What is more satisfying than OWNING a primally powerful, functionally forceful and brute-strong body? A body that packs a punch. A body that commands attention with its etched physique, coiled muscle and proud confidence…A body that can PERFORM at the highest levels of physical accomplishment…
Well, both Al Kavadlo—the author of Pushing the Limits!—and his brother Danny, are supreme testaments to the primal power of body culture done the old-school, ancient way—bare-handed, with your body only. The brothers Kavadlo walk the bodyweight talk—and then some. The proof is evident on every page of Pushing the Limits!
Your body is your temple. Protect and strengthen your temple by modeling the methods of the exercise masters. Al Kavadlo has modeled the masters and has the “temple” to show for it. Follow Al’s progressive plan for primal body power within the pages of Pushing the Limits!—follow in the footsteps of the great bodyweight exercise masters—and you too can build the explosive strength and possess the magnificent physique you deserve.

Ein tolles, lockeres Buch über die Grundübungen des Bodyweight Trainings (mit Ausnahme der Übungen an der Stange).

Mit gefällt Als Schreibstil und wie er die Übungen beschreibt. Die Basisübungen werden ansprechend erklärt und mit qualitativen Bildern illustiert. Dabei gefällt mir, wie Al auf unkomplizierte Weise die Varitiationen mit den Basisübungen verknüpft.

Allerdings kommt mir das Thema Trainingspläne etwas zu kurz. Zwar gibt es grobe Richtlinien für die dynamischen Übungen, doch gibt Al nur wenig Hinweise, wie sich die isometrischen Übungen in den Trainingsplan einbauen lassen.

Ingesamt ist es jedoch ein tolles Nachschlage- und Inspirationswerk.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Toolbox of progressive bodyweight exercises 16. April 2013
Von Matthew Arieta - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I ordered this directly from Dragon Door, but I do own the book and am looking at it as I write this. One caveat: I'm a big Al Kavadlo fan. He's a very cool, knowledgable person, that makes himself highly accessible. In fact, he offers so much free material on this website and YouTube that I've never felt the need to buy anything. My current fitness journey is going outside and using my own bodyweight for resistance, and for that this book is perfect. It's worth noting though that most of these moves could also just as easily be performed while at home, or in a gym setting.

Al focuses on progressions for three of the best compound bodyweight movements: the pushup, the squat, and the bridge. Using these movements will give you a real command of your own body, reduce the chance for injury in daily life, and you'll look great at the beach as an added bonus.

Every page is loaded with full color photos of both men and women doing the exercises
Great explanation of each movement
Plenty of Al's wisdom in callout boxes
Excellent toolbox of progressions from novice, to intermediate, to advanced, to elite
Because of the progressions, anyone at any level of fitness can find a challenge

The sample routines are in an appendix (different section) than the chapter on using these movements in a workout. I'm lazy and don't want to flip back and forth
The workout routines don't have page #s for the movements, so you have to dig through the book to find them
No index with page #s for each exercise

This is a nearly perfect book on bodyweight training. My only quibble is that there wasn't more effort put into the routines. Give me 3 different workouts for each level, using different combinations of these moves, instead of just 1. Give me an index so I can easily find the exercises I want to try. Those few things aside, this is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding bodyweight strength book 15. August 2013
Von gt surber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Al Kavadlo has produced another fine book (cf "Raising the Bar" by Al). This is a beautiful book. The pictures are of amazing quality. If you want an exercise book for your coffee table, this is it. But they do demonstrate very well exactly the points that Al is making in this book. Most of the pictures are of Al and his brother, Danny. In the early part of the book, Al includes pictures of a few women doing the workouts.

Al has given us basic exercises for beginners, and on to valid, possible, achievable progressions to elite athleticism. Every exercise is described clearly and the pictures demonstrate the exercise very well. The necessary warnings and precautions are prominent. The routines are well thought out and well outlined, easy to follow. Al has concentrated on pushups, squats and inversions with the variations of each. If you want to achieve human flags and dragon flags, this is the book to use. Like "Convict Conditioning" by Paul Wade, this is an excellent presentation of how to get strong and ripped with body weight exercises. The two books vary tremendously in style and methods of presentation and in exercises concentrated on. Both are excellent, just different approaches for different people. Another author with excellent books on bodyweight is Logan Christopher. If one were to collect these three authors, one would have all the essential information on body weight conditioning necessary. Each is complete into itself, but with understanding of reading and practicing of all three, one would be an expert on body weight conditioning. And, if following the training in the books, be in magnificent condition and shape.

A good buy.

Pushing The Limits! is literally a reference guide to strength training without any equipment, at any level. You can use the content within this book to train your entire body, or to supplement other training with equipment (a pull up bar, weights...), and you will see improvements at any fitness and strength level. PTL! covers what Al considers to be the "Big Three" of floor exercises: push ups, squats, and inversions. He presents a wide variety of excellent progressions, at all difficulty levels.

Al has a great writing style. Reading his books feels like having a friendly conversation. He presents the exercises almost as a showcase, explaining why the each is beneficial, and very helpful mental cues on how to approach the moves to optimize your form. Furthermore, the book contains excellent high quality, full color photos of all of the exercises, clearly demonstrating the form. It's very accessible, even if all you're doing is flipping through and getting a quick look at the pictures during a workout.

