Amazon.de

Kurt Brungardt was at the front end of the abdominal obsession. His Abs of Steel video was a bestseller, and the original Complete Book of Abs, published in 1993, was considered the bible of midsection exercises for trainers and fitness enthusiasts. The obsession has only grown since then, manifested by dubious infomercial products, a burgeoning fitness-magazine industry promising readers great abs with almost no investment of time and effort, and (perhaps because of the shortcomings of the first two phenomena) a boom in the demand for legitimate nutritionists and personal trainers. Even Brungardt himself came out with a 1998 book, 3-Minute Abs, to take advantage of the craze.

With all that going on, it seems hard to believe that there's anything new to say about abdominal exercise. Indeed, this revised version of The Complete Book of Abs doesn't really try. There is a new prebeginner midsection routine, which leads into the more advanced exercise regimens described in the original book, and a handful of new exercises. But other than that, the expanded sections are in nutrition (several new pages of recipes) and total-body fitness (new photos demonstrating exercises for body parts other than abs).

Still, the original package is a terrific deal: more than 100 exercises, numerous training routines, and lots of basic information about exercise and diet. Each abdominal exercise is rated for difficulty on a scale of 1 to 3 and how risky it is to the lower back. The routines are complete and thoughtfully compiled, and there's not a bit of advice in the entire book that isn't scientifically legitimate. That's why this book--in either edition--remains indispensable for those serious enough about fitness to need information that goes beyond the basics. --Lou Schuler END

Hey, I'm no spring chicken in terms of real fitness, no bodybuilder or top-athlete either. And my body is my temple, a good one. Provided you know how to excercise and eat right, this book will take you step by step to ab stardom. It is a thoroughly rehearsed guide, someone tried it all before instead of concocting a recipe with its bum on a chair. It works. Slowly and methodically. It senses your moods, giving you phrases of encouragement at the right time. There are also lots of additional chapters that will be quite enlightening for the enthusiast or novice. My advise is buy it. It is a great reference book. Follow the plan for at least 4 months - provided you are not obese - and you will have a six-pack that won't go away even if you stop excercising. Okay okay, all this does not come free: First, you will have to work bloody hard, but since the program is very well structured you will not really notice the load increase. However, the 15' a day claim is a joke. You will clock up 20' at start-up and about 45' mid-progam, if you do the excercises right instead of bouncing up and down. The book is also tainted by some stupid typos midway through the program (level 3 I guess), which require patience to sort out. Have a pen handy. To finalise, the 'ultimate abs' level is bloody dangerous. I went twice up there and screwed my neck so badly that still hurts. I accept some blame for doing these at home with makeshift stuff. Overall, as said, top book. Once you try this you will realise that you possibly never did any decent ab work in your entire life, no matter if you are an amateur or a fitness pro. I have surprised many well seasoned coaches and personal trainers with the routines I learned in this book. hAB fun! -Adrian PS Kurt, send me your other books so I try them too!

I used to be a 375 pound sloth. You know the type. Unemployed, still waiting for that potato chip delivery job to open back up, but not quite getting the hint from the Pringles guys that your presence isn't appreciated at the distribution center. Staying up late at night, promising yourself that tomorrow you'll call that technical school you've heard such great things about on the advertisements between old episodes of COPS and reruns of Judge Judy. Always wondering "Will I ever see my feet again?". Waiting for the big day when Skynyrd gets back together, but then suddenly remembering half the band was killed in a plane crash twenty years ago.Pondering the value of your 25 year old unopened cans of Franco Harris Commemmorative Schlitz, knowing for a fact that someone out there is just as sentimental as you are for the Iron City, and I revel in my thoughts of raking in the dough when I sell them to some guy just as old school as me, and making a hefty profit in the process.Well, those days ended just 6 short weeks ago my friend. After purchasing this book, my stomach flattened out faster than Colista Flockhart purges her 1 meal every day. My ambition and drive have come back to me, and I've actually bothered to talk to a manager at the delivery center, where he said he's in the process of getting me a job. And boy was I shocked to see that after all these years, I still had 10 toes (however, the 6 inch toenails that accompanied them is a different story all together). I no longer watch COPS or Judge Judy late at night, but rather in the afternoon, sometimes during my workout. I did do one thing I never thought I would do, though. I drank those cans of Schlitz's as a reward to myself for 'feeling the burn' one fine day.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Don't buy this book if you are an intermediate to advanced fitness enthusiast. I just made the mistake. The first half of the book deals with wellness, like what you should eat, the importance of cardio. The second half shows a bunch of ab exercises but fails to tell you which is most effective. I was hoping to be told. "This particular situp is the best one for suchnsuch..."Instead they were all lumped together, none standing out above the rest. It was like the author had a competition to see how many different movements he could come up with. While I may not be elequent in writing this, since Im so steamed at wasting money on such a terrible book, believe me when I say this is a waste of money:) Instead I would recommend Arnold's Encyclopedia or I think there was also a good one by Joe Weider-both of which say...there are a lot of dumb situp movements that do nothing...but these will give you the best results....thats what I was looking for...

All in all, this was a pretty good book. It included nutrition and general fitness as well as many, many exercises for each section of the abs. The section on the anatomy of the stomach was rather lacking, but that can easily be remidied with a quick look in an anatomy book. Also, there was not too much detail in the routines about such things as how long to hold the contraction, isometrics, pulses, etc. Such information was briefly mentioned, but I felt there should have been a whole section devoted to this in detail. Despite these two minor problems, I felt this was an excellent source to develop a top notch ab routine. I would definitely buy it again, and I will probably buy the other two books that Kurt has written on the lower and upper body.
