not too many people who don't
have THAT as a major goal of their training!
there are plenty of books on the market that give
you plenty of information on fat loss, with varying
degrees of accuracy and effectiveness.
Burning Furnace" is a fat-loss package
put together by Rob Poulos based on the techniques
and information he used to get HIMSELF into excellent
condition. This is always something I look for
in a program - does the author of the program
LOOK like he (or she) actually uses the information
And Rob has
certainly taken himself from a bit of a marshmallow
(even though he was training!) to lean and ripped using
the info in this book.
Let me tell
you right up front
this book is more targeted to
the beginning and intermediate trainer. There is certainly
info that an advanced trainer will find useful but if
you've been around the block in your training, you're
probably going to know a fair bit of this information
though, it is VERY effective stuff - I don't agree with
everything in the book but the information will definitely
get you from Point A to Point B. You WILL lose fat by
following the advice and programs in this book.
And if you ARE a beginning
trainer, you're going to learn a lot from this manual.
Rob has included
some excellent background information on fat loss and
how it happens in your body
why the old-fashioned
"long slow cardio" approach is completely
mistaken (we're definitely on the same page with that),
how to eat and supplement for fat loss (nothing crazy
- just good advice), how the body reacts to different
types of exercise, even information on how to change
your mindset for optimal results.
levels of strength-training programs in the book are,
to be honest, a bit thin. I would have liked to have
seen more options in terms of the training end of things
but Rob certainly covers a lot of ground in terms of
overall training concepts and nutrition (and supplements).
thing about this approach is that it does make it simple
for a beginning trainer to jump right in and get started.
He's included plenty of exercise instruction info to
make sure you know what you're doing when you get into
Bottom line, if you're looking for some good, basic
fat-loss info, this book is an excellent choice.
included a stack of bonuses and additional resources
to go along with the main program, which really increases
the overall value of the package nicely.
As I mentioned
above, it IS more targeted to the "beginner"
if you're just getting started in your
training career and are looking for fat loss as a primary
goal, "Fat Burning Furnace" will get the job

of the last decade searching for the fastest and most

and healthy for the rest of his life.
