From the former editor of Guitar One magazine, here is a daily dose of vitamins to keep your chops fine tuned for a full 52 weeks. The guitar exercises cover several musical styles including rock, blues, jazz, metal, country, and funk. Techniques taught include alternate picking, arpeggios, sweep picking, string skipping, legato, string bending, and rhythm guitar. These exercises will increase your speed and improve your dexterity and pick- and fret-hand accuracy the more you practice them. The accompanying CDs include all 365 workout licks plus play-along grooves in every style at eight different metronome settings.

Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Aerobics - Book/2-CD Pack:
I like the way the book breaks down techniques by day, and the CD is a nice touch. I would recommend this as an addition to a daily practice routine. Specific instructions on how to execute techniques are minimal, but you can get a lot of that from the internet, and still use the book as a source of good practice material. I do not think this book is meant for an absolute beginner, but if you have the basics down, you can definitely jump right in. I've learned that slow/steady practice is much better, so don't be alarmed if you find yourself repeating a day's lesson, or even a week's lesson a few times over. It'll work out better in the end. That's why I would recommend this in addition to other practice materials (like a song, or scales, or other licks). It just helps provide some structure and ensures that you're practicing a range of techniques, and not just one.
