Men love shortcuts. If there's a way to accomplish a job quicker and more efficiently, they're all for it. That goes for work and working out. Now, new research shows that as little as 15 minutes of resistance training is just as effective in spiking a man's metabolism--his fat-burning furnace--as a workout lasting more than twice as long. All it takes is 15 minutes to achieve lifelong results--and men are more likely to stick to an exercise plan if it's chopped down to those 15 minutes.

The Men's Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts contains fast-paced circuit training and interval workouts that boost calorie burn, build muscle, and fry belly fat in half the time of regular workouts. Readers can choose from at-home, body-weight-only workouts and total-body barbell programs to exercises that target major muscle groups—the chest, arms, legs, and back—and sport-specific workouts. Other highlights include:

  • A special section of 15-minute core workouts to build a rock-hard six-pack
  • An eating plan with delicious meals that take 15 minutes or less to prepare
  • Workouts for the office or when you're traveling and can't make it to the gym
  • Hundreds of tips from America's best trainers, nutritionists, and exercise scientists

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely phantastic! 26. März 2013
Von Ugur
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a fitness enthusiast who is always looking for new methods for training. This book is a perfect colletion of many many useful exercises, many of them with just your body weight. I also bought "The Men's Health Big Book of Exercises" some time ago but couldn't do much with it. This book here is so practical for me because I don't have to create my own sets of exercises. It has sets of 5-6 exercises that can be accomplished withn 15 minutes.

Absolutely phantastic! :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book, clear instructions 30. August 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
For anyone who already has The Big Books Of Excercizes ( ) then this book is a waste of money. The texts are in some places simply 1:1 copies. The pictures show the same excercize (with different models) and the order and grouping of the excercizes are slightly different.

If you need to loose weight, and you already have the other book then simply by not buying it will make you 1kg lighter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 78 short workouts 27. Oktober 2011
Von Peter Tsang - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The basic idea of this book is to work the body in about 15 minutes.

Here's how you do it. You focus on a few key exercises and move quickly from one exercise to another, with mininal rest time between exercises. Then, you repeat the exercises in a circuit, again with minimal rest.

These workouts work on increasing strength, by building muscle and strong bones, thus burning more fat. These workouts emphasize getting a lean strong body, rather than bodybuilding, and is, therefore, not a general bodybuilding book.

In the number and variety of workouts, this book is excellent. It contains 78 workouts, all 15-minutes long. Some workouts are bodyweight or require dumbbells. Others use a pull-up bar, a barbell, a kettlebell, a medicine ball, a stability (Swiss or large) ball, an exercise band (tubing), a foam roller, a jump rope, a BOSU, a bench, a cable machine, a step, and so on.

Instruction and exercises for each of the workouts vary, but in general, one may do a circuit of 3 to 7 relatively intense exercises, with little or no rest between each exercise. Then, rest for 60 between each circuit. Finally, repeat 2 more circuits.

All exercise photos are large and in color, clearly showing their positions, with descriptions.

I did workout #3 (bodyweight) and I was breathing heavily during the exercise and I did a modified version of workout #7 (dumbell blast 2) and it was intense and made me sweat. I loved the concept of 15 minute workouts and I liked this book.


If you liked this book, try the women's version of this 15-minutes book. This shows more bodyweight and dumbbell workouts.

If you want just bodyweight exercises, (with no equipment), get this book, "You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises" by Mark Lauren and Joshua Clark. This is excellent in the range of exercises which, again, do not require equipment.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Short, intense workouts are definitely the way to go 20. März 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I totally agree with the philosophy of this book and have found short, intense workouts to be MUCH more effective in building muscle and burning fat than long, drawn-out gym sessions. (The saved time is quite a plus too.)

This book gives some great circuit routines that will get your heart pumping and your muscles working. There are gym-free total body workouts, which also are great cardio; dumbbell workouts for your upper and lower body; barbell workouts meant to build maximum muscle mass; ab workouts; cardio routines; and more.

I've already tried several of the workout and was surprised at how challenging they were! This book doesn't disappoint!

P.S. I also highly recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Build Healthy Muscle Series) because it straightened out a bunch of confusions I had about how to build muscle, lose fat, and be healthy. I was making quite a few mistakes and didn't even know it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome fat burning excercises... sparing you some free time!! 21. Dezember 2011
Von Vaiarii - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As a young father, my Wife and I do not have much spare time anymore to exercise nor do outdoor trips (hiking, mountain biking,etc.).
We felt very sad about that.
This book of optimized exercises helped us being motivated again by gaining results as impressive as if we were training 3 times longer !!
But don't imagine these are miracle recipes... the basis is that you don't lose time resting between the workouts, so the 15mn are very, I mean very efficient...
Results do come fast and after 2 weeks (training 1 day out of 2, as suggested in the book), I am already feeling my abs recovering their former strentgh, more durably than before. Needless to talk about the thighs and arms and shoulders...
The workouts in this book won't help you build "big" muscles, but they will help you gain EFFICIENT muscles, EFICIENT strength, and endurance.
You just have to complete your weekly workout by one "HIIT" (High Intensity Interval Training), ideally outdoor (in my case: skysurfing/paddling : ) ) and you're done.
And the main benefit is that you have... more spare time to rest between the daily workouts and after each day's workout !
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for awesome (and motivating because of the variety!!) workouts, especially if they don't want to spend hours excercises because of her/his busy lifestyle !

4.0 von 5 Sternen The concept is what's most important here... 4. Januar 2012
Von Kailua Dude - Veröffentlicht auf
Not to go all Zen on everyone, but the concept of this book and its companion book for women is what's most important here. It's well laid out in chapter 1 "The Genius of the 15 Minute Workout". Simply put, shorter (but very high intensity) workouts are optimal in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. Hands down. This book gives you tons of workouts that fit that bill. If you buy in to the concept (as I do), this book is for you. If you prefer to spend your time on the elliptical, then, well, you should still buy this book and change your approach to training :).

4.0 von 5 Sternen good book to get some ideas for days you can't make the gym 9. März 2012
Von tom sawyer - Veröffentlicht auf
you'll want to read this book more than once. there is a lot of material being covered. it breaks down eating, body parts for working out, whole body workouts and some sport specific. the book is an easy read. between work, school, sports and pool, I don't always have time for the gym. I had already ready about interval training but I was looking for something to either supplement my routines, have an alternate workout or just get something meaningful in days I don't have the time.

I would have preferred more detail on the exercises that identified how this is good for what sport or more information on the muscle group. the book is lacking on that front. is it going to be used and referenced for years to come? absolutely. I've bought a few copies for friends I know travel or don't always have time it was that good. there is also a female version of this. I'd like to review it before really recommending it but from what I've seen of it so far it should save some people
I know 5 hours at the gym/day
