No piece of exercise equipment is more convenient, reliable, versatile and effective at building lean muscle and boosting post-workout metabolic rate than the venerable dumbbell and its cousins the kettlebell and sandbag. Together, these are the tools that will reshape the way we think about fitness and this book will stand as the definitive guide to targeting the key muscles that men and women want to develop and tone. The beauty of these tools is that they are simple, inexpensive, and can be used in a small space so readers can exercise in the convenience of their homes. Most important is that they allow the freedom to use a full range of motion, unlike the rigid, limiting structure of weight machines. No longer restrained by the typical up/down motion of barbells and machines, readers can become strong in any direction. And sanctioned by Men's Health, this book demonstrates with large color photos more than 150 strength exercises that incorporate the three key movements--pushing, pulling, and swinging--that make up the perfect full-range-of-motion workout. Because it emphasizes building functional strength for real-world application and total-body fitness Men's Health Push, Pull, Swing will appeal to beginners as well as fitness buffs, especially those who enjoy CrossFit style workouts.

Men s Health Workout War

Competition motivates men. And scientific research proves that competition and rewards motivate people to stick to exercise and diets. Former Los Angeles Lakers strength coach Jim Cotta harnesses men's passion for one-upmanship with an innovative get-in-shape program in Men's Health Workout War. This book features a highly effective, 60-day exercise and diet program broken up into quarters and an overtime round. The unique hook is that it makes the fitness instruction much more effective by turning it into a friendly weight-loss war that uses locker-room-style trash talking and cash prizes to drive dramatic results. Basketball great Shaquille O'Neal, who penned the book's foreword, used a "shirts off" competition against Charles Barkley on national television to spur his own body transformation, and Cotta was his weight-loss coach. That gave Cotta the idea to build a blueprint for grassroots fitness competitions, complete with multiple contest formats and advice on using social media to build excitement.

Even seasoned lifters can realize a 5 percent increase in strength in the first few weeks. And in 12 weeks, you can boost your overall strength by up to 38 percent. - Build power and stamina. Increase your one-rep max in your core lifts by as much as 30 percent. - Shed fat fast. Burn off up to 10 pounds of body fat, losing up to 2 pounds of fat per week.
