Franklin Lakes, NJ (PRWEB) April 16, 2010
Martin Rooney’s latest book, Ultimate Warrior Workouts: Fitness Secrets of the Martial Arts, will be released on May 4, 2010. Rooney, the top physical trainer in Mixed Martial Arts and COO of Parisi Speed Schools, spent three years working on the book, dividing his time between trekking to 11 different countries to investigate, train and compete in the 8 martial arts MMA sports, and travelling back home to train teams in the United States including the New York Jets.
In addition to fighting techniques and training regimens, Ultimate Warrior Workouts features a nutrition plan configured by a top sports nutritionist and a 6 month workout program based on exercises found in the book.
To produce the 384 page, full-color book of over 1,000 photos, Martin journeyed to the top fight destinations in the countries where the martial arts in MMA originated, including Japan, Holland, England, Russia, Brazil and Thailand. On every trip, Martin was accompanied by a professional photographer, translators, and in some instances, body guards.
Rooney had the luxury to train alongside many of the top martial artists on the planet today. “In Brazil, I was sharing the mats with current UFC champion Georges St. Pierre. In Thailand, I trained in the same ring with Yodsanklai Fairtex who is arguably the top muay thai fighter on the planet. In Russia I was pounded by a former Soviet Sambo champion and I got tossed around back in the States by UFC standout Frankie Edgar. It’s all documented in Ultimate Warrior Workouts. We wanted to educate readers about the fitness methods of the arts and the actual history and rules of the arts as well.”
Barnes and Noble and Parisi Speed Schools invite you to talk with Martin Rooney about his experiences on May 4, 2010 at Barnes and Noble, Paramus, New Jersey. Reserve copies of Ultimate Warrior Workouts: Fitness Secrets of the Martial Arts are available.
