Darden (The Nautilus Diet), the former director of research at Nautilus, and the author of many books on fitness, here challenges his readers: follow his routines, and you'll be able to reshape your physique by losing 21 pounds of body fat within six weeks, he promises. But this is more than another quick weight-loss scheme or a pep-talk and guide to body-building. Chapters consider the benefits of exercise and how it can prevent men from aging prematurely. The author believes it is important to develop muscles for performance?leanness, as well as fitness. The good news: this can be done while simultaneously losing fat. So the book discusses equipment and how to use it. Darden also reconsiders the best strength-training exercises. But this is not enough in the battle of the bulge. So he provides sensible guidelines for healthier eating and living, making a point of distinguishing nutrition fallacies from facts, and insisting that it's unnecessary to waste money on protein supplements or free-form amino acids, which many body-building gurus have been known to promote. Although strength training and body-building may not be for everyone, those interested in learning more about the concepts, exercises and routines may find Darden's strategies exactly right.

Darden, a well-known fitness author whose books have sold more than three million copies, offers a program for men who are giving way--fitness-wise--to middle age. Always a proponent of strength training, Darden continues that predilection here, arguing that strength training becomes more important the older one gets since stronger muscles can alleviate much of the stiffening and discomfort associated with aging. The heart of the book is a six-week strength training program designed to reduce body fat and improve cardiovascular performance as well as develop muscles. Because banging around the weight room at the fitness club three times a week--no matter how intensely--is not enough to redefine one's fitness level, Darden also provides nutrition guidelines and advice on sleeping and reducing stress. This is a potentially beneficial program filled with solid, commonsensical advice presented in a clear, conversational style. Illustrated with black-and-white photos. Wes Lukowsky
