There’s no secret in this book, Great book, teaches the gymnastic strength exercises. There’s no secret in this book, routine, or plans that justify the price. The author repeatedly tells us stories of how strong and how much his athletes can do.
Justifying to us that his method works, which came across as gimmicky. Jul 02, Salvador rated it it was amazing. The best body weight training book I’ve read so gymnastid.
