5.0 out of 5 stars Building a Solid Foundation on Basics 5 Feb 2012
By Hugh
600 Push-ups 30 Variations is a handy little book, jam-packed with information. As a Black Belt and someone who travels frequently, I'm always on the lookout for ways to exercise, and often I don't have the to go to the gym. Bob's book offers a huge variety of exercises that require no equipment, no gym, and very little time.

600 Push-ups 30 Variations is also very well illustrated, with clear and detailed pictures of Bob demonstrating each of the exercises.

There are also excellent routines included - I especially enjoyed the 600 pushups incorporated into a 60 min run.

Like many things in life, it's the basics that you can fall back on and build upon, and this is exactly what Bob's book delivers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Feeling like a school project from 6th grade 20 Dec 2013
By Stuck
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe it is a little to hard, to say that it reminds me of a school project, but that's the truth. It looks really bad, the language is awful, and the book itself is like copy of some cheap Wikipedia or so. You quickly get the feeling that this guy doesn't know what he is talking about and this book barely cover the basics. I could have made this myself in no time. There is so little effort put in to this. Sure it got some alternative push-ups, but that's just for the fun of it, not really explaining them properly or telling why they are good and what specific muscles you use.

I'm really dissatisfied with this, since I could have google'd it and found better information in 2 minutes or so.

Review – 600 Pushups 30 variations Bob Weinstein

600 Push Ups is an interesting little book by Retired USAR Lt. Colonel. The book is well published. The pictures are good. The instructions on the 30 push up variations are clear.

The choice of the 30 push up variations is apparently at random from the many variations available. Yes, they are mostly listed in order of difficulty. The title “600 pushups” comes from an on the spot challenge to do 600 pushups within 60 minutes of a run, distance or time not indicated. Weinstein does later in the book admit that that is a rather extreme case, and was designed for a man about to climb Mt Kilimanjaro.

The workouts recommended in the book lack luster and life.

If want a list of and instructions with decent pictures for 30 different pushups, this is a good little book. But beyond that I, at least, found it at best lack luster and unimaginative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Fit and Have Fun! 11 Feb 2012
By Ronald J. Savarese - Published on
I love this book! I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of push-ups. This book is filled with instructions and pictures and dozens of short inspirational quotes and snippets. I used to have a push-up regimen but I'd gotten away from it. This book has inspired me to add that diversity back into to my workout regimen. If you're up for a little challenge, and for feeling better physically, mentally, and emotionally, buy this book, get to work, and have fun! Thanks Colonel Bob.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take Your Work-Out To The Next Level! 7 Feb 2012
By Kathleen Casey - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I have always considered push-ups to be one of the best exercises for building lean muscle so I could not agree more with Lt. Colonel Bob Weinstein. In his book 600 push-ups, 30 variations. He advises "The push-up is the best, most complete upper body exercise in the world. That is why it is the foundational exercise of all our military forces." In this book, Weinstein both describes and demonstrates plenty of variations on the standard military style push-up and even includes work-out plans to help you get in shape. I had no idea there were that many variations on push-ups. He has included modifications that are both fun to try, AND make your work-out more difficult. I especially loved the "Scorpion" push-up. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to take their work-out to the next level. STOP Back Pain: Kiss Your Back, Neck And Sciatic Nerve Pain Goodbye!
