You've seen the ripped and chisled torsos gracing virtually each and every issue of Men's Health Magazine at the newsstands on your way to the donut and coffee cart each morning. Now find out just how it's done. Unfortunately, there's no magical way to a slimmer waist or well-defined abdominal muscles but there is a man who can tell you the most efficient and reliable way to do it. Fitness guru and trainer Kurt Brungardt, author of "3-Minute Abs" and "The Complete Book of Abs" finally gets it right in this perfectly sized, concisely written book on building a strong mid-section. It's not a book about turning into a hunk from a 2-Xist underwear ad in under six weeks. What it is, however, is a book about adjusting your lifestly into one which creates the best possible environment for you to implement a regular and conscious program of healthy eating, excercising and living. Kurt also explains the physiology and psychology behind ab muscle building and fitness training. With a healthy attitude in place, the excercises and detailed programs in the book become potent tools for quickly building strong, defined ab muscles. Even after the first week, the excercises begin deeply working all of the right mucles...and oh how you feel it. But Kurt encourages you to go beyond the pain (discussing the advantages of "good pain" versus "bad pain") by teaching you how to visualize the muscle groups being worked and how they grow stronger. Don't waste your time or money on the others. None will compare in outlining a complete program with superb visual representations and frank, "tell-it-like-it-is" discussions on workouts, diet and living. This IS simply the finest book on ab training to buy.
