It`s never too late

Fantastic information. I have been weight training since my early 20`s ( I am now 59). The training method of time under tension really does give you the best results. Wished I trained Doug`s way earlier, but it`s never too late as explained in the book. Do yourself a favour, buy the book and start performing the exercises.

Surprising, informative and inspiring

I enjoyed it, and am putting it's subject matter to the test. A lot of detail is very in depth and requires a re-listen for me to fully understand, but as the book moves on, you get to understand the need for all the background information.

This book breaks so many preconceived ideas on experience. Life changing for me.

Excellent Information

I am a senior, almost 70 years old, who has been exercising for many years. The information in this book was life-changing for me. Finding out that I could actually get much better results in a fraction of the time with virtually no risk of injury was nothing short of a revelation. I've only been using the program for a month and I've already noticed positive changes.

Great for average people

The average gym rat / workout warrior will find this book proscribes for too LITTLE exercise. But I feel that many including seniors will be comforted to find that increased fitness can be had in far less than one hour a day. This workout regimen may not work for everyone but it is worth experimenting yourself to see how this works for you.

Best Strength Training Book EVER

I will probably never buy another book on Strength Training because of the research and insights in the this book about the way our bodies grow muscle. A bit light on the quantity of exercises, but I am still giving it 5 Stars because quality is better than quantity.

Can’t wait to try it

OK I really enjoyed the story the narrator was fantastic and the subject matter was sufficiently researched. I think the reason why everybody isn’t doing this is because the workouts are profoundly challenging moment to moment so you really have to set yourself up to do it, have a goal And stick to it

Passionate

Clearly Doug is passionate, knowledgeable, and highly experienced. I strongly supper more rest between workouts than what we normally see. He presents a remembers amount of knowledge in this book. it is another great method to consider and test to see if it helps you reach your personal goal. Always make sure you consult an experienced trainer to verify you are using correct technique on any resistance exercise.

Why did I not know this sooner

This book is a very powerful and life changing look at physical exercise and scientific research. The sad fact is that most people will reject the idea of doing less exercise to make the body work better. But that will be their lost. This programme is the "secret" of health and fitness for all.

Incredible Information

I can only scratch the surface on the valuable information contained within this book. It changes everything we've been told about diet and exercise. It even goes into explaining why things are the way they are like how our body processes energy, what hydration and dehydration does to our bodies, the function of various organs, blood sugar levels and hormones. I have learned more from this book than any health class I have ever been in. I had no idea it would go so deep into understanding how the body works and why it works the way it does. I would even recommend this book for anyone who just wants to lose weight. It explains the importance of strength training and weight loss, but it can really open anyone's eyes who just wants to be healthier without all the diet fads that are out there. This book puts so many other books to shame and is a must read/listen for sure. I just turned 50 and I really wish this book was in my possession 30 years ago because it would have made an enormous difference at an earlier stage in my life. Even at 50 years old it's not too late to sponge up this information and put it to good use.
