  1. I’ve been waiting for this book to arrive and it did not disappoint! The 1st half of the book is the theory, principles, and foundation, which is really great content and reveals the pillars of this system for the high performer. The 2nd half of the book is the movement library with an exhaustive description of key performance exercises for the athlete, including innovative stretching and mobility work, sprint and agility work, strength/power work, and much more. This is a No BS book with a ton of great information and key concepts for those high performers that want to get to the next level or those who desire to become a high performer. This is the 1st book I’ve purchased from these authors and have to say this is outstanding work. I read a lot in this topic and this is a great book for every athlete and serious fitness enthusiast. I know I’ll continue to use this as a valuable resource in my own training library.

  2. This book is excelent and has lots of useful information, as long as you have the correct expectation. This book is not for beginners nor for those folks who just want to train 2-3 times per week. There are better books out there for this type of audience, including some books by the authors like “Core Performance Essentials” (for begginers and people wanting to work out only 30min 3x per week) or “Core Performance” (for people who want to go to the level above).
    Many ideas from this book will be familiar to those who have read a book from the “Core Performance” series, but you will also find new material. The program consists on 7 units: “Pillar Prep”, “Mov Prep”, “Plyometrics”, “Movement Skills”, “Medicine Ball”, “Relative Power”, and “Energy Systems Development (ESD)”.
    The workout lasts 15 weeks and there is some room to choose your weekly schedule which consists in 5-6 training days. The days are classified as “Power” (at least 3 such days per week), “Movement skill” (at least one weekly day), “Regeneration” (at least one weekly day), “Complementary” (optional activities like yoga, pilates, etc), and “Off days” (at least 1 per week).
    I have not yet tried the workout, but it seems quite good, but I would not try it unless you already have a good fitness base. Some of the exercises (such as those in “Movement skills”) seem to specifically address athletes (including “tactical athletes” like military personnel, firefighters, etc.).
    A challenge with this workout is the variety of equipment it requires. For example it requires a wall where you can throw medecine balls. I’m not sure this is easy to find, at least without disturbing neighbors and I guess most gyms won’t allow it. Also you have power days where you have to lift weights and in the end you have to do some ESD by, for example, doing 50 yard sprints a certain number of times. This is not something to do on the treadmill, so you need to find a gym which is conveniently located near a track field or near some place where you can perform your ESD. Also you are required to use elastic bands with weights in some lifts. I’m not sure if gyms allow this for “security reasons”.
    The book has some typos (at least the kindle version). For example there are 7 types of “Regeneration sessions”: “General Regeneration”, “Self-massage”, “Flexibility”, “Upper back/shoulder pain”, “Low back pain”, “Hip pain”, and “Knee Pain”. But the description of the “Self-massage” and “Hip Pain” sessions are missing, while the description of the “Low back pain” session appears repeated 3 times.

  3. This book unearths the athlete in everyone and shows you exactly how to get the most out of training and life. Reaching your goals takes more than 60 minutes in the gym a few days a week. To truly reach your potential you need to master your Mindset, Nutrition, Movement, and Recovery. This book takes an accessible approach to total self-development and provides simple strategies that will allow for sustainable success. This isn’t another training book…this is a book about creating a sustainable lifestyle that will accelerate you towards all of your goals.

    Open this book and find out what is possible in you…

  4. I don’t usually buy or read books in the exercise and fitness category, because most just tell you to eat less, move more and stay away from vices. This book is really different, even if you don’t subscribe to the movement portion of the material – you will learn more about how to live your life in a way that improves your performance. I always wondered how some people just seem to be able to give their work and life everything they have every day. Everyone has moments in life, key meetings, presentations, negotiations, etc. where you know you need to be your best. This book addresses how to become a high performer, and how preparation, nutrition, movement and sleep impact your ability to sustain performance. The tactics can help you have more energy, mental clarity and really be in that high performance zone more often. I’ve already used several tactics identified in the book, and they are simple changes that can make a huge difference in performance both professionally and personally.

  5. I found this book a very good tool for every athlete with special applications for Masters level competitors.

    It reinforces that training excellence is not random and brings a fine awareness to rest and nutrition.

    The aging athlete benefits by having a roadmap to do everything right.

    Verstegen is a true pro and Williams writes with a flair to make the applications for the science of training and the art of living.

    The rest /recovery section is the best reminder that exercise benefits require rest to rebuild and restore the body. There are wonderful sections on the practical tools to use for fascia and trigger point therapy.

    Food for fuel provides the most current information on whole foods as well as supplements. The power performance page should be on every athletes grocery cart list.

    And finally there are enough good training exercises listed with the appropriate coaching keys to make professional trainers use this as both a guide and resource.

  6. This is the sixth book in the Core Performance series that Mark Verstegen and Pete Williams have jointly written. I have had the opportunity to read all of the other books in this series and continue to use them as a resource on a regular basis. ” Every Day Is Game Day” takes the methodology that was introduced in the other Core Performance books and allows the reader to take his or her training to the next level. In all of Mark and Pete’s previous books I always felt like you were actually listening to Mark’s voice instructing you throughout the book. “Every Day is Game Day” takes that to another level. The book is divided into four different sections entitled: Prepare For It, Fuel For It, Train For It, and Rest For It. Mark and Pete explain the importance of all of these segments. The book stresses that all four of these areas work together and that by including them in your training you will have the opportunity to live a healthy and active lifestyle. As with all of the Core Performance books, the methodology is easy to understand and follow. It not only lists exercises with descriptions but creates a system that you can use on a daily basis. I highly recommend this book!

  7. I purchased this book because I admire what Athletes Performance has done for athletes and specifically getting our wounded military men and women back to life and what that has meant for their families. The title Every Day is Game Day is more of an ethos for athletes whether they wear the name on the back of their jersey, camouflage with the flag, or even just a corporate polo with the company logo that you are willing to shed blood, sweat and tears for. This is as close as you are going to come to appreciating their philosophy without physically visiting and training or taking courses at one of the API/Exos facilities. I have read reviews of this book by others that claim this is for elite athletes and not for the weekend warrior that hits the gym. I believe quite the opposite is that all of us can take the principles from this book and be better in our performance whether we are a CEO the commands the attention of stakeholders in a boardroom or a physician that wants to be on top of their game in order to get the best possible outcome for their patient. I think this book is a long time coming and I’m glad to have it in my “tool box”.

  8. This guy has been there and done that. Us “average joe’s” think that the super athletes and super warriors can ignore the basics and operate at elite levels but they face the same realities that the rest of us do. I was pleasantly surprised by the “What is your IT” exercise at the beginning. I worked through this (it only takes 10 minutes) and found it very valuable. Eat Right, Exercise Correctly, Sleep and Hydrate. Very well documented. One of the best books on fitness I have read in several years.

  9. This book has some interesting training techniques, you can use them daily. if you are looking for power or strength, this book is for you.

  10. I have read other books by Mark and use the utilize coreperformance.com for my customizedworkout plan. This book explains the why’s behind the program. It’s a fantastic read and I highly recommend it!

    1. I love the brightness of the clip on light and the fact it can be deetcird where it is needed most. However, I bought the light to clip onto my kindle and it really doesn’t work well. I have a cover on the kindle so when I clip the light at the top of the page being read, it blocks the page. If I clip it onto the cover it doesn’t show up well when I try to read. Perhaps this could be covered in the description of the product before it is bought.

  18. This book has some interesting training techniques, you can use them daily. if you are looking for power or strength, this book is for you.
