9780061215292: Faster, Better, Stronger: Your Exercise Bible, for a Leaner, Healthier Body in Just 12 Weeks

Are you weary of cookie-cutter fitness plans devoid of anything you can actually use? Or programs promising great abs by Monday?

Eric Heiden, M.D., and Massimo Testa, M.D., are renowned physicians who've spent their lives facing every conceivable exercise problem, helping both elite athletes and people who want to finish a 5K or achieve lower blood pressure.

Part I of this book is a treasure trove filled with everything everyone should know about fitness but that even the best athletes do not, including how to start (or restart) an exercise regimen; eat before, during, and after a workout; lose weight while getting fit; treat aches and pains; diagnose fatigue; harness your thoughts; and select the activities best suited to you. Part II unveils a twelve-week fitness program, tailored to your needs, which will optimize your time, efforts, and results.

Faster, Better, Stronger, named one of the top ten books of the year by Disaboom.com, is highly inspiring and fun to read, with stories from Dr. Heiden at the Olympics and from Dr. Testa about helping the world's top cyclists as well as elderly and obese patients.

Doctors rarely make guarantees, but Dr. Heiden and Dr. Testa are willing to guarantee this: Everyone can get better. Including you.

About the Author:

Eric Heiden, M.D., won five gold medals in the 1980 Olympics. Then he became a champion cyclist and received a medical degree from Stanford University. Together with Massimo Testa, M.D., one of the foremost cycling trainers in the world, he founded the UC Davis Sports Performance Center. Both authors live in Park City, Utah.



Massimo Testa, M.D., is one of the foremost cycling trainers, physicians, and exercise physiologists in the world. He has been a professional cycling team physician since 1985 and has worked with some of the best pro-cycling teams in the world, including the one that ushered a U.S. team into the international spotlight for the first time.



DeAnne Musolf has written for The Economist, the Washington Post, Life, and Fortune. Her next book is Catapult: The Biology of Ambition. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Review:

“Wow—what a perfect combination: Eric and Max! A book on general fitness by this incredible team could change a person’s life.” (—Jim Ochowicz, founder and general manager of 7-Eleven and Motorola cycling teams)

“Extremely well-written and fascinating, this book can make a tremendous difference in how you feel and how you perform. Thumbs up!” (—Michael Castleman, author of Nature’s Cures and Before You Call the Doctor)

“Eric Heiden wants you to know that exercise doesn’t have to be hard work; it can be play. [Faster, Better, Stronger] is easy to read and doesn’t get bogged down in the science.” (USA Today)

“[Faster, Better, Stronger] explains high performance athletic concepts in simple language and provides safe and sane training advice to the masses.” (Sacramento Bee)

“Max Testa is changing the way Americans train.” (Bob Wassom, Disaboom.com)

“Max Testa is changing the way Americans train.” (Triathlete Magazine)
