Slow Burn

A while back I blogged about my foray into the world of “Slow Cadence” workouts.

Slow BurnI was delighted to find that the author of The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution: The Slow Motion Exercise That Will Change Your Body in 30 Minutes a Week, a book about slow cadence workouts, found my post and commented on it. He suggested I take a look at his book, which I have, and have found it incredibly interesting.

What if Slow Cadence exercise could replace most of what you’re doing – like aerobics? Weight bearing exercises for osteoporosis? What if you only needed to do 2 15-20 minute strength training sessions a week to get physically and cardiovascularly fit?

The book is fascinating. I was challenged by the chapters on stretching and on aerobics, and especially the comments about “fit” vs “healthy”. It’s given me a lot of food for thought, and is revamping the way my husband and I get our strength training done.

If you’re serious about your health, this is a “no miss” book!

  1. Thanks Darlene for the blog post! I’m all a-blush.

    FYI – My new book is out for kids. It’s called Strong Kids Healthy Kids. Weight lifting is indeed great for kids in every way.

    If you need any advice on the training, feel free to email me!


  2. You’re very welcome, Fred. We really did enjoy the book, and read it cover to cover – which is a rare thing for me with this kind of book.

    It actually lit a whole new fire under my husband, as he’s become quite discouraged about not being able to lose weight despite his herculean efforts. He read the book, and then got us all set up to do it. We went Tuesday for the first time. We had a lot of fun working it out together. I bought him the book for Christmas (we were using the library’s copy before).

    Your kids book is my next project. It’s waiting for me at the library today. If it inspires my kids, I’ll be eternally indebted!



  3. Weight lifting does wonders for kids Darlene. And when you combine this with a low sugar, low carbohydrate diet, it is amazing what happens to lean and obese kids alike.

    Again, any questions – shoot ’em over!
