Dr. Ben's Training Exercise

S.Ma.R.T.-EX is a system of exercise invented and developed by Dr. Vincent "Ben" Bocchicchio in 1974. He's the creator of slow resistance training, which is a mainstream fitness technique used by trainers worldwide.

In this phenomenal book, you'll learn a program based on a circuit of resistance exercises performed twice a week with at least 2 days of rest in between sessions.

All movements are slow and continuous. At the point of muscle failure (the inability to perform another repetition in good form), your set is completed. Sets are performed with as little rest between them as allowed by recovery from a breathless state of exertion.

The S.Ma.R.T.-EX exercise program is a series of seven resistance training exercises performed in a specific sequence, usually completed in 15 to 20 minutes, twice per week.

When you purchase 15 Minutes to FITNESS: Dr. Ben's SMaRT Plan for Diet and Total Health, you'll be subscribing to an exercise system with a 30-year proven history of getting results with an average of less than 40 minutes of exposure per week.
