Format: Paperback
The author of the book, Martin Rooney, helped me to prepare for the 2001 NFL combine in which I posted some of the top results at the offensive lineman position. This book outlines many of the principles that he teaches to all of the professional athletes he works with on a daily basis. I have been after him for years to put a book like this together which is comprehensive for the professional and easily read by the novice as well. I recommend this book for anyone that is serious about understanding the fundamentals upon which all training systems are based.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Ryan Walsh on August 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book with tons of information on how to create your own training program.

The principles in the book are 100% and it is from these principles that you can design your own regime based on your own strengths/weaknesses and demands of your sport.

The book covers nutrition, workout length, periodisation, variety, economy, amongst other things but one of the real assets of the book is the plethora of inspiring quotes and anecdotes that will you to take and use these principles to create a program to put yourself a class above the rest. Train smart, buy this book, train to win!

As a sidenote, I purchased this book along with Training for Warriors: the Team Renzo Gracie Workout.

Both books are top notch, whether you train martial arts or not, the Warriors book is a great way to see the principles in action and the workouts entailed can be tailored to any sport or training regime. As a combo, these book are unbeatable value.

I trained with Martin during my NFL career and he is the reason that I was able to advance my career as far as I did. I now use the same training techniques that I learned from Martin with the athletes that I train, and their results have been awesome. Martin is truly a leader in this field and any athlete that wants to achieve his or her goals must have this book.

Format: Paperback
Train To Win is a great book and I recommend it to any athlete. I read the book in one sitting. It is enjoyable to read, and it seems like you are constantly learning lessons. It touches on so many different aspects, all of which are crucial to your training.

I am playing professionally in France and I still pull the book out for guidance at times. The book is useful to me at 24, but it would also be useful for a 14 year old athlete or a 55 year old one as well.

Sometimes training can seem like a big task. where do i begin? what is most important for me? how do I organize? what is my biggest priority? Rooneys 11 principles really breaks it down for you, and makes things clearer. Another great book and oppurtunity to Learn from Martin Rooney.

I wasnt sure what to expect with this book, but it was a great decision to get it. Being a high school coach and parent, this book has opened my eyes to the truth behind training. Just the interesting stories alone are worth your time.
