After heading to college for my first semester and finding it hard to walk to the gym everyday to lift weights, I bought this book, with a few laughs from my friends seeing that it has that early 90's look to it. I followed the weight liftin section of the book and found that it was a GREAT program!!! Even though on paper, it looks like using free weights in your dorm room is never going to do much, it did more than my years spent at the gym!!! I finally have arm muscles!!! Even afer 3 months of following this weight lifting plan, I can still feel it after a workout, my muscles are fatigued and still firming up!!! Someone recently asked me about what i advice would i give an in-coming freshman and i said it would be to buy this book!!! Despite it's appearance, it's definately worth every cent i spent on it!!! Buy it NOW

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent! June 2 2002
Format:Paperback
I bought this book 7 years ago, soon after I'd graduated from college. I was repaying student loan debt and couldn't afford a gym membership. Plus, I was living in a tiny studio apartment so an at-home workout regimen capable of being done in a tiny space was important. A small area of floorspace, a chair, and two dumbbells were the only required equipment.
The best part is that this program works! I saw improvements in my body even as early as the second week... and from there it just kept getting better.
This book contains good, solid advice. As a result, I find myself occasionally pulling this book off the shelf to refresh my memory about certain exercises or fitness expectations.
The College Dorm Workout qualifies as one of the most useful books I've ever bought.

This book not only helped me to lost over 40 pounds, but taught me how to keep it off. Four years later, I still refer back to the book frequently for advice on proper form, eating right, and also for a little inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST fitness book ever!! June 4 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I give this book five stars . . . it deserves it!! It was interesting, easy to comprehend and well organized. After careful examination of an unlimited suppy of other health and fitness books, I realized this book had basic underlying techniques that gave me a solid foundation for a TOTAL fitness program. This book was so impressive I shared the new info with all of my friends. They love it also!! It gives all of us the confidence to go into the gym and actually know what we are doing. I sincerely recommend this book to anyone regardless if they are in their college years or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect guide for beginners June 2 1999

If your living space is small and cluttered and you don't have the money for gym membership, this book tells you how to design a weightlifting routine that works. I tried it and it worked! I began weightlifting in my small dorm room using this book as my guide. Now that I have graduated from college and have a gym membership, I still go back to this book on occasions for advice on dumbbell exercises.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction to Weight Lifting Feb. 28 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book a few years back just after I had left college, and even though I do a slightly different workout now, I still use most of the exercises in it. This book was a lifesaver, as I needed it to gain weight (I had starved myself for quite some time until this point), and yet I didn't want to just get up to my normal weight and be all flab (genetics gave me a natural body type of a Hungarian peasant woman. Working out is a must for me, or else!). I wasn't overly sore from working out using this book, and I got the results that I wanted in about 6 weeks.
My chief complaint is the illustration of the squats. I have since learned that Marthe bends her knees much too far in the photo; *never* bend your knees further than 90 degrees. I too, also hope that a future edition will be spiral bound so that novice exercisers can hold the book open while they work out.
The nutritional advice is good for the weeks that you're dieting, although I have found that you may have to slightly increase the amount of protein you take in daily after your reach your goal weight to keep your muscular body looking well, muscular.
Enjoy!
