Just a note-- as a 50 year old woman who already works out, I found some of these exercises difficult to complete. I'm wondering if I'm more out of shape than I thought or if these exercises are HARD. I plan to keep up with the workout routine for the 6 weeks and see what happens.
The food portion is not a restricted "diet". It's a pretty lenient protocol with lots of variety and it's all explained in a really easy to understand way. It's basis is real foods. The workout part is using your body weight: no gym, no equipment, no nothing. Just you and it really works you.
**I noticed another reviewer who questioned whether she was just out of shape or are the exercises really hard?... and I would say BOTH. The exercises themselves aren't hard on their own, but when completed in a set, it's more than you do in your typical workout; that's what makes it so efficient. My husband bought the men's version of this book (which is the same as the women's but with added weight and a couple of the exercises were modified) and before our vacation he did this program for 6 weeks, religiously. He's 43 and fit. I'm talking 1.5 in the gym 6 days a week, serious about proper fitness and form type of man. He thought this workout couldn't be much of anything because of the mere simplicity of them and how little time he would be spending on the workout. He was more than a little surprised when he had a hard time completing the routine the first week. This workout pushes you to the limit. He was able to do the full circuit and at the end of the workout he was drenched in sweat, like he never would be at the gym, and he saw results. He was leaner and stronger. His cardiovascular system was so much stronger that at about the 3rd week, after his workout he would go and run a mile, "just for fun".
What I'm saying might sound daunting, but I recommended this book to my 57 year old mother.Read more ›
