Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you're one of the millions who are just too busy to get in shape, or think that keeping fit takes endless hours in the gym and depressing diets, we have good news and bad news. The good news: Now you can get in the best shape of your life by working out 2O minutes, once a week, and following the generous eating rules in a program called Power-of-10. The bad news? You've just lost your last excuse!

Power-of-10 is a full-blown fitness revolution-based on a remarkably advanced yet simple discovery: By lifting weights in a series of ultra-slow movements that last 10 seconds each, you can stimulate lean muscle formation far more efficiently and safely than regular weight lifting or aerobics. Together with a healthy nutrition plan and a focus on rest and recovery, Power-of-10 is so effective that as little as one 20-minute workout per week is enough to build muscle, burn fat, and improve cardiovascular health at any age. No wonder people find it hard to believe, Until they try their first workout!

Best of all, you're about to see why Power-of-10 expert Adam Zickerman is so popular with his clients. He makes it surprisingly fun! Adam guides you step-by-step with workouts for every major muscle group using machines or free weights at the gym, at home, or when you're on the road.

Backed by more than twenty years of research, Power-of-10 principles are changing the way America gets in shape. So hang on to your "healthy skepticism." Let Adam show you Power-of-10. And watch it turn to just plain "healthy."

Synopsis:

Recommends a regime of resistance training exercises, diet, and rest that can prove effective yet is simple enough that people who are not fitness buffs will stick with it.

Synopsis:

The Once–A–Week Slow Motion Fitness Revolution.

Power of 10 seems to contradict nearly everything we're accustomed to hearing about exercise. Forget hours on the treadmill, and forget daily visits to the gym. This new program offers 20–minute workout sessions once or twice per week, with an alluring emphasis on rest and recovery on your days off. The principle behind Power of 10 is simple: by lifting weights in slow motion, making each rep last 20 seconds (10 seconds lifting and 10 seconds lowering) instead of the typical 7 seconds, you can maximise muscle transformation. The short workouts are so effective that your body will need days to recover and repair properly. Studies have shown that such routines can increase lean body mass, help burn calories, and prevent cardiovascular disease more efficiently than aerobic exercise alone. Fitness expert Adam Zickerman will present the science behind the growing movement, and back up his theories with recent results from such reputable sources as the American Heart Association.
