On March 17, 2014, Manalapan Health Examiner Stacey Chillemi reviewed the book "Paleo Workouts for DUMMIES" by Patrick Flynn, fitness expert and Dr. Kellyann Petrucci and here's what she had to say:
I found this exercise book to be very informative jam-packed with unique tips, techniques and strategies to help you lose weight maintain optimum health and obtain the body you always dreamed of achieving for yourself. One thing I read in the beginning of the book that stuck with me is that you don’t need a bunch of expensive equipment or exercise tapes to lose-weight and shape up. The exercises in this book are easy and the book is inexpensive. All you need is this book, some weights and a comfortable spot in your home where you can focus. Paleo Workouts for DUMMIES contains tons of effective exercises, which not only are easy to learn, but effective too.
Chapter 1 begins by teaching you how to get started. It teaches you how to change your mindset then gives you a clear explanation, why his exercises are more effective than traditional exercise programs.
The beginning of the book provides you with helpful tips and advice on how to get started to creating the perfect program customized for your own needs. He explains that it is not necessary to spend hours in a gym three or four times a week to reach your fitness goals. You can modify exercises and exercise for a limited amount of time and still attain strength, muscle mass and weight loss. The book goes on to provide you with helpful tips, tools, techniques, strategies and step-by-step exercises to help you on your journey to visually attaining the body you dreamed of achieving or for the person who just wants to stay healthy and maintain optimum health.
As you continue reading, he taps on some interesting subject matters for instance, “Breathing the way you were meant to breathe.” Breathing plays an important part of health and even controls our stress levels too. Paleo Workouts for DUMMIES gives you step-by-step advice on how to change your life with just a few simple changes on how we care for our bodies.
As you continue reading, you will find tons of exercises and advice on how to improve your health, strength and body. The book even discusses supplements for men and women that can help you improve the way you look and feel. I thought chapter 17 was great. It discussed 10 important super foods to help you perform your exercises ten times better.
To see how well his advice really were I put it to the challenge by following his advice on what vitamins and supplements to take, eating the suggested super foods and performing many of the exercises in the book.
The workouts were effective. I could feel my muscles being put to test for sure, but afterwards I felt great and I can see some muscle definition occurring too. My strength has increased and I don’t have to run the gym to get this great workout. I can do it in my sitting room!
I enjoyed how the book provides you with the stepping-stones and techniques to improve your health and body the natural way. No diet pills, expensive, unnecessary equipment that costs a fortune, all you need is the book, a few weights and a little time out of your day, a couple times a week and you’ll see the results. I am beginning to see the results right now.
The book captured my interest and it has motivated me to take a little extra time to exercise each day. I realize, through reading this book that no matter what age you are it is never too late to change your lifestyle and exercise habits so you can live a happy, healthy and productive life. Everyone should take the time to love and care for his or her body. If you have time to watch TV, go to the movies or shopping at the mall then you, have the time to put aside to care for your body the way you should.
Paleo Workouts for DUMMIES is an excellent exercise/health book packed with phenomenal advice and easy step-by-step exercises. I found this book to be motivating and the exercises are easy to follow. This book may be just what the doctor ordered for anyone who has a quest to lose weight, define his or her body, learn how to eat right and maintain optimum health. I recommend this book to others. Definite FIVE stars.
