Awesome book. Takes all the confusing scientific and marketing crap out of work out books. The book gives everyday people the chance to read and understand working out and the gym with out feeling like they have to be professional body builders. Can not wait for the rest of this series to come out and what type of work outs he suggests.~ Review by Kenny M. - Awesome starter book
"Fitness and good health shouldn't be complicated, and they shouldn't cost 30 bucks to buy a book about them . These books are for average people, men and women, who are getting older and finding it more difficult to keep their “girlish figures.” I've tried to include as many tips and tricks as I can in each book that will help my readers get over the obstacles that are increasingly in our path as we age. I’ve never touched a steroid or injected any PED’s into my body. I believe in good food, working hard, working smart, and enjoying good health. It doesn't have to be a full-time job, and it can be a lot of fun." (Old Guy Fitness Series) (Kindle Location 68 -71)
What this book is about:
This is the first of a series of fitness books designed to make working out easier, more effective, and more fun. While the books are tailored for men and women who are advancing in age (the author is 49), the tips in each book will benefit people of all ages. The author, Jim Rodgers, a former college All-American football player, shares workout secrets he learned through over 30 years of trial and error in the weight room, on the athletic field, and at the training table. These books are for regular people who want to look better, feel better, and have more energy and overall good health without spending their entire day in the gym. The lifting and cardio workouts in the books are designed to be 30 minutes or less, and Jim has simplified the workouts so that even beginners will have no problem understanding how to do them.
