So, I've read through the program. Very well laid out. I've been working out at gyms for several years and have gotten stronger and bigger. But, as I'm getting older (39) I'm really starting to investigate and appreciate body weight exercises and calisthenics. I'm less interested in "getting huge" and more into just plain getting strong as sh#t. It's becoming my opinion that doing these types of exercises are not only better on your body, but will make you stronger than throwing weight around at the gym. I also spent almost four years in our wonderful federal prison system. I was lucky enough to have a weight pile, but I kinda wish I'd had this program during that time. Better late than never. These exercises will take serious time and effort, but I'm looking forward to it. I may post more after a bit.
As a 62 year old man who has never done a pullup, thanks to this program I have progressed so much just in 7 weeks. I really recommend this program, you can train at home without expensive equipment. Also the writer explains the excercises very well. Just be patient and sometimes work around some of the levels, because you do need to do some stretching, specially if you are like me with less perfect spine etc. But the joy of getting stronger is huge. You need to also look into ketogenic diet and IF intermediate fasting if you like me need to loose bodyfat. Fantastic program, so glad I bought it.
I’m on week 9 now and seeing amazing results. The program was tough at first but my body has gotten used to it. I even joined a flag football league for extra cardio. Can’t wait for summer!
As a 40 something returning to working out, this program is great! I grew up with martial arts (Tae KwonDo and Okinawan Karate), I am no stranger to calisthenics, but started working out with weights and machines when I got to high school. At that age, I was able to do many things my friends who lifted were not capable, like L-sits, handstand pushups, planks, and upside down pull ups. I tried working out in gyms, but I got bored of them and preferred training at home and would rather utilize more functional movements. Today I ride my bicycle to work and drive only when needed. Luckily I have made it to my 40's without chronic injury or pain and I'd like to keep things that way. I have many friends who are gym rats who have not fared so well. I've always been impressed by gymnasts strength and their resulting physiques. It looks like one can get caught up with trying to progress too quickly, but take your time, perfect the motions and the strength and muscle will happen. My wife is a gym goer and she has recently visited the doctor for a shoulder injury. That's something I want to avoid. This program has revitalized my interest in getting fitter and stronger with calisthenics.
The Title May Sound Gimmicky but the Content is Rock-Solid The program is well-organized and very well-written. I'm now 70 years old and've been training for well over five decades---everything from gymnastics to triathlons---and I also done lots of routines having to do with diet and exercise. This program is hands-down the best I've ever seen on a specific physical-culture discipline---in this case bodyweight training. Having finally grown weary after years of trekking to the gym three days a week and dealing with weightlifting injuries, I recently began casting about for another way to train and as a result became interested in the notion of progressive calisthenics as an option. The program described in this program is so well-reasoned, well-researched, accessible and simple it has renewed my interest in working out. And while it is a great guide for a beginner in strength training, I assure you the program outlined within it will also challenge athletes at any level. Well done. I highly recommend it.
That's what I was looking for! A short program that would make me capable of adding some mass before this summer. I've struggled in the past with fake and cheap programs—instant delivery with original content. I'm thrilled with this purchase.
I'm an ectomorph who has been training for about two years without a significant result. I have heard of this guy who makes different workout programs on Instagram. I checked his website, and luckily I have chosen this one. The first week was tough. I've done it in two weeks. The second t=and the third was also challenging, but some results started to appear. I'm on the fourth week, and I noticed significant changes in my posture, endurance, and strength. The price isn't high, so it is totally worth giving it a try! I'm satisfied, coach.
I'm training in a gym with a coach who told me once that online programs are completely worthless because they share the same free content. I was convinced until I tried this program. Most of the information contained on this program are new to me, even if I'm training since 2011. I'm noticing some changes, especially in my shoulders and abs. I would like to change this review after finishing the program. I'm only using it for two weeks, and it does its job excellently.
I had worked with this in a kind of half-hearted way when I first got it a couple of months ago, then just set it aside. But about six weeks ago, I decided I needed to get SERIOUS with it to prepare myself for this summer. I set aside a morning to start with the first week's content, and I've found it easy for me. I did the daily workout five times a week, paying attention to the written instructions and diet and really taking them seriously. Some days the training was tough and hard to complete. Some days it is too easy. That's all right. Now, after finishing the whole workout, I look at myself in the mirror and confidently say that's it is worth it! I highly recommend it for beginners and intermediates.
I never get the motivation to workout but this is simply so user friendly and amazing that I'm enjoying working out. Already seeing results.
