You get to 15 minutes by running through most of these routines 3 to 4 times. NOTE: I would NOT recommend performing the classic kettlebell 'halo' as it's shown in this book!

I've had mixed reactions to Selene Yeager's books before (some I like, some are just okay). This one is just okay. Yes, there's a lot of variety, and they're definitely 15 minutes, but there's a few things I wasn't as crazy about...

1. Most (not all, but nearly all) use at least 2 pieces of equipment and often 3: dumbbells, a step, a bench, a stability ball, a pull-up bar (have one of those handy?), a resistance band, a kettlebell, a medicine ball, a foam roller, a BOSU, and and for one medicine ball workout: a partner! I'd have liked it better if there were more workouts using just one piece of equipment for the entire 15 minutes - particularly since these are circuit workouts.

2. Names of routines were too cute by half, such as "Mood Lifting" and "Cowgirl." When I'm flipping through the book, I'd rather not have to use some of that 15 minutes to decipher what body parts a routine actually works. It seems they could have been categorized in way that could be accessed faster.

3. Circuits, circuits, and more circuits, and "15 minutes" is more a matter of approach. You get to 15 minutes by running through most of these routines 3 to 4 times. So I'm guessing that if I leave out a circuit, it's 10 minutes and if I add one it's 20. In that case, these aren't *necessarily* 15 minutes, depending on whether you complete the number of circuits as prescribed.

(NOTE: I would NOT recommend performing the classic kettlebell 'halo' as it's shown in this book! You could seriously strain your lower back.)

Generally, it's no worse than any other workout book, but it's not among my favorites. There's variety and most routines can be adapted to be more challenging. However, I can't past the fact that I really liked the The Women's Health Big Book of Exercises by Adam Campbell, and it's too bad more of those moves (and a little less equipment) didn't show up in this book. I think this would've been a better book.

Nice workouts, but only if you have a fully equipped gym to work out in. You'll need not just dumbbells and a mat, but kettlebells, steps, bands, balance balls, pull up bars, weight bench, etc. to make full use of this book. If you're looking for quick at home workouts, this book is probably not for you. I'll probably pass this book on to a friend who can use it.

The content of this book is great. I wish it offered a slightly more creative selection of exercises; I had already seen a lot of the exercises illustrated, but there were still some new ones that I have been able to throw into my routines to mix things up so I can't complain too much. Also, I was pretty dubious about the possible effectiveness of a 15 minute workout, but the book has some pretty convincing study based arguments to explain it's reasoning, and of course they are not advocating limitting your physical activity to 15 minutes if you have more time on your hands. I myself have not experienced shocking results, but I have certainly worn myself out and been solidly sore the next day using the proposed methods, which seems good to me. Admittedly, I am not in great shape, but I'm not in terrible shape either. If you are short on time, but want to get more exercise, this is a useful book.

However, I feel like this would have been better in standard book form. It's not that the kindle layout is bad, but aside from the first couple of chapters, this is not really a book that one is likely to read from cover to cover in consecutive order, and like any book that one might want to flip through, it gets kind of annoying to navegate back and forth through it in electronic form. I do appreciate that it's available in electronic form because my current location would make it difficult to obtain if that were not the case, but if you are within easy shipping distance, I'd reccomend getting a physical copy. I feel it would be put to best use on the coffee table where you can flip through it and become inspired over and over, rather than having it in a list of titles on an easily burried kindle.

I have always been very athletic, but sometimes I have trouble fitting in workouts. I also find that when I have time I don't know what workout to do. This book has various 15 min workouts that are easy to use and can be modified to suit your needs. The book starts out with body weight stuff and progresses to dumbbells, barbells, benches, swiss ball, medicine ball, and pull up bar. I own a power cage with a stack so I had no problem with the equipment, but even if I didn't I could get by with some dumbbells and an olympic weight set. The book also has sections on kettle bells, stretch bands, and other equipment. overall I would recommend this book, the mens health book of exercises, and the mens health body weight exercise book.

I have always had a slim build and relied on my work, coaching my kids sports and yard work for my exercise. In the past year or so that had become not enough. I put on about 10 pounds over the holidays and felt terrible. I felt bloated and unhealthy. I can't afford a gym membership and don't have the time for it anyway. I found this book on the Men's Health website and with some skepticism I bought it. The book is a quick and informative read. I was doing the easiest work out soon after getting it and quickly progressed to the more challenging. It was easy for me to carve out the 15 minutes, three times a week for the workouts. I think that made it easy for me to stick to the program. I lost that 10 pounds in a month and I feel so much better now.

In my opinion this book is not for an advanced athlete. It is more for someone like me who needs to improve their health. It has done that for me. I have even started to extend my workouts by adding more exercises to my daily regimen.
