    Review – Push Pull Swing by Myatt Murphy

    “Push, Pull, Swing” is an excellent guide for beginning lifters of dumbbells, kettlebells and sandbags. We get an excellent philosophy of working all three of the planes if our bodies (sagittal, frontal and transverse) with good descriptions of each and examples of the exercises included in each. This is followed by a simple but excellent description of each of the three tools mentioned above including how to select your beginning weights and purchase guidelines for each. Then we get a brief practical anatomical discussion of the important muscles, divided into pushing, pulling, swinging and combination muscles. There is a good basic discussion of nutrition. Basic terms are defined in easy to understand language.

    Part 2 is the exercises themselves. These are grouped by DumbBell, KettleBell and sandbag. The exercises are well described with easy to follow instructions and hints on performance. The pictures are good and show the exercises well. The quantity of exercises is plentiful and the selection is good.

    Part three is the routines. The first chapter is how to build your own routines based on the exercises and the three planes of movement. Then are several chapters on sample routines well laid out and easily followed.

    The book is well and clearly written. The pictures are good, including some motivational pictures highlighting each chapter. The audience is obviously beginners, although there are things to be learned by intermediate and advanced lifters.

    I highly recommend this book to men beginning to lift dumbbells, kettlebells, and/or sandbags.

    As a long-time professional fitness writer and instructor I avidly read Myatt Murphy’s work in Men’s Health Magazine and other articles eager to absorb his knowledge; he knows his field and has the credentials and writing talent to prove it. Taking the science and research of the fitness industry and interpreting it for easy consumer understanding isn’t easy, but Murphy makes it so. I found Push, Pull, Swing to be a no-nonsense, practical approach to training just as he promised–coaching people away from machines and to the basics of free weight lifting–or should I say pushing, pulling and swinging! The book gave me many “Aha!” moments as I recalled exercises or tips that I will continue to share with my clients and I now feel like I have a new encyclopedia of facts and photos to use as references. I enjoyed the periodic tips and Did You Know? items he added and I wish there had been more of them as they provided key insights and facts.

    If you want a good workout plan, the back of the book is filled with customized, easy to follow charts. Nice work–and good workouts–“old school” is the way to go!

    This was an excellent guide on the benefits of using dumbbells, kettle bells. and sand bag training. Very easy to read and the exercises were a great guide to learn properly and to just review as refresher. Also, the benefits of each style of training is great for someone looking to workout at home with this equipment- specifically tells which type of equipment is most cost efficient and best for training goals.
