It's been busy lately and I've slowed down on the books I occasionally review but some books you can't say no to. Besides with a love of books and a passion for writing, I'm spending too much time in a chair. Not only that but I discovered that the treadmill desk might not be for me - seems I get motion sick!
Jim Atkinson is a bodybuilder and fitness trainer who has written more than his share of workout and "get fit" books and each one that I've read has been fantastic and motivational. Don't let the bodybuilding put you off - Jim's latest book will get you off the couch and keep you there.
Here's my review of his latest:
"If this book doesn't motivate and keep you on track to get in shape, bodybuilder or not, nothing will! Written by a qualified fitness instructor and personal trainer, it is written in an upbeat, logical, and easy to read manner and gets right to the heart of bodybuilding addressing all aspects including health and nutrition. The bodybuilding regime is explained and laid out with a full year's training plan, great reference guides for the various movements and an accountability chart to keep you on track. I've read other great fitness books from this author and again I was not disappointed by either the easy to follow instructions, well-written prose or his knowledge on the topic of fitness. While this book addresses bodybuilding and a more intense regime than some of his other books that I've read, it's every bit as motivational no matter what level you're at. If you're looking for motivation combined with common sense advise on how to body build this book is for you. If you're looking for motivation to get fit, this books for you too. A great reference!
