Read Evolution

Ood and in the 2012 film Magic Mike and he will expand on that role in this summer’s highly anticipated Magic Mike XXL In Evolution Manganiello shares his lifetime of experience and research in terms of diet cardio and anatomy to bring you the only fitness book you’ll ever need in order to look and feel your best Throughout the book are black and white photographs and Manganiello’s step by step workout routine that combines weights intense cardio and a high protein diet With a lifetime of athletic achievement behind him Manganiello was named one of Men’s Health’s 100 Fittest Men of All Time alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger Michael Jordan Bo. I liked the idea of this book but I don t see how your everyday non celebrity guy can relate to much in this book Talk of prepping for shoots not eating anything to look good on camera it comes off to me as elitist The diet I liked a good balance with a cheat meal and some sweetsmind you the sweets were sugar free jello puddingjello cups and sugar free ingredients last I checked on jello cups are usually nothing natural and nothing but chemicals why not treat with the real thing instead of something made of fake ingredients Especially when the diet is trying to maintain a pure state Seems a bit backward especially when bringing up the background of mostly organic and the plug of grass fed meats I could have went without the mild snarky mentions of how many ex girlfriends who got in his way of his evolutional body I mean I get the point trying to be made but why bring up the exs Point could have been made without directly mentioning them I found it tacky Also tacky The gift from the gods crap As if trainers of celebrities are the only trainers in the world who have the background to guide us lowly gym everydayers I get that the ppl who formed you were just regular dudes back in the day but I also felt a elitist vibe here Also don t need to be reminded that you don t NEED to make money off us non celebrities from this book because you make enough in your day job Gotcha This could have been so much better but some little tidbits just rubbed me the wrong way I really thought it was to help us regular joes get a werewolf body with a werewolf workout but why the heck would we be obsessed about being on camera or needing a tan Sun damage leads to skin cancer by the way Not the greatest recommendation there Also there are many mentions of working one s muscles to failure the whole point of some of these lifting sets and not resting in between I was super surprised at the absolutely NO mention of rhabdomyolysis or rhabdo as it s known in the CrossFit world and as Joe s trainer was involved in CrossFit I was really hoping this topic would be discussed Another tidbit I m a runner was a hardcore treadmill runner for a good 10 years until I started burning out and took my feet outside with my short stride I m 5 4 on a good day I don t even think I could hop on the treadmill at an incline of 10 or 7 or whatever it was with a treadmill speed set at 12mph No way To be honest that s extremely dangerous and would be absolutely jarring for your joints considering how many times you have to uickly jump off to the side to rest for 15 seconds and repeat 10 times I d fly off the treadmill and there s no way my legs could stand that speed and imagine once you started to get tired Maybe if I was 6 5 like Joe I don t know but those speed intervals made me CRINGE This book could have been so much personable and relatable but some of the little things just blew it off course However I d still love to workout with Joe Maybe I could teach HIM a thing or two

I ve had Joe Manganiello s Evolution sitting on a shelf since Christmas and hadn t gotten around to reading it yet It s a uick read really It took less than a day because only about half of the book is text The rest consists of photos of Joe in workout action and explanations of certain movements The book seems to have been uite successful I saw him in an interview not too long ago saying the publishing company wanted of the same kind of thing and whoever manages his social media accounts I doubt it s the man himself continually re tweets photos of people claiming the book has really changed their lives Let me first be clear on what this book is and what it is not Despite the fact that Mr Manganiello is a fine specimen of the human male by any account he has no formal training in fitness nutrition or physiology nor does he claim to be an expert in any of these fields The book is not co written by anyone with formal fitness credentials What we then have is simple anecdotal examples of what works for him There is nothing wrong with that Sharing life lessons is part of the human experience and we can certainly learn from the example of others but we also need to be aware of what exactly it is that we re entering intoManganiello s Evolution serves primarily as a motivational and inspirational tome He shares his story of being the weakest kid on his high school sport teams and how he managed to find the best trainers and learn all that he could about changing his body into the form he was looking to inhabit There are a lot of self help and mindset comments like Don t accept yourself as a finished product Ever Weaknesses don t mean that you re weak It means you have so much you can accomplish There is a major focus on mindset and Manganiello relates the story of Roger Bannister the first man to ever break the four minute mile He did so by challenging the conventional wisdom and believing it could be done and also trained in such a way to focus on the goal It s definitely a relevant and inspirational story The Evolution workouts are HIIT High Intensity Interval Training much like CrossFit but without thankfully promoting the brand Manganiello also goes way beyond CrossFit in adding cable machines leg pres and curls and other things one need standard gym euipment to performThere are a few places where this book falls apart for me Manganiello refers a few times to a former girlfriend or perhaps two of them it was hard to tell who he felt held him back from reaching his true potential One instance was that she didn t want him skydiving and the other was that the girlfriend wasn t happy living across the street from a gym He seems to ignore what might be the real reasons behind these objections and focus on how it affected him The skydiving story is framed within a conversation with one of his coworkers who needed multiple surgeries after a skydiving accident The accident was so bad that the guy lost part of his foot and shattered his leg in seventy two places Manganiello s takeaway from the conversations about this man s injuries was find a new girlfriend who won t worry about you maiming or killing yourself The issue with living across the street from the gym was not really elaborated Who knew why the girl didn t like the place I m not sure why either anecdote was included or why the editor felt they were relevant and left them there They had nothing to do with anything and just felt like sour grapes and a way to vent some left over anger about old relationships For a guy who wrote a book about focusing on being productive in life this was certainly unnecessary and snarkyEvolution is geared toward men The verbiage used indicates that Manganiello is talking specifically to men here He uses the term most guys uite often throughout the book I get that I guess Much of this is him sharing his own stories and experience of a journey from a skinny kid to a the image he presents today It does seem like a missed opportunity though Manganiello has made his name based on his looks and a major piece of that is his appeal to women He his editor publisher etc had to know that a large portion of books sales would be to women and that men are not the only half of the population interested in exercise or looking for inspiration to make life changes The pages and pages of photos are certainly proof that the publisher was looking to sell this book across gender lines yet like in most of the fitness industry the words are chosen in an effort to sell men one thing and women something else The other day I wrote about wanting to throw a weight at the male instructor in my spin class after he made a comment about the hand weights being light so the ladies didn t have to worry about bulking up There are a whole lot of us delicate females who completely understand that heavy weights are the way to go While we may not want to look like Joe that doesn t mean that the same lessons about how to make the journey don t apply to the XX chromosome set Motivational Yes if you re looking for someone to tell you you can do itHelpful Perhaps The photos and examples of form for various movements were wise to includeFluffy Hell yes There s a chapter dedicated to how Joe gets ready for shirtless photo and film shoots Sigh On one hand it s all about how he s not different than anyone else then he s talking about how he pumps up for the cameraThe bottom line is it s a celebrity workout book not a fitness guide or text Take it for what it s worth absorb the motivational efforts of the author and enjoy the photos That s what I did
