Part One is on "General Physical Preparation". It starts with a short chapter explaining the different aspects of physical preparation. The authors have written this for MMA but it applies more widely. I have read lots of general explanations of fitness this is the clearest and most complete I have seen. Then, the book runs through metabolic conditioning, starting with dynamic warm-up and then moving on to full body conditioning. This section contains a great variety of drills, even more than dos Remedios' book on cardio strength training, which I also recommend. Next are sections on strength training, dealing with exercises to work the posterior chain, upper body pushes, upper body pulls and core work. Part Two explains MMA sports-specific training, separated into standing and ground drills. Part Three consists of Training Routines. First Randy runs through a ten week training programme he would use to prepare for a 3 x 5 minute round non-title fight. Then, he sets out several alternative work-outs ranging from a strength and conditioning work-out designed for a novice to an advanced programme to develop size and strength.
