Ok, I will be the first to admit, that the title says it all: "Warrior Cardio." Maybe that should have been a clue that this is going to go way beyond what most people are looking for in a workout book. I am a middle-aged guy, getting back in shape, and - from the title - was hoping to find some new ways to do cardio that were not mind-numbing like a treadmill or elliptical trainer. I got the book the other day, and while I normally wait to review items until I have used them for a time, I wanted to get this up so others don't make the mistake I did. With return fees, it isn't worth me sending the book back - and I will be able to use a couple exercises in here in my daily routine. I kknow that a lot of times, these workout book reviews get jammed with groupies or friends of the author trying to hype the book - but I am neither. I am the average joe, sitting in my office, avoiding that painfully long project report by shopping on Amazon. So, here goes:

I gave the books 4 stars because there are a lot of positives in it:
- I found some good nutritional information, but the overall diet is a bit more than I am looking for.
- The book is beautifully photographed, the exercises pretty well staged out - as well as you can get in a book - and it seems to have a good flow to it.
- all of the models are very buff and good looking, and will inspire you to push the workout a little harder.

My one complaint - I am not complaining because I am average fitness guy would would need two simpler workout programs to build to this one - is that some of the workouts are REALLY unrealistic in normal people's homes or regular gyms. My gym does not have truck tires for me to push all over.

I've been following Martin Rooney and Training For Warriors for a while now, but I am always a little nervous when it comes time to see a fitness book. This book did not disappoint.

As an MMA fighter, a personal trainer, and a fitness nut I was very interested in seeing what this book was all about, so, like any reasonable person - I preordered it. Okay, I'll admit that this was the first book I have ever preordered... I was a little nervous. This book is page after page of different exercises, circuits, tips, methodologies, inspirations and pure knowledge. I am amazed at the simplicity of the breakdown of the book. He breaks it down into different sections based on the type of circuit, from there he breaks every circuit up into different body types. Each type of circuit has an instructional section followed by different interval and repetition suggestions.

On top of all the fitness instructions, Rooney includes a nutrition section. Now everyone might not agree but as a personal trainer I love that he did not just include a "Here's what to eat for 4 weeks" guide. Rooney goes through and breaks down nutrition in a very easy to understand way. Not only does it include tips for what to avoid, what to eat, and such for loosing weight, but also for gaining weight and mass (something usually overlooked in general fitness books).

I suppose if I was going to have a complaint it would be that some of the pages seem to be missing of few steps in the instructional photos. I have been doing this for a while, so I can fill in the spaces, but I could see how a beginner could get confused. Let me say though, that with almost 400 pages of FULL COLOR photos, this is hardly a negative.

The book contained a lot of great information. I especially enjoyed the workouts that were presented by the author. I've had great workouts utilizing the information and workout plans that are found in the book. My biggest complaint is that in the schedule, many of the exercises that the author tells you to perform do not make sense because they are not "titled" to match the wording or verbiage used throughout the book. For example, a Monday workout will tell to perform "all mini plyo hops and movement drills" which is easy to understand because those exercises maintain the same title/verbiage in the book. The problem comes when executing, say a Tuesday workout, where the book tells you to perform "all muscle activation exercises" and you're left to try and figure out what exercises these are because they are not referred to as such anywhere in the book! If each workout maintained specific verbiage it would be a 5-Star rating. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to utilize the information completely because I'm left to try and figure out exactly what exercises the author is recommending on specific days.

P.385 "this chapter contains a 12 week workout featuring the exercise is contained in this book."
However
P.386 Week 1 Wednesday "all stationary warm up drills(pp. 43-48 in Training g for Warriors)"
which is the first of several references to an entirely different book entitled "training for warriors". In order to complete the 12 week coursework in this book you have to access the previous book. Therefore this book is not complete as it claims. This should make you dubious about this book as well as any other training book. You would have to pre read and cross reference the curriculum prior to purchasing to insure the book gives you what it claims. Very disappointing.
