It’s time live a healthy life while doing your daily activities. This time, we review 4 excellent books to read.
Pounds and Inches Away
The book itself is written by Dr Simeons while studying about human chorionic gonadotropin and creating HCG diet. While HCG drops are still the #1 choice to use by most people for losing weight, the HCG diet method would not be that very effective without accompanied by 500 calories restriction. If you are serious about implementing the diet, we recommend you to read the book.
Denise Austin: Hit the Spot – Core Complete
Take This Book to Work – Denise Austin, one of the most well-known fitness instructors, recently debuted the Hit the Spot book workout series. And as you may have guessed, “the spot” that Core Complete is trying to hit is the core — an area we often ignore in our quests for sexy legs or toned arms. Core Complete is designed to be used with a stability ball (the big beach ball-like objects you see in all gyms nowadays). Like most of Austin’s books, Core Complete is great at giving you a workout as well as teaching you form. If you are a beginner on the stability ball, this book will give you some basic exercises you can use at home and at the gym, and for those who already know the moves, it’s a fabulous way to get some serious toning done without ever leaving your living room.
Fat-Burning Kickboxing Workout for Dummies
Workout for Dummies is perfect for us uncoordinated idiots who routinely make fools of ourselves at the gym. Like yoga or Pilates, kick-boxing is a fitness trend that is based on a set of basic moves you need to have down before attempting a serious workout. In your average kick-boxing class, you’ll find that it is a fast-paced workout favored by toned and sweaty men (this can be even more intimidating than your first time at a cardio-dance class). Like most of the videos in the Workout for Dummies series, Fat-Burning Kickboxing offers a great start for beginners and a good refresher course on form for those who’ve tried the sport in the past. Especially helpful is the fifteen-minute tutorial before the actual workout, which despite being for beginners, still kicks some butt.
Tracey Mallett Superbody Boot Camp: Burn It
Boot camp classes typically take place outside on obstacle courses with screaming drill sergeant-style instructors. Needless to say, it is difficult to simulate a boot camp style workout on book and DVD. Instructor Stacey Mallett makes the attempt with short intervals of cardio and strength training drills. There are several intense, muscle-building, fat-burning drills, and after 50 minutes of them, I definitely got a workout. Unfortunately, the fatigue-themed gym clothes were one of the only aspects of the video that said “boot camp” to me. Mallett’s six-pack abs were great inspiration to get moving, but if you want some real drill-sergeant motivation you would be better off watching “Full Metal Jacket.” However, there is a bonus for the techies – – it’s shot in HiDef, which might make it more of an intense fitness experience with a gigantic crystal clear flatscreen.
