Strength is another aspect of fitness that is important to the keen martial artist. After outlining muscle types, their structure and function within the body, Tony Gummerson describes ways to train for specific kinds of strength. He shows how to work out systems of sets and repetitions, and includes advice on safe procedures and progressive resistance exercises. He also describes how to improvize with inexpensive equipment, such as ropes and chairs, and how to use a partner's bodyweight instead of complicated gymnasium apparatus to achieve excellent results. There are examples of schedules and practices to suit the needs of any student at elementary, intermediate or advanced level.
