The Miracle Seven

I just purchased "The Miracle Seven" by John E. Peterson and Wendie Pett. It's coverage of isometrics, and other exercises, called "Transformetrics," intrigued me so I thought I'd give it a try. So far I've only read the first six chapters, and they have all been build-up, with slight coverage of what the seven miracle exercises are: John McSweeney's Tiger Moves.

The claims of increased strength, size, and health, through these tiger moves are pretty strong. Wendy claims that after a snowmobile accident she had pain and limited use of her shoulder due to a broken clavicle. Within 3 months of diet and exercise using "Transformetrics" she was able to compete in a dance competition despite her doctor's instructions to forget about it.

Most of the reviews of the book on Amazon refer to the "isometric" exercises, however, none of the "tiger moves" are isometric, but are more in line with what John calls "Dynamic Visualized Resistance" Exercises, or DVR. I'm hoping to see the isometrics later in the book.

I was searching for a good book to help me get through my diet. In the end I googled it and found this site http://www.hungryforweightloss.com.

They are giving away a free ebook called "365 tips for healthy living". I didn't expect it to be any good because it's free but it's actually brilliant so I thought i'd share it here :)

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
