Some of the exercises are flat out hard on your joints. I threw caution to the wind and tried Day 1 exercises, as they looked like fun - my knees and wrists did *not* thank me later. If you google some of the individual exercises, as I later did (should have done it beforehand!), you will find that several are talked about as being hard on one's joints.
There are plenty of safe exercises out there - you do *not* have to hurt yourself or risk developing joint pain to get in shape. It's not worth it! I strongly advise looking elsewhere when it comes to strength training exercises. You don't need a plethora of exercises - just a simple but safe routine. I know that author, Rylan Duggan, has helped MANY and most likely has very good intentions with this book, but I cannot recommend his exercises.
The highlight for me, and a must read for everyone, is Coach Rylan's 10 Nutrition Commandments. Follow these 10 tips and you'll be assured of success. No ifs or buts.
