I'm in pretty great shape, but some of these exercises are brutal (advanced variations). This is for people who are up for a challenge! I'm not sure beginners (couch potato level) would get much benefit, but if you are already doing a few pushups, there are lots of ideas to inspire you to go further. Some pretty surprising variations.

Loved the book so much i bought it and the CD. I am 47 years old, been at it 2 months now and getting leaner and more toned. Sensible, achievable and definitely tough enough for every level. Based on the best available science and non gimmicky nutrition, it is well worth the read

I love the workouts and they're not boring. I got the Android app too and it compliments the book very well because it has timers built in and saves your workout history. Even though the app does give you descriptions of the exercises, many of them have more details in the book. I might just end up buying the book.

Cover's every dimension of fitness for every level of performance. A great resource for health and fitness. Think of the thousands you'll save by not going to a gym...
