Kurzbeschreibung

Stretching and Flexibility Secrets To Help Unlock Your Body—Be More Mobile, More Athletic, More Resilient And Far Stronger…

Picture yourself with the elegant lines and eye-catching flexibility of a Himalayan Yogi. Watch yourself move with the fluidity and grace of a great dancer. Feel your strength as you power into and hold the most challenging of bodyweight exercise moves. See yourself ripple with the muscular, toned, symmetrical physique that signals the perfect marriage of form and function.

All of this could be yours—with the right mindset, the right knowledge, the right mentor and the right blueprint for success. Enter Al Kavadlo—and his hard-earned skills in the world of bodyweight exercise training. This is a man who walks the walk of his talk—and then some. A man who models the capabilities and qualities of a bodyweight master—while also being able to teach and inspire others in the most practical of manners.

In Stretching Your Boundaries, Al provides a blueprint that anyone can follow to achieve supreme physical elegance, mobility and strength—and to amp up their game in any aspect of physical performance.

Stretching Your Boundaries could have been called “Yoga Meets Calisthenics”. Or “Zen and the Art of Stretch”. Because—as with the best of the physical culturists—there is a deep, yet lightly-carried spiritual “vibe” to Al’s teachings. There is a humble joy and a sense of well-being emanating from the man—that speaks volumes about his program.

If you really want to succeed as a physical culturist—and if you really want to live a healthy, happy, long life—then the right combination of spirit, wisdom and hard, skilled practice is the essential recipe, or template if you will. In Stretching Your Boundaries you will find the time-tested tools you need to continue cultivating yourself as a magnificent human artwork.

Fitting Al Kavadlo’s message is the medium: the book has gorgeous design and stunning photography—that will inspire you for years to come.


“The ultimate bodyweight mobility manual is here! Al Kavadlo’s previous two Dragon Door books, Raising the Bar and Pushing the Limits, are the most valuable bodyweight strength training manuals in the world. But strength without mobility is meaningless. Al has used his many years of training and coaching to fuse bodyweight disciplines such as yoga, martial arts, rehabilitative therapy and bar athletics into the ultimate calisthenics stretching compendium. Stretching Your Boundaries belongs on the shelf of any serious athlete—it’s bodyweight mobility dynamite!—"COACH" PAUL WADE, author of Convict Conditioning
"An absolutely masterful follow up to Raising the Bar and Pushing the Limits, Stretching Your Boundaries really completes the picture. Both easy to understand and fully applicable, Al's integration of traditional flexibility techniques with his own unique spin makes this a must have. The explanation of how each stretch will benefit your calisthenics practice is brilliant. Not only stunning in its color and design, this book also gives you the true feeling of New York City, both gritty and euphoric, much like Al's personality."
—MIKE FITCH, creator of Global Bodyweight Training

“Stretching Your Boundaries is a terrific resource that will unlock your joints so you can build more muscle, strength and athleticism. Al's passion for human performance radiates in this beautifully constructed book. Whether you're stiff as a board, or an elite gymnast, this book outlines the progressions to take your body and performance to a new level."
—CHAD WATERBURY, M.S., author of Huge in a Hurry

"Al Kavadlo has done it again! He's created yet another incredible resource that I wish I had twenty years ago. Finding great material on flexibility training that actually enhances your strength is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. But look no further, because Stretching Your Boundaries is exactly what you need."—JASON FERRUGGIA, Strength Coach

4.0 von 5 Sternen Yoga Meets calysthenics 8. April 2014

Eine interessante Ergänzung für jeden, dem funktionelle Fitness wichtig ist. Der fünfte Stern fehlt nur wegen nicht ganz so einsteigertauglichen Beschreibungen

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr anspruchsvoll 18. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch liest sich flüssig und einfach - viele Wiederholungen unterstreichen die Botschaft.
Theoretisch gibt es wenig Neues, aber gute Vergleiche/Bilder. Der Übungsgruppen ist sehr anspruchsvoll und ein Großteil der Progressionen wird nur von sehr ausgebildeten Athleten zu meistern sein.
Wer als Athlet ernsthaft seine Beweglichkeit verbessern möchte, der findet hier gute Anweisungen - fûr “Jens Jedermann“ wird es zu anspruchsvoll sein.
Preisempfehlung fûr Athleten!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Endlich... 4. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
... ein Buch zum diesem Thema, das realistische Bewegungsumfänge verlangt. Klar, ein paar der Posen sind definitiv anspruchsvoll und erst nach einiger Übung erreichbar, aber man findet eigentlich immer etwas, das den eigenen jetzigen Möglichkeiten entspricht.
Die Aufzählung der Übungen birgt eine eigene Logik, wenn man die im hinteren Fünftel Routinen nachschlägt, und ist, soweit ich das mit meinem recht begrenzten Wissen nachvollziehen kann, vollständig genug um lange und mit Spaß zu üben.
Das ist nämlich auch für mich das Geheimnis, warum dieses Buch für mich so gut funktioniert. Es macht nach etwas Eingewöhnungszeit tatsächlich Freude, die Posen auszuführen, auf ein paar Details einzugehen, sich vielleicht etwas mehr zu strecken und zu verdrehen.
Es ist dem Autor dabei aber bewusst, dass seine, für mich noch genügend ausführlichen, Beschreibungen und Einzelheiten der Posen nicht genug sein werden, um auf lange Sicht alles perfekt ausführen zu können, sollte man diese Ambition haben, und daher empfiehlt er auch den Besuch eines richtigen Kurses.
Für mich hat sich der Kauf und das Folgen der Routinen bis jetzt definitiv gelohnt. Ich bin eindeutig beweglicher geworden und meine Schulterschmerzen sind gänzlich verschwunden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another arrow for the body weight exercising quiver... 26. Januar 2014
Von TheModernMonk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I got into Al Kavadlo's resources as a minimalist looking to apply minimalism to all areas of my life including health and exercise; and as a frequent traveller sick of hotel gyms and missing workouts. Al would have to be one of world's experts in body weight exercising. What is fantastic about this book is the first part - a complete manifesto about stretching and stretch safety. If you had any doubts about stretching, this part of the book is worth the money alone. As usual, the second part outlines in careful instruction and exceptional photographs the "how to" for an incredible number of stretches and variations. How easy is the book to use? I read this book the morning I bought it, and began using it in my weekly routine that afternoon!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A practical, enlightening approach to mobility training for strength training 29. Januar 2014
Von R. Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Firstly, this book is the perfect complement to Raising the Bar and Pushing the Limits. It does exactly what it promises: flexibility training for extreme calisthenics strength! However, this book also expands upon Al's philosophy behind training and its relation to the well being of the human body.

