Ross is a decent trainer who gives good advice but when it comes down to it he is very basic and offers nothing that isnt already known. Save your cash

Their decent workouts but nothing that I havent seen or heard of before. He does have some good techiniques but they are very basic.

i got ultimate training for the ultimate warrior and I think it's awesome. There's not exactly basic stuff in there, I had never heard of half the stuff before. I think it's a good use of money if you plan to use it and implement it in your training. I've definitely seen some improvements in my strength and conditioning.

I have "Punching with power", and "The boxer's guide to performance enhancement". I think they're pretty good. I found it to be pretty basic, but judging from some of the threads on training on this forum, a lot of the stuff would be new to a lot of people here.
I would suggest a few other books like "Essentials of strength training and conditioning" by Baechle & Earle, and "Periodization training for sports" by Tudor Bompa, if you really want to know more about training theory.

Eh...

I would argue that although he does teach some of the fundamentals, I would not say it's like, "basic". Many of the people in this forum coudn't handle most of the challenges in those books. It's good for beginners and advanced boxers - Just my 2cens though.

He teaches nothing that you wont learn from actually having a trainer, I have better uses for my money personally.

I've dabbled with some of the stuff in there. I haven't done the exact program though. I mostly bought it out of curiosity, because it's one of the only products of it's kind out there. I wanted to see how other people would do it. My personal opinion is that you need an INDIVIDUALIZED program, therefore Punching for power should only be used as a general guideline, and a source of inspiration (if you need inspiration, that is). :)

That is rather scientific in wording and methods, and I think that's more for advanced knowledge in fitness. His book is a part of advanced human kinetics training course, that lets you know it's not for beginners, plus all of the scientific jargon is only tolerable if you really love fitness as I do. Truthfully I don't think anything will be simple reading material because it's all bout the body's functions and reactions to the stress of training. All I can say is be patient of just hire somebody.....LIKE ME!!!

Since Never Gymless and Infinite Intensity have been coming up quite a bit here lately, I came across this old thread about Ross and his books. The ones discussed in this thread are out of print. I have The Boxers Guide To Performance Enhancement, but not Punching For Power (I think that was an e-book only) or Ultimate Training For The Ultimate Warrior (which I think I remember as being an early version of Never Gymless).

He does, Like he's gods gift to the sport. He's just that type.

I think the books are a pretty good resource tool for a fighter, Im not sure about the punching w/power book it may be more basic than the others. I like the drills in infinite intensity, Never gymless was kinda basic, a lot of sports will use the same drills and theories. Ross has a great program, and has put together a lot of information from various works on training, You could learn a lot from his training books. I don't know much about any of his work on boxing as far as skills and form.

A good point, I think at some point he makes reference to that very fact. It's always helpfull to gain as much knowledge as possible, from as many venues as you can. But a book will never compare to a well educated trainer who can as Punch states INDIVIDUALIZE your training. These books contain no secret reciepe for success. Reading them and following there drills probably wont win fights for you.
