I’m a big fan of the Convict Conditioning books and I’ve been training based on their system for sufficient time to realize how to maximize my results. Convict Conditioning book’s purpose is to increase maximal strength utilizing 6 progressive calisthenics exercises broken into 10 steps of increasing difficulty. The training system starts with the easiest possible step (exercises like wall pushups) and progressively moves further to the hardest step, like the almighty one arm pullup.
Everybody knows that the training methods used in the Convict Conditioning books are meant to work the nervous system for strength gains rather than the muscular system for aesthetics. But from my experience I realized something else, and the truth is that the books teach us how to attain a brutally strong body as well as how to gain solid muscles – like the Greek Statues illustrate. The fact is that many of you have so little results with either, but the good part is that you have in your hands one of the most powerful tools to start to forge your body into something like the books want you to become. You only need to understand how to utilize them properly. And fear not! I will help you understand how to do it.
