Taking a healthy, graduated approach, this fitness guide provides a safe plan used by competitive bodybuilders. Starting from square one, the book tackles the challenges and rewards of the lifestyle of a bodybuilder as well as the tools to succeed, and includes detailed information on everything that will come up in the process from potential hazards, distinctions to be made for body type, and a helpful guide of what to expect in the first four weeks. From the respected bodybuilding magazine, this book is the ideal resource for any level of fitness and an interest in building a muscular physique like the champions."
Flex Magazine is a bodybuilding magazine published by American Media, Inc., and founded in 1983. The premier name of bodybuilding has expanded to include local versions across the world, including the UK and Australia, as well as a comprehensive online resource.
One the one hand, each spread contains 'roided out pro bodybuilders, which I find kind of gross. On the other hand, the program itself takes a very reasonable and moderate approach. You read things like "don't train more than four days a week" and "take a week off in between programs." The cutting diet is reasonable: cut processed food and don't get obsessed with counting calories. The cardio for cutting is tempered: don't work too intensely or too long. The routines are tried-and-true. Intensity techniques and (heaven help us) Weider Principles are discussed but are rarely implemented.
The core of this book--the workouts and diets--is excellent. I found the chapter on "The Perfect Rep" to be very helpful. If this book had no pictures I'd give it 5 stars.
