I've been  studying Shaolin Do since late 1989 and started training with kettlebells in 2002. I am one of the first 100 people to ever be certified as an RKC under Pavel Tsatsouline and I was in the 2nd ever (Beta Cadre) training under Scott Sonnon and his CST system.

I'm currently certified with Pavel as an RKC II, with Sonnon as a CST Instructor, in the IKFF as a CKT, and with Kettlebell Athletics and the American Kettlebell Club. I think I have more kb certs than anyone else! Oh and I'm also a level I CrossFit instructor.

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 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.

Really, this is a book on cross-training. i suppose if you followed the plan outlined you would get ripped in 30 days. However, you need to be aware that would work if you are already in basically good shape. You have to approach a book or plan like this and say "Could I do this now?" If your workout, with minor tweaking could allow you to get in better shape, then this book will give you ideas for those tweeks.

Why do I give it four stars then? Because it is true to its word. If you followed the author's plan, you could get ripped that fast. However, I use it as reference book. I look to it when I want to try something new or target another exercise. Lets face it, doing the same exercises every day would be boring, and this is a great reference book for new ideas.

Physical fitness has always been an important part of my life. I have searched and incorporated numerous fitness programs in my own personal workouts. I have practiced various armed forces programs such as the Army special forces and the U.S. Navy SEAL fitness workout programs. I found the exercise routines in this book to be just as intense and challenging as most of the other warrior workout programs I have practiced. This program is the same one that got the actors who played in the movie 300 into great physical shape.

This excellent book is broken down into four parts. The first part explains the Spartan warrior workout program. The second part gives an overview of the actual programs. Third third part is the longest and shows the numerous exercises in this Spartan workout routine. Body weight exercises, as well as equipment (Weights, Dumbells, Kettle bells, and Rubber stretching tools) exercises are demonstrated. There is enough variety to keep you motivated. The final part is the appendix and covers general physical preparedness, warm-ups, and cool-downs.

In conclusion, if you desire to get into fantastic physical shape this is a book you will want to own.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Martial Art Myths)

This is a very well-constructed book that presents a wide variety of body weight and kettle bell techniques, but it is also exceptional from the standpoint of basic movement and safety. It has a very nice section on stretching. I regularly use many of these exercises with clients in group training sessions, and the author has represented them well with a nice attention to safety and kinesiological detail. His choice and description of the exercises are both easy to understand and represent a solid, safe progression. I found a few new techniques/approaches I could add to my classes, and was nicely reminded about some safety issues in ones I already use. I would like to have seen the additional approaches in the appendix (tire flipping, sleds, sledgehammers, etc.) worked into the primary schedule, but perhaps he will do that in a future book. This is a really nice book to introduce one to functional exercise. Will it get you in Spartan shape in thirty days? I guess that depends on the individual and how bad they want it. As a great teacher once said, "If you pay the price, you cannot be denied." All the basic information is certainly here. I am currently a group fitness trainer, and I have a degree in health education/cardiovascular fitness.
