Nicht schlecht geschrieben und erklärt,aber manche Übungen sind zu Hause echt schwierig umzusetzen z.B: Traktorreifenübung oder auch die Nummer mit dem Vorschlaghammer usw. Etwas Schade...is aber so !!!

Daher nur 3Sterne

RANDY COUTURE XTREME TRAINING
The Fighter's Ultimate Fitness Manual
with Lance Freimuth and Erich Krauss
(Victory Belt)
© Marc Wickert October 23, 2010
[...]

This 320-page manual has been a long time coming, but well worth every minute of the wait. If you were to only have one piece of equipment in your gym, this book would have to be it.

What I really love about "Randy Couture Xtreme Training - the Fighter's Ultimate Fitness Manual" is that the book contains a lot of training advice and instruction that could have been passed down from the days of Randy Couture's great, great grandfather when fighters and wrestlers trained in old wooden sheds or rolled in the dirt in their backyards. Some of these moves could even be attributed to Cain and Abel's sparring days.

There's no ultra-modern equipment employed or any state-of-the-art wizardry - it's all "Natural", as you'd expect. And there are plenty of routines you can utilize when you're traveling where no gym is handy.

Another aspect of the manual I enjoy is the wide use of medicine balls in Randy's training: medicine ball slams for improving endurance and stamina as well as developing overall body conditioning; medicine ball jumping squats for explosive power and stamina; medicine ball punches to improve punching power; plyometric push-ups with medicine ball which also boosts stability and coordination; sit-ups and Russian twists with medicine ball for the abs; medicine ball cage walks; use of medicine ball for focus shield...

Then there are the sledgehammer strikes on tractor tires, tractor tire flips, rope climbs, flex bands, and much, much more. This book is chockers! But it's not just a selection of calisthenics thrown together. Randy systematically works on eight categories: strength, speed, power, size, endurance, coordination, balance and agility.

And as Randy states in "Randy Couture Xtreme Training - the Fighter's Ultimate Fitness Manual", "It is important to mention that this book is designed sequentially. The beginning of each chapter explains specific details necessary for understanding the pages that follow, and each section builds upon the previous section. As you read the book, you will discover not only what exercises I utilize in my fight preparation, but also why I utilize each individual exercise at various stages in my training regime."

The manual concludes with day-by-day and week-by-week programs that specify the number of sets and reps for each exercise. Randy Couture is with you every step of the way.

Von evol - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Amazing book. Very detailed, informative, and well laid out. If I ever wondered why Randy Couture was still able to be a world class athlete at the age of 47, this book answers that question. To anyone who's interested in mixed martial arts, or just to get into better shape for any sport, this book is worth every penny.

There's a reason there's no preview... 14. März 2011
Von Alex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book was just OK. I don't know who wrote the rest of these reviews but I would bet most are either hired reviewers or Couture fight campers/fanboys. It gets three stars for having basically good advice and a fair number of different exercises, including fundamental lifts as well as more exotic bosu/ball/band/plyobox work. The reviewers who talk up the "fight camp" section are clearly full of it--unless you have a sparring partner willing to go at it with you and a working knowledge of basic grappling and standing work, you're not going to be able to do this on your own. The lateral movement section is also pretty lacking, consisting of almost exclusively rowing variations. The "sport specific" training section is mildly interesting, and there are likely a handful of exercises throughout the book that you have never seen before, but you could ultimately figure it all out on your own. That's why there's no preview--if you could preview the sections you'd realize he just shows you a basic movement and then how to do that movement using variations with a bosu/ball/band. One clever thing he shows is strapping a resistance band to a bench press so that you keep the press difficult throughout the range of motion (whereas normally a bench press is hardest only at the beginning). A few interesting partner exercises but again nothing revolutionary. The photos are glossy but they're also lazy. Lots of eyes closed shots suggesting they did the whole book in a few short photoshoots and had no retakes. I think this book is worth $10... maybe.

Perfect! 19. Januar 2011
Von John Lavin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
THE best book for MMA conditioning ever written. Period. I am an MMA athlete and coach, and I have tried a lot of different conditioning routines with both myself and my fighters, but this book trumps them all.

Though it would be physically impossible to have one book showing EVER productive training exercise, this book comes close. At double the price this book would be a bargain. At $35 (or $20 used) this book is the greatest steal in the history of productive training. Get one NOW!!!

Best S & C book on the market! 15. Oktober 2010
Von Curious Goerge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having purchased training for warriors, xtreme training is hands down the best book on the market for strength and conditioning as it relates to fight specific training. Even if you're not an MMA fighter, this is an excellent book to have in your library. It covers everything: olympic and power lifts, core exercises, conditioning workouts, countless drills--many of which I've never seen--as well as legit programming. Everybody is always clamoring about how Randy stays in such good shape in this book explains how. The book is organized in a manner that is easy to understand, the techniques are beautifully described, and the programs are excellent. This is a bible of exercises and an all around masterful work. I'm extremely happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone interested in getting fit for fighting.
