90Second Fitness Solution - Fitness & Weight Loss by Pete Cerqua offers a program that anyone can do. It is simple, short (90 seconds) and he says it works!
I read the book back in 2010 and promptly got 'hooked'. Who wouldn't like to get fit using just two 'positions' and holding each for 90 seconds?
I found it easy and effective. This is so simple, so fast AND it provides a complete workout ! Get a copy. Try Cerqua's program for a week. And at the end of the week you may find yourself really happy. You will have found a fast, easy solution to being fit - no matter what your age.
Pete Cerqua is a physical trainer. He has a fitness studio in New York City. If you know New York, you know that New Yorkers want things to work fast. They are busy. They do not want to spend an hour working out.
After years of researching...reviewing every fitness workout program, Pete Cerqua discovered one particular kind of strength training offered the best results AND that doing just two specific exercises for 90 seconds on five days a week resulted in full body fitness. Fitness as good as long hours at the gym can produce.
Amazing? Yes, but Cerqua has the proof in the many persons he has helped. (Read his book 90second Fitness Solution and I think you will be convinced..)
After I read Pete's book I tried the two exercises. In just a week I was saying, " Wow!" My energy energy improved by the second day! I found muscles relaxing that had not relaxed in ages. And I actually looked forward to doing these two exercises.
Still the 'proof' of any program is whether I stick with it. I have started more exercises programs than days in a week. But I tail off on them after just a month or tww. But here is is 4 years later and I am still doing these exercises. They are so easy and quick.
Pete Cerqua does include some scientific studies in his book to show his method does work. Also, if you are concerned about your weight, Pete offers a very simple approach to eating that his clients say 'melts off pounds'. But that was not the main point for me.
As I aged I had developed some flab. And I, like most persons over 60, I want to stay independent and that means retaining strength and good balance.
One of the most important aspects of Pete's program is that prevents fragility. Fragility,or weakness of muscles, is the bane of those over 60. It is fragility that can interfere with daily life. Half the people in nursing homes or assisted care facilities are there because of fragility....and for no other reason.
When arms or legs have become too weak do the necessary activities of daily life, that is a problem. We may need a cane, a walker or wheel chair but more importantly we need someone else to cook, clean and give help with other daily activities.
And there is the research! Scientific studies show that people loses about 1% of muscle strength every year after age 35. By age 45 that is 10% of strength. 10% is not too noticeable. But by the time we are 65 we will lose 30% of our strength . That means it becomes more difficult to get out of a car, carry a bag of heavy groceries and do ALL the other activities of daily living. It can also mean that we do not have the strength (or balance because we lose balance at the same rate) to keep ourselves from falling if we trip or stumble.
The 90second Fitness Solution by Pete Cerqua will show you how to prevent and even reverse age related fragility. The book is well worth the low price. Take a look at the book and its reviews at Amazon. Just click:
