Stephan Berwick's True Strength™ regimen draws on ancient Chinese warrior secrets to present a sophisticated and highly effective program for developing formidable internal power—without the help of any devices, medicines, or forced breathing.
Most Western-based strength training programs concentrate on building "external" muscular strength. But that is only one link in the true strength chain—which according to Chinese internal martial arts should also include strengthening your fascia/tendons/ligaments, your joints, your internal organs, your internal energy system and even your skin.
Is your strength package complete?
Without strengthening all the links in your strength-chain simultaneously, you remain as vulnerable as the weakest links in that chain. We've all see relatively small internal martial arts masters throw apparently way stronger men around like they were rag dolls. Some of this power comes from martial skill, but much, much more it's coming from the uncanny strength-package the master has developed from a truly all-around approach to strength cultivation.
Many of these internal masters demonstrate this astonishing strength well into their sixties, seventies—even eighties. How do they do it?
Stephan Berwick likes to call this quality "Tangible, True Strength". The kind of strength you really need to survive not only a worst-case scenario in combat or years of full-contact sport, but the rigors and stresses of daily life. Tangible strength is the power to survive. Tangible, true strength helps you ward off illness and injury and allows you to rebound from adversity with supreme resilience.
The kind of strength cultivation where you only seem to get stronger as you get older—rather starting to fall apart at the seams as early as your late thirties or early forties…
Ancient warriors needed to handle blows, wield heavy weapons, and survive on meager rations, while maintaining their victor's edge. Their strength was of the hands, feet, torso, neck, and legs— a total body power designed to meet any challenge thrown at it.
Gain a warrior's formidable toughness with this unique program
For the first time on DVD, Stephan Berwick reveals his regimen for healthy body toughening derived from his unique expertise in secret Chinese martial art body toughening methods. Combining hard and soft forms of conditioning inspired from his intimate knowledge of ancient military-origin Chinese martial arts, Berwick's True Strength Yang™ program offers quick results—conditioning your body to withstand blows, falls, and twists, in an easy to digest, highly intense regimen of warrior conditioning, reminiscent of the best classical martial body practices.
DVD 1: True Strength Yang presents essential body-hitting exercises, in a unique training approach that stimulates and toughens the skin, muscles, and joints using only relaxed, flexible limb movement. Discover how to first toughen your upper body, moving to the mid-section, then the lower, followed by total body, structural toughening executed with a partner.
Body toughening is a key part of building True Strength. The ability to withstand and recover from blows and other related contact-injuries is crucial for any combat style. While many martial disciplines use a variety of sometimes debilitating exercises to toughen the body, True Strength Yang is inspired by the fluid, relaxed body conditioning and power striking concepts of Tong Bei (Back Striking) and Fanzi (Catch & Hold) boxing to produce extremely quick results for any body type.
After mastering the instructional component, take advantage of three follow-along True Strength Yang Workouts to rapidly "weaponize", strengthen and energize your body in just minutes a day.
I got True Strength Yang on March 2009 and have done the regimen ever since. As a hardcore skeptic I guarantee that True Strength Yang delivers you everything it promises! I do Sanshou, Kali and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu I and can tell you from such a person's viewpoint how punches and kicks don't hurt nearly as much as they used to and the pain goes away VERY fast- be it uppercuts or kicks to the midsection. Defending against leg kicks is less painful due to toughening of my thigh muscles and shins. When someone traps my forearm with his shin while grappling on the mat it barely stings and when I'm going to get armbarred inside my opponent's guard it won't cause too much pain on my thigh as he presses on it with his foot. You can get ALL of this and much, much more without having to wreck your precious body with debilitating, nerve-killing exercises like banana tree-kicking and grappling on gravel. It's kind of funny how my training partners might ask me "are you okay?" after I've had a critical hit and I can just shrug it off. As I carried on with the regimen, I noticed how the slaps started to sound more and more like thuds. I thought I was imagining things, but it really did sound more like a thud! Also, the stinging feeling has dulled out a lot and won't linger as long. With the "Base" training on the second DVD I can now shift my weigth a lot more fluidly on the mat. The whole regimen is extremely easy to do and won't take much time, I've got amazing results with about 10 minutes few times a week. In my opinion, the material presented on this DVD is laid out very well and the sequences are easy to follow. Stephan Berwick has made follow-along workouts, too. You just have to be consistent and take your time. True Strength Yang is something extremely unique and little known, even so much that I would compare it to the impact Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu made on people in the first UFC. This review has been written by a martial artist, but I'm sure you can find something for yourself from the regimen if you are not someone like me- go ahead and ask the author, Stephan Berwick for details. Order True Strength Yang NOW. It will be far more than good for you. If you disagree with me, you are wrong. While you are at it, persuade other people to try it out, too!
