A customizable fitness program created for middle aged adults 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 can end up with chronic aches and injuries because they don't know how to adjust their programs as they get older. And those who take it easy may end up with overfed, underdeveloped, injury-prone bodies. 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 just like these readers. So they set out to create a new template for exercise, one that delivers real results but is flexible enough to accommodate individual limitations. "The New Rules of Lifting for Life" offers a six-month plan that integrates 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-- "T""he New Rules of Lifting for Life" will allow 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 "
