5.0 out of 5 stars This tome is better than a personal trainer!, March 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Overcoming Gravity: A Systematic Approach to Gymnastics and Bodyweight Strength (Paperback)
I'm a martial artist and pro dancer in Italy i needed something to spice up my dancing moves and stay fit, i thought gymnastics will be perfect, i bought all the books on gymnastic i could find, and "overcoming gravity" is way better than the other: the "convict conditioning" approach is too weak: little progression and lots of hype this is a common denominator in this kind of books even "never gymless" or "building the gymnastic body" or "the naked warrior" all this books seem to reveal part of a secret path to super strenght but they miss to describe the DETAILS the leave so many things vague to have the chance for another book...Overcoming Gravity is not smart cause he talks about everything you need to build a routine that suit your need leaving no place for other book, the author could have followed the trend to inform a little gaining a lot but he didn't.
This book is like a personal trainer and I would have payed gladly 5 times his price to have it.. and the bigger surprise is that at the site[...]you can talk directly with the author,i posted my routine there and after 3 hours he gave me lots of pointer on my first routine and he answered me on facebook 10 minutes ago answering on line at a lot of questions, trust me this Steven Low guy is a rare exception: he really want you to improve....I hope this book will became the "Bibble" of bodyweight training, cause the content is comprehensive and leave just a few questions to the reader that can easily ask the author in his site.
The only problem that the author will have in the future will be that it will be very difficult to make a book better than this one.there are a couple of typos but no one is perfect(sorry for my english i know is terrible) I never do reviews but i had to do this one cause the author really deserve it.
