Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Alex Zinchenko is a strength addict, coach and the author of the Rough Strength blog, where he shares his crazy ideas regarding training and nutrition. He is honest to toothache, straightforward like a train, and too daring to believe that heavy calisthenics, kettlebell and sandbag training along with intermittent fasting can deliver all the results you want.

The first few of these articles are a fascinating look into the philosophy and practice of how to train for advanced calisthenics. Figuring right up front are the examples of one arm handstand push up and the seldom done right (in Alex's opinion) one arm pushup. Alex wants the one arm pushup done with the feet together and the body level, making it much more difficult than what he claims is the common practice of having the feet spread and not holding the body level.
Then Alex moves into a series of articles and interviews on strength training in general. These are realistic oriented. He states he has no preference between bodyweight, dumb bells, kettle bells, sand bags and stone. He feel the goals of the individual does make some difference. Logan Christopher and Paul Wade, Edward of Barstarrz, Supersaiyan, Yahont) along with others are featured. There is lots of discussion of volume vs intensity vs frequency which ends up with checking the goals of the individual (strength, mass, body building, general fitness) and the status of the individual (age, health, history in regard to strength training) and recommending mixing up the practice and emphasis of volume, intensity and frequency to fit the individual.
Then Alex moves into diet discussions. Again, he is realistic and states that the end practice of the better diets is more protein, more vegetables, fewer carbs and no sugar or highly prepared foods. He does recommend a 30 day no sugar push to break the sugar addiction most of us have.
Alex closes with thoughts on carries (farmers, overhead, suitcase) and explosiveness, how to avoid wasting time, and smarter food choices.
The book is well written, very readable and written with a little humor. The center of the road realism on many topics is a breath of fresh air in the face of many other authors writing with certainty as to the benefits of one or the other side. There are over 20 references to specific YouTube videos which help explain his points. I would recommend this book to those moderately advanced in the various aspects of strength and body building and to coaches in these fields for a look at the related sports through Alex's eyes. At times his frankness and openness and bluntness are eye opening.
Alex is a self confessed strength addict and coach in the Ukraine.
