The New Rules of Lifting For Life
An All-New Muscle-Building, Fat-Blasting Plan for Men and Women Who Want to AceTheir Midlife Exams
A customizable-and realistic-fitness program specifically created for midlifers who want to lose weight, revitalize energy, and build habits for increased longevity.
Today's exercising adults are caught in a bind: Those who take it seriously and work out aggressively end up with chronic aches and pains in midlife because they don't know how to adjust their programs as they get older. And those who take it easy end up with overfed, underdeveloped bodies that don't respond well when they decide to get serious about exercise.
Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove, fitness experts and authors of The New Rules of Lifting series know all too well that these readers need a program of their own. That's because they are these readers. Schuler started working out in his early teens. After forty years, he realized he couldn't do the programs in his own books without lots of modifications. And Cosgrove, a former European champion in tae kwon do, is a two- time survivor of stage IV cancer who found himself with limited endurance and a body that stubbornly refused to add muscle or shed fat.
So the authors set out to create a new template for exercise, one that delivers serious results but is also flexible enough to accommodate individual limitations. The New Rules of Lifting for Life offers a six-month plan that balances total-body strength, endurance, mobility, balance, coordination, and athleticism. The workouts are challenging and, in conjunction with the suggested diet modifications, will help readers change the way their bodies look, feel, and perform. And not just temporarily- The New Rules of Lifting for Life allows you to enjoy productive and pain-free workouts for many years to come.
Praise for The New Rules of Abs:
“There isn’t a single crunch or sit-up in The New Rules of Lifting for Abs. Instead, Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove base their workout around planks and side planks…This isn’t a revolutionary concept among fitness professionals. But you’d never know it by watching what people in health clubs do.” —Yahoo Sports
“All the crunches in the world won’t give you the six-pack you want. These exercises will.” —Men's Health
“Cosgrove and Schuler’s groundbreaking program is based on the concept that a healthy, sculpted body is the result of your muscles working the way they were intended.” —Women's Health
