I had high hopes for this book, and the ideas seemed worthwhile... unfortunately, as I tried to build a routine, I started to have problems understanding the "complexes" (guess its too complex...).
the author shows using different equipment such as barbell, dumbbells and kettlebells (which is good but also added to the confusion as they have different exercises that are done...

the author should have shown a basic program for a beginner all the way through, then start adding to it to make it more interesting, more intense, showing alternatives for these routines using alternative equipment.

as it stands now, the book give some ideas but leaves you having to design the program yourself which takes a nontrivial amount of thought to get a good workout...

other books that I thought were better:
golds gym book of strength training (out of print) but it goes into circuit weight training using a 110 lb barbell set...

joyce vedrals "fat burning" or "top shape" books that show superset training (I actually adapt these workouts using the ideas in the cardio book to up the cardio intensity of the workout...)

Readers of Coach Dos's (I use the shortened name here because everybody else does and I want to be cool too) earlier book "Men's Health Power Training" won't need much convincing Dos has another winner here. But not just previous fans...everybody interested in improving the effectiveness of their workouts should take a look at the concepts presented in this book. Coach Dos takes the pioneering work of Romanian weight-lifting coach Istvan Javorek on "complexes" etc. (i.e., stacking exercises back-to-back, usually compound multi-muscle or whole-body moves which produce the largest metabolic afterburn), and shows you how to construct workouts that tax both the anaerobic and aerobic pathways at the same time. Performing workouts using these concepts allows one to complete a tremendous amount of work in the shortest possible time. For purposes of body fat transformations, this methodology is simpy unbeatable. No wonder you're seeing this "metabolic strength training" everywhere these days- from Hollywood trainers, to TV shows (i.e., Biggest Loser, etc.) down to your local fitness gyms. It's the current cutting-edge of fitness, simply because it is a highly effective way to train.

Personally, I first started experimenting with strength circuits, stacking exercises back-to-back, after reading an article some time ago on "Meltdown Training" by Don Alessi on the T-Nation website (T-Nation is a great source for strength training wisdom and workouts anyway...everybody should have this site bookmarked or be stupid). Iron heads will no doubt remember Meltdown Training and programs like it fondly (Alessi gave several versions), for its brutal demands (brutal if you weren't used to this type of training, which many of us weren't) and for the results it produced. However, the program wasn't meant to be continued past a month or so and many of us moved back to more conventional workouts. Nonetheless, here we are with some of the same "metabolic" principles of strength circuit training, refined and expanded, tweaking with variables such as increased work within a given set of time, plyometric fast-twitch additions, adding the big Olympic lifts, etc. etc. Folks should always be searching for new ways to do things and do them better, and hence seeing these "metabolic conditioning" concepts extended and and refined gives me (and anyone else) something novel in a search for more effective ways to train...not to mention, adding some (needed) variety to conventional weight workouts AND to one's cardio work.

Not only complexes, but other cool tools for torching body fat are presented here, such as "density" training. Coach Charles Staley certainly wasn't the first guy to teach a "density" protocol, but his Escalating Density Training (EDT) was probably responsible for bringing the density concept back onto center stage. Staley's EDT usually pairs a couple compound exercises alternated for a given period of time, with the idea of constantly attempting to increase the total amount of work done within that period (i.e., increasing the "density"). It's another winner in creating a large metabolic disturbance, and therefore adds an effective arsenal in one's bag of tricks to maximize effectiveness of workouts. Coach Dos's way to do density sessions is to stack 5 exercises from different categories of movement (read the book), start the clock for 10-15-20 minute sessions, and see how many circuits you can complete in the given time period. This kind of setup is guaranteed to tax even the fittest trainee to fatigue, which translates into a huge amount of post-exercise metabolic disturbance (what elite fitness-trainer Alwyn Cosgrove terms "afterburn")...if your chest isn't heaving and your entire body isn't exhausted at the end of these sessions, you're simply not doing it properly. As Coach Dos says in the book, nobody said it would be easy... :-). But what a way to burn fat in the shorest amount of time!

