New Rules of Liftingby Lou Schuler
Synopses & Reviews
This supercharged new edition of the super-effective weightlifting exercise program features all-new workouts to build maximum strength
Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgroveandrsquo;s The New Rules of Lifting, The New Rules of Lifting for Women, and The New Rules of Lifting for Abs have revolutionized how people lift weights. The New Rules of Lifting Supercharged is a total reboot of the weightlifting workout book that launched the series in 2006, packing even more power on every page.
Featuring ten completely new workouts for both women and men, Supercharged emphasizes four major movements that do the most to change the way your body looks, feels, and performs: squat, deadlift, push, and pull. In addition, Cosgroveandrsquo;s updated total-body workout program improves core strength, mobility, flexibility, balance, endurance, and athleticism . . . all in just three hours a week of exercise.
Another big change from the original New Rules of Lifting is a self-customized workout system. Readers can choose their own exercises from a menu for each movement category, allowing beginner and advanced lifters to get tremendous results from the same basic plan. Each workout ends with a andldquo;finisherandrdquo;andmdash;five to ten minutes of fun but high-effort drills such as complexes, intervals, and density training, with the choice of the readerandrsquo;s favorite exercises. The ultimate guide to total-body strengthening, this supercharged edition of The New Rules of Lifting will lift readers to stratospheric results.
A customizable fitness program created for middle aged adults who want to lose weight, revitalize energy, and build habits for increased longevity.
Todayandrsquo;s exercising adults are caught in a bind: Those who take it seriously and work out aggressively can end up with chronic aches and injuries because they donandrsquo;t know how to adjust their programs as they get older. And those who take it easy may end up with overfed, underdeveloped, injury-prone bodies.
Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove, fitness experts and authors of The New Rules of Lifting series, know all too well that these readers need a program of their own. Thatandrsquo;s because they are just like these readers. So they set out to create a new template for exercise, one that delivers real results but is flexible enough to accommodate individual limitations.
The New Rules of Lifting for Life offers a six-month plan that integrates total-body strength, endurance, mobility, balance, coordination, and athleticism. The workouts are challenging and, in conjunction with the suggested diet modifications, will help readers change the way their bodies look, feel, and perform. And not just temporarilyandmdash; The New Rules of Lifting for Life will allow you to enjoy productive and pain-free workouts for many years to come.
Ten unique programs for fat loss, muscle gain, and strength improvement for beginners and elite lifters.
Want to get more out of your workout and spend less time in the gym? Many guys devote so many hours to lifting weight yet end up with so little to show for it. In many cases, the problem is simple: They aren’t doing exercises based on the movements their bodies were designed to do. Six basic movements—the squat, deadlift, lunge, push, pull, and twist—use all of the body’s major muscles. And, more important, they use those muscles in coordinated action, the way they were designed to work.
The New Rules of Lifting, now in paperback and with more than one hundred photographs, gives you more than a year’s worth of workouts based on these six basic movements. Whether you’re a beginner, an experienced lifter looking for new challenges, or anything in between, you can mix and match the workouts to help you get bigger, stronger, and leaner. In addition, the comprehensive nutritional information provided makes The New Rules of Lifting a complete guide to reaching all your goals.
If you aren’t using The New Rules of Lifting, you aren’t getting the best possible results.
