Fast Exercise by Michael Mosley

5.0 out of 5 stars Less is more, 28 Mar 2014
I found this book to be excellent. It strips down exercise to its bare essentials - so stripped down that there isn't much to this book. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more to it.

I exercise regularly (5 times a week.) I run (5 kms up to marathon), competed in martial arts tournaments, weight lifting etc. Due to work commitments and having a young family I don't have the luxury of spending hours each day exercising.

This is my third time ordering 10 kg plates from amazon. I have previously ordered York weights. They are perfect for the job and they were cheaper. So they are a better buy.
My postman actually "effed" me out of it when these arrived and asked me to stop ordering weights so I will probably stop after this.
