Published at: 05/05/2020
ISBN: 1510753478

An overview of the 3 types of resistance bands will help readers put together their own “mini gym” that can fit into a small bag.

The Physics of Resistance Exercise
Author: Doug Brignole
Published at: 19/08/2020
ISBN: 1606794973

This is the best exercise books that can benefit anyone who is interested in efficient resistance training. Most books only offer insight into the techniques found effective by the author ("I did it this way and so should you"). Mr. Brignole's book approaches weight training from a much more analytical and intelligent perspective; he uses basic physics principles to rate the efficacy of exercises for each major muscle group.

This book represents a great deal of research, thought and effort on his part and will be his most noteworthy accomplishment to date, in my opinion. It's truly rare to find such groundbreaking work, backed by science and written by someone with actual in-the-trenches experience. In an industry dominated by dogma and pseudoscience he has offered fresh, logical material presented with sufficient explanation without being overly dry or redundant. I very much look forward to more work from Mr. Brignole and hope that this book becomes a common resource for gym goers very soon.
