Format: Paperback
The book presents a holistic approach to fitness, covering mindset, training, nutrition and rest. Together, the discussion of all of these aspects in a single book provides excellent guidance to your workouts.

I am especially fond of the description of the body sculpting exercises. Each description goes into the details of the proper alignment, technique and form. Even though the book describes a very large set of exercises for the legs, back, chest, biceps, triceps, shoulders and abdominals, the descriptions are always fresh, detailed, and give useful hints on how to perform each exercise as to get maximum gain. I have truly learned from them.

The authors propose their 14-day bodysculpting workout, and a similar periodic scheme for nutrition. I personally find this proposal innovative, and have made good use of the many illustrative workout schemes.

The quality of writing is excellent. Moreover, a DVD is included which presents a summary of the main contributions of this book, and a live demonstration of many of the exercises.

This book can be used as a reference book (for getting back to the detailed discussions of exercises to ensure you are performing them accurately). It also serves as an introduction to an appropriate nutrition plan.

I have recommended this book personally to friends, and encourage you to have a closer look in case you want to get the most of your investments in a well-shaped body.

I've been working out and playing sport for many years now and as such have taken great interest in training techniques.
This book might prove useful to someone who has never stepped inside a gym in their life, though I doubt it! The work out exercises are all very basic (squats, bench press, DB curl), with nothing to add variety if you are already a frequent gym attendee.
Whilst these exercises might be good for the complete novice, the photographs illustrating the moves are laughably amateur, and completely un-inspirational, which, for most novices, is probably as necessary as basic nutrition and work out exercises. The layout of the book is drab and actively works against the reader spending any time trying to discover any worthwhile information from its pages. I'm sure the nutrition section is fine, unfortunately, I wasn't paying too much attention by then!!!
Without doubt, THE most un-inspirational physical fitness book I have had the displeasure of opening. I would think that the trades' description act should be invoked against the title!!

I have been training on and off for about 5 years now. I bought the book because I thought it would help me get into peak physical shape and help me sculpt my body. Initially it worked wonders for me, however I have to say that performing the same exercises every second session has become a bit boring. It would have added more value to the book if they had two or three alternative exercise plans to follow. I also found it very difficult to follow the eating plan as all the quantities are in ounces, perhaps a conversion to grams would have been appropriate.
All in all though I have to admit that I have seen results that I had not been able to achieve before. This book is good to start off with and needs to be followed up with another book, which takes your results to the next level.

The book is very understandable if you're not a total rookie, it has a load of useful information regarding nutrition and especially training exercises.
This isn't the book which you read and then throw away, you can always look
for how a certain exercise is done properly, how to create your own protein based diet and even a dvd with exercises is attached.
I recommend!
