Testosterone seems to be the hot topic today for those men whoare aging baby boomers. The concern is that not only is testosterone essential to muscle growth and fitness it is also has a significant impact on male sexual performance. This book lays out the argument in a way that the ordinary man can understand. Essentially it come down to a protein rich diet and muscle building exewrcise via weight lifting. All this is covered with a great 9 week program that will cut weight (fat) and build muscle and strength. Plenty of exercises and recipies to help a person at any physical level. Great book. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743237919, Paperback)

Wide shoulders, narrow waist, thick chest, muscular arms and legs: today's male ideal physique is the same as that of ancient Greece. Aerobics and the Food Pyramid just won't yield that shape, argues Lou Schuler, certified strength-and-conditioning specialist and fitness director of Men's Health magazine. For weight loss and the Greek physique, he proposes the "T" (testosterone) plan: weightlifting and a diet of 33 percent each carbs (mostly low-glycemic-index), fat (the "good" kind), and protein; no alcohol; and minimal sweets and processed food. The book includes a meal planner, grocery list, and recipes. A 100-page, clearly illustrated weightlifting program progresses from circuit training to bodybuilding to power lifting, with both home and gym exercises.

This research-based program was tested on 16 willing, hefty guys. After nine weeks, they lost an average of 18 pounds, dropped waist inches, gained strength and energy, and improved their sex lives. The book includes before-and-after photos and quotes from the happy campers.

Schuler's man-to-man style is clear, direct, and witty ("one gorilla wearing a stringy tank in July is all it takes to leave a bench soaked in ectoplasm"). The Testosterone Advantage Plan is recommended for men willing to commit to a rigorous lifting program to achieve their ideal physique. --Joan Price
