Drawing on the foundation of "Men's Health" magazine, this superb guide explains everything that inexperienced or lapsed exercisers need to know to tailor a fitness program to their individual goals and abilities. The ability to personalise a workout plan, allows readers to achieve quicker results and spend less time with ice packs and sore muscles. Unlike other books that lump beginning exercisers into one group, this program differentiates among beginners, such as: high-schoolers with newfound interest in lifting; 30-year-olds who want to get back the bodies they had when they played college sports; and 50-year-olds who work out only for the first few weeks after New Year's resolutions every January. Michael Mejia, contributing editor to "Men's Health" magazine thoroughly explains the fundamentals of fitness, including strength training, cardiovascular activity, and nutrition. He provides self-assessment tests to help safeguard against injuries by identifying muscular imbalances, decreased flexibility, or other weaknesses-and then shows how to correct these problems.
