Peak Physique: Your Lifetime Guide to Muscle and Fitness

Albert Beckles, Author, Bill Reynolds, Author Sterling Publishing (NY) $10.95 (160p) ISBN 978-0-8069-6574-1
A 55-year-old Barbados native and winner of the Mr. Britain title twice in the early '70s, Beckles is regarded as one of the world's top professional bodybuilders. Indeed, he regularly defeats competitors less than half his age in a sport that usually favors young people. Disappointingly, however, he gives few credible explanations for the training methods he uses to retain his stamina. As a result, this jargon-filled guide for men is a bland replay of the text-and-photographs book pastiches Flex magazine editor-in-chief Reynolds has helped other bodybuilding champions assemble. Beckles covers diet and exercise techniques but offers little of value to anyone seeking enduring muscular fitness. (December)
