Great reference for mixing up your workout exercises 23. April 2014
Von Andrea Polk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I workout 3-4 times a week; cardio and weight training. I've done this for the past 4 years despite having fibromyalgia. I enjoy how these workouts make me feel mentally, but physically it can be tough. I am stronger and leaner because of strength training, which is why this book caught my eye.

Where this book shines for me is in the over 150 exercises it illustrates for the reader. It offered some new-to-me training exercises which I can incorporate into my routine, which was great! Those exercises will help fight off boredom in the gym and combined with HIT training, should help with a metabolism kick start. Both good things!

The title made me think there would be a bit more on nutrition in the book, but the basic ideas of lean protein and healthy carbs are there. The majority of the book is about explaining the exercises - some that are common and some that are not - with text and sequential photos. The photos are in black and white, but very helpful in illustrating proper form.

This book isn't really a beginner's 'how-to' as much as it is an intermediate to advanced gym rat's tool. There is a section or two for beginners, but I think this book would be a bit intimidating for those looking for fat loss and not already aware that that may mean weight gain in the form of muscle. It's not a diet book or a weight loss book. It's about building muscle to boost your metabolism to burn more fat.

Chapter 9: Fat Loss Workouts, comes at the end of the book, and workout programs are in table formats. Since the title is 'Strength Training for Fat Loss' I wish I'd seen these programs at the start of the book with photos instead of at the back. I recognize that the exercises in the tables are explained before these programs, but if not aware of what an exercise was, you might struggle to know without a photo or page reference for it listed in the workout routine.

The best part of this book - where I found the most value - was in the exercises; how they were explained and the included photos. The rest of it is a bit tough to read and left me feeling like the content didn't completely match up with the title.

Maybe my expectations were too high? Maybe it's because it's lacking more of a discussion of nutrition and supplements? Maybe more than 150 exercises are a great book, but with a different title? I give this book 4 out of 5 stars ("I like it"), but I would give it 3.5 ("I like it for some things, but not for others...") if I could. It's not bad, just not what I expected.

Excellent guide focused on metabolic strength training for the purpose of losing fat 22. Mai 2014
Von Alain B. Burrese - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
“Strength Training For Fat Loss” by Nick Tumminello is a well written and designed book that focuses on metabolic strength training for the purpose of losing fat. It is important to recognize that. This book focuses on exercises and routines when fat loss is your primary training goal. If you have different training goals, such as strength training, bodybuilding, or power lifting, you would train differently. However, during your cycled training throughout a year, you might incorporate two months of this metabolic strength training to cut some fat.

After the introduction, chapter one shares some benefits of fat loss. Trust me, if you are carrying extra fat on your body, you will benefit from losing it. Tumminello just touches the surface on some of the major benefits from losing excess fat.

Chapter 2 describes metabolic strength training and how it works to improve your physical appearance and functional ability. Tumminello introduces the three metabolic strength training concepts that form the basis of the routines in this book. These are strength training circuits, strength training complexes, and strength training combinations. This introduction to the concepts shares why they are effective.

Chapter 3, Nutrition for Fat Loss, provides some basic and sound nutritional guidelines. Nothing fancy or complicated, just solid advice on how to eat more healthy.

Chapters 4, 5, and 6 focus on the three big concepts: Circuits, Combinations, and Complexes. This portion of the book is like many exercise books in that Tumminello describes many exercises and exercise sequences with descriptions and photographs. I found both clear and easy to understand. Both male and female models are used in the photographs, and a variety of equipment was illustrated, including dumbbells and kettlebells for some exercises.

Chapter 7 shares how you can use body-weight training on days you can't get to the weights. Body weight and exercise band exercises are illustrated.

Chapter 8 contains information on proper warm-ups and cool-downs. The author says these have been selected to help your body lose fat and maintain muscle when used with the metabolic training concepts in this book.

Chapter 9, Fat-Loss Workouts, puts everything together. In this chapter, you learn how to take the exercises taught and outlined previously and put them into workout to achieve your fat loss goals. There are break-in workouts for beginners and then progressively more advanced workouts.

And finally, in chapter 10, Fat-Loss Training For Life, Tumminello shares some simple and practical lifestyle strategies to keep you healthy for life. The chapter is only a few pages, but it contains some excellent advice on living and staying fit and healthy.

There are countless books on diet and exercise, and each has its own unique focus. If your focus is losing fat, “Strength Training For Fat Loss” provides an excellent guide to do just that. If you follow the eating and exercise guidelines outlined and taught in this book, you will surely see results. You'll gain strength and lose fat, along with all the other benefits healthy eating and exercise provide. From beginner to expert, these programs will produce results.

