The workouts take me over an hour to complete every set and rep, but the full-body workouts are very efficient.

This is a very well thought out book that has a great deal of good information as well as a plethora of individual exercises and workout routines.

The way the program is designed allows you to safely and effectively condition your body to complete the very challenging "300 workout".

First of all, in response to the guy complaining about training every day and seemingly knowing it all about workouts, apparently he couldn't be bothered to actually READ the book. It clearly states that you should do FOUR workouts per week. Regardless of the breaks or consecutive days, no more than four.

This is a very well thought out book that has a great deal of good information as well as a plethora of individual exercises and workout routines. The instructions are fairly clear for the exercises, and the diet principles are sound. My only real issues with this book are that some of the exercises are a little bit ridiculous and the charts are somewhat open to interpretation.

The exercises: tire flips, sled pushes, sledgehammers, etc. all require special equipment. Some real-world alternatives to these exercises would've been great since not everyone lives on a farm or has a giant MMA gym in town.

The charts: some of the charts aren't very descriptive. There are some sections that designate multiple sets, but the exercises are per-limb. I.e. does 6 sets of dead cleans mean 6 sets per arm or six overall (3 sets per arm). Also, some exercises are listed in sections right after one another, and I'm unsure if these are to be done in supersets or just consecutively. I guess the charts could benefit from a little better description.

Other than that, this is a solid book that will totally destroy you. I'm ten days in and loving every second of it. If you're not looking to work hard, find another book. This is like an extreme P90X but without all the wasted time and overhead. Very well done.

I really like the concept of this book. That is why i bought it. The good thing about the book is that it goes into full detail about every single exercise. The exercises take up about 85 percent of this book. What I dont like is when it comes to doing the actual programs there is very little instruction on how to decode the format they have it written in. There are things I get confused about when going through the program. If you want a book with a wide variety of programs and tons of knowledge about high inensity training. Go for mandf's 101 high intensity workouts for fast results.

If you have already been doing any Gym Jones or Cross Fit style workouts then I don't see this book being much use to you. I bought this book in hopes of learning some new kettle bell exercises and routines. Overall, I would say this book is good for the beginner to intermediate level person that is still new to the body movement, "higher" intensity style workouts. If you know your way around the gym and have been using body movement and kettle bell exercises already then I would look for a book with more advanced workouts. I'll be VERY surprised to see many people get "Action - Movie Ripped in 30 Days" from this book!!!

Could of used better charts and pictures to explain some of the movements. Good information but only if you are aware of most of it before reading this material. Doesn't seem to have much focus but wondering around instead of a linear fashion. It is ok but requires more reading and going back and forth to understand then should be necessary for a book that is 128 pages long.

If you are looking at this book then you are trying to decide to either purchase or use the various workout routines found on the internet. Spartacus, Spartan - all seem to be driving towards the same goal but either timing or reps totals.

This book does not waste your time with tons of page fillers. It quickly provides you the basic information you need to get motivated and rolling. This is followed by two programs each having three levels. CHoose the program and level based upon your current level of ability.

The remainder of the book shows you the "how to perform" the exercises.

I've been using for about a week now and even at level one the workouts are intense. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This book is not just a workout. It is a complete health program.
Dave Randolph has a comprehensive view of fitness.

The nutrition section has changed my way of thinking, as well as my diet.

This is a personalized program for all levels, beginner to experienced athlete.

Dave stresses the importance of rest and cycling your training, in addition to
warm-ups and cool-downs. These have become essential parts of my fitness program.

Dave has been my instructor for over seven years, and the results are amazing.
I have arthritis, which limits some of my abilities, yet at 50 years old, I am in the best physical condition of my life.

I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is unique in many ways. For example, you'll discover how to tone your abs with windmills and planks. How many fitness books will do that? I've not seen too many. Why does this appeal to me? Basically because crunches and, especially situps, have proven to cause injury over time. Moreover, I "know" these exercises work. I went from 35% body fat to 21% in a year.

You'll also learn how to strengthen your back and butt with kettlebell swings and pull-ups. Now, pull-ups are hard. But kettlebell swings, when done as described in the book, are fun and really work. But the author gives the reader a chance to determine his/her current fitness level and then shows variations and supplemental exercises. In other words, you're not going to jump right in and do exercises that will hurt you or that don't fit your current level of fitness. I especially like the static hold chin over bar. This is a tremendous eccentric exercise that helps to lower your weight set point quickly.

You'll also learn about the right sort of rest and how often to rest and how to cycle your workouts. Workouts are provided.

Highly recommended.
