Too much boasting.... Oct 15, 2007
Jim Forystek is breaking some fundamental principles of fitness in this book. I was very disappointed after I read it... The boys in the pics have (over)developed pecs, the rest of the arms and body are very underdeveloped. Yes the boys are lean, but that is pretty much it..That is the result that powerflex delivers? If you want a good book about bodyweighttraining, get John Peterson's books. They are LIGHTYEARS ahead of this sorry excuse of a fitness book..
no gym required Sep 6, 2007
Powerflex is a very easy book to read. The explanations of each excercise are written so that everyone can understand them. The pictures are great illustrations of each excercise. The reader will know exactly how to perform each movement. The eight week program is great and you will see results fairly quick. One of the best parts is you don't need a gym or expensive equipment and you can do them wherever you are. The price is right too. I highly recommend this book.
Fastest Way to a Great Man Body... Jan 5, 2007
Excellent, excellent book. The exercises are easy, fast, and they work like a charm. I've asked tons of people about chest development and never stuck to doing flys, flys, inverted, upside right, whatever... this is way easier and much more effective.
What I really dig is the spine and neck workouts. Never saw that addressed before, and what a difference in how I feel everyday!! Thanks!!

Powerflex is an execellent book on Bodyweight exercises. His writer Jim Forystek was a follower of Charles Atlas and has stay faithful to the perfection of building muscles in the absence of the use of weights. I love the way the book exercise routines are structured. For each exercise the book has 3 levels of repetitions, making it easy to follow the routine. I've been using it for over 8 months and feel my body has improved a great deal. Some parts I believe Powerflex could have improved is in providing pictures for the Speed and Endurance exercises, providing exercises for the calves and forearms and in providing nutritional information. Otherwise, Powerflex is an excellent addition to any bodyweight exercise library.
It's worth it. Feb 15, 2006
I found the book well structured. The exercises easy to understand. The book is worth the buy. Think about how much money people spend on gym fees and buying bulky equipment. If your just starting out and want a easy method that can be done any where, Powerflex is a great place to start.
