Opening the book, I understood 70% of the exercises immediately. It's all simple stuff. The only difficult stuff is the variations of some of the original exercises, but everything is illustrated and explained perfectly.
Can't do an exercise like the pistol squats or handstand pushups? There's a guide to build you up to that in there. Want a cool story about an exercise or not motivated to do a weird exercise? HERE'S A STORY ABOUT MIKE TYSON DOING IT!
An engaging, uncomplicated, well laid out read. Absolutely recommend this book to anyone wanting to get in to bodyweight training. You won't regret it, especially the with the great price too.
Jailhouse Strong is an excellent book for anyone looking to transform their physique, build raw, pure strength, or just get into better overall shape and feel healthier. The book delves into the history and methodology of the individuals who have built incredible physiques while behind bars, as well as providing numerous examples of training routines that range from bodyweight movements (with progression guidelines for working up to the challenging movements) as well as good old-fashioned barbell movements and intensity techniques.
Josh also details how to get a great training session in with minimal space and equipment. For people who travel but want to continue making progress in their physical journey, these workouts can be done anywhere, even in a hotel room. After all, if a prisoner in a cramped cell can make progress, anyone can.
Josh's methods combine tried-and-proven methods, cutting-edge science and old-fashioned hard, brutal work. In addition to my normal programming, Josh has begun to incorporate methods from Jailhouse Strong into my routine, and I am already pleased with the results.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to take their training to the next level.
This book is so much more than the workout books you see on the market. Josh provides you with actual workout plans that are tried and true. They work! He has used them on his clients with unparalleled results. An added bonus - Josh's sense of humor. He presents information in an interesting and entertaining manner. You will not be bored when you read this book! He makes learning how to get results from your workout interesting and entertaining!
