Workouts from Boxing's Greatest Champs: Get in Shape with Muhammad Ali, Fernando Vargas, Roy Jones Jr., and Other Legends
Fed by media fascination with super heavyweights like George Foreman, the perception of boxers as oversized guys with oversized muscles is simply wrong. For every weight class, strength must be carefully balanced with the ideal physique. In truth, boxer training produces a body perfectly balanced for strength, shape, speed, and stamina.
The author traveled the world talking to top boxers about how they train for peak performance. Their workouts will help reshape the reader's body, and the short bios and quotes from legendary favorites will inspire readers to take their workout to the next level.
This one-of-a-kind approach to the world of boxing offers readers proven tips on balancing their own physique. Want to build more strength? Follow the workout of heavyweights like Ali. Need to slim down but don't want to lose muscle? Try the program of middleweight Fernando Vargas. Want to go all out for the ultimate physical fitness? Then try to keep up with the training of pound-for-pound legend Roy Jones Jr.
Book Review - Workouts from Boxing's Greatest Champs

Here is a boxing book that needs to be a part of your collection. Even if you are not a die-hard boxing fan, I'm sure you have an awareness of how physically fit these athletes have to be in order to compete at the championship level. Gary Todd has traveled around the world and gained real insight (straight from the champion's mouths) on how they prepared themselves. This book even tells how the Great Muhammad Ali trained, and what he ate during his training camps, etc.
I found this book to be very informative and an overall "EASY" read. For a person on the go, this is one of those books that has the look and feel of a magazine vs. a book. Once I picked it up and started reading it, I didn't stop until I finished the book.

this book is the best book on boxing i have read. i was so excited when i got the book, and i couldnt put it down. the author travelled to meet and train with some of the biggest names of the sport of boxing, and document what they did in the gym. you can tell that the author has walked the walk and talked the talk. the photos are fantastic and the book also gives the reader, a typical day in the life of the champion, while he was training for their big fights. this unique fly on the wall look at boxings world champions is the best i have seen. the real deal.
Great for the coffee table.

I thought that this book was going to be a little more in depth about the workouts that the Champs did in this book. Instead it gave a very brief discussion of what they did. I didn't pay much for this book so i am not too disappointed. Now i just sits on my coffee table for my guests to have a quick read.
