Book Description
LL didn't always have a diesel body–he chiseled it the old-fashioned way, with hard work and discipline. Here he shares the secrets of his transformation in a uniquely creative, yet no-nonsense regimen–enlivened with humor and sheer force of personality–that will inspire readers to enjoy working out as never before, while building a body they never thought possible. The book offers four levels of fitness, from Bronze to Platinum, including: - a 4-week beginner's program that takes inches off the waist and boosts energy - a 5-week program for intermediates that increases strength while maintaining muscular and cardiovascular endurance - an advanced 9-week program that turns the body into a muscle-building and fat-burning machinge - complete with 6-pack abs and as much energy as LL Cool J - the hardcore 3-week fat-torching program LL used for the "Control Myself" video - a new level in ripped-to-the-bone fitness and sex appeal - a special 4-week "Diamond" program for women seeking to shape up fast for the summer or upcoming event meal plans and recipes that fuel workouts while burning fat with food




 

 

 

Book Description
In his wildly successful 6-Day Body Makeover, Michael Thurmond showed how to drop a dress or pant size by following his proven weight loss program. Now, in 12-DAY BODY SHAPING MIRACLE, he presents his groundbreaking fitness program. First, he shows how to use his trademark "blueprint questionnaire" to determine your body type and pinpoint your problem areas. Then, he explodes the biggest exercise myths today–such as why the "no pain, no gain" approach to exercise does not work–and he provides your very own workout, combining weight training and cardio, customized to your body type and your trouble areas. His "figure fixes" will transform your body quickly and easily, and you will actually see your body respond in a single workout. 12-DAY BODY SHAPING MIRACLE also includes a diet program that will reveal your body-firming curves, and a maintenance program that will keep you looking better than ever, forever!




 

 

Bill Phillips had been publishing bodybuilding magazines and marketing nutritional supplements for years when he had a weird revelation at a trade show: many of the most loyal and enthusiastic readers he had were totally out of shape. From that uncomfortable realization came his popular Physique Transformation Contest (top prize that first year: Phillips's own Lamborghini), now world famous, and this book.

The three-times-a-week weightlifting program in Body for Life is deceptively simple. If you've spent any time in the gym, you've already done all the exercises. But Phillips includes a couple of high-intensity sets at the end of each exercise that should compound the training effect on each muscle group. Same goes for the cardiovascular exercise he recommends: just 20 minutes, three times a week. But those 20 minutes are spent jacking the intensity up and down, accomplishing more in less time.

Phillips arranges all this into a 12-week program, along with nutritional and motivational tips. Be warned that the nutritional advice gets a little spacey. For example, he puts "carbohydrates" and "vegetables" into separate categories, and recommends three daily doses of a nutritional supplement called Myoplex, which his company manufactures. (Fortunately, he gives tips on how to make each dose taste different, such as by adding drops of peppermint extract.) Despite this strangeness, Body for Life still motivates because so many others have achieved astounding results in similar 12-week windows, and the pictures and testimonials are here as evidence. –Lou Schuler
