Every workout is intended to do one thing: maximize results. Whether that result is fitness, function and performance, fat loss, or physique improvements, you want your efforts to pay off. What if you had the opportunity to have the NSCA Personal Trainer of the Year observe your workout and show you how you could make it better? Now you do have access to that expertise, with Your Workout PERFECTED.


 


Nick Tumminello, author of Strength Training for Fat Loss and Building Muscle and Performance, knows that a “one size fits all” approach can’t work. That program you’re following—the one you love—may be more harmful than beneficial. Or maybe, with some slight modifications, that program is exactly what you need. That’s why he developed Your Workout PERFECTED. It’s a unique and cooperative approach—one that works to improve, not replace, your routine.


 


 Inside, you’ll learn the following:


 


 • The mistakes you may already be making


 


 • Minor changes to techniques that can produce big results


 


 • Why certain exercises are preferable over others


 


 • Exercises to avoid


 


 • Proven principles to follow


 


 • Combinations and sequences to maximize results


 


 Each of the exercises is accompanied by step-by-step instructions, training advice, safety considerations, and modifications. The workouts are designed for various settings (in the gym, at home, or on the go), and each ready-to-use program is also customizable to meet your specific needs and help you reach your fitness goals. Highly visual and instantly applicable, Your Workout PERFECTED will help you fine-tune your approach to your personal fitness.
