  • A great read.

    By oWisdom
    The book was very informative and answered all my question I didn’t know I had. I’ve been working out for a couple of years now. This really refreshed my mind and got me in the right track again.
  • Science and Planning

    By Meep de Vop
    Great scientific explanation of biological circumstances. Great layouts for planning workouts by showing established routines. The only thing I disliked was that the workouts labeled as meant for beginners don’t actually seem to be. I can’t imagine do a pull-up as a beginner, much less multiple sets of them. So you’ll have to find newbie-er workouts than the ones provided if you don’t feel like you can survive 10 pull-ups.
  • The Title is Innacurate

    By Marv.0
    An essay more of opinion, instead of a look at the evidence-based science of human physiology. If it gets someone moving, then it's brilliant.
  • Basic info

    By Sparky25029
    It has some good basic information if you're a beginner.
  • Solid book

  • Corrections

    By Bob Rossy
    I found a decent amount of grammatical errors as I was reading the book. It kind of bothered me a bit. Other than that, solid book.
