still able to learn new things from this book and having all the exercise progressions in one place so detailed able to learn new things from this book and having all the exercise progressions in one place so detailed a Imagine That! gold mine Even if you are of a weightsuy this book has a lot of value in it for the sections on joint health prehabrehab and stretching Though I d imagine most of it would be of value to anyone who is into physical trainingValue 1010Information 1010 Just received the book Very useful book but the printing uality is not Elena's Conquest good Sentences at the end of the pages are missing or barely visible like the printer s toner was low It is a veryood reference book for bodyweight exercises as it will talk you through how to perform different exercises as well as display diagrams for the different progressionsThe book provides a Sister of My Heart good overview on the fundamentals of strength and talks about how you should train depending on youroals It is mainly focused on bodyweight strength as the title describes but it does talk about some misconceptions about lifting in King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies general which I thought was useful if looking at this book from a neutral standpoint I ve been bodyweight training for a couple of years now all self taughtI decided that this year I need to create an actual plan to progress to the elite level This book has overwhelmingly answered any uestions I have had about programming and strength buildingI especially appreciate the description of shoulder placement on each move This is incredibly helpfulIt is worth way than 50 So if you are considering buy it just do its so worth it Most of this thick tome is really about designing workout routines and progressions which I am sure would be ofreat value to a personal trainer There is sadly not that much detail about the different exercises themselves howeverThe exercise diagrams are nicely done and they stand out clearly than some of the typical black and white photos some books use but of them would be helpful and much explanation as to setting up and conducting the exercises would be h The best calisthenic book there is by far very detailed and you would never need another due to the size and detail Every exercise is touched upon with reat progressions My only moan is the flimsy paper cover which is the same as a piece of paper This means that it will very easily become dog eared and will rip with only minimal use Commonly referred to by readers as an exercise
