Without the problems of weight training The first section explains the mental aspects of dynamic strength The seco. First published under the title Dynamic Tension this is a program of dynamic or moving self resistance exercises designed to develop strength evenly and naturally free of weights or other euipment except two chairs and a short stick This is a pretty complete program focusing on all major body parts Although the Dynamic Strength exercises are geared specifically toward martial artists anyone can beneifit from these exercises The workout begins with a short series of warm up exercises followed by supplemental strengh exercsises and finally the Dynamic Tension exercises In addition Harry Wong offers advice on training and suggests 3 possible programs Beginning Intermediate and Advanced He also includes a general Introduction and some thoughts on mental preparation and breathingNOTE There seems to be some confusion regarding the phrase dynamic tension so I would like to stress that the exercises in this book inovlve movement by pitting one set of muscles against another through a natural range of motion In my experience these exercises are much beneficial than static exercises which involve pitting one group of muscles against another but without any actual movement

Comprehensive instructions with plenty of photos to show how to strengthen muscles gain power and improve physiue. 24 of 24 people found the following review helpful50 out of 5 stars Very informative book on a uniue training method March 19 2007By Shawn Kovacich Author of the Achieving Kicki The Greatest Little City in the World Being the author of several books on the martial arts and fighting I am always looking for books of exceptional uality to add to my library If I have a book in my library it s definitely worth owning One such book is Harry Wong s Dynamic Tension I have owned this book for over 20 years and have not only used the specific exercises contained within it but I have also adapted the techniues for several different exercises that I not only use but also teach in my classesHarry starts off his book by pointing out the benefits that can be obtained through using this method compared to the conventional method of weightlifting Some of the benefits described are as follows1 Increased physical strength2 Improvement in your balance3 Improvement in your flexibility4 Increased body awareness5 The ability to heighten all five or your senses through force of concentration6 No injuries from lifting weights improperlyThis is followed by a very in depth section on mental preparation and breathing Harry stresses that you must breathe correctly not only during the performance of every exercise but also during every moment of life Although it may seem like a funny or somewhat absurd statement we seem to lose our ability to breathe correctly as we get older This is a bad habit that can be unlearned and should be in order to enhance your every day lifeThe mental preparation section covers such things as 1 Define your goals2 Having a positive mental attitude no matter what you are doing3 No matter what you are doing have fun doing it4 Free your mind of negative thoughts5 Focus completely on your body and the exercise you are doing6 Have proper body posture during all exercises7 Concentrate on each individual body part for that particular exercise8 As hard as you focus during an exercise you must totally relax after it is done9 Breathe properly during each and every exerciseThe following section gives you some of the basic principles that should be followed when you are warming up Harry then gives you a brief overview of some of the basic warm up exercises that you should perform prior to executing any of the dynamic tension exercises featured in this bookNow here is the meat and potatoes of this entire book the dynamic tension exercises which covers 24 different exercises for everything from your neck chest upper body and arms to your legs Each exercise follows the same outline in providing you with the following information1 Description of the exercise2 Number of repetitions you should perform3 The count for each exercise4 The effects of each exercise5 Variations of the main exercise6 The martial arts benefits of each exerciseThis book then finishes up with a brief section on training Included in this section are 1 Exercise routines for beginner intermediate and advanced users2 How to set up a time and place to train3 How to do a self evaluationThis book offers another great alternative to the standard forms of exercising I have even modified these exercises and incorporated the principles behind them into my own training routine I now utilize this type of exercise while doing my forms practicing combinations whether it be hand andor foot combinations or as a compliment to my normal weight lifting routine I highly recommend that you buy and practice the exercises in this book If you do you will notice an improvement in your overall physical abilities I personally saw results after about 6 weeks of training
