Does marketing increase or decrease the value of the product?
Which, and why?
I have this book! Read it, use it, love it--I don't condone crime, but the book really isn't about that so fair enough...
I read lots of crap talked about the book before I ordered it (it's not cheap). It makes me smile how so many people slag this book off before reading it...saying that it's useless, convicts know nothing, etc.
In reality, I don't know of anyone who hasn't read the book and learned a huge amount. It's sure helped my wrestling. (Imagine Matt Furey's stuff...on STEROIDS!)
The review above is wonderful IMHO and right on the money!!
About time we heard from the author.
@permalost: Your RIGHT!!! It DOES sound like something Matt Fury Would say! (Sorry matt, loved your carpal tunnel stuff):happy:
Ok, so this book is like Matt Furey's stuff on steroids?
Matt's stuff= Hindu pushups, Hindu Squats, deep breathing. And that on steroids would be....?
Muslim pushups, muslim squats, and kirby style suction breathing?
That said, i got a shock when I got convict Conditioning...it's radically different. With Furey, you just keep adding reps. On and on. His callistenics approach is mainly endurance-based, and I figured thats all there was really...that for strength you needed weights.
Convict Conditioning takes the weights/strength mindset and applies it to callisthenics. Instead of just doing one exercise, say push ups, for reps, he gives you ten (ultimately more like 40) diff push up exercises, The first one is easy. The last one is ridiculously hard.
You work your way up, like addign weight to a bar. It works, has eaqsed my bad knee and is fun. That's all :fuckyea:
If any of you are interested in looking at the book, I found it online.
