Like Healing Chi Meditation [review here], Total Chi-Fitness by Sifu William Lee is an easy to follow and robust book that discusses the benefits of employing Chi in your daily fitness routine
While Healing Chi Mediation is slightly more complex, Total Chi Fitness is much more simple in its explanations and application. In fact, its fitness routines are so simple that even an elderly individual could partake in these rather easily.
Lee begins with a short explanation of how the knowledge of Bodhidarma, which lead to many practices such as Tai, Chi, Chi Kung, Acupuncture and more, came to be. Thence he continues supplying the reader with additional information that explains what Chi is, how it works, general characteristics and much of the exercises and more.
Besides some other added information to help the reader understand additional concepts, Lee suffuses information on how to prepare, ranging from mindset, which is extremely vital and often overlooked, to the importance of breathing, which cannot be overlooked, and more.
In any case, in Total Chi Fitnes, the author Lee provides the reader a veritable fitness routine crash course that gives the reader 18 different exercises, the last two of which are an energy burst workout, composed of four different exercise types, and the last one which has an energy raising technique with two separate positions which help harness Chi if employed properly.
This particular book reads rather quickly, and is easy to comprehend and employ. In fact, my close friend’s grandmother who happens to be have significant health issues and is obese, has no problems doing the exercises provided within this book.
For me personally, am employing the exercises in this book every third day or so, alternating with yoga, regular weight lifting and cardio and it’s become part of my daily routine.
All in all, Total Chi-Fitness helps individuals net great benefits, although it requires a little more time to do the exercises than 5-Minute Chi Boost by the same author. If 5-Minute Chi Boost is seen as an simple introduction, and yet a worthy energy boosting entry-level exercise book, then Total Chi-Fitness is a slightly more robust, yet not overly-complex book which just builds on similar concepts and rounds them out in salient fashion.
Just thought mentioning each in relation to each other might help the reader narrow down which way they might go. Either way, both books are high recommended and complement each other rather well.
