As for this book, it most definitely requires more detailed explanations and more actual exercises to do - It is lacking in this regard. Novices will be left with little clue on where to start or how to progress.

The basic messages are very simple: The book provides simple, easily achievable exercise routines, supported by persuasive arguments that encourage the reader to get active, and all achievable in a very time-efficient way. As Michael Mosley states at the end of the book, "We were born to move. Some of us more reluctantly than others.
So let's find ways to do it more. Jan 12, Liz rated it really liked it. Studies show that HIT in which you do a few minutes of high intensity exercise 3 times a week is as or more effective than many hours spent going more slowly.
What we have known as fat burning really isn't. This is fascinating and highly appealing. He explains exactly how to do the HIT exercise. It can be done on any exercise machine that can quickly provide resistance or you can run, walk up flights of stairs, swim etc. Anything in which you can give your maximum effort for around 30 seconds at a time.
There are also some exercises for strength training which can be done at home. These are not detailed muscle group descriptions because that is not what this book is about. There are hundreds of those books on the market if you need one. This is about getting super fit in only a few minutes 3 times a week. What should have been a clean and easy exercise program to accompany the FastDiet book e.
It's not set up for either those starting out or for those wi More reviews and no fluff on the blog http: It's not set up for either those starting out or for those with a more advanced exercise regimen.
As well, a lot of the exercises need gym equipment and aren't really suitable or even comfortable for those overweight such as running or jumping jacks, both of which could really be damaging to knees, etc. The book chapters are broken down as follows: Truth about exercise, What is fast exercise? Out of or so pages, about 20 actually show you the exercises. Most if not all you've seen before: Although the exercises are described with very simple illustrations, the author doesn't give you ways in which the exercises could be done incorrectly, assuming everyone does it correctly.
There is a LOT of text here and a lot to comb through once you've read it and just want to get back to the exercises. There is a lot that could have been done to make this much more friendly. The author's tone is great, knowledgeable yet encouraging, but I have to admit I was also put off quite a bit about everything being about him.
I don't want to know about exercise that worked for him - I want to know about exercise that works the general population - I somehow doubt he is a near obese premenopausal 47 year old woman, for example. But I don't see a lot about male-female differences either. So while I don't find this to be a bad book, I think a lot could of been done to make this easier to use, follow, and even be motivated. But I want more show, not tell, or I end up sitting on my butt reading instead of exercising.

The Fast Exercise book - Fast Exercise
I know. Medics keep telling us about exercise. They know exercise is essential for good health, but much of what it involves puts them off, especially the time factor. It only takes a few minutes a day and can be done almost wherever you happen to be: Basically, it involves doing extremely short, intense bursts of whatever exercise you choose to do three or four minutes, say interspersed with short, more relaxed periods of the activity.
He tried it out—eating normally five days a week and reducing his intake of calories on two.
He not only lost weight, but found that the level of glucose in his blood returned to normal. Diet and exercise He then became curious about the relationship between exercise and health. Diet and exercise, are, as he says, complementary to each other. Scientists in Britain, Scandinavia and the US had found that short bursts of high intensive exercise were as effective as long sessions in a gym. He went for it and found thatamongst the improvements to his health were increased endurance, reduced body fat and better insulin sensitivity.
So he carried on. He was motivated by his dislike of exercise. His co-author Peta Bee, on the other hand, loved exercise. She was a long distance runner and had once run for Wales. In his pre-race training sessions he would run flat out for about a minute, covering quarter of a mile.
Then he would jog for two to three minutes and follow that up with another sprint. He would repeat this cycle ten times before ending his training session for the day. Little was known about HIT when Bannister ran his three-minute mile.
The Fast Exercise book
Today, HIT is important for all athletes whether they compete in long distance or shorter events. It allows them to run, swim and cycle faster for longer. But athletes are exceptional people. What can it do for lesser mortals? This book targetspeople who are unfit, overweight, or have had a history of heart disease, stroke or diabetes. HIT, say the authors, will get you aerobically fitter,boost your insulin sensitivity, build muscle tone and let you lose some fat faster than standard exercise.
Sitting for long hours, they say, is positively dangerous. Comfortingly, they urge us to walk as the easiest way to becoming more active although it isn't a great calorie burner. I have been fast walking for the last three weeks and I do feel fitter.
I reckon the time taken to put one foot in front of the other as a second and have been doing eight bursts of two minutes each of fast walking, sometimes more, counting each step. This means getting out of the house preferably before 8am and the start up of the serious Cairo traffic.
Jul 05, David Graham rated it it was amazing. I found this book to be extremely useful primarily due to its accessibility and simplicity. I know that some exercise enthusiasts and experts have said that it is not the definitive word on HIT High Intensity Training but, with respect, I think they are missing the point.
This is not a book for elite athletes just as well for me!
One I found this book to be extremely useful primarily due to its accessibility and simplicity. One of the strengths of the book, for me, was in the way it presented the research behind the case for HIT. It cites just the right amount of studies i.
The findings were also presented in a very easy-to-understand terms. Another area where the book does well is in designing simple-to-understand and simple to follow programs. I've read many fitness and health books with otherwise compelling messages which fell down when it came to translating the principles into practicality. Quite separate from HIT and the simple resistance programs, the advice about trying to mitigate the dangers of our sedentary lifestyle resonated powerfully.
The research regarding the difference simply going for a stroll or getting out of your chair occasionally during the day will make to your overall health was an eye-opener.
