Thanks, bearaab. I’ll check it.
@Al: Thanks for the reference.
It seems to me that calisthenics is one of the rare sports that do not have any restricted diet. People tend to eat a variety of food and still maintain their physique as well as strength. That, however, if you are at the advanced level of calisthenics. For beginners, especially the overweight, it is likely to be a matter of concern.
Thanks for the recommendation, Al. I will certainly look over the book for myself later since I dont want to just read books and do no actual workouts. It is true that 1 book is never enough, especially about this wide subject as calisthenics but at least I need to spend some time to really study and follow what is taught in the book to see it for myself.
Anyway, if you said so about the squat series of the CC, then I think I may pass the first exercise and go right to the second one.
Regarding the CC, I think there are many guys out there sharing your opinion as well. The paradox I see is that although many people claim the CC is the no.1 book for calisthenics and the book itself also assure that if you use what is taught in the book, you will be strong and muscular over the period, I however havent seen a lot of “convict conditioners” with amazing results.
Thanks again for the advice, Al :).
I am at the first level of the Squat series in the Convict Conditioning, the shoulderstand squat. After 2 sessions of working, I have some questions. First, I will tell you about my “unsual” findings:
– When I keep my body locked straight, I feel the pressure is very hard on my arms, especially the biceps. Moreover, I feel breathing is a bit hard as well.
– After doing the exercise, I suffered from a pain right below my neck whenever I pull my head backwards
So my questions are:
– Are the above “symptoms” normal when doing this exercise or is my form uncorrect?
– Does the body need to form straight line from the toe to the torso?
– Before I know of the Convict conditioning, I could do the squat without any problem. Therefore, can I pass this exercise and move on the the second one, jacknife squat? If not, is there any substitute for this exercise?
I’ll look over the book.
Thanks, TaaronFoote. Your answers are of more than help for me :D.
