Hero Workouts breaks through the cross-fitness confusion and noise to help the reader understand how to reach elite levels of fitness without injury. Special operational forces train to complete missions, but for a civilian cross-fitness devotee, the workout is the mission. Special operational troops cannot afford to be injured because their workout is ill-contrived. Likewise, civilians do not wish to be sidelined from their pursuits.

This book contains hardcore functional exercises and workouts. I have excluded exercises which have little real-world applicable function or merit or are more apt to cause injury. This book is intended to provide instruction in maintaining combat readiness with minimal training injuries.

The first portion of this book is instructional. It provides the reader with principles for preventing injury and maintaining elite levels of fitness. It also introduces the reader to some very specific exercise instruction. This includes the cross-fitness exercises with the greatest training benefit while leaving out those exercises which have little applicable benefit or have a high risk-to-benefit ratio.

I write this just a day after visiting a military unit as a consultant. Of the twenty troops whom I interviewed, five had chronic injuries which occurred during a cross-fitness workout and adversely affected their day to-day activities. How ironic that these men, in an attempt to improve their combat readiness through exercise, are now less capable than if they had never attempted a cross-fitness program.

This book will take the very real and positive benefits of a diverse multi-modal fitness program and temper it with science that will maximize benefits while minimizing the risk of injury.
