My after reading review (December 24, 2020):- In all sports, strength training is an essential part. Mixed Martial Arts is no exception. Different sports have their own specific strength training program. Even strength training for athletes is totally different from typical bodybuilding workouts. The “Delavier's Mixed Martial Arts Anatomy” is designed only for Mixed Martial Artists to increase their strength to perform better in the ring.

I picked up this book because I am involved in MMA. I am passionate about the world's toughest sport MMA and I consider it as my extra curricular activity. I have been practicing MMA for a while. 

This book is especially designed to do strength training only helpful for MMA athletes to increase their sport specific strength. The Book is full of more than 120 exercises. There are thousands of different workouts out there but not all are helpful for MMA fighters. So practicing all types of exercises is a waste of time. Do only those exercises that are useful for MMA only and spend more time practicing techniques to become a superior fighter. And this book is perfect from this point of view. It’s a must have book for every MMA fighter. 

This book covers strength training exercises to improve following seven sections - 
  1. Neck, Trapezius and Jaw
  2. Abdominal Wall
  3. Punches and Elbow Strikes
  4. Kicks and Knee Strikes
  5. Grabs, Pulls and Strikes
  6. Chokes and Countermoves
  7. Lifts and Throws
