5.0 out of 5 stars A good book on Abs that needs a little work to understand it.
This book is a good read if you want to UNDERSTAND how ab training works. It is okay for a beginner but might be better for someone with some experience. Yes its thin and its its padded with irrelevant old photos of pro bodybuilders, yes the training diagrams are helpful but badly labeled, reading it is confusing and it seems to be an expanded article rather than a book...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good explanation of anatomy, not a good variety of exercises
This book does a good job of explaining the anatomy and function of the abdominal & back muscles, but it's hard to follow because you have to flip back and forth to get to the correct diagrams. There isn't a good variety of exercises. Many of the exercises require cable machines that aren't available at the gym I go to. Definitely not a book for doing exercises...

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book on Abs that needs a little work to understand it., 4 July 2006
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
This book is a good read if you want to UNDERSTAND how ab training works. It is okay for a beginner but might be better for someone with some experience. Yes its thin and its its padded with irrelevant old photos of pro bodybuilders, yes the training diagrams are helpful but badly labeled, reading it is confusing and it seems to be an expanded article rather than a book. But once you cut through all that to the information then what this book has to say is informative as with all works by Paul Chek are. Judge it by results not by design layout or ease of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and superbly written!, 16 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
Finally an intelligent book on ab training. Of all the hundreds of books I've read about abdominal training this one surpasses them all by far. It is superbly written and teaches you everything you need to know about ab training as well as how to prevent back pain. The fitness world has been in need of an intelligent source of information for so long and now Paul Chek has joined the elite few. Hopefully we'll get to see him publish more books in the not too distant future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this the same Paul Chek?, 5 Dec 2011
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
It's almost impossible to believe this is the same Paul Chek, turning to the diet pages made me doubt this, I guess Paul's thinking has evolved somewhatever of the last decade or so (that's no criticism mind) but for fans of Paul's work with the C.H.E.K programs, and the CHEK Institute this shows how his training and knowledge has evolved.

I am a huge fan of Mr. Chek's work, but this is not one of his finest moments, and I'm sure it's one he'd rather wasn't still in print when it's put up against the almighty "How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy" along with his amazingly detailed core training programs.

One for collectors if you will.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing little book, 9 July 2011
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
I ordered this book because i thought it's well priced and the author is well known. In short it turned out to be a disappointing "leaflet" full of pictures with awesome abs of professional bodybuilders, read chemically enhanced bodybuilders with a sick body fat % of 6 or lower, if anything this is off putting and annoying so much so that I returned the "leaflet", I think it's the first book I returned to amazon.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
Hasn't read this fully but thought I would get much more book for what I paid and some colour pictures. What the book is useful for is giving some basis information on nutrition, stretching and exercises for the abs. Good book but I think I was expecting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent step-by-step plan for ab development, 25 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Awesome Abs: The Gut-busting Solution for Men and Women (Paperback)
This is the best book I've read on how the abdominals work and how to development them. It begins with a technical section (low interest for me), but then moves to a helpful beginner, intermediate, and advanced level workout routines. That's the best section. Well worth the money!
