Let me get my gripes out of the way first. The book reads like a rough draft, with grammar errors to the point of distraction. I've read J.D. Johannes' blog entries, which are very well-written, so I am certain he's a good writer, or a good (enough) writer. That last sentence will only be appreciated by those who've read the book. I would even offer to do some editing for them, because the content itself is excellent.

This book is a book on how to lose weight, build muscle, and most importantly, build a custom workout that is right for you. And when I say "right for you", I don't mean some pansy workout to make you feel good about yourself in some new-agey way doing the same workout every week. I mean getting results by keeping data, and acting upon it. And you make the dietary changes that muscles need to grow and increase in strength. Practical and effective, and remarkably simple, which as a simpleton, I love. Please read.

Very solid program that focuses on ensuring that you make progress over the middle- and long-term. If you've been going to the gym for a couple of years without seeing significant progress (and would like to change that), this program is for you. The author starts out with a heavy emphasis on machine-based exercising, which should be moved on from as soon as possible, but the program can be adapted to better training movements (e.g. front squats, weighted pullups, cleans, etc.).

Great book, easy to follow, anyone can do this system and... IT WORKS! I used to eat all day, snacking on mostly carbs. Being vegetarian it is more of a challenge to get the protein my body needs. Doing the system, losing weight EVEN on my cheat days! So happy with my results!

I have been into physical fitness all my life and even though I am now an old geezer I still work out seven days a week. In my lifetime search for different fitness routines I have did the U.S. Army Ranger workouts, Navy SEAL workouts, and numerous other martial art fitness routines. I have also read and written reviews on various fitness programs. When I saw this book (Fit for Combat: When fitness is a matter of life or death by J.D. Johannes with Nita Marquez) for a bargain price on Amazon I immediately purchased it.

This book proves the point that you can always pick up valuable information and tips to improve your workout routine no matter how many books you read on the subject. Interestingly, the author’s experience with exercise matches mine in many ways. I used to lift heavy weights for years and also built myself up doing hundreds of different exercises along with cardio workouts.

This wonderful book approaches fitness from the perspective of a former Marine, who is now a combat filmmaker having followed the Marines with his camera to various battle zones. In this respect, this book is focused on practical combat fitness routines, which includes working your muscles for more strength and power, and instead of doing a long cardio routine, he and his co-author suggest doing sprinting programs so you do not lose your physical strength gains. This 270 page text also focuses on nutritional aspects in this workout routines.

This volume is organized into four parts. The first part covers the author’s experience and how he came to follow the present fitness routine. The second part goes into detail on the strength and power program and also covers the sprinting program. The third part explains how to move forward in your fitness goals.
