Effective book on calisthenics.

Key takeaways:

- Greasing the groove. Instead of training to failure, only do exercises with perfect form. That's why it's called an EXERCISE. Cued me to purchase a pull-up bar, on which I do pull-ups until I tire with perfect form many times a day. Idea is to become strong without going to exhaustion.

- Fundamental calisthenics exercises are the pistol squat and one handed push-up. Book introduces a wide range of exercises to build up to these and to increase difficulty / resistance. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0938045555, Paperback)

Have you noticed -- the greater a mans skill, the more he achieves with less? And the skill of strength is no exception. From the ancient days of Greek wrestling, to the jealously guarded secrets of Chinese Kung Fu masters, to the hard men of modern spec ops, warriors and allied strongmen have developed an amazing array of skills for generating inhuman strength. But these skills have been scattered far and wide, held closely secret, or communicated in a piecemeal fashion that has left most of us frustrated and far from reaching our true strength potential. Now, for the first time, Russian strength expert and former Spetsnaz instructor Pavel has gathered many of these devastating techniques into one highly teachable skill set. In 'The Naked Warrior' Pavel reveals exactly what it takes to be super-strong in minimum time -- when your body is your only tool. Gain more brute strength in days than you did in years of bodybuilding or calisthenics; Discover the martial secrets of instant power generation -- for rapid surges in applied strength; Discover how to get a world-class powerlifters quality workout -- using your body only; Master the one-arm/one-leg push-up for crushing upper body force; Forge super-piston, never-quit legs with the Spetsnaz favourite "Pistol"; Discover the magic of "GTG" -- guaranteed the worlds most effective strength routine; Be tow-truck strong -- yet possess the rugged looks of a stripped-down racer; Get a harder, firmer, functionally-fitter body -- and be as resilient as hell whatever you face; No gym, no weights, no problem -- get a dynamite strength workout at a moments notice -- wherever you are.