FINALLY a book that simplifies training techniques!! 4. April 2014
Von Stephanie Castano - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a certified personal trainer with a variety of different credentials in crossfit, and group fitness, I am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge in the way I program workouts for my clients to keep it fun and effective for them. This book is the honestly the first book that truly simplifies training and gives you excellent information.

If you are a personal trainer or simply a person who wants to learn more about how to effectively workout at the gym then YOU MUST INVEST IN THIS BOOK!!! No other book out there will give you full workout programs (at home and in the gym), give you simple nutrition advice, and actually teaches you WHY you are doing what you are doing so you can become more knowledgeable!!

Anyone wanting to lose fat while building strength should buy this book!!!! 7. April 2014

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been following Nick Tumminello on Facebook for a couple of years now and even had the privilege of hearing him speak at a recent fitness conference. He is one of the most well-respected and innovative coaches in the fitness industry. I have learned so much from him during this time and was extremely excited when I found out his book Strength Training for Fat Loss was coming out. This book is phenomenal!!! He takes scientific-based programming and translates it into straightforward advice and practical exercise programs designed for people at all levels of fitness from beginner to advanced. The exercises are explained in EXCELLENT detail along with pictures so that anyone who is unfamiliar with any of the exercises can learn to perform them quickly and easily. The circuits, complexes, and combinations he puts together in this book will help anyone who wants to lose fat, build muscle, improve strength, and feel awesome. I am looking forward to utilizing these workouts in a lot of my own training, as well in the programming for my clients that I train at my gym. Finally, Nick does an excellent job of providing simple and straightforward nutrition advice and strategies important in any fat loss program. No gimmicks, no silly miracle hypes, no detoxes or cleanses... just proven scienced-based nutritional information. Thanks Nick for putting out a QUALITY fitness book that is sure to help so many people reach their health and fitness goals. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!!!!

Metabolism vs Body Building, but Needs Index or Detailed Contents to Utilize 17. Mai 2014
Von Gadget Fan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
PROS- explains how to train to boost metabolism, lots of expertise and exercises to select, *****
CONS- inflexible; poor book production: hard to navigate because no detailed contents or index, photos are B&W, **

At the beginning, this book explains "metabolic strength training" to make muscles burn more fat, which is accomplished by anerobic exertion rather than aerobic activity (cardio). Compared to traditional strength training, this approach builds power endurance, rather than peak strength and power. While this chapter is brief, in a way it is the most important, because it is the explanation for how all the exercises are done in terms of reps, duration, etc. that form the bulk of the book.

The numerous exercises are grouped into three kinds: circuits (focus on single area), combinations (total-body exercises), complexes (various body exercises which stay with a single piece of gym equipment), all of which require various equipment including hand weights, barbells, kettlebells, and various gym apparatus. Fortunately, for use at home or during travel, he also has a chapter on body-weight exercises, that mostly exercise against the weight of the body (but do use some anchored elastic bands). Each exercise is illustrated with one or more B&W photos and an explanatory paragraph.At the very end are tables and charts of sample workouts, including beginner "break-ins" and some body-weight only exercises. However, there is little flexibility in these routines, it would be nice if there was a big more variety and exercise options, information about when and how to adjust loads, etc.

The biggest problem I see with this book is that it can be hard to actually do a suggested workout, because the workout charts at the back don't give page numbers of the specific exercises, so you have to page around and around to find the details (and there is no index or detailed table of contents or chart of exercises). If you are expert enough to know what activities the exercise names refer to, you don't need this book, but if you are still learning, this book is almost impossible to utilize. There is a a tremendous amount of training expertise in this book, but it can be hard to access the specifics. This book really needs a detailed table of all the exercises and which parts of the body are addressed and special equipment required, along with page numbers! Even if you are composing your own workouts, you still need some way to see a list of possible exercises. Other training books may be more informative and easier to actually utilize, such as Fitness Weight Training-3rd Edition.

Also, some people may be bothered by the black & white photos, which are not as crisp as they could be, and also sometimes diagrams or annotations would help to highlight important aspects of positioning or movement. In this way, the book is looks old-fashioned compared to other training books out there.

Finally, his dietary advice is also rather old-school. He says to eat meals composed of a) protein, b) fibrous carbs, c) starchy carbs, and d) fats. He claims all those carbs are needed to fuel the body, ignoring the alternative forms of energy the body uses when eating lower carb. However, unlike trim body-builders, people who are interested in losing weight often have carb and blood sugar issues, which are improved by a lower carb approach. Also, the web is full of accounts of athletes improving with a low-carb approach (for just one instance, see the exercise archives at dietdoctor; others are easy to find). So I think he needs to show some nutrition flexibility in this respect, rather than prescribing one-diet-fits-all.
