This initially consisted with a lot internet reading, youtube watching and self practice, while I did improve I feel like I could do better. So I set out to find a book (or program) that breaks down gymnastics training progressions. The first edition of the book sounded good, but disorganized - after a little research I found that the second edition was only a few weeks away from release. I so decided to wait and get this book as soon as released. What can I say other than wow... I had NO CLUE how much I didn't know when it came to the subject of body weight training/skills progression. The amount of information in detail, the coverage of all topics relating to the subject.. just wow - this book is worth every penny of the $50 I paid.
The best part is that not only does the book expertly cover topics of gymnastic progression, but also programming workouts to reach a progression goal, injury awareness/avoidance/rehabilitation, and so much more.
The author is the real deal. This is a guy who did gymnastics a college level and went on to get his PhD in Physical Therapy. He clearly has a deep passion and understanding for the topics covered and I'm really impressed with what he put together. I've also visited his reddit sub and while I've never personally asked him a question, the author is in there answering questions all the time - if you're considering learning more about body weight fitness and or gymnastics progression look no further, this is the book.
