Description

From an elite Special Operations physical trainer, an ingeniously simple, rapid-results, do-anywhere program for getting into amazing shape
 
For men and women of all athletic abilities!

 
As the demand for Special Operations military forces has grown over the last decade, elite trainer Mark Lauren has been at the front lines of preparing nearly one thousand soldiers, getting them lean and strong in record time. Now, for regular Joes and Janes, he shares the secret to his amazingly effective regimen—simple exercises that require nothing more than the resistance of your own bodyweight to help you reach the pinnacle of fitness and look better than ever before.

Armed with Mark Lauren’s motivation techniques, expert training, and nutrition advice, you’ll see rapid results by working out just thirty minutes a day, four times a week—whether in your living room, yard, garage, hotel room, or office. Lauren’s exercises build more metabolism-enhancing muscle than weightlifting, burn more fat than aerobics, and are safer than both, since bodyweight exercises develop balance and stability and therefore help prevent injuries. Choose your workout level—Basic, 1st Class, Master Class,and Chief Class—and get started, following the clear instructions for 125 exercises that work every muscle from your neck to your ankles. Forget about gym memberships, free weights, and infomercial contraptions. They are all poor substitutes for the world’s most advanced fitness machine, the one thing you are never without: your own body.

Perfect!

I've been in a rut and knew what I was doing was taking me down the wrong road. I love being able to use my own body weight and improvise rather than being tied to a gym (which I'm still a member of because it's the only way I can workout without my toddlers climbing in me ;) ). This program enables me to do it anywhere in short time periods. I highly recommend it.

Brilliant!

This is a must read for anyone who wants to get their body in shape, but not just for visually aesthetic purposes. Fitness without function is virtually useless in everyday life, and his programs are designed around getting your body in shape, but actually using it on a regular basis. It's easy to read, well put together, and by using little blurbs about anything from fitness studies to the effectiveness of cardiovascular exercise for cardiovascular endurance (the result will surprise the hell out of you) the authors keep you interested and ready for more. I start soon. Hooyah!

Absolutely amazing!

I have recently lost 50 lbs, but found myself struggling with recomposition and finding the time to work out. I was frustrated by not having a spotter at the gym. And never really feeling like I was making any real gains. This books has not only given me the tools to revamp my workouts, the mobile app with the videos is an invaluable supplement. Bravo tutti Mark Lauren and crew...this has changed my life.
