9780071343312: The Maffetone Method: The Holistic, Low-Stress, No-Pain Way to Exceptional Fitness (International Marine-RMP)

Dr. Maffetone's unique training system for champions proves that the kinder, gentler approach actually works the best. This fitness regimen has worked for champions and non-athletes alike- because it's based on Dr. Philip Maffetone's deep understanding of how the body works. Maffetone has used that knowledge to develop The Maffetone method, his successful low-stress fitness program, which can be tailored to any individual. It means "training slower to go faster," says Mike Pigg, world champion triathlete and Maffetone client. The Maffetone Method includes: A ten step program to reduce stress and increase overall fitness; Exercise techniques designed for increased results with decreased pain; The real lowdown on some of those fad diets. In short, this is a fitness regimen for champions that everyone can use to reach their own goals whether it be running a marathon or walking around the block.

Review:

The Maffetone Method is a "gain without pain"-graduated exercise plan based on the individual's formal self-analysis of needs and abilities, balanced against his or her mental and physical condition.

To this end, Philip Maffetone puts a great deal of emphasis on providing a formal problem analysis questionnaire which the reader is asked to complete. If, on completion, the reader then studies the key provided, he or she will be able to identify problem areas, which could be stress, dietry problems or aerobic deficiency.

Maffetone adds a word of caution, however, urging the reader throughout the book not to "overdo his/her selected exercise". Aware that an exercise may prove therapeutic for one reader while exacerbating the problems of another, he urges and provides the support for regular self-monitoring.

The Maffetone Method follows a simple, logical, easy-to-read sequence that corresponds to the original fault-finding questionnaire. Medical jargon is largely avoided, but where necessary, Maffetone takes pains to explain difficult terminology in layman's terms.

Leaving nothing to chance in the exercise programme, Maffetone differentiates between the needs of the casual exerciser and those of the serious athlete, down to the correct and well-fitting footwear and the necessity of a good, well balanced diet.

Interesting, if unorthodox, The Maffetone Method should appeal to most adults engaged in (or wishing to begin) regular exercise. --Peter Kidd
