Clarence Bass' Latest Work "Take Charge"

I just received a copy of Clarence's latest book, his 10th I believe. The focus in this book is bringing forward to the public some of the latest research on fitness, both in terms of strength and bodybuilding and in terms of cardio.

One of the points made in the book is that strength and cardio training can support each other and are both needed for those who wish to get and remain fit. New thinking about high intensity vs. long duration cardio training, and resistance training that is effortful rather than focused on light or heavy weights are discussed.

Clarence points out that the newest research supports what we already know - that exercise is a great weapon against the challenges of aging. Much has been made of the hazards of sitting in recent news report, and that issue is discussed in the book as well.

I don't think a Bass book would be complete without some new insights on nutrition, and this one does not disappoint on that score. It closes with some very inspirational stories from people whose lives were changed by a new focus on healthy living. I think our readers will find "Take Charge" a very useful addition to their libraries (more information is available at

By the way, the book includes some great photos of Clarence, showing that he is still in great shape at 75!  Clearly, he practices what he preaches.
