If you doubt the validity of twenty minute workouts helping you achieve fitness, join the club. I agree. But apparently, the author has found favorable comments from fitness experts and tv talk show hosts that they really work. However, you have to DO IT in order to SEE results. This book guides you into how to do it and what results to expect.
No equipment is necessary for purchase when you first start out. The military’s goals for achieving cardio and strength are implement on days one and two. Remember, 20 minutes is all you have to do. By the end of the first chapter, you have a solid starting point and an encouragement to do it for 30 full days. (I can hear myself panting already!)
Eventually, the author allows you to use the treadmill but he sticks to aligning these workouts to government enforcement standards. Yikes! I’m not sure I want to, nor will I ever, gain muscles at that standard – all I want is to become physically fit.
But, to take the edge off of any anxiety you may be having, the author tells you to only exercise six days a week, to work hard and maintain a standard of discipline and addresses the subject of diet, which is always important to achieve maximum results.
Overall, I think this is a good book for anyone willing to do all this movement.
