When the California Department of Corrections took away their weights, the inmates created an ingenious exercise regimen using their own bodyweight. The push-up and pull-up type workouts enabled them to develop sleek, muscular physiques remarkably similar to those of Olympic gymnasts. Author John Barrett Hawkins immediately recognized that people in the "real world" would benefit from these training methods and set out to write PENITENTIARY FITNESS.
With no professional credentials to speak of, Hawkins decided to base the book's recommendations on the findings of leading fitness and weight-loss authors and on research studies that were conducted at the world's top medical schools and universities. Over a 10-year period he studied hundreds of resources on the subjects of weight loss and fitness, and applied that knowledge to the convict's unique style of training. The result is THE AMAZING WEIGHT LOSS FORMULA.

Sample # 1RAISING YOUR METABOLISM: 3 SUCCESS SECRETS
The word "calorie" is defined as a unit of energy, and the word "metabolism" describes the rate at which the body burns energy on an ongoing basis. Fat is the body's back-up supply of energy. Weight loss occurs when you achieve a negative energy balance, which requires the body to burn fat for fuel. The faster your metabolism is, the more efficiently your body burns energy. Here are just a few of the guaranteed strategies for raising your metabolism from the secret-filled new book The Amazing Weight Loss Formula: A Bodyweight Exercises & Workouts Training Program for Natural Bodybuilding, Strength, Muscle Building and Fitness.
Secret # 1: Do high-intensity interval training.
Your metabolic rate is determined by the mitochondria, the power plants within the body's cells that mix food with oxygen to create energy. The goal of interval training is to raise the heart rate to 90 percent of its maximum capacity through short intervals of intense activity. This type of exercise forces the mitochondria to become more effective at processing oxygen, which enables the body to burn energy at a greater rate, 24-hours a day.
Secret #2: Do resistance training to develop more muscle mass.
For every pound of muscle you gain the body expends an additional 50 calories per day just maintaining itself. With resistance training you create micro-tears in muscle fibers. Muscle growth occurs when the tear is repaired through a combination of proper nutrition and rest. This treatment also increases the metabolism, because your body burns more energy during sleep as it repairs the micro-tear.
Secret # 3: Eat a high protein diet.
During digestion the body burns 30 percent of the protein you consume, compared to eight percent for carbs and two percent for fats. This is known as the "thermic response" which describes the amount of energy that is required to digest your food.
