You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises
You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and clear., 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is very well written and presented meaning the 150+ exercises are easy to follow. This has everything for the beginner to those seeking more advanced exercises. It provides additional information on how to build-up to the 'biggies' of body weight exercises like the hand-stand and one-handed press up amongst others which provides good motivation. The suggested exercise programmes weren't something I dabbled with as I was at a intermediate level when I got the book so I took the advice and developed my own work-outs from the featured exercises which has worked for me very well. Generally, this book has improved my knowledge of how my body works and what exercises and positions give me the optimum workout for particular muscle groups. The exercises are grouped into muscle group sections and are clearly marked with level of difficulty and what particular muscles will be activated. There are also suggestions for most of them of how to make them easier if you're a beginner and also how to 'take them up a notch' as the book says. Dietary advice and warming-up methods are also included. Highly motivational and recommended - and think of the money you'll save on gym memberships

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for developing an interest in the alphabet for my boys., 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Superhero ABC (Paperback)
Fun, beautifully drawn and well-though out this is an ever-returning favourite to the bedtime reading. From a British dad's perspective it's written and drawn by an American and therefore contains Americanisms but these are few and far between and unless you are seriously opposed to this this is in no way a problem! It is a wonderful way to develop my 4 and 6 six year old boy's interest in the alphabet and is a fun way to do so for the parents as well.

This review is from: Still Bill (Vinyl)
Very swift delivery and professional service. The LP itself was for a friend but having had the privilege to listen to the album both previously and in this format I would simply say it is excellent and must be listened to

5.0 out of 5 stars Lego do it again!, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the first Lego game my 4 and 6 year old boys tried and with initial guidance from me were able to play independently. The game includes many challenges that develop problem-solving skills and the Star Wars theme makes this very enjoyable. Despite this being a Star Wars game the fact that it is Lego-based means that the potential violence of slaying enemies with lightsabers, guns and bombs is well done and the mini-figures break into blocks. Very well made and a vast game (all six films are included with six levels per film and umpteen mini-challenges as well make this very good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set., 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My boys who despite being younger than the suggested ages for Hero Factory loved this set (and their dad did too!) The motorbike may require adult help but it's well worth it as it adds an extra dimension to the imaginative play. The motorbike can have any (or at least most) of the other figures (as well as their own creations) which is also a nice touch. Overall, a great set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and looks the part, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harry Potter Costume Kit (Toy)
Great dress-up set this one. Well-made and durable enough to take the continuing hours of play that my 6 year old has had in it. In the set I got, the Golden Snitch wasn't in it but there was a wand instead. This may be worth noting although it wasn't a problem as it meant my four year old son could join in as I'd bought another wand separately. Very quick delivery as well. Very pleased overall, but, as I said if the golden snitch is essential perhaps clarify with the company beforehand...

This review is from: Harry Potter Wand (Toy)
This is a great toy that kept my 6 year old son occupied for hours - always worth an extra star! Plastic, but made to look realisitc and hardy enough to take inevitable knocks etc during play. Really great at encouraging imaginative play. Very swift delivery too.
