Author: Cat Zingano
Stars: 5 stars
I will be honest I am not much for watching MMA fighting but I am about finding a new workout. This is a lot of strength training and focuses mainly on the upper body and full body movements. I didn't find the program intimidating.
I think anyone who has never thought of this type of workout would find beneficial or can be added to change up anyone normal fitness routine. The pictures in the book are of real MMA fights which helps to give women real body positive images.
Your body will hurt but the more you do it the less pain you feel. The diet tips might not be forever but they are helpful for those wanting to build more muscles.
