extremely satisfied customer,
This review is from: The "Men's Health" Big Book of Exercises (Paperback)
This is exactly what I wanted and more! The only disadvantage is that I will never need (/have an excuse) to buy another overpriced copy of Mens Health at the train station ever again! This book has got all the practical stuff you'd ever get in a thousand years of Mens Health magazine minus all the marketing waffle.
Mainly what I wanted it for is the large full page pictures and explanations of how to do the moves, and 650ish of them, so I can keep varying it so I don't get bored.
In addition, which I wasn't expecting but is absolutely brilliant, it's got sections on the principles of how to design your own workout routine so you can keep it balanced and optimally effective, and some example sequences.
My favourite thing about the book is that doesn't at all have the usual MH pretentious style and promotion of buying endlessly more fancy stuff -e.g. in the intro where he's talking about gear that's essential vs. extra, he makes the obvious point that a swiss ball works almost as well as an incline bench and is much less expensive and far more convenient at home.
I think this book is going to get used to death and passed onto my kids! :-)
