The former NFL great, now a Today show correspondent, teams up with his renowned trainer to reveal the phenomenal lifting program that made him a gridiron star

As a running back for the New York Giants, Tiki Barber smashed team records and made numerous Pro Bowl appearances.

Now Tiki and Joe provide everyone with the strength secrets that transformed Tiki into the pound­for-pound strongest man in the NFL and a true force on the field.

Tiki Barber's Pure Hard Workout is a rigorous powerlifting regimen based on lifting heavy weights with the biggest muscles in the body and covers the ins and outs of nutrition, stretching, warming up, and resistance-based cardio workouts. Filled with three hundred color photographs that capture Tiki performing each exercise, with in-depth instructions to guide readers through executing each move, this book outlines the true path to results.

Tiki Barber
Tiki Barber, former running back for the New York Giants and current Today show correspondent, has seemingly led a charmed life. Whether on the field or in front of the camera, the Smiling Giant makes everything look easy. But it has taken a lot of motivation, hard work, and help from those around him to get where he is today.

Here, he recounts his extraordinary life to date -- being raised in semirural Virginia alongside his twin brother, Ronde, by a strong single mother who made every sacrifice to make sure her boys had all the tools they needed to succeed in life; getting drafted in 1997 by the Giants, where he eventually became a standout running back after overcoming injuries and flaws in his game with the help of his coaches and teammates; his stellar 2005 season, when he finished the year with 2,390 yards from scrimmage (the second-highest total in NFL history); and the controversies that marred the Giants' 2006 season, including the surprise announcement of his retirement at the age of thirty-one.

As much as Tiki takes you into the locker room, past the sidelines, and onto the field to give you the view from inside the huddle, this book is also an inspirational look at his arduous evolution from ordinary player to elite -- on the field and off -- and at the amazing people along the way who have helped him achieve his goals. Tiki takes on the role of both the interviewer and the interviewee in special "Tiki Interviews Tiki" sections, as he asks and answers the really tough questions.
Tiki is a riveting, inspiring read for all who want to know what really goes on behind the scenes, and for anyone looking for the strength to step up and follow his or her dreams.
