The First 20 Minutes: Surprising Science Reveals How We Can: Exercise Better, Train Smarter, Live Longer by Gretchen Reynolds

The First 20 Minutes by Gretchen Reynolds
Exercising has been a very hot topic for many people as of late; more and more fitness experts and gurus are putting for their own systems and workout methods, making it somewhat difficult to know which way of exercising is right for your goals.

In other words, people are often asking themselves if they are properly working out, if they are going hard enough and if they are dedicated enough of their time to it.

With these questions in mind, a "Phys Ed" columnist from the New York Times by the name of Gretchen Reynolds wrote a book titled The First 20 Minutes in order to help home exercisers determine the kind of workout they need to adhere to in order to become and remain healthy.

While at first the book may seem like an over-complicated basic exercising guide, there is much more than that to it. Apart from teaching you how to go about the exercises, you are also given advice as to how you should proceed about adjusting the frequency and intensity of your workouts, all based on the latest scientific findings in regards to exercising.

Having such information at your disposal is critical to leading a healthy lifestyle; not knowing how to properly do the exercises, how often you should do them and how intensely you have to perform them can in some cases lead to ineffective results, while in other cases it may cause even cause injuries.

Naturally, the science in the book is not presented through quotes from clinical studies and researches, but it is rather simplified and brought down to a level which practically anyone can understand, from teenagers to full-fledged adults. There isn’t much fluff, if any at all, with most of the book being concentrated on concisely giving you practical advice and demonstrations.

All in all, it is the perfect thing for those who are having trouble with the basics of working out and exercising.If you are interested in learning all you need to about casual exercising, simply check out where it is being sold at a 43% discount for only $15.68.
