Warrior Fitness Guide to Striking Power


Recently I had the pleasure to review an e-book titled: Warrior Fitness Guide to Striking Power by Jonathan Haas.  This book written by a martial practitioner for martial practitioner’s covers training such as: sledge hammer, medicine ball, resistance bands as well as bodyweight exercises and isometrics.  All in all this is an excellent read with some really informative information.  You can look at their website here:


Personally I am a firm believer in all of the above ways of exercising!  Make sure you check out his site and see if any products work for you!

    All good and I have nothing against any of it, and admittedly I have not read the book, but I have read a few on “hitting harder” and/or “faster” and I have always been left with the same thought….why not just train strikes by hitting stuff.

    Heavy bag, speed bag, Mook Jong, pole, trees, walls, whatever it takes

  2. Brian VanCise says:

    Hey Tim,

    Absolutely I agree in working out on the heavy bag, mook jong, pole, tree, etc. I think though that having variety is important as a motivational factor.

    Along the same lines, I’ve been reading the Complete Conditioning for Martial Arts by Sean Cochran. I’ve been reading a lot of different things lately about strength training, and this applies not just to martial practitioners, but to anyone that wants to strenghten or condition.

  4. Brian VanCise says:

    Strength and conditioning are essential for a martial practitioner. It gives you and edge if you ever need it!

  5. Jon sent me this book, as a gift. I love it and incorporate some of his ideas into my fitness training. 😀 I know it’s been a while since this was posted, but I thought I’d chime in.
