Golfers, don't be fooled by the title of this book Aug. 5 2012
By NickG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is not at all geared toward golfers. It is really the only reason I am writing the review, as I felt very mislead by the title. You could insert any kind of sport (or none at all) and the text would be the same. One would just need photos of people playing other sports. I bought this book because I liked 'Body by Science' so much, co-authored by Little and Doug McGuff. I still prefer Body by Science quite a lot more.

Little shares his views on strength training, diet, and macronutrient composition in the diet. I have been doing the protocol for strength training in Body by Science for over four years and it works quite well. What is described in the book does differ from the earlier book, but is likely equally effective for anyone that is looking maintain their lean mass. However, this protocol would likely take more time than necessary vs. McGuff's protocol. Little also states that one should eat 50% of their calories as carbohydrates. Naturally, this is a controversial opinion in which others have strongly disagreed, and is not necessarily backed by the literature. Some of the claims made in the book are observational, some based on research.

Check out the Conditioning Research blog (see much more research and other opinions on all the subjects covered in the book) and the Body by Science blog first. Like much of the recent research on strength training, weight loss, and nutrition this book challenges much of the conventional wisdom. I happen to agree with much of it, but as someone who loves golf, I feel that the title is quite misleading.
This book has nothing to do with golf fitness March 26 2013
By George Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author pushes his techniques for strength training in a general sense. There is no training guide that is specific for golfers and this is more of a generic "strength" training book. I think the title is very misleading and essentially the author proposes doing some "hold" exercises once per week to build strength. This book may appeal to people who are just starting off with strength training and want to take a minimalism approach and are prepared to try something completely different. I would not recommend this for golfers
