This was my first For Dummies book and I am thrilled that this is the one I picked. For one, I am a HUGE fan of Pat Flynn which was why I decided to give this book a go. Two, I am turning 45 in 3 days and I was looking for something to help me with my strength. Don’t get me wrong, I am no stranger to weightlifting or kettlebells. In fact I am a retired professional bodybuilder. All the years of doing this sport though has left me with numerous injuries. Amazingly, kettlebells don’t seem to aggravate them as much. So I am giving up the gym and turning soley to the kettlebell and bodyweight exercises in this book to help me regain strength and mobility as I go into tjis new chapter of my life. Starting with the 90 day program in their book. I will also be following the Paleo diet along with it. Instead of being depressed at getting older and retiring from the sport that I love, I have found a new enthusiasm in this book.
If I had to use one work to describe Paleo Workouts for Dummies it would be comprehensive. The book first explains about fitness and strength and why they are important parts to a healthy lifestyle. You are then taken step by step through exercises using body weight and my favorite Kettlebells in a safe effective fashion. You are shown beginner to advanced exercises and each exercise is broken down for you step by step. The book also gives links to videos where you can see the exercises performed. My favorite chapters in the book are 10 and 11. Chapter 10 explains how you can burn fat using easy to understand language. Chapter 11 explains how you can put together your own successful program, but you don’t have to if you choose, because the book is filled with great workouts including a 21 and 90 day challenge that is laid out for you. All you have to do is make the commitment to do the work. Of course as many of us know it’s not just what you do in the gym, but nutrition plays a key major role in yorur success and the Paloe eating plan is laid out letting explaining why you eat certain foods at different times and the things you need to do to be successful. This book is a must have for anyone looking to transform their body by losing body fat and building lean muscle. As I write this review I’m three weeks into a 30 day Metabolic Challenge that Pat put together and have noticed great benefits in body composition and general health using the exercises, workouts and eating plan that is covered in the book. Get this book, you will not be disappointed. Tom LaCoppola
I’ve heard before that learning doesn’t happen unless behavior is changed. Well, I’ve read a lot of nutrition and exercise books where I gained knowledge but I didn’t learn anything. Paleo Workouts isn’t one of them! I learned so much from cover to cover. Whether you are a beginner or advanced fitness person, you can glean good wisdom from this book and more importantly, put it to work in your own life. For me, the hardest part was cleaning my diet per the principles in this book. And, once I did that, the pounds just melted away. I can’t speak highly enough about both authors. If you visit their individual websites (which are referenced in the book), you will be exposed to even more quality content on how to change your life with the paleo lifestyle (and more).
