Meet the men who "Mixed" the martial arts a decade before the UFC! <div><br />What do an NFL star, a United States Secret Service Agent, Sylvester Stallone's bodyguard, and Muhammad Ali's sparring partner all have in common? They were all characters cast in America's original "anything goes" reality fighting drama, an "open call" that gave birth to a new sport--MMA. <div><br />Long before the Octagon was in vogue or Royce Gracie made his pay-per-view debut; decades before the UFC became a household brand and while the likes of Dana White were still in elementary school; two martial artists, Bill Viola and Frank Caliguri, set out to prove once and for all who the world's greatest fighter was by creating a radical new "sport" in 1979. </div><div><br />Tough Guys reveals the clandestine plot to subvert the "first" mixed martial arts revolution in American history, one poised to challenge boxing as the king of combat sports. Confounded by a freak accident (death in the ring) and widespread corruption, a massive struggle ensued over money, power, and respect between boxing's gentry and an upstart MMA company from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CV (Caliguri and Viola) Productions ignited a bitter turf war with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission that sparked a spectacular David and Goliath battle for leverage. The legendary story, buried by rhetoric for years, casts a wide net reeling in everyone from politicians to mobsters, all with ulterior motives; all with eyes on a billion dollar blueprint. From boxing's "Holy Territory," the home of Rocky Balboa, to a bizarre connection with the Supreme Court that lead to the first legal precedent for MMA--ever, this is the ultimate inside look.<br /></div><div>Tough Guys is a testosterone-laced whirlwind tale of "what might have been" told by the trailblazers who fought for it. Relive the epic adventure of the "Tough Guys" later known as Super Fighters (the first mixed martial arts league, long before it was labeled MMA). Thirty years before the UFC gained a mainstream audience, KDKA-TV dubbed CV's new sport, "Organized, Legalized, Street fighting" while the Philadelphia Journal proclaimed, "No holds barred as Superfighters take over." Take a journey back in time to the "Iron City" and meet the fighters, the foes, and the visionaries who created the modern sport of MMA.<br /></div></div>

"Aujourd'hui, c'est lundi, c'est mon entraînement pour les pectoraux. Mardi, ce sera les épaules et mercredi, les jambes ensuite le dos puis les bras pour terminer la semaine". <br /><br />Vous reconnaissez-vous dans ce type de programme? Avez-vous toujours autant de résultats en entraînement? Prenez vous de la masse musculaire au rythme désiré? <br /><br />En réalité, ce type de programme d'entraînement plus traditionnel peut donner de bons résultats pendant un certain temps, mais inévitablement, vous atteindrez un plateau. Une fois ce plateau atteint, changer les exercices ou le nombre de répétitions ne vous aidera plus à progresser. Dans ce ebook, vous apprendrez les raisons qui occasionnent ce plateau et quels sont les variables que vous devez modifier dans votre entraînement pour continuer à progresser. À la fin de ce livre, vous serez en mesure de choisir vous-même la cédule d'entraînement la plus optimale pour vous. Vous aurez une meilleure compréhension des facteurs qui cause votre plateau. Ultimement, si vous mettez en application les conseils que vous apprendrez dans ce livre, je suis convaincu que vous allez continuer à progresser et prendre de la masse musculaire à un rythme beaucoup plus soutenu qu'auparavant.
