If you want to look good, using just a few functional bodyweight exercises, that you can do for most of your life and that you don't need a gym for, then buy this book. The author teaches you six basic strength exercises that, although appear difficult [ and extremely impressive if you saw someone doing them ] are broken down into ten progressive steps that are achieveable to anyone who just takes their time and doesn't rush to get there. Four of the exercises you will instantly bond with. The push up, the pull up, the one legged squat [pistol] and the hanging straight-leg raises [ for the all important core muscles, mustn't forget these. Though most people do, coz they're hard ]. Of the other two, I would say work on the bridge, which is important for the back muscles, especially the lower back muscles, but if you are an older person you may find the finished bridge position too difficult if your not that flexible. But work to a far as you can and even if you don't get there you will strengthen your back immensely. The last exercise I do think is just showing off. But again, a great strengthener and good fun [and good luck!] trying to get there. Ignore this slight criticism if you're young and eager and just go for it, because this is a very good book and you will not be disappointed. The title is a bit naff but I don't see what else he could've called it to be honest. Also, think about this . . . . women never seem impressed watching a man with bulging biceps curling massive weights . . . but always seem very impressed by the olympic gymnasts doing bodyweight exercises? Get my drift?
