    I think I got the point. A book wrote about exercises that everyone knows about, but tried to make people think that there are some kind of super cool exercises that convicts use. When in reality, there are not any. It is a marketing ploy.

    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!!

    That sounds just like something Matt Furey would say.

    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....?

    Well, first off don't let me make you think I'm dissing furey. I know not everyone likes his ****, but I have some of his courses and I think he has stuff to teach.

    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.

    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
