It's shocking, and a real change from the conventional 3 days a week, an hour each day, 6 to 8 lifts, and 2 to 4 sets per lift workout! I'm normally more fond of free weights because they improve balance more. But machines are much safer and allow beginners to exert themselves fully without having to spend a lot of time focusing on proper form.
This workout routine has space for an entire month of training, one short workout per week. You can see the schedule of one workout to your right.
If you already work with free weights, prefer them, or simply don't have access to machines, use this workout. The downloadable PDF allows for a month of workouts, one each week. You can see an example workout to the right. Unconventional, But Effective These workout routines challenge all conventional wisdom about what a good workout should be.
And yet, they work and give excellent results. The two workouts above are great for people who want the most bang for your buck in terms of time for strength gained. They also show how important it is to workout intensely, right up to the point of failure and beyond! If you don't have much time to exercise and want a safe and effective workout, try these.
Or even if you just want a change of pace! References: 1.
McGuff, Doug, and John R. New York: McGraw-Hill. It recommends working out a lot less than most other workout routines.
BBS shows how you can gain significant strength and muscle with only one workout a week that's only 12 - 15 minutes long. And if that didn't just blow your mind, it should!

A Short Body By Science Review McGuff and Little have worked hard to compile a stunningly compelling book about the science and most effective techniques for getting stronger and adding muscle.

The science is truly impressive! In the beginning of BBS they present studies showing that for many individuals, working out 2 or 3 times a week is no better than working out once a week in terms of actual results. So they advocate once weekly workouts. McGuff and Little deserve praise for challenging the prevailing opinions of fitness gurus through methodical research. They present their own training routine, which has been perfected over the years with many clients through observation in the gym — the complete opposite of 'broscience'.
Broscience Definition from Urban Dictionary : The predominant brand of reasoning in bodybuilding circles where the anecdotal reports of jacked dudes are considered more credible than scientific research.
The Body By Science high intensity training routines are the one's I'll present here.
They are extremely simple, and produce great results. Criticism The only criticism I have of BBS is the overly strong emphasis on genetic determinism found in the book.
McGuff and Little place a lot of weight on genetics as the main factor behind your strength and muscle development. In my opinion genetics are certainly important, but not as important a factor as most people seem to think. And while hard work will not make up for not having Olympic-level genes, hard work can take you a lotfarther than you think.
Why, you might ask, am I still here at an age where very few people are able to do a high intensity whole body workout? Here is my experience with telling my exercise story of slow, smooth reps, smooth turnarounds, and working to muscle failure.
I will list these observations in no particular order because some will be more important than others depending on the audience. Most gym rats who buy the argument that more is better will simply not accept the 20 minute workout once a week routine, and will find all kinds of arguments against it.
I still get questions from thirty-somethings about how I maintain my strength and physique at such an advanced age. These 20 minute workout sessions are extremely intense, and mind numbingly boring.

Most gym goers will not stay with this long enough to realize the striking gains they will experience if they do. Accurate record keeping is essential with this protocol. To me, the big plus of slow reps is the ability to use lighter weights with slower movements, all but eliminating the injuries that plague those always wanting to go higher in the bench press, dead lift, etc..
Students starting out on this protocol will still need a trainer. This will be true for some time well into the protocol — some will need a trainer indefinitely. Finally, most people who pay big bucks to join a trendy gym will not be satisfied using it once a week for twenty or even fewer minutes.
They will be tempted by all the fancy equipment and the often absurd box jumping for example urban legends infecting the modern fitness movement. The book touches only briefly on these issues. These mental road blocks should, I think, be examined more in depth, as the actual exercise protocols are really quite simple compared to tackling the ingrained mind sets that feed into fitness in all its iterations.
One last thing, the book does a great job of stressing that recovery, not more and more exercise, is what builds strength.
