Really interesting book. Read to see how it can change me and hearing the stories of how it changed many others in a physically and mentally way. It teaches you at the end of the book how to start the alpha plan while the beginning teaches you about the facts which was really neat! I will try the plan in the summer when I am not in school. But I will add some of the ways to my everyday life.
Awesome and Meh at the Same Time
This book is great for anyone wanting to burn fat and build muscle.
Love the science behind low testosterone and how to increase it. Being an avid reader of anything fitness, working out and eating-related, this was new information to me. (I am trying out their recommended intermittent eating approach with good results so far.)
Downsides: anyone who has not lifted weights with a professional trainer should be very cautious about the exercises recommended in this book. The authors (rightly) recommend many multi-muscle, complex exercises, but done incorrectly will lead to injury. Moves like squats and deadlifts require very specific movements -- much like a golf swing -- and although the photos are descriptive, having a professional guide you through these exercises is essential.
I also found the calculations for determining the calories to eat, by protein, fat and carb, very complex. Another reviewer pointed out that the authors talk about using one's body fat percentage to begin the calculations, but never acknowledge how to get these measurements. I have been counting calories by food resources for a year already, and found their steps to be overwhelming. I don't think most readers will properly manage this without a professional.
I also wish there were more specific milestones to anticipate hitting for each phase of the program. I understand everyone is unique, so it is hard to define how much weight one should expect to lose in each phase, or the gains in weight lifting, but I was left wondering what to expect at each phase from a physiological level.
Overall, worth the purchase, but for casual dieters and weight room novices, this book will feel too complex to execute its principles.
Don't know if it works, but I'm going to give it a shot because the book makes total sense to me.
