Not complete....Not necessarily Martial Arts based...DO NOT BUY!!!!!,
This review is from: Complete Conditioning for Martial Arts (Complete Conditioning for Sports) (Paperback)
Bought this book with the idea that maybe it contain methods, ideas, or techniques to improve martial ability, but it turned out to be a basic cardio, resistance training primer. It has a lot of holes in its presentation and really needs some intense updating to discuss how to design, evaluate and adapt a workout program. The majority of this book is a how-to guide on doing exercises. Whoopy!!!! You can go to any internet site and get that info.
This book needs more discussion on how to actually do and design workouts; not learn exercise forms. Besides, the only useful part of the book is that is does a very brief evaluation of the kids of training a martial artist would/should do for their style, but again too broad and no useful take away info.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!
