This review is from: The Complete Book of Pilates for Men: The Lifetime Plan for Strength, Power & Peak Performance (Paperback)
Daniel Lyons' book is clearly written and includes all Pilates mat work from beginner to advanced. As such, if you are interested in doing Pilates at home (no equipment needed), then this book is all you need!

Lyons explains that Jospeh Pilates was a boxer, and that his early clients were boxers and wrestlers. Pilates was created for men, but through the fact that dancers have found it to be so good has become a women-dominated exercise system.

The boxer/wrestler connection is actually easy to see with excercises including wrestlers neck bridges, push ups, etc.

This book is also beautifully illustrated with line drawings of the author performing each movement. Clear, detailed and succint.

If you want to strengthen your core and change your entire body in a few weeks, get this book!
