5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome fitness resource., 30 July 2013
This review is from: Yoga for Regular Guys: The Best Damn Workout on the Planet! (Kindle Edition)
Some books have an immediate impact on your life. It changes your way of thinking, your goals, and your focus. This is one of those books. I started implementing stuff from the book before finishing it. I also started back at the beginning and reread it straight through a second time. Fortunately I happened upon the book by chance. My first introduction to Yoga with Diamond Dallas Page was a Facebook share of the video 'Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!' It really blew me away. So I immediately started looking into DDP Yoga. I found out that it started with a book. And being a bibliophile I had to check out the book. Here is the history of the progression of YRG to DDP Yoga.

Timeline:
2005 - Yoga For Regular Guys - Published in Paper Back
2006 - YRG Yoga for Regular Guys 3 DVD Set

Fortunately the book had just been republished as an eBook. So I got a copy and started read and rereading. I have been back and forth through the book a number of times in a short time. The book has a hilarious forward by Rob Zombie. The sections in the book are:

INDEX

The book is an incredible resource for people wanting to make lifestyle changes. If you're a couch potato you can start, if you're active you can take it to the next level, if you're an athlete it will only help improve your game and performance! At the time of writing this I have been doing Yoga with DDP intermittently for 2 months and then every day for 20 days, I am down 17lbs and feel better than I have in a long time. In that time my shoulder that has bothered me off and on for years because of a torn rotator cuff is better than it has ever been. My mood and energy is way up. And I have talked a number of people into giving it a try. So far they have all loved it.

DDP states that he wrote the book to help regular guys and regular gals. Part of the way he does that is he encourages you to set goals using SMACK!

S: SPECIFY
M: MONITOR
A: ACHIEVE
C: CHOOSE
K: KEEP IT GOING

He also encourages you to join Team DDP Yoga, there you will find a community of supportive, likeminded people. You can read success stories, join groups and forums, and there is a continuous online life chat on the go. The book features 15 people showing the moves, many of the moves are in the book more than once in different routines and programs, often with different people showing them. These 15 people range from retired military, to musicians. All kinds of people have seen improvement in their health and life through following DDP's programs. Musicians, retired wrestlers, pro wrestlers, pro ball players, and regular guys and gals like me and you!

If you read this book and apply only some of it you will have achieved positive changes in your life. If you apply most of it, who knows the amazing changes you can achieve, and through that the impact and influence you can have on friends and family through your transformation! Also if you read this book your likely to want to progress and move forward with the DVD's you can get at DDP Yoga.
