In BODY FOR LIFE, bodybuilding magazine publisher and health guru Bill Phillips helps readers to break through the bad mental and physical habits that keep them soft and out of shape. With this guidebook, readers will learn how to eat right, train right, and think right to achieve a better body and healthier life. Though a rigorous fitness program that includes weight training, aerobics, and a strict yet ample diet plan, Phillips promises results in just 12 short weeks. With his extensive experience in weight-training, Phillips is able to credibly recommend unusual training techniques such as including high-intensity sets at the end of each exercise in order to stimulate muscle growth. Similarly, he recommends 20 minutes of aerobic activity with varying intensity, to achieve more caloric loss in less time. Phillips writes in the introduction that he created this system after realizing so many of his devoted fans and readers were--amazingly--actually out of shape. Through BODY FOR LIFE, Phillips motivates readers to create their own success stories and achieve the mental and physical fitness they had previously only read about.
