Im Ausdauertraining kündigt sich eine Revolution an: Die Dauermethode, bei der man über lange Zeit in einem moderaten Herzfrequenzbereich trainiert, wird durch das metabolische Training abgelöst. Hierbei wechseln sich extrem fordernde Belastungsphasen und Erholungspausen ab. Dieses Training, das sich mit Hantelkomplexen, Zirkeln oder Intervallläufen umsetzen lässt, steigert die Herzleistung, baut Kraft und Muskelmasse auf und reduziert Körperfett. Es ist deutlich wirksamer als Joggen oder das Training an Cardiogeräten, nimmt aber weniger als die Hälfte der Zeit in Anspruch. Der weltbekannte Fitnessexperte Martin Rooney präsentiert in diesem Buch zum metabolischen Training Hunderte bebilderte Übungen und zahlreiche Workouts sowie ein komplettes 12-wöchiges Trainingsprogramm. Er fasst den aktuellen Forschungsstand zusammen, zeigt neue Warm-up- und Prehab-Techniken zur optimalen Verletzungsprävention, gibt Tipps zur Ernährung und zum Gewichtmachen. Dieses Trainingsprogramm ist ideal für Kampfsportler, aber auch für alle, die in kurzer Zeit viel Körperfett reduzieren und ihre Ausdauerfitness verbessern wollen.

Witty, compelling, and shrewd, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men is about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self. The Western world is in a crisis of discarded honor, dubious integrity, and faux manliness. It is time to recover what we have lost. Stephen Mansfield shows us the way. Working with timeless maxims and stirring examples of manhood from ages past, Mansfield issues a trumpet call of manliness fit for our times. “My goal in this book is simple,” he says. “I want to identify what a genuine man does—the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhood—and then call men to do it.”

Boys who don't play sports are often the targets of bullying, but a boy's worst bully may be the one he can't see: society's expectations about how he should act, how he should relate, and how he should play. Overlooked by a society that reinforces impossible standards of "masculinity," boys who are uninterested in competitive sports or have non-aggressive personalities are often vilified and bullied for being different as they grow up in the shadow of America's obsession with bigger, faster, richer, and stronger. Through a fascinating assortment of in-depth interviews, clinical case studies, and examples from popular literature, Dr. Janet Sasson Edgette and Beth Margolis Rupp illustrate how these boys are relegated to a second-class social status simply because they can't make a free throw or because they can spell better than they can run. Compassionate, empowering, and instructive, The Last Boys Picked will help parents, teachers, coaches, and caregivers identify the social and emotional hurdles that these boys face. It offers specific action steps to help any child build resilience and a healthy self-esteem-and tips for talking to them about their experiences and teaching them to face the schoolyard-and the world-with confidence.

In recent years, the concept of “peak oil”—the moment when global oil production peaks and a train of economic, social, and political catastrophes accompany its subsequent decline—has captured the imagination of a surprisingly large number of Americans, ordinary citizens as well as scholars, and created a quiet, yet intense underground movement. In Peak Oil, Matthew Schneider-Mayerson takes readers deep inside the world of “peakists,” showing how their hopes and fears about the postcarbon future led them to prepare for the social breakdown they foresee—all of which are fervently discussed and debated via websites, online forums, videos, and novels. By exploring the worldview of peakists, and the unexpected way that the fear of peak oil and climate change transformed many members of this left-leaning group into survivalists, Schneider-Mayerson builds a larger analysis of the rise of libertarianism, the role of oil in modern life, the political impact of digital technologies, the racial and gender dynamics of post-apocalyptic fantasies, and the social organization of environmental denial.
