In his sequel, Convict Conditioning 2, Coach Wade takes us even deeper into the subtle nuances of training with the ultimate resistance tool: our bodies. With an amazing understanding of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, Coach Wade explains very simply how to work the smaller but just as important areas of the body such as the hands and forearms, neck and calves and obliques in serious functional ways.
His minimalist approach to exercise belies the complexity of his system and the deep insight into exactly how the body works and the best way to get from A to Z in the shortest time possible. Paul teaches us how to strengthen our bodies with the simplest of movements while at the same time balancing our structures in the same way: simple exercises that work the whole body.
Sprinkled throughout the entire book are too-many-to-count insights and advice from a man who has come to his knowledge the hard way and knows exactly of what he speaks. But what Coach Wade does better than any before him is his unbelievable progressions on every exercise and stretch. He breaks things down and tells you exactly how to proceed to get to whatever level of strength and development you want. and gives you the exact metrics you need to know when to go to the next level.

Coach Wade is the way to go. What's cool to his approach is he has "helpers" to help you get to the harder stuff. Basically that means anyone between 8 and 80 can do this workout. That's amazing, really.
To apply the CC's and CC2's routine in your life, you'll need patience to see the results, but you can sleep damn sure that, if you put the time and effort needed, you will have results that will last for your entire life.
If you can, please search for the Convict Conditioning FAQ and Convict Conditioning CHARTS (I found on Scribd). This 2 PDF files answered a loot of questions that I had about the implementation of the routine.
Also, I highly recommend that you buy the Convict Conditioning (the first book) BEFORE you buy this book.
Last advice, DO NOT "workout" to get fit. Workout with a specific goal in mind. Perform 1x5 One-Arm Handstand Push-up, is an excelent goal. ;)
Ps: Sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker.
First I was a little concerned about the price.
But now I own the books since beginning of March.
I do my regular workout on the basis of three sources:
- Be Your Own Gym (Mark Lauren)
- Core Performance and Core Performance Essentials (Mark Verstegen)
- Convict Conditioning 1 + 2
I take the basis program out of Core Performance.
Replace all device dependend exercises with ones out of 'Be Your Own Gym' and take the major ideas of periodization out of it.
To generate brute strength Convict was the missing link. So I replaced the strength circuit of Core Performance in an intelligent manner with the exercises of Convict.
My intention was to change over to body weight training completely to fixe my back and shoulder pain this way.
I was and I am successfull - I think due to the more natural movement in some cases.
I do my workout in our garden every day.
So every device I pull out of the garage I have to put back afterwards.
Avoiding this, my kind of training now requires a minimum of equipment.
Also I wanted to have a training program for years without boring every-day-stuff.
My training now has lots of variety, it's interesting every day.
The book describes "only" six major exercises.
This six exercises are enough to transform your whole body,
The book tells why the "big six" are enough.
Each exercise has 10 steps of progression.
Each progression step has at least three levels - this means: number of reps.
The first progression step of each exercise can really be done by any human beeing no matter if you're 8 or 80.
The author tells you how to work through the exercises step by step, level by level.
He is quite clear in giving criterions to proceed to the next level.
He gives some kind of rudimental plans - this is why I fall back to other sources for means of periodization.
The 10th progession state - phuu.... well, I don't know anyone in person who is able to press out even one single rep in good shape. But I'm heading for it - the eighth or so is also not really bad.
But the most important advice in Convict is to be patient.
I fully agree.
Followed by: Just start. Stop excusing.
Do your workout regularily. Increase intensity gently.
You will get strong rather fast, if your slow and patient enough.
Otherwise you may suffer from any pain.
Last but not least the book is written in a kind of sloppy way - assume you won't put it aside as long as you haven't read the whole thing.
It's really motivating !!
So thanks to the author, whoever Paul (the Coach) Wade really is.
This stuff works. At least for me.
Hence it's worth every EURO and Cent I paid for it.
I really hope I was able to make myself clear.
I'm not a native speaker.
So please come back if you have questions or remarks.
