I really dislike this book Every question you ve ever had about strength training has a very specific non answer You want to know how many grams of protein to eat daily Well, let s follow a specific formula and then point out how improbable it will be to follow You want to know how many calories to eat Again, let s do some math, but then quote some studies that prove the math is inaccurate Yay So now you re ready for a workout Let s give you a grid to follow with really basic instructions that fail to describe what it actually means and involves using equipment you won t have in your home Win win You re a woman, after all, and isn t it nice we gave you a taste of our manly program And, don t forget, the way you ve been doing things in the past has been all wrong but this new program corrects all your inade This didn t work quite as well for me as the NROL for Women I found I really need to have all the exercises laid out for me ahead of time instead of being left to my own devices to pick, like in the last few workouts I also found this less adaptable to working out at home. Using these workout plans at my own pace I just completed this 9 month program and it was one of the most amazing things I ve ever done I learned so much along the way Unlike most women, I have the tendency to bulk up and I am not one to diet so I did get a little noticeably bigger in places, particularly because I didn t do cardio workouts they always feel like a waste of time That said I am SO pleased with how I look and feel I have been lifting sort of aimlessly for almost 20 years and I ve been Strong and fit but never with any clear goals As a working mom, it was SO MOTIVATING to have this program all clearly laid out for me All I had to do was show up and workout No time waster wandering around the gym trying to decide what to do. When I started this routine I was at my crappy Planet Fitness which doesnt have TRX or adjustable barbells so that was one downside But now that I am done, have joined a better gym, and am f ↠´ Strong ↠´ No nonsense, good workouts, and good advice in the pages of this book I am currently in the beginning stages of the program, on my way to working all the way up till the final workouts tl dr This book isn t for me, but it might be for someone else. This book was a recommendation from Kelly Coffey of Strong Coffey I know her in real life and she is the real deal Knowing that it s going to be near impossible to book time in January with the trainers at my gym, I figured I d give this book a try to learn about lifting. The problem isn t with the book I m the type of person that needs someone to show me how to do the thing Learning a new game You read the directions and explain as we go. Looking at pictures of exercising and then replicating them isn t going to work for me I need someone there to explain how to move and where to adjust I can t position myself to look in the mirror to see if it matches what I think was in the book. I can totally see this book being someone else s bible thoug This is another Strong workout program by Lou Schuler, featuring his usual sensible advice and solid programme It isn t gimmicky and it doesn t try to impress you with any sort of special secrets to getting Strong and fit, rather it focuses on fairly timeless advice as in his other books, with a few tweaks here and there to incorporate updated evidence on weight lifting The book is amazing value for money, and will provide programming for about a year if followed as written I have been lifting weights for 22 years, and I still found the programme to be good, although I would say that I prefer a bit volume I followed the author s advice and started at the beginning, even though I am an advanced lifter, and because I was also training for half marathons, it was actually a good break and a reminder to focus on form I would have preferre great, doing it now, a little derivative of other books in the series by this point, but I appreciate the fun new exercises. I really enjoyed everything through section 6 7 10 give me pause, because going to 10 RPE seems like a set up for injury, which would defeat the purpose of both this book and me getting back into lifting after tearing my labrum in my shoulder I decided to stop the program after the first week of level 7, if had a training partner and didn t have a history of overuse injuries, perhaps I d be less cautious I also took a look at myself and the training I like to do, and the DOMS that comes with levels 7 10 can really negatively impact my quality of life. I do love Shuler and Crosgrove and coming back from an injury, I appreciate both their stories, Alwyn s especially, if they can do it, I can too
