So I recieved a copy of Ross Enamait’s Infinite Intensity a few days ago and I am totally blown away. I had ordered a copy of his Never. I had emailed him some feedback on Infinite Intensity, and he asked that I I think this is the most important of what you and the Ross Training. Hi Folks, First post on this forum. Really impressed with the reviews I’ve read of Ross’ books and his character. I am about to take the plunge.

Ross has a background in boxing so the focus is getting yourself in shape for combat sports. If your active in boxing, mixed martial arts, Olympic or Greco-Roman style wrestling, kickboxing or any other combat sport Ross will help you take your conditioning to a whole new level. Whereas Infi I’ve boxed on and off since and been an athlete in one way or another my whole life but adding many of Ross Enamaits fitness ideas to my routine have helped me take my conditioning to a whole new level.
In his books he also goes in depth with interval training, circuit training, wind sprints, jumping rope, plyometrics, isometrics, sand bag training, there’s even stuff on exercise bands.
But whats really important is not just the individual exercises or routinesbut the ideas pertaining to getting yourself in condition, and how they relate to combat sports. I don’t care if your a world champion fighter or at an elite level of fitness, the workouts laid out in his books will kick your ass and take your conditioning to a new level.
I think the only thing I disagree with him on is he downplays, if not out and out excludes distance running opting for interval runs and wind sprints. Ali and Fraizer in their fights, incredibly conditioned fighters like Henry Armstrong or Ray Robinson, and Rocky Marciano who was probably the best conditioned heavyweight ever and he would sometimes run as much as 15 miles in a day while training for a fight.
So while I agree that sprints and intervals should be used, and yes there is such a thing as doing too much running, you can’t really argue with greats like those whose conditioning surpasses any boxers fighting right now that I can think of. He gives alternatives he’s big on organic food to the poisonous products while still being realistic and not fanatical. I highly recomend both Infinite Intensity and Never Gymless. If you want to get in shape to fight both are the best money you will ever spend.
Apr 01, Patrick rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: A very good guide to working out. Includes tips on just about every aspect important to an athlete.
Strength, conditioning, core and more. The training methods and exercises described in the book are focused on low-tech and high-effect so you don’t need access to a fully equipped gym to apply in real life what the book has to offer.
I truly recommend it! Sep 03, Justin rated it really liked it Shelves: Ross is quite strong he does one legged weighted squats!
He, however, is not brilliant and as such the book comes off as experiential not researched. Not that there is much wrong with that, but this book should probably be balanced with other books that understand kinetics,etc.
Infinite Intensity by Ross Enamait
My main worry is that some of the explosive movements could be enamalt if done wrong. I would feel more assured if the book didn’t have statements saying that dumbbells are the way to exercise because certain body bu Ross is quite strong he does one legged weighted squats!
I would feel more infinitf if the book didn’t have statements saying that dumbbells are the way to exercise because certain body builders only used dumbbells. This is an extremely flawed argument though its conclusion may be right and casts doubt on other statements.
Sep 21, Praetorian rated it it was amazing. I love this book. When I start overthinking things and picking apart the minutae of training techniques, Ross is like the trainer that brings me back to earth, slaps me enamair the side of the head, and reminds me of the basics. And what really matters. I’ve been boxing for about 15 years now. Infinite Intensity is my go-to conditioning book.
There’s a 50 day plan included, which I’ve used about 4 times now. Every time it’s come through for me, and spit me out the other side a well conditioned machine. Nowadays I use the various individual workouts from the book GPP, Warrior workouts, Track work and use them in conjunction with my weight training program tactical barbell.
I plan on running another 50 day II standalone in January gotta work off Xmas lol. Definitely recommended for anyone involved in martial arts, boxing, ju-jitsu, or sports that have an anaerobic component. Nov 06, Tom Roberts rated it it was amazing.

Jun 07, Sheepdoggy rated it it was amazing. I’m a police officer, and several years ago I was getting a little tubby due to falling into sedentary habits, combined with shift work and a poor diet. I finally decided to smarten up and get myself back on track.
I ran the 50 day program, and it delivered. I ended up losing around 10lbs, and felt like a million bucks after it was over. Sep 28, Raul rated it it was amazing. For those that want a practical approach with real world results, this book along with Tactical Barbell II are the standard for all around elite fitness in my opinion.
Just enough theory to provide understanding, and then its all hands-on training that will propel you to the next level. The training in this book is challenging, if you’re looking for a book that promises easy results, this ain’t it.
You have to put in the work. And it is totally worth it. I ran the 50 day program Phenomenal book. I ran the 50 day program in this book improved my vo2max dramatically, and lost close to 10lbs of fat.
Feb 13, Mark rated it it was amazing. Ross Enamait is fantastic. His writing is researched, supported, and positive.
He doesn’t make promises about miracle shortcuts, optimal results from minutes per week training programs, or any of the other garbage polluting the fitness industry. If all you got from this book was the day training program, you’d do well. If you took the time to learn how to use that program and swap out exercises from time to time, even better. If you made use of the entire book and took complete ownership of y Ross Enamait is fantastic.
If you made use of the entire book and took complete ownership of your physical training, I’m hard pressed to see how you could do better. Dec 12, Doc Octagon rated it it was amazing. I enjoy and benefit greatly from running the 50 day program in this book a couple times a year.
But, as Ross points out, maximum strength isn’t at the top of the priority list for combat athletes. Jan 31, November Foxtrot rated it it was amazing. Excellent book if you’re interested in results and really everyone should be.
