5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book by an amazing trainer Dec 1 2010
By Myatt Murphy - Published on
As someone who has penned several fitness books (including the Ultimate Dumbbell Guide and The Body You Want in the Time You Have) and has written about exercise for 17 years, I can say without question that Pat is one of the true--and few--pioneers in the 'no-spin, tell it like it is' approach to fitness and exercise. I rarely praise celebrity trainers because many that are 'known' really aren't as wise when it comes to fitness...they are simply admired for their client list. In Pat's case, there's a reason A-listers turn to him...his methods are sound, true and effective. Keep up the great work Pat... and thank you for producing one of the few books out there that definitely delivers the results that a reader would hope to expect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, easy to follow exercise book May 5 2011
By M. Lata - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy the simplicity of the exercises in this book. The author understands how to best activate your muscles with these 5 exercises but that doesn't mean you are going to have an easy workout! I'm sore after each workout no matter how many times I do them, which is a sign of using all different muscle groups to me. The workouts in the back of the book provide a good structure and variations are provided for different levels. I find the sample exercise programs a little difficult to understand and use at the gym as a "workbook". I usually have to bring something with me that is smaller to remember the workouts/reps. Overall a great buy for me as a moderate level fitness person.

4.0 out of 5 stars strength training made simple and fun Oct. 22 2012
By Gorak - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
People may not give this book the credit it deserves because on the shelf it looks like any number of generic workout '6 minute abs' books...lots of high rez photos and not a lot of text. However, this book is really clever in showing what types of exercises are important for overall health and strength (the 5 essentials) and shows some simple ways to program these as well. But I think the highlight is how it shows the many different ways you can do these exercises - with barbells, kettlebells, bodyweight, swiss balls, etc - allowing you to create different versions of the '5 essentials' based on what you've got to use and what feels 'fun' to you. A really good resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome book Dec 3 2012
By E. C. Hart - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Has many great exercises and helps the reader to know which muscles are being used. Superior illustrations to comparable books. Good resource to figure out which exercises might help strengthen and individual's particular weaknesses. Probably contains exercises that are compatible with crossfit. Also, many of them can be done at home.
