No equipment is necessary for purchase when you first start out. The military’s goals for achieving cardio and strength are implement on days one and two. Remember, 20 minutes is all you have to do. By the end of the first chapter, you have a solid starting point and an encouragement to do it for 30 full days. (I can hear myself panting already!)
Eventually, the author allows you to use the treadmill but he sticks to aligning these workouts to government enforcement standards. Yikes! I’m not sure I want to, nor will I ever, gain muscles at that standard – all I want is to become physically fit.
But, to take the edge off of any anxiety you may be having, the author tells you to only exercise six days a week, to work hard and maintain a standard of discipline and addresses the subject of diet, which is always important to achieve maximum results.
Overall, I think this is a good book for anyone willing to do all this movement.
The author provides several different options for your workout--for example "Train like Law Enforcement," "Military Strength," plus also some "insanity" workout plans. I like the author's suggestion of alternating pushups, sit-ups, and running; however, I believe most fitness experts are not suggesting sit-ups, due to pressure on the lower back. There are other core strength exercises that do not stress the lower back as much.
The "100 Workout" looks really challenging--150 jumping jacks, 100 crunchs, 100 squats, then more of the same.
Good Table of Contents, good reference section at the end of the book.
Perhaps my only gripe is with the startling claim, "All you really need to get ripped is 20 minutes of your time." Well, I don't think the typical person will get ripped with such a minimal time investment; but certainly 20 minutes is far better than nothing. There is one section that suggests 40 chin-ups. I doubt that 1 person in 100 can actually do 40 chin-ups.
√ Good book, good ideas--Recommend!
All of the workout routines without a doubt, will help you get that trimmed up body that you are working to get as long as you commit and discipline yourself to the "20 Minute Workout:" as outlined in this book.
I have picked out two of the workouts that are geared toward me personally and I intend to rotate between the two of them in order to maximize and gain the greatest potential and results from both of them.
I have been through Law Enforcement training and I know for a fact, that repetition is the key to success in anything especially working out.
If you take the information provided in this book seriously, you will see serious results!!
