"Best Shape - Shortest Time"

... my functional strength and improved my overall physical appearance at least as well, if not better than when I took expensive supplements and did weightlifting. I'm naturally thin, and I think that as I have grown and matured, I realize that getting great results over time without injury is much better than straining my joints with heavy weights. Honestly, I look different now than I did when I was a weightlifter. My physique is better. To sum things up, I get a great workout in less time than when I lifted heavy, and I feel healthier, too. Thank you, John Peterson!

... but I am able to put on some old clothes that have not fit in a while. I don't even workout like they recommend. I do the exercises about 2 or 3 times a week and still getting fantastic results. I will now increase my workouts to about 4 or 5 times a week. I am 46 and not in the best of shape and I have never gotten sore from doing these routines and I add a few exercises from other parts of the book.

"What I Found From This System"

... and, according to these authors, were the invention of a fitness expert of the past named John McSweeney. McSweeney discovered them by observing how animals exercise. From the start posistion of each of the exercises you powerfully flex certain muscles, and then, while maintaining tension, you move the particular body parts through their natural full range of motion. You stop at either end and increase the level of flexing while holding it for the count of one, tiger, one. Then, maintaining tension, you retrace the movement to the start posistion, stop and flex again. You do this ten times for each of the exercises. They are more strenuous than they sound. After awhile of trying them a few times I found my muscles feeling like they wanted to do them again, because they liked them and benefited from them. They require no equipment, take about twenty minutes to do, can be done anywhere conveniently, and leave the muscles with a pleasant "afterburn" effect. The rest of the book talks about nutrition and other exercises you can add as you progress. I'm glad I bought this book.

... jump-roping, lunges, burpees, etc. We spend no more than 40 minutes and both feel that it's a better workout than the treadmill/weight-lifting routine. I wish the book was a spiral bound, though, as we are still learning the different exercises and it would be nice to be able to leave it open to a page. I can definitely feel the difference in my upper body strength after 4 weeks, and my posture is much better. We also got John Peterson's other book, Pushing Yourself to Power, which has more of a variety of exercises.

The time savings is great, but even better is the muscle strength that I am quickly regaining without weights or going to a gym to exercise.

"John E. Peterson Is The New "Charles Atlas""
Jan 08 2008
Charles Atlas, THE WORLD'D MOST PERFECTLY DEVELOPED MAN, passed away in December of 1972. The world has seen plenty of monstrous steroid-bloated grotesqueries such as Arnold S. ...

... since that time, but no one has come close to matching the near-perfect flowing symmetry of Charles Atlas. The methods of Atlas were all-natural, no apparatus, no steroids. Just good nutrition, sound sleep, a positive attitude, and using your own God-given body as the greatest exercise machine ever devised.

At last a genuine successor to Charles Atlas has come upon the natural fitness scene in the person of John E. Peterson. Taking up where Atlas left off, Peterson has updated the Atlas course with modern knowledge of nutrition and exercise physiology. Plus, John Peterson matches Charles Atlas in height, weight, measurements, and overall symmetry and flow. John Peterson's methods are all-natural, no apparatus except your own mind and body, as well as ancient esoteric knowledge from Hatha Yoga.

In this book, John Peterson--who at fifty five looks to be in his early thirties--gives you The Miracle Seven. Seven non-apparatus exercises that will build you up or slim you down, and you won't need any exercise devices at all! None! Just your own body. No, these are NOT calisthenics or isometrics, but something very new and revolutionary. (New to the Western world at least.) In just a few minutes a day YOU REALLY CAN turn your body--yourself--into what you've always dreamed of being. Fit, trim, athletic, gracefully muscled, the envy of everyone except others who have also discovered The Miracle Seven.

I also direct the reader to two other titles by John E. Peterson: Pushing Yourself To Power--arguably the single greatest book on fitness and natural exercise ever written--and The Isometric Power Revolution.

Start your journey with The Miracle Seven. You may very well discover everything you've ever wanted in an exercise program, not the least of which are effectiveness and brevity.

... office bound most of the time and have had no time to do any other form of exercise in this time): I have lost inches off my waist and my overall musculature has improved tremendously - particularly my arms, lats, shoulders and pecs. My chest size is up 4 inches! There are tons of other exercises in this great book which I am now ready to attack. What really surprises me is how much more toned I am ... any how I highly recommend this book - simple to understand and really good results - probably the best small book on isometrics I have ever come across.

... benefits I have seen from this book do not agree with the claims, they surpass them.

I have had two lower back surgeries that were as a result of 600 jumps on active duty over 20 years. I also started out at a whopping 118 pounds soaking wet. After 17 years or so of weight training, I ended up at a reasonable 195 pounds, roughly 18% bodyfat (5'10"). However, I paid I price along the way. Besides the LB pain, I had chronic joint aches, problems sleeping, and energy levels that were so low it felt like I had the flu all of the time. I would hit the gym and it would put me down for several days in a row.

I found this author after quite a bit of time researching the subject of energy management on the 'net. This was not a fly-by night purchase. I read the book and tried the exercises just as John stated.

I can without a doubt say that the first workout had me feeling better than I had in years. I had more energy for the next several hours than I have had since my early 20's, with none of the pain or discomfort. I felt like I could lift a house. After the third workout, which I did in front of the mirror as the book suggests, I could not believe that was me in the mirror. In a Freudian slip, I told my wife, "Man look at those muscles! If I just looked like that, I'd be happy!" I had never looked as complete, balanced, and muscular as I had killing myself in the gym.

Of course, some will say, you were just pumped up. Perhaps. But I will tell you that I have gone in a belt size, comfortably, in 10 days, without doing anything different. I know the author gives some very sound advice on diet, but I have always been a bit of a weakling on self-discipline when it comes to nutrition. Nonetheless, a belt size is gone. Over. Kaput. Finis.

It probably sounds too good to believe. I might be hard-pressed to argue with you if you'd have gotten with me a month ago. As it sit here in my office, I am looking at my fitness library with publications from Flex, Mike Mentzer, Ironman Magazine, Muscle and Fitness and most of all, Joe Weider's underground fitness principles. If you have been around the gym awhile, you have seen the legions of "Weider Principles" such as the "Weider instinctive training principle", the "Weider eclectic training principle", or my favorite, the "Weider muscle confusion principle"!

I don't mean to knock Mr. Weider personally, nor any of the other erudite fitness authors. But for you naysayers, it is not that I have not reached the point you have in experience and research. I have already been there, and I am way past it. That has been my experience, anyway.

Of course there will be those who reject the methods out of hand. But that is to be expected of any claim, especially when the message is one that is positive and helpful.

Some people dwell on fault and criticism instead of objectivity. Now I am not saying that there are not some people out there that might reasonably disagree, but I think they would benefit surprisingly well from giving this a good ol' college try and not dispute it for scholastic reasons alone.

This has changed the view I had of fitness for good. I can assure you that my circle of friends will benefit from this as I did as they watch the progress. I think it is time to update my library with more on this subject and relegate some the other publications to the "Weider trash can principle" section.

Have faith in this system and yourself, and Good Luck!

My clothes are fitting better too. The hardest part is stepping on the scale and not seeing weight loss. But, I know this is okay because muscle weighs more than fat. I think if I keep up with the excercises, the weight will eventually come off.
