Absolutely! The workouts in the Warrior Fitness program are completely scalable based on your level of fitness. Each exercise is explained step-by-step.
2. Is nutrition covered in the book?
Nutrition is an important aspect of a complete, healthy lifestyle, but is not discussed in the Warrior Fitness book. My own personal ideas about nutrition can be summed up fairly simply though. Eat lean proteins, lots of fruit and vegetables, and some complex carbohydrates. Eliminate or reduce white sugar, white rice, and white flour from your diet. Drink plenty of clean water and green tea.
No. I have not been taught any Amatsu medicine within the context of my Bujinkan training.
4. Is this program just Junan Taiso (basic stretching exercises used as warm-ups for martial arts practice)?
No. The Warrior Fitness book provides a comprehensive program consisting of joint mobility, flexibility, strength, conditioning, breath work, and recovery. Much more than simply junan taiso exercises.
5. Do I have to workout every day?
You do not need to do a full workout, but I highly recommend doing some movement everyday! Joint mobility work, combined with breathing exercises can take as little as 15 to 20 minutes in the morning. It’s a great way to start your day!
6. How much time do the Warrior Fitness strength and conditioning workouts require?
The workouts contained in the Warrior Fitness book are designed to be fast and effective. You can achieve a quality workout in 15 minutes, if you are short on time. Longer workouts can also be programmed, depending on how much time is available.
7. Do I need a gym membership for this program to work?
Definitely not! Warrior Fitness workouts are designed to be done anywhere with little to no equipment necessary.
8. How do I fit in working out and the skill training for my martial art?
Excellent question. This is where scheduling and time management skills come in handy. Time will not simply appear out of thin air. You must make time. However, the most important advice I can give on this topic is that if you do not have time for both skill work (martial art training) and conditioning, skill work must take the priority! You are training to be a martial artist after all.
9. Is this book applicable only for those training in the martial arts?
No. This book is certainly not just for people in the martial arts. The exercises and ideas contained within are applicable to anyone of any range of fitness and ability. Pick up a copy today and see for yourself!
