Modern Art of High Intensity Training, The
A book on high intensity training should deliver an impact equal to the training itself. Lucky for you, this one does.
The Modern Art of High Intensity Training is sport and strength, movement and passion. It is a guide like no other. From the stunning artwork to the 127 workouts, it’s designed to be a difference maker. Whether you use this resource as a supplement to an existing training program, or replace a program that has become tired and stale, you’ll view and use this book time and time again.
See high intensity training in an entirely new light. You’ll find 40 exercises, each detailed and depicted with art, photos, and modifications; 127 workouts and circuits to mix things up; warm-up, safety, and injury prevention recommendations; and—if you’re up to the challenge—an original 15-week program.
The Modern Art of High Intensity Training has everything you need and want in a workout program. Change, variety, inspiration, motivation, challenge, and results—it’s rendered and written and delivered to you on every page. So now is the time. Make an impact.

Articles & LinksArtwork Sets New Training Book Apart
to my work as a trainer, this book very much helpful.
It is a very good book to start in unknown movements (weightlifting, ketlebell, BW). But it is not a book for those who seek to improve skills or correct technical defects. It is easy to read and understand.
