From Publishers Weekly:

Exercise gurus come and go, but the Marines remain our most enduring apostles of fitness. How they achieve and maintain their lean muscularity at a peak functioning level is shown in this superior manual. The cornerstone of the Corps' fitness regimen for men and women, Cohen learned at Marine bases, is conditioning of the torso's upper and lower muscle groups as well as of the cardiovascular system. The title's "3X" refers to three primary weight-free exercise groups to be performed in three cycles on three alternate weekdays, a flexible system easily adapted by civilians. In addition to a series of progressive exercises, Cohen includes Corps methods for strength and body-fat testing. There's no double-talking excess here, just lots of common sense about true fitness.

From Library Journal:

There aren't any dramatic or new techniques for becoming physically fit in this program. It is a "back to basics" approach characterized by simplicity. Founded on accepted physiological principles, it emphasizes overloading, progression, and individualization. Lower-body, upper-body, and cardiorespiratory conditioning are developed with old standby exercises such as dips, pushups, pullups, and running. Personal fitness tests, personal progress charts, and the Marine Physical Fitness Test are included. The Marine Body-Fat Test with anthropometrical measurements is explained, but no mention is made of skinfold measuring or underwater weighing. Overall, however, this is a valuable resource for the fitness conscious man and woman. Kenneth Tillman, Health & Physical Education Dept., Trenton State Coll., N.J.
