Présentation de l'éditeur

Men love shortcuts. If there's a way to accomplish a job quicker and more efficiently, they're all for it. That goes for work and working out. Now, new research shows that as little as 15 minutes of resistance training is just as effective in spiking a man's metabolism--his fat-burning furnace--as a workout lasting more than twice as long. All it takes is 15 minutes to achieve lifelong results--and men are more likely to stick to an exercise plan if it's chopped down to those 15 minutes.

The Men's Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts contains fast-paced circuit training and interval workouts that boost calorie burn, build muscle, and fry belly fat in half the time of regular workouts. Readers can choose from at-home, body-weight-only workouts and total-body barbell programs to exercises that target major muscle groups—the chest, arms, legs, and back—and sport-specific workouts. Other highlights include:

  • A special section of 15-minute core workouts to build a rock-hard six-pack
  • An eating plan with delicious meals that take 15 minutes or less to prepare
  • Workouts for the office or when you're traveling and can't make it to the gym
  • Hundreds of tips from America's best trainers, nutritionists, and exercise scientists

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent !! 22 septembre 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Bon d'accord, on n'a pas les chaines musculaires, on n'a pas les groupes sollicités...mais autrement, que ce livre est pratique, regroupant aussi bien kettlebells (un peu), les haltères, le poids du corps, le swiss ball, le sand bag....

Pas approfondi, certes, mais très large pour des routines prouvées.

Dans la série M.H, mon préféré !!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Short, intense workouts are definitely the way to go 20 mars 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I totally agree with the philosophy of this book and have found short, intense workouts to be MUCH more effective in building muscle and burning fat than long, drawn-out gym sessions. (The saved time is quite a plus too.)

This book gives some great circuit routines that will get your heart pumping and your muscles working. There are gym-free total body workouts, which also are great cardio; dumbbell workouts for your upper and lower body; barbell workouts meant to build maximum muscle mass; ab workouts; cardio routines; and more.

I've already tried several of the workout and was surprised at how challenging they were! This book doesn't disappoint!

P.S. I also highly recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Build Healthy Muscle Series) because it straightened out a bunch of confusions I had about how to build muscle, lose fat, and be healthy. I was making quite a few mistakes and didn't even know it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 78 short workouts 27 octobre 2011
Par Peter Tsang - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The basic idea of this book is to work the body in about 15 minutes.

Here's how you do it. You focus on a few key exercises and move quickly from one exercise to another, with mininal rest time between exercises. Then, you repeat the exercises in a circuit, again with minimal rest.

These workouts work on increasing strength, by building muscle and strong bones, thus burning more fat. These workouts emphasize getting a lean strong body, rather than bodybuilding, and is, therefore, not a general bodybuilding book.

In the number and variety of workouts, this book is excellent. It contains 78 workouts, all 15-minutes long. Some workouts are bodyweight or require dumbbells. Others use a pull-up bar, a barbell, a kettlebell, a medicine ball, a stability (Swiss or large) ball, an exercise band (tubing), a foam roller, a jump rope, a BOSU, a bench, a cable machine, a step, and so on.

Instruction and exercises for each of the workouts vary, but in general, one may do a circuit of 3 to 7 relatively intense exercises, with little or no rest between each exercise. Then, rest for 60 between each circuit. Finally, repeat 2 more circuits.

All exercise photos are large and in color, clearly showing their positions, with descriptions.

I did workout #3 (bodyweight) and I was breathing heavily during the exercise and I did a modified version of workout #7 (dumbell blast 2) and it was intense and made me sweat. I loved the concept of 15 minute workouts and I liked this book.


If you liked this book, try the women's version of this 15-minutes book. This shows more bodyweight and dumbbell workouts.

If you want just bodyweight exercises, (with no equipment), get this book, "You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises" by Mark Lauren and Joshua Clark. This is excellent in the range of exercises which, again, do not require equipment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome fat burning excercises... sparing you some free time!! 21 décembre 2011
Par Vaiarii - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As a young father, my Wife and I do not have much spare time anymore to exercise nor do outdoor trips (hiking, mountain biking,etc.).
We felt very sad about that.
This book of optimized exercises helped us being motivated again by gaining results as impressive as if we were training 3 times longer !!
But don't imagine these are miracle recipes... the basis is that you don't lose time resting between the workouts, so the 15mn are very, I mean very efficient...
Results do come fast and after 2 weeks (training 1 day out of 2, as suggested in the book), I am already feeling my abs recovering their former strentgh, more durably than before. Needless to talk about the thighs and arms and shoulders...
The workouts in this book won't help you build "big" muscles, but they will help you gain EFFICIENT muscles, EFICIENT strength, and endurance.
You just have to complete your weekly workout by one "HIIT" (High Intensity Interval Training), ideally outdoor (in my case: skysurfing/paddling : ) ) and you're done.
And the main benefit is that you have... more spare time to rest between the daily workouts and after each day's workout !
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for awesome (and motivating because of the variety!!) workouts, especially if they don't want to spend hours excercises because of her/his busy lifestyle !

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The concept is what's most important here... 4 janvier 2012
Par Kailua Dude - Publié sur Amazon.com
Not to go all Zen on everyone, but the concept of this book and its companion book for women is what's most important here. It's well laid out in chapter 1 "The Genius of the 15 Minute Workout". Simply put, shorter (but very high intensity) workouts are optimal in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. Hands down. This book gives you tons of workouts that fit that bill. If you buy in to the concept (as I do), this book is for you. If you prefer to spend your time on the elliptical, then, well, you should still buy this book and change your approach to training :).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Makes me sweat! 22 mai 2013
Par DGNiehau - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have been a regular at the gym for years and have kept a steady level of fitness since my early twenties (just turned 59). Keeping my weight at a healthy level has been difficult for the last 10 years or more. I have been as heavy as 225 but have maintained around 210 for several years. I have been trying to get my weight under 200 for many years with no luck. 205 was about where I would hit a plateau and just could not get under. I had tried running more, lifting more all to no avail. So I did some research and discovered the world of HIIT and Tabata exercise. I bought myself a gym timer and this book and went to work. Using only a couple of very basic body weight exercise routines from the book I started a whole new way of working out, along with skipping rope as a warm up. Using straight 5 minutes of skipping rope to warm up my new routine then only takes about 20 to 25 minutes. But they are the most intense 25 minutes I have put in at the gym since my days in the army. I have been using the exercises and methods in this book for almost eight weeks now and my weight is at just under 194 pounds. Some will scoff and say it does not work, but I am telling you it works for me. I am leaner and more muscular than I have been in years and I put it all on the methods I took from the book. If you are serious about getting something done at the gym besides spending time and you are not body builder (which I am not by any means) then I recommend this book. And you do not even need a gym. I just like the atmosphere of other people working out and the availability of some equipment and machines that I have worked into my work outs, still using the HIIT or Tabata methods of intensity and timing. Be prepared to work hard. I am expending more energy in my 20-25 minute work outs than I was in over an hour of just weights and cardio machines. By the end of my work outs I am completely gassed. And it feels great.
