I like the idea of using your own body weight to get and stay fit. But sometimes you run out of ideas of what to do! This book will absolutely change that by introducing you to a nearly endless range of new exercises, from the simple (knees on floor) to the complex and difficult (grasshopper).
Good pictures throughout make it easy to understand the instructions.
The basic premise of "600 Push Ups - 30 Variations" is that "the push-up is the best, most complete upper body exercise", which explains why it is a core feature of military training. It shows the reader how to maximize upper body strength and endurance using push-ups, some running, and some basic calisthenics -- no need for expensive gym memberships.
The first of three parts contains a brief overview of the utility of push-ups and guidance on how to do them safely. The second is a fully illustrated manual on 30 different kinds of push-ups. He closes with the most important part, which is a series of several multi-week workout programs designed to get the reader into top condition.
Short, readable, fully illustrated, direct, and results-oriented: this book delivers exactly as advertised.
