by the eponymous Paul Wade, whether he exists or not.

Wade's first book, Convict Conditioning, was an awe-inspiring classic. Because of his teachings, I can do things now at 32 than I could at 18 when I was bench pressing almost 300 lbs (not a lot, I know, but I'm a little guy). This book is awesome, too, but not in the same way.

In the first CC Wade taught you how to work the big muscle groups using body weight training. This book focuses on the unseen, yet in some ways more important aspects lik...more

I enjoyed “Convict Conditioning 2: Advanced Prison Training Tactics For Muscle Gain, Fat Loss And Bulletproof Joints” by Paul “Coach” Wade. Like the first book, I could have done without a lot of the “prison” aspects and talk, but I did like the information presented on training. I've been incorporating some things from this book and the first one into my own training.

This book is a continuation of the first, and it will help readers if they have read the first book and understand the training p...more
This is a great supplement to the superb advanced calisthenics course outlined in the first Convict Conditioning book. You should absolutely, positively read the first book before reading this one. Not only does the previous book outline the principals involved, but it has the indispensable Big Six exercises. The exercises in Convict Conditioning 2 are compliments, not substitutes for those Big Six. In context as a follow-up, it is very good. It covers the muscles of the neck, calves, forearms,...more
He did it again. Check out Convict Conditioning, this adds into that but starts to specify more complex areas of development. I love how natural this is. Granted, you have to have patience but the payoff is spectacular.
I own Convict Conditioning and love it! The brutal simplicity of the book and the insights into “old time” training philosphy make it enjoyable to read. I really enjoyed how your whole body can basically be trained to any level you aspire to with 6 basic bodyweight movements. I always enjoy reading about Paul Wade!

With CC 2 You will be able to find training information for forearms and grip, calves, lateral muscle chain, neck, joints, mobility/flexibility, stretching, tendons and ligaments stren...more

Una continuación del anterior, que se centra en aspectos complementarios del entrenamiento, que no por ello son menos importantes. El libro añade, a los 6 grandes ejercicios anteriores, varios ejercicios para trabajar el agarre y la fuerza en las manos y antebrazos, la cadena de músculos de los lados del cuerpo, y multitud de métodos para fortalecer el cuello y las articulaciones. La parte final del libro es una serie de reflexiones sobre tratamiento de lesiones, dieta, y otras cuestiones donde...more

Part 2 of a much needed expansion to the CC way of building your best Framework, I particularly enjoyed the simple and straightforward 'Trifecta' of active stretches listed as an addendum to the regular strength circuits. The exercises are few in number, but infinitely expanded into progressive variations that will have you gym free and jacked, for Life. A motivational read to a system that you can maintain and enjoy well past your retirement. Can't wait for CC3!

A good book also fills in some gaps the CC had that the Naked Warrior by Pavel didn't pick up. Mostly about training muscles that need special attention to develop strength like grip, calves, obliques, and neck as well as including some recovery information that seems helpful. There is good progression with everything but can be broken down more and ramped up with Naked Warrior principles.
Still reading. It´s for whole life.
Hát, van amit csak kíváncsiságból átfutottam, mert nemhogy egyelőre, valszeg sohasem fogom a gyakorlatban megvalósítani, legfeljebb ha beköszönt valami Kvantumtolvaj-féle világ =) A sarokemelős résznek meg pont hogy bele kellett volna az első kötetbe is férnie szerintem, mondjuk kevesebb börtönvagány frázis árán. =D

A great follow up to the first book, with ton's of more added info that can be added to anybodys training arsenal.
Well, I just want to have this book appear on my FB.
