Harry Wong presents an interesting book on "Dynamic Strength" exercises -- or for others, "moving isometrics". While well written, there are some confusing bits in there that may take a little interpretation, but otherwise, I like his program for two reasons: 1) relatively simple, yet sweat-producing workouts, and 2) no equipment (besides two chairs, and a short stick or dowel rod) needed. As the cover suggests, this book is directed at martial artists, so you will find it geared to developing power in that regard; more definition rather than raw muscle. Besides some confusing instructions for a *few* exercises (maybe I just misread?), this is a great book, filled with illustration. There are plenty of exercises in here to keep you fit, and I would reccomend it.
This book is a great deal considering it's price. The author shows and describes every exercise in detail and I had no problem following right along from cover to cover. The main advantage of this system is that virtually no equipment is required to produce results. Many of the exercises can be performed in "odd" places such as at school, the office, etc. The system is a strength building system (not cardio) so in many ways it is similar to weight lifting without the stress. It is the ideal low impact system for those that want to develop additional strength.
I highly recommend this book. It really *does* make you a lot stronger and faster. Make sure you put as much effort into the techniques as you can for the best, and fastest results. The explanations of the techniques are probably the best I have seen in any 'How To' book. On each technique there is an overall description, the count (timing), martial arts benifits, step by step description, and photographs for each step. What more can you ask for? , what a bargain! Buy this book!
The best program that I know of to build muscles - not for showing off, but getting a healthy body. The principle used is isodynamic stretching, which looks (and feels) a bit like very intensive Tai Chi. Some few exercises are described a bit unclearly, so even despite the many photos you sometimes need to guess how to perform them. But all in all a very recommendable book. A gimmick are the photos of the author demonstrating the use of chosen techniques in martial arts (Kung Fu self-defense against an attacker).
Just five stars?!!!?? This is one great book!! Kung Fu San Soo Master Harry Wong, shows you how to get the results you want. Using a blend of flowing isometrics this book teaches you how to continuously improve your strength. I would recommened it for everyone.
