bodyweight exercisee

3 questions:
1. Has anybody heard of the book "Convict Conditioning"?
2. Is it any good?
3. Is it something that i could work in addition to gslp or is it meant to be a stand alone program?

I ask because it covers some bodyweight stuff i would like to learn but don't want to hinder my strength training progress.

Re: bodyweight exercisee

I've heard of it - but never read it.

have you also seen the huge full threads (with PDF downloads) in the Workout of the Day Forum regarding body weight workouts/resources?

Re: bodyweight exercisee

i'm not looking for metcons so much. the book sounds like it is more along the lines of skill work on pistols, handstand pushups, one arm pushups, and one arm pullups. and from the reviews, the progressions he uses sound pretty solid. just wondered if that would be too much to add on top of a strength program or if it would be work i could either do some other time during the day or right after i lift as accesory work.

Re: bodyweight exercisee

"Never Gymless" by Ross Enamait is always a good read.

But, Convict Conditioning seems popular. Never read it, don't know anyone with it, but I've heard its name mentioned many times on internet forums.

Re: bodyweight exercisee

Hi,

I've been doing YAYOG (http://www.marklauren.com/). This is a program developed by Mark Laurent - trainer to special ops. Only bodyweight exercises.

I've gotten great results from it! Been using it since end December.

Check it out!
