About the Author

Loren Landow has been an athletic performance specialist for more than 20 years. He has trained over 500 professionals from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), National Football League, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, and National Hockey League, as well as Olympic gold medalists and a world-record holder.

Landow was the strength and conditioning coach on season 16 of The Ultimate Fighter reality television show. He is widely recognized as an authority on speed and power development and presents nationally and internationally for renowned organizations in the sport performance and fitness industries. He is often hired as a consultant for many club and professional teams. Currently he is the owner/director of performance at Landow Performance in Denver, Colorado.

During his career, Landow has been fortunate to work with some of the best martial artists in the world, including UFC fighters Brendan Schaub, Neil Magny, Shane Carwin, Cat Zingano, and Strikeforce champion Nate Marquardt. He has coached some of the top practitioners of Brazilian jiujitsu, muay tai, taekwondo, karate, judo, and Russian sambo along with world-class boxers and wrestlers.

Landow’s philosophy is simple: Maximize human performance through efficiency. With a full arsenal of exercises and a leave-no-stone-unturned mentality, he aims for efficiency in training, which transfers to each athlete’s specific sport or individual playing position. He firmly believes that speed, power, strength, agility, flexibility (mobility and stability), balance, and conditioning are biomotor skills an athlete must develop for success.

Ultimate Conditioning for Martial Arts 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Excellent photos complement the exercise descriptions, both male & female athletes are shown. This book covers a wide range of material specifically suited to the martial arts, but is applicable to general physical conditioning. The importance of testing your current level of fitness is discussed along with nutrition and hydration information. Overall, a valuable reference to have on hand. I received this book free through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
