All-Equipment and Multistation Workouts

There are chapters that focus on different types of equipment, or even no equipment at all.  Some exercises use dumbbells while others use barbells, cables, or full multi-station home gym machines.

What Customers Are Saying

If you are someone looking for a book on exercises that you can perform at home with minimal equipment, this is the book for you. The majority of customers who reviewed the Men’s Health Home Workout Bible say it is full of useful information for men who want to improve their physique by working out at home.  Although some of the exercises use fitness machines such as a fully-equipped multi-station home gym, there are many exercises in the book that use only dumbbells, barbells, cables, or no equipment at all.

The book is ideal for beginners because it provides a thorough explanation of everything you need to know about strength training, building muscles, and burning excess fat.  You’ll learn the correct techniques for performing the different exercise routines.  Even expert weight lifters can learn something new from the book.

On the negative side, a few customers noted that the book focuses primarily on developing bigger muscles.  There are very few exercises on cardio training.  Customers also reported that there is no discussion on nutrition and diet.

Basically, the Men’s Health Home Workout Bible is limited to resistance exercises.  But it does provide a lot of useful information and is a great addition to a fitness library. 

You can purchase this book from the Amazon website.  The paperback edition costs only $15.63.
