Spartan Warrior Workout by Dave Randolph is an intensively complete book. It takes the basic premise of the "300" workout, and expands it into a complete, balanced fitness system.
For those of you who have been in a cave for the last several years, the movie, "The 300" is about the Spartans. The actors in order to portray these supreme warriors were required to train with Mark Twight of Gym Jones. This workout, also called the 300, tested the actors and stuntmen to their limits. In this valuable training manual author, Dave Randolph, successfully organizes massive amounts of material on technique, equipment, nutrition, warm ups, flexibility, mobility, and template design, into a readable, usable, format.
Dave uses the foundational exercises and develops each component into a variety of movements to accommodate individuals of varying fitness and functional levels. There is enough material here for the raw beginner or a member of an elite special response team. The organization is superb and the photographs are clear. Dave practices what he preaches and appears as one of the models in his own book. Dave can be contact at the Spartan Warrior Workout Club
Robb Wolf's "The Paleo Solution" is a refreshing source of information in a world where too many people take themselves too seriously. Robb's humor is carefully aligned with research and his testimonial or anecdotes are presented with examples of blood work and composition change.
This book succeeds since it includes exercise as a necessary component of the weight loss formula. It also includes recipes and practical examples of how to drink Tequila! The balanced format to me, makes the book very palatable and a nice addition to anyone's library. I highly suggest you go to the source and visit Robb at his website ROBB WOLF
