1.0 out of 5 stars Some pain, no gain, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 15 Home Workouts for a Toned Body. For Improved Fitness with Workout Routines that WORK: Home Workout Exercises to do at Home To Tone, Lose Fat, Gain Muscle, and Weight Loss. (Kindle Edition)
If this had been the prep talk of a fitness instructor in front of his new gym recruits it probably would have been just about okay. As a serious and, in appearance at least, professional introduction cum manual to body toning and weight training it is a waste of time.

The "15 home workouts" of the title are, in fact, simply 15 exercises for men (7) and women (8). There is barely one workout here, let alone 15. That the author doesn't know the difference between workout, i.e. an exercise session, and individual exercises is not exactly confidence inspiring but, frankly, it is just one of many things wrong with this very short, very superficial book. There is absolutely nothing new about this random selection of exercises which can be found in pretty much any exercise guide, though usually better described and illustrated. The advise on toning, weight training, food et al is generic at best and so general to be practically useless. To make matters worse, the writing itself is painfully amateurish and shows little grasp of the English language. I am fully aware that this is a workout manual, not a work of literature but, even so, it should at the very least be readable - "one should exercise aggressively" might sound classy but "you" would have been far more appropriate throughout and, always remember, "proof reading" is the "stretching" of writing, essential and indispensible for a successful outcome.

There are so many workout manuals out there, most of them much more informative, for sure. Even as a free Kindle download this "book" should be avoided.
