Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"What? Is this a book just on sit-ups? Who needs that?"
Here's a little secret from the author (me): 7 Weeks to 300 Sit-Ups is far from being a book just about sit-ups; with over 30 core-strengthening exercises, the programs in the book are dedicated to improving your posture, boosting athletic performance, burning fat and shredding your abs! The "300 Sit-Ups" name comes from the tests you'll be performing once you've developed amazing core strength.
"I've heard sit-ups are bad for your back, there's no way anyone should be doing them!"
Your poor posture, and weak back are to blame for your pain - not proper form sit-ups! Strengthening your hips, back, glutes, and abs are crucial for ALL sports movements - not just sit-ups!

From the Inside Flap

Pick an activity. Better yet, choose three. Let's say you went with "jogging", "jumping jacks" and"playing chess". What muscles do they have in common? That last one should mess up the results, right?
Nope.
Every movement you make from the moment you get out of bed in the morning - actually, even the act of climbing out of the sack - uses your core. The muscles of your lower torso make it possible for you to stand upright, shift your weight, bend, twist, walk, or move in any direction.

Unless you're already very fit, you won't be doing 300 sit-ups in seven weeks. I am on week four of the beginners program and doing good so far. It's going to be more like twenty weeks for me, which is fine. Buyers should be aware that you'll need more than the book if you want to follow the suggested exercises - a stability ball, a medicine ball and a resistance band set. Maybe $60 or $70 for these, all together. Amazon has a lot of options for these items.

The book is easy to follow, although at first, you'll be doing a lot of flipping through the book while exercising. The program mixes a series of exercises to build the core and the specific exercises change each session, so there's no way the exercises can go in order in the book. It's not just sit-ups that you'll be doing, so it's not boring. It takes me about 30 to 35 minutes to do each session, including rest periods, warm-up and stretching and there are three sessions per week. It's a good, solid work-out.

One note that the first copy I bought fell apart on me after the second session. The pages came apart from the binding and this prompts the four-star review. I returned the defective book and Amazon promptly replaced it with a new copy that is holding up better so far, although I'm treating it more gingerly.

I consider myself a pretty fit person who knows how to workout. The area I struggle in getting a good workout in is the core. I was in a rut of doing the exact same ab workouts 2-3 times a week. I had to force myself to do these 2-3 boring workouts. This all changed after implementing this program. The first couple of days really showed me how limited my core strength was. I am a runner and having a strong core is key. I know workout my core 3 times a week after I get my run in. I have noticed a change in how my abs work and more importantly feel stronger in my running form. I continue to use these workouts to add variety to my core workouts. Having a routine already planned out for me to follow is so helpful and takes the guess work out of doing a good core workout. If you are just starting to build your core or wanting to improve your core workout routine this book is for you!

This is a great book for those wanting to start out a workout routine. Its exactly the place you want to target, the midsection. This is a step by step guide i keep within reach to keep perfecting my form for best results. I just started the routine but i already am feeling some results. Thanks for the good information!

This book is ideal for anyone who is interested in focusing on the most fundamental aspect of their physique (i.e., the core). The book, unlike so many others, presents sufficient detail to wholly satisfy its objective but does not contain superflous information that would exists solely to satisfied an author's ego. Brett Stewart's knowledge enables him to write to a broad range of folks. That is, individuals of all levels will surely find this book worth its moderate price. Finally, the book is a paperback publication that is easy to throw in a gym bag and to carry around a gym but is much more durable than a magazine. I highly recommend this book.

I'm really enjoying using and following the programs in this book. However, I have two suggestions for the author. First, there is a big jump from the preparatory programs to the next level in the number of exercises and repetitions. I think the preparatory program should be lengthened and the number of exercises and reps increased to help exercisers make a smoother transition to the next level. I ended up doing the preparatory program twice before I successfully transitioned to the next level. Second, I suggest the author talk to the publisher to beef up the binding. The binding in my book is falling apart and I have been taping it together. Overall, I like this book a lot. I do the program faithfully thrice a week and it is really helpful in my opinion.

My experience with the exercises in the program has been very positive so far. I was in a push-up program, due to abs getting tired, so I picked-up this book and worked from the very beginning program. I highly recommend the prep-level, as it really helps build core strength with little effort. After about 3 weeks, I did not have any more problems with abs strength in my other push-up program. The variety of exercises was something I really appreciated, as I get bored quickly of just doing the same exercises over many sets. I don't know about doing 300 sit-ups at this point, but I would still recommend this book highly for building a strong core.

I think this is a great book about how to strengthen your midsection. It deals with regular sit ups and not crunches which is right up my alley. Anyone interested in improving their core strength should get this book.
