Big Book of Exercises
Sorry folks, it’s been a hectic week at CP, and my blogging has been less than exemplary. I’m headed back to NY this weekend for an early family Christmas get together, and promise I’ll be back next week with regular content.
In the meantime, Adam Campbell, fitness editor for both Men’s Health and Women’s Health magazine respectively, just sent me an e-mail this morning noting that both of his books, The Men’s Health Big Book of Exercises and Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises both go on sale this Tuesday, December 22nd.
You can pre-order you copies on Amazon.com today (linked above), but they’ll also be available next week anywhere books are sold- Barnes and Nobles, Borders, etc. As you can see, I wasn’t asked to be on the cover, but I was fortunate enough to be asked to contribute to the “core” section of both books (ahem, page 336).
As it is, each book is jam packed with pictures and descriptions of every exercise you can imagine, as well as detailed programs written by the likes of Alwyn Cosgrove, Rachel Cosgrove, Bill Hartman, Joe Dowdell, Valerie Waters, and Mike Boyle, to name a few. Highlights include:
- Boost Your Bench Press 50 lbs in 8 Weeks
- Triple Your Chin-Ups
- The Scrawny to Brawny Workout
- The Wedding Workout
- The Bikini Ready Workout
What’s more, there’s also sections detailing the nutritional side of things as well. Namely, The 8 Healthiest Foods You Aren’t Eating , 25 Super Snacks That Keep You Lean and Fit, and the Biggest Nutritional Lies- Exposed!.
Needless to say, Adam went balls to wall with these books, with no stone left un-turned. Whether you’re a personal trainer, strength coach, or just a fitness enthusiast in general, these books would be an awesome additional to your library.
Now excuse me while I go destroy the back of my pants watching Avatar.
