Fantastic exercises and very inspiring.,
This review is from: The Shaolin Workout: 28 Days to Transforming Your Body, Mind and Spirit with Kung Fu (Paperback)
This is a superb book. The moves are all demonstrated step by step by colour photographs of the Sifu. Its split into 28 lessons, the first 9 being pure stretching exercises which even by themselves are excellent. The remainder cover basic kung fu movements. There is no doubt the physical and mental benefits of the exercises are fantastic. I always look forward to exercising using this book. I also like the writing style of the Sifu who peppers the exercise descriptions with lots of inspiring comments. A massive bonus is the meditation pages. There is one after each lesson and it is basically a page of bhuddist wisdom on how to "polish" yourself and your life. I find these particularly inspiring and uplifting.
