Editorial Reviews


"While writing The 4-Hour Body, I conducted thousands of tests and experiments and consulted with more than a hundred scientists, doctors, and world-class athletic coaches. It was a three-year quest to find the smallest inputs that create the largest outputs. On the endurance front, one name came up again and again: Brian MacKenzie. If you want to go from zero to marathon in 12 weeks, or perhaps run 100 miles and dead-lift two to three times your body weight without struggle, he's your secret weapon. Listen and learn."—Timothy Ferriss, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Body

Pre-statements for this:

I have been coaching endurance athletes for 10 years, mostly runners with a few triathletes thrown in. I attended USAT and USATF level one clinics many years ago. I have dozens of all-americans, conference champions, school records and NCAA trophy teams in XC and Track.


1) The sections on recovery and tissue mobility are worth the price of the kindle book. Myofascial release is given little attention in standard running/endurance texts though it is very important to overall muscle health and function.

2) The form sections are complete, but please refer back to the title of the review. I'll address this later, but it's a solid review of the pose method. Dr. Romanov's books are available, so for further info consult those...


1) The standard Crossfit assumption is how runners just do LSD, paying no attention to mobility/strength/coordination/flexibility, etc. It's that we repeat the same general pattern, distances and exercises from week to week without viewing a runner as a total athlete. It's flat out insulting - majorly insulting - to most running coaches. Part of a "new way" of training is the intonation that the "old way" was flawed and poor.

2) There is nothing new - not even remotely so - in this book. "The runners of tomorrow will be strong. The runners will develop themselves through lifting heavy weight and running sand and hills; anything for a heavy, sweating effort." Percy Cerutty (the legendary Australian coach) said this... In 1955!!!!!

would really like to give it a 2.5/5, but all 2.5 comes from the layout and presentation.

the main reason i give this 2 stars is that this is a plan for general fitness and will not help you sent PR's at the longer races and has some bad information.

- The layout and presentation of this book is fantastic and among the best I've seen for instructional books. Each section has a color-coded tab you can easily flip to. Then there are many photos taken from different angles to supplement the text. In terms of fitness books, the layout/presentation of this book is the best I've seen.
- The mobility section is a must read in terms of content. Can't wait for K.Star's book to come out.
- mid-line stabilization discussion is right on.
- section on hydration is a must read.

cons: (note - i'm not a biker or swimmer so my review does not include critiques on those sections)
- in terms of form, this book clearly prescribes doing several exercises at best sub-optimally, at worst incorrectly. for example the bench press and deadlift. so i was interested to see if this bad form was a cross-fit thing and went to the main CrossFit exercise demo website and found this book does not follow what even CF says in terms of setup and form with these exercises. As these are two of the big-3 lifts and they couldn't seem to get them right, I read through the rest of the exercise demo's in the book with a grain of salt. even if it has the best presentation in the market, what good is an exercise book if it doesn't teach the exercises correctly, even according to its parent organization?
- on the internet people claim CFE ignores the benefits of the LSD. This book clarifies that when elite runners are doing LSD runs they are far more intense than rec.

Format: Paperback
I bought this for my 53 year old buddy, and he was successful in dropping 25 lbs in six months and finishing the Marine Corps Marathon, with a surprising lack of injuries. There are great coaching tips in this book to correct the kind of unconscious bad form that adds up to chronic pain when you pound it 10,000 times in a row. I wish that I had this kind of information when I was young, before I ground up my knee and spine just trying to gut it out.

This book is geared toward the bulk of the population interested in general fitness training, and particularly one or all of the Triathlon sports of Running, Biking, and Swimming. The gist is to get your form right as the first priority (extensive great info on this was a highlight for me), and then to use a higher mix of interval training (along with strength training), as opposed to just pounding out more and more miles. The net result is a more manageable training schedule for working folks, and a lower risk of the kind of chronic overuse injuries that tend to plague those who train in long distance events without professional training.

Efficient, Safer, and Effective approach. Lots of useful details.

I've been following the Crossfit endurance program for the last 38 weeks and this book has now provided a simple, comprehensive reference guide for the elements of the program. It includes sections on the principles of Crossfit, endurance activities and all the various lifts and movements. So far it has saved me a few visits to YouTube searching for demonstrations.
