KIU Book Club: The Men’s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts by Selene Yeager


This is the last installment in our Men’s Health book review series for the Men’s Health Month of June and it is yet another workout manual, seeing as a large chunk of men’s health hinges on the physical condition of their bodies.

According to the book's review on, new research shows that as little as 15 minutes of resistance training is just as effective in spiking a man's metabolism—his fat-burning furnace—as a workout lasting more than twice as long. All it takes is 15 minutes to achieve lifelong results—and men are more likely to stick to an exercise plan if it's chopped down to those 15 minutes.

The Men's Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts contains fast-paced circuit training and interval workouts that boost calorie burn, build muscle, and fry belly fat in half the time of regular workouts. Readers can choose from at-home, body-weight-only workouts and total-body barbell programs to exercises that target major muscle groups—the chest, arms, legs, and back—and sport-specific workouts. Other highlights include;