Speaking of Alwyn Cosgrove, he says something intriguing in his forward to the book: "What science hasn't proven yet is that a strength training - interval training hybrid outperforms both strength and interval training when practiced independently." True enough, I doubt anyone can find any clinical studies done on a "metabolic strength training" protocol in the current literature. Its popularity is still a relatively recent phenomenon, at least outside of athletics and certain fitness trainers, and I don't think many in the research lab crowd have caught on yet... And let's be honest here, elite fitness trainers are usually light-years ahead of the researchers, who -judging by the often corny exercise protocols one typically finds in the exercise physiology literature - may not do much working out themselves. But Cosgrove's assertion certainly makes logical sense to me- the problem with, say, orthodox weight training is a lack of high cardiovascular effect (especially with longer rest periods working with maximal loads); and the problem with orthodox high-intensity cardio (i.e., HIIT "sprint"-type exertion) is that while this protocol has been found to be tremendously effective, it is still limited in some ways depending on the piece of equipment used...sprints on a track, treadmills, exercise bikes, ellipticals, etc. tend to involve the lower body much more than the upper body. Ideally, one would want to target the entire body on an equal basis, yes? Another weakness of orthodox HIIT is that, while it does directly hit the fast-twitch fibers (mainly in the legs), you're simply not getting the same effect as with resistance training on various muscle groups, which has a contraction and eccentric lengthening component that is impossible to reproduce solely by fast repetitive motions like sprints. Think about this. And sprint-type training doesn't produce nearly the same amount of (desirable) microscopic muscle tissue damage-and-repair that resistance exercise directly produces, which is responsible for re-building lean muscle tissue. So, to sum up, there are limitations on both modalities (weights or cardio). So it makes sense, at least from the standpoint of getting optimal results in the shortest amount of time, to perform some protocols along this line which involve the entire body, producing results which simultaneously delivers both whole-body resistance training AND the cardio effects of conventional HIIT intervals.

About the only problem I have with the book is much of the content is devoted to generic full-page photos of each exercise, including Coach Dos's warm-up routine. While I understand the need to give pics of the exercises in the workouts (especially for inexperienced lifters), at least the book could have been arranged so the pics took much less space. What this does is make the actual meat of the book too small. However, Coach Dos does give plenty of workout ideas for anyone to get going, and many folks reading this stuff probably already are fairly experienced and will have no trouble constructing their own workouts.
Four stars here, one away from perfection because of the book's rather sloppy organization. But a great fitness book...take these concepts and run with 'em!

Coach Dos knows of what he speaks. This book does not provide a super secret, magic bullet, for fat loss and strength building, sadly. It does outline a series of simple and extremely effective, exercise protocols that at least, will reignite your interest in going to the gym, and at best, increase strength and burn off some of that belly.
Unlike so many exercise gurus, the author has actually read the research, he quotes liberally from the scientific literature and credits others when appropriate. So the principles he expounds are grounded in solid science as well as his vast experience.
The layout of the book is not great, it assumes previous knowledge and leaves the reader to construct personal programs from the large menu of techniques and combinations described. I would have preferred a more simple and direct guide to doing 'this' on 'that' day etc. However, all the information is there and reading key chapters a couple of times gets you up and running. If you adopt some of the complexes, you will spend less time in the gym and be completely wiped out after the session. Both of which are good things, for me at least.
In my gym there is a cadre of personal trainers, they advertise '21st century techniques' and charge $90.00 a session. The things I see them do are all similar to Coach Do's teachings, basically, inventive versions of high intensity intervals. If you have a level of self discipline and some basic knowledge of safe lifting techniques, then this book is a great deal, buy it, use it and save the cost of a trainer.
Others have mentioned the typos, these reflect very poorly on the publisher rather than the author. How Rodale press can let these things pass is beyond me.
Overall, a truly new and innovative guide to optimizing your time in the gym, you will be motivated, informed and strengthened, definitely worth the money, despite the crappy job done by the publisher.
