Editorial Reviews


"Ken Best's 'Wild Strength' is a blast of sensible fresh air in a field sometimes lacking palaeo-common sense.  His solid prescriptions for exorcising the ills of post-civilisation life would meet the hearty approval of any palaeo-hominin and should certainly prepare you for a fit and healthy future, if not a matchup with a woolly rhino." Dr Peter McAllister, Lecturer in Journalism and Public Relations, School of Humanities, Griffith University, and author of 'Manthropology'.

From the Back Cover

Wild Strength is a no-nonsense resistance training plan based on the physical activities of ancient and modern hunter gatherers.
"Ken Best's writing is technical but easy to understand.  He has the ability to make concepts in the areas of strength and conditioning, resistance training and physiology applicable to the everyday trainee and advanced gym goer alike.  The Wild Strength plan gives Ken the space he needs to expand on his ideas, drawing sometimes counter-intuitive conclusions that are designed to help our health and fitness goals, and connects the dots between ancient hunter-gatherer behaviour and the fitness activities we engage in today." Daniel Hedger, Editor Australian Ironman Magazine.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Wild Strength (The Wild Athlete Plan)" is a very well thought out, very well presented plan for a multimode approach to strength training. Ken Best is a long time strength, muscle, body builder from Australia with many contributions to Australian Ironman and MILO magazine. He has the experience and knowledge to write this book. And he did it well. My only complaint is the total lack of pictures, but the descriptions are clear, simple, and complete being easily followed. Mr. Best believes in simplicity of approach. And he achieves that here.

Mr. Best has worked out through enough cycles and fads to speak with wisdom and authority in the fitness field, moving beyond complicated programs, fancy machines and all the various fads and movements that have come and gone over the last 50 years.

Here Mr. Best lays out 5 principles (bipedalism, gravity, whole body movements, posture and basics first. He then lays out 5 modes (free weights, odd, heavy objects, bodyweight, partner resistance, manual labor). He then clearly describes the differences in body development that each mode will have on the the user. He lays out his top five exercises for each mode, and describes very well how to implement them into a program. Mr. Best recommends using all of these modes in full body workouts, emphasizing different modes on different days of the week. He does not lay out an exact day to day program, but outlines well and clearly how to use the exercises to develop an outstanding, total body approach to total body fitness. Mr.
