Bodyweight exercises - that is the way to go. I used to be a gym rat - spending 6 days a week at the gym, 2 hours a go. I woke up one morning and just decided I couldn't face it and just like that, I didn't step into a gym for 2 years. Burnt out totally.

I then decided I wanted to restart my fitness regime and after doing lots of research decided bodyweight exercises were not only more practical, they also allow you to work out from home. I bought this book and a stand alone chin up bar. Al Kavadlo is an excellent teacher - if you have not seen his YouTube videos, do so. He's motivational and knows what he's talking about.

Master the correct basic technique and soon you'll be doing the variations. I love working out now.

I'm quite good at pull ups so I just wanted to learn the steps to take from the beginning really helped. As well as opening my mind to and how to do the further progressions. If your new to pull ups this book will teach you how to do it safely as well as progress to the next level just a great book to have in your Arsenal. Plus Al is the guy hands down

Excellent book - very motivating. I can't manage a full pull-up yet but heading towards it, not bad for a woman over 40!

Excellent book packed full of info. Well worth the kindle price. Not just bar movements too, which was a nice bonus. If you stuck just to the moves in this book, I suspect there would be enough to keep most people going for years. Highly recommended!

The one thing that I like about this book is it's simplicity, although it includes progressions for the exercises, Al's advice on getting strong, is just stick with the basic pull up and over time you will see results. No need to get complicated.
