No More Nonsense

At this point, I have made it pretty clear that I have zero patience for lethargic, fat slobs who are looking for a miracle fitness solution.

Unless there is a medical reason for one's obesity, I find it difficult to sympathize for someone who continues to shove food in their mouth.

Real Warriors need real workouts. We do not need some fancy personal trainer telling us to squeeze our butts or tighten our abs. We are looking for a no nonsense approach to training. We are looking to prepare our bodies for any challenges that the Warrior lifestyle may present. We must condition our bodies into powerful, functional machines.

Notice that I chose the words powerful and functional. Power is the functional application of speed and strength. It is one of the key components to athletic performance. Regardless of your sport, you will require a powerful body to propel you to the top. Something is functional if it is used to contribute to the development or maintenance of a larger whole.

Without turning this into a science class, let's take a close look at this definition. Our training system must concentrate on functional movements that contribute to the development of a larger whole. The larger whole is your body. You must train your body in a functional manner if you seek functional results.

For example, curling a dumbbell will help strengthen your bicep but it will provide little, if any, functional benefits. You will rarely be forced to "curl" your way out of trouble. The bicep curl is an exercise that will make you look nice but it will do little to condition your body for the grueling challenges you will face in life or sport.

I have been involved in the sport of boxing for over ten years. My athletic career has always revolved around contact sports. Whether playing football, wrestling, or boxing, my objective is to seek and destroy my opponent. Unfortunately, many athletes involved in similar sports do not follow a functional training routine. These athletes are misled to believe that they can only achieve strength and power in the weight room.

Many football players boast about the weight they can bench press, without recognizing their lack of functional strength. With this book, I will teach you a new way to condition your body. You will learn to maximize your endurance, strength, and power with natural, functional exercises. These exercises will use your body as the primary form of resistance.

I am not here to say that you should avoid the weight room. Weight lifting certainly offers numerous benefits to the aspiring athlete. Rather, I am here to tell you that weight lifting is only one of many ways that you can condition your body for the rigors you will encounter in competition. Please note that I use the word "competition" to describe any encounter where you must overcome an obstacle that stands in your way. Perhaps you are a wrestler looking for more power and endurance or a football player who wants to maintain his explosiveness throughout the game. Or perhaps you do not participate in any athletic events. This does not give you a free pass to avoid physical obstacles. You must be conditioned to handle any hindrance that stands in your way.

As a Warrior you must train your entire body. Forget about the guys who bench press every day to build their chest for the beach. We all want to look good but not when it means sacrificing our ability to overcome and conquer the obstacles that lie ahead. Most iron pumping junkies cannot lift their own bodyweight over a chin-up bar more than 10 times.

As a young teen, I remember working out at one of the local gyms. One of the old school members of the gym approached me with a question. This man was ripped with muscles and loaded with stories from his days as a fighter. He was the first person to introduce me to the sport of boxing. At age 55, this man worked out with the energy and strength of a man half his age. He was known to run the streets at the crack of dawn. His gym workout consisted primarily of heavy bag work and floor exercises.

As he stood by my side, he asked me to look at the chin-up bars located in the corner of the gym. I glanced over and noticed a run down area which had been converted into a place to hang wet towels and dirty clothes. No one bothered to use the chin-up bars. He then asked me to look over at the fancy nautilus resistance machines. The gym was packed with this equipment. People often waited in line to use these machines.

The man then looked at me and asked why no one was using the chin-up bars.

Puzzled by the question, I had no answer. I was new to strength training, as most of my time was spent at the boxing gym. Recognizing my confusion, the man looked me in the eye and said that no one uses the chin-up bars because they are difficult. It is hard to pull your bodyweight over a chin-up bar!

Earlier, I mentioned that society was plagued by laziness. After analyzing this man's question and answer, I soon realized that a great percentage of "fitness enthusiasts" were also lazy. They were searching for the path of least resistance.

It is much easier to grab a pair of dumbbells and perform bicep curls or bent over rows than it is to pull your own bodyweight over a bar.

You can play with resistance machines until the sun comes up and you will not gain the functional strength derived from natural, bodyweight exercises.

To summarize, you can look nice at the beach by playing with toning tubes but there is a lot more to true physical fitness and conditioning. Our goal is to not only look great but also condition our bodies to seek and destroy all challengers.
