Product Description

Review

“If you want what other warriors don’t have, you need to do what other warriors don’t do. I want victories and that’’s why I follow this program.” (Ricardo Almeida, UFC, Pride FC veteran and Middleweight King of Pancrase)

“This training is intense—and it gives me the strength, speed, and endurance I need to take on and defeat the world.” (Roger Gracie, 2005 ADCC Absolute and 2007 BJJ World Absolute Champion)

“If you’re tired of being the nail, let Martin Rooney turn you into the hammer!” (Renzo Gracie, ADCC and Pride Fighting Champion)

“Rooney gets the most out of MMA fighters. He doesn’t stop at physical conditioning. What separates him from other top-flight trainers is his strict emphasis on being mentally prepared.” (Frank McNeil, ESPN.com)

“You have it all in the book. As someone who has seen the benefit of innovative, functional, and sport specific exercises, I think Martin Rooney is giving people a tremendous advantage in their MMA training with this book.” (Kenny “Kenflo” Florian, UFC Fighter and BJJ black belt)

“A fantastic book! The approach of associating MMA techniques with the exercises that will help improve them is something people will not have seen before.” (Kid Peligro, Acclaimed martial arts author and BJJ black belt)

Format: Paperback
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Martin Rooney has effectively given us the conditioning road map. The book is of the highest quality, the photographs are excellent, the editorial succint and clear. For anyone who want the conditioning edge, this is the book.

Fighter or not TFW provides a broad range of excercises and drills. The book follows a logical path giving an overview of MMA and then gets into Warrior Anatomy covering warm-ups, training by bodypart (don't confuse this with traditional body split training) and then goes on to cover specific programs, nutrition and injuries. You can follwo the programs or mix it up and simply focus on the areas that you need to work.

As for the weight training aspect, I'm a RKC Kettlebell instructor and consequently the Kettlebell is my tool of choice. I simpy us kettlebell drill and lifts to replace the conventional weighted drills.

The most valuable aspect of TFW is the way it translates many conventional drills into a MA context.

Most important, once you've read the text, looked at the pics...Go Train!

This review is care of double World Champion ju jutsu fighter Braulio Estima who owns and uses this book

Braulio's first language is Portuguese.

"... This book was very well set up for fighters who want to have a good
quality on the strength and conditioning specific for fighting. I used
and still using most of the workouts. For the Abu Dhabi 2007 I did
loads of it on the last case of my training and I found that helped a
lot on my results. Hurricane workout is awesome. Well done Martin
this book is 10 out of 10, I do recommend for everyone who wants to be a
warrior.

This is a very well put together fitness manual. Regardless of your martial arts discipline there will be something you haven't tried in here. Even if your not a combat athelete this book will get you into top shape. Its a complete overview of the physical training for the fastest growing sport on the planet. I have been very impressed with the completeness of this book from the range of excersises to tips on cutting weight and as a humble boxer have found it very informative and beneficial to my conditioning.

I bought this book along with 2 others for my other half who is a muai thai fighter - he's currently on deployment for 6 months so is unable to train at his regular gym, this book along with the others are perfect to aid him in continuing his intense training an conditioning programme whilst away from home. I'm told he'd recommend to all MMA fighters.

This book is a great asset for those starting out or who like me have been in established in a martial art for years (14) and fancy seeing if there is anything different they can do. There are clear pictures and a high quality of production and effort has been put in throughout.

Whilst you may know a number of the excercise by other names this helps give you a different view point and if nothing else justifies what you have already been doing. For the price a great asset to any martial artists or sports persons library. Buy this with the companion book Ultimate Warrior Workouts for a full view on fitness.Ultimate Warrior Workouts (Training for Warriors): Fitness Secrets of the Martial Arts
