Outlines a program of slow-movement exercise that safely increases strength and burns fat in only half an hour per week, providing step-by-step instructions designed to work out the entire body, improve cardiovascular health, and enhance spinal support.
Personal trainer Fred Hahn and Drs. Mary and Michael Eades (metabolic specialists and authors of the popular PROTEIN POWER series) have created a unique workout program that combines slow-cadence weight training with high-protein/low-carbohydrate eating. The authors present compelling evidence that this regimen burns fat, revs up metabolism, strengthens bones, and induces overall cardiovascular fitness without the side effects (aches, pains) of traditional exercise programs. The weight training consists of several slow-motion moves done either with machines and weights at a gym or using household objects and body weight if done at home. Clearly instructed and illustrated, the moves are easy to learn. The workout is difficult but extremely effective, necessitating only 20-30 minutes, once a week. The high-protein eating plan is generous and focuses on what can be eaten rather than on restricting calories. Disciplined readers will have no trouble following the guidelines, and may find that the "slow-burn" method brings them closer to their fitness goals than aerobics, low-calorie diets, and other mainstream approaches.
