HASH(0x91431474) étoiles sur 5 Core Performance Essentials 15 janvier 2007
Par Janice Webster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought this book for my husband, because he has loved the first book written by Mark Verstegen, Core Performance (which earns 5 stars). I had hopes that this book would pick up where the other one left off and continue with updated and new stuff. It didn't really do that, Instead, it seemed to be a rehash of the first book without much new. Just a different presentation. If you haven't read the first book, then this one is excellent. However, if you have the first book already, you don't need this one because it doesn't have very much new info to share.

HASH(0x91a1aad4) étoiles sur 5 All you need to live longer 8 mars 2007
Par R. Sebok - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Regardless of age/gender, you should buy this book. I just turned 40, have 3 kids and live a very busy lifestyle. The principles in this book are simple to understand and incorporate everyday.

This book was recommended to me by a business associate of the author. It was specifically recommended because it is the 'easiest book the author has written for incorporating fitness into the normal person's lifestyle' (i.e. for those who do NOT have the time to spend an hour or more at the gym each night). For me, the book is really two books; (1) nutrition 101 and (2) exercise for life.

For nutrition, the author makes it easy to understand the theory of nutrition (i.e. eating). He starts with theory, then grocery shopping, and then the eating schedule. This book does recommend more frequent mini-meals, rather than big dinners. Anyways, some very sound basics to answer the question of what you should put in body for maximum performance and health.

For exercise, the author asks you to commit 30 minutes a day to a core performance workout (ok, with a shower its 45 minutes). For novices, the Core is essentially your mid section (abs, stomach, butt, thigh, shoulder, back, etc.), but the program really hits every muscle group. As for the program, you can do all the exercises at home, without investing in costly equipment. The exercises focus on flexibility, endurance and strength and really do work. I started the program a little over 3 weeks ago and can already "feel" and see the difference. For the record, I've had lower back issues for 6+ years and since using the Core Performance it's never felt better. Not once have I have to 'roll out' of bed in the morning.

Live longer, feel healthier, and look better. Some motivation, 30 minutes per day, and this book are all you really need.

Thanks Mark for making professional athletic training programs applicable to the regular guy!

HASH(0x919d9b7c) étoiles sur 5 Movements not muscles 6 avril 2007
Par P. McCall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As an educator who trains personal trainers my critique on most fitness books for the consumer is that they focus on training individual muscles; for example doing chest press just for the 'pecs'

Mark does an excellent job of introducing the concept of training movement patterns, not individual muscles--this is the secret to top conditioning coaches and Mark does an excellent job of presenting the info in consumer friendly language.

As a personal trainer I will buy this book for clients and teach them exercises out of this book so they can progress or regress the exercises on their own. My goal for clients is to teach them how to be independent when working out and Verstegen's book is a great resource for that goal.

HASH(0x915789a8) étoiles sur 5 A Positive Experience with the CP Books and Web Site 17 décembre 2008
Par M. Hampton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I recommend the Core Performance training program, their books and their website for enhancing your health as well as athletic performance. Here's my experience with the book and their web site:

"Core Performance Essentials" is about building an exercise foundation for the average person/weekend athlete to improve health and well being.

"Core Performance" is for the competitive athlete that wants to undertake a comprehensive, rigorous training program to improve performance

The Core Performance web site contains all of the above training programs and more, allowing you to cycle though different training programs over time. While I was initially put off at the annual price of $80 per year. I signed up after completing "Core Performance Essentials" and consider it to be a good investment.

I am a 51 year old male with merely average, not outstanding athletic abilities. I've done basic jogging/aerobic exercise for 30 years every other day. I don't engage in any competitive sports at present. I exercise to maintain overall health, vitality and weight.

I followed the "Core Performance Essentials" book for nine months, slowly cycling through the levels of workout in this book. I then progressed to an online membership at coreperformance.com, where I have been through two cycles of one of the many online workout programs, called "Live Better, Live Longer". I am on a rational, time sensitive plan of 3 sessions a week, for 45 to 60 minutes a session.

I feel much better on this program. I have better overall body strength. This program particularly emphasizes the stabilization and strength of your major joints - shoulders, hips and knees, and I can tell it. I also simply enjoy the workout sessions better than extended sessions of aerobics and conventional resistance training alone. In general, each session is a blend of basic floor/stabilization exercises, circuit resistance training, aerobic work and stretching designed to improve overall physical fitness.

As I read Core Performance Essentials, I found that I agreed with the central premises of Mark Verstegen and his staff. Aerobic exercise alone, and for extended exercise periods greater than 30 minutes, provides limited benefits for most individuals and athletes (unless you are a competitive runner). Extended, conventional weight training is also of limited benefit in terms of improving overall health and athletic performance.

Verstegen and staff, having trained and rehabilitated many collegiate and professional athletes for years, also found that conventional aerobics and weight training did little to protect athletes from injury. As such, the Core Performance exercise philosophy encompasses a range of exercises design to prevent injury and strengthen your major joints, back and muscles, as well as improve athletic performance.

The vast majority of us are terrible at setting up and going through training cycles with health and performance goals in mind. We all know that we are supposed to change routines every few weeks, but very few of us do. Change and variation is built into all cycles of Core Performance exercise - in the books and on the web site. My web site generated workouts change a little bit every session, which I like.

Also of note on their web site, is the fact that all of the exercise routines are demonstrated in short video clips from different angles. I go to the site about once a month to review my routines and brush up on proper form. While it would be great to have a personal trainer help on form, this is a good alternative.

Lastly, the nutrition section is sound. Its not a radical departure from current thought in nutrition, but it does give the reader a focused, practical view on how to plan your meals and snacks in regards to athletic performance and weight control.

If I wasn't doing this program, I think I would still incorporate the framework of the Core Performance system in some way. Perhaps combining Pilates, Yoga or similar floor/movement exercises with a focused, short aerobics program, for example.

If you are looking for an extended program or path to improve your overall health or to athletic performance, I recommend starting with one of the "Core Performance" books and trying out the exercises for 8 to 10 weeks. If you still like it, consider building and progressing your routines with a subscription to their web site.

HASH(0x91701444) étoiles sur 5 Core Performance for Weekend Warriors 6 février 2008
Par J. Arnold - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I bought the original Core Performance and found it very informative. I was in the mode of lifting to get bigger instead of better. But, I also found the workouts to be very daunting with the time and equipment I have at home. Core Performance Essentials is more for me. It is Core Performance for Dummies, simpler workouts that still improve your performance as a weekend warrior. The only thing I see missing is the regeneration stretches. I gave my copy of Core Performance to a friend and never got it back and wish I still had the list of stretches. I now do yoga instead, FITtv's Namaste Yoga works great. I would recommend this book if you like me want to improve but do not have the time to be a professional athlete.
