High Performance Handbook Review – Is Eric Cressey’s Custom Workout Program Good or a Scam?
As the co-owner of Cressey Performance, also known as the best baseball training facility in the world, Eric Cressey has written a handbook for people that are interested in high performance training.
This book is designed to help an individual take his or her workouts to the next level. While most people write simple blogs or show you video clips of them working out Cressey takes the time to break down what you should be thinking while working out. These methods are to help you maximize your workouts so that you are targeting the areas of your body where you want your muscles to grow. The biggest problem people have is that they do not workout properly and as a result they develop muscles very slowly.
When you purchase this handbook you get a variety of materials. The most important is the High Performance Handbook Training Manual. This is your guide to figure out what kind of workout routine you want to complete. There is also the quick reference guide that helps you remember certain material presented fast. You will learn about both the flexion and extension programs to help you transform your body as you see fit. Additionally, depending on how much time you have will determine the type of training template you want to follow. There is a 2, 3 and 4 day training template that you can use to help you get into shape. If you cannot workout all throughout the week then there is no worry. Dedicate 2, 3 or 4 days a week and the handbook will show you how you can still get into shape.
This is because Eric has dedicated a great deal of time to listen to dozens of questions people have about working out. He answers just under 100 questions related to working out and fitness.
You will have your answers to questions regarding proper form and technique while working out to what type of program to follow depending on your lifestyle.
A nice feature to the High Performance Handbook is that Eric Cressey has training goals for every type of person that wants to workout. He understands that every person has a different body and has unique goals set in mind, so he has developed a variety of strategies to help as many people as possible reach their fitness goals.
Not sure if you are going to keep your gym membership?
Even if you do enroll in a gym they may not have every machine that you need to exercise properly. Instead of neglecting a portion of your body the High Performance Handbook gives you solutions to one of the most common workout problems – how to workout all areas of your body.
This guide helps to provide alternative exercises so that you can still complete workouts to help you reach your fitness goals. Many video programs expect you to invest a great deal of money into equipment while the High Performance Handbook makes it easy for you to workout with a limited amount of equipment.
Now you have the ability to dedicate enough time towards working out. This is because you can complete as little as 2 or 3 workouts a week and still make drastic changes to your body over a short period of time. There are few programs that require such a little commitment. Avoid videos that expect you to dedicate a few months of your life to rigorous training every day. Work with an expert that knows how to get results out of your body by helping you figure out what it takes to help your body get into shape.
What We Didn’t Like
We all know that no workout program is perfect. What we didn’t like about the program is that there is no active forum to get questions answered. We personally didn’t have any, but even after answering 100 questions in his book, there are bound to be more questions from individuals while going through the program.
If you’re brand new to working out, it might be best for you to hire a personal trainer for a few weeks until you have the basics down. This book is really directed towards those who have been working out long enough to know what different exercises are and a general idea of how to do them.
With these few negatives aside, we do endorse the High Performance Handbook. Cressey has helped some of the world’s top athletes get into shape to compete at the highest of levels. He is a well known expert in the fitness community and this program lives up to his reputation.
In addition, he is so confident in this book that he provides a 100%, no questions asked, money back guarantee. With all things considered, it’s easy for us to recommend Eric’s latest work.
