Combat Abs by Matt Furey
This guy is controversial, but that must be because he's bold and effective. He was a national wrestling champion. Also, he was the first American to ever win a championship in any world kung fu competition held in China. Read the results of Combat Conditioning. I bought my copy at his website. I'm glad I did because the new edition has tips that I couldn't have done without, and comes with a valuable companion DVD.

The Chest Expander for Abounding Health (1930's) by Alfred Danks
Cable training, also known as strand pulling or chest expanders, have been used for thousands of years. The ancients pulled on their bows, as in 'bows and arrows'. The old time strong men of the early 1900's relied on it. It's interesting to note that many of the leaders in the strength training world are leading us back to the training philosophies from nearly 100 years ago and later -- the days when it mattered how strong you actually were instead of how strong you just looked.
My interest is in rehab and strengthening the stabilizer muscles of the shoulder. If you have any shoulder issues, this is often a simple, effective solution.

Is Life a Random Walk?
by Harold Klemp
I'd much rather experience something than just read about it. The spiritual exercises of Eckankar have unleashed dreams, soul travel, light, and sound experiences for me. I'm really grateful for all the help I've gotten from Harold Klemp. If you know that you are Soul, an infinite spiritual being, then this lifetime is a precious chance for spiritual realization.
