Customer Reviews

This book is great for people who want quick and effective workouts.
T. Johnson
After getting Combat Conditioning and doing the Hindu Squats, my knees are stronger with more stability and the nagging pain has significantly decreased!
Robert K. Garcia
It was apparent he was just getting rid of the tapes in an effort to only warehouse the way of the future, DVD's.

Just as previous reviewers of this book have stated, the exercises featured in this book are nothing new. On the other hand, many of these exercises are overlooked in this day and age, which is a shame, because they are excellent conditioning workouts.

If you are not a martial artist, don't let the title of this book deter you from buying it. The Hindu Squats and Hindu Push-Ups alone is just one duo of exercises that will build your stamina by astounding leaps and bounds. I first learned these two exercises over twenty years ago from the late pro wrestler Dr. Jerry Graham, and I was shocked to see how these seemingly simplistic calisthenics worked me like a horse.

While the Squats & Push-Ups appear to be the core exercises of Furey's book, he has a fabulous plethora of exercises to tone and strengthen the entire body. You can build quite a personalized home workout, no weight equipment needed, and get great results.

The only shortcomings of "Combat Conditioning" are incomplete editing and lack of availability. There is one section where a succession of photos illustrating an exercise appears in incorrect order. There is no ISBN number to be found. Therefore, the book has a weak presence on the Amazon.com radar, which is a drag, because I bet Furey could sell many copies if the product had more visibility.

Whether you are striving for Mixed Martial Arts stardom or just want to get in phenomenal shape without the price of a gym membership, this book is a good bet. I would love to see another edition of "Combat Conditioning" in publication: neatened up, ISBN'd and ready for easy purchase!

This book is great for people who want quick and effective workouts. Also, people who do judo or wrestling will benefit greatly. That being said, the books and tapes he has put out since this one are not worth buying. Buy this book and use it and you will benefit; purchase his others and you will feel let down.

The exercises are nothing new. The key to this exercise programme is how it`s put together. The circuit routine is awesome for burning fat.Sometimes you need reminding of certain things.Granted there is a lot of hype -but in this case it is justified, Combat Conditioning is unbeatable for fast weight loss & getting you in shape in minimum time. In @ 15 minutes I work every muscle in my body and have the rest of the day to get on with my hectic life. It is quick ,very effective, and requires no equipment- everything an exercise programme should be. Combined with Navy Seal calisthenics this will really get you in shape fast.

As has already been said, if you're looking for the buff bodybuilder look, then this book isn't for you. However, if you're interested in increasing the muscular endurance, flexibility, and cardio-vascular fitness that combat athletes need then this book is a must buy! I have been using combat conditioning for 2 years and at age 40+ I am in the best shape that I've been in over 20 years. The program has increased my endurance, shoulder, back and neck strength and flexibility to previous unseen levels for me. It has also virtually cured me after I had dislocated my right knee! As has also already been said there really is nothing new here, but Furey was brilliant in combining 3 exercises which target all major muscle groups while simultaneously increasing flexibility. Yes it's true that the back of the book is filled with about 10 pages of ads, but that doesn't bother me because combat conditioning has literally revolutionized my life and fitness level. I would especially recommend this book for you if you do wrestling, judo, or mixed martial arts. Combat conditioning will not give you a bodybuilder's body. But after doing it for a couple of weeks you'll feel so good, in shape, and self confident that you'll probably want to go to Muscle Beach and kick sand in a
bodybuilder's face!!

Other reviewers have already said it all, but I'll add my two cents' worth anyhow. As a book, Combat Conditioning is far less than impressive. At first glance, you'll probably feel you wasted your money on it. But if you make it past that first impression and actually do the exercises--even just the three basic exercises that make up the "Royal Court"--you'll find that the contents of this book are pure gold.

I'm 50 years old and have been using Combat Conditioning as my sole workout regimen for the past three or four years; and I'm easily in much better shape now than I've ever been. I don't do as many reps as Furey suggests for the young, athletic, or experienced, but I do the exercises daily. They've benefited me far more than any other exercise program I've ever tried.

Do yourself a favor and buy the Combat Conditioning videos or DVDs too. Watching Matt Furey do the exercises helps ensure that you'll be doing them right.

More than just a book, Combat Conditioning is a lifetime fitness program--the best I've ever seen.

Most of these exercises are not new, if you've played football or wrestled in high school, or were in the military you've probably done most of these. What makes this book useful is the routines and the motivation. Furey challenges you and verbally pushes you, it always picks me up when I feel like skipping a workout. It has good cross training- road work conditioning programs that give you some place to start. The book is a bit pricey, but its the only volume I would recommend. Furey's other products, in my opinion are overpriced and really don't deliver much. Stick with this book and a jump rope, you should have everything you need for a great workout week in week out. If you want more "pain" in your workouts, I suggest trying kettlebells, those things are just evil.
