Well I bought it and it has a lot of excersizes in it and so far it seems like a no crap, work for what you want kind of book. So far it is really good. I will update you more as I read on.
My girlfriend has the book and loves it.

I just went to check out the book at the book store. I did not buy it, nothing realy special just tells you how to work out with pictures, how many sets, things like that. It also talk's about supplements, nothing that you can't learn hear under the blue tabs.

I kind of like it because not only was great reading for my cardio yesterday but I can take it with me to the gym if I want. I think I am still a rookie and it give me lots of options. I read more last night and it has great relaxation techniques in there too. Of course a lot this information does mirror what is available on this site, but I guess that makes me trust it more.

A little advice if you're just learning exercises---make photocopies of the actual exercise photo and then shrink it to about 35% of its original size. Create your split by body part, glue them on a heavy duty piece of paper, laminate it and off to the gym! You can also wrap it around your water bottle with a rubberband so you don't have too much to carry around. Just a thought!

I actually carry my workout journal with me. I write down every set I have done at what weight, # of sets and reps, etc. I have taped a few new exercises right in my journal. It works like a charm. I never thought about the water bottle idea though. That seem like a great idea!!

Yeah I made a weekly excel sheet to keep track of my weights and reps. It's easier to track progress that way. I plan it out, print it out, and bring it with me to the gym. That way I can make notes as to which weights need to be raised or lowered. But then again I'm going for strength not so much for "pretty", but my lifts are balanced for total body anyway. =)
That water bottle idea is great! I have a binder that I keep it all so I can turn it in at the end of summer.

A binder would probably work better then my little notebook. My note book is looking a bit sad /forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I bought The Body Sculpting Bible for Men when I was just starting into body building. It's a good beginners book. Most of it goes right along with what is on this site.

Did you try out the 14-day Body Sculpting Workout?
07-16-2004, 04:31 PM
No I was lucky enough to have a partner right away who had 2 years worth of weight training experience. I jumped in on his routine. I got the book for the same reason I come to this site to increase my knowledge. The routines in the book look like good routines though. The food and supplementation chapters were really good as well as the descriptions of the exercises listed. The information on this site is more in depth.

In my opinion, there is nothing about fitness and diet that can't be found on ABC. I bought a BodyBuilding for women magazine to read on the plane on the way back from the Caribbean. Got really good HIIT routine but the meals were still based on the "food pyramid".
Really interesting how this works. I went to 24 hrs Fitness the other day to check it out and from all that I have read on this site and select books recommended by my buddies...I knew as much as the personal trainer. Yep, ABC rocks.

*smiles* i agree totally. the window of oppotunity article really helped me understand alot of things.
I have started on the dorian yates fitness and strength program and thanks to ABC i have changed it to suit me and my body style (or lack there of /forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif )
