Great Book!

I've looked at a few workout books that are more for women and ended up buying this one and Joni Hyde's other book "Workouts for Women - Weight Training" because they have clear pictures and simple instructions. The information is laid out in such a say that you can immediately put it into practice - instead of wading through words, words, words.

tougher than it looks

Each of the circuits are pictured in condensed form on one page, then in detailed form on following pages for easy access. I ran copies of the condensed forms and made notes on the back of each for gym use, and I use the book at home. The fast pace will have you breathing, especially if you have been "relaxed" at exercise for a while, as I have. The variation will help avoid boredom. Sometimes I do just one circuit, then follow with "The 5 Tibetans"; sometimes 2 or more circuits. It allows for flexibility with workouts.

Terrific home workout book

This is one of the best home workout books. Equipment needed is 1) low-weight dumbbells, 2) ankle weights, and 3) step or weight bench (but I use one of those large exercise balls as my bench, with shoulders on the ball and core muscles used to keep trunk of body in straight, bench-like position). This may seem like a lot to get started, but an efficient, effective program can be built from this foundation. The exercises work every muscle group, the instructions are very easy to follow, and the suggested form protects the back (with many exercise programs, the muscles get nice and strong, but the back gets injured).

Over 90 different exercises

Certified Personal Trainer Joni Hyde presents Workouts for Women: The 12-Minute Total Body Sculpting Workout, a straightforward introduction to circuit training, offering a program designed by a woman for women. Focusing on a total body exercise session that builds feminine lean muscle tone, increases strength, and cultivates aerobic endurance in a time-efficient workout that can be condensed into as little as 12 minutes a day, Workouts for Women also offers tips for fitting exercise into one's schedule and eating right for optimum health. Over 90 different exercises, illustrated with black-and-white photographs as well as meticulous instructions, make Workouts for Women an easy-to-use resource to tailor a fitness regimen right for the individual.