Frankly, the knowledge presented in this book is very difficult to acquire on your own by just researching around the internet. While you can go on YouTube and find some stretching demonstrations, Al Kavadlo has gone off of many years of experience in both fitness and spirituality, and brings a very organic and inclusive approach to writing this book. Furthermore, the photography and artwork are top-notch and very cool. Al's style shines through possibly even better than in his previous books!

If you have an idea of how good this book *could* be, do not worry because it is everything you can expect and probably more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent resource for anyone looking to increase mobility, range and flexibility 5. Februar 2014
Von MR SCOTT MACEY - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you've read any of Al's books before, you'll know what to expect. If you haven't well here it is. Expect an amazing amount of information, presented in a totally accessible and non intimidating way aimed at any level of gym user, bodyweight athlete, or fitness enthusiast.
The presentation couldn't be clearer in this book and includes sample routines for different parts of the body to give them a full stretch and manipulation.
The book is divided into 3 sections.
Section 1: The Stretch Manifesto.
This section clearly outlines the theory of stretching, the history, and why we do the stretches we do, and how the body best reacts to different styles of stretches. This is no short section and provides a welcome explanation of what we can do to best improve the efficiency of the time we spend stretching.
Section 2: The Stretches
A huge selection of different exercises and stretches to best get the increase in range of motion that you are looking for and the flexibility that you desire
Section 3: Sample Routines
This section compiles several different stretches for different parts of the body so you can immediately get to work on your specific problem area.
All in all this a great resource for anyone with an active interest in exercise and mobility. It complements Al's other books, Raising The Bar, and Pushing The Limits perfectly, to be a very complete set of health and fitness manuals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Missing Puzzle Piece! 23. Januar 2014
Von ALH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have the eBook version from Dragon Door, Al really fills in the missing pieces with Stretching Your Boundaries. What I found most impressive was the way that he was able to present the mobility/flexibility information within the context of calisthenics, matching up simple and advanced exercises with the stretches most helpful for them. This should help end my struggle with flexibility -- with all these new (and very ancient) ideas, along with the motivation (the calisthenics moves) to keep up the practice. Another awesome one from Al Kavadlo!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Stretching Can Make You Stronger 7. Februar 2014
Von Matthew Arieta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I did not order this from Amazon, but did receive a complimentary copy of the PDF, which I'm looking at as I write this. One caveat: I'm a big Al Kavadlo fan. He's a very cool, knowledgeable trainer, that makes himself highly accessible. At 40 years of age, mobility and stretching have become critical components of my personal fitness regiment. As you get older, maintaining mobility is no longer a luxury, it's a necessity. However, what Stretching Your Boundaries teaches us is the value a full range of motion can have at any age, for any kind of athletic training,

OVERVIEW
Al opens the book with the "Stretch Manifesto". In a nutshell, it answers the question of "why stretch?" It discusses how a full range of motion can unlock our training potential, while helping to reduce wear & tear. He helps to dispel the myth that yoga is merely weird, esoteric postures, and that it actually offers a lot of value to anyone endeavoring to be athletic.

As an aside, just last year the NFL offered yoga to a select group of players, fully expecting them to think it wasn't "manly enough", or that it didn't really offer much for hardcore professional athletes. Quite the opposite happened. The players loved it, and have requested the program not only continue, but be expanded. Okay, done with the anecdote, and back to the review...

Just as there's no one perfect diet or fitness system for every single person, there's no one perfect way to stretch. However, there is a way of eating, working out, and stretching that's just right for you as an individual. Stretching Your Boundaries informs us on how we can tailor stretching and mobility to further our personal athletic goals.

PROS
This is the best looking, best laid out, most friendly to use Al Kavadlo book yet
Every page is loaded with full color photos of both men and women doing the stretches
Clear explanation of each movement, including common mistakes, which is very helpful
Plenty of Al's personal training wisdom in callout boxes
Al explains which calisthenics each stretch will benefit, which I really like

CONS
I'm going to keep giving Al's books 4-stars (really 4.5 but Amazon won't let me) until he makes the T.O.C, and Routines more user friendly. Please give me page #s for the movements in the table of contents, and in the sample routines, so I don't have to go hunting. Put links in the PDF so I can click and go right to each stretch.

CONCLUSION
This is a nearly perfect book on stretching for the athletically inclined. Highly recommended. On a personal note as a 40 year old, do yourselves a huge favor, and learn about stretching and mobility as early as you can. It has life long benefits!
