The Advanced Handheld Scanner That Troubleshoots for You

Since the 1980′s standardized Onboard Diagnostic systems (first OBD-I and currently OBD-II) mandated for virtually all cars and light trucks manufactured for the US market have provided automotive technicians, and increasingly DIYers with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Traditionally professional grade diagnostic results required large and/or expensive scanning tools to translate diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of your vehicle when the check engine/malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard goes off. Now there is a much better way using the Actron CP9580A AutoScanner Plus Scan Tool.

CodeConnect quickly pinpoints and suggests fixes specific to your vehicle

The Enhanced CP9580A AutoScanner Plus with CodeConnect does way more than just displaying the trouble codes and definitions seen in other handheld scan tools. At the touch of a button it can also actually help prioritize troubleshooting using the top reported fixes related to these codes, specific to your vehicle’s make, model, year and engine. Once codes register on the device, AutoScanner Plus indicates on screen which codes have the CodeConnect details available. To gain access to these possible fixes, all the user needs to do is push the CodeConnect button in the middle of the keypad and the most probable solutions according to the data on file will be displayed. CodeConnect is a comprehensive database of 4.3 million ASE verified fixes for the trouble codes that cause the check engine light to illuminate, providing a shortcut for troubleshooting efforts. Advanced functionality built into AutoScanner Plus also includes advanced domestic ABS code coverage allowing read/erase capability for most 1996-2010 GM, Ford and Chrysler and 1996-2009 Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and Nissan vehicles (click to see an ABS compatibility chart). Additional features include LIVE engine data, graph LIVE data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, updateable (via USB port), print functionality and much more.

Actron CP9580A Enhanced – Good Scanner for the Auto Enthusiast
I guess I’m kind of picky when it comes to tools and testers for my vehicles. I have a 2012 FORD F-150 (EcoBoost Engine), and really didn’t “need” a code scanner to diagnose a particular problem. However I try to stay up with what technology is available for the backyard mechanic. Additionally, I have not had good experiences at the dealership as far as diagnosing engine issues. So my first line of defense FOR MY OWN KNOWLEDGE was to buy a good code scanner, that would tell me more than just what is causing the check engine light to display.

The Actron CP9580A Enhanced Scanner did just that. It goes WAY beyond the check engine light, giving you real time data on how your engine is performing . . . or not performing! And if a problem is developing, I would rather be proactive and do the research myself, rather than have the dealership tell me a laundry list of techno-talk that may or may not be entirely true. The Actron CP9580A Enhanced does everything it is…

The Complete Book of Abs: Revised and Expanded Edition

Title : The Complete Book of Abs: Revised and Expanded Edition
ASIN : 0375751432



Anyone who works out knows that abdominal exercises have progressed light-years beyond the basic sit-up. In fact, a whole new generation of ab exercises and machines have advanced abdominal workouts to new levels of sophistication, designed for maximum efficiency to provide the trim, toned midsection that everyone wants. But how do you put the exercises together into a routine for your specific physique and needs? The Complete Book of Abs shows you how.

¸  The first ab book for everyone–from beginners to fitness professionals

¸  More than one hundred ab exercises–from traditional crunches and sit-ups to such cutting-edge techniques as corkscrews and hanging knee raises–drawn from diverse sources, including gymnastics, yoga, and the martial arts

¸  Includes the “Fifteen Minutes a Day to Ultimate Abs” system, which will take you from an undeveloped stomach to a rippled washboard look in six months

¸  Dozens of favorite and new routines from America’s foremost coaches, trainers, and bodybuilders

¸  How to be your own personal trainer and put together your own routines

¸  The most up-to-date information on diet and nutrition, including a personal
template to maximize diet-exercise efficiency

Already a fitness classic, The Complete Book of Abs, is the definitive guide for abdominal toning and strengthening. No one who’s serious about working out should be without it.Kurt Brungardt was at the front end of the abdominal obsession. His Abs of Steel video was a bestseller, and the original Complete Book of Abs, published in 1993, was considered the bible of midsection exercises for trainers and fitness enthusiasts. The obsession has only grown since then, manifested by dubious infomercial products, a burgeoning fitness-magazine industry promising readers great abs with almost no investment of time and effort, and (perhaps because of the shortcomings of the first two phenomena) a boom in the demand for legitimate nutritionists and personal trainers. Even Brungardt himself came out with a 1998 book, 3-Minute Abs, to take advantage of the craze.

With all that going on, it seems hard to believe that there’s anything new to say about abdominal exercise. Indeed, this revised version of The Complete Book of Abs doesn’t really try. There is a new prebeginner midsection routine, which leads into the more advanced exercise regimens described in the original book, and a handful of new exercises. But other than that, the expanded sections are in nutrition (several new pages of recipes) and total-body fitness (new photos demonstrating exercises for body parts other than abs).

Still, the original package is a terrific deal: more than 100 exercises, numerous training routines, and lots of basic information about exercise and diet. Each abdominal exercise is rated for difficulty on a scale of 1 to 3 and how risky it is to the lower back. The routines are complete and thoughtfully compiled, and there’s not a bit of advice in the entire book that isn’t scientifically legitimate. That’s why this book–in either edition–remains indispensable for those serious enough about fitness to need information that goes beyond the basics. –Lou Schuler END

ABS-solutely a MUST!
Many bodybuilding enthusiasts hate working out their abs. The abs are arguably the least fun to work out. Having said that, the abs are the first part that catches the eye – whether washboard-ripped or flabby. More importantly, from the point of wellness, the abs are the most important part that needs to be kept strong. The abs are the centre of the human body and hold up the entire skeletal structure. If you have only time to work out one part daily, make it your abs.

I have been using The Complete Book of Abs for 2 years now. It was a fabulous gift from a friend, a fitness buff. Let me just say that this is THE book on working out the abs! This book tells you why one should work out the abs; describes the muscular and skeletal anatomy in respect of the abs; the nutritional aspects; warm-up, stretching and other support exercises; the specific exercises in respect of the abs, and the different systems and routines one can incorporate for various purposes.
