Don't Lose Out, Work Out - Rujuta Diwekar

Rating – 4/5

One line for the book: An eye-opener for people who spend hours together in the gym without making any progress.

About the book: The book conveys a very important message: “Don’t work hard, work smart” applies to exercise as well.

What I love about the book: The way Rujuta digs into “Exercise Science” so that we work smart and don’t waste our valuable time or injure ourselves.

What I did not like about the book: A bit too technical for a lay person like me. Maybe I need to revisit this book after spending a couple of months in the gym so that I follow the gym lingo.

What I learned from the book:
  • Exercise and physical activity are different. You need both for a fit body.
  • You need to be regular with your gym.
  • You need to practise both aerobic and anerobic forms of exercise to see the best results. Doing just one of them only damages your tendons, bones, ligaments, and joints.
  • Eating right and sleeping well is essential for your body to recover from the damage that the exercise brings upon your body. The damage and then the recovery pays off soon in the form of good health.
