And this is supposed to do... what exactly? Build strength? Condition? It doesn't really seem hard enough for the short length, even at its hardest level.

I can't lie, I don't know about this keep. I had picked this up from a buddy of mine, but questioned it's quality as a "fit to fight" program. Just wanted some feedback from someone who really knows how to get ready for a match.

It seems like a good concept, but only really as a pre-fight conditioning program, and only if the exercises and whatnot were changed up a little bit to be a little more difficult and more balanced.

this is also in the book traing for warriors but seems like a much more hardcore version of this. This system modified to fit your needs does sound effective tho, esp if you match it the the round time + rest + number of rounds of the average fight or game or match or whatever your into

From what I can gather, its meant to replicate the conditions of a fight, whereas you may have short busts of intense activity, such as scrambles, sprawls and g & p (the sprint sections), followed by periods of active recovery, such as being in guard, jostling for position (the weights sections). It looks interesting and is generating a lot of hype. Im currently 4 weeks out from a fight so will give it a go and see how it works for me
