A Book More Aimed at the Couch Potato

I picked this book because I'm 41 and am a software engineer that used to be in good shape, but not anymore. I was looking for some new routines that could inspire me for the summer months. Most of the stuff out there seems to be aimed at 19-year-olds with 2-3 hours a day to spare for a workout.Anyway, there are some very good sections that deal with metabolic rates, plus some new things I didn't know. Abdo gets vague, too, on the idea of what really is "fitness" and that you can't pigeon hole it as pounds, body fat, etc. The only thing I don't like so far is their approach to supplements. I just don't believe you need them and they go overboard - like taking anti-toxins with every meal, stuff like that.All in all, it is a good book to get some ideas on getting *back* into shape and trying to reshape your life style. And it is one of the less expensive onew out there. There are no photos to show you how to do exercises correctly, just drawn "stick" figures. But if you're like me, that isn't a turn off to the book.
