Log in or Sign up. Where did your likes go? I had ordered a copy of his Never Gymless about a month or so ago, and was totally impressed. But damn I'm glad I did get a copy.
Simply speaking, Infinite Intensity is written by a fighter, for any fighter. Every drill, exercise, set and rep has the combat athlete in mind. Not that it wouldn't benefit anyone, but you can tell just by reading that Ross is thinking about the ring, preparing any athlete that would even consider fighting to have the top notch conditioning.
This is one area that I was extremely happy with. While Never Gymless did cover conditioning, it never covered it to the extent that Infinite Intensity did. And if you think you've "seen it all", or you have the best trainer in the world, I can tell you right now you are dead wrong. I swear, there's workout samples in there that make me nauseated just looking at them. I think Pat Miletich and Billy Rush would learn a thing or two.
In fact, they probably read both II and NG under their covers with a flashlight at night. If I had to criticize, it would be on recovery and nutritonnutrition he covered in NG, and recovery is just an area of mine I'm highly interested in. These are topics that are so vast and broad that even the experts can write single books. Ross didn't touch either in Infinite Intensity, which wasn't a bad idea.
He also doesn't cover flexibility, which is usually an issue with kickboxing and any leg-dominant martial arts. This topic has been covered completely by other authors, so once again, Ross has wisely left this out.
Now, while I may be harping on this book, there one thing that really backs it all up. Ross himself. If you haven't seen his videos, hit his website and check them out. That's actually how I found out about Rossa buddy sent me a video of "some dude skipping like a madman and throwing shit around". He said "Check this out, it has some good ideas". Understatement of the year. This is a guy that practices what he preaches. For those that are unaware, Ross Enamait is a boxer and trainer.
He has two websites, Ross Boxing and Ross Training. Both are fairly closely interconnected, with articles and videos linking back and forth. The video section is highly recommended. By far thee best book I have ever read on strength and conditioning for combat athletes, hands down. MikeMartial , Aug 30, Nice review. Big fan of Ross' how can you NOT be? They inspire me to do badass things.
The best thing with Ross besides that his books are the -best- on conditioning for combat sports! Basic Ross philosophy: Its not the implement that is important, it is the hard assed work you put down and doing it in an inteligent and researched way that is important. MikeMartial , Aug 31, Joined: Oct 26, Messages: 1, Likes Received: 0. Great review, Mike, I agree about the nutrition section, too. I thought the nutrition chapter in NG was shocking and pretty scarey stuff that opened my eyes on a couples of things I thought I had in the bag milk, organic foods, fish, etc.
Brando , Aug 31, Is there a big difference between that book and the Underground guide to Warrior fitness? Or to ask it otherwise, if you got the underground guide is the infinite intesity still worth buying? MisterSambo , Sep 13, On an entirely new level. Ross dont even sell his old books any longer for this whery reason. MikeMartial , Sep 13, Joined: Jan 7, Messages: 4, Likes Received: 0.
I like the rossboxing site, so I am tempted to pick up Inf Int. My expectations of the book preclude me from purchasing it, and it'd be the type of book I'd have to read or skim before purchasing.
I simply can't think of anything the book can provide that would simply blow my mind or I'd have to incorporate into my training.
I would definitely recommend his writing to the clueless or new trainees based on the quality of information he provides for free on his boxing website, as well as his active participation in answering his user's questions.
Art Vandelay , Sep 13, Thanks for the review! Rudy Richter , Sep 13, Good review, I've been looking for one. Looks like it's ordering time. Centaur , Sep 22, Simple answer: Infinite Intensity. Best Answer: Both. MikeMartial , Sep 22, Ross and his products are great. No BS just hard conditioning. He answers questions, takes advice and doesnt pull any punches.
Ross is the fucking man. On the days that i'm not in my gym fight training I usually follow one of his routines to fill the gap and they literally beat the crap out of me. But since doing them i've become a lot stronger and a lot more explosive. If you are a non-believe check out his videos especially the new hardcore workout video, he's insane. MBKickboxer , Sep 28, I received this book today, and my previous concerns were unfounded. It is the best training book I've ever read, and the first I didn't consider a waste of money.
Art Vandelay , Sep 28, Ross posted here before. I've e-mailed him a few times and he's always quick to respond. Class act all the way.

It was a challenge at times. Actually a lot of the time. I really like the philosophy behind Ross's methods and the movements and workouts he espouses. His conditioning methods are geared towards combat athletes and this is a good thing for someone training for low tech combat proficiency. The best conditioning methods for low tech combat are those that are practised in the combat.
Infinite Intensity will change the way athletes approach training. This program integrates a lifetime of in the trenches experience, coupled with years of extensive research. There is nothing new under the sun. This page manual will outline a complete system, from A to Z, covering all aspects of physical training. The philosophy behind this program is simple.