Push ups include everything from the simpler variations such as the basic push up and diamond push up, to advanced variations such as freestanding handstand push ups, one arm push ups, and other, even more advanced variations that most people don't even know about.

As for squats, these go from the basic squat and lunge, to advanced one leg squats, even beyond the pistol squat. The hardest squat variation in this book, which is far harder than the pistol, is, as far as I know, exclusively presented by Al. I discussed it with him awhile ago, and neither of us had seen it even being discussed anywhere online. A few months later he made a video of it, and now it's in this book. That's it.

Al defines inversions as "any posture that involves your heart being higher than your head". This includes a series of bridging progressions, the hardest of which I've only seen presented here, as well as hand balancing skills including handstands, headstands, and less common variations, again, at least one of which I've only seen from Al.

In addition to all of that, Al includes two appendices: one with "bonus exercises" and one with sample routines and programming. The bonus exercises can be used to add variety to your training. Particularly, many of them are excellent core exercises, which is great if you don't feel that the progression you are at in the big three exercises are offering you enough core work. Some are also excellent skill challenges, such as the elbow levers.

Al believes that you should "listen to your body and design your own program based on intuition". I happen to agree with him here. People will have different goals, different schedules, different abilities. Adapting a feel for what you can safely do while still pushing yourself will allow you to progress faster. The second appendix on routines is essentially meant to be used as a test or a template from which to customize your own workouts; have fun with it.

Overall, Pushing The Limits! has many great exercises, some exclusive, and is very approachable to read or to just flip through as a quick reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Basically Great 10. Februar 2014
Von Peter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love calisthenics (story time!): When I was a boy in the 1980s Arnold was Conan and I wanted to get big and strong. Mom didn't want to buy me weights until I was a little older. My uncle, however, was quite willing to show me some basic calisthenic movements and a great foundation was built. I never got Arnold big (never juiced either) but I was always one of the stronger and more muscular guys in my circles and thus well enough respected and liked. Eventually I did get weights and like those workouts too (end of story time) and calisthenics are NOT a replacement for weights if you want to get REALLY BIG AND STRONG but they are safer, easier, cost far, far less time and money, etc. and so for anyone who isn't a pro athlete or action movie star the weights aren't really strictly speaking necessary.

OPINION: if you're a guy and think you need to get jacked to impress the ladies... just learn to speak (like person to person, not like a sleaze to a "date") and dance well.

Back to calisthenics: I love the growth it's seen recently and don't mind that people are capitalizing on that, it gets the word out.

Al is strong and able and does a great job of inspiring other. He practices what he preaches (unlike people who get jacked on gear and lipo and then show you some $39.95 ab gadget). He also explains the movements and cues well enough for this book to stand on it's own.

I paid $40 for this book. That's usual for Dragon Door and while it is steep as printed paperbacks goes I haven't ever felt let down by any purchase from them. In my estimation part of what I pay for is the guarantee that the author/product has been selected into a circle which will not permit poor quality work.

If anyone has read the Convict Conditioning books this book is going to be a lot of old territory, although different enough that I don't regret owning both. What is very different between this book and the CC books is the lack of structure in this one. There is very little discussion of sets and reps and no levels scheme. I like the "here is a way to make ____ easier/harder" approach and then letting the self-motivated person get creative with it all and find their own path. I know that's not for everyone and it's also not the surest, fastest way to progress and get strong but I enjoy it more--it makes "working out" more like grownup playtime than "working out".

If you want to get stronger, faster or need/prefer strict regimentation then the original Convict Conditioning book is a better choice than this one (I would honestly also suggest CC if you want to get started with body weight training and don't know where to start, what good form looks like, etc.). If you're more into fun and would like a calisthenics "program" that borrows more from tricking and gymnastics than pure strength training then Pushing the Limits! is likely the better option.

I really liked the photos and spreads. A snobby photographer friend of mine doesn't (but he is really good at what he does and not afraid to point out faults in other peoples' work). There were two or three typographical errors that I noticed too... so if that sort of thing bugs you, or you're critical about photo composition, I suppose you might find greater fault with the book than I did.

Bottom line: Worth $40 if you're into or want to get into calisthenics.

I recommend it for anyone who 1) is interested in learning more about calisthenics and how to use easier/harder versions of similar exercises to get stronger, 2) anyone who is already into calisthenics and wants some familiar reading with a new twist 3) anyone wanting to add some trickier skills to their routine that is more fun and looks cooler than just pure strength work 4) any fan of Al or probably "Coach" Wade, 5) people practicing or familiar with Convict Conditioning and wanting to liven things up or get a new viewpoint on body weight workouts.

I would honestly recommend getting Convict Conditioning first, or together with Pushing The Limits! especially if 1) you want or need more structure, 2) are more purely interested in strength and athleticism than tricks, 3) want a far simpler program or 4) are totally new to calisthenics and don't have a clue where to start or what constitutes correct execution of the basic calisthenic movements.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kavadlo is the best so far 14. Juni 2013
Von BRIAN MAYNARD - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While I understand this book would not exist without Convict Conditioning, this book is every thing CC should have been but unfortunately wasn't. This book is intelligent and fun, well written and designed with out any of the over the top machismo and prison culture references of CC.
This is the body weight book I will and with out reservation recommend to anyone of any age. I will be returning to this book repetetely in the future for info and inspiration!