As a chiropractor and acupuncturist, I want to help patients (and myself) workout effectively and safely, in limited time and space. This innovative DVD is ideal.Based on time-honored martial arts practices, True Strength Yang promotes power, speed and even flexibility. The tempo and percussive forces are adjustable for each participant, so anyone can reap the benefits of this training technique.In light of its bone-strengthening aspects, I'm recommending this workout particularly to the "older" segments of my patient base. Everyone acknowledges the importance of weight-bearing exercise as we age; here's a simple, no-frills way to achieve that goal.Fun, fast (if you want it to be), and easy to learn, I think Stephan Berwick's approach is an all-around winner.
I have been practicing the "soft", non-martial varieties of chi kung (qigong) for about 15 years now. This is as different as a slap to the face in the morning. He does not call it chi kung, but this is definitely a form of hard chi kung. It is simple, straight forward and invigorating. Like other forms of Chinese martial arts, benefits are best realized through consistent, focused daily practice and increasing capacity but never getting to the point of exhaustion. Daily slapping should stimulate the cell growth and adaptation and blood circulation at the point of contact. One of my early observations was that longstanding arthritic pains in my fingers disappeared within a couple of days. I have no idea what that means.
The content of the DVD is really good. I learned a lot. Being fairly new to the martial arts and physical conditioning,Iwouldn't put much stock in any company other than dragondoor for a supplement to my ongoing learning experience. Keep up the great work.
In any endeavor, excellence is rooted in "the basics". Stephan Berwick lays a solid foundation when he takes the time to explore fundamental movements. This is the focus of the second DVD in the set.And while True Strength Yang is built on time-honored principles, the power of this program quickly surpasses the basics. It is a dynamic regimen great for enhancing strength, stamina, and resilience - regardless of your background. You have to experience True Strength Yang for yourself to realize how much it has to offer. Prepare to be surprised at almost immediate improvement in rooting, power, coordination, and speed.
This is a well crafted and explained easy to follow guide to strengthening and toughening your body. An excellent choice for the Martial Artist or anyone just wanting to get stronger.
I've been doing this program every morning for 2 weeks now. It perfectly complements the body-weight only program I'm practicing. Combine this program with Naked Warrior and naked TGUs from TGU From The Ground Up and you have a comprehensive training schedule. Strength, ease of movement and increased energy, the three pillars of a solid body foundation.
This is not only a good set for conditioning one's body against blows it may also be found a bounty in one's learning power generation and developing balance. Following some of the methods on the DVDs one's awareness of one's own body can improve.
I have been training for over 25 years. I strength train,do martial arts,yoga,and cardio training. This video is the best internal training that I have come across. It is a great total body warm up. It really gets you going before an early morning workout and keeps your internal power buzzing all day. I can't wait for the True Strength Yin series to come out.
The Tong Bei striking action is unique and unlike anything I've done before. My arms, shoulders and back have greater range of motion and are more flexible. My legs are also stronger from the stepping and weight shifting.I do some of these exercises in place of traditional warm ups for sports and have found it puts me in better condition to play.I recommended this video as a stand alone workout and as supplemental training.
